Launch – Note from the Author
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my newest novel, The Legendary Wolf. I’m very excited about this novel, since it’s a work that I’ve been slowly piecing together since the summer of 2013. The Legendary Wolf is an action/thriller with a contemporary western flair. I’ve always been attracted to the idea of an older protagonist, one who has lost their purpose and become disillusioned with the world. This concept was the basic foundation for The Legendary Wolf. Along with the main theme of atonement, The Legendary Wolf also possesses major themes of growing old and renewing one’s purpose. . .

The Character of Grayson Wolf
Grayson Wolf was once the world’s greatest assassin. He left a mountain of corpses in his wake, and just the mention of his name struck fear into the hearts of his foes. Grayson was an unstoppable force, and his feats earned him the title of Mors, a title that was a reference to the Roman embodiment of death. . .

2.) What was one of your favorite scenes?
This is a tough question to answer because there are honestly so many! I don’t want to give away too big of a spoiler, but one of my favorite scenes happens toward the end of the second act. This scene is where Grayson shows his change of heart. Throughout the entire novel, he has been more of a passive protagonist, meaning that all the “action” he has gone through has not been because of his own will. In this scene, after going through an experience, Grayson takes matters in his own hands and swears to see out this last mission until the end. It’s a really powerful scene because it is at this point that Grayson chooses to shed his demons and rise back up.
Jessica Belmont – Review
“I wasn’t expecting to absolutely love this novel. It’s brutal, gritty, and action-packed. I was glued to this novel from beginning to end. . . . Ammar Habib’s writing is fantastic. He’s found the sweet-spot between description and action that keeps a reader obsessing from beginning to end. Highly recommended!”

“I would recommend for people who like Jason Bourne/Mission Impossible style movies. Gritty, suspenseful, and full of action/danger, this is a fast-paced read about a unique character. There are also several twists and turns along the way that I enjoyed until the shocking but satisfying end.”
Daughter of Increase – Review
“This was such an excellent action packed novel! I loved it from start to finish. The depths, the emotions, the drama — it gave me Jason Statham feels. The writing was well done. I always felt pulled into a scene be it emotional or fight scene. . . . Totally recommend this if you’re looking for an action packed read!”
I’m All About Books – Excerpt
“The men upstairs made two mistakes. One: they thought they could beat me. Two: they tried to. Don’t make the same mistakes.”
Hearing my words, the three punks glance down at the bodies lyin’ at my feet. My knuckles are bloodied as I tower over the fallen men. These remaining guards are mercenaries, but so were the others. I know why they’re hesitating, and it’s not just because of the beating they saw me deliver. They know who I am. More importantly, they know what I am. And after the firefight upstairs and the mountain of corpses I left behind, they know the stories they’ve heard are true. All of them.

Why I Wrote The Legendary Wolf
The Legendary Wolf is a story that I first conceived back in the summer of 2013. Though it’s gone through quite a few changes since then, the story’s core has remained the same. I’ve always been attracted to the idea of having a character who is an older warrior/soldier. The questions formed the foundation of this novel were: What happens to the warrior after they’ve grown old? What happens to the soldier who has no battle left to fight? . . .

“This is a fast paced thrill ride of ups, downs, twists and turns. . . . Part movie feel, part novel feel, Grayson’s story will leave you begging for more. I am so glad that I gave this 4 star novel a chance and I am excited to read more work from this highly talented author!”
Harlie’s Books – Excerpt
I have a ritual for nights like these, nights where the drinks and pills aren’t enough to put me to sleep.
It’s been hours since my home lost power. The muggy and still air grows warmer with every passing moment. Accompanying the blackness is dead silence, save for the splattering rain and chaos raging outside.
My head hangs low. Sittin’ on a weathered and bare chair in the darkness, I feel it in my right hand: the cold grip of my aged Colt Dragoon. After all these years, the grip has seemed to mold so that it perfectly fits into my hand. This gun is the only friend I have, the only thing that shares even a sliver of my pain.

Themes of The Legendary Wolf
The Legendary Wolf is a tale of one man’s redemption. It follows the story of Grayson Wolf, a man who was once the greatest assassin the world ever knew. However, after going AWOL on his government decades ago, he disappeared and has been living under the radar for years. He is an old man when the novel begins, one who has grown bitter toward the world and is filled with regret. Grayson simply exists day-to-day as he waits for the Grim Reaper to come and take his soul. But that all changes when he suddenly finds himself thrust into a situation where he is forced to protect a young girl from the dark forces pursuing her.

Suddenly hunted by an army of deadly mercenaries, Grayson is left with no choice but to protect the girl. But deep inside, something happens.
