Just finished Book 2 of this series and plan to go right to Book 3. Kind of like a zombie tale where an infectious disease is spreading through the world but your turning the population into werewolves not zombies. Very fast paced and great characters - both wolves and humans
Just a great series. Hard to put this book down. No fluff, no indecisive protagonists. Exactly what you’d think a werewolf apocalypse would be like. Great storytelling and great writing. It’s rare when you get both. If you’re looking for romance and happy endings, this isn’t it. If you want a great realistic story that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time, buy it.
I though that the first book in this series took me on a wild ride, well this was not different. Lol. This book picks up from the first and just WOW! What an amazing read! We have Leanna and her Wolf Brothers our resident Villainess. Liz, the policewoman, what is really going to happen and can she handle it? James, can he really be good? So many things happening in this next book and I enjoyed every single gory, bloody moment. This is Mr. Morris's 2nd book and I must say it is as well written, if not better than the first! I cannot say enough and I am not going to spoil it for those who have not read it yet. However, you do need to read the first one in order to understand the Lycanthropy virus and Leanna's mad plan to infect all humans and takeover the world. The Government's involvement to try and stop this madness and everything in between. I an an avid lover of Wolves and this was just on the right side of mad, vicious and evil for me to completely and totally stay in love with them, Lol. An awesome 5 star read!! I cannot wait for what happens next!
I received an advanced copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Wolf Moon: The Rise of the Werewolves is the second installment in the apocalyptic werewolf series Lycanthropic. It picks up right where Wolf Blood: The Werewolf Apocalypse Begins left off. The author stayed true to the spirit of the first book - this is a horror, gore filled, take no prisoners apocalyptic werewolf series. Story is told from multiple points of view of characters, both werewolf and human. Everyone's favorite villain from the first book, Leanna, has built up her rag tag team of werewolf warriors and is plotting in her evil lair to take over the world. Meanwhile, some characters are choosing to stay behind and fight or are forced to stay behind for personal reasons while others are trying to flee. Other characters are brought in as well to portray other views of the events, to include government officials. The author continues to portray the human side of the werewolves as he had in the first book. Likewise, the author reminds readers that even though an apocalyptic event is going on, life goes on for some people - teenagers fall in puppy love, guys do everything they can to impress a girl they like, children still care for their ailing elders. Unlike the first book, at times, I felt like the story telling was a bit slow and it wasn't quite clear to me why certain characters were as much of a focus at times as others. I still very much enjoyed the book and highly recommend it for readers who have read the first book or are looking for a good apocalyptic horror series featuring werewolves. Looking forward to seeing what comes next.
