Excerpt

reaching but little below the knee, was all the skirt she wore; below were the cross-bound shoes and leggings that a hunter wears. A white fur cap was set low upon the brows, and from its edge strips of fur fell lappet-wise about her shoulders; two of these at her entrance had been drawn forward and crossed about her throat, but now, loosened and thrust back, left unhidden long plaits of fair hair that lay forward on shoulder and breast, down to the ivory-studded girdle where the axe gleamed.

****.

Well, this novel's not really very extense. But I liked it because I have a personnal fascination for werewolfs. In this story, the were-wolf is White Fell, and the other main characters are Chsristian and Sweyn, the twins.
White Fell, with her beauty becomes acceted by the whole family, except Christian who discovered what she really is.

I recommend it. This is a cool story you can read while on the bus or before going to bed. Enjoy!
