Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

It’s the winter of 1450 and Paris is in a panic. A pack of ravenous wolves is loose in the city, feasting on human flesh. Lorenzo Boccaccio is summoned by a Dominican inquisitor who claims that Lorenzo's business agent is tied to the sorcery behind the wolf attacks. He demands that Lorenzo and his brother Marco help him root out the evil.

Rivals in business and love, the brothers make for a reluctant partnership. Even so, they are confident the wolves are a natural phenomenon, not men or demons traveling in wolf form.

But events soon prove that the monks and peasants are right. These are no ordinary wolves. And if they are not defeated, the city’s filthy alleys will be awash in blood.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best of Michael Wallace 25 septembre 2013
Par LINDA A. ROOT - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Wallace seems to be able to write superb fiction in whatever genre he chooses. Iam not into demons, vampires and werewolves but my husband and I were looking for something different from the usual serial killer or middle eastern terrorist plots. Recently we had read and enjoyed Michelle Gent's Deadlier than the Male, a superior time slip werewolf story,and we like Michael Wallace, although I am taking a break from the Righteous series. Red Rooster is one of my favorites and I almost downloaded one of the others from that group, but I was looking for something less mainstream. At the special price, Wolves of Paris was almost risk free. And it is definitely a page-turner. I hate that over-used cliche but this is the epitome. It is fast-paced, well edited and without any lull in the action. Wallace's action scenes are always good but the ones in Wolves of Paris are incredible. I can almost smell the wolves! The characters are well drawn,the battle lines are laid out well,and the personal interaction between the principals rings true to human nature, which is a trait of Wallace's work. The books has something for everyone from the historical fiction buff who will like the 15th century setting to the romantic who enjoys strong willed females fighting alongside the men. The protagonist is likeable --not too much an iron man to put us off, yet good enough to stay in the fight and win it.I love this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fresh take on an old story 22 septembre 2013
Par Mary L. Doyle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Stories about vampires and werewolves have been around for centuries but Michael Wallace manages to bring a fresh take to the old tale. The story seems far afield from his other work but that doesn't hamper Wallace's ability to take us back centuries to weave a tale of sorcery and deceit.

The year is 1450 and the location is France. Two Italian brothers from a wealthy merchant family in Florence, travel to Paris to find a man of their employ who has disappeared. They find a city terrorized, not only by supernatural creatures, but also by Dominican priests mired in the work of the Inquisition. One brother, Lorenzo, has already been "put to the question," and resents his brother, Marco, for accusing him of heresy and turning him into the priests who tortured him. The brothers also resent each other because they are both in love with the same woman; the beautiful and now widowed, Lady Lucrezia d'Lisle.

Werewolves, or Loup-garou, terrorize the countryside. Where did they come from? Why do they seem to follow Lucrezia wherever she goes? And more importantly, how do the brothers protect the woman they love and get rid of the demonic creatures?

Sure, it's all a bit familiar, but the characters are brought vividly to life, the settings are dark and suspenseful and you care about these people, especially the brothers who struggle to come to terms with how they feel about each other and how to settle their rivalry over the woman.

Wallace is just good at taking us along. It's very different from what we've seen from him in the past. He says he enjoyed writing this book and it shows.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The book, The Wolves of Paris, grabs you and doesn't let go... 22 septembre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
A voracious reader, and one who has enjoyed other Michael Wallace books, I was excited to read his The Wolves of Paris. I didn't particularly like the beginning but I soon found myself becoming more and more absorbed and staying up way too late, hungering to finish at least the next chapter...and then the next... To me, wanting to know what happens next and not falling asleep while reading late at night is one of the hallmarks of a good book. I did manage to tear myself away, three hours after I should have gone to sleep, but even then had to force my mind to stop puzzling over the story. The next day, I kept thinking about it during lulls in my work day and couldn't wait to devour the remaining pages. I wasn't disappointed.

The depth and details used in describing this dark period of history were well written and fascinating. I now have the urge to research myself to see what was true and what was imagination. The tale seamlessly blended fact and fiction into an intriguing and realistic tale, revealing glimpses of life shortly after the black plague, hints of the horrors of the Inquisition, riveting moments of rivalry and brotherhood, and the fear kand terror of wolves tearing through the country side and stalking city streets, along with surprisingly poignant moments of romance and bravery.

I mentioned that I didn't really like the very beginning of the novel. Yet, thinking back on it, after persevering just a little longer until I couldn't put the book down, I have concluded that the start of the story had merit, too. In a way, it reminded me of pictures by 15th century painter Bruegel, depicting the boisterous and brutal activities of everyday people as they lived and died during the Middle Ages. I didn't really like those paintings either, seen over thirty years ago in museums in Europe, but the images have somehow stayed in my head and Michael Wallace's descriptions in his first few chapters, and periodically through the book, bring back those images of the Middle Ages and enhance his successful and engrossing tale of the Wolves in Paris.

If my review made you curious, look up Breugal and the Middle Ages, and look at a painting or two, but whatever you do, I recommend that you read this book, it'll grab you and won't let you go until the last page is read...and even after you are done reading it, you will find yourself wanting to go back and tear into portions of it again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A different time a different story. Thanks for the trip. 22 septembre 2013

The Wolves of Paris I really like Michael Wallace's style of writing, and I think this is his best one yet. It is evident he put in some time with the research on this one. He keeps going in areas you don't expect, and I always look forward to his new releases. I feel he is close to both Stephen Coonts, and yes even Stephen King in his early days. Keep watching...and reading, this guy is good. Arthur Decker, Bristol, CT

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bad Wolves without 3 Little Pigs 22 septembre 2013
Par Philip Bailey - Publié sur Amazon.com

THE WOLVES OF PARIS

During Europe's darker period, when Inquisitions, heresy, and the witch hunting craze swept through the lands between 1000 CE and 1700 CE creating a hysteria amongst peasants and the noble class alike emerges a story wrapped around an event recorded in historical annals. Paris, though surrounded by walls, was invaded by a pack of wolves driven by hunger and able to find easy prey amongst the populace of the city. From this emerges a tale of the times portraying the event with further focus on the witchery and the fervor of religious power. While embellished with the fictitious necessities for keeping readers riveted to the story, it paints an accurate scene of the terrors and hardships of the time. Through the bloodshed and horror emerges a story of loyalty and love. While focus is on the wolf pack the side excursions into the personalities and the intermingling of sorcery seemingly out of Transylvania provide a captivating read along with insight to historical facts. A novel for reading fans of history, romance, mystery, fiction and the occult.
