IFWG is very excited to announce the world-wide release date of Paula Boer’s young adult novel, The Bloodwolf War, the first volume in The Equinora Chronicles. The wonderful cover art and design is by IFWG regular, Steve Santiago.
The Bloodwolf War will be released on 15 November 2019.
Equinora, the world where horses live in harmony with people, is in trouble. The six unicorn guardians created by the Goddess have abandoned their roles and vicious bloodwolves rampage across the land, massacring the herds and villagers.
Fleet, a young stallion without a territory, dreams of galloping with other horses and building a herd of his own. But an attack by a bloodwolf leaves him poisoned and alone. Driven by despair and a promise to fulfil his dying dam’s vision, Fleet sets out to discover how to vanquish the bloodwolves. The only help the renegade unicorns provide is to insist Fleet follow a prophecy to confront the villainous Shadow, an equine so powerful that the Goddess imprisoned him to prevent him destroying her realm.
Accompanied by Yuma, a young man desperate to escape his destiny, and Tatuk, a tiny dragon, Fleet seeks Shadow and a cure for the bloodwolf poison. But even as he begins to fear the selfish unicorns have sent him to his death, he discovers a secret that might mean he has a chance to save all horses and people from annihilation.
We are very pleased to announce the acquisition of the YA novel series, The Equinora Chronicles, by Paula Boer. Paula is one of our first authors, having penned the highly successful Brumbies series, and she returns with her love of horse adventures, but now with a very strong speculative fiction streak. This ticks two major boxes of IFWG’s fields of interest, aside from Boer’s great storytelling ability.
In Book 1 of the series, The Bloodwolf War, Fleet, a young stallion, dreams of running with other horses and building his own herd. But when the guardian unicorns of Equinora abandon their goddess-given roles, bloodwolves rampage the land and Fleet is poisoned.
The Bloodwolf War will be released late in the second quarter of 2019.
