Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones.

This is the second book I’ve reviewed of Stephen Graham Jones and there will be more to come.

Unlike The Least Of My Scars this one was a bit of a slow burner for me at first but at the end I genuinely cared for the main characters and preferring this one. A good coming of age story about wanting to fit in.

It’s essentially about a family of werewolves who have to travel trheough the southern United States to avoid any suspicion about what they are. The narrator although a part of the family hasn’t developed the traits and you begin to doubt if he will. Despite thus I do like how the family look out for one another.

Without giving too much away it is somewhat episodic in nature the way the chapters are presented

I’m glad I discovered Jones

The Least Of My Scars by Stephen Graham Jones

This one took me by suprise. It’s not so much about the character himself being dangerous but more how he is used by others. Who is worse, the man who is amoral or the people who take advantage of that fact? The main character essentially gets used for his depravity.

I liked how some of the twists and revelations were presented in the book but the ending didn’t quite sit well with me.

The main character is also a Hughes ( we ain’t all that bad)
