Prowlers, animals that masquerade as men...

Christopher Golden has created a story that recreates werewolf mythology in a fresh, new mold. No curse, no magic, these guys are beasts that have evolved to imitate people. I was hooked by the idea and stayed hooked all the way through to the last page.

Golden has injected these beasts into his story-world that includes the Body of Evidence YA crime thillers. Boston is the backdrop, familiar places and characters pop up from the previous series into thi

Excellent new twist on the otherwise tired werewolf genre.
Christopher Golden has the magic touch when it comes to creating characters. They immediately become so real and emotional. There is an instantaneous connection for the reader. No exceptions here.
Jack, Molly, Artie, Courtney, Bill and even Kate, become the readers friends. And, suffer equally through the dangers, the battles, the heartache, the loss, the anger and the love. Even the antagonist are nicely developed. Perfectly loathsome,

After finishing PROWLERS, the first book in this series by Christopher Golden, the only question I have is why it's proclaimed to be a young adult read. I guess it's because the main character, Jack Dwyer, is nineteen--but besides their age, there's nothing about this book that would make it strictly for young adult readers!

Jack's life is pretty predictable. Ever since the death of his mother in a car accident that also injured his sister, Courtney, the two ha

Christopher Golden’s "Prowlers" reshaped my perspective for it’s unique and descriptive words along with an exotic climax. Jack wants revenge, but the prowlers are thirsty for blood.

The author illustrates a theme that most other writers don’t, and it is to keep your friends close and never let them go. I say this because the main character Jack loses his best friend Artie. Golden’s style of writing is very distinct not like many other authors, I love his rare descriptive words that keeps the

This is one of my favourites, its not too magical and has just the right amount of gruesome and ghostly eeriness that i crave for, nice detailing in the different locations, and has me wishing to read faster to find out what happens but also has me wanting to read slower to imagine it more! I fell for jack within the first few lines he entered the book, and that love stayed throughout the books, and the intricate relationship between him and molly, his best friend artie is one i get excited ...more

This was an interesting take on shifters, one that I wish would have been explained better. What did save the story for me was Jack, Artie, and Molly. These kids didn't act like kids and when push came to shove stood to take care of things. Jack and Molly took some hard hits, yet they fought back. I really like the way things seem to be headed for them. Bill and Courtney were interesting too and I loved that when Jack started spilling his secrets they didn't automatically think he was crazy.

I really enjoyed this book. I cannot give a better review than that of Jennifer Wardrip, so I'll refer you there.

The characters were very easy to relate to, the storyline was interesting and the Prowlers were wild. Loved Jack, his friendships, his family, his story!

This was four books in one, with a continuing story. I am surprised I got to the end of book two before giving up, but really couldn't be bothered with books 3 and 4, as I just couldn't connect with the characters. It seemed like every battle the good side had with the bad side was the same just with different badies - BORING!

Read the whole series and this is a firm favourite of mine. Great series with a fresh twist on the old werewolf ideas. Where many books about werewolves are tiresome and samey this one feels different, a bit more exciting. The story is easy to follow but there's plenty of surprises too and I enjoyed Golden's style of writing.

Good read

I lucked up on finding this book scanning through titles about werewolves. I've never heard of a prowler but was intrigued. My first read by author Christopher Golden and was very pleased. New, dangerous, and a mystery all wrapped up in this book!!!!
Stacey Schmidt
This was a wonderful, though short lived series, but this first book isn't nearly as good as the other three but you need to read it in order to read the other three next. It's not fabulous, but it's okay. The first half of the book is kinda slow but it gets better after that.

Enjoyable but I found it a bit too depressing to continue reading the series, though when it comes to dealing with depressing books I’m a pansy.
Shawn Manning
Nicely done take on the werewolf mythology. Without giving anything away, there was one scene that really bothered me and that rarely happens with my reading .
