I could go ask at whatwasthatbook but my information is sparse. There's a clan of werewolves in Scotland with an old laird heading it up. No females allowed (possibly because there *are* no female werewolves?) but the clan has a strong-willed housekeeper / laird's sister/ something of the sort, who walks into the top councils anyway. Memory says I was reading this about the same time as The Anubis Gates; is there any hope it *is* The Anubis Gates?
