The Seventh Friend

Epic Fantasy
Date Published: April 1, 2014

 Hero. Monster. Saviour. Butcher. Madman. Recluse. Wolf Narak, the deadly and charismatic god of wolves, has earned all the names men give him, and since the climactic and bloody final battle of the Great War he has shunned the company of mortal men and withdrawn to his forest home. There he is troubled by dreams of blood and fire, tormented by memories of his own deeds.

But fate has not quite finished with the victor of Afael.
He receives an impossible message, and as he follows the trail a suspicion grows to a certainty within him. War is coming again, and Narak must leave his beloved wolves and once more take up his twin blades. Once again he must become the general of the six kingdoms, the terror of his enemies, a hero, a butcher, the bloodstained god.

My Review:
This is a great read for anyone that loves a good fantasy novel. I expected (and received) at lot of info about the world Narak lives in, since this was the start of something BIG. I can tell that this writer knows exactly what he is doing and has the WHOLE thing mapped out completely from start to finish. There is not a single word that is extraneous , everything means something and that kept me reading! 

I am totally sold on this series already! Loved the story and loved the world that Mr. Stead has built! The story flows, the characters are vivid, and the plot will keep you reading well past your bedtime!

Tim Stead

 Tim Stead was born in the UK, lived in Hong Kong, London, Hampshire, and eventually moved to New Zealand.
He wasted many years not writing, but now has the time to devote to it. He has written six books, three of which are available on Amazon (The Sparrow and the Wolf trilogy). The others will follow, as will editions for Createspace and Smashwords.
He writes fantasy because it is so open to the imagination, which is half the fun, and also because it permits exaggerated explorations of humanity and all its excesses.
He is a former avid scuba diver, a former beekeeper, and a very poor skier, archer and fencer.

Torn between reading and writing, but writing is winning.
He now spends most of his time writing, reading, planting trees, cutting them down, cutting them up, and trying to persuade people to read his books.
