5.0 out of 5 stars Wereling, it's just beginning. 9 Mar 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a book you can't put down without a fight (or at least, i couldn't anyway.) This is the story of a young 16 year old boy opening his eyes to a whole new world... which he's rather be better off dead.

and a 17 year old girl whose family line she's cursed since a fatal "accident" at her old home. What was this accident?

Buy it and read for yourself. This book is a real hooker with dark twists around every turn. You'd be hard pressed to get a better horror for a teen audience. (I'm 16 as it is and i still read it after 2 years after buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 25 Jun 2009
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sixteen-year-old Tom Anderson is a typical teen. Ticked off to be spending his summer vacation with his parents and younger brother, Tom storms out of their rented cabin in the Seattle forest, needing some time to himself. Next thing he knows, he's wading in a fast-moving river, with a bear between him and freedom. After being tossed unmercilessly down-river, Tom passes out--and awakes in a strange bed in a strange house.

Tom's now at the mercy of the Folan family--mom Marcie, a former nurse, dad Henry, an author, son Wesley, and strange daughter Kate. The family (minus Kate) informs Tom that he's now on an island, cut off from the mainland, with severe injuries sustained from his trip down the river. In terrible pain and totally weak, Tom spends what he believes is a week in the Folan home, recuperating from his wounds yet somehow feeling stranger as every day goes by.

Then a shocker from the strange but lovely Kate--Tom's been in the Folan home for a month, not a week, and Marcie, Henry, and Wesley aren't normal family members. They're werewolves, and they're doing everything within their power to change Tom into one to act as Kate's mate.

Suddenly, Tom is in fear for his life, and not from the raging river than wounded him. He realizes that Kate Folan may be his only chance for salvation from the beast that now resides within him, and the two set off in the dead of night after a deadly confrontation with Wesley to find a mystery man named Jicaque in New Orleans, who just might be able to cure Tom of the beast he's now living with.

WOUNDED is a great, fast-paced read! Touted as young adult book, probably because the hero is sixteen, this story will appeal to any lovers of the paranormal, especially those who enjoy werewolf stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars exciting and tense fantasy adventure 8 May 2008
By Stampy
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In the first novel of the Wereling trilogy, Tom Anderson is trapped in a house with a strange family who want to keep him there until they get what they want. And what they want is a partner for their daughter Kate, so she can be turned into a werewolf.

Full of gripping and tense situations, Wounded is a great tense read written well by Stephen Cole.

With the unexpected situations and an unknown world lurking in the shadows, the secretive and descriptive writing will keep readers hooked from the very beginning as the central protagonist encounters the unbelievable.

Though it can take a while to get going and some of the characters are perhaps a bit over eccentric, it is a great read.

The plot is consistent with death defying situations, stunning changes and a somewhat clichéd but equally exciting tension between the two central characters Tom and Kate.

The novel conforms well to the fantasy genre with the use of werewolves and to the adventure thriller genre with fast paced situations involving the characters.

One thing about the use of werewolves is that Cole doesn't use as many clichés about the animals as many authors have tended to use which can only be a bonus with a different approach to the concept.

It's a good first instalment and the next two novels in the trilogy are equally intriguing and exciting so pick it up and have a read today!

WOUNDED is a great, fast-paced read! Touted as young adult book, probably because the hero is sixteen, this story will appeal to any lovers of the paranormal, especially those who enjoy werewolf stories. I've already ordered the final two books in the series, Prey #2 (The Wereling) and Resurrection #3 (The Wereling), and am looking forward to getting started on them.

Definitely a recommended read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking for another werewolf book. . . 14 Mar 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
here it is. I love werewolf books like 'Blood and Chocolate' by Klause and 'Bitten' by Armstrong and I think you would probably enjoy this one. The book sends you on a journey with Kate and Tom. As they try to run away from what they are they run into many obstacles . . .and I won't say anymore. I really did enjoy this book and I didn't give it 5 stars mostly because I don't want to 'over hype' the book which I believe sometimes happens and then readers are dissappointed. Well, I already purchased the 2nd book to this wereling series and if your willing to take a chance on a book then why not purchase this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Writing 20 Feb 2014
By J. L. Montgomery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was taking a YA Writing class in college and wanted to read some other YA related material I might be more interested in. This one had good reviews so I went for it.

Alright, this book goes to every part of YA writing that we were told to avoid and because of that this book will never be memorable. The beginnign was decent... but from then on, both of the characters are cliched and, at the very least, give away that the author thinks all teenagers are stupid, rash and petty. That is how the characters act.

I think the main thing that got me is the lack of realism. Before anyone says anything, the suspension of belief that a reader has to engage in for fiction only happens once they truly feel as if all of this could really be real. But the whole idea that the family just kidnapped this injured kid and held him hostage at their house to make him their daughter's mate... it is just so outrageous that after Tom and Kate initially got away, I could not read any further.

I will not even begin on the editing. There were a great many typos and grammatical errors that should not be happening in this day and age of computers and peer editing at the very least.
