StoryGraph Saturday is a weekly thing where I randomly choose a book from my To Read pile on StoryGraph and show it off to remind me that it’s there and to show it to you in case you find it interesting, too.
Iron Wolf (Vardari #1)
by Siri Pettersen, translated from the Norwegian by Tara Chace
Expected US publication: February 2023
From The StoryGraph:
Juva knows all about blood readers. Praised for their Sight, they are nothing but swindlers, preying on people’s fears for power and profit. Born by blood readers herself, she knows only too well, and she has vowed never to become one of them.
But when her family is threatened by vardari, the eerie lasting ones, who never age, Juva is entangled in a desperate hunt for the blood readers’ legacy: a dark secret that once changed the world, and may do so again.
In order to survive, she has to confront the terrifying childhood memory she fought to forget.
Iron Wolf is a new spellbinding fantasy mystery from Siri Pettersen, built on a Norse foundation, about blood, desire, and addiction. It’s the first book in the trilogy VARDARI, an independent series set in the universe of the award-winning fantasy phenomenon THE RAVEN RINGS
I read Pettersen’s Raven Rings trilogy earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I’m looking forward to giving this new trilogy a try. I’m curious about the translation, as Tara Chace is a different translator than the people who worked on The Raven Rings, so it will be interesting to see how that affects Pettersen’s story.
