Publisher's Summary

It has been generations since the Northlands have seen a hero worthy of the title. Many have made the claim, but few have lived to defend it. Timid, weak, and bullied, Wulfric is as unlikely a candidate as there could be.
A chance encounter with an ancient and mysterious object awakens a latent gift, and Wulfric's life changes course. Against a backdrop of war, tragedy, and an enemy whose hatred for him knows no bounds, Wulfric will be forged from a young boy into the Wolf of the North. This is his tale.

Hungry Like the Wolf

Our hero Wulfric treads a path familiar to anyone who has read much of this genre. He follows a tough course through his "coming of age" which is populated by rivals, enemies and naturally a love interest too.  The building of his world is not hugely detailed but interesting nonetheless including some of the customs of Wulfric's village. Magic is there but handled with a light touch.  It's all told in a direct and straightforward approach making this easy listening fantasy.  The narration by Simon Vance is very good with a wide variety of voices though some of them sounded a bit weak and wheedling to me.

Even if it isn't going to set the genre alight this book made for a pleasant read.  It ends this first part of the story with a good setup and it did actually develop the politics of the village and those it interacts with in an interesting way.  If what I've written sounds in any way dismissive it's not meant to be.  This was an enjoyable audiobook and I'll likely follow the series as more is released.  It's just not one I would place alongside a Sanderson or Abercrombie though to be fair there aren't many that I would!
