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

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!"

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, <strong>Wolves Dressed As Men</strong> (Eternal Press, 2010)

Dear Stephenie Meyer, Maggie Stiefvater, Jessica Coulter Smith, and, well, everyone back to, and maybe including, Whitley Streiber: this is how you write a werewolf novel. Or, given its length, the outline of one. But seriously, Steve Lowe just kicked all your butts around the room in a steel cage match, and you probably didn't even notice.

Plot: there's a werewolf. He's not too happy with being a werewolf. (Okay, the rest of you lot got that part down.) There is also a Tracker, who's trying to kill the werewolf. (Most of you got that bit, too.) But this werewolf, who goes by the name of Thiess, is confused enough with his werewolf self that he's not acting like a regular werewolf, at least "regular" as defined by the tracker. Thiess lives in the big city, trying to blend in. He's infatuated with Maria, a co-worker (when was the last time one of your werewolves had, you know, a job?), and she's kind of drawn to him, too. Every day after work, he goes to St. Stanislaus, a local church, and begs God for forgiveness for the crimes he commits in wolf form, begs God to lift this affliction from him. You know how well that's going to work. But the longer Thiess is afflicted, the more of his humanity he loses. As a bonus hidden track, there's also a serial arsonist at work in the ghetto where Thiess lives, and he's becoming more and more active as Thiess gets worse. The cops are looking for Thiess, of course, and the arsonist as well in their spare time, but the guy who actually has a chance of finding him is a reporter, once an embedded war correspondent in Afghanistan, now reduced to writing trash articles for a local tabloid.

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.

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.
