Meat might indeed be murder, but for a wolf, what choice is there? So thinks the blood-hating Jackson until he encounters a rather curious bear, one who introduces him to an equally odd assortment of vegetarian forest hunters, the most intriguing another wolf such as himself—in more ways than one. Love brings the two together, but can it save them from a sinister plot that is hatched by an animal that is not what it appears to be?

Blood makes him puke. Nice premise for a werewolf story.

I like the Torquere Sip books. Short stories in nice tight packages and great for an afternoon pick-me-up. This one by Rob Rosen, is a good addition to this collection. A werewolf who doesn’t like blood or kills. Nice. Fresh. Different. I liked it. In the world of shifters, this one was a breath of fresh air.

Jackson is a sweet guy, who happens to have fur. He’s not keen on eating meat. I liked his daring to be different. I also liked the twists and turns the author put into the story. I was kept guessing and this was definitely worth reading to the end.

The one thing that really took away from the story for me were the independent body parts. The author’s style is to use terminology like ‘he removed his tongue’. Stuff like that took me out of the story because immediately I got the mental image of his tongue falling out. It’s not what the author intended but I couldn’t get the image out of my head.

That minor quirk aside, this is an entertaining short story and well worth the read.
