Final thoughts: A good quick read. Not too much to think about, and just starting to get into the sex.
Title comes from: The lycanthrope’s euphemism for death (I think – I know it comes from the shapeshifters)
Reading challenges fulfilled: none since this is a review of a book read in a previous year, when apparently I didn’t bother to say much about books after I finished them
