Who is your favorite werewolf?! February 9, 2010

My fave shifter movie.

The release of The Wolf Man is this week. Yup — it’s a remake of the 1941’s classic that starred Lon Chaney, Jr., but now Benicio del Toro will get all hairy and snarly on us. The remake looks very interesting and creepy and full of blood and gore and bodices. (Per the movie trailers!) Will go see it. But for some reason, my fave wolfy film is the 1981 An American Werewolf in London. It’s possible it left such an impression on my because I was still in high school. Maybe it was the music. Dunno. But what’s your fave werewolf movie? Heck, forget the movies. Who is your fave werewolf from the world of paranormal romance?

Anita Blake’s Richard? Twilight’s Jacob? Adam from the Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series? Alcide from the Sookie Stackhouse novels …. see where I’m going here. There are probably a ton more. Leave a comment with your fave wolfy boy or flick. And maybe we can get a conversation going on hairy things that go bump in the dark. (Here’s a cool little movie chart that  shapeshifterromance.wordpress.com sent us to > http://bit.ly/d0SaN4 (be sure to go back and check out the shapeshifter blog though. It’s fun.)

In the meantime — here’s a tune from An American Werewolf in London, along with a little transformation!

I’m recent to werewolves but I love,love, love!!!! the movie BLOOD & CHOCOLATE with hunky Olivier Martenez as werewolf pack leader. Olivier has been in several movies but you can see him here advertising Yve St. Laurent men’s cologne.
Now isn’t he the best werewolf material?

As for books, I guess Adam in the Patricia Briggs books. He’s got lots of common sense which seems to elude Acide, Jacob and even Richard.

I haven’t seen Blood & Chocolate. Hummmm — maybe I will rent that! (I tend to favor Adam in Patricia Briggs series myself!)

Getting snow in your area? I see NYC has blizzard alert! Stay warm!

We had 4″ of snow this morning, it stopped for about 3 hours which was just long enough to shovel out the driveway and front walk. Now it has started again with lots of blowing. It is all out of the north so it is a true Nor’easter. I’m not going anywhere, hunkering down with SPELLBENT by Lucy A. Snyder.

I love all things wolfy. As for movies, my favorites are probably Le Pacte des loups (Brotherhood of the Wolf) – it is french and very cool. I also greatly enjoyed Dog Soldiers, the Underworld movies ad American Werewolf in London (and Paris, too). I enjoyed Blood & Chocolate, but keep hearing that the book is so much better. I just haven’t read it yet.

As for books, I really like Clayton in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Underworld series. There needs to be more Clayton! Richard in the Anita Blake books is great, but so very frustrating with his wishy-washy and holier than thou attitude. Of the werewolves in the Blake books, I actually prefer Jason – cute, sexy, superchill and doesn’t make any demands.

ohhh — I forgot about Clayton!

Lisa Champ - February 12, 2010

Shame, shame. You should never forget about Clayton! 🙂

Lachlain from Kresley Cole’s “A Hunger Like No Other.”

Diana McCabe - February 14, 2010

OK — I was thinking what an idiot I was for not thinking of Clayton in the Kelley Armstrong’s books, but I’m a huge fan of Kresley Cole’s series and A HUNGER LIKE NO OTHER is one of my faves. How could I have forgotten Lachlain or her other Lykae?! (She’s got a book coming out this week — PLEASURE OF A DARK PRINCE. Lucia and Garreth’s story! Are you gonna read? I have to go out and get it! Think it comes out Tuesday.)

Hmm, favorite werewolf, and I guess it wouldn’t be fair to say one of mine is my fav, besides, my fav wolf of mine hasn’t come out yet (March maybe?)

But yeah, Kresley Cole is awesome, A hunger like no other is definitely my fav of her books. I’m not as much into her demons for some reason.

Blood and chocolate the movie is nothing like blood and chocolate the book. The book is TONS better

Diana McCabe - February 18, 2010

Hey — you’re allowed to be biased! Ummmm — would that fav werewolf be in Dark Succession!? I know, I know — Lone Wolf just came out at end of the year. We’ve gotta do a Q&A on your shifters!

Teresa D'Amario - February 18, 2010

That’s the one! Hun, you guys are gonna MELT when you get to know Ryland! He sizzles he’s so danged hot and alpha! I had to work extra hard on him to do him justice, thus the reason it’s taken so long to get the book out!

In fact, I was just working on edits for it tonite, while watching the olympics. I kept wanting to stop watching and just read and melt!

Diana McCabe - February 18, 2010

OK — so if I see any descriptions of weird hairstyles, feathered gloves or other skater boy gear, I’ll know you edited in some Olympic description. (Just got Kresley Cole’s latest ….. It’s the year of the wolf, eh?)


8. Teresa D'Amario - February 19, 2010

No way, no skater boy gear! You might see some AI styles though (just kidding).. Love me some olympics, but one skater boy doesn’t appeal.
