Susan Krinard has a beautiful writing style. Her books are meaty and always contain complicated characters who really draw you in. Touch of the Wolf, the beginning of her new historical werewolf trilogy, is no exception. For me, this book weighed in a little too heavily on the angst side but still comes recommended to those of you who prefer a dark, brooding and outwardly cold hero (until the heroine breaks down his barriers, of course). It's rich with description and is a book that you can easily lose yourself in.
