Outside of short stories, novels and Romancy transfigurations, there are unfortunately only a few stories worth reading about these fascinating creatures, whose symbology is at least as great as that of the vampires.

The main characters of the novella are the private investigator Randi, who is still suffering from the mysterious and gruesome death of her father, and her platonic friend Willie, who is well hit and I really like it as a character and quickly grew sn’s heart. The chatter of the two has given the story a round face. Willi’s debt collection agency runs with heart and compassion, but you can still feel that there is something dark beneath its surface. And yes, the twists are not out of thin air either. But stylishly installed.
The illustrations in the book were an absolute plus point and luckily they did not look like anime with fake big eyes but actually a good deal of horror.Martin, in fact, adds new facets to the genre and tells his werewolf story in a sophisticated and intelligent way.

A small but fine piece of jewelry and who is as fascinated by lycanthropy as I am a clear reading recommendation!
