Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars


Ilya, the youngest son of a Moscow oligarch, is so deep in the closet he’d find Narnia if that weren’t a decadent Western story. On Christmas Eve, his brothers lure him into the forest, intending to murder him and erase the shame he inflicts on their family by existing. However, the attempt is interrupted by Volyk, a wolf who carries the blood of the ancient oboroten’ —shapeshifters. Ilya never imagined a Christmas gift like the handsome wolf, but accepting what Volyk offers will have consequences that change both of their lives forever.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2014 Advent Calendar package Celebrate!

Caroline’s View:

Russia is not the place to be gay under the rule of Putin especially when you are part of a wealthy and prominent family. Ilya is the youngest of 3 sons and when his brothers take him out to the woods to murder him for bringing shame on the family they don’t plan on encountering an abnormally large wolf. Terrified the brothers run leaving Ilya clinging to life. Volyk, the wolf, is a shapeshifter and may just be the perfect Christmas present for Ilya.
