Plot SummaryEdit

Bruno's cover

Original Cover Art 2003. Artwork by Bruno Krippahl.

On the day Sylvester Logan James was born, his mother died. His father was killed by a werewolf when the boy was just thirteen, leaving him an orphan. Taken in by Michael Winterfox, an old Cheyenne trapper and mystic, he is taught the ways of the Dog-Soldier sect, Reydosnin. The training is brutal at times but is meant to prepare him for the vendetta he's sworn against "The Beast" (werewolves).

As Sylvester becomes a man his hatred for werewolves intensifies and his hunt for them takes him from the jungles of Indochina to the frozen wastes of Siberia. Yet, even as he carries his feud into the outlands of the occult he realizes he is waging a war he cannot win.

His hatred becomes a monster in and of itself, numbing his conscience and blurring his conviction, and he becomes aware that he must try to salvage what remains of his soul.


Permuted Press re-worked cover 2010.

The book's tagline is: It takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf.
