One of our awesome readers, Paul, is the go to guy for amazing werewolf books, and he recently suggested the book Legacy of Blood by T.S. Church, the third book in the Runescape series. Based on the hugely popular video game, the series follows the werewolf Gar’rth (as well as others) and takes place in an incredible fantasy setting.
About the Runescape series:
Betrayal at Falador
“In the kingdom of Asgarnia, though the Knights of Falador defend the land and protect the people, they face threats that clamor from all sides — and from within. Enemies mass at the borders, and a killer stalks the night, killing innocents and slipping away unseen.
When a young woman appears in the teeth of the storm, her sudden arrival launches a chain of events that endangers the very fabric of magic. And unless the knights can solve the riddle of Kara-Meir, everything they hold close may be lost. Their one hope may lie in the hands, not of a knight, but of an untested squire named Theodore.”
Return to Canifis
“Varrock is the greatest human city in the world, yet it is a city filled with dangerous secrets. People have been disappearing, taken by an inhuman abductor. Its victims are murdered…or worse. For some are spirited away to Morytania, the land where vampires rule. As Kara-Meir and her friends–heroes of the Battle of Falador–gather for the Midsummer Festival, unrest grows against the crown. A conspiracy is unmasked, and the King is forced to send representatives across the holy river to Canifis, the capital of Morytania. For reasons of his own, he selects the now famous heroine Kara, as well as Gar’rth, unique in his knowledge of the land of the dead. They are accompanied by Theodore, Doric the dwarf, the wizard Castimir, and the barbarian priestess Arisha, on a mission that will force Gar’rth to confront his violent heritage, and will reveal secrets that will test their loyalties to the limit.
For the price of failure in Morytania is far worse than death, and if their mission fails then a new King will rule in Varrock. A King who is lord of both the living and the dead.”
Legacy of Blood
“The city of Varrock is at breaking point, people are fleeing from the country into the already-full city and riots are breaking out as the government struggles to keep order.
Meanwhile Gar’rth struggles with his dark destiny, Theodore chases a holy relic, Kara prepares for war. As the friends continue to fight against evil, Zamorak’s power continues to rise, bringing with it the walking dead…”
There you have it guys, the Runescape series. Gar’rth can be found in every book, and from what I have seen, his werewolf story is fantastic.
Oh, and if you, like Paul, ever have book recommendations, shoot me a message!
