First book I've read by Briggs. This fantasy book has magic, humor, a little romance. Interesting take on split between body, spirit and soul of beings. I'm not interested in reading about how people change into animals (would they get stretch marks, have to go back to where they changed so they can put on clothes?) so may not read many of her other books.

ok so i loved the book & i wouldnt expect anything less from Patricia Briggs. But it wasnt until half way threw the book that i realised that Hob wasnt some short fat little man but really tall and handsome. other wise i loved this book.
