When 36-year-old lecturer Martin meets the mysterious Lucas at a neighbour’s midsummer party, the attraction is instant and hot. The two men soon start a relationship, but Martin is puzzled by Lucas’ behavior. He’s not like any other man he’s ever known – indeed sometimes he hardly seems human at all – and Martin wants to find out why.
But when one autumn night, he tracks Lucas to the depths of the local park, he realizes more eye-opening truths about his new lover and the pack of strange wolves he runs with than he’d ever before thought possible.
“This is an amazing story about Martin, a university lecturer, and Lucas, a somewhat wild and definitely unusual designer … I loved the message of this story: what counts in a relationship between any two “beings” isn’t how they look, nor necessarily what DNA they carry, or what they behave like. The focus in examining whether we can have a relationship with someone, and accept who and what they are, should be on how they relate to us, what they mean to us, and how they treat us. A very powerful message indeed!” [From a review at Queer Magazine Online]
“This gracefully written story handles the novelette length just fine, delivering an absorbing opposites-attract story warmed by understated humor.” [From a review at Obsidian Bookshelf]
