Late Halloween Themed Post about Werewolfs

In honor of Halloween I had wanted to read some appropriately themed books. (This post is late due to Super Storm Sandy and my own laziness.)


 Moon ShadowsMoon Shadows by Nora Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just reading Wolf Moon for my Nora Roberts Reading Challenge. I have read everything published since 2004 (except for the books that haven't been released yet).

I have to say I like how Nora Roberts seems to write these male characters who just worm their way into the woman's life.  Simone wants to keep her distance since she's been turned into a werewolf but Gabe just nudges his way into her life.  Together they end up working on a way to cure Simone of being a werewolf.

Personally it's the first time I've read this concept of trying to cure the werewolf.  I've seen it done in TV shows and it never really goes far, but I like the way Nora worked with the concept.  Simone had been working on it but she just needed Gabe.  A fresh set of eyes, a medical background, and a personal connection to make it all that more important to succeed.



Forever Werewolf: Forever Werewolf\Moon KissedForever Werewolf: Forever Werewolf\Moon Kissed by Michele Hauf
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
(I received an ebook copy from NetGalley)

I haven't read Michele Hauf before but it seems that she has created her own little paranormal world filled with vampires and werewolves. This caused some problems with understanding some back story which put a hitch in the plot of Forever Werewolf and a little less so in Moon Kissed.  I think the couples worked well together but I could have used just a little more build up to the relationship in Moon Kissed.
- small spoiler below -
There was one thing in each story that just didn't work for me.  In Forever Werewolf Tryst has this kind of snowboarder dude inner dialogue persona and it just didn't seem to fit with this serious lone wolf guy he's supposed to be. In Moon Kissed, the whole combo he's a werewolf and now she's a vampire thing just bothered me, I think the story would have been great otherwise.
