Betrayal, love, and lycanthropy in the time of the CrusadesBased on one of the Lais of Marie de France, The Wolf Hunt is a breathtaking adventure that showcases, once again, Gillian Bradshaw’s respectability as both a historian and as a novelist.When Marie Penthièvre of Chalendrey is abducted from her Norman priory and taken to Brittany’s court, she vows never to dishonor her family’s ties by marrying a Breton brute. There is only one man who might change her mind: Tiarnán of Talensac, a handsome, skilled, and noble knight indeed. But Tiarnán does not love her, and when he marries a slip of a girl instead, Marie vows to become a nun as soon as she is able.But Tiarnán has a secret, and that slip of a girl betrays him once she learns of it. When Tiarnán disappears and is presumed dead, his widow marries his one time rival and assumes title to his land, which steadily begins to decline under her unskilled, merciless rule. Marie knows something is wrong, and only she is clear headed enough to rescue Tiarnán and return him to his rightful status. But can she do so before it is too late?Rich in romance, and intrigue, steeped in history and wonder, The Wolf Hunt is historical fiction at its best, by one of its most skilled practitioners.

4.0 The Wolf Hunt
Gillian Bradshaw is a favorite author of mine. You wouldn't mistake her works for literary fiction--they're not complex nor is her prose particularly stylish, but they are good reads--comfort food reading--because I enjoy her plots, historical settings and especially her characters. The novels I'd r...

5.0 The Wolf Hunt
For a medieval story about betrayal, its a rather lighthearted tale. Probably because it has quite a few intelligent and genuinely goodhearted people, though it has its share of Medieval Morons also. The characters and dialogue are probably why I've read it so many times, but also the fact that Brad...

The book is written beautifully. The prose is luminous, the historical details, sprinkled though the narrative, make the times of the Crusades stand alive, and the descriptions are vivid. And the characters populating the story are diverse and reflective of the Renaissance. BUT…The structure of this...
