4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

In the 10 lectures within this audiobook, author and teacher Shannon Scott takes you around the world exploring the stories humans have created about wolves, shapeshifting, and lycanthropy. She talks about folklore, Brother’s Grimm fairy tales, movies, books, and so much more. 

This was a very interesting look at wolves and werewolves. I enjoyed the delve into the history behind the creation of werewolves and other types of shifters. It was fascinating and I loved how she referenced everything from folklore, romantic literature from the Medieval period, to modern songs like Shakira’s “She Wolf”. 

If you are a fan of wolves and werewolves, I suggest listening to this audiobook. It presents the history behind this creature that is now such a huge icon in horror movies, pop culture, and in paranormal romance books.
