2nd time around: Lucky me I get to read a favorite book and do school research at the same time. I just simply adore it.

"it is impossible to tell a wolf from a man if
he keeps his chin up
and his teeth clean"

This book did for me with werewolves what I Am Legend did for me with vampires. Only "Sharp Teeth" is contemporary to this year. Finally a refreshing tale ringing with truths, blood, violence, and romance (only romance without the fluff). Barlow brings the werewolf legend back to life and sharpens its teeth in the process. Besides the content, this book is also written in verse, sort of like Ovid meets modern LA. I have never quite read anything like it, am extremely happy to have taken a chance on it, and am placing it under my favorites section. Here's one of my favorite sections:

"And were you cornered by her,
eye to eye,
you would see that
there are still some watchful creatures
whose essence lies unbound by words.
There is still a wilderness."
