  • Recommend Werewolf novels to me

    Hi all,

    I want to buy and read Werewolf novels, and/or anthologies. Any edition or setting time period, as long as they're good.

    So which are the best written in terms of characters, plots without plot holes or continuity problems, theme, quality, etc? Which would you recommend? (Please don't recommend something that can only be understood by reading a 13-book series, though.)


    I am extremely literal-minded and always write very literally. If I don't say something explicitly, please never assume I implied it. The only exception is if I try to joke.
    Exalted and cWoD book list. Exalted name-generators, Infernal and 1E-2.5E homebrew from many authors.

      Speaking of which, I liked THE SILVER CROWN which was about Albrecht trying to prove that he really is the King of the Silver Fangs to the OTHER Kings of the Silver Fangs.

        I forgot to add, I'm hoping to avoid the books that have the most egregious of the racial and tribe stereotype stuff in them.

          Generally, the novels didn't get into that sort of thing anyway.

            The Final Battle was excellent! And read the Silver Crown for Albrechts story, I read mine I the Quintessential World of Darkness Collection of several stories.


            It is a time for great deeds!

              Anthologies:
              Drums around the Fire.
              Rites of Renown.
              When Will You Rage.

              The above three are all great, if I had to pick a favourite it would be Drums Around The Fire.

              Novels:
              The Poison Tree is good.
              Breath Deeply and The Silver Crown are pretty good, can get a little gonzo in places.

              I can't recommend any of the Harper-Collins books....they're just not good.

              Call to Battle is garbage.

              The Tribe Novels are a nice read, but none of them are really exceptional.

              I have not read The Last Battle so I'm not sure about that one.

                This is looking good, thank you all.

                Which edition of When Will You Rage? is the one to get, please?

                This anthology contains the entire Silver Crown novel? Plus additional stories from other gamelines?

                  Yuppers. It has a story about a wraith his family and a cursed blade of Jack the Ripper. A Fae novel about a muse if I recall correctly, kindred of the east tale about westerners at a dinner, a book about a Las Vegas Mage Magician, and our beloved Silver Crown.

                  Wasn’t their only one when will you rage?

                    I can't believe how much money I spent.

                    It's probably less than the total money I've spent on Werewolf game books over my lifetime, despite never getting to play the game.
                    That's what I'm telling myself.

                      I read The Silver Crown in about 2 days and enjoyed it a lot. Wow, Albrecht has an ungodly amount of restraint and self-control.

                      Drums Around the Fire is available through DriveThru after all. But for some reason all but one of the Tribe Novels are in the current sale. Weird.

                        Yeah, even after years, there is no tribe novel bundle, because one novel is still missing from the series...

                        Silver Crown and Breath deeply are nice to read. Drums around the Fire, as an anthology, is also great.
