Glen Duncan’s take on the werewolf mythology, is gritty, violent and over sexed. Jake Marlowe is the last werewolf alive, with the pending extinction of his new race will he give up? The tone and voice Duncan has created is almost perfect, making this an interesting take on the genre. It is nothing like the popular style of werewolves in the paranormal genre, this is dark but too heavy on his libido. It focusing on the conflict within Jake; is he a man or is he a monster and his will to live a life like this or to give up. This book is an existential horror, nicely played out and nothing like YA werewolves. The different forces within Jake Marlowe is what makes this book worth reading, not the sex or violence.

♥Xeni♥ Hmm... I think your review might have just rescued werewolves for me!

If I ever feel a shifter urge come upon me, I'll need to read this! <3

Michael Werewolves and vampires have been destroyed, so it's good to read something dark
