I was one of the ones left behind when the virus hit. A blind woman, trapped in my isolated subterranean prison. Now there are three of us -- me and my saviors, Derek and Jay, the two young wolfmen who rescued me.

Attacked by vicious rabids, Derek's life hangs in the balance. Jay fears our rescuers have ulterior motives. Why else would they offer to help? It's not like we have a choice, not with Derek's life at stake. Meeting a compound full of lonely women adds a whole new set of problems. And then there's Frank. He just can't leave well enough alone. And if he's not careful, my boys are going to rip him to pieces.

Rabbit sushi, yuck. Maybe wolfmen don’t mind eating raw meat but Mei Lin wants her meat cooked. Pretty (Mei Lin) came to life in the first book of the Wolfman Tale when she met Derek and Jay; two young wolfmen who came across her den and claimed both the den and her. In book two, Blind Devotion Derek would have died if not for Mace, his pack, and Daniel, who finds them and transport the three to the human compound so that Dr. Baker can sew Derek up.

Since both the Wolfman Series and the Wolfman Tale series are intertwined I recommend reading the books in order of publication before you read this one. Many of the characters are introduced in them and will give the reader a better understanding of the virus that changed the world we know. It will also cut down any confusion that you may run into with the plot if you skip a book. If you don’t want to invest in both series then I would urge the buyer to at least get Blind Passion to read first to bring them up to date on Derek, Jay and Mei Lin.

In Blind Devotion the plot picks up after Derek and Jay go hunting for fresh meat and were attacked by rabid wolfmen. As in the other four books Ms. Black used her wise crack punch lines and crazy Imagination to bring the characters and their personalities to the forefront while creating an entertaining and unique tale of werewolf’s are wolfmen as she calls them since they do not shift like the legendary werewolf.

I found the story to be a truly thrilling journey in the world of "what if"; what if a virus mutated the human body and changed the world we know. Despite a few editing bumps, the two series are very entertaining and I look forward to reading the next book.

I highly recommend the series to anyone who enjoys a new twist to the werewolf theory and loves an author who has a slightly warped sense of humor that comes out in her characters.
