"A Great Spin on Werewolf Stories"
When I first read this book, I thought it had too many plot lines and too many characters. However, after page 400, the author tied all the character stories together well. In general, the story was written excellently, with clear conflicts and character development. I enjoyed the explanation of how the wolf disease spread from person to person. I found the main character Liz to be likeable. I also appreciated the commentary on immigration, towards the end of the novel.
My only criticism is that most of the chapters were a bit short. The sections where there were consecutive chapters dealing with a character helped to balance the brevity of some of the narration, but those consecutive chapters didn't come until towards the end. Otherwise, I recommend this read, whether you like werewolf stories or just plain good horror! (Yes, I am reading the next installment.)
