Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lowe's characters strike an empathic chord... At the conclusion of Wolves Dressed as Men, I found myself wanting more." - John JAM Miller
--Liquid Imagination

From the Inside Flap

"A grim and gritty urban fable with echoes of classic tradition. Lowe knows what makes a great werewolf tale." - DAVID DUNWOODY, author of Empire

"Lowe takes the tense action and brutal violence of quality werewolf fiction, then adds characters the reader will grow to love and hate in equal measure. He strips back the outer flesh and fur of a lycanthrope and delves deep into his protagonist's inner pain, giving the reader a close-up view of the turmoil within the beast and the struggle inside the man. With both horror and humor, and an ending as powerful as it is satisfying, Lowe's novella debut will create many new fans." - KEVIN WALLIS, author of Beneath the Surface of Things

More About the Author

Steve Lowe is a false prophet, a superstition, a bastard from a basket. They should have put him in a jar on the mantelpiece.

I really can't write my usual review with this incredible story as I would give way too much away, but ... Thiess wakes up and finds himself covered in the blood of his victims and the taste of their flesh in his mouth. He cannot remember who he was or why he has this monster inside him. He searches for salvation, but God doesn't seem to be listening. He knows that he is being hunted; the Hunter will not stop until he is dead. Thiess finds some happiness in Maria's arms, but will that be enough to save him.

I really, really liked this book. Steve Lowe gives you an excellent werewolf story where those who are cursed have no control over the monster living inside of them. With every page I turned I seemed to say "Wow!". The ending will blow you away! I will definite keep an eye out for his next book.

Mercy - it is a word that many people hope will be shown to them in their time of need, but what does mercy truly mean? Snuffing out one life for the sake of many other lives, or is the risk of saving that one life merciful enough?

The Tracker understands his form of mercy. Handed down through generations his task has been sent down from God to save the world from the demons of the Devil himself. He will destroy every last one of them and anyone who stands in the way.

Theiss is in need of true mercy. His life has been stripped from him, right down to his very being. He can not recall even his own name. All there is - is right now - and the urges that come in the night. Momentary eases in the anger and pain come in the beautiful form of Maria, a woman who sees the turmoil behind his eyes and resting in his soul.

Jocoby is a journalist who has seen his better days, reduced to writing drivel in a common tabloid. Stumbling across the story that could make his career with this company, he discovers that the unbelievable is happening. The werewolf exists; the werewolf lives. A real story is here, not a manufactured one waiting on the presses. Jacoby starts out to catch the truth, and ends up with more than he can claw his way through.

Although quite short, this book gives plenty of bang for the buck. There is no time in its pages for a lull in the action. Everything is there that is needed, no extra garbage added in to give the author the feel of a "full" novel. This has everything one one quaint, convenient package. The cover is brilliant. The tracker is depicted on the front, outlined and see-though. To me this represents his personality and his purpose perfectly. Noticeable - but without true substance.

Steve Lowe is an amazing author who weaves an incredible tale. I've yet to read any of his works that haven't blown me away.
Wolves Dressed as Men is a change of pace from the typical PNR. Theiss is not a Chippendales model with a chip on his shoulder, and Maria is not a delicate flower with boundless love that can change the world. This novel is gritty, dark, and packed with all the goods you'd expect in a full length book.
My only complaint is the same I have for all of Lowe's stories, and that is "MORE, DAMMIT, I WANT MORE!"

Format: Paperback
Maria is interested in a mysterious co-worker named Thiess but Thiess is the bearer of a dark secret: he's a werewolf! Will Thiess share his secret with Maria before the mysterious Tracker guns him down?

Remember the good old days before sparkly vampires and baby-lovin' werewolves, when monster tales were more than excuses for some smut? Wolves Dressed is Men is a throwback to those glorious days.

Wolves Dressed as Men is a slim, 60 page volume but Steve Lowe crams it to the brim with lycanthropic goodness. It's like a Ramones song. It's really short but still the perfect length. You get werewolves, action, intrigue, a touch of romance, and a nosy reporter trying to tie it all together.

I can't say much more than I already have without spoiling things. If you think you can find a better sixty page werewolf novella, be my guest. I'll stick with this one.

Format: Kindle Edition
So I'm looking around for reviews of this book and I come across its record on the Eternal Press website. The first thing I notice is a warning along the side of the page:

"Due to sexual content, access to some titles may be restricted if you are under 18 years of age or not logged in."

And I'm like, "Steve Lowe wrote a sexy book?!"

Baffled, I continued through the site, some of which I wasn't granted access to because it's considered too sexy for my eyes. And, I'll admit, I was intrigued. I looked at the cover image again and wasn't immediately turned on, but I saw some potential. The cover features the silhouette of a guy in a trench coat, and it could have been about a serial flasher with a heart of gold. That's kinda sexy, right? And a wolf could be some sort of sexual term I'm not aware of, couldn't it?

So I decided to read the book, on account of my strong desire to be sexually aroused by a flasher. You can imagine my dismay when, upon completion, I realized that it was hardly sexy at all. There's a lady who is supposed to be a hot number, but the focus isn't on her and the flasher. In fact, there isn't even a flasher. I was livid.

And I went back to the publisher website to file a complaint. My browser stored Lowe's book listing from my previous visit, so I immediately went there. As I looked fervently for a "complaint" button I could click, something else caught my eye. Right there, under the price, genre, sub-genre, and wordcount, in plain view, it says:

"Heat rating: 2"

Please tell me, Eternal Press, what about this book gives it a score of 2? Let me clue you in, dear readers, this is not a 2 in the real world. This is a firm Indiana 2. To those people, everything is worse than it is.
