Wow. I just finished reading this, I started a few hours ago on a whim and was literally unable to put it down since. The need to keep going even pushed me through the notes at the end and half of the free chapter of Laura’s wolf that’s included before my need to review overwhelmed me.
This has intricate world building, not just werewolves but not white werewolves who have werewolf customs but also keep the culture they emigrated from. Not just super senses but an overdeveloped need for social touching that makes shifters uncomfortable around non shifters, which are, to my great delight given an outsider name (being that if being a werewolf is perfectly normal for you and yours, you wouldn’t go around calling regular humans just “normal” or non werewolves.). One bodied is a great description, too, from the perspective of someone for whom shifting is a natural and everyday ability. The concept that becoming a werewolf if you weren’t one would fuck you up massively is also one that I found resonated with many of my own theories and the author gives just enough information to make you want to know a little more (I’m looking forward to reading Laura’s wolf and seeing how Roy handles the situation).

Both protagonists were interesting in their own right, although DJ is a bit more tridimensional on account of not having grown up in a lab.

*BIT OF A SPOILER*
I enjoyed the tension between them a lot, too, although perhaps I would have argued for an unhappier ending to be more in line with Echo’s personality and obvious desensitization, I can buy that everybody will eventually snap.
