I thought the story was interesting, but I would have liked more character development, alonger story, and a happier ending. I did enjoy the story, however, and just wanted to know more.

The story's concept is good; delivery is not.

While there were several parts that received adequate attention, for the majority of my read, I felt that the author's development of character and plot was skimpy. As a reader, I want more.

This is the lowest rating I've ever given to an author's work. Whether a 'read' is free or paid for I expect quality writing. I want to find myself immersed in the story, invested in the characters, and so much a part of the setting that I feel its reality. That was not the case in "Wolf Medicine".

My hope is that the author's subsequent writings will evidence a greater maturity and that perhaps that this title would undergo an intensive rewrite.

An excellent story. Not your usual werewolf tale. Like Kaylana Bell (below), I also love wolves. They are my personal totem, ever since I got lost in the woods in Alaska and one guided me back to the main trail.

The ending, of course, broke my heart. But isn't that just the way life goes, some times? I look forward to reading more by this author.

I love this book, I love wolves and was interested in how they included a romance into a folk-tale story. I didn't like the ending, though. I thought that Malsm/Walt should have ended up human so him and Jeanie could live together. But it was a great book either way.

Review by: Carol on May 06, 2012 :
A different type of werewolf story framed on aboriginal legend. The feel is more story telling than romance and the ending would not sit well for someone looking for a romance story despite the romantic elements. A beautifully set story.

I loved the book but it was too short and left you hanging. I would have loved it more if they could have found each other again and had a life together.

Review by: Doodles Manuel on Feb. 10, 2012 :
The pain of the story was palpable,such a sad end to a
realistic tale.Many true tales meant for learning a life
lesson are frequently sad
and painful, as this one was.
I felt the characters were true to their nature, made real
to the reader or fleshed out, if you will.The story line is not
one chosen to sell books, but to be true to the legend
I felt, whether that was the
author's intention, I could not
say.This story of a love so great that the lover was able
to release the one they loved
to free their spirit of a tortured existence , even though that meant losing them forever.

Great story enjoyed it the whole way through. Was dissapointed when it finished. The story and characters could have been developed a lot more. Felt almost rushed through the book. Still loved it though. Look forward to more work.

Nice and easy read. Good for relaxation. Some romance with a hint of thriller and a quick in site into a native American tale.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I loved the story from beginning to end. It is very short, only about sixty-eight pages in length, but jammed packed with action and Indian lore. Jeanie is a young woman who specializes in the study of wolves. She has taken a job in the New Hampshire mountains in an isolated cabin for a year to follow and study the wolf packs indigenous to the area. There are stories of a very large wolf and his mate who allegedly killed a local's sister, subsequently the female wolf was shot and killed by the brother who then mounted the wolf hide on the wall of his country store. Thus the mystery begins. The story is well written and the characters believable. My only complaint was that it did not go on and on because I wanted more. I picked this up at Smashwords, it was offered as a freebie for the summer reads and it was certainly worth the effort - check it out.
