This is a short story about a girl, Vivia, who loved it when her brother Hanal told her the story about the boy who turned into a wolf. This story always fascinated her and made her long to see a real wolf.
By the time Vivia was thirteen, she was sent to live with a woman named Katra. Katra was a witch, or as they are referred to in this book, people with guile, something that Vivia has. She is learning about her gift and the ability to heal. One night everything changes for Vivia when a knock on the door brings her face to face with a real boy-wolf, Lashti. Lashti has the gift of illusion. Is he really a wolf, or does he just think he is?
If he is a real wolf, he represents a danger to Vivia who has come to love him. He could be cured if she slept with him and became his, but is that something she is willing to do? Can she give up everything she is to save Lashti? She faces a decision that even adults would have trouble making. If she doesn’t help Lashti is he facing life as a wolf?
We meet Vivia in this book and she will be coming back in future books, which I look forward to. There is no sex, no explicit violence, just a young girl facing a very difficult decision that could affect the rest of her life. What will become of Lashti?
