Bareback

Ng Regulation of Lycanthropic Activities When her friend loses a hand to a marauding lune then is murdered before the attacker is brought to trial Lola is desperate to see justice prevail But the truth is seldom simple and Lola may not like the shocking answers she uncovers. Benighted is not a book to start with false expectations If you are looking for a story which focuses on the fantasy elements and worldbuilding or a supernatural drama this is not the book for you Benighted is depressing as all get out and that needs to be understood going inIts protagonist and narrator is Lola Galley a bareback in a world filled with lycanthropes Barebacks a derogatory term for non lycanthropes or nons are conscripted at a young age into DORLA the organization which runs the world during the full moon and which handles crimes committed by people while they are transformed DORLA is generally disliked by the public because of the power they wield and since all nons are by default DORLA employees this results a good deal of friction between the tiny non population and the rest of the world All of this is important but it s not the heart of the storyWhat makes this book worth reading is its complete emotional realism Lola despite being only in her twenties is run down and older than she should be She s paid very little money for doing a very dangerous job and has no real prospects for improving her situation She distrusts everyone outside of DORLA and they distrust her in kind The book is along with being an engaging mystery a chronicle of her experience as both a perpetual outsider and a member of a highly insular organization of dubious ethical standards She lives through things that are less than palatable and over the course of the story herself does some things which are arguably worse The psychology is fascinating and drives a thoroughly engrossing plot If you can stomach the depression absolutely worth reading
