Book Review

I truly relish a nice werewolf story and this one, albeit rather short, fit the bill. The story was well written and since the whole plot revolves around secrets, it was something easy to relate to. It was also a not too horribly fantastical 'out-of-this-world' concept of werewolves so it was a believable interpretation.

Leland and Drew have been best friends since they were eight. Now at thirty-one they've shared everything with each other. Well, everything except a few pretty big doozy secrets, that is. Confessing to them brings Leland and Drew closer together, but will it be enough to combat the threat to their relationship?

This is a short story but very sweet. The ending was a little predictable and abrupt, but all in all it worked within the confines of the story. The main characters are both nice men trying to come clean. If you enjoy a little taste of the paranormal world, then this might be for you.
