Anne Rice used to be one of my favorite authors. To be fair, I guess she still is based on her older books. I must have been living under a rock because I didn’t know The Wolf Gift had come out this year. I saw it on the shelf while walking through B&N (doing my weekly book exploration that restores my soul.) That day, I came home and ordered it from Amazon – sorry, B&N, it was cheaper and I got free shipping.
I’d say this is a good book but that just isn’t good enough for Anne Rice. Where is the storyteller that I loved? It’s not a bad story but *shrugs*… Easy to read, I would give this one 3 stars.
I cannot even muster the energy to write a proper review. Liked: slightly different wolf mythology, Reuben’s family. OK: Laura (the love interest), wolf elders. Blah: “the Man Wolf” – seriously? I know some people have had issues with the wolf sex scenes. It’s Anne Rice – what did you expect? She always writes it a little weird in that arena. I had a bigger issue with Reuben being a cheater.
If you enjoy Anne Rice, I would recommend giving this one a shot. You might like it. But, get it from the library.
