The Hound of Rowan was a very interesting book. It had elements of fantasy while also showing sci-fi, mystery, and other genres.
Without giving the story away, I will tell you that Max, the main character, discovers this unusual tapestry. From there, the events are set in motion. Max gains attendance to a strange school, meets friends, and discovers creatures that some would consider supernatural. But, with every fantastic discovery, there are those who would try to destroy them. In this instance, the very shadows are the antagonists and their forces include humans and werewolf-like creatures called vyes. This book shows the epic struggle between man and darkness... and a strange power coming from the past. I found this book so addictive; you'd want it to be a movie! It's the next Harry Potter, yet better!
