Slow Turning

Like the song says, you can learn to live with love or without it

I’ve recently finished a series of books by Nicky Charles:


The Mating

The Keeping

The Finding

Betrayed: Days of the Rogue

I wasn’t really sure what they were about while I was downloading them but since they were a series, I was intrigued.  After reading them, I now know that I love werewolves.

What’s cuter than bonding with someone because your wolves connected in your dreams?  Your wolf is your conscious when you’re in doubt and are searching for answers.  Your wolf can guide you and pull you in the right direction when your human self is lost.  Even when your human self is devious and less than honest, your wolf will find a way to make amends.  However, when your wolf is hurting and lost, it can also lead you down a dark path.  If your human self is weak, your wolf can take over.

This is really a series of love stories where individuals are finding their mates and building a family and a community.  It’s really not that different from the chick lit books that I also love, but yet, the story seems deeper. More like real life because it’s not just about the two people who are drawn to each other.  It’s about the families they’re born into and the family that they build around them.

This series left me wishing that my inner wolf could find her mate so that we could bond and start having our own pups.  I suppose it’s only appropriate then, that I am now reading The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.  Here’s my favorite passage so far from the book:

Case-in-Point #2: The Werewolf
The full moon rises. The fog clings to the lowest branches of the spruce trees. The man steps out of the darkest corner of the forest and finds himself transformed into…
A monkey?
I think not.

(If you’ve read the book this is hilarious.  If you haven’t read the book, you should.)
