Booklist Review

Johanna Schell, an early practitioner of psychiatry, is responsible. She looks after her stroke-stricken psychiatrist father, the handful of patients they brought west to their new asylum, the Haven, and even the inebriate she finds passed out on her way home. Using hypnosis she tries to help her new patient, Quentin Forster, by delving into the causes of his drunken binges only to find that he has curious memory lapses and harbors the delusion that he's a werewolf. As Quentin befriends the other patients, Johanna finds herself confiding in and trusting him, even though she finds him overwhelmingly attractive. When danger besets the asylum and a young girl is kidnapped, Quentin and Johanna must cure his inner demon in order to rescue the girl from a horrible fate. The third book in Krinard's saga of the loup-garou Forster siblings, an artful combination of heartfelt romance, psychiatric historical detail, and werewolf lore, will elicit howls of delight from her ever-growing following. --Diana Tixier Herald
