As a werewolf, Kieran Woodsmith’s career options are limited. Luckily, he can howl in tune, and his voice earns him admission to the prestigious Juilliard School of Music. Desperate to prove to his family that his admission wasn’t a fluke, Kieran auditions for the Broadway Musical Review. But when he meets an upperclassman with no scent and strange violet eyes, Kieran is thrown off his game.

On the eve of his lunar cycle, Kieran’s friend drags him to a party at the purple-eyed senior’s house. Distracted by the mystery of Brett’s missing smell, Kieran forgets about the moon. When he wakes up in a cage in Brett’s basement, Kieran realizes he’s not the only one who is more than he appears.

This is a short story about a werewolf freshman Julliard student named Kieran. He goes to a party and meets an incubus and they become boyfriends.

I didn’t really get this story much at all. I appreciated the world-building but there was never really a climax and from what I understand the incubus, Brett, can’t really have a boyfriend so I didn’t feel good about them connecting.

The POV is first person present-tense, not my favorite, and it was a bit hard to enjoy in this story.

All in all I didn’t care much for this story.
