I took a chance on this book and lost. Just a ridiculous narrative of violence and unconnected scenarios devoid of any semblance of plot or character development. No suspense. No flow of one scene to another. Just raw violence without a hint that the author had any goal other than to write a book.
This book had potential. Just the fact that it was not a love story lent to its power. However, the wolves were weak. They had strength but but were killed to easily and mundane things hurt them. They had no regenerative capabilities. In other words, there was no chance of them taking over except in a country were fire arms were scarce and illegal. Most Americans would have a great chance of taking them out! Most novice hunters would have a chance to take out a pack at a time. I’ll read the next one to see if there is a twist that would Change this. If there isn’t, I don’t think I’ll read the next two.
I love a good werewolf tale & this one starts off fast in the forests of Romania. Then the scene switches to London, where the werewolves are trying to take over, there & everywhere. I liked Liz, the lady cop but the rest of the other characters didn't do much for me. So I didn't care if they got horribly eaten or not. People are aware something is wrong & don't know what. But with werewolves running all over, no one has a decent picture for the news? I wanted to like this book more than I did. I'll look at Book #2 and see if I like it more.
It’s a decent read. The story is a nice turn on the Zombje Apocalypse theme, but not the most imaginative. It certainly isn’t a masterpiece, but a fun read if you’re into End of the World People vs. Monsters stories.
