The Wolves of Midwinter | [Anne Rice]

The Wolves of Midwinter

It is the beginning of December and it is cold and grey outside. In the stately flickering hearths of the grand mansion of Nideck Point, oak fires are burning. The Morphenkinder are busy getting ready for the ancient pagan feast of midwinter. Everyone is invited, including some of their own who do not wish them well... Reuben Golding, the newest of the Morphenkinder, is struggling with his new existence as a Man Wolf, struggling to learn to control his desires and bloodthirsty urges.

Publisher's Summary

It is the beginning of December and it is cold and grey outside. In the stately flickering hearths of the grand mansion of Nideck Point, oak fires are burning. The Morphenkinder are busy getting ready for the ancient pagan feast of midwinter. Everyone is invited, including some of their own who do not wish them well...

Reuben Golding, the newest of the Morphenkinder, is struggling with his new existence as a Man Wolf, struggling to learn to control his desires and bloodthirsty urges. His pure, luminous girlfriend Laura seems all set to join him in this new way of life, but Reuben is not at all certain he will love her if she becomes as he is.

Beyond the mansion, the forest echoes with howling winds, which carry with them tales of a strange nether world, and of spirits – centuries old – who possess their own fantastical ancient histories and taunt with their dark, magical powers. As preparations for the feast gather pace, destiny continues to hound Reuben, not least in the form of a strange, tormented ghost who appears at the window, unable to speak. But he is not alone: before the festivities are over, choices must be made – choices which will decide the fate of the Morphenkinder for ever.

    Story
    "I was expecting more from Anne Rice"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Anne Rice is not na author for everyone, and she has better books than this one. It wouldn't be a book that I would recommend to everyone.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I feel like the story in itself was small for such a big book. Comparing with the first, this story doesn't flow so naturally or is so interesting.


    What about Ron McLarty’s performance did you like?

    I like his clean voice, that's easily understandle.


    Was The Wolves of Midwinter worth the listening time?

    I've been a fan of Anne Rice for a long time, so she's always worth listening too. She can't however always please all.

    Story
    "Disappointing Sequel"

    I'm not sure if it's because "The Wolf Gift" was so good that this sequel was so disappointing, or whether it just wasn't up to much itself.

    Either way, not much happens until the last third of the book, where Reuben's brother comes into his own.
