Not bad at all for a spin-off book. The story takes place during season four of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and sees werewolf Oz leave Sunnydale to find a way to control the wolf inside him. Oz was always one of my favourite characters in the series and, as we never got to know much about him, it was nice to read a book that's all about him. Golden does a good job describing the different locations, and his depiction of Oz rings true. A good, quick read.
This is one of the best Buffy novels out there. The story of Oz' journey after he left in Season 4 is better than I expected. There are some great new supporting characters, and a surprising old face. It's great insight into how Oz learned to control his Werewolf powers.
I enjoyed this, book, even reading it now years after the series ended. It was bittersweet, though, seeing what Oz finds when he returns to Sunnydale after all he goes through in the book. It was an incredibly quick read, but kept me busy on a rainy boring Sunday.
