The main characters are Joshua Kaine and his wife, Jessie and they have a happy perfect marriage. Joshua is a long distance driver and Jessie enjoys accompanying him. One night on one of their runs, Joshua is attacked by what he thinks is a dog. He kills the creature, but falls ill until the full moon, when Joshua turns into a werewolf. Drawn by the need to seek out a cure, he seeks out Ganda, an ancient witch who lives in the swamp. 

Joshua and Jessie find themselves on the run from the clan of the werewolf he killed and they are vowing revenge. They come in droves and droves, and when Joshua sees Jessie killed in battle, he vows to take on the entire clan for taking his love away.
It’s always fantastic when an avid fantasy reader comes across something new in a book. With a well written subject such as Werewolves you can often find a kind of monotony to some books. Rie has injected some really good new ideas into this book. I liked the idea that a werewolf takes on the same scent as its maker. It was also lovely to have a story with a well established married couple as main characters instead of the boy meets girl plot.

  There is a good balance of horror, sex and plot lines to keep the reader interested although, the sex scenes were a little crude for my taste, the plot was enough to keep me interested and finish the book.

Rie’s description is wonderful in the book especially when Joshua is taking in the sensation of being a werewolf for the first time.

  Overall this book was a good read and I would give it 4 out of 5.
