The tale of The Wolf Gift continues . . . this Friday read the next chapter in Anne Rice’s wolfen tales—THE WOLVES OF MIDWINTER.
Anne Rice’s new series is a strange and mythic imagining of the world of wolfen powers. It has proven Rice is back with a new frightening hit series. Readers were spellbound as Rice imagined a daring new world set against the wild and beckoning California coast. Her new novel, The Wolves of Midwinter, is as lush and romantic in detail and atmosphere as it is sleek and steely in storytelling. Anne Rice brings us once again to the rugged California coastline, to the grand mansion at Nideck Point—to further explore the unearthly education of her transformed Man Wolf.
The novel opens with oak fires burning in the stately flickering hearths of Nideck Point. It is Yuletide. For Reuben Golding, now infused with the Wolf Gift and under the loving tutelage of the Morphenkinder, this Christmas promises to be like no other . . . as he soon becomes aware that the Morphenkinder, steeped in their own rituals, are also celebrating the Midwinter Yuletide festival deep within the Nideck forest.
From out of the shadows of the exquisite mansion comes a ghost-tormented, imploring, unable to speak yet able to embrace and desire with desperate affection . . . As Reuben finds himself caught up with the passions and yearnings of this spectral presence and as the preparations for the Nideck town Christmas reach a fever pitch, astonishing secrets are revealed, secrets that tell of a strange netherworld, of spirits—centuries old—who possess their own fantastical ancient histories and taunt with their dark magical powers . . . you’ll have to read the book to see where the story goes. It’s out October 15. You’re in for a treat.
