Series: Gerin the Fox
(From the publisher):
All Gerin the Fox ever wanted to do was go down to the City of Elabon and study. Life made other plans. When the barbarous Trokmoi killed his father and older brother, he became Baron of Fox Keep, warring against not only the Trokmoi and their fearsome evil wizard but also against the Empire of Elabon, which was happier collecting tribute than giving anything back for it - such as soldiers or chariots.
Then all four moons went full at once, and Gerin's life got really complicated.
And after that, there were such small details as his son getting kidnapped, earthquakes, bad omens, a threatened war with his neighbours, and an even more threatening eruption of monsters from deep underground. Gerin kept trying to hang on to such civilization as was left in his own little corner of the world. Everything would have been a lot simpler if most of his neighbours - and an irate god or two - hadn't wanted to do him in.
Wisdom of the Fox was previously published as Werenight and Prince of the North, and has been revised for this edition.
