In the Meandering Line Dmitri Kovtun was a man on his last legs. As a wolfen, a werewolf, he had been taken as a slave by the evil vampire Blago. Beaten and whipped into submission Dmitri had suffered for nearly three decades beneath the iron talons of this demon nightwalker. Then an outsider came to his aid.

Just what tragedies lie in the wolfen’s past that would send him down dark pathways to this terrible future? And what part does Fate itself play in the unfolding life of a wolf who would be King?
