it was a good book overall just a little hard to read and i like it
A must-read for myth lovers
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.
