The Trouble with Werewolves

Rate this book
Ellie Weston may look like a blonde Barbie wanna-be, but call by her full name of Elvira and you’ll find she can take you down with nothing more than a paperclip and a hair tie. Having been raised by an ancient vampire, a faerie and a demon hardly makes her a normal teen. She’s trained in self-defense, with a bit of magic thrown in, but those talents are going to waste as she picks up dry cleaning, walks three-headed dogs and collects grave dust by the light of the full moon.

Her job as an errand girl to the undead--and other paranormal creatures--has kept her busy and relatively safe, until she receives a job to hunt down a rogue werewolf who is brutally butchering norms in her father’s territory. As she tries to track down the bloodthirsty beast, she finds the clues aren’t quite adding up. Will her wiles be enough to keep her safe and solve the mystery, or will she become the next victim of these ghastly crimes?

Vampires, demons, and werewolves oh my! The Trouble With Werewolves is a fun, fast-paced story with an original premise.

As the adopted daughter of a powerful vampire, Ellie is an errand girl to all manner of supernatural creatures. There was a nice balance of action, mystery, and humour in this story. Ellie is funny and smart, and while she has lots of personality, I’m hoping we’ll see more depth and growth from her in future books. I’m also looking forward to seeing where things go with the hint of romance, and the questions that arose toward the end.

If you’re looking for a new spin on the supernatural genre and you want something quick and fun with a few twists and surprises, you should check out The Trouble With Werewolves. This was a great start to what promises to be an interesting series, and I’m eager to keep reading!

I was given an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Given I'm a supernatural creature junkee, I enjoyed this story. Vampires, werewolves, demons, and more! But, also, it was an interesting premise. We've had humans raised by the undead, but never had that human have a job running errands for the supernatural creatures. That gave the story a unique twist and allowed the glimpses into the world Ellie lives in we might not otherwise get if she didn't have to walk a couple of hell hounds or take Selkie pelts to the dry cleaner.

There are some cliches. You just know Sampson cares deeply about Ellie despite how he acts and it's obvious how he's hiding his feelings (badly at times) and eye rolling how oblivious she is. But I enjoyed the banter between the two. Snark is so much fun. It adds a lightness to the story. The other cliche is the mystery at the end But it's one of those cliches were you want to read more to know if it was a big lie and the cliche is being flipped, or if it is just a classic cliche and how will Ellie deal with it. Sometimes, I read cliches and just groan. This wasn't the case.

I'd say my main complaint would be the story moved fast. It's a novella, so it's not long to begin with and it flowed smoothly, but I would have like the plot to slow down so I could enjoy the world more and get to know the characters better. I got the gist of who they were, but I think a little more fleshing out would have been nice.

Overall, it's a good start to a fun series. I look forward to what other creatures will appear in future books. Any lover of vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures will want to pick this up.

This was a fun, easy read that was recommended to me. Ellie Weston has been raised by a vampire, and spends her evenings as a self named “Errand girl to the undead.” Although, it's not just undead she runs errands for. If you're part of the supernatural world and can't handle your errands yourself, Ellie is your girl. Pick up dry cleaning? Check. Water lawns for those out of town? Check. Track down rogue Werewolves? Check.
And that's where Ellie runs into trouble. There's a vamp looking to take care of a rogue werewolf, but the entire thing goes weird. With the help of Samson, a blue furred demon, Ellie figures out what's going on with the werewolf, without getting herself on the menu.
Cute, fun, easy read. I'd love to to see more, as Ellie is a fun character, and the supporting cast are also great to read.

A nice, fast-paced story, with sympathetic characters and good resolution. I particularly liked the sleazy, heart-of-gold demon and the vampire longing for the beach and sipping his blood through a straw with a little paper umbrella. There were little touches like this throughout, that lifted the story above the ordinary, and I do think this writer has real talent.

That said, the quality wasn't what I like to see in a published work. Rigorous editing ought to have firmed up the writer's shaky grasp of tense, and corrected a number of misspellings, and things like 'should of' and 'lay' used intransitively. The work is well worth the effort to give it the polish for which it cries out.

As the author, I have to give it a good rating. I really enjoyed writing this series. Ellie is a spunky, sarcastic, fun heroine and I hope more of her adventures will want to be told in the future.
