It¿s quite a feat to find a decent werewolf book out there. Even more so is finding one that isn¿t filled to the brim with content not fit for those who don¿t enjoy passionate romance and all in which that entails. Thankfully, The Wolving Time provides an alternative to the bloody, steamy messes that often fill out the section of fantasy that happen to be of the lupine variety. This particular novel is set in medieval France when burnings were the popular way to root out what was deemed to be ¿evil.¿ Laszlo is a simple son of a shepherd, content to wile away his days tending to his flock. However, he awaits the day when he can join his parents

I loved this book with all my heart. I have read 400 page books that weren't as interesting as this book was. I couldn't put it down. I am a wolf lover and in so I have done a lot of research on them and this book with its knowlegde of them stoll my heart away with its amazing story. I recomend this book to anyone, even if they're not a wolf lover. When I reached the end of the book, I didn't want it to end. Many, many kudos to Patrick Jennings the writer of this book. It was marvelous.

I loved this book and read it in one day. Having studied the dryer, more statistical side of werewolf history in ancient Europe, it was fun to see it transformed into a story with characters you can identify with. It looks like Jennings did a good job of studying the harsh and gritty life of the peasants and shepherds, because reading the book you really do feel transported into another time. Overall, a very exciting book which should be fun for readers of all ages and a unique and creative presentation of shapeshifting.

This was a really good book, but what I am always wondering is: if the people the priest tortured really were witches, how come the priest didn't realize that they would just escape like Laszlo's family did?

excellent writing!!!! I recommend this for older grades though. There is some sexual content.
