My Review:
Rise of the werewolf, was everything you would expect, and a little bit more, it was a little Gory for my taste, however the author didn't go overboard with the amount of violence, and any violence was kept to a descriptive minimum. One of the thing I loved about this book was it's originality, they are tons of books about werewolves and vampires, but never one like this. This book combines werewolves with with action, heroism, and many other were-creatures never even though of! This combination is what made this book so special.
Rating: B
Why: Rise of the werewolf was surprisingly original, and had a moderate plot speed, this combined with notion of were-creatures made the book very enjoyable.

What to expect?
  • Werewolves
  • Action
  • Claw on Claw battle
  • Menacing Royalty
