The Wolf's Hour
Robert R. McCammon
The Wolf's Hour is quite an intriguing, if not somewhat unevenly paced thriller. Kind of a spy thriller, yet it's also a werewolf story. Got to love a combination like that! This is the story of Michael Gallatin, master spy for the British, and also a werewolf. Michael has received word of a terrifying secret weapon the Nazi's are planning to use against the allies on D day, and it is up to him to unravel the secret puzzle of Iron Fist and destroy the Nazi plan. What a horrifying plan it is, too! There are some great flashbacks to Michael's past, giving some great insight into the werewolf side of him. The story starts of with a bang, as seems to be the norm for McCammon, hooks you from the start. The only problem I had is that it lagged a bit in the middle. Lots of action at the beginning, lagging in the middle, and ending with lots more action. Not quite my favorite pace for a story, but it was still successful and a great read! If you like Spy Thrillers, Werewolves, and even a touch of romance, then this is the book for you!
