Summary

Halloween is a wild, weird night in the lonely moorland towns of the north. It's dark and cold, and cracks can open up in the fabric of the safest world.

Davey Bell has been trying to live safely. He's struggled through a rough adolescence and has a decent job, a home of his own. He agrees to a meeting with his ex, even though Burdo got him into so much trouble in the past.

But Burdo has plans, armed robbery among them. When Davey recoils from his efforts at blackmail, Burdo swears he'll track him down. There's something inhuman about Burdo's rage, and Davey panics and runs from him. The town is small, the darkness beyond it absolute. Davey has lived there all his life, but he takes a wrong turn on the moorland road and is suddenly lost.

It's the first night of winter and set to freeze hard. Not much chance of survival for a man without shelter, a man on the run from his past... Then Davey stumbles into the forest, and his fears of Burdo and the cold dissolve to nothing at the sound of deep, bestial growls.

The moon is full. Ancient moorland legends are coming to life in its silvery radiance. Out of the woodland steps a strange young man, and the snarling beasts fall back. He's offering sanctuary, but at what price? He's the most beautiful creature Davey has ever seen. If Davey follows him in fascination through the gateway of Wolf Hall, what secrets will unfold before the dawn?

Enjoyable short story

I enjoyed this story, a modern werewolf tale set in Northumberland with interesting characters and a believable villain. I listened to this without having read it first but didn't struggle with story or characters and I thought that the narrator did a good job with the accents as well.
All in all a nice little short with danger, werewolves, redemption and set in the north of England which doesn't happen very often and was very nice to hear.

Hmmm...it's okay...

To be perfectly honest; this story was a bit off for me. I never really did get a grasp on what the author was trying to set forth. We have David Bell and the past relationship with Burdo and then we have David with Lawrey...a werewolf?! Though the author attempted to tie the two together, I could sense a struggle...I am a fan of Harper Fox's writing...this story was not the best...it's okay.

Fun spooky romance

This was a fun listen. I liked that the werewolves were never overly romanticized. It kept the dramatic tension going when most romances would have gone with the whole sexy werewolf trope.

Hauntingly Lovely!

Hauntingly lovely. I think those words describe much of Harper Fox’s writing, and this short was no exception.

A young man escaping a monster from his past, flees into the woods one Halloween night only to stumble upon a beautiful stranger who squires him off to Wolf Hall, his home.

Secrets are traded, but not necessarily believed. After all, werewolves are the stuff of myths and legends. There’s a dungeon, and chains, and tenderness before the hearth. A change occurs in both young men where secrets revealed are accepted, and together they face them.

Beautifully narrated by Tim Gilbert.

Good Short Halloween Story

A bit ambiguous but good and creepy. Also very sexy. I particularly enjoyed the growling bush.

Very well written

I enjoyed listening to this! I wish there was more because of all the promise the characters have in a longer piece. It has some very detailed parts of nsfw content, but it was written very well and enjoyably. The performance was legendary. Made it really come to life.

Cute short story

I've enjoyed several of Harper Fox's books and this one is no exception. It's a really sweet little story and I enjoy Tim Gilbert's narration. He does a great job of bringing the characters and the world around them to life. I also love the glimpse into small/nearly obscure Cornish village life Harper Fox has put into several of her books. It's a way of life that not many people can even fathom anymore with all our high technology and big cities. If you give this a try and enjoy it, then definitely check out her Tyack and Frayne mystery series.

good novella

I felt like these characters were side characters in the Tyack and Frayne series. This short novella could have fit in just depicting a different type of paranormal ability. Davey finds safety in the arms of a handsome man who might be on the bring of becoming a werewolf. I don't know if I just had trouble understanding or if the scene is pretty vague, but the change does not happen. Not right away. For Davey, it seems like he might be writing it all off as a strange dream, and he leaves Wolf Hall. It was a little disappointing that he didn't try to figure out what was going on. I say that from the safety of my own existence without werewolves so I suppose I shouldn't judge. However, there is an opportunity for Davey to run back into the Wolf family. It was enjoyable, though I didn't feel the romance was strong in comparison to the world building. I think Tim Gilbert is an excellent narrator, and I would listen to him again.

Wish it was longer

This was a great story that I wish had either been longer or the start of a series. I'd love to know more about the Devlin clan, the townsfolk, and especially David and Lowry.
