Mathion by Jeff Shanley

Here is Jeff Shanley with Mathion which is book one of an epic adventure:


In an ancient time long lost to legend, a race of men known as the Wolven inhabited the land of Ánovén. To the north lay the land of Kânavad, home to a brutal, savage race known as the Kânín. A race we know today as Werewolves…

At the age of seven, the Wolven prince Mathion encountered a dying White Wolf, and received two gifts that would forever change not only his life, but the course of history itself. Centuries later, now with a White Wolf at his side, Mathion gathers together a small band of warriors, consisting of both friends and family. Their mission: help the city of Kihar defend itself against an advancing army of werewolves. Along the way, Mathion learns of a secret that he has carried with him his entire life, and a power that can change the tide of a war that has raged between the Wolven and the Werewolves for over twenty thousand years. Little does Mathion know that his enemy is well aware of this secret. And they will do anything to obtain the final piece of a puzzle that, if completed, could condemn the world to eternal darkness. When someone close to him is captured alive by the enemy, Mathion attempts the impossible: to venture into the enemy's homeland itself, and infiltrate the stronghold of Lord Azgharáth, the oldest and strongest of the werewolves. With this choice, events are set in motion that will hurtle these lands toward a final confrontation, and an epic journey is begun that will change everyone's lives forever.

The MAVONDURI TRILOGY is an epic retelling of the origins of the Werewolf and Atlantis myths, told through the eyes of Mathion, the last King of the Wolven. Inspired by such epics as J. R. R. Tolkien's THE LORD OF THE RINGS and Robert E. Howard's CONAN THE BARBARIAN saga, it is a tale of a forgotten era of our past, where the line between history and mythology is blurred, and where destiny defines its hero.

Praise for MATHION:
"A great tale of discovery, identity, love, loss and duty." --Barnes & Review
"By far the greatest independent ebook I've ever read!" Review
"No werewolf fan should miss this one." --Glenn G. Thater, author of the "HARBINGER OF DOOM" series.

About this Author:

A longtime fan of science fiction, horror and fantasy, I have always dreamed of writing something that would impact people's lives and experiences, both literary and personal. My biggest inspiration for my writing was and is The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien, as well as his entire Middle-earth legendarium.  I don't just limit myself to fantasy novels, though. I've also written a few screenplays and I'm an avid movie buff (to say the least).
