Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm serious. I gave it 5 stars because the book is great but I hate the way it made me feel.
(don't worry no spoilers ahead)
Boyd is a great writer- the other reviewers pointed that out already so I'll stick to the point.
the first 4/5 are great- sure, I hated the werewolves for being so condescending, I resented the human, Tessa, for being a doormat (I kept hoping she'd buy a dog whistle and kick some werewolf ass).
and then the book took a very surprising turn that at first made me pleased- finally the human shows some character! finally, werewolves learn some humility! oh silly me.
I knew the ending is tragic- it says so on the back of the book but I had no idea it was *that* kind of tragic. the kind that haunts you for days after...
it embarrasses me to say this but the ending left me VERY distraught.
I guess I wrote this review as a warning- if you're going to read this book make sure you are alone and make sure you have enough time to recover...

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 26 Sept. 2001
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Compelling, absorbing, and lyrical... Ms. Boyd can sure tell a story. She spins a tale of a subculture of urbane werewolves which exist and live amidst humans, unbeknownst to most of them. They are wealthy, elegant, intelligent, well-educated, and powerful: the consummate "beautiful people" known as the Devoncroix clan.
It is a story which is sinuous in its imagery and sensual in its use of language. She weaves the tale of the head of the Devoncroix clan, Alexander, and his connection to the all too human Tessa. It is her fascination with Alexander and his fascination with her which is at the heart of this novel.
Her description of werewolves and their subculture is intriguing and spellbinding. She draws you in and before you know it, you are caught: hook, line, and sinker. You dread coming to the end of the book, and when you do, you cannot wait to go out and get the sequel. Anne Rice, beware, here comes the heir apparent! Anyway, the book is a great read.

Format: Hardcover
Werewolf culture has never been explored better than in Donna Boyd's fabulous novel, which illuminates the gulf between the human and the lycanthropic. Young, human Tessa wants to live with the werewolves, and who could blame her. Portrayed here they are charismatic, sensual creatures. But their world can never be hers and what happens to her when she refuses to accept this makes for the most gripping read I've had in a long time. Buy this book -- I guarantee the final chapters will haunt you long after you've finished reading. My only complaint: why couldn't the publisher have given this book a beautiful cover to go with the beautiful story inside??

Format: Hardcover
The book was very good. I felt that the werewolves were kinda like the rich-folk looking down on the peasants. but some redemption does come around. Like Denis and Tessa. The ending is kinda a downer but if its only a beginning book of a series then I would like to read the rest.

Format: Hardcover
The characters were interesting, but I wished the main human character was a little stronger. I was not convinced by the author to have any sympathy for her situation. The werewolves themselves are decent enough, but their criticism of humankind generated a little ill feeling in me towards them also. Overall it is a complete story in itself, but leaves the storyline wide open for a sequel, which I will say I would be inclined to read. It is a good all around interesting horror/fantasy/romance novel.

Loved this book. I've heard it's the first in a major series. It does for werewolves what Anne Rice did for vampires. Donna Boyd's werewolves are brilliant, seductive, romantic, capable of both immense good and evil. Forget everything you know about werewolf mythology!The Passion has the rich feel of a historical novel combined with the edginess of a modern plot. I predict Donna Boyd is going to develop a large and loyal following, starting with this book.
