Sons of the Wolf has it all in spades. Unfortunately, I didn't really connect with any of the characters enough to make the fantastically insane and relatively dark plot work. I didn't hate it, but I wasn't at all invested in it, making a lot of small things I probably wouldn't notice if I were neck deep in the story stand out and irk me.
I didn't hate it; if someone were in the mood for a gothic story, it might provide a fun afternoon. But it wasn't one of Michaels best.
