*I actually rated this book 4.5 stars but when leaving reviews on sites such as Amazon, Goodreads, ets...I always round up to the next whole star!*
I fell face first in love with Shanley's LOVE IN THE TIME OF THE DEAD simply because 1. It's about zombies. And 2. She is a fabulous author. I love the trip she took us on in that one and the characters she introduced us to. That is definitely one book I will always look back on as one of my more favorite ones.
And that leads us to SLIP THE SKIN. When Shanley asked if I wanted to read her little novella about Lycan's, I figured what the heck. And completely glad I did. It was a quick read and a fun one too. I am rating it 4.5 stars simply because some parts seemed too rushed. Yes, I know it is a novella, but you don't take becoming a werewolf like it is everyday conversation. "Oh I am a were? Good to know." To me that was just too rushed and I would have liked a little bit more of a freak out.
Other than that, the story was great. I really wish it would have been a longer story. I could definitely see more story wanting to come out. Like these characters had more to give. But all in all, I really enjoyed it and thought that Shanley's writing was spot on. Great writing, great story telling, great characters. Like I have said before in my review of LOVE IN THE TIME OF THE DEAD, I will absolutely be looking forward to more of Shanley's work.
