Anne Rice Has Forsaken Vampires for Werewolves

Anne Rice.

Are werewolves finally having their moment? Long dismissed as the hot-bodied, romantic also-ran in properties like Twilight, True Blood, and The Vampire Diaries, the shape-shifters found front-and-center success this year in Teen Wolf, and now they've gotten a vote of confidence from none other than Interview With the Vampire author Anne Rice, who's left vampire stories behind for her new book, The Wolf Gift, about a young man who becomes a werewolf. (A subject her sister, Alice Borchardt, has already written several novels about.) Can you feel the pendulum swinging back to Team Jacob? It's so alt! [Geek News/MTV]
