Benighted by Kit Whitfield

A very good and surprising werewolf novel, though I may find it surprising mostly because I don't generally read werewolf novels. I've tended to dismiss them as erotica for people with odd fantasy lives since glancing over some by Laurell K. Hamilton and the like.

This was more an extended meditation on prejudice, on how it warps. The main character was a normal non-lycanthropic human, a tiny, despised minority in her world. By the end, I think I identified more with the lycanthropes.
