    This book supposes a world where than 99% of the population are lycanthropes who transform into wild unthinking beasts for a single night every month The tiny minority of non lycanthropes are drafted into an organization that polices the rest of the population The nons spend that night hunting down those who violate the law by not locking themselves safely away The protagonist is a non and the book is not so mu

Bareback

It is a world much like our own with one deadly difference ninety nine percent of the population is lycanthropic When the full moon rises humans transform into lunes bloodthirsty beasts who cannot be reasoned with or tamed Those few born unable to change are disparagingly k. Let s be honest the urbanparanormal fantasy sub genre is glutted at this point in time Like all genres UF has varying degrees or classes of writers or books You have books that are uick fun reads kinda guilty pleasures or B movies such as the Kitty Norville books You have books whose authors believe they are making some type of message but really aren t a B movie with pretensions You have books that can rise above the B level with a little something like Dresden FilesThen you have Benighted an entirely different kettle of fish It is either literature or it borders on literature Where it stands comes down to the reader s liking of Whitfield s styleIf you are expecting standard UF or PF fare Benighted is not the book for you It is nothing like Anita Blake Women of the Otherworld or The Hollows It is a difficult and challenging book It s not a light read It is however a rewarding and thought provoking readSeveral weeks back I read and reviewed The Summoningand said I was tired of race being used simply in terms of romantic angst and how females leads weren t really different in terms of looks This is not the case with Benighted Whitfield s set up is uite simple In a world where most of the population goes furry every month the small minority that doesn t is the agency that patrols the furry population when they hit their monthly Whitfield s main character Lola is a bareback yes I know there is a different meaning to that word which means she is not a lune werewolf Because of this she and the others like her experience discrimination every single day This allows Whitfield to actually look at the effects of such discrimination on people Too often in UF we get lip service to the idea of discrimination or racism or sexism If you look at the popular series however there is no in depth analysis of it Anita Blake Elena and Kitty are all non human and are segregated out of the human society because of what they are yet in their books we mostly see them functioning in a society where they are not the minority Anita has or had one strict human friend Elena had one human boyfriend who she dumped and Kitty has her family but the werewolves and vampires get play The characters who are supposedly outsiders are actually part of the in group of the novel In those novels in terms of characters strict humans are the minority and very rarely do central characters behave as if they have been effected by an ism they might have to hide but outright discrimination doesn t really seem to occur or should it like in Kitty Takes a Holiday it lacks depth Benighted Lola is part of the minority It effects her whole life It effects her outlook on life It effects her relationships Benighted is in a basic sense a mystery Lola wants to find a murderer The book however transcends that It transcends the basic werewolf or vampire plot What the reader gets and this is what makes the book an uncomfortable read is the effect of discrimination on the minority and the majority Whitfield asks and answers what happens in a caste system While the minority in the book is based on a lack of transformation Lola could be any minority in today s real world On top of the theme of discrimination Whitford examines the role of law and justice in such a society Lola is not an angel she is particularly unlikable I do not even know how I feel about her Lola is a real character and this means she is heavily flawed What is important and what makes the book though provoking is that the reader is never shown which side is right not really Do Lola and her co workers go too far Do the lunes go too far The book leaves the reader with a feeling of disuiet because of the uestions about society race and social class that it raises Additionally Whitfield has really thought about how her lunes would work and what the laws of society would be in terms of applying to them at least in furry form She is the only writer I have seen who takes a woman s monthly cycle into account and how it would be affected by changing Benighted is not an easy book and it is true that Whitfield s prose could be tighter in places but it is a worthy thought provoking book

Nown as barebacks and live as victims of prejudice and oppression All too often they are targets of savage mauling and death by lunes who break the law to roam free on full moon nightsTwenty something bareback Lola Galley is already a veteran of the Department for the Ongoi.

READ Bareback

Ng Regulation of Lycanthropic Activities When her friend loses a hand to a marauding lune then is murdered before the attacker is brought to trial Lola is desperate to see justice prevail But the truth is seldom simple and Lola may not like the shocking answers she uncovers. In a world where werewolves or lycos as they are called in this debut novel are the norm and barebacks or nons in other words people that do not turn at the full moon are considered disabled or crippled born with a birth defect that means they come out headfirst and different Lola May is a social outcast As a non she is forced to work as a dog catcher for DORLA the organisation responsible for policing the activity of lunes lycos during full moon for the two days of the month that they become wild animals who will attack and kill anything For the rest of the month she is a lawyer dealing with for the most part tramps and homeless people who have not managed to get themselves locked away in time before changingThis all sounds very sci fi very Buffy the Vampire Slayer but this book is so much than that By turning the werewolf tale on its head we are put into the shoes of the persecuted the outcasts a place where I as a white middle class girl am not usually placed It is well written exciting interesting thrilling and you really care what happens It is intriguing and I would highly recommend it
