new_user Most of the ones I've enjoyed have been historical PNR, I think, besides Briggs. Try Shiver or Bitten. Here's my werewolf shelf, if you want to check it out too.

I was going to suggest SHIVER, too. If you like YA, it's a MUST read. I absolutely loved it and werewolves are not usually my thing!

Cindy | 31 comments I also suggest Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1) by Maggie Stiefvater , i loved it :)


message 6: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (jnhart) The Riley Jenson Guardian series by Keri Arthur is about a half-were, half-vamp (she says she's more wolf than vamp)

Sandy Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series
Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville series
Howling at the Moon series Karen MacInerney

Zainab | 20 comments For one that isn't a main character, you can try City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. The werewolves aren't the main characters, but they're pretty close?

I went looking through my shelves and have come to a conclusion. I have NOT read enough books about werewolves!

Definately pick up the Mercedes Thompson series. I go back and forth between liking Mercy or Alpha & Omega better. It usually depends on which book I read last ;)

Blood and Chocolate was also very good.

I'm going to bump some of these other rec's up on my To-Read list I think.

Julia | 119 comments Here's one of those underappreciated yet very good books:

Howling Mad Howling Mad by Peter David by Peter David.


message 11: by Paula (new)

Paula (pauldajo) Ilona Andrews in her Kate Daniels series Magic Bites, Magic Burns, Magic Strikes has shapeshifters that include werewolves.


message 12: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (jnhart) There's a book called Saint Peter's Wolf by Michael Cadnum that has a crazy way of becoming a werewolf. I read it a long time ago, but I thought it was pretty good.

Kindlelicious | 5 comments The wolves in Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series are fantastic!

Jess Just finished the Kate Daniels series - loved it! Couldn't put them down!
They are not only about werewolves, though, a bunch of weres are running around. Kate ranks up there with MercedesMoon Called(which I devoured that series as well) on the kick ass scale. Loved the fight scenes in the Daniels series
Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, #1) by Ilona Andrews Magic Burns (Kate Daniels, #2) by Ilona Andrews Magic Strikes (Kate Daniels, #3) by Ilona Andrews Magic Bleeds (Kate Daniels, #4) by Ilona Andrews


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

The latest werewolf story I have really enjoyed is Shiver/Linger.


message 16: by Julia (last edited Aug 03, 2010 08:14AM) (new)

Julia | 119 comments Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce with a great cover Sisters Red (Sisters Red, #1) by Jackson Pearce should definately be checked out! It's a very different take on the story we've read...

Also look for Sharp Teeth: A Novel by Toby Barlow. Also with an unusual cover, this is a novel written in blank verse, but not YA! Sharp Teeth A Novel by Toby Barlow


message 17: by Jax (new)

Jax (anti-cato) | 9 comments I second Lonley Werewolf Girl by MIllar and Sharp Teeth by Barlow

KOMET | 8 comments I'm always on the lookout for werewolf novels where FEMALE WEREWOLVES play a prominent part. That's why I'm such a fan of the Kitty Norville werewolf novels by Carrie Vaughn.

Here are some other werewolf novels I recently came across in which FEMALE WEREWOLVES rule!


1) Once Bitten by Trina M. Lee

2) Wolfbreed by S.A. Swann

3) Wolf's Cross by S.A. Swann

4) Strength of the Wolf by Jorrie Spencer

5) Curse of the Wolf Girl by Martin Millar

Curse of the Wolf Girl (Kalix MacRinnalch, #2) by Martin Millar

Douglas Brown (douglasbrown) | 6 comments In my book Tamed, the main character is a female werewolf. She is a firefighter who gets infected. The story is a unique take on werewolves as the creatures have been domesticated and sold as pets. Also, I saw a werewolf apocalypse book I thought I might check out the other day. I think it was called Bestial- werewolf apocalypse but I can't recommend it because I haven't read it yet.

I wrote a book called I AM WOLF that is about werewolves. I love wolves and the werewolf is such a cool creature. :) What are some werewolf books you have read because I'm looking for more as well. :D

I've heard of her series...it's next on my list. :D Thank you for reminding me. :D

KOMET | 8 comments I'm really keen on reading the upcoming novel Kitty Steals the Show by Carrie Vaughn, which is the latest installment in the Kitty Norville Saga.

For those Goodreads members not in the know, Kitty is a 20-something radio host who has a nighttime show on the paranormal with a national following --- and happens to be a werewolf.

Julia | 119 comments KOMET I agree with your endorsement of Kitty and the Midnight Hour -- that's the first book -- by Carrie Vaughn. But I'd edit your description to:

For those Goodreads members not in the know, Kitty is a 20-something (I think she's closer to or above 30, but that's a quibble) radio host who has a nighttime call-in show on the paranormal with a national following because she's an out werewolf.


message 26: by Renee (new)

Renee (elenarenee) | 42 comments I would also reccomend the Kitty books. She is a good read.

Hi Julia,

Thanks for the correction. To date, I've read most of the novels of the Kitty Norville Saga. Frankly, it's refreshing to have stories of the werewolf genre where a WOMAN WEREWOLF stands out by virtue of her grit, determination, and sheer nerve. (All too often, in werewolf novels these days, if there is a pairing between a woman [werewolf or no] and a male werewolf, the male werewolf is given far more weight. Women are little more than props for the male's pleasure and/or control.)

I'm always on the lookout for a werewolf novel where female werewolves come to the fore and are well-developed characters.

Kitty Raises Hell (Kitty Norville, #6) by Carrie Vaughn

S.J. Bell (LupLun) | 2 comments I will also second (third, fourth, whatever) the vote for Kitty Norville.

Also, if you're interested in werewolf fiction, I have this blog...
