Lost Letters = Vital Insight
Brother Gabriel was Daniel's Urbat (werewolf) mentor, but we never knew the full story of his transformation as an Urbat in the Dark Divine Series by Bree Despain. Not a main character, Gabriel's evolution isn't the primary focus of the series, but it certainly has a lot to do with who he is and how he led Daniel. In these lost letters, we see how he first became an Urbat, how he struggled with the wolf inside him, and how he became the man he is today.
I have to say this was an enlightening little collection of letters. They help you to know the man you thought you knew. I also appreciated how he talked about the wolf inside him as a separate entity, not a real conjoined piece of himself as we would see it from the outside. In particular, the transition from a vengeful beast to an atoning leader was one you won't want to miss. In a swirl of crappy unnecessary eShorts out there from your favorite series, this one is worth the effort!
