The world fell apart after a virus killed billions, and turned most male survivors into violent wolfmen. Five of us, my family, found refuge in an abandoned bomb shelter. Over the last three years I've lost them all. Now I'm trapped here. Alone.
Food stores running low, I resolved I would not die down here in the stark silence of my burrow. I know there are dangers outside: wild animals, fatal injuries, and worst of all, the beasts that had once been men. Wild, feral creatures infected with a virus that turns normal men into half animal beasts.
But I needed to feel the sun on my face, hear the whispers of the wind as it caresses my skin. To smell the earth, the flowers, the freshness after it rains. To know life goes on outside my isolated tomb. It was worth the risk of a horrid death for even one hour of such ecstasy.
I never imagined coming face to face with two young beasts. They want my burrow -- and me. And they aren't planning to take no for an answer. It would seem my loneliness has ended. At least until they realize what a burden I will be. In a world where only the strongest survive, I'm excess baggage. Unless I can convince them otherwise.
"Is it worth it? Just surviving?"
I have followed Ms. Black's Wolfman series from the start, simply because I love her writing style and her imagination. Even though we know wolfmen do not exist in our world I still love how the author uses a virus to transform normal men into beast in a post apocalypse world. Blind Passion: A Wolfman Tale is the third book I have read in this series and think the theme is still entertaining and unique.
The male characters, Derek and Jay, were so loveable and you cannot help but laugh when the two wolfmen had to remind themselves that the human female Mei was fragile and that care had to be taken to insure they did not hurt her or tear her clothes. It was a big turn-on to read the scene of the two wolfmen kissing and fooling around with each other as well as with Mei. I did latch on to one sentence while reading and thought that there are many women and men who would agree with the statement. “It might kill me keeping up…but death by orgasm sounded fine by me.”
Ms. Black does an amazing job of introducing new and creative elements to this series, a series that I would recommend to anyone that loves wolfmen and their wild adventures. I was surprised by some of the twists in the story line and fell in love with the characters as the tale unfolded. For a short read, you will find the details and plot well thought out and written. I did enjoy the author's witty sentences; one that had me laughing was “a starving man at an all-you-can-eat buffet.”
Blind Passion is a stand-alone story that is guaranteed to keep you grinning from ear-to-ear.
