A fine story for fans of werewolves
Let me preface this by saying werewolves are not my cup of tea. That said, I attempted to be as impartial as I could in this review.
Lies die Geschichte jetzt
Full disclosure: This review covers only the starting chapter, as that is all I've read so far.
On this first chapter we meet our protagonist. What we need to learn about her is learned in three very quick paragraphs: she's a loner, she's fierce, and she's a werewolf. The author made a quick and effective impression in just three paragraphs, which is always a plus.
Furthermore, the author wasted no time setting up the main conflict of the story, which is always a plus when reading a novel of this caliber. There's no messing about with convoluted histories or terminologies; here's the conflict, here's the character, let's get crackin'. This is, in my opinion, a major plus in the author's and the story's favor.
That said, I must now go to the bad of this chapter. The author's writing style is quick, to the point, but at the same time, it doesn't paint a picture for the reader. We're told there's a small town, but we're not invited to imagine it. I could not get a sense of the environment surrounding our main character, which is a negative FOR ME, but could be a positive for other readers.
Overall, I say: this story isn't FOR ME, but I have reason to believe fans of the genre would find plenty to sink their canines into.
