it was amazing

McCammon's novel about a werewolf who aides the Allied Forces just prior to D-Day still grips me the same way it did back in 1989 when I first read it. This is one of the first books I can remember reading a passage and feeling my stomach turn from a description: a scene where young Mikail Galatinov, later Michael Gallatin, witnesses another bitten victim not survive his first change. It's wonderful to know I wasn't the only one affected by this scene, since one of the three illustrations in this special edition is of the result of that abortion. Adding to the full novel's power is the inclusion of a new novella featuring Gallatin called "The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs." It not only sets up future stories with him, but is a devastating story of love transcending beliefs and the consequences thereof. Since this edition is limited and pricey, I highly recommend at least finding a copy of the main novel if you enjoy your historical thriller peppered with a little dark fantasy.
