Certainly the newspaper people were right about the great increase in ‘werewolf’ violence, though the writers did not yet know enough to distinguish between the true black dogs and the mere campiadors, the little moon-bound shifters. What ordinary people thought they knew about ‘werewolves’ was still mostly wrong, even now, when the vampire magic that had fogged human perception for so long had thinned almost to nothing. The vampires had not been gone long enough, yet, for people to figure out the real shape of the world.We’re in the aftermath of a huge battle that wiped out all the vampires, and now the black dogs can’t hide from humans any longer?

"Out there in the cold, mountains rose against the sky, white and gray and black: snow and naked trees and granite and the sky above all... The sky itself was different here, crystalline and transparent, seeming farther away than any Mexican sky. The sun seemed smaller here, too, than the one that burned across the dry mountains of Nuevo Leon: this sun poured out not heat, but a cold brilliant luminiscence that the endless snow reflected back into the sky, until the whole world seemed made of light."
