Book 4 in The Wolves of Dumnonia saga – now entitled The Apprentice Prince – is finished (hurrah!)

Knowing nothing of the language or customs of his homeland, Rathulf sets out alone in search of his brother and the city of their birth. It is in Caer Uisc that he finally receives a friendly welcome, so he dons his wolven tunic, thankful to have at last found his true home and people…
