The Wolf Gift is a Re-Gifter

Anne Rice attacks the werewolf world in her highly anticipated latest paranormal.  Although readers of Rice will love her detailed setting, let's face it, we all want to go wherever her books are placed, I felt the story was not finished. 
Now this isn't a bad read.  I have read much worse, but it didn't have the teeth some of her others stories have. 
Her main characters felt like they weren't quite telling their story, and her villains felt a bit long winded. 
I love Rice's ability to transport the reader to her locations.  I love her attention to details, although at times they are tedious.  This one however, just didn't move me the way other of hers have.
