The Two Wolves is an engrossing third entry in A Dying Truth Exposed series by Marcus Abston, a story that features a well-crafted conflict and characters that are lovable. Life is gradually becoming normal for Annabelle who is finding her home in John's heart and enjoying her Cherokee family. She is a young mother now, having given birth to her first son, Joseph. Annabelle's family grows with other children and as she embraces her family more, trouble lurks in the shadows. Kidnapping is not the only thing that threatens Annabelle; Indian agents are after her as well. Faced with enemies from all sides and her family in danger, what will Annabelle do to protect her loved ones?

Marcus Abston has woven a spellbinding historical yarn with characters that are unforgettable, exploring threads of a small community in Tahlequah and offering powerful shades of the Indian culture. The characters are robust and Annabelle will win the reader's attention. Lisa is another character that is skillfully written and her story of dealing with traumatic events is absorbing. The Two Wolves is infused with realism and humanity and while readers will delight at the deft creation of family dynamics, they will enjoy the dazzling portrait of the community, and the challenges of a young mother building a family against all odds. Intrigue is aplenty in this narrative and the tension grows as readers turn from page to the next exciting page. The Two Wolves is an unpredictable tale with sophisticated characters, a world-building that is cleverly executed, and conflict that drives the story to surprising places.
