How To Marry A Werewolf (Claw & Courtship #1) Reviews
Utterly adorable. And the short length kept Carriger's twee tendencies from taking over.
SO GOOD. SO SO GOOD. I was not “into” Channing before this (I liked him as a character and found him interesting, but wasn’t captivated). Holy cow this swept me in. I LOVE geologist Faith. :) Such a wonderful and different character. And, as always, Carriger’s writing is as clever, funny, and beautiful as ever. I want a whole series with these two! And Teddy!!! More Teddy!!
Loved!! Couldn't stop reading
This story has it all. Werewolves and rocks and tea and a great villain...and an AMERICAN?! yes and she is wonderful. Also really funny
I always have so much fun reading Carriger's books!
I loved that the grumpy Major Channing was finally able to find some love! And both he and Faith were wonderful characters to follow!
Seeing as this novella was nearly 200 pages, I would have like for it to have been stretched to a full length novel in order to provide more for the plot happening behind the romance. But the whole thing was cute and a pleasure to read. Although, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it if you haven't read Carriger's o ...more
This was absolutely incredible, I'm still dazed from all the emotions.
So. This is Channing's book. Channing Channing of the Chesterfield Channings (no, really, that's his name) has been a polarizing character from the very beginning when he first appeared in the Parasol Verse (and he's been there almost from the very beginning.) He made me snicker but he also made me sneer, with his grumpiness, arrogance, eating dogs and comments about women. He's made quite the journey since then - there are ...more
One of her weaker novellas. Major Channing falls for a rock-hunting American. I found Major Channing's backstory...kind of less interesting than I was hoping. But if you want to know what's up with Channing, here's what's up with Channing. If you don't know who Channing is...this is not the book to start with. Go back to Soulless, start at the top.
This book takes place in the same universe as Romancing the Werewolf and, in fact, features the same London Werewolf Pack headed by Biffy and Liall. As such, it's great to get to visit with these characters again, while getting to know the Gamma wolf Channing and the protagonist of the story, Faith Wigglesworth. Their relationship flows through story with such ease and builds over the length of the story, with each facing and confronting their fears in turn, that you don't realize how fast you'r ...more
Great characters and amazing banter!
What a lovely story! I always love Carriger's characters and the witty banter. I get sucked into the world her words create and never want to leave! I felt thst way about this short story as well.
