Werewolf Nights was an interesting read! One of my favorite parts of this story was the setting! Wereville kind of reminded me of Star’s Hollow from Gilmore Girls, if it were overrun with paranormal enthusiasts, that is. It was small town America, where everyone knows your name and every detail of your life, and it had a very rich history of some pretty fierce werewolf legends. I loved that the whole town adamantly believed in the existence of werewolves and werewolf hunters, and they celebrated it with gusto.
I thought the legend of Wolfern was almost Shakespearean, a tragic sort of love story. It made it conflicting on how I felt about Wolfern in the present, as I almost pitied him and his endless search for his true love. I actually found him to be one of the most interesting characters in the story! I also really liked Greg, so their inevitable connection only intrigued me further! I never really connected with Catherine. I didn’t dislike her by any means, but I also never really got invested in her either. While I did feel bad for some of her circumstances in life, I felt as if there was just something missing from her that really pulled me in. But Greg and Wolfern easily gave me two characters to be actively engaged with, and the plot was strong.
I also thought the addition of filming a movie in this quirky town, while all this werewolf chaos was happening, added a whole new level of interesting. One you’re a few chapters in the things are happening at a steady pace which made it effortless to keep flipping through page after page to see what would happen next. All in all I enjoyed this story, it reminded me of a more old school approach on werewolfs, with a more compelling plot line of man struggling with an inner wolf, like Wolfman or Silver Bullet. It was a nice change of pace from the more new age smexy Alpha pack stories that are all I see anymore,
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
