In The Wolf Gift Reuben became a werewolf and discovered a community, and the love of his life. Now he lives in secluded splendour with the ‘Distinguished Gentlemen’, one big, happy wolf pack in the mansion at Nideck point. Life is suitably decadent with hunting in wolf form, sex in both forms, endless philosophical discussions and lavishly detailed descriptions. It’s all great fun. The real conflict doesn’t come until more than two-thirds of the way through when for a few chapters it becomes a genuine thriller with lives at stake. Anne Rice is a wonderful writer, queen of vampire fiction way before it was cool. I’m sure her fans have long awaited this werewolf series and it is rich, detailed and enthralling. Another classic from a master.

If you like Anne Rice you might also like to read books by Robin McKinley, Poppy Z Brite and Tim Powers.

Synopsis

The Wolves of Mid-winter by Anne Rice

It is the beginning of December and it is cold and grey outside. In the stately flickering hearths of the grand mansion of Nideck Point, oak fires are burning. The Morphenkinder are busy getting ready for the ancient pagan feast of midwinter. Everyone is invited, including some of their own who do not wish them well...Reuben Golding, the newest of the Morphenkinder, is struggling with his new existence as a Man Wolf, struggling to learn to control his desires and bloodthirsty urges. His pure, luminous girlfriend Laura seems all set to join him in this new way of life, but Reuben is not at all certain he will love her if she becomes as he is. Beyond the mansion, the forest echoes with howling winds, which carry with them tales of a strange nether world, and of spirits - centuries old - who possess their own fantastical ancient histories and taunt with their dark, magical powers. As preparations for the feast gather pace, destiny continues to hound Reuben, not least in the form of a strange, tormented ghost who appears at the window, unable to speak. But he is not alone: before the festivities are over, choices must be made - choices which will decide the fate of the Morphenkinder for ever.
