    A. Huli, beautiful and curiously foxlike, works as a classy prostitute in Moscow's premier hotels, until one client goes inexplicably and fatally berserk at the sight of her and she has to leave in a hurry. Forced to advertise on the Internet, she comes to the attention of an intelligence officer who also happens to be a werewolf.

    if you're looking for a bodice ripping, two-dimensional, paranormal romance with vampiric and lycanthropic sex, you've come to the wrong place.
    this book was frigging awesome. and because some short-sided reviewers chose to bash it, less and less people will try it. that really bums me out.

    the narrator was brilliant. i wouldn't call the story's progression slow, i'd call it gradual. and i wouldn't call it boring. just because a novel doesn't give you what you want doesn't mean it isn't good. Hamilton and Feehan fans may be expecting a smaller calibar of novel. THIS IS NOT PELEVIN'S FAULT.

    this novel has some fantasy elements but they exist to tilt the earth off-center a bit, not to generate an entire fanciful universe. its more surrealistic than science fiction, to a purpose other than simple diversion. Pelevin's story has a point. it's a socio-political commentary on post-soviet russia...with werewolves, werefoxes, and taoist immortals. i'd tell you more, but i dont want to ruin it (for those who are brave enough and sharp enough to try it out despite other negative, unfair assessments).

    frankly, i loved it.
