I loved it!

I absolutely adored reading this novel. The fact that I enjoy a good werewolf story is what drew me into the book, but despite the fact that there was little of the actual werewolf in the novel, I surprisingly, still immensely enjoyed it. The book mostly centers around a Luciferian cult, with really only a hint of werewolves to weave together a very entertaining plot. My only disappointment has been the fact that I have been unable to find other books by this author. Be warned, if I haven't made it obvious, this is a dark book, despite its rather kitschy cover.

The convocation continues on...

John R. Holt, Wolf Moon (Bantam Spectra, 1997) John Holt's third (as far as I have been able to discern) novel is sort of a continuation of his second, The Convocation; it's another Children of the Griffin novel, this one set in the small upstate New York town of St. Claire. The town's two most important families, the St. Claires and the Balthazars, have been waging quiet war against one another for generations, and are down to two St. Claires and an unspecified (at the beginning) number of Balthazars, along with each side's various allies. A few characters from The Convocation pop up now and again, but you can't really call Wolf Moon a sequel to The Convocation in any real sense; it's more another novel set with the same parameters, a number of years later, with almost an entirely new cast of characters. One of those new characters is Freya Kellgren, an ally of the Balthazar clan who is an entity all her own who adds another dimension of oddity to the plot. Holt never quite reveals the true nature and powers of Kellgren's character; it's almost as if he's setting us up for a third Children of the Griffin novel (which has not, to date, materialized). Most, if not all, of the pieces are in place. All we can do now is hope the man gets another one out at some point in the future. Wolf Moon has many of the same weaknesses as The Convocation, with the principal one being that the book starts off slow. Once you've been introduced to all the main characters and have the backstory down, though, things pick up. It has all the same strengths, however, and like he Convocation, the strengths make the book well worth reading. Holt draws his characters very well, and once the pace picks up he knows how to spin a tale well enough that you don't really notice the lack of bloodshed for the first three quarters of what purports to be a horror novel; Holt spends his time getting you involved in the lives of the principals, instead, drawing the lines on the map of the battlefield and showing the reader the intricacies of the allegiances. Very good stuff, well worth hunting down. *** ½

a truly dark fantasy

This is excellent horror fantasy novel about a young woman who is a victim of a family curse to turn into a werewolf. She is the only one that can save her friends and the man she loves from cabal of satanists bend on destroying them all! This novel boasts scenes of eroticism and black magic, gruesome violence and a truly wicked final twist.

Realistic contemporary fantasy.

Not so much a book about lycanthropy as Luciferianism, the bonds of friendship, and family history. Ms Klausner's review below gives all you need to know about the plot. As for my opinion, I think what impressed me most is the way the book remained entirely credible all the way through. Too many modern day horror/fantasy stories fall into the trap of an over-the-top, unbelievable climax (if not before). This one doesn't; everything works. And it has a *perfect* ending.
