I've not previously read a Wyndhma Werewolf Tale, so I came into DERIK'S BANE with no preconceptions. I enjoyed the story, the characters, and the typical MaryJanice Davidson wit, although I did find the ending (which happened in about two pages) a wee bit far-fetched.

Derik Gardner, hottie and member of the Wyndham Pack, has recently been feeling a little out of sorts. When he loses control one morning and gets into it with alpha Michael Wyndham (his leader and best friend since childhood), he realizes that something has to change.

And change they do. Derik has been informed that the reincarnation of Morgan La Fay, great sorceress and sister to King Arthur, not to mention historically believed to be a betrayer of a nation, has now taken the body of spunky, cute nurse with a doctorate Sara Gunn. His mission? "Take care of" Ms. Gunn, and prevent her from destroying the world.

Sara is a little perturbed by Derik's arrival on her doorstep, but no more so than she was by the guys in red monk's robes who tried to kill her at the hospital where she works later that day. It seems strange things are always happening to her, but her "luck", as she calls it, in turn causes weird things to happen to the bad guys.

As Derik attempts to take care of Sara by killing her, he realizes that he, superior body be damned, can't hurt her. So if you can't beat 'em, you join 'em, right? Sara and Derik set off cross-country to Salem, Massachusetts, where the sect of King Arthur resides, determined to save the world from destruction.

DERIK'S BANE is a fun, enjoyable read. In typical MJD style it's got passion, hilarious dialogue, a yummy hero, and a spunky heroine. What it lacks is a truly believable ending (Sara KICKS the baddie to destroy it), but overall this is a fun way to spend an afternoon.

A quick read that's the standard MJD with a mouthy heroine, hunky hero and unbelievable events in between. I liked it overall, but think I'm getting burned out on all of her books having characters who all seem to have the same personalities. It gets old after awhile. The ending felt a bit rushed with the "battle" scene and the epilogue was a little lame, but after reading so many MJD books, it's about what I've come to expect from this author. It makes me really glad I just used a PBS credit to get this book!

I loved this book. I love her Betsy series but I think that this one was better. I really have not liked her novelas or even her Fred the mermaid series but I like the Wyndam werewolves! I thought that the end was so funny!

Humorous romance - a psychic predicts the end of the world - unless Derek (who happens to be a werewolf) saves it. He meets with the cause of the end of the world - Dr. Sara Gunn and immediately falls for her. A classic road trip ensues...

Werewolf Derik Gardner is told by a psychic that the world will end soon unless he does something about it. So he heads to California on a mission to destroy the reincarnation of Morgan Le Fay. The reincarnated sorceress is now Dr. Sara Gunn, a beautiful woman who has no idea that she is Morgan Le Fay. Derik doesn't like the idea of killing her, but he'll do it for his pack. But, each time he tries, he doesn't meet with success. Sara Gunn is one of the luckiest women in the world.

This was a cute paranormal romance. I enjoyed the humor in this story. This is the only book I've read in this series. I liked it much better than Davidson's Queen Betsy series. My rating: 4 Stars.
