5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down. 7 Dec 2003
By Becki
I purchased this book on a whim while stuck in Victoria station for 3 hours. Those 3 hours flew by while reading this. I was gripped from start to finish, from the initial backlog of werewolf law to the thrilling and open-ended conclusion. The book tells the story of Kate and Tom, two teenagers whose lives become intertwined one fateful Summer's day when Tom is kidnapped by Kate's family. Together they escape and embark on a quest, helping each other and gradually becoming closer as a result. I have never previously read any of Stephen Cole's work, but I am eagerly awaiting the next installment in this trilogy. So far I have read the book through four times since I bought it a week and a half ago, so I strongly urge anyone who likes their supernatural with a romantic twist to buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent!!! 25 Mar 2004
By Jade
I read this book as a part of a reeding club at school, and I loved it. Its a facinating book aboout werewolves, with a very well thought out history. It starts when Tom Folan goes missing on holiday with his parents. He is found by Kate's family, who take him in and care for him. But something isn't right. He soon finds out that they are all werewolves, and they've turned him into one. Now Tom and Kate are on the run, from both Kates family, and all the other werewolves.
A tense and thrilling story, with a pace that is garenteed to keep you hanging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy but cool 25 Jun 2004
This book is fantastic! I bought it in the airport to read on the flight and had to be reminded to get off the plane! Although I scared myself witless with the first one I ploughed on to the second one and can't wait until 'The Wereling III: Resurrected' comes out. It continues the story in a more polished, less rough style as if Stephen Cole has felt that he has now perfected his style. In conclusion - a must-read for horror, fantasy, and adventure fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars unbearably exciting 7 Mar 2004
I've never really been into werewolf stories. Curses, incantations and people metamorphosing into vicious members of the dog family for no adequately explored reason just doesn't do it for me.
However, what Stephen Cole has crafted here is different. It's a thriller, a love story, a coming-of-age, fugitives-on-the-run caper - all in one and with a fresh edge. The author has taken the usual werewolf stuff and set it against the backdrop of modern America, partnering a newly turned teenage ‘wolf with a female sidekick who knows far more than she's cracking on. They are forced together and running, and the enemy can be just about anybody.
The result is an almost unbearably exciting book. At 34-years-of-age, I can't wait for the sequel!

2.0 out of 5 stars THE WERELING #2: Prey. 15 Feb 2013
Categorised as juvenile fiction, though Prey isn't overly graphic or lengthy in its descriptions of blood and gore there was more, a lot more, of it than I would have expected which combined with the fact it occasionally strays into some pretty adult issues makes it, in my opinion, only really suitable for older teenage readers up. And yet, that said, I'm curious as to just how many older teenagers/young adults would find this too tame, the issues raised not quite sophisticated enough.

Trying hard not to include any spoilers, I think I'll leave it as there was nothing fresh in the telling of this story, its central themes of something (or someone) preying on the vulnerable to what ends I won't say and, the search for a cure having been featured in several other books of this genre not too mention the 'gladiatorial' element which was recently featured on a tv series starring a ghost, a vampire and, a werewolf

Part 2 in a trilogy, do I think I would have gained anything by reading part 1 first? Not something I can say for definite but I strongly believe not.

3.0 out of 5 stars None 13 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
when I bought this book i had very high hopes with such strong good reviews on it, and also the story line sounded alright. But when i read it,i found that i was gripped in the way that i expected something more to happen, and when i finished it, neither did i want to read the sequel! This only my opiionion but i'd say there are better werewolf books out there than this one!
