By Barks Book Nonsense TOP 1000 REVIEWER on May 16, 2007
Format: Paperback
After reading the first chapter of Wolf Tales I it's easy to understand the mixed reactions. This is one weird book!

After Alexandria walks in on her fiance buck naked with another woman -- in their bed no less -- she decides to hop in her car and escape for awhile. As luck would have it, she ends up getting run off the road while caught in a blizzard. She begins to walk in the hopes of finding some shelter but gets all turned around and lost in the blinding snow. She succumbs to the cold and collapses in a heap giving up all hope of rescue. When she awakens she feels an intense heat emanating from the male form laying naked beside her now naked body. What? Where'd he come from? Overcome by lust and gratitude, she allows him to do as he wishes with her body. Never seeing his face. Yes, Never Seeing His Face. She then passes out from exhaustion. Life is so tough some days.

Thus begins Stefan (the naked, faceless man) and Xandria's love affair. From the moment they touch they're connected and Xandria finds herself overwhelmingly attracted to him despite the fact that he's, eh, covered in gray downy fur, has a "muzzle" and a beastly protrusion where a man-part is supposed to be located (I'm thinking this is where the other reviewers went "ick!!"). It's weird, oh yes it is, but so vividly written that you just can't turn away even though your brain is screaming "this is so not right, stop reading, STOP READING NOW!".

I'm sad to say this book went downhill at the midway point. A little more plot would've gone a long way here. One sex scene after another gets excruciatingly dull when there's no plot to get in the way. I ended up bored and skimmed my way to the end so I could it pass it along to the next victim.

After reading the many and diametrically diverse reviews of this book, I just purchased it. I must say, it turned out better than I thought it might. In fact, the wolf-human-hybrid 'triangle' was cool. It is a new twist on some old taboos. I didn't think the characters were the most grabbing for me, emotionally, that I've ever read about, but I did enjoy their situation and resolutions. I liked them. Very satisfactory all the way around. And the sex was very good. Remember, although caution, safe sex, etc., are all very well and necessary in the real world, in our fantasies, all bets are off. Now that my appetite is whetted, will probably try the other Wolf Tales books. Hope they stretch the envelop a bit more. Stretching the envelope is good exercise!

Format: Paperback
Sliding off the road in the middle of a snow storm, Alexandria "Xandi" Olanet's plan to get her life in order is not going well. After catching her fiance with another woman, Xandi took some time off to find herself. Now Xandi simply needs to find her way back to the highway... uphill in a blizzard! Having blacked out before finding help, Xandi finally wakes to find herself unexpectedly bathed in warmth. The mind blowing sex with an unknown man that follows is overwhelming. It is unlike anything Xandi has ever experienced!

Xandi's new lover and savior is Stefan Aragat, the famous magician. He is also a werewolf trapped between forms as part man and part wolf. Unable to fully become a human, Stefan believes he is cursed by his own hubris and has given up hope. This powerful new connection with Xandi encourages him to seek forgiveness from his former master. He hopes that werewolf wizard Anton Chavel can reverse the curse.

Although Stefan wants Xandi's company, he is unsure how to explain the attraction he shares with his mentor. His worst fears are realized at their first meeting when Xandi sees him being dominated by Anton. Stefan fears he has lost her, but their bond proves strong enough to handle this new dimension. Xandi's love helps Stefan see that hope is not lost. Maybe there really is no curse. Maybe there is a place for Anton in both their lives. Maybe this is a new beginning for all of them.

Ms. Douglas' Wolf Tales, a collection of four connected stories, is a unique and intense werewolf story that sends the reader into a sensual world. I especially liked the way Ms. Douglas' werewolves are unique from werewolves of myth. The early scenes with Xandi and Stefan are hot enough to cause a heat wave in a blizzard.

STORY BRIEF:
Xandi is driving in a snowstorm. A truck runs her off the road. She gets lost walking in the blizzard and passes out. She wakes to find herself with a strange man. She accompanies Stefan on a trip to find Anton, the magician who turned him into part wolf. Stefan learns how to shift between human and wolf form, as does Anton. They want Xandi to stay with them. Later Anton discovers Keisha who had been brutally raped. He invites her to stay with them.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
I suggest the first sex scene be nominated for some kind of award. It surprised me. It was hot, intoxicating and sensual. After being lost in the snow, Xandi wakes up in a warm bed in the dark next to a strange naked body. The next day was the first conversation between Xandi and this man. The scene of the conversation was mesmerizing. The story was different, nothing run-of-the-mill about this. Although I should mention that this group of characters seem to spend most of their time running through the forest and having a lot of sex. Apparently the two men were wealthy enough to support them all without anyone needing to have a job. The author doesn't go into that. But it's not necessary because the purpose of the book is for the erotic, not the mundane activities of life. The second half wasn't as good as the first half, but it was still ok. Be forewarned, some readers will not like the following. There are gay sex scenes, men with men and women with women. The characters are not monogamous. There are group sex scenes, rear door activity, mild bondage, spanking, rape and murder - all of it explicit and graphic.

THE SERIES:
Wolf Tales was originally written as an online serial, with a new story coming out every six weeks through Changeling Press.
