Behind Laila's keyhole

by S. A. Swann

Are you,

pray tell,

wondering what was behind the door of Laila's keyhole?

Description from the amazon:
In this captivating reinvention of the werewolf novel, S. A. Swann propels readers into the darkest days of the Middle Ages, weaving a rare blend of soaring romance, historical intrigue, paranormal thrills, and spiritual questioning to tell a story that forever changes those who hear it.

When a monk inadvertently discovers a lair of werewolf young, he unleashes what will become the Church’s most powerful–and secret–weapon. Clandestinely raised by the Teutonic Order, these lupine creatures serve as instruments of God against pagan unbelievers. Trained to slip into villages cloaked in human form, they are all but unstoppable. Only one, called Lilly, has cunningly fled her brutal master.

Uldolf is too young to remember the massacre eight years earlier that claimed his village, his arm, and his kin. But he knows the pain of loneliness. When he sees what appears to be a beautiful young woman, injured and cowering in the woods, he races to her aid. Uldolf and his adoptive family will do anything to protect the terrified girl, but the danger is greater than they can possibly imagine. For death is the only life Lilly has ever known–and if their humanity can’t pierce the darkness Lilly harbors in her soul, they’ll soon come to know it, too.

  1. There's a dutch children's book (Pluk van de Petteflet) that has a werewolf ferryman. His name 'heen- en weerwolf' is a pun, but very difficult to translate, but refers to the fact he's ferrying back and forth.

  2. What happens when a werewolf swallows a clock?
    He gets ticks.

  3. One of my favorite werewolf movies: Teen Wolf. Yeah I know it's cheesy, but so much fun. ~Tobe (

  4. Just finished reading good were book, rogue, by rachel vincent, what I wanna know is why do they always make fun of the movie the howling? (this is not the first book i've read this year that makes fun of it)

  5. As soon as I saw the cover I thought of Wolf the movie, starring Jack Nicholson. Not sure why my brain connected the two but it did.

  6. Werewolf in French is Loup-Garou :)

  9. JACOB BLACK - last name is Black, Is a werewolf. Is totally the love child between Sirius and Lupin. :)

  10. Why do werewolves do well at school?
    Because every time they're asked a question, they come up with a snappy answer.

    X Men: First Class won't be the same without Logan:(


  11. Bad Moon is a pretty good werewolf movie.

  12. Interesting book! I love historical fantasy, and this one has werewolves in it. I'll have to check it out!

  13. Raised By Wolves was a really good book. I just recently discovered The Mating, The Keeping, and The Finding by Nicky Charles. If you are ok with a little bodice ripping they are great reads! Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. I have this thing for bad wolves, so... looks great! A nice werewolf movie is Blood and Chocolate (it's also a book).

  15. The movie Underworld shows the never-ending fights between vampires and Lycans (werewolves). It's a great movie. :)

  16. My latest werewolf read would be How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper.


  17. Bitten by Kelley Armstrong and Stolen by Kelley Armstrong. Awesome werewolf books and the first 2 in her otherworld series.

    And in response to Karla Vollkopf, I love Underworld but it's totally more of a vampire movie.

  18. Have you read Kendra Leigh Castle Call of the Highland Wolf books, it is a trilogy, very awesome. Scottish werewolves so freaking sexy!!1

  19. Here are some werewolf lines that you might like that I love:

    ~Don’t you have better things to chase cars and lick yourself?

    ~Oh, don’t tell’s driving you barking mad.

    ~Let me guess.....fleas?

    ~Ahh, looks like someone’s in the doghouse.

    Funny things to say to a hot werewolf boy--love 'em!
