When Willow first dated laconic laid-back Daniel Osborne, guitarist with hip campus band Dingoes Ate My Baby, it didn't matter to her that he turned into a werewolf every time there was a full moon. After all, as she said to him, 'Three days of the month I'm not much fun to be around either.' But when Oz's savage instincts threaten to overwhelm him and he fears he can no longer control his impulses even outside the full moon, he decides that he's no longer safe for Willow to be around. Leaving a devastated Willow behind him he drops out of college and vanishes out of her life, telling her only that he will return when he is confident he can control the wolf within. Viewers of Buffy Season Four will know that he does return and that thanks to a sage in Tibet he did indeed learn to master the wolfish part of his nature. Christopher Golden's fabulous tale fills in the gaps . . . where he went in his search for knowledge and whom he encountered, what happened to him on his travels and exactly how he learned to find that inner strength and peace.
