It’s largely up to Al this time, which makes this a great opportunity to get inside his head a bit more. He has to rescue Rae, which is much harder than it sounds. The witch hunter employs remarkably vicious tactics. We get to see some of Rae and Al’s relationship, but we also get to see how Al is learning to handle his dog pack.
There’s some overly coincidental timing here and there, but on the whole I enjoyed the story. It’s a short one, novella-length, but it makes a nice tale before we get into the next longer book. If you like bloody horror (not the type of horror where people get limbs cut off for no reason) and want a decent bit of worldbuilding and plot as well, this makes a good inclusive read.
This novella provides a great insight into Al's relationship with The Beast and the pack, its characters are well drawn and help to further Al's character, between his caring for Rae and The Runt and his savagery towards The Witchfinder.
It's very well plotted, even down to the reason The Runt got less food and thus was able to help more quickly.
The novella tells the literal story of Al, a shapeshifter, who prefers what he calls "the Beast" to his human form, as he feels safer due to the physical power he has as an animal. His friend Rae is a witch in the local coven, and his father is the Night Marshal who deals with those who break supernatural law in Pitchfork County.
Al finds some dark conjuring while out with his pack. Whoever is doing this left-hand path rituals could threaten people he loves. Al will be tested to the brink of death and beyond while trying to save someone close to him from a magic power-hungry predator. He will be forced to do things contrary to his nature and grow up as a result of these actions.
Wonderful novella both literally and thematically. It addresses the issues of brain over brawn, logic over reaction. Bravo Mr. Witt.
