Update – and rec: Infected Series

I’m not sitting idle, but to confess, I’ve been working on another writing project.  However, I hope to have Wielder World 3: Afflicted to the Core, out next spring, assuming the editing process goes smoothly.

I have been reading in spare snatches of time: in the bathtub, at lunch, right before bed, and I wanted to recommend Andrea Speed’s Infected series.

Things I like: I like that the werecats are brutal animals while in cat form, that it’s not some human in animal form.  I like the fact that Roan isn’t flouncy.  He’s not stereotypical anything.  He’s just a guy, who happens to be infected and gay.  I love Paris.  I enjoy the supportive relationship between the two.

Not my favorite: It’s a world that disparages against gays.  I like stories where being gay isn’t a major plot issue.  Also, there is a gay bar that no straight guy would ever go into.  Which, I don’t get.  I have plenty of straight friends who will go to gay bars with me.  The gays don’t care.  The straights don’t care.

This is a good solid rec for me. If you like solid relationships, fun writing, and a great world, give Infected a try.
