    Story
    "A Good Choice for Fans of Davidson's Undead Series"

    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.

    "Derik's Bane is so-so. Skip the short story!"
    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.

    Story
    "Laugh out loud funny"

    This book was so funny the banter between Derrick and Sarah kept me chuckling out loud. The narrator did a good job in telling the story. This is the first time I have listened to Nancy Wu and will be looking for her in the future.

    Story
    "Done with MaryJanice Davidson's Foolishness"
    What disappointed you about Derik's Bane?

    I wish I could give a zero rating for both of these stories. It was the same ol' ridiculousness that turned me off of her Undead Series. In Derik's Bane the fate of the world is (as usual) in the hands of some beautiful, dense, powerful, but unknowing woman and she needs to be rescued from herself. And it wouldn't be complete without some kind of chaotic nonsense taking place in the meantime. Strong emphasis on nonsense. That writing formula is old and played out. And the novella at the end, Monster Love, was worse! It is basically about a woman/werewolf/whatever who was physically attacked, kidnapped, raped and held hostage by a deranged and obsessive man/vampire/whatever. And then in true Stockholm Syndrome fashion she "fell in love" with him, leaving her family, friends and all she knew behind for him. I couldn't believe it! I'll be returning this book and won't waste another penny or second of my time on any more of her stories. Maybe she's trying to lose readers. If so, then well done! Five stars for that!


    Has Derik's Bane turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I love the genre. But I'm definitely done with MaryJanice Davidson.


    What about Nancy Wu’s performance did you like?

    I don't have any complaints about her performance. It's not her fault she had to narrate two crappy stories.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.

    Story
    "Relationships at it's Funniest"

    If you are looking for a light & funny listen this is it.

    A werewolf sent to kill Morganna (King Arthur's sister reincarnated) just can't do it because she is too cute and ditzy. So they face the end of the world. You'll laugh all the way through this book as it reveals the hysterical side of relationships. They both are driven crazy by the other's thought process & actions, yet, are drawn to each other. That part is very true to life.

    Nancy Wu is awesome as the narrator of this book. She had all the characters, speech inflection and story line perfect. She is someone to look for while listening to books because she can create perfect voices for all the characters.

    If you want an easy listen & your day made lighter this is the book to pick.
