Product Description

Product Description

Werewolves are the myth. Prowlers are the savage reality.

A series of mysterious deaths leads Jack Dwyer and Molly Hatcher to the fastlanes, rest stops, and all-night diners of a highway in upstate New York. Meanwhile, their friend Bill Cantwell heads to Manhattan in search of his missing niece, a fledgling musician with lots of attitude. Back in Boston, Jack's sister, Courtney, is left to hold the fort.

But Jasmine, the sultry Prowler who barely survived her run-in with them in Boston, has begun to build a new pack in New York. When Bill probes the Prowler underground, he finds old friends, secret alliances, and betrayal, and his predicament draws Courtney away from Boston on a quest to make sure the man she loves gets home safely.

To the north, Jack and Molly uncover the truth -- that the pack has grown larger than they could ever have realized. With Prowlers all around them, they must reach out to all of their allies, dead or alive, if they are to save Bill and Courtney and survive the final conflict with Jasmine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding. Best in the series! 27 April 2002
By Jim Lay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've been a fan of Christopher Golden for a long time, every since I read his OF SAINTS AND SHADOWS, but with this Young Adult horror series, I have been hanging on his every word. (Which is funny for a 35 year old.) Each book has been better than the last and with this entry Golden outdoes himself... Jack ("The Giant Killer") Dwyer and his gang-- Courtney, Molly, Artie, Eden, and Bill-- find themselves drawn into a complex web of deceit and terror as Jasmine, the alpha of a huge pack of Prowlers in NY City, looks for revenge against the humans who murdered her lover, Owen Tanzer. By killing Jack-- who has become a kind of living legend, to his surprise-- Jasmine hopes to bring together all the Prowlers across the continent and overthrow humanity once and for all. In the process, however, her grand scheme lauches a war not only between humans and prowlers but pits prowlers against prowlers in a final battle for supremacy. When it's over, nobody will be the same... It's my understanding that this is the last of the series for the forseeable future and it comes as a huge disappointment. Rarely have I become so involved in a series of books and I'll miss all of the characters like old friends. Thanks for the ride, Mr. Golden, it's been a great one. I hope you'll let us revisit Jack and his friends again in the future. In the meantime, I'll continue to buy anything with your name on it!

5.0 out of 5 stars This can't be the LAST one! 29 Aug 2006
By H. Bala - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, here it is. Prowlers: Wild Things - the fourth, and seemingly the last, installment in the very cool Prowlers series by Christopher Golden. As of yet, no plans are being made by Mr. Golden to write of Jack Dwyer's further adventures. But at least the author didn't stinge on this one, as, like the other reviewers, I consider Wild Things to be another excellent entry in the series. If this is the final hurrah for the Dwyer siblings, Molly Hatcher, and good guy prowler Bill Cantwell, it's a fitting one.

To those who've come to the series late or haven't read any of the Prowlers books, prowlers are an ancient, predatory race of monsters who've roamed the earth before man ever set foot on land. Prowlers are what gave rise to the werewolf mythology; they are shapeshifters who can transform to mimic a human, whom they consider to be the height of snacks. But these monsters can be killed by conventional methods (no need for silver bullets); you just have to be very persistent as they do take a lot of killing. Prowlers feel that it's their natural right to own the planet and hold dominion over man (they probably would've appreciated Charles Darwin and his theory, though they, no doubt, would've torn him in half and eaten him anyway).

Prowlers: Wild Things finds the four key characters separated once again as Golden narrates two main plots here (which you just know will converge into one big storyline by the end). On one front, Jack and Molly jeep over to investigate a 30-mile stretch of highway (which Courtney Dwyer dubs "the blacktop Bermuda Triangle") just off upstate New York, which has been the site of many unsolved, vicious attacks. To ferret out prowler activity, Jack and Molly must scour the various rest stops, diners, and stopover hotels.But, of course, why make it easy? The folks they meet aren't all cooperative, and most have something to hide. Jack, once again, must rely on his access to the Ghostlands and Artie and the other lost spirits who dwell there for assistance.

On the other end, Bill Cantwell and uneasy prowler ally Lao go in search of Bill's missing niece Olivia. To do so, they must navigate the heart of New York City, which is now the hunting grounds of the new prowler Alpha Jasmine. Jasmine, in the first step to her grand plan to unite the earth's prowler packs and return the wild to their proper dominance, has begun to amass her army of prowlers. She also still harbors a mighty grudge against Jack Dwyer and company, who have picked up reputations as fearsome werewolf killers.

While the three prior books have been GREAT, Wild Things presents a more sweeping narrative. Jack Dwyer's former exploits have been isolated, insular adventures. This time, ramifications go deep, as each prowler must decide, once and for all, which side it belongs. They must either heed the call of the wild and join Jasmine's pack or champion the underground, a network of law-abiding prowlers who only wish for peace and to co-exist with humanity.

Dangling issues are seemingly resolved, from the love triangle between Jack, Molly, and Artie, to the missing Olivia subplot from the previous book, to the final, grisly showdown between Jack's crew and Jasmine. We also have cameos by Jace Castillo and Eden Hirsch.

This is another intense, adrenalin-pumping, ripping (literally), good read. Bullets fly, claws tear, and teeth flash menacingly, but Jack and Molly, despite their fears and doubts, remain poised and true to the cause throughout. Great characters, cool heroes. Somewhere down the line, I fully expect Christopher Golden to pick up their trail once more and begin filling us in on what we've missed. Until then - good hunting, Jack Dwyer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild Things 27 Nov 2005
By Tyler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Christopher Golden's last placement of the Prowler series is an exciting, high action packed story about shift shapers that change from human form to a sort of dog like monster. In this book Jasmine, the new alpha, is trying to have all Prowlers come together and get the world back to what, she believes, it should be. That Prowlers are known to humans and humans should act as their prey. In the beginning unexplained murders occur down a thirty mile stretch of highway. Jack Dwyer, "The Giant Killer", and Molly Hatcher investigated the scene. Bill, Courtney's boyfriend or otherwise known to the Prowlers as Guillaume Navarre, went upstate to New York where his niece, Olivia, was supposedly kidnapped by Jasmine. Through the book these two conflicts join together and keeps you on the edge of each word until the end.

Wild Things is the best book in the series of four written by Christopher Golden. He has opened a whole new door to suspense and science fiction from his previous writings. This book is also very similar to the movie "Hide and Seek". Both of these entertainment features keeps you on the edge of your seat, locked in the moment.

All those suspense readers out there, this is the book you need to read. Every page will keep you entranced in the book; your eyes will never want to leave the page till you've finished it. I chose to read this book because I too am one that loves suspense books. This book fully satisfied my needs in finding one that I will remember. One of my favorite parts of this book is in the beginning of the book, where Chet Douglas' murder becomes a twist and occurs by something unknown. This beginning gets your blood pumping and sets you in the position of being on the edge.
