Anne Rice, The Wolf Gift Chronicles : Book One- “The Wolf Gift”; Book Two- “The Wolves of Midwinter”
“The morph from human to werewolf is typically depicted with growling, snarling and more of an air of pain and violence. Only Anne Rice would attempt to describe lycanthrophy as a viral infection that transforms the body’s muscle into a sort of erectile tissue, and then draw parallels between the transformation and the physiological process of arousal and climactic release. Rice’s wolf experience is a full-blown orgy of all the senses described with her characteristically florid prose.” -Andrea Sefler. Pop Mythology
For werewolf fans- great books to start a new series. Devour them.
