Product Description

Star Wolves


A Space Opera


- “Stargate meets Lord of the Rings!”

A century ago a beneficent alien race, the Alfar, uplifted mankind to the stars and unwittingly seeded their doom. Humanity had just begun to ply the dark interstellar seas and were wholly unprepared for the malevolent forces they would awaken.

When Haldor Olsen unearths an ancient alien technology, the Hrymar slavers learn about mankind, a lucrative new source of slaves—the basis of their interstellar economy.

The slavers obliterate mankind’s first extra-solar colony, enslaving or killing all 10,000 colonists—including Haldor’s wife and son.

Haldor seems to be the only one taking this new threat seriously. With a small but well trained crew, he travels hundreds of light-years in a frantic race around the Galaxy to save mankind from total enslavement. In the process, he’s forced to make a deal with the devil to ward off the coming tide of destruction.

ABOUT THE SERIES:



The Tribes of Yggdrasil series begins just over a century in our future, but it’s a time you might not recognize. A century has been shaped by contact with mankind’s mythological past and the intervention of ancient alien races. It’s a time where starships ply the stars, where Alfar build great living-cities on their planets, and where the Dvergar dominate the local stellar-economy. It’s a time where mankind meets a great evil, the Hrymar, a twisted offshoot of the elves, and it’s a time where the old Viking Gods walk among the stars.

* Read the first three chapters of the sequel, Star Fury, included with this book. Available now on Amazon.

A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR

So what is Star Wolves all about? In a nutshell, it starts out with humanity colonizing the stars, but their colonization efforts soon turn deadly as they encounter an evil, interstellar galactic-empire. Their exploration of local space causes the Hrymar to take notice of them as a new source of slaves, turning humanity’s space exploration into an advertisement for alien colonization and invasion. “Hey there! We’re new to space and ripe for the picking!”

This is not the first time this has happened. The same thing happened to the Britons who were left after the Roman Empire departed what is now England. The Britons bumped into the Anglo Saxons and invited them to help beat off the foul Picts to the North. Soon the Anglo Saxons were running the place.

In addition to being passionate about Science Fiction, Space Opera in particular, (Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate etc.), I’m also passionate about Norse Mythology. Star Wolves is my attempt at blending those genres. It’s equal parts Military Science Fiction and Space Opera, with some Norse Mythology DNA. If you enjoyed any of the Star Wars movies and the Thor movies (Thor, Thor: The dark world), then you’ll LOVE The Tribes of Yggdrasil series.

In addition to star spanning galactic empires, human colonization and some fast paced space fleet action, there’s also an overarching thread to do with an ancient evil crusade—I can’t say too much about that! You’ll read more about that as the series progresses.

I don’t try to make my books all things to all people, but you’ve got to have a good love story in any book, right? I mean, that’s human nature. Of course I have one here. No, this isn’t Science Fiction Romance, but there’s a character arc about a man and his family, and his love for them. My goal is to make this series as complete as possible. Life isn’t just about shoot-em up gunfights, or space exploration, or alien invasions, or even a love connection. A good story should resonate with the reader on many levels. I hope I nailed it.

Looking for a book that combines Sci-Fi and Norse mythology...then look no further. An amazing read for anyone who loves the two genres...and enough to make a teenager read this after he asked me what I was reading. Wonderful flow to the story, excellent character development, and twists and turns that I was not expected. Cannot wait to get the next installment in this story!

HASH(0xa2113aa4) out of 5 stars A Good Read Jan. 9 2013
By JW Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Hugh B. Long shows his background in Norse mythology which he weaves all through this first book of a series set in the future where Viking descendents follow the path to the stars their gods have laid out for them. Reminiscent of John Ringo and David Weber, Hugh B. Long keeps the action flowing in this entertaining space opera with good battle scenes and even some European martial arts. I really enjoyed the history and the technology and it's obvious that Mr. Long and I share a lot of the same views on conservation. Well worth the price of admission.

HASH(0xa2113af8) out of 5 stars Definitely worth a read. Feb. 11 2013
By Donavan L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It has been quite a while since I sat down and read a book in two sittings, but Hugh B. Longs "Dawning of the Wolf Age" kept me up most of the night. It is a brisk read that grabs your attention and holds it well, with a fast pace, entertaining story, and a very interesting background. I greatly enjoyed the connection to the Viking culture and history, and even managed to learn a few things along the way. All in all, "Dawning of the Wolf Age" is straight forward space opera adventure that covers a lot of ground and has many of the things that I love about the genre - interesting aliens, kickass space battles, and a real spirit of adventure. I fully expect to lose a couple more nights finishing the series.

HASH(0xa2113f30) out of 5 stars Norse mythology brought to 22nd century space March 9 2015
By wyrtwizard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Star Wolves by Hugh B. Long is a space epic that opens in 2128, a little more than a century after Earth’s first contact with beings from another solar system. Humans have recently established New Midgard, the first colony outside the solar system of our Sun.

The first scene of the book introduces the Hrymar, a confederation of blood-thirsty tribes in the distant Alnitak AB solar system. The Hrymar appear primitive at first, but we soon learn that they possess highly advanced technology and are disturbingly curious about the newly discovered space-going race known as humans.

One of the most creative aspects of this book is that it is based on the premise that the Norse gods of legend are real. They left clues and guidance for modern people as well as for sentient beings from other planets. In the hands of Long, this idea leads to a believable fictional world populated by characters we care about. The main character is Haldor Olsen, who wants nothing more than to settle down on his little farm in New Midgard but willingly answers the call when help is needed. With New Midgard and Earth under attack, humans and their new allies must battle at a scale that once seemed impossible. We learn that the apparently idyllic levels of cooperation seen on Earth before the big battle had cracks that had not previously been noticed.

Star Wolves is a fast-paced and enjoyable tale that science fiction fans will savor. The story will leave you wanting more, and fortunately Book 2 is already available!
HASH(0xa211530c) out of 5 stars Action Packed Sci-Fi Adventure Inspired By the Eddas!!! Jan. 8 2014
By David Evan den Boer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Hugh B. Long's new series, Dawning of the Wolf Age, leads us on a journey set in the future where the Nordic religion is truly alive with action packed adventures! Book One in this series is entitled Tribes of Yggradsil and takes us an Edda inspired journey through space and is a must read for science ficition fans irregardless of religion, race, gender, culture, or creed. Personally I can not wait for the next book in the series to answer my questions of what becomes of the humans who have entered into this Universe created by the native religion of the Northern European people! - David Evan den Boer, DED Enterprises Entertainment

HASH(0xa21153f0) out of 5 stars EPIC! (by Jonathan Young) Feb. 4 2014
By Markus Neumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"In tribes of yggdrasil hugh long does a fantastic job of interpreting norse lore from the modern cosmological view.Whats more is he manages to do it without disenfranchising heathens, there were times where i felt he was a little heavy handed towards christians but after what they did to our ancestors a bit of fiction is hardly a big deal.
at times i found the writing rushed but the plot was always riveting as i was hit by layer and layer of intricacy keeping me tantalized and enthralled until the very end, his characters are beleivable, when they suffer i could feel it,
their humour very relatable and his views of alien civilizations were refreshingly unique. All in all this was a great read worth every dollar and i would reccomend it to anyone, It was a true modern saga and Hugh, the skald.
may it become favored among our folk and told for generations to come nourishing minds for the coming millenia."
