When Geraint is betrayed, Etienne must ally with the local wisewoman and her daughter, themselves bisclavret, to save his lord. But time is running out. If Geraint's enemies have their way, he will soon be trapped in his wolf form. And Etienne has his own secret. The decisions he makes will change his life forever.

Sue Bursztynski is the author of This Book Is Bugged.From Booklist:
Set in a time and land similar to medieval Europe, this novel follows the adventures of Etienne, a lord’s son sent to train with a local knight. When Etienne discovers his kind master’s terrible secret, both of their lives are put in danger. With the help of a mysterious wisewoman and her daughter, Etienne must save his master before time runs out and the village falls to dark forces. While the premise of the story is an interesting take on the werewolf mythos, Bursztynski’s slow-paced tale gets bogged down in detail. Explanations about the rules and religion of the land where Etienne lives are not always smoothly integrated, and Etienne’s first-person voice and mannerisms sometimes have a forced, unnatural quality that may distance readers. Still, die-hard werewolf fans and readers interested in medieval stories may find this engaging. Grades 7-12. --Candice Mack
