Wow, loved this one so much more than the first.
Nick Lupo is much more in control this time around. Loaded with werewolf attacks/battles, sex, and a bunch of great characters, Wolf's Gambit is worth your time and money!

This guy's like Ray Garton in that he can build an exciting story on an old monster formula by making the story involving. Great characters!

Some people in the area believe there's wild animals on the loose and they are afraid because it's savagely tearing its victims apart. But Nick Lupo knows better. He knows a werewolf attack when he sees one. He is after all, a werewolf himself; though he's learned to control his urges and maintain his secret with the help of a few close friends.

In the second Nick Lupo werewolf story, there have been some vicious killings, that look like they were done by a wild animal. Nick finds out there are others like him out there. With a lot more sex in this one - due to one of the other werewolf's sexually charged appetite when he is in human form. Damn, he made me wish I was a werewolf!:)
With Nick still trying to control the "creature" (as he calls it), brings back the werewolf tale, in an exciting and thrilling read.

One of the best werewolf books I've ever read

I'm not a big fan of quadruped werewolves, however I really was taken in by his style of writing and how he advances characters.

Interesting characters, a good story line, a little repetitive at times, but over all, an enjoyable read. Would read other books by W.D. Gagliani.
