Let me clarify, I do not have a problem w/ werewolves….
I have a problem w/ werewolf books…
Are you following me?
Now my issues w/ books about werewolves are quite simple….
They’re not badass enough!
AND I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY!
It’s like no one, knows how to write a decent werewolf book!
I just don’t get it….
I mean werewolves have so much potential, to be the, BADDEST SUPERNATURAL CREATURE OUT THERE!
, but they are always portrayed, as a lesser to vamps!
We have countless of vampire books, about vamps ripping apart bodies and draining them of blood, but when It comes to werewolves we get, “A body was found in the woods, the cause of death was a fatal bite from a rabid animal”….
BODIES SHOULD BE TORN APART!
They have these massive teeth
And you’re telling me, THAT DOGGY DOESN’T WANT A BONE?
When it comes to werewolves, a body shouldn’t be found!
THEY ARE HUMANS THAT BECOME BEASTS AT THE FULL MOON!
THEY ARE NO LONGER HUMAN…
THEY ARE BEASTS…
And they should behave as such.
This brings me to another thing that annoys me about werewolf books….
They think and react to things as if they’re still humans
Though they do have rank like Alphas and Betas….
THEY NEVER ACT LIKE IT MATTERS!
You’re told, to never look a wild animal in the eyes.
Because, it’s considered a challenge!
So tell me why…
Why are these “werewolves”, that are lower ranking members of the pack, looking their alpha in the eye?
Personally, from experience, I know that when I look my dog in the eyes, he quickly averts his elsewhere….
Because it’s a sign of RESPECT!
When a dog is intimated by a more DOMINATE animal, they wave their tail in retreat and roll over on their backs and show you their tummy…
“But why do they show you their tummy, Book Obsessed Loser?”
Because it’s the most vulnerable place on the body!
They show it, as a way of saying, they’re not a threat and that they mean no harm…
Basically what I’m saying is,
I just want my werewolves to be more animalistic.
These werewolves need to step up their game, and stop acting like little puppies baying at the moon and nipping at each other heels!
They should be stronger and more vicious than vamps! Vamps are humans with extra abilities while werewolves are magic
And they need to start acting like it!
[There are good werewolf books out there, it just that most of the ones I read were not…. Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, is a great series to read if you want some werewolf action. It does have other sups but it is center primarily around weres.
And one more thing… if you know of a good werewolf book out there, don’t be afraid to leave me a comment or message me on Goodreads!]
