The problem with this book is not the sex description but everything else. This book lacks a good plot that you want to keep with to the very end.

The characters Alfie, Irism Iris' ex-husband, etc. could have been done much better. You don't really feel anything for the characters before there is no real detail into their past or feelings or anything in that manner. I'm not asking for characters that cry but put something in to the essence of the book.

It was like the author decided just to write an erotica book but forgot to put an actually plot in it.

I can sum of the plot in on sentence. There was a prophecy in which Iris believes she has to kill 11 werewolves involved in the Silver Crown organization. Alfie is a her werewolve boyfriend.

And don't read the books out of sequence, it is not hard to catch up but it is painful to have to deal with this author's writing regardless.

This week in Inside the List of the New York Times Book section, this book was mentioned. I couldn't resist looking it up--a book that an inmate sued so that he was allowed to read it? Sounds interesting! Below is what they had in the NYT about it...

The Ballad of Jail Reading: In next week's issue, Lauren Groff will review Peter Orner's new story collection, "Last Car Over the Sagamore Bridge." Orner has never hit the best-seller list, despite critical acclaim, but he did have a recent brush with the wilder side of popular fiction -- as the expert witness in a lawsuit involving a California prisoner's right to read werewolf erotica. (The plaintiff, an inmate at Pelican Bay State Prison, successfully appealed after his copy of Mathilde Madden's "Silver Crown" was confiscated.)

"At stake in the case was the very tricky and very subjective issue of literary value," Orner told me via e-mail. "As a fiction writer, you can't really say no when someone asks you to read some werewolf erotica, especially for a good cause. And I'd say the right to read, wherever you are, is a pretty good cause." Orner ended up "tearing through" the book, he said. "I tend to be a very slow reader. I read `The Silver Crown' fast -- the prose really moves, let's say. I wish I had as much action in my own books."

Orner studied law, and has worked in prisons both in a legal capacity and as a writing teacher. He's sympathetic, he told me, to their challenges. But he would tend to allow most books. "Correctional officers have to enforce discipline in an incredibly tough environment," he said. "Pelican Bay is one of the most violent prisons in California. . . . They've got some extraordinarily serious problems. My humble thought, speaking as a writer, is that an inmate reading a book about werewolves having sex is the least of their problems."
