The women of Wolf are beautiful, and deadly. The fashion and culture dictate they wear stylized fetters on their arms to show they belong to some clan or house. Those women who are unfettered….well, while more mysterious, they are also shunned by polite society. Oh, and there is torture too. Yes, don’t let me forget about the torture. This book has several things going for it and definitely encourages me to pick up more Marion Zimmer Bradley.
