The tale of THE WOLF GIFT continues . . . In Anne Rice’s surprising and compelling best-selling novel, the first of her strange and mythic imagining of the world of wolfen powers (“I devoured these pages . . . As solid and engaging as anything she has written since her early vampire chronicle fiction” —Alan Cheuse, The Boston Globe; “A delectable cocktail of old-fashioned lost-race adventure, shape-shifting and suspense” —Elizabeth Hand, The Washington Post), readers were spellbound as Rice imagined a daring new world set against the wild and beckoning California coast. Now in her new novel, as lush and romantic in detail and atmosphere as it is sleek and steely in storytelling, Anne Rice brings us once again to the rugged coastline of Northern California, to the grand mansion at Nideck Point—to further explore the unearthly education of her transformed Man Wolf. The novel opens on a cold, gray landscape. It is the beginning of December. Oak fires are burning in the stately flickering hearths of Nideck Point. It is Yuletide. For Reuben Golding, now infused with the wolf gift and under the loving tutelage of the Morphenkinder, this Christmas promises to be like no other . . . as he soon becomes aware that the Morphenkinder, steeped in their own rituals, are also celebrating the Midwinter Yuletide festival deep within Nideck forest.      From out of the shadows of the exquisite mansion comes a ghost—tormented, imploring, unable to speak yet able to embrace and desire with desperate affection . . . As Reuben finds himself caught up with the passions and yearnings of this spectral presence and the preparations for the Nideck town Christmas reach a fever pitch, astonishing secrets are revealed, secrets that tell of a strange netherworld, of spirits—centuries old—who possess their own fantastical ancient histories and taunt with their dark, magical powers . . .

2.5 Reuben is going to be a father
That's kind of it. The first half of the book is about Reuben being a lover and then finding out that he is also going to be a father when he got his ex-gf pregnant. Gee... This sounds like soap tv. The overuse of "I love you" in the first half kind of make it not so good as a story as t...

2.0 Sin Committed- DNF : ( What Happened to AR ?
I am heartbroken that I can't finish this, I made it to 55% and I am quitting. I have found myself using any excuse not to listen to this audiobook. I have even preferred working extra hours to this. Time has come to cut my losses and accept that this is not working for me. Why ? I really enjoyed th...

3.0 The Wolves of Midwinter: The Wolf Gift Chronicles
Not my favorite Anne Rice book. I continued the series just because I didn't want to stop in the middle. I found this book a bit weird for me. Something about wolves mating with humans kind of gives me a bad taste in my mouth.I will say though I adore Anne Rice as a writer. She has a way of writing ...

1.0 The Wolves of Midwinter
Glen Duncan has Anne Rice beat on the werewolf front. It's basically a sexy Christmas supernatural book, with lots of platitudes, heavenly children and feelings of kinship. None of the real danger that I originally read Anne Rice for. I think she should try something new - something that's not super...
