The Wolf's Hour by Robert McCammon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Straight epic WWII historical adventure filled with heroism and sacrifice... or a sexed-up epic werewolf story from childhood through adulthood.
What do YOU prefer?
Fortunately, YOU don't have to make a choice! It's all here!
And guess what? This is all a huge tome with a very long and very adventuresome escapade revolving WWII from resistance fighters, going deep into enemy German territory, Russia, and back to England. It's a pretty wild ride and a ton happens. If you like your stories long and exciting and sexed up and very, very, wolfy, then you really ought to read this.
This is NOT your average UF fantasy and since it was written in the 80's it goes a long way to strive for realism and the exploration of what it means to be a man or a wolf, really rocking the Metallica theme and the lone-wolf idea that saves the world, too. And to make it even more impressive, it's very immersive as a historical drama, too, from '18 Russia to WWII.
Really, this is a force to be reckoned with.
They just don't write them like they used to. :)
