About the Book

The story of a man's quest for revenge on an unnatural beast come out of the wild.

In the remote lands of the Far Finger, danger is a fact of life. Hantle is a logger in a small village, raising two boys with his wife. After his sons go missing, Hantle discovers a wolf has killed them. Hantle wants to exact revenge, but when the beast returns, it outsmarts him and swells in size with each person it devours. Tales of similar creatures destroying entire civilizations raise the question of whether it can be killed.

Hantle must lead the effort to save his village, chase the creature across the lands, and convince distant settlements the danger is more than a myth. How large will the wolf grow? Can Hantle raise a force to slay the creature? Or will every person, place, and thing that he knows be lost?
