I really enjoyed this book, a sense of scary, and bizarre. Leon is a drifter, moving from city to city, getting a job and a bit of cash before moving on. Trying one night to hitch a lift back from a party, he is picked up by Christoph, a gorgeous looking male in a Porsche, but Christoph hides a secret, a painful terrible secret, which is soon made obvious when Leon, scared of what being taken to a near derelict house in the country tries to run.
Leon finds himself in a bizarre world, inhabited by creatures, and between him and Christian they have to right the wrongs and try to set themselves on a better path, a path to life and love.

Fabulous story that gets you hooked from the beginning ! It teases wonderfully. The "will they, won't they" dynamic between the two main characters is just brilliant. The attention to detail in the backdrop of Berlin is excellent (although I would question getting 4 grown men into a Porsche!)..... Brilliant storytelling and a book you just want to go on and on !

HASH(0x947e77a4) out of 5 stars 4.25 stars 23 Feb. 2012
By Lasha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
So far I have enjoyed every JL Merrow book I have read. She has a distinctive voice in her novels and Midnight in Berlin is no exception. Set in Germany, the setting is everything in this book about an American drifter turned into a werewolf against his will. All throughout the book, I was transported into German culture, life and location. (And this comes from someone who only ever visited Germany once - and doesn't remember much since it was Oktoberfest!) Told in first person from Leon's perspective, the novel explores his viewpoint as his life is turned upside down once he is turned into a werewolf and forced into a dysfunctional pack that includes the man who turned him (Christoph).

The plot revolves around Leon, an American living and working in Germany. In the beginning, I found Leon to be unmotivated, flighty and unsure of where he is going in life. Once a hot guy in a Porsche picks him up, his life will never be the same again. You see Christoph is a werewolf, and he mistakes Leon for another shifter, a potential mate, and winds up biting Leon. That bite turns Leon and he is forced into Christoph's pack, having to learn the ropes from some seriously demented werewolves, who seem more like they are in a cult, than a pack. As Leon and Christoph grow closer they decide they have to leave their pack, but will the pack leader let them go?

The best thing about this book was its characterizations. Normally first person POV is limiting, but in my estimation Midnight in Berlin has a great deal of interesting characters, who are complex, multi-faceted and intriguing. Whether I was hating the `villain,' or cheering the protagonist, I was emotionally invested in every aspect of the plot which for me is sometimes lacking in werewolf novels where the mating/bonding/Instant-Love trope is paramount.

Secondly, every time I thought I knew where the novel was going in terms of plot (I mean I've read enough of these shape shifter books to know what usually happens), JL Merrow would take the action in an opposite direction. In fact, a totally opposite direction that was so much more emotionally satisfying than if she had just followed the tried and true trope of the genre. Since I can't give away spoilers, what I can say is that Midnight in Berlin bucks the traditional werewolf/shifter book in a genuinely fascinating way. When an author can make a reader feel sympathy for a formerly despised character, that takes true talent.

HASH(0x94803ac8) out of 5 stars Good, But Not For Me 28 Mar. 2014
By Alan Arthur Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
JL Merrow is one of my two or three favorite authors.

Her writing, her dialog, her characters are generally rich, precise and beautifully written. "Midnight In Berlin" is no exception.

So why only three stars? Well, this is about me, not Ms. Merrow. Werewolves are not my thing, and this particularly cavalier treatment, even less so. No big deal, we just grow big noses, fangs, lots of hair, but things could be worse.

Don't let my review prevent you from buying and enjoying this book if you're into the Werewolf thing. It's just not for me. I bought it only because I became desperate for a Merrow fix, and I'd already read all her other full-length books.

HASH(0x94c5b474) out of 5 stars "Violence, gore, and action mix in with a sweet, tentative romance" 7 July 2012
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
On his way back to his lodgings from a music festival, Leon is pleased to be offered a ride from a sexy guy in a Porsche. He thinks it may be his lucky night, until the guy starts acting really weird. Before he knows it, the man has bitten him, and suddenly his simple drifter lifestyle is a lot more complicated.

Christoph has made a huge mistake. Thinking Leon is a werewolf without a pack, he attacks the man. Once he realizes he's misread the situation, it's too late, and he's committed to a course of action. Being turned into a werewolf makes Leon furious, but not enough to leave Christoph tormented and locked in a cage.

Without really considering the results, Leon frees Christoph from the cage and flees with him. Unfortunately, they now have to contend with a vengeful pack leader, and way too many unknowns. Will Leon and Christoph survive the terrifying challenges they are about to face?

If you like dark yet romantic stories, Midnight in Berlin will be right up your alley. JL Merrow takes a lot of the tropes of both paranormal / horror and romance and twists them a bit. Leon is not your typical hero. He's a drifter, content to hold a series of menial jobs so he can travel around Europe attending music festivals and just hanging out. Everything he owns can fit into a single backpack, and that's the way he wants it. Then he's changed into a werewolf, and his entire life is turned upside down. He begins to realize that there might be more to life than what he has been settling for. Christoph, with his gorgeous face, sweet Porsche, and obvious money, should be a princely romance hero, yet he is a werewolf. He's a member of a ruthless pack, but he tries to be a good man. The contrasts in both men's characters make for great conflict and a lot of realism. It's especially effective that Leon is the point of view character, given how much growth he goes through. I loved the way Leon grew and changed throughout the story while still remaining the same at his core.

Most of the werewolves in Midnight in Berlin aren't the beautiful, graceful wolves seen in most stories, but werewolves in the truest sense: created monsters that walk on two legs, caught between two forms. They often behave like monsters, something Christoph fights against. Some of them believe they are special due to their status, others that they have become abominations. JL Merrow's choice to make the werewolves the horror type rather than the more romantic one made for a more brutal story, which I liked. Violence, gore, and action mix in with a sweet, tentative romance. Midnight in Berlin may be dark, non-traditional, and often surprising, but it's also a very enjoyable romance.

HASH(0xa828edb0) out of 5 stars Pretty Good 12 Aug. 2012
By shacary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I ordered this last nite after a sampling. It was pretty good. There was a gritty realism in the nomadic, alternate lifestyle character [Leon ] that was expressed well.
The plot line was decent and ended with a twist. I have to confess I was totally not expecting that. There was limited character growth visible outside of the MC but I found it interesting anyways. It takes time and toil to learn a persons total being; so being thrust in the hectic/ dangerous/ violent situations with few comrades I can totally see how things developed so fast.
If one is looking for scintallating sex, its absent here. There were a few "scenes" but it was short and nothing gripping. Perhaps this is more realistic perspective anyways, just that as a Yaoi fangirl I had hoped for hot and heavy { nonviolent } closures.
There were a few typos but nothing serious and it did not stop me from devouring the story in a few hours. I have and reccomend purchasing other books. I did like the plotline and the story flowed well. It ended kinda abruptly would have been neat to see what became of the other "pack"; especially the young teen. Mb a sequel incoming? all in all,a Pretty Good read!

HASH(0x96d1d0c0) out of 5 stars Nice afternoon read! 22 Feb. 2012
By Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Leon is bumming through Europe to avoid the life his mother believes he should live. He's in Berlin enjoying the atmosphere and beer. Leon is drunk and caught in the rain till Christoph's stops to offer a ride. Christoph is a werewolf that believes he has found another werewolf when he sees Leon, and their journey begins.

It is told from Leon's point of view. This is nice because you really get to know Leon as a confused, commitmentphobe and reluctant hero. On the flip side there are a number of really interesting characters that I didn't get to know because Leon could only see them on the surface. Leon is a snarky fellow that uses humor to cover up his discomfort. Leon's character is deep and well written, which makes me wonder what the author could have done with the other character.

Overall it was a fun book to read, but I hope the next book I read from JL Merrow includes more than one character's point of view. In the end I did like the book more than I expected when I started reading it.
