This review is from: Under My Skin (Wildlings Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
It's always a pleasure to receive a new Charles de Lint, and this is no exception. One of his young adult tales, it deals with Josh, an adolescent who lives for his band and 'boarding'. His home life is poor, although he loves his mother, the men in her life often cause him grief. The latest boyfriend, though, gets a shock when he attacks him, for Josh changes into a mountain lion. Josh is one of a new breed of children known as 'wildlings' and as he embarks on this terrifying new life he mst find a way to control his power whilst evading the sinister research corporation who wants to analyse him, the FBI and the Elders who have brought this power into the world. As usual, Charles de Lint spins a great story, bringing the best out of his adolescent characters and not shirking the issues of sex, gang culture, race and politics. I really enjoyed it and have started reading all his other works in order! Recommended!
