A Very Fun Read

I had a great time reading MaryJanice Davidson's 'Dead and Loving It'. Although it seems like they were too short(I kept muttering 'That's IT?' when the stories were done), but they were cute thumbnail sketches of the wacky and fascinating lives of vampires, werewolves and fairies...more fairy stories, MaryJanice! I loved the intersection of the Wyndham wolves with Queen Betsy, and it cracked me up to see the disbeleif that they could have in not recognizing otherworlders as real.

I agree with the other reviewer who said not to read all four of the short stories in DEAD AND LOVING IT all at once. Read back-to-back, although a quick read, the stories are all extremely similar--there are even phrases in the stories that have been used, word for word, in the one that came before it. That said, all four stories deal in some way with werewolves, specifically ones from the Wyndham clan. The stories are short, sexy, and to the point. Although I enjoyed the premise of all of them, the use of the 'c' word to describe the female anatomy irked me, so much so that I had to, at times, set the book aside. However, SANTA CLAWS, MONSTER LOVE, THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A WEREWOLF, and A FIEND IN NEED are all fast-paced stories that die-hard fans of MJD will enjoy. Overall, not a bad book, although the typographical errors and the repetitive phrases (even some entire scenes appeared recycled from the previous short story) keep it from being a true winner.

    Disgusting

    Nothing in this book was romantic. Nothing is romantic about a woman being forced against her to stay in a room with a man and then then be forced to partake in activitys. And then the woman falls for her attacker. That is not only disgusting its stupid. No woman is going to love a man who forces her to do anything against her will. And the author of this book should have more respect for women considering she is one. Any intelligent woman who has half a brain or more will see this book does nothing but degrade women, and make us seem like toys for men. In todays world woman should be empowering each other not writing about a woman whose rights have been violated. This book is a waste of paper and money. And if any thought was put into in this book, then that was wasted to.

    Alder and Echo's Biographies

    Alder <p>
    Name :: ^~^ I refuse to answer that. <br>
    Age :: Approximately 20-some moons. <br>
    Gender :: &male <br>
    Species :: Lynx-regular cat hybrid. <br>
    Appearance <br>
    Pelt :: His fur is a dark, dismal russet. Like a flame about to go out. There are several stripes of black encircling his flanks, like the age-marking rings in the center of a tree. The mere mass of his pelt is quite impressive, him having very fluffy and thick fur. Each individual tuft is a collage of colors. At the roots, it is a deep burgundy. It gradually lightens until, at the tips, it is only a faint ecru-pink. <br>
    Eyes :: Alder's eyes are a striking azure, with elliptic flecks of copper and emerald throughout the irises. They are an impressive sight, what with their immense luminescense. <br>
    Stature :: Not necessarily muscular, he isn't very small, either. More of the happy medium; in-between. <br>
    Other :: His paws, underbelly, and muzzle are a stark white, along with a tawny lock of fur on his chest. <p>
    Persona :: Ehhh. Find out yerself. <br>
    Se<_>xual Preferences :: Is straight. <p>
    Echo <p>
    Name :: .-. I ain't gonna. <br>
    Age :: Mid-teens. [In moons, of course.] <br>
    Gender :: &male <br>
    Species :: Simply a cat. <br>
    Appearance <br>
    Pelt :: Echo's pelt is a pure, ominous black, bespeckled with white. The effect gives the reminicense of a starry night sky. <br>
    Eyes :: His eyes are a cool amber, akin to liquid-pools of ambrosia. They're very calming and captivating. <br>
    Stature :: Very svelte, he's frankly small and scrawny. <br>
    Other :: He has many lupine features. His muzzle is elongated, really more of a snout. His pupils are narrow as well, not quite like a snake's, but close. <p>
    Persona :: Generally quiet, but somewhat creepy. <br>
    Se<_>xual Orientation :: Is bise<_>xual.

    Abduction + Rape = True love?!?

    The monster love short story really sincerely pissed me off. This man abducts her, rapes her by both the victims and rapists admissions, and then they fall madly in love! Its disgusting. I've always loved the author, but this story means I'll never buy another book of hers. Inside the book Janet tells the guy "You raped me!" To which he replies "Yes I did.....at first." Then she blushes!! Truly and completely revolting, not to mention partaking in the rapecentric culture that is destroying our world and kicking victims when they're already down. Don't buy this book.
