I was just flailing around when I saw this book on Netgalley. OMG, Sarah Andersen has another comic? How did I miss this one? How could I miss it? It features her great art and a werewolf and a vampire dating and all that comes with that.
These two meet at a bar and instantly have an attraction. I had a big laugh at how the wolf guy seemed to wonder about her 300 age at first but when she said she looks like 26 he was OK with it. 😛 Throughout the book we see the trials, the romance, and more that entails a romantic relationship between a vampire and a werewolf. Because it isn’t always easy for either of them. They can’t have romantic dinners (she doesn’t eat and I don’t think you want to put steak in front of him), she sleeps during the day, he cannot show her to his friends (who are seriously wondering if she exists). But there are also other things both of them have to keep an eye out for. Like him opening the curtains at morning and almost burning his girl to a crisp. Or her touching him with a silver ring. They have a lot to learn about each other and it is not always easy. But they do try their best to make things working. And I had so much fun reading this one.
Their conversations had me laughing so hard. They talk about everything under the moon. From religion (he is one with nature… she worships Satan) to past relationships to drinking blood to being a werewolf (and he is such an adorable and fluffy little ball of cuteness who with just one pet goes from hunter to OMG belly rubs). Plus, I love how Sarah drew them in those conversations. She in the shadows, he half light half shadow. That is a really nice touch.
I loved how you could see that he was a werewolf without him changing into one. From changing squirrels to him scratching at the door at the mention of walkies. Oh boy. It amazes me no one ever found out he is a werewolf. I guess they just thought he was weird. 😛
Can I say I just love her fashion sense? I want some of those dramatic dresses as well!
All in all, I definitely want to add this book to my collection, and I hope that we get more of these two because I would love to see them get married (though good luck finding a place that works for both of them). I would highly recommend it.
