Description

'[W]hen I found Rice's work I absolutely loved how she took that genre and (...) made [it] feel so contemporary and relevant' Sarah Pinborough, bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes'[Rice wrote] in the great tradition of the gothic' Ramsey Campbell, bestselling author of The Hungry MoonAnne Rice is back, with more werewolves, gothic mansions and epic battles between good and evilIt 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.
