In 1906 much is changing in Russia, and on the huge Lohmatski estate a man-eating bear has attacked at least two men. When Gregori Lohmatski, an ardent hunter visiting London, receives the urgent summons home, he invites his American friend and fellow hunter, John Sherwood, to join him.
Russia is far stranger than Sherwood imagined. When he and Gregori arrive, they find Greg’s father gone, apparently killed by the bear; his brother Maxim missing; his beautiful, revolution-minded sister Natalya barely evading the political police; and the loyal but superstitious peasants in an uproar.
The Lohmatski men, Sherwood learns, have long been pursued by rumors of their ability to change into bears. Sherwood finds himself on the run with Natalya. From the Russian police. From Maxim, who is not quite what he seems. And from the fate that will inevitably follow Sherwood’s wounding at the werebear’s claws.
Saberhagen's command of his chosen material is thoroughly competent.
