July 2013 Book of the Month A chilling story of werewolves and other supernatural happenings lies behind this gripping story of the dark secrets and rich strand of mythology that are woven into the fabric of the village of Wolfstone. Peter joins his father on an archaeological dig and is soon spooked by mysterious happenings at nearby Wolfstone manor as he gets dangerously close to uncovering some of the sinister werewolf mysteries and what they are disguising. Although he is warned off, Peter continues to probe. How will he and Carys, a local girl who helps him, stay safe from the Wolfstone Curse? Much is unexpected in this many layered and richly textured story.

A Piece of Passion from Helen Boyle,Commissioning Fiction Editor at Templar: The werewolf… that ancient beast, the stuff of legend.
