Flora Smith (BookwormFlo) | 91 comments Loved this! as much as the one before it, The Last Werewolf. Talulla Rising doesn't pick up immediately where The Last Werewolf left off. Talulla is almost 8 months pregnant and is starting to have trouble with the pregnancy as well as full moon coming. In the throws of labor she is found by the vampires seeking her blood for the Helios project.

Told in Talulla's point of view, the story sweeps you in and flows like water. Talulla is a strong female character that knows how to take charge and be assertive and fight for her children. Still mourning the loss of Jake, she refuses to give up on life even tho she can't let go of him. There are other strong female characters, some we were intrduced to in The Last Werewolf, like Madeline and Mia. We also are introduced to new characters, some we don't expect to see, who change Talulla's life and the way she sees others.

I love how it shows life as not black and white. Not all the monsters out there have fangs. Humans have such a potential for death and pain, escpecially for those that are different from us or things we don't fully understand. Murdoch and WOCOP is a perfect example of this.

Overall, I loved this one. Anyone that enjoyed The Last Werewolf should continue the story with Talulla Rising. I hated to see the book end. I wanted more and hope there is another book down the line. This is definitely an over 18 book as there is not only violence but alot of sex, but the book is so much more than the sum of its parts. All of it flowed together making each part necessary to complete the picture.
