"Totally paranormal, fully urban and all queer"
Mystery, romance and action are just some of the genres
covered in this werewolf filled anthology. Stories of
prejudice, confusion and passion are just some of the
feelings the authors have captured to make this set of
stories unique. Totally paranormal, fully urban and all
queer this is a collection of tales that will appeal to a
lot of readers, gay or not.
Everything starts of with 'Wolf Strap' and keeps the reader
interested till 'A Wolf's Moon'. Jam packed full with
unique and well written stories this is an anthology worth
checking out. Like any anthology some of the stories are
better than others. However each one is different and has
some hidden answers, meaning or facts.
With some young adult stories and a few hot and sexy scenes
this anthology covers a wide spectrum. However I have to
say the men get more of a say in this one and I would have
preferred to see more female writers. The first story was
for me the best out of the bunch but I think each reader
will find different favorites.
