Overview

A fresh take on the Arthurian mythos, Dark North takes the reader beyond the round table into the exhilarating and dangerous world of Arthur's Britain and beyond. Sir Lucanthe Black Wolf of the North may lose his soul as he battles Arthur's enemies and attempts win back his lost love.

When King Arthur faces a challenge for his crown from the reinvigorated Roman Empire, he must call his supporters from every corner of the British Isles. One of these, Sir Lucan—the Black Wolf of the North—has more reason than most to join the coming campaign. Lucan’s beautiful wife, Trelawna, hoping to lead a new, better life in Italy, absconded with a young Roman officer.

Lucan, already a fierce warrior but now with tainted blood due to his battle with the Penharrow Worm, thus turns the mission into a bitter personal vendetta. His former squire, Alaric, soon comes to fear for his overlord’s soul, but is more afraid still for the safety of Lady Trelawna, whom he always loved from a distance. Meanwhile, the Roman family Trelawna has fallen in with are the influential Malconi clan, and their matriarchal head is the sorceress Zenobia. She sees it as her motherly duty to stop Lucan with any demonic force she can summon...

With a heady mix of violence, heavy plotting, intrigue and some good old-fashioned Knight-on-a-reckless-mission action, oh and some monsters thrown in too - this is a cracker of a book. The Romans want Britain, and goad King Arthur's court into a war - one that has disastrous consequences: while meanwhile Lucan, Arthur's Black Wolf of the North, is taken by the spirit of vengeance when his Wife elopes with her lover, and drags his followers across Europe to an increasingly uncertain and monster-filled doom. Knightly fervour and noble deeds meet ruthless empire-building at full tilt. What stands out is the detailed and colourful descriptions of battles, both full-on affairs with tens of thousands of men of varying troop types, but also the smaller skirmishes and encounters, and this will only whet your appetite for the other titles in the Knight of Albion series.

It is new. It is something created to keep rp from dying. We recruit more members and nanage starclan and df. However, we DO NOT HAVE ANY SAY in what happens within the clan. The leaders keep their power. There are clan gatherings, medicine cat meetings, and ten minuite OOC meetings every thursday to discuss happenings in the clans, request profecies, and get some more excitement from the df. You must send a representative to these meetings. The representative has to be a warrior, and not leader or deputy.

The thick scent of her, herbal and clean, swirled around her as the wind stroked her pelt. The flower behind her ear ruffled slightly as she sat there, tail twitching uneasily. Ignored. Again. Every time. Fine, so be it.
