When Reuben, otherwise known as Sunshine Boy, was sent to write a piece about the uncertain future of the giant house on the cliff, he wasn't expecting to warm so instantly to elegant heiress Marchent Nideck. Nor was he expecting to get caught up in a violent attack which will leave him changed in ways he could never have imagined ...Anne Rice's "Vampire Chronicles" defined a genre, but now she has another age-old story in her sights: the terrifying werewolf legend. The classic monster of horror fiction is here reimagined and reinvented, with all Rice's supernatural sympathy and inventiveness, as a romantic being, a potentially tragic figure bestowed with the gift of transformation and transcendence. "The Wolf Gift" is a glorious celebration - of storytelling, of possibility, of truths revealed in the half-light. And in "The Wolf Gift's" Reuben, we have a brand new hero for a brand new Anne Rice world.
