LadyVampire's Halloween Giveaway Day 3
Contest Day Three
Well it’s day three and we’ve tackled ghosts and vampires on here so far so you might have already guessed today would be about werewolves. Shifters come in all kinds of different species in books but wolves were the first and are the most predominant.
Its interesting the takes authors have of werewolves in different books. Some lose there humanity when they change while others keep their human mind while in the body of their werewolf self. Not long ago though, I read a book about a wolf bitten by a werewolf infected human. He changed into a human during the full moon. I thought it a stroke of genius personally. It was a fun read. For anyone interested its called “Howling Mad” by Peter David.
Today though, I’d like to talk about werewolves in books. What are your favorite series? Mine would take a long time to list completely but here are some that come to mind at the moment: Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake series, Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series, Lori Handeland’s Night Creature series, Keri Arthur’s Riley Jenson Guardian series, Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series, Susan Krinard’s werewolf books, etc.
Your favorite werewolf book? I have many but right now my top book that features a werewolf hero would be “Wicked Deeds on a Winter’s Night” by Kresley Cole.
Have a favorite werewolf hero? For me, it would be hard to pick one favorite when there are so many great books and series out there. One of my favorites is Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series. Elena, Clay and Jeremy are portrayed awesomely in this series and definitely on my favorites list. And then there is Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series. I simply love Bowen from “Wicked Deeds on a Winter’s Night”, even if he started off being pretty rotten in the beginning. The book for me was perfectly written and Bowen really came to life in my minds eye while reading it. In Keri Arthur’s Riley Jenson Guardian series, I really like Riley. She’s half vampire and half werewolf but has embraced her werewolf side more fully. Besides having a dynamite personality for Riley, the books in this series are full of action, surprising twists and engaging plots.
Anyhow, let me know your favorites in comments.
