Were- (Jane Yellowrock #10.5) Reviews

  • Larisa

    One of those rare amazing anthologies that I read every single story, and enjoy them enough to reread a few of them.

  • Jeanny

    Only read 1 story in this anthology. Anzu, Diba, Beast by Faith Hunter. I rate it 3.5 stars. I'm not reading the anthology as a whole bc the only author I'm familiar with was the reason for the purchase.

  • Sharon

    Any anthology edited by Bray and Palmatier have become insta-buys for me. This is the third anthology from these two and, again, I was not disappointed. The first two anthologies are The Modern Fae's Guide to Surviving Humanity (sheep review) and After Hours: Tales from Ur-Bar (sheep review -Trivia: this was the very first review I did for I Smell Sheep). Were- was one I helped bring to life via the kick starter campaign. Bray and Palmatier manage to recruit some of the top authors in urban fant [...]

  • Jen

    I really enjoyed this collection. As always, some stories are better than others, but overall enjoyable.

  • Rebecca Baldwin

    I'm giving it 4 stars; as with most anthologies, some of the stories are 5s and some are 3s.

  • Marianne

    I purchased this anthology for the Jane Yellowrock novella and skipped the rest. For that reason, I don't feel comfortable rating the anthology as a whole. I give Jane's story a 3.5 rating. I much prefer the stories where Jane interacts with Bruiser- or the vamps. (Edmund or Leo in particular.) Though Leo plays a small part in this particular story I'm not much of an Anzu lover, sorry big bird!

    I really quite enjoyed this dip into the fantastical world of urban fantasy with a twist, I mean we've done werewolves to death and werecats and well Anita Blake has "done" most of the weres. This book celebrates the lesser thought of weres - rats, birds, the only were-whale in the world, and even a were-horse in a collection of funny, sad, and poignant tales. An enjoyable read for a rainy winter day, an easy escape from the usual sterotype of the alpha werewolf.

  • Michael Hanscom

    A quite enjoyable collection of stories about were-creatures beyond the old standard werewolf were all familiar with. From were-rats to were-sharks to were-grapevines (nope, not kidding there), the were-world is greatly expanded here. I got this through a Kickstarter campaign, and it was definitely worth the pledge.

  • Becky

    I bought this book mainly for the Faith Hunter story which was great as always, but you need to make sure you have read the series to really get all the nuances. I was disappointed in most of the other stories. Some of them are to short to even be called a short story.

  • Stephen Yturralde ii

    Great series of shorts many Weres! As with all anthologiesme stories are better than others but all are satisfying in their depictions of weres outside of the typical conventions. Ando stories of were-sharks!! Very fun read.

  • Kevin Lucia

    Entertaining and diverse. Full review coming soon on CDonline.

  • Erin Penn

    Normally I give anthologies four stars, because while one or two stories are standouts, usually I run into a couple clunkers as well. I loved all the stories in Were- - most of the stories created solid worldbuilding in a few short strokes. Avoiding the ubiquitous werewolf, Were- follows the dozens of other shifters of folklore and urban fantasy: weregoats, shape-shifting unicorns, young children-cubs, murders of were-crows, were-plants. Yep, were-plants and many more things which will make you [...]

  • Sarah

    Stories vary, as with any anthology, though for me it started off well and tended to get worse. Maybe reading it across one week I got were-d out.Obviously you know going in that these stories are of were-things, so that's no longer a twist. In some cases it was an immediate reveal as to were-what our protagonist was, in other cases that was the twist, or was actually not specified and left for the reader to work out. Oh, except that on the title page of each story was an illustration - in all b [...]

    Read 7/28/2017. 4 starsRead only Anzu, Duba, Beast by Faith Hunter. For those only interested in this story, it's about Jane and Gee. Gee finally calls Jane out for her promise of a hunt where she takes on the form of (view spoiler)[an Anzu (hide spoiler)]. Together they hunt a new, warped were-creature.Read time: ~30 minutes

  • Elentarri

    An entertaining and original collection of short stories involving a variety of were-creatures.

  • Emily

    I got this for the Hunter and McGuire stories, but was really enjoyed the others as well. Overall a well-written anthology and a fun read.

  • Danielle

  • L Bongiorno
