The House of the Wolf is a romance set in the harrowing turmoil of 16th Century France.
Heavy-handed and powerful, this classic is a great work of historical fiction. Not a late 19th century tale of werewolves as I had hoped, but rather a competent and fairly entertaining demi-Dumas tale of the religious wars in France. Dec 29, Mark Carver rated it liked it.
