The Wolfhound Century Trilogy

by Peter Higgins

A brilliant exploitation of the power of fantasy: the tender green soul of Russian history set free for uncanny battle with its grey, gunmetal carapace.

astonishing ... exceptional ...
The Guardian
A thrilling masterpiece... brilliant world-building, great writing, and a pace that challenges you to put it down and then slaps you in the face with a constant niggling itch to return.
British Fantasy Society
Every so often there comes along a book that manages to make you go wow, one that stands out as a book that is destined to become a classic... this year Wolfhound Century takes that honour.
SF Book Reviews: Book of the Year
With its mix of thriller, alternative history and fantasy ... it's simply the most exciting, assured and original debut I have read in a long time and in fact ranks high amongst the very best speculative fiction full stop.
Sophie Masson
Richly written, vivid, clever: Soviet Russia as dark alt-reality phantasmagoria.
Adam Roberts
Combines alternate history with myth and legends and blends them together into something altogether refreshing and compelling.
A glorious mash-up of genres and styles...a finely-written and compelling story.
The Wertzone
Two parts detective fiction, one part dark fantasy, one part political thriller, one part dystopian fiction, and one part fairy tale..... it sparkles, at times with searing, polished brilliance.
Nerds of a Feather
Dark chocolate with a softly whipped centre of brain matter.
Ian McDonald
Wonderfully atmospheric and alive...and beautifully written.
My Bookish Ways
Truly superb ... captures Russian metaphysical folklore and harsh Soviet reality. This almost lyrical story seems more than just a fantasy. It touches the somewhat delicate history of Soviet power and its vast expanse.
