A thrilling read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Talulla Rising (The Last Werewolf Trilogy) (Hardcover)
Glen Duncan is, for my money, the best contemporary writer Britain has. His earlier work was full of poignant scenes detailing tales of love and loss and I loved it. The Last Werewolf was far more plot driven than any of his previous work but along with the author's usual terrific prose, this additional thrilling element made me want to turn the pages even quicker. I was slightly worried by how quickly this sequel came out, as it may have been rushed but there was no need for concern. This is just as good as its predecessor, with the same thoughts on life and human nature, interspersed with thrilling scenes of intense action. It's a fantastic combination and I eagerly await the final instalment.
After that though, it would be nice if Duncan could leave horror behind and return to the themes of some of his earlier work, particularly Hope and Love Remains. If you liked The Last Werewolf you will love this. And if you prefer literacy fiction, it's still worth a try but maybe start with one of his earlier novels.
