How does she do this? Whereas many writers set their tales around the horror of a man or woman ravaged by lycanthropy—a person who ransacks towns in the dead of night—Howalt centers on something much more important: the human side.

This is a must read—an overused statement but nevertheless true for fantasy fans.
