Review

Praise for THE LAST WEREWOLF trilogy:

The cleverest literary horror merchant since Bram Stoker

(The Times)

A sexy, blood-spattered page-turner (NICK CAVE)

Like an updated version of Dracula, only for werewolves, and as rewritten by Bret Easton Ellis (Guardian)

Sexy, funny, blisteringly intelligent (The Times)

Loaded with beautifully constructed lunatic ravings . . . A sublime study in literary elegance. It is bloody (and) brilliant (Independent on Sunday)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Marvellous 7 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Once more Glen Duncan has produced a brilliant novel to end the trilogy that began with the Last Werewolf and continued with Tallula Rising. Each novel stands alone as a great read from start to finish and By Blood we Live is no exception. The pace is fast and the effect is un-put-down-able.
I am personally offended that no major broadsheet took the time to assign a highly paid literary reviewer to read this book and give it the high praise it is due. The story is exciting the characters are finely portrayed with the usual excellence and finely delineated nuances that we come to expect as the norm from this my no means ordinary author . But let it be said that the emotional depth the whole world difference expressed in words is not something that readers get every day. Its a sham that no counterpart to the Oscars is given to authors of the style and sheer skill of Glen Duncan, As a reader you care passionately about the fate of these what would be conventionally speaking anit-heroes, but believe me any one with a sensibility modern or otherwise wants to know how and what will happen to Tallula, Walker Justine and primarily and so stunningly, in this volume, the vampire Remshi. This is literary fiction of the highest order and should be respected and read and reread as such. I can't recommend this work highly enough and urge all readers to do so, and if they haven't already seek out the American and British hardback editions of the first two novels of this marvellous trilogy and read then again from the beginning. At a time when book publishing in conventional formats is in some way threatened by new technology here we have a wonderful book to be treasured always as it should, as long as there are writers writing the highest quality work there will be, me among them readers eager to share and cherish these offerings. More power to Gen Duncan! I am impatient for the next work whatever it may be. I know it will be of the best kind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great 2 July 2014
By TonyD TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in this trilogy, so read this with a sense of high anticipation, and in many ways it didn't disappoint, leading up to a (fairly predictable) conclusion of sorts and leaving the door wide open for further developments. Duncan swaps between characters to relate each chapter from their own perspective, and that I like very much. The main characters are drawn well and you can certainly feel an empathy with both the werewolf (Tallulah) and the vampire (Remshi) but I felt that many of the supporting players were pretty one-dimensional. Many of the 'hide/chase/escape (or not)' sequences are repeated right out of the second book in the series, and I have to say that I found the constant sexual references unnecessary and in some instances even detracting from the narrative, but the violence (certainly not for the squeamish) is well handled with a leavening of wry humour to take the edge off what would otherwise be a relentless gore-fest.
So, in summary; glad I read it, but could have been better and felt a bit rushed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the squeamish 17 Feb 2014
By Anne TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
In this third book of the series which started with "The Last Werewolf" the author concentrates more on vampires - especially on Remshi who is over twenty thousand years old, but he changes viewpoints between vampire and werewolf characters to tell a number of different stories in the same narrative.

This is a novel about so many things - violence, revenge, persecution, fear, and love to name but a few. Remshi is seeking out Tallula (see "Tallula Rising" the second book in the series) because he believes that she is the reincarnation of his lost love. Tallula is trying to keep herself and her children alive whilst acknowledging that she doesn't love her companion Walker. The forces of the Roman Catholic church are persecuting werewolves and vampires alike. Someone has found the cure for the werewolf disease but it may be worse than the condition. Remshi is having strange dreams and blackouts. Justine is adjusting to her new life as a vampire but also trying to tie up the ends of the old one. Linking it all together is a poem written by Robert Browning.

This is an ambitious book told in robust prose. The author tries to convey to the reader the attraction of eating flesh and drinking blood, how these earthy desires are connected with other passions such as sex, and the accommodation with morality that supernatural people have to make - this book is not "Twilight" or anything close and should not be read by the squeamish. The story is brutal in places and the violence is graphically described. At times you begin to wonder if it is a bit too much and then the author inserts an amusing snippet or a piece of glorious descriptive writing and you are immersed again in his vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars The man's a genius 12 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
This is a brilliant conclusion to the trilogy that began with The Last Werewolf and continued with Tallula Rising, each one delving slightly deeper into the werewolf myth. I would definitely advise reading them first before coming to this, as a number of plotlines are continued and expanded upon. I don’t want to say too much about the plot, as there are so many twists and turns that anything I did say would give something away but needless to say, there are plenty of werewolves and vampires, a religious group of soldiers dedicated to eradicating them from the world, chases, gun fights and killings, all linked together by Duncan’s sublime prose. He has a way with words that should make most other writers just give up. Don’t worry if you don’t like horror – I’m not a massive fan myself, but Duncan is first and foremost a great writer of literary fiction (see Hope, Love Remains and A day, a night and a day for examples) and he brings that tone to this set of books. The book is populated with the most interesting characters, who deliberate on popular culture, classic literature and, of course, the meaning of it all. It’s a strange experience to find yourself siding with a werewolf and almost (almost!) beginning to think there may be some truth in all this. One difference with this book compared to the first two is the number of first person narrators employed – you get to delve into the thoughts of vampires in depth for the first time, as well as humans and werewolves. And each of them is an amazingly distinct, articulate character you look forward to hearing from again.

Glen Duncan is a genius. For me, he is the most talented writer working in Britain today and yet he seems largely unknown.
