In The Wolf Lords by F.T. McKinstry, the inhabitants of Math are in turmoil and caught between deadly enemies waging war on each other to gain control of Math's Gate, which leads to other dimensions. The invisible warlords, the Fylking, are waiting patiently for their chance of retribution since their near defeat with their newly formed army. Meanwhile, Vaethir, the leader of a brutal gang of sorcerers, and the War Lords are determined to destroy the Gate to thwart the Fylkings' plan, but also hunt down the sorcerer Leofwine who deceived them. When the War Lords destroy the shield between the two worlds, it makes Math open to an onslaught from powerful beings. Leofwine and Othin, the Captain of the King's Rangers, must risk everything to find the one person who can bring peace and order back to the humans on Math. Only she holds the answer, but reaching her may be impossible.
This second novel in The Fylking series exceeded all of my expectations for a fantasy novel. An alluring plot weaves intrigue that tempts you into the world of invisible warriors, magical spells and demons. The characters are so vivid and enchanting, they practically leap from the page. I especially loved the tortured, heartbroken character of Othin, who tries to overcome losing his true love. The author's writing style is beautifully descriptive with so much detail that it draws you completely into the world of the characters. Her ability to build tension and develop character relationships is extraordinary. I could not help compare the storyline to Nordic folklore. This is a gem of a novel.
