Product description

Product Description

In the shadowed corners behind enemy lines, Michael Gallatin is England's most potent weapon against Nazi Germany. Blessed and cursed by the ability to transform his flesh, Michael lives between worlds as both man and wolf. A gifted spy and a cunning warrior, he is unmatched in the field. No ordinary agent of the British Crown, he's the one they send when there s no one else.

Returning to a vision first imagined in the New York Times Bestseller The Wolf's Hour, horror master Robert McCammon traces the life of a single man in the midst of the Second World War. From a traveling circus in the Russian steppes, to the skies of North Africa, to the gritty underworld of Berlin itself, The Hunter from the Woods pits Michael against impossible odds, where failure means death and so, too, might victory.

Told through a series of interconnected novellas and short stories, McCammon shows us how Michael lived and loved during a time in history when there was little room for either. A visceral and primal journey, The Hunter from the Woods revels in the intimate cruelty of war, but never fails to illuminate the resilience of the human spirit.

The Wolf's Hour may be Michael Gallatin's greatest adventure, but these are the stories that comprise his life. They present an alternate history every Robert McCammon fan, and every fan of thrilling fiction, will want to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robbert Mccammon is my favorite author in the entire universe 4 March 2017
By Kristall L. Chambers - Published on

Let me say first hand, Robbert Mccammon is my favorite author in the entire universe. He is amazing. He began in the 80s with the huge demand for horror. He has grown in talent and in topics. This is an outstanding second book for this unlikely hero. Spy? Werewolf? you bethca and its BAD A$$. This character sucks you in. There is nothing better than a second book (or more) with an awesome character. When this came out, the hard copy was a bit pricey for me, so I just purchased the electronic version. I stumbled across this new large paperback (not knowing this was a thing) so ordered it, because you know, you have to have the hard copy for your favorites, and I received a SIGNED COPY!! OMG. I'm so excited.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but far from what it could be 10 September 2016
By Patrick Greiffenstein - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
McCammon delivers the usual plot twists and tensions we have come to expect--and like-- from the Gallatin series. But his editor is asleep at the wheel. The occasional line is delivered with gravitas at a key point in time and is just plain campy. Sure fantasy pseudo historical fiction isn't for the NEw York Times book review but it doesn't have the be Walker Texas Ranger Either. Some of the actions and decisions and thoughts simply are not compatible with the thoughts of the man he is supposed to be. I also think Michael the man should get more of the traits and tools of the wolf while in man form. His senses should be heightened (he gets snuck up on way too often) his pain threshold much higher (canines aren't hobbled by pain the way humans are. Just watch dogs play someday). And pound for pound he should be far stronger than any man alive. My 45 lb dog can do things my 65lb nephew could only dream of. But perhaps the biggest annoyance for me, because I am a trauma surgeon and understand both the mechanics of injury and its effects, that Mccammon doesn't have a medical consultant review his manuscripts. Much of the injuries portrayed are either implausible or ridiculously impossible. Still, I am a big fan and eager to read the next Matthew Corbett book. And I sincerely hope there is another Gallatin book in the works

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but could have been better. 28 March 2012
By bc lewis - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The first Gallatin stories were prequels to the events in The Wolf's Hour. And while they were well written they felt kind of well...pointless. Like most prequel stories do. But anyway, they detail his life just before he makes his way of Russia and his adventures in the early days of the war.

The weakest and the most pointless of these is The Sea Chase. Gallatin is supposed to be the main character but really doesn't have much to do with the action but be a bystander. And mentally complain about the shipboard conditions and general hygene of the crew. He had almost nothing to do with the stories resolution, which should have been exciting but just fell flat.

The last two stories were sequels and really were the best of the bunch. And could have been reworked into full lenght novels. Especially Death of a Hunter.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved this authors writing 19 November 2015
By Kim Richards - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As usual, I loved this authors writing. I just hate it was short stories and not a full length novel like it could have been. the last story ended so abrupt it left too many questions. This has been a highly anticipated book for many years. I think he couldve done a little better than this.
5.0 out of 5 stars Short stories outlining life events of Michael Gallatin 27 October 2016
By elviscera - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Excellent collection of short stories each outlining the various details of certain interesting life events of Michael Gallatin who is the protagonist of The wolfs Hour (TWH). There is an interesting and coherent interweaving of the events of TWH with those of these short stories so that as a whole they hang together well. On balance the writing has the same depth, clarity & imagination as TWH (or any of McCammonsother works). In short, if you read and liked TWH, then you may probably also enjoy the present work. At the very least you should try a sample. As a note, in my opinion to best enjoy the current work you should read/reread TWH first (TWH is presently quite affordable).
