There are a lot of MORFS stories. This is one of the best. There is a sequel underway, which greatly reduces my only criticism of the story, the way it ends. I don't want to go into more detail, it might spoil book one for you.

It's about a boy, bullied and assaulted in high school, who gets MORFed and becomes a wolf primal. For discussions of what these terms mean, read the story. Now a girl (MORFS apparently often changes the sex of its victims), a very big girl, she gets back at bullies and others who attack her. Most of the story is how she adjusts to her new life. There is some romance. It's an easy story to get immersed in. It moves along well. There are twists and turns in the plot as the heroine meets and loses contact with lots of characters. I am going to give the plot a ten. I didn't reduce that for the ending although I thought about it.

Technically it's good, I didn't see any problems so it's a ten as well. Appeal to Reviewer is an eight. That's what the voting public has awarded. Remember, six is average (think a grade of C), seven is good (think B) and eight is an A (very good). If each integer increase is a standard deviation from the mean, only about 16% of all stories are higher than a seven, and only a few percent are over an eight. Perhaps scores are not normally distributed, but I understand the management adjusts raw scores to make the average score a six. There are very few nines and while ten is theoretically possible, no story has recorded that score in the nearly 16 years and over 36,000 stories SOL has been around.

Plot: 10 | Technical Quality: 10 | Appeal to Reviewer: 8
