    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.)

    Right now I'm actually looking into the Heroka series by Douglas Smith. They're pretty recent but look like theyre pretty reminiscent of Werewolf (possibly with less blood and guts). But to read them I have to find an .epub reader that I can understand how to use.

    Incidentally, if you have any interest in non-WoD werewolf novels (including those that influenced Werewolf's development), you may want to take a look at Whitley Strieber's The Wolfen.

    If I recall correctly, the comics were stand alone stories, without an overarching story.

    I have 7 tribe novels for 14 tribes. That's all of them, even BSDs.

    The tribe comic series is the one that was never finished.

    No, they seem complete now on DriveThru...
    Maybe I was mistaken, thinking about the revised Tribebooks...

    What tribe novel is missing? I have the 7 books. Is there another one?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

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