Wolfman: Apocalypse by Brannan Black

Interesting plot development on the common “paranormal” theme of the shapeshifters; more than shapeshifters, Mace and his fellow pack are trans-breed, they caught a virus that turns human into half-wolf, men with claws and fangs, and with the more animal instincts than human. The virus was more virulent in men than women and so, years later, almost all men are infected while women need to be protected from them. Some men are immune, like Daniel, and being the only 100% man available in the city is the dream of most straight guys, trouble is that Daniel is gay. When he is captured by Mace’s pack, and faced with a choice, being the sex toy of all the pack or being Mace’s lover and working for the pack as “techy” busboy, the choice is not so difficult, above all since Mace is not a selfish lover, and despite all, Daniel is attracted by him.

There a certain level of non con sex, mostly not “realized”, meaning that Daniel is threatened, but when he has sex with Mace, he is willing. Sure, the sex is not kind or gentle, and Daniel comes out with bruises, it’s sex on the edge, but it’s an edge that Daniel seems able to manage. The virus that Mace and the other caught, makes them very instinctual, with primordial needs, and if someone tries to “escape” them, they see it like prey, like something they have to haunt. That the output of the haunt is not always kill but sex, that maybe is the remaining of their human existence.

Apocalypse is a first chapter in the Wolfman series, and I think Daniel’s story is not complete; there are some secrets in Daniel and Mace’s past that are not yet unveiled, but at least their new relationship is settle, they have a some sort of agreement, and agreement that, in a way or the other, is profitable for both of them.
