Fourteen-year-old Trey Laporte is not a kid anymore. Not after the day he wakes up in agony—retina-splitting, vomit-inducing agony. His clothes are torn. His room is trashed.
Enter Lucien Charron, the mysterious, long-lost “uncle” with freakish fire-flecked eyes and skin that blisters in the sun. Suddenly, Trey finds himself living in a luxury penthouse at the heart of a st

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.
Lucien Charron is a man of mystery, and not all quite what he seems. He convinc

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
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
lost the the assignment guide so I'm putting just answers. I will redo this later if i can. Kinda confused about this project still.

A: Trust, Faith, not everything is what it seems

2. Q: In what ways do the events in the book reveal evidence of the author's world view?

What was interesting about the book?

I found some of the myths about werewolves that weren't actually true to be interesting. The book also talked a lot about the lack of control a werewolf has over his body once he transforms, which to me was very interesting.

What did you like about the book?

I really liked the characters in this novel. They had interesting personalities and I feel they would good in a movie.

Would you recommend this book to others?

I would honestly recommend this book to anyone. I

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
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.

Trey Laporte is a normal teenager or at least he thinks he is. That all changes one morning when he wakes up to find his room trashed and mysterious Lucien Charron shows up claiming to be his unc
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 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
What this book really needs badly is pacing. Events come and go as quickly as they start and tend to hold no ground. Everything is fairly choppy and the lack of relation between future and preceding events makes this quite a loose novel. This wouldn't be that bad but the plot if fairly simplistic and predictable.

characters are fairly flat and un-interesting. The constant fixation on trays past get really tiring, especially when the author only seems to focus on how tray's parents died. It's the
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

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
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.

By the time we find out the big

The Good: The opening scene of this novel was overall intriguing. It kept pulling you farther into those first pages. It story had good pace towards the beginning keeping you drawn in by answering long standing questions. The world created by author, Steve Feasey, was unique, mysterious, and compelling. Trey the main character is very relatable and kind. The internal battles he goes through are written beautifully. The minor characters, as well, have well developed personalities. The occasional ...more
Kristen My Bookish Fairy Tale
A nicely written paranormal YA novel. Steve captured the essence of being a Werewolf well. I enjoyed his character's and story line. A different take on the Vampire/Werewolf relationship. I rather enjoyed the spin that Steve took on it.

I thought that Trey's character was well written. The loneliness and despair that Trey felt throughout the book came through in volumes. I really enjoyed Lucien as well. I thought that he took over his role as Trey's guardian well. He is very protective and I bel

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.

To me, this boo
Leanne Bell
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.

Last night, 14-year-old Trey Laporte went to bed a ward of the state, but at least normal, and today he wakes up to his room in shambles, a mysteriously rich Uncle Lucien he had never heard of, and finds out he is a werewolf!

It took me about seventy pages before I really could get into this one. Mainly those first seventy or so pages introduces you to the characters and lays the groundwork for what has happened. In itself this was fine, but what bugged me w
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.

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

Recommends it for: anybody who likes adventure and the supernatural
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.

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.

I chose this book because I have a interest in werewolves and the art on the front cover was cool.This book was recommended by a member of my family who also finds werewolves interesting.

The book follows Trey, the main character who eventually discovers that he is a werewolf. The only pure blood still in existence. He is helped on this journey by his new vampire mentor Lucien Charon and the big tough guy Tom Callaghan, one of the few humans that I came across in this book. This new family is try

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.

Characters: Trey seems like
Trey lives at a group home for foster kids, and he has just woken up from a weird night - he's locked in his room from the inside, the room has been destroyed, and he has no memory of anything happening. The head of the group home is about to pack him off to the mental hospital when Trey receives a vistor from a man claiming to be his uncle.

Since Trey has no family, he knows this strange man isn't his uncle... and he suspects the man called Lucien is not even human. Sure enough, Lucien has some
WOW what a ride - full of HIGH adventure, scary beings, and when you think you can't take it anymore, some one busts out with a joke and you find yourself laughing...

The story is gripping, I read it in less than a few hours, it had me turning page after page - and now, I am off to Book Depo because I can order the other 2 books in the UK additions because why wait for the story to continue - when I can read them now.

Amazing book, with rich character's who can not love Trey and Lucien reminds me
