Bloodling Wolf by Aimee Easterling

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Finished this short story a few weeks ago,  and I’m still thinking about all the great potential for a full length book. Aimee Easterling’s  world building was very interesting, with a “bloodling” being a type of werewolf I’ve not run across before. Bloodlings are rare shifters who are born in animal form and can’t shift into human form until they become teenagers. The central character here, Wolfie, doesn’t really want to become two-footed even then, if he can avoid it. This causes a lot of trouble for him within his pack, as you might imagine. Seeing life from his wolf’s perspective is a nice twist.

I thought the author did an excellent job of building strong characters in a short span of time, and I really enjoyed Wolfie’s struggles. It’s always interesting to see the world through the eyes of someone not exactly part of it in the same way we are, be it aliens, children, or bloodlings.  My only complaint was that it was over too soon, as is the nature of short stories, and I wanted more. 

Can’t wait to see where the tale goes from here. We are all set up for every kind of adventure ahead, and I’m pretty sure a full-length book is in the making. Kudos to Aimee Easterling for a job well done.

Do you have books that just call you back for another visit, long after you read them the first time? I do. Classics going back to Jane Eyre & Wuthering Heights, up through Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, and into many newer books, including a lot of recent Urban Fantasy. While looking for something to read at the hospital, as I waited long hours in my mother’s room, I decided Read more…

Finally! Found a few minutes to finish this book. All I can say is, wow! Maybe I’ll say it twice. Wow. Louder this time. WOW! Are you getting my drift, here? I loved this book! It had everything I wanted in it, and then some.

I’ve been a fan of the Kate Daniel’s series for some time, and an even bigger fan of Read more…
