    One thought on “Law of the Wolf”

    1. Author S.A. Hunt crushed a fantasy fastball to the moon with this one. Great pacing, great balance, beautiful description and good movement of characters around the universe - a universe with an almost Tolkien color and variety, but without the boredom of lineage and landscape descriptions that bog down many fantasy works.Action is many notches higher than in book one and keeps the pace hammering forward. I did see the Earth-out-of-Place/Time angle coming ahead of time, but not the mechanism. Th [...]

    2. I don’t know if I liked this book or the first book better. Maybe I love them equally. Whereas the first introduces the characters and explores this new world they tumble into, this sequel hits the ground running as the story pushes forward. There’s hardly any recapping to remind you who is who or what was going on prior, so I recommend reading this soon after reading the first book (which I didn’t do but managed to keep up well enough, so it IS possible). The plot here is a pretty basic j [...]

    3. I literally finished the book literally the day after it came out.d I really can't find the words to say how much I enjoyed it. I've read many books where I can sorta see the world the author has created, but with The Law of the Wolf, I was THERE. From the camp where Ross finds Memne ( love her character), to the battle at the waterfront, to Sawyers adventuresI was there. There's just so much richness in how the author describes Destin. The Grievers could easily kick the Bene Gesserit's butt btw [...]

    4. I enjoyed the first book in the series despite a few sections that seemed a little less clean. This book cleans up all those little awkward scenes and provides a thrilling story from cover to cover. S.A. Hunt continues to paint a picture of a world of gunslingers hellbent on protecting their world. With the same brush he delves into another world across the desert that is even more complex and intriguing than I would have guessed from the first book. This book is packed full of great characters [...]

    5. Have you ever finished a book and been glad of it? I have, because some authors are just dull. That is NOT true of S.A. Hunt's stories; this guy really knows how to 'spin an exciting yarn', which is why I quickly grabbed the second book in this series and am eager for the next!

    6. A hell of a page turner, and a great mix of SF and Fantasy. It basically just left me really, really wanting book 3; what else is there to say?

    7. What a book! These truly deserve more readers, I mean, 146 ratings on here? Read these books people! This Hunt guy knows what he's doing. The Outlaw King series, at its heart, is a story about creation. About creators, and the relationship they have with their creations, and therefore the relationship we ALL have with their creations. What is a story before it's a story? Where was Westeros before George thought it up? What was going on in Middle Earth before Tolkein put pen to paper? Nothing? A [...]

    8. Nothing short of awesome. The second installment of 'the outlaw king' definitely lived up to my expectations. First thing to note is where as the first started of slow this book jumped right into the heat of battle. Action, and more action and swords, and escape tunnels and villains who can control dark beasts. The past coming back to bite you in the ass, friends reunited in battle and fields set ablaze. Whoa. Just too much excitement to handle. I liked it because you could feel the urgency of i [...]

    9. Epic FantasticSam Hunt should be famous, reaping the rewards of two bestsellers for The Whirlwind and the Thorn Tree, as well as this book, the second in the Outlaw King Series. These two books can easily match if not exceed best-selling authors in the genre including King, Abercrombie, and others.Destin, the world that Hunt has built for these books is so fascinating and so credible at the same time, it is just a sheer pleasure to read. It is a completely different world than Earth, and yet at [...]

    10. Author Sam Hunt claims he's your usual madman, or so the title of his website would purport. He's really not, however. He's much more than usual. He's diabolical and not someone for the casual reader to take lightly. Ah, but I'm getting a little ahead of myself. This is, after all, a book review, not an author review.Volume 2 of the Outlaw King, titled Law of the Wolf, picks up right where The Whirlwind in the Thorn tree leaves off. The gang is all back, Ross, Sawyer, Noreen, Normand, and they'r [...]

    11. When I finished reading The Law of the Wolf, I felt like Doc Brown from Back to the Future – wild hair, stunned expression, and face darkened everywhere but where goggles had covered. I blinked at my kindle in disbelief at the wild ride I’d just been on.This story picks up where Whirlwind in the Thorn Tree leaves off, and follows Ross, Sawyer, Noreen, and an elaborate cast of characters on their continued mission to stop the enigmatic Silen from destroying reality. The narrative is told from [...]

    12. Books like this are the reason I feel in love with reading in the first place. Holy shit what a ride this book was. Building on the already excellent foundation of the first the characters deepen becoming even more human and striking in their characters and motivations. Similarly the plot line becomes even more complex and intricate, rather than becoming burdensome this actually clarifies and strengthens the story. The whole is becoming clear but it is a masterwork of such scope and reach as to [...]

    13. The first thing you need to know is that this book is it's better than you think it'll be. The second thing you need to know is that it's full of meta-fiction. And it's awesome. Hunt creates such a vivid, beautiful landscape that you cannot HELP but get sucked in. And it's filled with everything you could want. Sci-fi? Fantasy? Gunslingers? Sea monsters? New cultures and races? You'll find it and you'll love it. Ross is an easy narrator to follow and you really cheer for him. There are definite [...]

    14. Excellent!Mr Hunt continues to flesh out the characters and the world of Destin I am enjoying his own skyping concerning Ross and company. If you liked Jordan, P.J. Farmer, and Tolkien, you just might find a new and modern muse in S. A. Hunt.A must-read for anyone who enjoys fantasy / fiction / sci-fi. Hunt's scientific set up is plausible, and works well in the story the suspension of disbelief required to enjoy any fiction isn't strained by impossible pseudo science with all the science fictio [...]

    15. I didn't write a review after initially reading this book because I was so obsessed with starting the next book, Ten Thousand Devils, that I didn't even slow down to write one.I am here to report that this book builds on the momentum from Book One all while going into details about Gunslinger training rituals and general background lore of the series. Thanks to S. A. Hunt's writing, none of this feels slow or dragged out.I really enjoyed Book 1: Whirlwind in the Thorn Tree a lot, but after finis [...]

    16. This is the second book in the Outlaw King Series and it does not disappoint. It picks up right where the first one left off and takes no time getting back into the action. I like that each characters story was explored deeper in this book and you find out a lot of history on them. As with the first one I couldn't put this book down and read through it very quickly. I was bummed about how open it was left though and the third book isn't written yet! Hurry! :)

    17. Fantastic book! So many twists and turns. Clever writing. Clever storytelling. Compelling characters. I'm not especially great at writing reviews, partly because I don't want to spoil any of the details for the next reader. But I highly recommend This series. I can't wait for the next book.

    18. How is S. A. Hunt not a wildely popular author? I can honestly say that I can care less if Martin never finishes his series because of heart-attack-by-cheeseburger now. This series is a thousand times what Song could ever dream of being.Hunt is simply amazing! I would consider doing house chores for him if it means finishing the third book faster. Oh, and please give this man a movie deal!

    19. I just finished re-reading this book, and had to up my previous rating. This series really does deserve 5 stars. No sophomore slump here. Hunt continues to deliver an exciting story, told from the POV of characters that I really care about.

    20. Expands on the first book with going deeper into the rabbit hole. Full of situations, that'll have you on the edge of your seat. The ideas set forth by S.A.Hunt in this series are not new, but used in such a way that it's unpredictable, compelling and just brilliant.

    21. Wow. It took more than a year for me to finish this book--my fault, I was out of practice physically reading (read: audiobooks). It was totally worth it in the end! Hunt does an incredible job of blending genres and I'm eager to dive into vol 3!

    22. Really liked this, but I feel like the plot got too complicated. The mystery is intriguing but is too "secretive" and obscure. Nonetheless, the writing is superb.

    23. Excellent. Even better than the first and right on to the third. HUGE fan of this series. It's a perfect blend of horror, fantasy, and western.
