Official Summary: “From the South three sisters fair ran athwart the gloom.
Dressed of fur and fierce of tooth… the maidens of the moon.
Jimmy Finn is having a real bad day. He woke up drunk and on the wrong end of a nightstick. He lost his job, and had to see his shrink. Now the cops are after him, he’s falling apart, and his only friend is a volatile drug lord. How could it get any worse?
As smoke envelopes the city, he finds himself on the run, and out of time. He’s either losing his mind, or becoming a monster. Or maybe it’s both. Jimmy Finn has one last hope. A long-buried family secret, lost above a mysterious town in the mountains, full of bizarre shadows and a strange girl that haunts his memories.” – Goodreads
Review: I haven’t read a whole lot of werewolf based books, so I can’t really say how different it was from the norm in the genre. With that being said, I really enjoyed it. It wasn’t your standard story, the main character was really broken and even after finding out what he is, he is still broken. But he isn’t alone anymore, he has a family.
I liked how unapologetic the Author was in his writing, he wasn’t afraid to touch hard subjects. In some places, he was pretty brutally honest about it. Which just added that extra tone and layer to the story, making it feel all the more real. Depression wasn’t shied upon, it was told with nothing but the truth to it.
