This book was an interesting and unique read for me. I’m not much into werewolves, of any type, however, this isn’t really a werewolf story, at least not in the sense I’m used to. They are not the only characters either. There is a rack of different fantasy through the pages of this book. It’s deep, thought provoking, dark, and even a bit gory. The writing is phenomenal, and the tale (overall) is very simple, but it’s not a fast read, at least it wasn’t for me.
I finished this book a month ago, but have been taking some time to try to think of how I’m going to rate it. At first, I was going to give it three stars because while it is a good book, it’s just not my cup of tea. There is a lot going on this book, a lot of social topics, a lot of strange fiction, and a lot of everything else.
Now, a month later, I realize that I have to give this book four stars. I think of it randomly – certain scenes, certain emotion, and certain characters have left a residual presence behind. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a heavy, vivid, intense fantasy. Someone who is looking for something different.
