J. A. Belfield’s Top 5 Were-Animals

About Unnatural

Unnatural. One word to sum up werewolf Kyle Larsen—his mood swings, abnormal body, and choice of female.

The first two, he blames on the vampire venom.

The third, though? No, feline shifter Brook Nicholls was all his doing—a female of whom the pack will never approve.

As part of the Coalition, an organisation with even stricter rules than the pack and a rigidly warped sense of responsibility, Brook comes with a whole lot of opposition of her own.

No wonder the two of them keep their relationship secret for as long as they can.

Now, distanced from his family by his own indiscretions, Kyle’s left to fight battles he’s unsure how to win—some of them even against his own pack.

Is one woman really so important that he’s willing to defy his Alpha for her?

If his heart has any say in the matter, the answer will be yes.

Top 5 Were-Animals

Now, in all honesty, I’ve never actually met any Weres, but that doesn’t stop my imagination doing a decent job of conjuring them. I think, for me, the appeal is in the double identity—in getting to experience two totally different sides of a life, or of two lives, if we’re being pedantic.

So, based on this, I’m going to list five Were-Animals that I think are, or could be, cool.

Weredragon – Now, don’t all jump on me. I’m more than aware that I’ve linked two myths, but anyone who wants to argue about dragons being real can go find themselves a fantasy lover and hash out the issue. But me? I’m talking in hypotheticalness (pretend it’s a word). Imagine a tough-skinned, FIERY HOT, witty—‘cause those dragons have got a sense of humour, right?—male … and turn him into a beautiful flying machine with not only enough strength to take you on some pretty epic rides, but to defend you like a flame thrower whilst doing so? Tell me now that you don’t fancy a piece of that.

Weresnake – I don’t know of any weresnakes—never met one. don’t know of any weresnakes in books, either. But I think turning into a big-a$$ python with equally bad-a$$ fangs, one that most suckers with a brain would be terrified of, could have its benefits—depending on the line of work of said weresnake, of course. Dual body temperatures for differing circumstance … ability to taste fear … oh, aye, I’m selling this to even myself. 😉

Werebear – Other than the fact of the name being pretty cool, if I was a wearbear, no sucker’d mess with me. A brutish body that can pack a punch. Claws that could rip out a jugular in a single swipe. Not to mention I could catch my own salmon—by PAW! Yeah, werebear? Therebear—likely in one of my future books.

Werecat – They’re sleek and stunning, fast at running, and waaaaaaaaaay smarter than anyone gives them credit for. Yep, it’s the werecat.

Werewolf – Well, come on, you had to know it’d be at my top stop. Anyone who knows me knows I think werewolves are the coolest of the lot. Heightened instincts, heightened senses, heightened strength and abilities—not to mention taking all those and experiencing the forest in the beautiful body of a wolf. This is easily the best were out there, by miles.
If you had the chance to meet—or to be—a were-animal, which animal would you choose?

  1. Just love the idea of a weredragon, but I’m not sold on a weresnake. Snakes creep me out. **shivers**

  2. A Weresnake is a new one for me. Kind of like that idea. In fact, that’s what I’d be if I could. Fun post. I’ve seen this book around lately and want to give it a read!

  3. I’d be pretty thrilled to know/be a werefox! A variety of werebirds could be awesome, too — wereowl, werehawk, werepenguin… c’mon, you know I had you at werepenguin. ;D
