About the Author
Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic—an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five—Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt—featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular.

But then I started to read this book on my own without the audio and discovered that the author had created a very elegant Victorian world filled with interesting characters. The main character, Miriam, when confronted with hardship, actually became smart, practical, and brave, but not overly brave for someone who came from such a sheltered background. I would have to say this is the best werewolf novel I have ever read. The last fifty pages were awesome. I loved how the mage pack escapes and the person Miriam became. Anyone who enjoys werewolves and maybe steampunk novels should give this book a whirl. 5 Stars!
I feel that this is Huff's main draw back, as she has gotten more popular her writing has taken on a plague of fantastical scenes which really have no point and do not advance any part of the story or characters. Mostly these scenes are meant to illustrate a characters talent advancement, and in general these scenes always happen towards the end of the book which makes it difficult to point them out without spoiling the story. However other that this small complaint this book is great. I really hope she writes a sequel to this book
I'm new to Tanya Huff's writing, but I have to say she got me enthralled with this story and its characters. I enjoyed the interactions (and playful flirtations) of Mirian and Tomas. It was interesting to see how their society works and differs from the empire. I also enjoyed the multiple character perspectives as to see all the sides of this story and not just the main characters (like the kidnapped mage women, Captain Reiter, the imprisoned alpha, etc.). *Slight spoiler* I only wish there were more details on the Hunt/Ghost pack characters that were saved such as Dusty or the mysterious "Nine". And also the one mention of another mage named Hayla helping Mirian. With all these new details and the meeting of the Captain makes me wonder if another books is in the works (a sequel?). I certainly hope so.
Most werewolf stories are just rehashed story lines and lust in the dust. This story has back story and a cultural nuance to the werewolf culture. I loved it.
