What disappointed you about Derik's Bane?
Why in heaven's name would you sneak in the that short story "Monster Love"? I was "OK" with this novel ... not good but it was OK. Then the ugly short-story started. RAPE is not romance.
What was most disappointing about MaryJanice Davidson’s story?
RAPE IS NOT ROMANCE.
What does Nancy Wu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She is a very good narrator.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
If you jump past the piece of violent crud at the end, Derek's Bane was ok.
Any additional comments?
MaryJanice Davidson: Rape is Rape. It is not romance and it is not fun or funny. I always thought the Luke and Laura "romance" was sick and I would have thought that we had progressed past this level of sick thinking.
Please do not throw this garbage into any more of your books or you will lose readership.

Derik's Bane is the third book in MaryJanice Davidson's Wyndham Werewolf series, which follows different pack members through their romantic endeavors. This story takes place in the same contemporary fantasy setting featured in Davidson's Undead series. However, instead of vampires, this book features a werewolf from the Wyndham pack and the modern reincarnation of Morgan Le Fay. If you enjoy the comedy in Davidson's other novels, you'll enjoy this book too. If you have not read/listened to Davidson's novels before, expect a paranormal romance with a heavy dose of comedy.
Speaking of comedy, Nancy Wu nails the delivery. The Wu/Davidson team rivals Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi, in my opinion.
