Drunken Wolves…I Think Not

Moira Rogers is having this contest for a Kindle and I have to chose which team I would want to be on. No, this isn’t a Team Edward or Team Jacob, but it does involve werewolves and vampires. Rogers has two novels coming out over the next couple weeks, Sanctuary Unbound and A Safe Harbor (7.13), and they are wondering who has the potential to be the awesomest – a badass vampire lumberjack or a devious werewolf bootlegger?

Honestly, I’m not sure if I would want to be around a drunk werewolf, I mean, they already have these violative natures due to their wolf half, do we really need to be mixing in alcohol as well? If woman are crazy during their full moon, I don’t think I would want to be around the werewolves. So I’m going to have to go with the vampire lumberjack. What about everyone else? What team would you be on and why?

I’m on Team Vampire. Find out more.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


    • The high metabolism only works if they don’t have a lot to drink in the first place. Even in all the books, a werewolf can still get drunk, it just takes a lot. Something a bootlegger would have access to. *grin*

      Go Vampires – ian

  1. So I know you’ve probably seen all those extensive charts as to exactly why a Werewolf Bootlegger is just plain better than a Vampire lumberjack. For that reason I’m not going to get into all of the obvious ways that the werewolf bootleggers are better, but I will say that it takes a lot to get a drunken werewolf. With their fast metabolisms it’s nearly impossible. Your argument is therefore not applicable. ;P

  2. I agree Jennifer, they seem to be going back to that time and again. Let’s face it werewolf metabolism wins, no drunken werewolves here.

  3. Oh no, drunken and violent? No no. Werewolves are warm, fuzzy, caring and protective. Is an ice cold, blood drinking ghost white vamp better? I think not. Team Werewolf Supporter here! :-)

  4. Jackie, Jackie-one word…splinters-OUCH!
    I am team Werewolf Lumberjack. I know, when you get one of those killer splinters, I’ll send over some moonshine to numb the pain.

  5. I absolutely vote for Team Lumberjack Vampire. He’s sexy, hunky, dangerous, mysterious and demanding. Yum!

  6. I see awesomeness in both. Just because a werewolf’s bootlegging doesn’t mean he’s drinking it- it’s like how ‘good’ drug dealers don’t use their product. But I think vampire lumberjack is appealing because I find that while most vampires are written as good-looking, it almost always seems to be in a kind of feminine way. Delicate, beautiful. A more manly vampire is sorely needed.

  7. I have to say I’m on Team Vampire Lumberjack because they’re still sexy in plaid!

  8. He can’t get drunk though! A fast metabolism–which explains WHY he’s always so warm–would burn up the alcohol. Therefore, our darling werewolf bootlegger couldn’t be drunk.

    Plus, I don’t know why you would want to have sex with a reanimated corpse. Ew!


  9. Everyone’s beating up on the drunken werewolf. Am I the only one who thinks a drunken werewolf would be hilarious? C’mon, not every drunk is a mean drunk. I’m imagining an adorably tipsy werewolf howling with laughter as he chases his own tail in a circle. And what’s not endearing about that?! :)

    Team Werewolf Bootlegger, all the way!

  10. TEAM WEREWOLF BOOTLEGGER for the WIN!!! But did you forget about the werewolf metabolism…? I doubt the werewolf hottie would even get that buzzed! And again I bring up the whole cold and um, DEAD thing that vampires have! ;)

  11. Lily Ghates, I love your vision of the tipsy werewolf howling and chasing his tail.

    I have to vote for the bootlegging werewolf, just because he is a bootlegger doesn’t mean he drinks nor does it mean he gets drunk if he drinks. I was a bartender and I never drank while I was working.

    Besides I’ll take warm or hot over cold and dead anyday, and I’m not a Wolf for nothing got to cheer for my namesake.

  12. I’m too cold for a vampire, I need a nice warm werewolf! And if I get really cold the free booze should warm me right up! Team Bootlegger Werewolf!
