This is an intoxicating and wonderful story of a young girl going to college and finding herself falling for the beautiful women she finds there. Ms. Moon's prose is amazing, it flows like poetry and is very evocative as it runs across the page. It was a true pleasure to read and I would highly recommend it for anyone. The sexual overtones (and flat out sex) are very well done, adding a lovely spice to the plot. The characters have lovely depth, at least for some of them. There were a few things that I didn't care for. One is the lack of "good" males in the story with long term viability. It felt like they were being trashed a bit too much for my tastes; something not out of place in a story about "lesbian werewolves" but still... it would be nice to have a bit more balance. Now, part of that is in plot, there are some rather anti-male characters in there. There are certain parts of the story that were a bit too pat: mainly the beginning. She fell in with lesbians rather quickly just as all the males were portrayed as purely "bad" instead of having more shades of gray. Likewise, I didn't understand the final conclusion of the story. I don't know why the main character made that choice. However, none of those ruined the story at all. I've read it three times now, so I have to put it solidly in the five star rating.

I did not enjoy reading this book. I consider myself a feminist, and generally like queer fantasy stories, but this one so departed from any strand of werewolf mythology, and wrapped it up instead in an argument for lesbian polygamy, that finished the book feeling a little dirty. The most prominent departure was in how new werewolves were made. Instead of a bight or scratch, all it took was drinking from a puddle that a ww had stepped in on a full moon. Talk about passive procreation. Oh well, to each there own.

This needed a good editor Lunatic Fringe is a werewolf story that almost gets lost in a long discussion of feminist politics and too many typographical mistakes. The basic story in this book is good, although a little confusing. The characters draw a difference between Weres and Werewolves, but they seem to turn out to be the same people. Once the story gets going however, things make more sense and the details are easier to follow. It makes it clear that the line between the "good guys" and the "bad guys" can be very thin. Lexie is a perplexing character, but that reflects the situation she finds herself in as she tries to determine exactly what her future is going to be. Some of the characters are well developed, but there are a number of holes that needed filling with details. The book has an open ended conclusion because it's meant to be a series, but that isn't very satisfying for a reader, especially one who decides not to read any further books. The book has two big drawbacks. There are too many mistakes. Words are missing, some are used incorrectly and others use archaic definitions that don't really fit current usage. More than once a paragraph had to be reread to try and figure out exactly what was being said. This happens enough that it detracts from the reading and gives the book an unfinished feeling. An good editor also would have cut out a lot of material. When the Pack first appears, a long diatribe begins about how women have been oppressed and men are the sole source of their problems. The book gets bogged down in long political discussions that obscure the plot. Although some of the ideas eventually become important to the characters, they go on for so long that some readers may be inclined to stop reading. If you have to tell the reader something six times, then you aren't being very clear. It doesn't help much when the Pack turns out to be composed of some of the most hypocritical characters in the book and, apparently, is only interested in killing male werewolves. The idea that men are the source of all problems wears thin, especially in light of the behavior of the Pack. There are holes in the story that a decent editor would have eliminated or made sure were filled in. Allison Moon needs to make a decision. Either write a political book to discuss her type of feminism or write fiction with just enough polemic to shade her characters, but not interfere with the story. If she can find an editor to help with her weaknesses, Lunatic Fringe might turn out to be a mediocre start to a promising series.
