DNF. The first couple of chapters got a hold on me. By about chapter 8, I was struggling to pay attention. By chapter 10, I said "nah, fuck it."

By this point, Albrecht, Evan and Mari talk in the same voice and tone you'd think it was just one character with multiple personalities talking amongst themselves. Insights into the dynamics of Garou society and politics makes for so much more an interesting story than the would-be king's test of character. Yeah, nah, it was boring.

This is a fairly quick and enjoyable read. For myself, yes I'm familiar with several of the characters from the corresponding card game Rage and its tabletop game Werewolf the Apocalypse.

It is definently a good story that gives the flavor and feel of the setting with a story that's not too complex and easy to follow.

It remains a fun read, fast paced with none of the anime style combat that plagued some of the Tribe Novels.

If you know what the old World of Darkness was like, you'll know immediately if this book is up your alley. A classic tale from the central mythos of Werewolf: The Apocalypse - gory, fast-paced and filled to the brim with essential lore and characters.

This book is absolutely phenomenal. The greater world of Werewolf: The Apocalypse lends itself to many great stories, and this is one of them. How the last King of the Werewolves, Jonas Albrecht, came to possess the silver crown, and artifact of vast importance to werewolves as a whole. I always will have a soft spot for the stories created from World of Darkness, and this is certainly one of them.

Please, give it a shot if you like werewolves.

In general I am not the biggest werewolf fan, but t

The tale of Lord Albrecht's journey to attempt to find the Silver Crown, and unite the tribes of the Garou nation.

A lot of action, but with a resonant undertone of motifs: sacrifice for others, leadership by example, and how the hard road is usually the correct road. Doing good in the world is not an end we can arrive at by any old means - we must not use evil methods to try and get to a positive outcome; it's unjustifiable.

If you're into fantasy, werewolves, or both, this is a very fun read. I picked this book up for 50 cents at the library, and I'm wondering why it hasn't picked up at all. Very, very fun take on Werewolf lore, and introduces a lot of the universe this story is set in, making you want to read the rest of the series.

Quick, fast, and fun! I've enjoyed almost all the Rage novels and this is no exception.
