The Dire Wolf

Book I – The Rider

Seperated by Duty, Reunited by fate. Conscripted into the Imperial army at a young age, the Rider now lives the solitary life of a mercenary, defending the weak from bandits and thugs, until he is suddenly reunited with Tala, his close childhood friend. He quickly becomes embroiled in her new life, and her new companions: a ragtag resistance movement fighting against the tyranny of the Holy Empire any way they can. Their reunion takes a dark turn however, when the Rider begins to uncover the truth behind this disfunctional group of misfit Renegades, their unscrupulous leader, and his malign methods that could very well rival the brutality and exploitation of the very empire they’re fighting against.
