Product Description

Product Description

"The humans are weak. Their skin is soft, and their minds dull from years of safety. We are the vicious. We are the destroyers. Come the full moon, when our goddess watches our victory, we will taste of their blood!"


Wolf-men, savage creatures given humanoid form in an ancient war, mass along the Gihon River. Led by their packleader Redclaw, they seek to cross the river and claim a land of their own, slaughtering those that would stand in their way. Two paladins, Jerico of the god Ashhur, and Darius of the god Karak, must helm the desperate defense against the invasion. Their friendship will be tested as their gods resume an unending war, and their very faiths call for the death of the other. Together, friend or foe, they must face Redclaw's horde.

NIGHT OF WOLVES by David Dalglish
Can faith remain when the gods call for blood?

4.0 out of 5 stars Bargain - good read 27 July 2011
By LewDa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw this book for a mere 50p and thought, since i'm between books at the moment I'd give it a try. Seeing no reviews and having never heard of this author i didn't expect much.

I was pleasantly surprised.

This is a well written and enjoyable book that was essentially very easy to read. I feel he has a great platform for what could be a very interesting series.

I would say though, that is not up there with the greats, GRRM, Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson etc, so dont expect a life changing read. BUT....for 50p (on kindle) this is a book WELL WORTH the read and i had no regrets in my spur of the moment buy and have already purchased the second in the series. To those reading this i bet you won't regret it either.


(infact i would have payed more for it based on how much i enjoyed it)

1.0 out of 5 stars Potential, but unrealised 16 Sep 2014
By Jack
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having been disappointed by David Dalglish in the past, with the first of his Half Orcs Series, I was hoping that Night of Wolves might be slightly better. Unfortunately, it was not. The story was different, and had potential, but it was hampered by poor character development and some weak writing.
The thing I found worst about this book was that the point of view from which the story was told jumped around a lot, which meant that I struggled to form any kind of emotional attachment to them. The only characters which seemed to have any kind of personality were the two paladins, Jerico and Darius but even then, only when it served the story.
As with The Weight of Blood, the story had the potential to be good, with the plot maintaining a suitable pace throughout, something which made the book readable.
I’ve now read two books by Davd Dalglish, from two separate series, and enjoyed neither. I’ll not be reading any more of them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Starts slow but improves later on 15 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for free so there was no financial risk in giving it a try. Like one of the previous reviewers I also found this book slow at first and hard to get into. Some chapters didn't really engage me. As the plot unfolded though things became more interesting. I thought the main characters were fairly well-written. On the whole I'd recommend this as a read for general fantasy fans, and it was enough to convince me to want to read others by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fight between light and dark 2 May 2013
By humanitysdarkerside VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
Jerico's charm lies in his red hair, according to himself. As a Paladin of Ashhur, he fights for light/life/order. As fate would have it he has actually befriended a traditional Ashhurian enemy - a Paladin of Karak. Karak stands for dark/death (non-life)/chaos. Darius thinks his charm lies in his personality. These guys are really supposed to try to kill each other. Instead they are working together for the good of the village they live in and both of them struggle with their consciences because of it.

On the other side of the river that is next to the village Durham a clan of wolf-men live (see picture above). Well actually they are wolf-people because there are wolf-women too. The wolf-people are desperate to get away from the Waste (the place where they live). To do so they will even gather their clans together into a unit led by a wolf-king and try to attack the human side of the river.

Both Jerico and Darius are interesting personalities. Their struggles with their beliefs of what they are supposed to be like make for interesting tension in the novel. But the really fun parts come in the action that the wolf-people engender. We all know that I like action and "Night of Wolves" has plenty of it. The tone in the first novel of "The Paladins" is lighter than the tone in "The Weight of Blood". Interesting to see the difference between the two. I like authors who veer from formulas used with one character to try on something new. Good on you Mr. Dalglish.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to see here follks 29 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As the book was free, and the author a best-seller in the independent category, I thought I'd give this a try. To be fair, I was fairly certain I wouldn't like it going in, but I was hoping for some surprises. It's unpretentious, generic fantasy with plenty of action and it's written well enough, so it's ok if you don't ask any questions and want a quick read, but there's much better out there (even in the same category). Just about lives up to the genre its perpetuating--R A Salvatore-clone D&D fodder.

Some books suffer from too much world-building, but this suffers a bit from too little--or, at least, the world is too banal to transport you. It's unclear how this rustic settlement fits into the larger world, except that it is across a poorly-defended river from hordes of generic fantasy monsters, and gets its food delivered by boat(?). It is basically a fronteir tale, with wolf-men substituted for Indians attacking the town, and the paladins for the gunslingers protecting the settlers. The relationship between the two paladins is good, but throwing in a few minor protagonists distracts things, and I ended up on the side of the wolves...

2.0 out of 5 stars Gave up. 17 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did try to read this book several times but I just could not get into the story at all. I enjoy books of this genre and I do read quite a bit on my Kindle and "real" books, this story just failed to capture my attention or my imagination in any way whatsoever.
