The second book in the series, ''Wolf's Cross'', is a little more original. Maria, a 16-year-old servant in a Polish fortress, witnesses the arrival of a party of [[TheTeutonicKnights Teutonic knights]], warrior monks, who are battered and beaten. Seeking refuge after a horrible defeat, they surrender their weapons, which, surprisingly enough, are edged in silver. Maria is assigned to care for Josef, who is not expected to survive his wounds. One night when heading home from the fortress, she is attacked by a stable hand and rescued by revenge-seeking wolfbreed [[TroubledButCute Darien,]] who comes out of the woods and displays super strength. When he gets her to remove the silver cross her father and stepmother have insisted she wear her entire life, [[TomatoInTheMirror she discovers that she is a wolfbreed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AlasPoorVillain: Erhard spends most of the first book as one of the most sympathetic members of the Teutonic Knights, conflicted between his own personal moral and his loyalty to his religion. When [[spoiler:Lilly kills him]], you do actually feel sad for him.


Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: Bishop Cecilio in book 1. The man acts consistantly obnoxious, insists on treating the Wolfbreed as spawns of Satan, tries to lead a purge in an already christianized country, and it soon becomes obvious all of this is just an excuse and what he really is trying to do is to turn the country into his own private land. He does get a PetTheDog moment at the end, but for the most part, he remains a very unsympathetic character.


Added DiffLines:

* TechnicalVirgin: A really disturbing case; because of their HealingFactor, female Wolfbreed keep regenerating their hymen even after mating, meaning they always "recover" their virginity. Unfortunately, Brother Seymon, who fantasises virgins, figured that out and takes advantage on it by regularly raping them.

* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Wolfbreed are man-wolf/dire wolf shapeshifters, vulnerable to silver, able to change at will.
** They also retain their human intelligence in all forms and are able to speak while shapeshifted.

They also retain both their human intelligence in all forms and are able the ability to speak while shapeshifted.shapeshifted, and both of their forms share an insanely powerful HealingFactor. Silver doesn't automatically kill them, but it does cancel said HealingFactor, allowing to cause them durable damages when they would otherwise recover from anything except decapitation and heart removal. Finally, they don't seem to transmit their ability through bite, instead reproducing and breeding like any living species.

* BeliefMakesYouStupid: Subverted, many of the more deeply religious characters are shown to be intelligent and well-educated. Not to mention the Church takes a pretty scientific approach to studying the Wolfbreeds at first.

''Wolfbreed'' is an homage to ''ElfenLied.'' However, the author actually gives credit to the original work. Despite it having a considerably happier ending, it's every bit as violent and gory as its counterpart.

* {{Expy}}: Lilly is Lucy and the first book is pretty much ''ElfenLied'' in TheMiddleAges [[RecycledInSpace With WEREWOLVES!]].
