STORY - Nina Frame is an author who has recently been thrust into popularity by writing a bestseller. Fans assume that since she wrote a supernatural book, she obviously must have connections to werewolf packs and answers to all paranormal answers. Similar inquiries annoy Nina and cause her to be impatient with some of her fans. When one of her fans, who is actually a real werewolf, comes to Nina for help on curing a werewolf illness, Nina sets out to find answers and help her new friend.
The plot may sound incredibly juvenile and cheesy, but it isn't. It's definitely not a heart-pounding thriller, but it's a fun distraction in the mystery genre without adding any danger or chills. Does that mean people who only like action-packed stories won't like this one? Not necessarily. The plot maintains an interesting buildup until the climax. It's a short enough story that it never suffers from becoming monotonous.
WRITING STYLE - When I start a Kindle eBook download, I immediately start to look for typos; it's a bad habit of mine. I'm happy to say that I didn't see any typos throughout the story; however, that doesn't mean the writing is perfect. There were several areas in the book that were just awkwardly worded. Two or three times I had to reread a paragraph just because it was a tad bit confusing the way it was written. Nothing ever makes the story too difficult to read, though.
Characterization could have been a bit better, too. It was a short download, and that makes it difficult to fully bring out personalities in characters, but I didn't necessarily like all of the personalities I did see. Nina comes across as a bit of a jerk, even though it's somewhat understandable that she's irritable after dealing with the silliness of some of her fans. I still would have liked to have more of a positive connection with her and other characters.
I've pointed out a few flaws in the writing style, but I don't want to give the impression that the author is a bad writer. Absolutely not! Ms. Metz has excellent word choices throughout the story. She also perfectly introduces the setting at the beginning of the download and continues to describe the following scenes extremely well.
OVERALL - To Cure a Werewolf: A Nina Frame Story is really a wonderful little feel-good mystery that should be enjoyed by most readers. It's not perfect, but it's not even close to being classified as sloppy or bad. At the time of this review, it's priced at almost three dollars which is a bit steep for such a short story, but if you can get it a bit cheaper I would highly recommend trying it out.
