Read full description of the books:
Wow - this one was really good. It's old, written in 1992, and has a sweeping, epic feel to it, as it spans several decades and two countries, both the US and Russia. It reminds me of those sweeping period dramas that were made into mini-series back in the 70's and 80's - the Thorn Birds, Abel and Cain, etc. It's the story of a young man who washes ashore on the coast of California in the mid 1800's. He's naked, injured, and cannot remember a single thing beyond this moment.
And what a story. This stranger travels from the ranches of Cali to the swamps of Louisiana and back again. He becomes a doctor, and fights in the American Civil War. He meets witches of the Indian, Creole, Finnish, Dutch, and Russian varieties. And, under the light of the full moon, he shifts into a beast.
The ending is good, too, with author Toombs setting up the dynastic element for the Volek clan, with the unanswered questions: what will become of the Volek curse of the twins? Will this mysterious new woman, whom he's let into the compound, bring fortune or tragedy? Is she, too, a shapeshifter? If I can find a copy of the next book in the series, I will continue on...
