The Wolves of Midwinter
A NoveleBook - 2013
It is the beginning of December. Oak fires are burning in the stately flickering hearths of Nideck Point. It is Yuletide.

The Yuletide season, sacred to much of the human race, has been equally sacred to the Man Wolves, and Reuben soon becomes aware that they, too, steeped in their own profound rituals, will celebrate the ancient Midwinter festival deep within the verdant richness of Nideck forest.
