Ree is easily visible and identifiable: he runs up onto the porch, not the biggest wolf present but somehow clearly the dominant, even so, even to non-wolves. And he leaps up onto his hind legs, stretches up high enough to reach the porch roof, jab away at it and then jack-knife back down. All the slaves and servants are gathering, clothes and drinks and plates of food at hand, as wolves gradually shift and merge into wolf-kin humans, drag on clothes and laugh together and eat and drink, even after they’re no doubt savaged and swallowed down a rabbit or deer or two.

Not Ree, though.

What I’m reading – Shifting Shadows by Patricia Briggs

110357527_bfba70f5ae_z

Finished ‘Fairy Gifts’ in this collection of short stories – the story of Thomas (vampire) & Margaret (fae) from the Mercy Thompson universe (Moon Called et al). The story is a vast improvement on ‘Silver’, Thomas in particular nicely characterized and believable. The twist in the tale is not very unexpected, but this still makes a satisfying story. The historical element is also realistic and interesting, and without the annoying ‘mythic’ quality of Silver. (I didn’t like Silver!)

“He was a killer, a thing that preyed, living on the things that lived, unaided, alone, by virtue of his own strength and prowess, surviving triumphantly in a hostile environment where only the strong survive.”
