My Review ~ ★★★★★~ 5 Stars
The Wolves of Paris
An incredible audio performance delivers a gripping tale. Firstly, Rosemary Benson did an amazing job voicing this audiobook. Her performance was flawless all the way around. Her French was impeccable. The characters were ALL very well articulated, including the wolves and I could always tell who was speaking. I was never so drawn into an audiobook as much as I was on this one because of her outstanding work. B R A V A
The Wolves of Paris was an outstanding, well written story with an enchanting plot and wonderful setting in 15th century Paris during the werewolf-witch trials. This was a magnificent piece of folklore history brought to present day through likeable and despicable characters, a skilled writer, and a fabulous voice actor.
Lucrezia, Lady d’ Lisle, widow of the Duke had been watching her husband at night for some time while he and a few other men along with his ex-wife were performing rituals to become wolves by the light of the moon and turn back into men at daylight. Shapeshifters. She decided to interfere thinking she was helping him and re-translated some of the old text in the incantation book and something went terribly wrong. She acquired two mastiffs, Cicero and Tullia to protect herself from the wolves. Cicero is killed by the leader of the wolf pack, a ruddy wolf named Cortaud, and rips off part of his tail causing him to be bob-tailed. Lucrezia encounters the Boccaccio brothers, Marco and Lorenzo in passing and decides to tell Lorenzo of the story by saying that she had poisoned her husband.
This is a delicious, riveting story of fact or fiction folklore from the compelling pages of Parisian history that I highly recommend as an UNforgettable audio experience.
