Fantasy comes to life as author Michael Prosise unleashes the transfixing figment of his imagination in Origins of the Curious Wolf. Here, he presents an irresistible cast of characters that will take readers on a fantastic journey and adventure—allowing them to follow the story of Mattis, a wolf or, as one might describe his appearance, a werewolf. He, along with many others like him lives and works in the world of humans. A day off, however, dramatically changes everything in his life when a new world unveils right before his eyes and leads him to the truths about his origins.

This book reveals that Mattis isn’t the only of his kind; there are plenty of other wolves around. Not all that different from others like himself, he works for a large corporation in the city and commutes daily from his home in the suburbs. His neighbors know him well and speak highly of him, waving with a friendly, though shy smile when they pass by. He doesn’t know his birth parents; actually he doesn’t remember his youth at all. It wasn’t just those facts though, there was something else. He couldn’t quite put a paw on it, but he never quite felt he fit in that world.

Mattis took a day off work to clean up the house, but the weather was so nice he decided instead to take a walk and enjoy the crisp fall morning. This decision set in motion a chain of events that led him to discover not only an entire world, but his own past and potentially the origins of his race. Readers will follow him as he meets with Brean (a tiger), Lanath (a wolf), Balthaz (another wolf), Cresdar (a tiger), and Rendalston (a horse) who will help him understand and rediscover his true identity and his roots.

Mystically engrossing, absolutely gripping and incredibly entertaining, Origins of the Curious Wolf will rivet readers, especially fantasy-fiction enthusiasts, from beginning to end. It will leave them at the edge of their seats, longing for more of Prosise’s infinite imagination.
