The Wolf of Dalriada


Delighted to have been invited to read excerpts from my debut novel at The Wirral Festival of Firsts in West Kirby Library on 9/7/2018 at 4.30pm.

The Wolf of Dalriada Series (2): Staining the Soul. Due out later in the year, this is about to go through the RNANWS for its final edit. Then I'll be looking for production and distribution.

In Elizabeth's debut novel, The Wolf of Dalriada,

It is 1793 . . .

As Europe watches the French Revolution's bloody progress, uneasy Scottish landowners struggle to secure their wealth and power. And, in Dalriada – the ancient Kingdom of Scotland – fractured truths, torn loyalties and atrocities are rife. Can anyone ride the maelstrom of these dangerous times?
Only, it seems, Malcolm Craig Lowrie – the legendary Wolf of Dalriada.
Now, in remote Argyll, people cry out to the young laird for protection against the evil of the Clearances. And there is the beautiful Frenchwoman – staked as a child on the turn of a card – now living in thrall to her debauched captor, Sir William Robinson, in his secret palace in the Highlands.
Can the Wolf of Dalriada safeguard his people? Can the Wolf help Adelaide de Fontenoy find a life worth living? And can the Wolf defeat enemies who, like the spirit of Argyll’s Corryvreckan Whirlpool, threaten to engulf them all?

A published freelance journalist for 25 years in national, regional and local magazines and newspapers, Elizabeth Gates has at last turned to fiction. The Wolf of Dalriada is an almost first foray into writing historical adventure but more historical novels are in the pipeline. The Wolf of Dalriada is the second in a series entitled The Wolf of Dalriada Stories/i> and Elizabeth is currently writing a sequel set in Revolutionary France, due out in Autumn 2018 and entitled 'Staining the Soul'. She is also planning a third Wolf of Dalriada Story and a prequel exploring mysticism and legend in the Highlands. When not writing, she enjoys reading, travel, family and friends. She misses her labradors a lot.
