I think this is sort of a grand slam...

...except Kirkus, of course, because Kirkus hates everybody

Ragnarok has come and gone, and with it, the destruction of the world--except for the failed Valkyrie Muire and her valraven, Kasimir, the winged steed of the Valkyrie.  Out of their survival arises a new world, in which magic and technology combine to create something new yet achingly familiar.  Two thousand years pass, and the world is again dying, with one city remaining, ruled by the Technomancer.  Muire dwells in the last city, awaiting her doom, for she has caught sight of Mingan the Wolf, on the hunt for the first time since the Last Battle.  Bear's (A Companion to Wolves with Sarah Monette) ability to create breathtaking variations on ancient themes and make them new and brilliant is, perhaps, unparalleled in the genre.  Her lyrical style and heroically flawed characters make this a priority purchase for most libraries.  Highly recommended.
