No devil is as wicked as what lies in the soul of man.
The Beast has taken just about everything it can from Sylvester Logan James, and for twenty years he has waged a vendetta with silver bullets and a perfect willingness to die. But fighting with monsters has consequences other than death.His feud has made him a villainous hero whose only virtue is the greater evil of his adversary. The struggle has twisted his conscience and tangled his spirit, leaving him embattled by occult machinations and a newfound fear of damnation. Though haunted by cryptic nightmares and insatiable guilt, Sylvester’s own resolve will not let him surrender to an easy death, but goads him into pain he cannot turn and spiritual anguish that will not be ignored. Like a wounded animal orchestrating its own destruction, Sylvester must contend with the ancient werewolf, Peter Stubbe, as well as the cannibal demon the First Nations call Windigo. With the vigor of his pathos drained to the dregs and his existence unsustainable, his only hope is to die with some fractional token of his soul intact. The Cheyenne spirits have named him Heart of Scars.

A sequel should not be the re-telling of the original story, but should re-invent the parts that worked. Heart of Scars is different from Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter in two important ways, mentioned here by way of introduction.
Heart of Scars covers a time period of about one year, whereas Autobiography spanned decades. Because of this the reader will detect, by necessity, a different rhythm from the first.
The second book also has a more somber tone than its predecessor as it explores the spiritual realm and its influence on the main character. This is a decidedly more violent novel as is unavoidable in the development of a character whose sense of hatred is as intense as Sylvester James.
Readers who enjoyed Autobiography should not anticipate a re-tread in this second book, and should be ready for a more solemn, brutal phase in the evolution of a werewolf hunter.
Brian Easton has studied the occult since 1985 and obtained a degree in anthropology to further his research. His first novel When the Autumn Moon is Bright was a finalist in the 2003 Independent Publisher Book Awards, and has received exceptional reviews. He currently resides in Champaign, IL.
