I never read vampires or werewolves or shapeshifter. etc. Do not even know what ever made me pick it up. I am now reading it for the second time. Immediately after the first time. Thats how ,not only was it a different rendition ,but it and the gothic home and all the people who lived there were fasinating. Makes it so you wish to be part of it. Going back to get the wolf gift. Wish for more. Am a sr citizen and it encouraged me instead of scaring me. Although kinda do wish it was true and could rid nook readers of these 'children' who write these stupid messages to each other. The ones who pretend they are
some type of animal. They take up space. Dont understand why barnes and noble dosn't do something so we are not subjected to them. Have them go 'purr' to facebook. Only then they would be identified which they dont want. They, themselves, know how stupid they sound.

If you love the Vampire Chronicles you probably won't like these

If you love the Vampire Chronicles you probably won't like these books. Very religious, very preachy, overwritten,(where was the editor)? Just not good enough for Anne Rice fans!

    This 2nd installment is not as fleshed out, nor as engaging, as the first Wolf Chronicles novel. It does, however, offer up some of Rice's most descriptive - and atmospheric - writing in a long time. Her descriptions of winter festivals and rituals, and her sections about ancient, pre-Christian winter celebrations, stand out amidst writing that is, at other times,.disappointing. the novel feels at times as if it was rushed to publication in time for the holiday book selling season. As a fun, sometimes ethereal, holiday read, however, it succeeds, even if it doesn't excel.

    Must Read for series continuity!

    Not as fast paced as her first "wolf" book. Introduces many characters and provides background for future books in series. Slow in many places and maybe a bit too fantastic. Time will tell as she develops the series. Reminds me of Lestat in many ways.

    I was disappointed in this second book as compared to the first one. The main character was a bore and not the exciting wolf hunter I was expecting after the first book.

    Knock it off

    To all of you pre teen morons...those of us that can read( i would assume you can't) would like to use this site to review books. So, knock it off and let the adults talk. That being said, I am very dissapointed in this entry of the Wolf Series. I enjoyed the first one, the characters were well developtd and i wanted to read more. Unforunate that this book did not deliver. The plot was lame and the writing was awful. Anne Rice has gotten way to religious in her writing. This book will be my last...i loved the vampires and the witches series....so sad that Ms. Rice has let down her long time fans

    A good read

    The story picks up where the Wolf Gift leaves off. Although, the story moves along at a good pace, some of it is predictable. And some characters are a little confusing. But overall an enjoyable book.
