Wild werewolves (in verse)

Sharp Teeth: A Novel - Toby Barlow

I'm not much of an urban fantasy reader, even if I will admit to being addicted to trashy supernatural TV shows of that ilk.  Still, having avoided Twilight, Laurel K. Hamilton, and most of that genre, I do enjoy novels in verse and if someone promises me that the book is bloody, complex, and full of antiheroes, then I am all in, werewolves or not. 

 

To say too much would spoil it, except to say that Sharp Teeth is unexpected, elides genre conventions, is full of culture-critical senseless violence that makes all too much sense in context, and ends nowhere near how one might expect.

 

Just as any real reader could hope.
