Stiefvater leaves the faeries of Lament and Ballad for a lyrical tale of alienated werewolves and first love . . . her take on werewolves is interesting and original while her characters are refreshingly willing to use their brains to deal with the challenges they face.

But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back.
