It’s inherently British too, set in the Welsh valleys where it’s entirely too easy to believe there really are shifters living among the tiny little farming communities.
It also very much shines a light on another typically British tradition – that of travelling people who follow the routes their families have driven for generations around the country.
By that I don’t mean the New Age Travellers, as they came to be known, but the genuine Romani families whose lives have changed little only to exchange a horse and vardo for a pickup and a caravan.
There’s also an element of self-discovery, as Quinn begins to feel something’s up after meeting Kellan and and having an instant attraction to the shifter.
I also loved that this didn’t feel in the slightest bit paranormal outside of the turning into a wolf bit that is! Now by that I mean there wasn’t an emphasis on the supernatural fact that these people could turn into wolves. It was just treated as one of those things.
Mostly The Half Wolf is a book about discovering your true self, about falling in love, about family being more than just blood, it’s about friendships and fears, about ancient mistrusts and new hopes; it’s settling down and digging in roots, and it’s about always being willing to listen to the voice inside when it nags you to go out and find your place.
It’s lovely and passionate and sweet and emotional and it packs a lot in to a fairly short length. I hope Jay lingers in this world for a while.
The beautiful cover from Garrett Leigh perfectly sums up the delights inside as Quinn awakens in a number of ways.
The Half Wolf is a different shifter story from others that I've read. With the plethora of shifter stories available these days, I consider that a good thing. While this isn't my favorite shifter story, I still liked it a lot and it's a solid 4-star read for me.
Kellan is part of a gypsy-like shifter pack. Quinn is a young man who works for his aunt; his parents are dead. When Kellan comes into the store where Quinn works he is intrigued by the unusual scent that Quinn has. The two strike up a friendship that soon turns to more.
I liked the dynamics of this story; there seem to be a lot of metaphors for the lack of acceptance that people who are different face every day in real life. Quinn was brought up to accept shifters while many people in his town do not like them and don't want them around.
It's sad that it takes a major crisis for the townspeople to see that the shifters pose no threat to them. Unfortunately, this is how things often happen in real life as well.
All-in-all, this was a very enjoyable story from an author whose work I really like.
An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.
What follows is a story with lots of excitement, tension, danger and a surprising twist. I read it in one sitting and, although I think the book is a standalone, would love to see future instalments involving the village and the pack. It's also very British, which I enjoyed, as I hail from the UK. It also features the very topical concerns of bigotry, intolerance and narrow-mindedness. The author is an auto buy for me, and this story demonstrated further why this is the case.
I received an arc of this book from the author, and voluntarily reviewed it.
Kellan's pack moves into the woods close to town, a lot the humans are very cautious but one who isn't is Quinn. He always been intrigued by the shifters and can't help himself in going looking for them. What Quinn never expected was from that moment of seeing the shifters especially one in particular his body and mind starts to change!!
The coming together of Quinn and Kellan was sweet with a little bit of angst. I look forward to seeing Jay progress in this Genre. I've always loved Jay's books he's a great M/M author, and will continue to do so.
