A great read. Not quite as gripping as Ripper. Too much weirdly angsty Collins which is almost understandable but not quite. Good take on werewolves! ( )

Add myths, legends, secret operatives, Gypsies, and a little bit of science, mix well, et voila, you have Carpathian! A top secret US government agency, known as the Event Group, goes on a search for a previously-unknown wolf species (known as the Golia) that is connected with one of the Lost Tribes of Israel and had direct impact on Biblical and historical events. Of course, they are not alone in their quest as international forces collide, although each group has a different motive. What secrets have been hidden in the Carpathian mountains for over 3000 years?

The book began with a lot of action that promised non-stop thrills. However, once I got to around page 50 the pace seemed to really slow down for quite a long time as the narrative jumped around all over the place (both geographically as well as in time). At a certain point I actually wondered if I'd be able to finish the book. However, once all of the various groups vying for the same prize finally came together in the same time at the same place, the action picked up and was truly non-stop until the end. Interestingly enough, this is the second new book that I've read in the last couple of months that was set at least in part in a new Dracula's Castle tourist attraction, the other being Stoker's Manuscript.
