Editorial Reviews


From Booklist: (Kristine Huntley)
Rice weaves her trademark meditations on the role of supernatural creatures in society into an often thrilling, page-turning  yarn.  HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY:  News that the legendary vampire chronicler has written a novel about werewolves is mobilizing Rice's multitude of library-card-carrying fans.

From Library Journal:
Verdict Fans of Rice's "The Vampire Chronicles" and "The Lives of the Mayfair Witches" series should delight in this new saga delivered in the author's distinctive style. Part creation story, part love story, and all excellent! [See Prepub Alert, 11/9/11.]--Amanda Scott, Cambridge Springs P.L., PA

From Alan Cheuse
The Boston Globe:
The plot in which all this unfolds is magnetic, the characters fascinating, and Rice's style as solid and engaging as anything she has written since her early vampire chronicle fiction. 

From the Author

Writing this book was a pure joy.  It was a return for me to gothic motifs --- the old dark house,  a mysterious death, the promise of family secrets, and the supernatural monster as hero -- that I had used in the Vampire Chronicles, and the Tales of the Mayfair Witches.  And once again,  I felt compelled to create an origin story and a cosmology --- this time for my protagonist, Reuben Golding, who finds himself periodically turning into the werewolf of legend.  Only unlike the doomed werewolves of so many popular films, Reuben retains full awareness during the transformation and a keen enjoyment of his immense wolfen powers.  He never becomes a four footed animal, but remains a deeply conflicted, fierce but compassionate beast-man,  hungry for power, and for answers as to the mystery of what he has become.  Though similar in many ways to my vampires novels,  Reuben's story is almost entirely contemporary.  And for the first time in my writing career I explored the haunted atmosphere of California's cold, mist shrouded redwood forests, and the romance of the windswept northern California coast.  I lived in northern California for over thirty years, and it was a great pleasure to get back to it, to have my hero dining in San Francisco's North Beach, or meeting his lady love in the quaint town of Mill Valley for breakfast, or driving his sports car north on Highway 101 as he pushes deeper into a grim but at times glorious adventure.  ------ I've been asked: will this be a series? I don't know.  I held nothing back in the writing of The Wolf Gift, but the characters are alive in my imagination, as vividly as any I've ever created, and I see the grand house of Nideck Point looming against a leaden sky, beckoning me just as it beckoned my hero, Reuben.
