The Black Wolves of Boston
The Black Wolves of Boston is a fun and enjoyable novel following four characters immersed in a civil war between Wicker Witches, werewolves, and the angelic descendants pledged to rid the world of evil. It revolves around the decimated werewolf pack dedicated to protecting Boston and a depressed vampire dedicated to helping one of the angelic Virtues as they battle the Wickers for control of the city. While the plot is engaging and made it hard to put the novel down, it also suffered from a lack of depth on the part of the characters and poor copyediting. Each of our four main characters is a caricature of a full person, a cardboard cutout of surface motivations and quirks, some of which may be the fault of jumping between close third-person from chapter to chapter; it did not give any of the characters a chance to evolve into something more complex. However, if you can make it through a rough first few chapters and don’t mind the simple nature of the characters, it is a pleasant read with plenty of action and a dash of romance in a desperate fight to the finish.
