When it comes to werewolf fandom the majority of the focus is on werewolf films and not on those poor werewolf novels. The books are often forgotten or are simply never read. It’s a shame. But being the bibliophile that I am, I want to know what your favorite werewolf books are. I know we have had posts like this in the past, but we are always getting new readers here at Werewolves.com and new books are constantly being published. So tell us – what is your favorite werewolf book? Or if you can’t pick just one, what are your favorite werewolf books? Share with your fellow werewolf lovers.
As for me, well, it’s not an easy pick. While I thoroughly enjoy werewolf tales, most of the werewolf books I have read aren’t 100% about werewolves. They are about an assortment of supernatural creatures and there just so happens to be werewolves in the mix. That’s why it’s difficult for me to pick a favorite werewolf book. I haven’t actually read too many amazing novels that focus solely on werewolves. I know I know, that’s awful of me seeing how I am the writer for this wondrous site. But of the werewolf-only books I have read, I haven’t come across any that I can put on my favorite werewolf list. Sad face.
One of my favorite series though is the Dark Hunters series by Sherrilyn Kenyon and some of her books focus on the werewolves in her universe. I LOVE her were-creature mythos! She created a fantastic backstory for her werewolves (and other weres). So I suppose the Dark Hunter books about these characters can go on my favorites list (there are over 20 Dark Hunter books and only a few focus on were-beings).
I am also insanely obsessed with the Cal Leandros series by Rob Thurman. But again, this series isn’t about werewolves. There are werewolves in the book, but they aren’t the driving force of the story. So really, I can’t count these books as werewolf books.
Hmm… this is hard. I will just leave this one to you. What is your favorite werewolf book?
