The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice
Anne Rice is back, thank God! I wasn't too thrilled with her Christian works, but I did read them. In this book, she takes on the werewolf myth. She manages it to turn the werewolf myth into something new. In her version, the wolves are driven to destroy evildoers only. They seem driven to this. The book is all about spirituality, the purpose of life, what we are here for. I liked that the wolves were basically good and there wasn't a lot of moaning and groaning about being evil.
A good read. I liked it, but didn't love it. It was lush, beautifully written, had a very interesting myth story, and was full of details. I will definitely read future books in this series.
