Alice Borchardt brings 8th-century Rome vividly to life. The light in the square became intense. Smells an overwhelming experience: wet stone, damp air, musty clothing, perspirations shading from ancient sticky filth to fresh acrid adrenal alarm. Borchardt is Anne Rice's sister, but she writes a very different sort of tale. Ghosts, the dead, and supernatural forces are here, but so is laugh-out-loud humor and a happy ending.

The story is about a girl who turns into a wolf a night. Her mother had died and she was living with a greedy, cruel uncle and his drunken son. They live in 6th century Rome, a crumbling city. It turns out that she is a distant relative of Charlemagne. He orders her to marry a nobleman who lives in a fortress guarding a mountain pass.

She has many Trials and tribulations. It is exciting to see her overcome them. She also has powers to speak to ghosts. She uses this power to save a friend who is dying. The characters are well drawn.

The only complaint I have is that the author writes a long exposition describing the wolf or girt traveling from one place to another. Not just what she sees but how it smells and the light. She is a beautiful writer, but after third multiple page description, I really wanted her to get on with the story. Also, would occasionally interrupt dialog with a multi paragraph description of a past memory or how she feels. An example is when she goes through this perilous journey to get to a garden where she will meet the being who will heal her friend, she literally names every flower in the garden and how it smells. And there are a lot of flowers. I would think since her friend is dying she would get to it.

Still it is beautifully written and a good story

I love to read. I am a huge fan of supernatural fiction. I have read all of Anne Rice's novels, I have read many werewolf and vampire novels. Based on the majority of good reviews I thought I would enjoy this book. Instead I found myself loathing to open the book. I gave up many times and it took me 20 times longer than I normally take to read a book.
I could care less about the main character or any other character. The story jumps all over is confusing and doesn't make any sense. The book is mainly a vehicle to write about violence and sex and isn't even very good at that. Romance what romance? Borchardt tries to cover up the bad plot, the meandering story line, and ridiculous characters with the subtext of history. The problem is the book is so out there that the history doesn't even seem realistic. These characters and their actions do not seem like ones you would expect in ancient rome.
Nothing was remotely satisfying about this book except for when I finished it.
If you are remotely hesitant to pick up this book then DON'T. It is horrible. You are not missing anything if you don't read it. If you like werewolves try Kelley Armstrong, or Laurell K Hamilton.

A well written paranormal romance with political storylines and a bit of creepyness but I like the characters and story. It is one I re-read from time to time.

Reading the book you can really tell that Alice is Anne Rice’s sister. Their writing style is similarly lush. The writing creates a very vivid picture as you read the book, but the one thing I found lacking is that there is no real discussion of the exact time frame of the book. If you aren’t a student of history it is hard to tell when in history it takes place. At first it seems like it takes place in ancient Rome during the eras of the Caesars, but later into the book you meet another character who turns that on it’s head and you realize it is taking place sometime after the fall of the Roman Empire. That leaves you very confused, or at least it did me, because suddenly my image of the city and the way everyone was dressed was completely different.

Still, the characters were well flushed out, save perhaps the uncle and cousin. The main characters were all well written and their motives for all their actions clear and in character. They were relatable and likable and the story made you want to know more about them, especially the male lead. I did feel there were times when the plot was a bit slow. I kept expecting for the two leads to meet sooner in the book, even though I knew they didn’t since I’d read it before. That was a bit of a frustration because it almost made it seem like you were reading two different books at once. Because the two leads meet so close to the end, the book doesn’t feel like the end is the end. It feels more like you have just finished the first part of the book prior to its climax. Since it has two sequels, I suppose that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Despite the few irritants, I would recommend reading it anyway. The author has some really poignant quotes that make you think, and it really is a good read.
