Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The mystery is interesting, and all the details add up at the end. The revelation that the entire nobility are werewolves was a bit of a surprise, but not entirely so. (Patch's reaction to the question about Werewolves was a clue.)

Con: Several points in the story strain disbelief. Why do Mr. Winters's thugs manhandle Drake before he's even talked to him yet? Why does Corth suggest a duel with Drake, even though Drake is a commoner?
