Overview

How it all began

The door burst open to the queen's bed chambers. The startled Queen grabbed her baby and stood close to the bassinet. The guards ran into the room and took positions against the walls to the entrance of the door and General Wolff slowly walked through the door and up to the Queen.
She knew why he was there and held her child close to her chest. General Wolff reached out his hands to the baby with a look of regret. He winked at her as he took the baby from her. She was reluctant to let go but knew General Wolff would do what was needed no matter what the end consequences were. He took the child and slowly turned around and started towards the door. All you could hear was his footsteps when a cry came from the bassinet.
General Wolff stopped and walked back putting the child against his chest. He slowly moved the blanket to see another child with pure blue eyes and a smile that would melt even a harden heart. The General picked up the child with his left arm and cradled the child next to the other one.
He took one more glance at the Queen and walked out of the room only looking back once as he exited the Queens chamber. The door shut and one single shot rang out. The Queen laid dead next to the bassinet.

About the Author

I started writing this back in highschool around 1992 or so. I joined the Air Force and continue to write as time went on. Now I work as an IT Specialists and in my spare time I completed this part of the book and wanted to get it out and see how it does.

At the first view, I had the impression that the story it’s slightly similar to “Games of Thrones.” But, what makes Chris Parrott’s book different than an ordinary fantasy story, it’s the fascinating galaxy context. Due to this, the author managed to convert the classic medieval family drama (subject) in a fresh and, at the same time, a remarkable fantasy science-fictional story! Simultaneously, I enjoyed the manner in which the writer developed the characters (from each family), through an imaginative set of language and twisted plot which made challenging to put the book down once started. As the story has a lot of potentials, besides the story, I would have enjoyed maybe, if the graphics would have been perhaps more visual (with some engaging illustrations) and better structured (for example, to showcase better when there is a new chapter). In any case, I enjoyed reading “Realm of Wolves,” and I would recommend it to the readers interested in the “action & adventure” genre!

This book is an extremely interesting and imaginative read. I particularly loved the style of the book and it made sure to grab me from the very beginning and hold my attention to the very end. It's an extremely fast paced book with full of adventure. The characters were very inventive and they make sure to engage you from the start. First time reading any of this authors work and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a well thought out and interesting story. I found myself looking forward in anticipation to the next scene. The story flowed very well and at the end I wanted more. There are many twists and turns. I did not want to put it down This book can be enjoyed time and time again.I highly recommend it and I cannot wait to read more from this author. Will definitely recommend to all friends and family

Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite Realm of Wolves is the first book in the Child of Prophecy series by Thomas Parrott, a story that, in the tradition of the Athenian tragedy by Sophocles, Oedipus Rex, features a king over whose head hangs a deadly prophecy: his life and kingdom would be ravaged by one of his offspring, unknown to him. For a man of King De'mortuis’ might, such a prophecy would not come to pass. No, he won’t let anyone take away his kingdom. Would killing every child of the age of five and below help him to stop the prophecy? Then there is a queen who is so determined to take control of a planet once coveted by her domineering husband that she’ll stop at nothing. The reader is immediately plunged into a world of great conflict, high stakes, and powerful intrigue, with kingdoms standing up against each other. Realm of Wolves is a compelling story that will have the reader hooked from the very beginning. The story starts with an intriguing prophecy to a powerful king: “A child will come to you one day,” she announced. “This child will be of your bloodline, and he will take everything you have built. He will destroy everything!” From this moment, the reader’s interest is aroused as they want to discover who this king’s child is, what the king would do, and if indeed the prophecy will come to pass. This is a book with compelling and interesting characters, including witches, kings and queens, a shape-shifter, and other kinds of characters. The characters are well-developed and readers can easily relate to them. The setting comes across in the narrative vividly and the entire story is deftly plotted and balanced. Thomas Parrott is a great entertainer, weaving a fantasy that will delight readers through every single page.

Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite Can destiny be avoided by cunning? Can the burly king De’mortuis, King of Camden, a man with the strength of a hundred oxen outwit the words of a witch spoken in prophecy? The Realm of Wolves by Mr Thomas C Parrott is a captivating opening to The Child of Prophecy series, a story that begins with an ominous prophecy announced to the powerful king of Camden, a prophecy that foretells the coming of a child who could destroy everything the king has built, a child of his blood. The king’s reaction is immediate and dramatic, addressing his general with a command that will alter the history of his kingdom and many lives in the years to come in dire ways: “General Wolff, I want all children who are the age of five and younger killed. I want no child alive! Do you understand?” It’s for the reader to follow the genesis of the war that will rip this kingdom apart and create desperate times. Thomas C Parrott creates an exciting world that readers will want to navigate, the kind of world one encounters in epic fantasy tales with powerful kingdoms poised against each other. The setting is captured in excellent images, portraying a culture that is unique and of an era when might was greater than democracy. It is interesting to read about characters like Alexander, King Montrealis, and Princess Elizabeth, characters that are compelling and well-explored. The action is intense and pulsating and readers are absorbed into the world of intrigue and never-ending bickering between monarchs. For a debut, The Realm of Wolves is a great read, well-plotted and accomplished with a style that is original, and in a language that is peculiar to and that captures the spirit of the world in which the story is set.

By William J Brown on May 11, 2015 Format: Paperback A good read for the first book written by this author. I would have liked to have seen this book explore the people in the book more and a bit more in depth just all around. Otherwise this is a good read and I understand there is another book that is being written that expands on the story line which should be interesting
