Read it all before, 3 May 2014
As an avid fan of Anne Rice, having read almost all of her back catalogue, I cannot give The Wolf Gift my full seal of approval. While the writing is as good as ever, the story is almost totally lifted from The Vampire Chronicles, with echoes of Lestat's character extremely influencing Rueben's own development. Further lending to the almost transparent plagiarism is the supporting characters - wealthy, learned, aloof and elusive. In fact, all the staple points of why I was hooked on the Vampire Chronicles are in evidence here and not as something built on, rather something that has been copied and pasted.
All in all, I feel a little cheated.
