AN UNLIKELY PAIR. A WORLD FULL OF ENEMIES.

THE WOLF & THE CROW: QUINTET features four short stories and one novella of Farys, the wandering, vengeful Wolf Knight, and Sibyl, the renegade witch-seer of Mandria. Following their first encounter (“The Wolf & The Crow”), to both of their origins (“Upon a Field of Ruin” and “The Whispering Trees”), the tales find them traveling through the mystical land of Irth to tangle with a demonic mercenary prince and his minions (“A Sordid Tale”), and across savage wastes against relentless Unhuman adversaries (“The Reckoner”).

The Twilight Isle continues the Southland adventures of Fiss’Q, as she seeks to bring lasting justice and freedom to the corrupt and decadent cities of Old Soria, one by one.
