Un fel de complot ciudat, dar cu adevărat interesant și destul de bine scris
I'm not too sure what to think of the book. I felt like I was just reading another Soldier's story which is exactly what it is, a Soldier's memoir. FYI - this is the story of one infantry Soldier's experience in Fallujah. If you don't want to know gory details, this is not for you. There were times I squirmed and gaped. I do know that I could not have done what he did in Fallujah. It was a quick read and detailed read.
The author states that this is her first book published under her real name, and that her father, Robert Sheckley, wrote science fiction. Her penname is Alisa Kwitney. Her Kwitney books are recommended by author Neil Gaiman, and critic/author Carolyn See, which is why I bought it. The book has good bones. Still, I don't read bodice rippers, and it does have a lot of those characteristics. Also, the character is always menstruating! Makes sense, in a book about shapeshifting lovers who become wolves and have a heightened sense of smell and are into hunting, I guess. Sheckley frequently has her tongue tentatively poked toward her cheek, which made the sex tolerable to me (not into steamy, thanks).
