( Here there be a few comments )
All in all I'm happy with it, in spite of the historical horrors errors. Should I feel pain over it, I will think of the unspeakable things Marvel has done to Nordic mythology.
A group of older and wiser werewolves eventually show up. Together they set everything right and they can all live in some sort of werewolf collective.
In the midst here, Rice has tried for a secondary plot- our 'hero' manages to turn another young man and has to deal with the aftermath of that, responsibility and the lot. There is also the question if the woman can love him as a human as well as wolf. And! Should he turn her as well? Cue the older, sensible, immortal werewolf who really is a gentleman and very understanding to the rescue.
Is my review comprehensible? Barely. The book is not. It's boring, lacking in plot and characterization.
I give the Wolf Gift 5 Don't read! out of 5 possible.
