Summary

Loup Garron was born and raised in Santa Olivia, an isolated, disenfranchised town next to a U.S. military base inside a demilitarized buffer zone between Texas and Mexico. A fugitive "Wolf-Man" who had a love affair with a local woman, Loup's father was one of a group of men genetically manipulated and used by the U.S. government as a weapon. The "Wolf-Men" were engineered to have superhuman strength, speed, sensory capability, stamina, and a total lack of fear, and Loup, named for and sharing her father's wolf-like qualities, is marked as an outsider.

Loved it, and I don't like Boxing

Boxing has to be my least favorite sport. I don't even like any of the rocky movies. I was skeptical then when I noticed what a big role boxing played in this book. But it was an amazing listen. The world created in this book is vivid and fascinating and the characters have real depth. Though it isn't a fast paced book I was never bored. I found myself coming up with reasons to drive around in my car so I could listen to more of this book.

Also I thought the reader did an excellent job she added to the experience of hearing the story and did not distract from it with a strange accent or annoying voices.

Jacqueline Carey touches on something different

From what I have read of the author, her characters all are fighting personal demons,even in the Kushiel series which I enjoyed. This is a bit different, but none the less a journey into plots and the strength of will to over come. Not the best work by JC but not half bad. Hoping for another book in this series to explain more and deepen the characters as in the Kushiel series. If you are expecting Kushiel then skip this, if you can open your mind to a different kind of country that many of us believe we are living in you might be surprised and say I can believe that our government has been hiding things for years.
