I read this book because it was based on Marie de France's 13th century poem Lai de Bisclavret, and I have to say it was a pretty good retelling. Bradshaw's flaw tends to be an inability to keep the action moving simultaneously with character development, and that was not a concern for me with this story. I guessed the ending from looking at the cover, but I was interested enough in the development of the narrative that I kept reading.

Essentially the story revolves around a man who can transform at will into a werewolf. After much badgering from his new wife, he tells her his secret. Understandably horrified, she turns from him, and much drama and treachery ensue. I won't tell you anymore, but it's a pretty quick and interesting read.

One note: this is set in 11th century Brittany/Normandy (rather than the 13th century of Marie de France's work), which makes for some really interesting historical snippets.
