Overview

Book 3 of Wolf's-own

After saving his people, killing the man he once loved, and losing his little sister, Fen Jacin-rei has made his way to Tambalon with his surviving brothers and Kamen Malick. But shortly after arriving, old ghosts resurface, new dangers arise, and Malick tells Fen the gods aren't done with him yet.

Fen now knows he's a catalyst for Fate and a magnet for Fate's players, and he's dangerously close to falling over the edge into insanity. But tracking down the vicious creatures that have been abducting and murdering citizens of Tambalon is just as critical as dealing with past lives and legendary beings.

With a threat all too close and a secret he needs to explain, Malick is at odds with those who should be his allies, and no matter how much he wants to protect Fen, it may be more than he can manage when he's trying to keep them alive.

    Since I consider ¿Wolf¿s Own ¿ Koan¿ and ¿Wolf¿s Own ¿ Incendiar

    Since I consider ‘Wolf’s Own – Koan’ and ‘Wolf’s Own – Incendiary’ to be one book, this review applies to both.

    Again, as always, Carole’s prose is delicious. The woman can turn a phrase and paint a picture with words. And she can also create extremely complex, deep, and tortured characters. This continues the story of Jacin, the tragic and tortured hero, and Malick, the demi-god who loves him, and the family that has formed around both of them. And these two books drag us even deeper into the tortured soul that is Jacin’s. So deep that it is even darker than the first two books, and we spend a lot of time in Jacin’s head. Doubly so because Malick, who provided a droll, if dark, sense of humor in the first two books, is missing for much of the time. And we get glimpses of other, equally complex characters as well as their stories continue, but Jacin’s is the center and heart of these books. Unbelievably, Jacin suffers even more than in the first two books, but at last he finds his center and grabs hold of his own destiny instead of being dragged unwillingly through, or behind, his own life.

    Both books soar and spin when Malick and Jacin are together. Carole manages to generate a lot of passion and heat with these two without being explicit, and I love the humor that does manage to break through the darkness now and again. Another of her many talents. But Carole is at her best when she is inside her characters’ heads. She is, in fact, so good at it that I had to take “comfort reading” breaks to pull myself out of Jacin’s dark drama, but that is just the nature of her skill.

    These are darker than my usual read, but Carole’s writing is always worth the walk on the shadowy side for me.

    And the cover art on both of these is to die for.
