Grace has been fascinated for years by the wolves that live in the forest behind her house. Every winter she waits to see them - especially the one with the yellow eyes - even though she was mauled by wolves when she was younger. Sam is a boy, but he's also a wolf who keeps watch on a particular house. Every winter the cold brings on a greater transformation than just a change of seasons; against the cold, Sam is helpless to keep himself from changing into a wolf. One fateful day the two finally meet as humans, and they know that the connection that they felt as human and human is even stronger than the connection they felt as human and wolf. The thing is, after so many winters of turning into a wolf, it gets harder and harder to change back into a human - and Sam doesn't have long until he is a wolf forever. Grace and Sam struggle to hold out against the cold for as long as they can, but how can you stop winter?Categories: Reviews

In this compelling sequel to Chains, Anderson uses the American Revolution as the backdrop to the lives of Curzon and Isabel, escaped black slaves who long for freedom and search for family. Readers will be appalled at the treatment of slaves and horrified at the starvation and ragged living conditions that Curzon endures as a recruit in Washington's army. Isabel wears an iron neck ring so her master can chain her up like an animal and Curzon and his fellow soldiers stand barefoot in the snow. Categories: Reviews
