*I received this book from NetGalley, and Less than Three Press in return for an honest review.*I believe that the most recent werewolf story/book I read I made some comment about how it had been the best, or among the best or . . . well, I've this vague recollection I made a comment like that regarding a werewolf book relatively recently. I've also relatively recently rated two werewolf books close to 3 stars, so I've not exactly gone out of my head regarding werewolf stories.Why do I mention t [...]
This is cute short story that finally takes the werewolves, alphas etc cliches and shows it all in a different light. There are two main plot-lines – one of the girls being tracked down by her family, and a rival Alpha male challenging the group – which are set against a lot of light day-in-the-life style scenes.The relationships are sweet and believable, if a little obviously sign-posted but this is clearly a romance story so that’s not a big problem.The real strength of this story are th [...]
"Gloria did not intend to start a halfway house for lesbian werewolves. It just sort of happened." Sidenote: this is unarguably the greatest hook/opening line for a summary that has ever existed. It should be framed. I can't believe I've never put those words together sequentially before. Or that I've gone about this earth wanting to read anything else. What a fool I've been!!!The actual story is a pleasant, fluffy short. Slice-of-life supernatural, or domestic fantasy, if you will. Mudge keeps [...]
A breath of fresh air. I'll have more, please.
Really enjoyed this. As with most good novellas, I wish it had been longer, but the end felt organic and fit the flow and tone of the rest of story.
An honest review thanks to NetGalley. This was a great short read, it was different and gave just enough to leave me wanting more. I am not usually a fan of novellas but this one was perfect, with the supernatural element as well as the friendship and loves that we are introduced to. This is a great quick read that you will enjoy!
Humanity for Beginners is a quietly charming novella that subverts some current tropes common in urban fantasy shifter stories.For a start, it centres a lesbian woman in her 40s--not your typical werewolf protagonist. Gloria denies the others' insistence she's their pack alpha. In fact, she denies there's a pack at all (though never that they're a family). Self-control is very important to her and she does her best to act as rationally and as human as she can. This doesn't always work in her fav [...]
this was a nice short story, but i found it wasn't very substantial, even considering its length. i tend to like my short fiction with a mystery or an intrigue in it, rather than the "slice of life" genre, so maybe this was more of a its-not-you-it's-me situation. still, i liked the idea of a quasi-pack (because they're not a pack, don't call them that or gloria will hit you over the head) comprised of female werewolves, because it's quite rare to find female werewolves at all in fiction, let al [...]
Thoroughly enjoyable. Loved the characters and their distinctive natures, and the gorgeous domesticity of the story that offers a clever dichotomy to the usual violence we have come to expect from paranormal stories.
I was a little surprised by how much I enjoyed this novella. Lesbian werewolves running a guesthouse sounded intriguing, but I wasn’t really sure where it could go from there. But this book, short though it is, is a wonderful mix of strong characters and complicated relationships that pulled me into their domestic world and made me sad to leave it.I really liked Gloria. She’s a bit gruff and tough at times, but she’s also super protective of the women in her life and all the strays that se [...]
Just terrific! I can't wait for a sequel! I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I'd like a different ending. I love the entire pack! I would write the plot, but it might give away the storyline. Let's just say that the book was a surprise gift tonight. I was delighted to read this author's take on werewolves. Humour, compassion, and kindness mixed with great storytelling. I would love to stay at this B & B anyday. The supportive characters were just amazing. I love the two guys on the [...]
I started reading this book because from all the other reviews it just sounded very cute and interesting. After reading it (which took only an hour or so to read) I realized that I enjoyed it. I just wish that there was more to the story. It's like a snapshot into the lives of the people living at this B&B. A very simple and adorable story about a group of werewolves living together.
Lovely story - the characters and conflict are well-drawn and interesting, and it's a thoughtful take on the werewolf idea.
I enjoyed this - interesting and likeable characters, good story. Three & a half starsI look forward to reading more stories from Faith Mudge
Disclaimer: I received an e-copy of this book on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Gloria runs a bed-and-breakfast together with Nadine, the chef, and Lissa and Louisa, who work as waitress and maid. They are also all lesbians and werewolves. And nevermind how well they get along, they are not a pack and Gloria is not their alpha. But another pack who wants to settle down in their territory does not really care about these nuances. Gloria is a fascinating character, she has a military b [...]
