Compelling, deeply immersive, and deliciously readable…
Sinister secrets and otherworldly intrigue abound in Marchetti’s page-turning supernatural thriller. Two-centuries-old werewolf Rune has spent his life trying to give meaning to his curse while atoning for the damage it has caused. When a destitute family of war refugees arrive at his door seeking shelter from a vicious snow storm, Rune lets them in despite his hesitation, unaware his decision will change not only his own life but also the family’s. Marchetti excels when it comes to weaving legends and folklore into the fabric of his story, making it feel real, and his characters are both authentic and believably vulnerable. He is equally adept at knitting the supernatural into the setting aspect of the story, letting spooky suggestions linger in readers’ minds. For all its fantastical elements, the story is a poignant exploration of loneliness, pain, trauma, regret, redemption, and the power of human connection. Dark, ethereal, and suffused with supernatural intrigue; a read-in-a-single-sitting kind of book.
