strong heroines, thrilling action, and rich historical detail - Jaws of the Wolf (The Visigoth Chronicles, #1) by Charlotte Jardine

"The themes are universal ‒ love and loyalty in the face of war ‒ but Jardine also addresses the complex issue of slavery during this tumultuous time, and cleverly connects the story threads using Gelvira’s skill for metallurgy.[...] Jaws of the Wolf is a great read [...]" Lee, Goodreads

He’s her father’s slave. She’s promised to another. But war changes everything.

Tervingi Territory, 376 AD. Gelvira dreams of becoming a powerful jeweler. But the arrogant son of a tribal elder wants her for a wife instead. After a Hun raid sends her people into exile, her chance to master the ancient secrets of her craft are stripped away…

Adafuns yearns to become a great warrior and win Gelvira’s affection. But as a slave in her father’s service, he has little chance of either. Captured and carried off by the Huns, Adafuns’ dream of being a warrior could come true… at the cost of losing Gelvira forever.

With her people starving, marrying the tribal elder’s spoiled son may be Gelvira’s only hope to save her family. Will Adafuns reunite with the exiles in time to free Gelvira from her loathsome vows?

Jaws of the Wolf is the exciting first novel in the epic Visigoth Chronicles series of YA adventures. If you like strong heroines, thrilling action, and rich historical detail, you’ll love Charlotte Jardine’s page-turning saga.
