THE BETTER TO HOLD YOU

Author(s): 

Sheckley's novel has a unique premise, yet it takes awhile to get into the actual story. At the halfway point, however, things begin to pick up and the pages fly a lot faster. It's a story filled with passion and mystery.

Abra has always been the good girl who won't make much of a fuss, but when her husband Hunter comes back from a trip studying wolves in Romania, she isn't sure how much more of his odd behavior she can take. Aside from that, her boss, Malachy, and Hunter are going on about humans turning into wolves. As far-fetched as it sounds, Abra is quite curious about their theories and what that means for herself.
