If you like scary readings you will like this one alot.
I just couldn't get into this book or this author. I'm hoping that someone here can!
Written by Anne Rice's sister. Set in ancient historical times (Julius Caesar), this book pulls you into the tragedy of the times, and the story of a shapeshifter. Great representation of man as man, man as wolf, and the struggle for balance between the two. Selected by the Literary Guild, Doubleday Book Club and the Science Fiction Book Club. I got into this book a lot more than I thought I would, since I don't care for the time period. If you read this, also read The Silver Wolf.
I loved all the books in this series. Guess it's the whole shape-shifting thing that mesmerizes me. This book was an interesting insight into Maniel's early life, how he first became man and how he learned the ways of men. Loved his character and found the entire political scene w/Caesar fascinating. The Dryas character (an Amazon) is particularly neat. Highly recommend this book.
