Demian's Thoughts:

This is a fairly weak book. The writing isn't too good (which is disappointing, since Edward Packard is capable of doing better), there are several excessively long stretches which don't include choices, and some of the endings are extremely abrupt and unsatisfying. There is a certain b-movie charm to the book, but it doesn't help much.

Jordashebasics's Thoughts:

I was a little disappointed when I read the first few paths, and thought that Packard was using inconsistent endings. Luckily, I was mistaken, he establishes a rule for the werewolf that he spreads the lycanthropy almost like a vampire would.

There are a few mildly entertaining endings, and the book zips along very fast. So, even though it's not very good, at least it isn't a slog to get through it.
