By These Ten Bones Review

I was recently craving a werewolf story that took place in medieval times(I know pretty specific), so after a little searching online I found Clare B. Dunkle’s book By These Ten Bones. I feel conflicted about this book because I liked it, but I had one huge problem with it. Before I get to the one problem I want to talk about what I did like. First, and foremost, it scratched that itch I had for a medieval werewolf story, which in a book world over saturated with urban and/or erotic werewolf stories is hard to do. Secondly, I enjoyed the relationship between Maddie and Paul/Carver, specifically the fact that (spoiler alert) it ends happy! Sometimes you just need a good ending where everything turns out well for the characters and this book gives you that.

Now, my one problem is that I am annoyed that they called Paul a werewolf. In my eyes, if they don’t turn into a wolf or some type of wolf-man hybrid then it’s not an actual werewolf. And Paul only changed into some type of shadow monster that hissed and gurgled which is not a wolf FYI. So, in my opinion, it’d be more accurate to call him a shapeshifter. But even though the werewolf wasn’t really a werewolf I could still enjoy the story so I’d give it a 6 out of 10.

Werewolf by Night Review

As a lover of werewolves and all things supernatural, I was very excited for Werewolf by Night. And let me just say I was not disappointed. I was a little worried a first because I’m not the biggest fan of black-and-white movies but it fit really well with the whole feel of the movie. I’ve seen a lot of people saying that it has that classic monster movie feel and I totally agree. While I really enjoyed the action, my favorite part was Jack and Ted’s relationship!! They were the cutest best friends ever, and I can not wait to see more of them together.

Now, sadly for my 2 complaints. Number 1… I wish it was longer!!!! That’s not really a complaint I just really wish that I had more because it was a super fun movie. But now time for my real complaint, the werewolf. First, I feel like I need to explain that I’m very picky with what my favorite type of werewolf looks like so that’s why I had a small problem with Werewolf by Night. Basically, I like my werewolves to be more wolfie, you know…longer snout, tail, the works. So, I’m not a huge fan of the more hairy human werewolf but I usually learn to love it when the characters and story are good enough. Which this one is! So, all in all I give Werewolf by Night a solid 9 out of 10 and I can’t wait to see where else the supernatural side of the MCU is going!
