Engels created an interesting world of werecats with Always Gray in Winter. The plot was both thrilling and intriguing. I've read a lot of sci-fi or fantasy books, and this one stands out. The characters were driven and full of depth. I liked how this world was built from the mind of Engels. The story is filled with action, and a hint of romance. I liked Pawlina, the main character. I think the plot flows very well, and can almost see this as a graphic novel. I look forward to reading more by this author.
