Book Description

Mother of Wolves by Zoe Brooks

The Indie Book of the Day for 20th of May, 2013!

Genre: Literary, Fantasy

When the King of the Roads is betrayed by his uncle to his murderers, his wife Lupa finds herself alone in a man’s world of tribal politics and war. 

Everyone underestimates Lupa, if they consider her at all. They are making a mistake. Lupa has made a promise to her husband to avenge his death and Lupa is a woman of her word. Her quest takes her away from the tents of her travelling people to the town of the Others, where her husband’s eyeless head watches as she takes her first revenge.

Now on the run, through the marshes and rich farmland of the great river, Lupa hunts and is hunted by her husband’s murderers. On the estuary islands her sons and their protector are just one step ahead of the killers. But revenge is not simple and Lupa must face a choice, one which will have great consequences for her people. For this is more than a revenge story, it is the tale of the rise of a woman leader and the price she pays for that rise. It is the story of a travelling people, persecuted by settlers and their armies, and the woman who leads them at the time of their greatest peril.

Read Sample

When Zoe was a little girl her inventor father taught her to look at things another way, while her mother taught her to see dragons in the shapes of natural things. Zoe is still practicing what she was taught.

As a result Zoe is an award-winning British writer and poet. She spends half her life in a partly restored old farmhouse in the Czech Republic, where she writes all her novels and poetry.

Zoe aims to write popular books, which have complex characters and themes that get under the reader’s skin. She finds her experience of working with people on the edge of society an inspiration for her fiction.

She has a liking for books where fantasy and reality meet. Her favourite writers include Ursula Le Guin, Hilary Mantel, Angela Carter and Andrei Makine. Her favourite books include Jane Eyre, The Hummingbird’s Daughter, The Earthsea Quartet and Nights at the Circus.
