    1. FBI Agents Mulder and Scully travel to rural Montana to investigate a fatal shooting on a ranch bordering a Native American reservation. The shooting victim, a young Indian boy who was mistaken for a wild animal, may have possessed the ability to shape-shift into a lycanthropic beast—that's right, a werewolf—a phenomenon that was documented back in 1946, in the very first X-File.Shapes is, more or less, a garden-variety werewolf tale blended with a heaping saltspoon of Native American folklo [...]

    2. Looks like marginal episodes make for great adaptations. I was really impressed with how enjoyable this version of the episode "Shapes" was. It felt a little more well-rounded than I remember its television counterpart to be. The author managed to give small insights into the characters and situations without walking all over the existing script which is commendable and made for a compelling retelling. I have a craving to go watch the episode and read X-Files: Year Zero again.

    3. FBI Agents Mulder and Scully visit Montana to investigate a mysterious killing. The rancher who shot and killed a man, claims he was attacked by a red-eyed beast. However, the body is clearly a Trego Indian from a neighboring reservation. Might the Trego man and the wild beast be one and the same? Do shapeshifting manitous exist? Mulder and Scully try and find the truth. Fans of the show will enjoy.

    4. Un 2,5. La trama se desvela demasiado lentamente de manera que es bastante predecible. Tan solo te sorprende en el final, aunque tampoco sea nada del otro mundo. Un aprobado, sin más.

    5. Sem perder a dinâmica dos outros livros da série, o livro aborda a lenda indígena do manitu, um ser meio homem meio animal, aterrorizando uma zona rural em montana.
