A CIRCLE OF DEATH. The shapeshifter stalked the moonlit night, thirsting for blood, hungering for the flesh of new victims. Once a man, now a grotesque monster, he left behind him a bloody trail of mangled corpses. Before him lay only more death. A RING OF MADNESS.

It's been over 20 years since I've read this book. Twenty years and I still remember it. At the time when this book was current, I remember being impressed with the different twist on the shifter. If you can get your hands on a copy, it is worth the read. It will make a nice change from the shifter of today who has become more or less romanticized. I guarantee you won't be making any of these beings your book boyfriend (and yes, that's a thing now).

I'd give it a 3.5 as I liked it better than The Hyde Effect (this being a sequel of sorts). The ending leaves the perfect opening for another novel but there doesn't seem to be one. More's the pity.

I found this book in a backstreet bookstore on a trip to the coast. I read this book cover to cover in one go and thought it was awesome. It takes you into a world of lycanthropy with a strange sense of reality. Absolutely fantastic must read!!

Good, solid werewolf fare, even if I found the prose to be a bit stilted.

The sequel to "The Hyde Effect" which was the best werewolf novel I have ever read. This is as bad as that one was good.

Not as good as The Hyde Effect ( which I loved) but still a good read. Interesting ideas are presented about shapeshifters and it goes by fast. Definitely worthwhile.
