Silver I noticed Shiver on the list. I was one the fence about this book. Reading the description about it, I was afraid it was going to be a werewolf version of Twilight. I would love to hear opinions on this book.

Well, when I made this list I was trying to list books which were alternatives to Twilight's 'sparkly' approach, not just my personal favourites. I thought Shiver was mediocre as a novel, but it did show the fiercer side of werewolves along with the romantic bits, so in a way I thought it was truer to werewolves than Twilight was to its vampire counterparts. I give it seven stars.

Silver Thank you for your thoughts. I will keep that in mind, and consider the book.


message 4: by Tina (new)

Tina Connell Where's Fred Saberhagen?! Where's Chelsea Quinn Yarbro?!

I have all of their books, and have read almost all of them (still a couple of Yarbro's on my TBR stack).

Both of them stack up well against the ones on the above list.
