This book was alright, but not nearly as good as Rice's previous books. It feels a little bit forced, like she wasn't as into writing it as her vampire novels.
It's definitely missing the zing of the Vampire Chronicles/Lives of the Mayfair Witches, but is still worth reading. Team Jacob will definitely be into it, and the scenery of the California redwoods is enough to rival the brush that so dreamily painted New Orleans years ago.
I loved this book. A very fun read, lots of sex with wolves!!! Really nice educated wolves. Very fun.
Classic and therefore awesome Anne Rice, this lady knows how to write a rich story. My favorite is still the Mayfair trilogy but this was great too. Although I think a near legend like Rice deserves a little better editing, found small grammatical mistakes like his where he should be or visa versa :-)
This book is way too long for the plot. While Rice is excellent painting a picture with her words, it is obvious by the end of the book that the purpose of this novel is as mere introduction of characters of other books to come. As a result, the end of the book concludes with a brief explanation of the events, but leaves open, and is obviously intended to leave open as a tease, what will happen to the main characters in the future.
Some Rice's books are my favourites. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. Never figured out if it was just the writing or the narrator. One of my very disappointing reads
“The Wolf Gift” left too many questions unanswered and to be quite frank, I did not care much for the plot or the characters. I believe that every book of a series (Rice will be releasing a sequel later this year) must be a complete work in itself for it to be worthwhile to the reader. This one simply did not meet that criterion.
I thought it was a very good book. Well written and vibrant. Very eager for the sequel.
I have loved everything Anne Rice has ever written...except this. I could barely get through it.
