West Chatham was a quiet town, sleepily wrapped up in its suburban comforts. It was a place where everyone knew that every day would play out to the same familiar melody, and every night would shroud them in tranquil silence. It was a simple town, with simple people living simple lives- or so it seemed from the outside looking in. Until the day came when dozens of mauled ...more

If you would have told me I would read a book about Werewolves I would have told you --"don't think so". But-I read this because I received it free as a giveaway. I really, really enjoyed it. It was fun and had a story and read fast--everything I like about books. I am going right now to look up more by Joe Mikolay. Thanks for turning me on to this type of story.

This book was not what I expected! I really enjoyed it from front to back, and I hope to find more from this author. There were some scenes that were hard to read, but not because of how they were written, but because of the subject matter. If you can get through some intense scenes, this book is a great read!

Not expecting to love it! ( But I did )

Ok, there's a lot going on in a relatively simple plot. There's the past history, the present drama, and a hopeful future. Sure, there's the teenage drama but what would you expect from a teenage protagonist? It's joyously graphic; utilizing the canine preferred method of "going for the gory middle" is a nice, gross touch......I mention it because there is A LOT of carnage!

So, I give this review a solid 4.5. I read a good ole werewolf story every once in a

Awesome book

Very well written, unusual in that it's a bloody version of an alpha gone rouge with no clear sense except lots of violence. I found d myself hoping the father
would make it with the son yet ....So many avenues left to explore through so many eyes of the characters. Just a well thought out book about the way it is in some
lives with some monsters not everything sparkles in the sun forward it's tail to see you.............great book buy it you'll love it to

Excellent read

Great story line and vivid details. I encourage everyone who love werewolves books to check this one out. A secret race that felt they were gifted but met their match in the end.

Predictable

Although the story line was pretty predictable, this was a pretty terrific werewolf book. Book two should prove to be really good

Very surprised by this book. Just what the werewolf genre needs. It was a well written story, paced perfectly, and very developed characters. A great read cover to cover.
