I read this book after Ambereye.
Many comments say that Ambereye, book 2 of the Garoul series, is better than Goldenseal, book 1.
I don't know if I agree; they are very different.
I really liked Ambereye which is almost all romance, with the main character Jolie really amusing, so nervous and sweet.
Goldenseal, on the other hand, is a wonderful mistery book and the one of the best werewolf novel I have ever read.
Leone Garoul si really a problematic character, walking on the edge of right and wrong behaviour. She's not always positive, she can be istinctive, proud, coward, dangerous and violent.
But for this very reason she's also so real and so "human"!
