Synopsis: Winter is cruel, even for wolfs, and they starts to hunt for (wo)men. Village is in fear; revender asks help of mysterious high house owner, who knows skin changing lore. Priest wants to try lore to hunt down the leader of wolfs. Fur trader is of course under the hunt.
Comment: John Pocsik's oldish story has grace. Even Corben's style is made same oldish way, but it is definately not his very best wolf stories. Story needs more action and it stops a little bit too quick.
