They've been with us forever - prowling the smoky roadhouse dives that are their watering holes and hunting grounds. Predators, lurking amidst the human herd.
Changing shape at will. Lusting for blood and meat they are gods in the wild. Gods in disguise. And they feed on the spark inside each of us.
Syd was just another lonely working class guy singing the steel-town blues. Then he met Nora. She's sensual, Erotic. Amoral. A creature of the night and she's luring Syd across the line that few can cross - and fewer survive: the line that separates man from beast.
This will be a Crossroad Press production.

This is one of the best werewolf stories I've come across. Gory without being gruesome, and I really feIt for the protagonist. I read it quite a few years ago and found out that another book of these authors came out in audiobook format a few months ago. I emailed one of them to find out if this one would be in audio as well and never got a response. I lucked up on it last week and was super excited to get it.
I loved the rural setting, the protagonists' backstory and how he eventually came out on top. The descriptions of the supporting characters and the great music really set the tone.
If he narrated another type of story - yes. In my opinion, he wasn't a good fit for this book. I can tell that he was trying hard to mask an accent and it threw me off a bit. I think Robert Petkoff would have been a great choice.
Not sure. I think the title is fitting.
Really happy that I could listen to one of my favorite stories. It was written in 1993. That's a long time to wait.
