WOLFHOUND CENTURY Rises

Higgins_WolfhoundCentury-TPWOLFHOUND CENTURY released today in the US in hardcover, ebook, and audio formats. This brilliant debut by Peter Higgins is definitely one to check out so we’ve gone ahead and posted the first two chapters for you to read.

This alternate Russia shares similarities to the world we knew at the time of Stallin’s rise to power, but wild and mysterious magic has warped and changed the world in new and fantastic ways. “Sentient water, censored artists, mechanical constructs, old-fashioned detective work, and the secret police are all woven together in this rich and fascinating tapestry,” wrote Publishers Weekly in their starred review of the novel and that is only the tip of the iceberg. I encourage you to read this interview with Peter to find out more.

Praise for WOLFHOUND CENTURY:

“It has the suspense of classic spy thrillers, mixed with the strange and the bizarre found in any number of critically-acclaimed fantasists.” – Civilian Reader

“An alternate history that will grab you by the lapels and snap you to attention.” – io9.com

“Very dark, very gritty and very atmospheric. Wolfhound Century is also a book free of genre constraints, allowing for a great original and entertaining read. Top Notch stuff by Peter Higgins.” - The Founding Fields
