Twelve-year-old Marius promised his mother on her deathbed six years earlier that he would look after his little brother, Jean-Pierre. Jean-Pierre carries the curse of the loup garou, the werewolf, because he was born on Christmas Eve. Southern France in 1559 is in the grips of a widespread hysteria as the Church tries to supress the growing power of "heretics," Huguenots-- people who don't believe in the Holy Church. The villagers of Marius' town become swept up in the mass frenzy, hungry to find and destroy anyone who defies the power of the church.

display_description In sixteenth-century France, ruled by a Church that overtaxes peasants and burns heretics, Marius must postpone his apprenticeship to care for his six-year-old brother, whose birth took their mother's life, and who the villagers, backed by the Church, believe will become a "loup garou" -- a werewolf.
