Rated of 5
I am sorry to say that this book, albeit one that has been long awaited with anticipation in the DT series, turned out to be a very disappointing read.
The main problem is the way the story seemed to drag on and on interminably without anything very interesting to sustain the reader's attention along the way.
The plot can be summed up as such - the recounting of the dilemma of the Calla in the begining, too much emphasis on the life of Callahan in the middle, some other subplots in New York which does not add to the interest stakes since everything turned out to be as expected, and the demise of the wolves at the end in probably less than 10 pages!
The vivid and cinematic plot twists and turns that accompany the earlier DT books are sadly missing. At the end, well..., one is left with the feeling that more could have been done to expand on the wolves exploits and how our heros could have dealt with them.
