Fourteen year old, Trey Laporte woke up one day with pain radiating through out his entire body, feeling like he was in a train wreck he looked around to see that his room looked the exact same way.
Living in a care house, since he's been orphaned with no family three years ago, Trey was about to be sent to a correction services -aka The Tank- when an unexpected visitor, claiming to be his uncle, has come seeking Trey.

Right from the start I have to say that above all else, reading Wereling has reminded me that trying something different often times ends up being a fantastic idea! Reading a male point of view is not something I'm used to, nor do I usually seek it out. I'm not quite sure why I picked this book up, I know it wasn't the cover (that kind of scared me) but whatever the reason, I'm just glad that I did.

It was a nice change of pace for me and a good break in routine from what I normally read. Feasley

Das Cover ist sehr bunt und somit natürlich auch sehr auffällig. Ich persönlich finde das Cover etwas zu übertrieben - weniger ist manchmal mehr.

Die Charaktere dieses Buches sind echt nicht so das Gelbe vom Ei. Unser Hauptcharakter ist Trey - ein pubertärer 14 Jähriger. Er ist ein Werwolf und versucht meistens der große, tapfere Kerl zu sein - was ihm aber nicht immer geschieht. Dann gibt es da noch Lucien. Er ist ein Vampir und wirkt auf den Leser oftmals imposant und selbstbeherrscht. Seine To

Review by my brother Jake Kirk

This is one of those good news/bad news situations. Wereling is well written with complex characters, imaginative creatures and vivid description. On the other hand, it was slow and lacked action and suspense.

The first 70 to 100 pages sets up the story and that was just too long for me. His uncle has a lot of explaining to do and he takes his time about it. Our hero doesn't even change into a werewolf until half-way through the book.

WERELING is the story of Trey, for all intents and purposes an ordinary boy. Until he isn’t. After one night where he wakes up aching and sick, he is suddenly whisked away by a stranger claiming to be his uncle. All too soon, Trey is living with the reality of vampires, demons and werewolves. The werewolf? Trey. His life? In danger from a power hungry vampire.

WERELING starts off strong. The description is great and Trey’s emotions come through bright and clear. Right from the start, we’re thrown

How I Stumbled Upon this Book
I was browsing through the young adult section of my library, skimming over the titles for something that caught my eye. If it were the title alone, I wouldn't have picked up this book. I'm not really into vampires, werewolves, or other paranormal creatures.

Actually, it was just after I had picked up Fahrenheit 451 that I saw this sitting on top of a stack on the bottom shelf. It should've been invisible to me, yet I pulled it off, looked at the title and scoffed tha

Werewolves...Vampires...Demons...Witches...Sorceresses...Humans..., that is literally all there is to it, apart from the fact that young Trey Laporte discovers he just happens to be a lycanthrope, finding about all sorts of creatures from the netherworld.. but Caliban is the ultimate protagonist, he must be destroyed or humanity will be broken and enslaved by bloodthirsty vampires...

This story filled with Vamps, Werewolf action, and Demons has an amazing and hook-the-reader plot. Right when i saw the cover and read the description I knew I had to read it! It's not one of those Clichè Werewolf stories that reading too many of can be really irksome with the same plot. It's an awesome book so far and deserves more reads! ♡ ^_^ I got the book yesterday and I'm already 3/4 done with the book! XD

As much as i love a paranormal romance, occasionally, i just want to read a good fantasy horror which is, well, different. This book fit that category nicely, and had a few extra intersting points to it that i wasn't expecting.

In summary, Changeling is about a teenage boy called Trey Laporte, who, after his grandmother dies ends up in a care home. Fast-forward a few years and he wakes up in his room one day with the place trashed and the door still locked, with no clue as to how it got that way.

Okay, it's not often I really get into a werewolf book, but this one sucked me in--so much so that I plowed through it in a single afternoon/evening after school. I don't usually write reviews, either, but I have a few things to say about this book.

I thought most of Trey's actions and reactions felt realistic--his reaction to the trashing of his room, his freaking out over finding out about the supernatural world. One thing I didn't find as convincing was how quickly Trey became an adept fighter

Wereling was an action packed story about a fourteen year old boy who is not only an orphan but just happens to be a werewolf. Of course he doesn’t know about his werewolf second nature and as things start to go crazy in his life - in walks someone who claims to be his long lost uncle Lucien, who just happens to have a secret of his own – that he’s a vampire.

I'm not really sure where to start with my review for 'Wereling' by Steve Feasey. I loved it in the beginning. It was so good and had such an amazing build up. It came highly recommended to me so I was expecting more. However, by the end of the book I found myself disinterested. I really liked some of the characters-like Trey-but was completely unaffected by others. At one point, there is a traumatic thing that happens to one of the main characters, but I didn't react to all. I just read ...more

WEREling starts off right in the action. That's my favorite thing so there was no waiting for the hook in this one and I was interested in continuing on right after I started reading. The descriptions within this book are amazing. I kept finding myself looking forward to all of the instances in the book where Trey would have to shift because while reading, I could visualize everything that was going on. Not only the situations with Trey but with everything, including character and location descr ...more
The beginning was kind of interesting introducing a troubled teen. It was nice and interesting description. Liked how Lucian is also introduced into the book.

First of all, when I look at the cover of this book, I thought of the creepy boy on the cover. I thought of the moon behind him. I thought of his eyes. I thought of the full moon. But most of all? I thought of the title.

Wereling. Wereling. This book is something new. It gives a twist to the werewolf tale. It also gives a twist the demon world. Vampires, naturally, pop in time to time. Witches and all that good spells and the bad spells and curses. All those good stuff.

WEREling was one of those books that struck all my sensitive areas at once, so to speak. Shapeshifter hero? Got it. Paranormal conflict? All over it. Blossoming teenage love interest. More, please. Male protagonist who isn't a creep or a bizarrely perfect weirdo? Excellent. The raw material was all there but at the end of the day I found that WEREling had a tough time delivering on its promise.

I think most of my issues stemmed from the erratic pacing of this story. We start off meeting Trey as h

WEREling, by Steve Feasey, is a fast-paced adventure surrounding a fourteen-year-old boy and his supernatural genetics. Trey is thrust into a world of paranormal proportions in a matter of hours he is overwhelmed by a whirlwind of information as he discovers that his life is in grave danger.

When I received this book, I was excited to read another werewolf story, but this book let me down.

Personally I'm not really passionate about reading, especially about books on werewolves, vampires, and magic, but this book might have made me reconsider that thought. Thanks to Steve Feasey, he’s helped me realize that you’re never too old to read books like these. Feasey was able to create a just amount of suspense that made you want to keep reading and made me want to read more after he ended the book with a cliff hanger. Throughout the book, Steve Feasey uses strong choices of diction in or ...more

Wereling was a surprisingly good book. I know that sounds negative but when I started the book I honestly didn't expect to like it. I don't really know why my expectations were so low but as I read the book I realized that they were very wrong. By the time I reached the end I didn't want to stop reading.

I have this issue with rating things two stars.
For me, three stars is 'it was okay' and one is 'loathed it; don't ever pick this up if you value your sanity'. So visually, a two star rating looks bad to me. This explanation is just so you know that this book falls under the category of 'it was okay' but is rated higher for the above reasons.

There's not much to say about this book. (Other than Goodreads really, really didn't want to let me find it. Took forever to pull up the listing.) It's defin

Why I read this: I've been a little into the werewolf books lately and thought I'd give this one a try. It's also a debut novel! :)

Plot: How would you feel if your life was even more messed up than usual? That's how Trey feels when he is pulled out of the group home he was living in and thrown into a world full of vampires, werewolves, and demons. The story is filled with action, learning how to control the wolf inside him, and trying to find a place where he belongs.

Wereling delivered an engaging storyline with detailed and explosive action. Trey, an orphaned teen, wakes up one day to have his whole life turned upside down. His "uncle" Lucien, who is a vampire, revealed to him that he was a werewolf. A lot to swallow in one day right? Trey didn't surprise me by his reaction of wanting to run away, that would be my initial response as well. I enjoyed his realistic behavior and willingness to deal with the crazy changes. Lucien made it his business to protect ...more

“The Ring of Amon,” Lucien answered. “It’s an ancient artifact from the Netherworld. It was believed to have been destroyed a very long time ago. The ring, when used in conjunction with a particular incantation, has the power to change people: It reverses their moral compass, and makes normal people do things that they would never have contemplated before falling under its spell. The ring has the power to unlock all the potential for rage and evil that people have. Normal people—good people—will commit acts of vile butchery on those around them, even those they love and hold dear. We think that Caliban hopes to use the ring to turn humankind against itself. And when he has done so, he wishes to create a vampire dynasty within the realm: a vampire empire with himself as ruler.” 0 likes
