The Long Awaited Return of Ann Rice


The Long Awaited Return, March 8, 2012

By Yvonne Mason “Author” (Port St Lucie, Fl.)

This review is from: The Wolf Gift (Hardcover)
I just Finished The Wolf Gift. I have long awaited for Ann Rice to return to those of us who have read all of her Vamp and Witch Series. The Wolf Gift is quite different in its story. It is a more humbling character, one who not only seeks answers but embraces them. I read with interest the different reviews from the different readers of this new book. Sadly, some choose to make nasty comments when it was not necessary.
I have read Ann Rice for years, even when she decided to take a different path. While those books were not my style I understood her need. Now, she has returned to her origianl path on some level. Because I am an author I read on a level most don’t. I read with an open mind and in doing that I find things in a book that many leave behind.

The Wolf Gift is not only entertaining it has life’s lesson in the story. If one looks one will find lesson’s of acceptence, greed, fear, love, and even sadness. When I turned the last page, I wanted to know more. I wanted to know where the characters went next, what happened to them.

No this is not your Lon Chaney, Jr. Wolf Man, this is deeper than that. It is a book with a soul. It is a book with heart, in the same way the Vamp and Witch Series have soul and heart. It is more than entertainment, it is more than just characters on a page it is life and all that goes with it. The changes, that we all face on one level or anthor, the insecurities, the pain, suffering and loss, denial, love and even death.

The Wolf Gift brought a memory to me that I cherish. I lost my sister to Lukemia last July, when The Wolf Gift arrived in the mail, it brought back a memeory for me in a flood of emotion. Every year she and I would watch for the next book to be released by Ann Rice. I was not allowed to buy it. My sister would give it to me for Christmas. She would sign her name in the book and the date – but first before she wrapped it she read it. It became a loving joke that at Christmas that she gave me a book she read first.

Even if I had not enjoyed the book- the memory was worth it all. Thank You Ann for helping to keep that memory alive.
