This or That is a new meme hosted at Radiant Shadows.
Every Thursday she’ll post two books with similar characters/covers/etc and you choose which one you feel is better.
Q: Which wolf mythology do you prefer? The one where the transformation is seen as a curse or the one where the transformation is a synchronization of two forms working together seamlessly?
Ooh, I like this one! Awesome question!
Unfortunately, I don’t read many werewolf novels. However, I think I enjoy the curse angle way better. It has a true mythological feel to me, something akin to the Brothers Grimm or Old World folklore. Monsters were monsters, not sympathetic, misunderstood creatures.
That said, my boyfriend & I are HUGE fans of Grimm and one of the characters is a werewolf and he’s just fantastic. :)
