When I want a good werewolf or shape shifter story there are a few authors that are on my go-to list. There are those books I have read and re-read to get my lupine fix. Sometimes the main character is the shifter. In some books they play a supporting role. Whether the lady in the spotlight or the man on the sidelines, I just love these characters.
It used to be that I would have to wait until October for a new batch of Paranormal Romances to be released. Halloween was always good for some otherworldly heroes. Mostly this included vampires. I love me some blood suckers, but we are focused on their furry friends this week. It used to be a rarity to find books with werewolf characters, never mind were-cats, were-bears, or were-guinea pigs. When Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance hit the big time scores of Halloween readers rejoiced. Vampires in January? Demons in April? Werewolves all year long??!!?!? Huzzah!!!
So now these books are abundant. With such abundance, however, comes overexposure and a vast disparity in quality. There is the good and there is the bad. Let us not dwell on the bad. Instead, let us list the good. Together, let's create a reading list of books we have read and found to be exciting, delicious, decadent and down right fantastic. Share with us your favorite werewolf/shifter book and I will add it in an ever growing reading list. Let's see just how extensive a list we can compile.
