The love story completely didn't go were I initially thought it would go but the unexpected turn was perfect and delivered a sharper impact. (Nothings better than poetic justice)Boyd writes this story with dexterity and finesse that is not usually seen in paranormal romances but its written so well I can hardly put this novel in the same category in those gaudy over sexualized novels. Boyd puts a new spins on the werewolf regime (which is a breath of fresh air) instead of loup garous being this uncontrollable beast that emerges every full moon, the loup garous are intelligent, loyal, exotically mystifying, and beautiful beings who revel in the willful transformation of changing from human to wolf. but however beautiful they are, they are just as disgustingly arrogant and very much unattainable. My only complaint was Tessa (Human protagonist) I wish she was more. I found that I was annoyed that she was the representation of what a human was seen as and was the one to be bought into that world. I wanted her to be something.... smart, witty, strong willed, charming, or even seductive but instead she came off as a stupid awe struck child pinning for love and respect she would never receive. Had she possessed any of those qualities it would have made her character more interesting and hopefully in a way that made the loup garous admire and somewhat respect her instead of just laugh and look down on her....never the less this story is nothing less than amazing and if I could forget it and reread all over again I would repeatedly....more

Sigh... this is what great literature is about. Although the above poem is actually a poem from the novel I felt like Vladimir wrote Lolita like a poem. "Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, My Soul. Lo.Lee.Ta the tip of a toungue taking a trip of three steps down the palate tap. at three on the teeth. Lo.Lee.Ta." This said from a pedophile about his child nympo. Only a talented writer could write about pedophilia in such a way that the reader sees Humbert Humbert as the victim and sympathizes for him even though he is a pedohile. We the readers almost want to root for him and scream that "its not his fault he is this way!" and yet see him as someone who is decieving himself, as someone who needed to make the true victim the victimizer, as someone who is truly disturbed and as someone who still causes unease. I pitied him (he had unwaranted sexual desires for a child who reminds him if his first young unconsumated love), I hated him (he didnt feel remorse and didnt resist, he brided a child for sexaul favors). And the pendulum swang. Oh Vladimir belissimo! This novel is recommended to anyone who wants to experience literary deception.
The little things: the book begins and ends with the name lolita. Humbert literally dies of coronary thrombosis which in essence suppose to mean he literally dies of a broken heart
