This novella brings us back into the world of the Parasol Protectorate series and its characters Biffy and Randolph Lyall, both werewolves. The novella takes place about twenty years after the Parasol series and we find out that Biffy and Lyall have been separated for all those years and that Biffy is now the Alpha of the pack. While some of the characters such as Lord Alkadama are included in this story, we also find out what happened to other major characters such as Lord and Lady Maccon since the last book in the series.
I had held off reading this novella until the Christmas season arrived since it was touted as a Christmas story, however, Christmas plays a very small part in it. I did, however, enjoy catching up with these characters and have come to really like Biffy and Lyall.
