The Jaguar and the Wolf

by Leah R Cutter

Originally published by Roc in 2005, now available as an ebook!

Tyrthbrand battles a tremendous storm off the coast of Vineland to bring his ship safely to shore. He refuses to call on Tyr, his god, to save him, despite how the tempest rages against them with cunning. Despite how the rain stings and the land remains hidden.

Not until Tyrthbrand loses another sailor to the winds does he beg Tyr for help.

How can Tyrthbrand become his own man if he must always rely on the gods? Especially in this strange new world, with these even stranger people?
