Product Description

Review

Wickedly entertaining (The Times)

The horror genre at its best - wildly imaginative (The Times)

Best described as a gleeful three-way between Raymond Chandler's entire oeuvre, Anne Rice's vampire novels and Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum . . . A high-calorie blast (New York Times)

Sexy, funny, blisteringly intelligent. (The Times)

Review

'Loaded with beautifully constructed lunatic ravings... It is a horror that never shies from the human side of lycanthropy; it is a disquisition on the nature of werewolf stories; it is a sublime study in literary elegance. It is bloody (and) brilliant. - Independent on Sunday

To say this was an eagerly awaited sequel is understating the case, ever since the end of the superb "Last Werewolf" I have been waiting for the next instalment and this does not disappont at all. Glen Duncan has somehow managed to up the ante with each of his novels (perhaps he made a deal with Lucifer who was after all the central character of one of his earlier novels?) and each one has been even better than the last. While his sophisticated structuring and intelligent literary referencing may not be for everyone even without this he writes a great story with characters the reader believes in a cares about. He also imbues the story with a great deal of dry wit and humour, also trademark Duncan.

Talullah Rising begins in the aftermath of the gory ending of the Last Werewolf with Talullah pregnant and looking for somewhere to give birth away from the werewolf hunters at WOCOP and the vampires who are after her due to the potentially light-resistant properties of werewolf DNA. It's a great set up for the story and within 15 pages I was sucked in and put the book down once before I finished it. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone, and am already counting down to the final book in the trilogy.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a very entertaining sequel to The Last Werewolf. I had high expectations of this as The Last Werewolf totally absorbed me and this does not disappoint. You do need to have read the previous novel to fully apprciate the story although if you did dive in right here I think Glen Duncan's writing style is so entertaining it could well make up for any story gaps you are missing. There lots of references to the previous story's main character and his outlook on werewolf life as Talulla has Jacob's journal with her as a sort of werewolf reference for any werewolf education she still needs.

Glen Duncan writes this in first person again, using more sharp observations, humour and occasional pop culture references to ground the book and give it a sense of realism. It worked brilliantly in the first story so I am very glad he stuck with that style for the sequel.

Obviously this whole first person approach hangs on the main character being interesting and she certainly is that, perhaps even more so than Jacob was in The Last Werewolf. The author does a brilliant job of describing the problems and solutions of being a werewolf parent, the badly timed birth scene is particularly well described and the sense of the power of Talulla's emotions towards her babies is very real.

As with the first story this held my interest throwing in plenty of character developments, action and pretty shocking twists that I never got close to getting bored once. The mostly quite short chapters as before helps keep the momentum of the story going and often made me try and read "just one more" chapter.

I also really like how as before the quality feel of the hardback, binding and the edging to the pages just shouts quality to me.

Talulla Rising is a clever, literary, wickedly humorous horror story. As it begins Talulla is about to go into labour. She is a female werewolf and is about to be pitted against age-old enemies, a particular Vampire cult. They are about to steal her first-born child of twins, a boy.

If anyone had told me I would happily read this kind of book, I'd have baulked. But then one of my favourite writers, Glen Duncan, decided to write a horror story called The Last Werewolf and Tallulla Rising is the sequel. It turns out that Jake, the hero of the first book, is not, after all the last werewolf, but Talulla may be, until the birth of her twins. A warning, however, there is bad language and sex scenes within. If such offends you, do not read this book.

So, why isn't Jake the last werewolf? In fact, due to some of the activities in this book, there are more werewolves than we started out with. Talulla, as a new and somewhat bewildered werewolf has read The Occult Phenomena journal which tells her:

"Werewolves do not reproduce sexually... If you haven't had kids by
the time you're turned you're not having any, get used to it.
Lycanthropic reproduction is via infection: survive the bite and
the Curse is yours.
But here's the thing, the old news, the stale headline: no one
Is surviving the bite any more."

"Thanks to a virus. For which WOCOP has found a cure. A cure they'd shot into me the night I was bitten."

Why has the World Organisation for the Control of Occult Phenomena found themselves facing an insurgent offspring dedicated to the Creation of occult phenomena? And how come Talulla holds the key to these strange developments? The book will tell you very entertainingly, without dissimulation and at satisfying length. I'm half-horrified to find myself enjoying this kind of thing, but enjoying it I am. Glen Duncan is an unusually versatile, unaccountably wonderful and accomplished writer.

I enjoyed reading this book. It started off slow but once it got going I couldn't put it down. There were parts where I struggled to like Talulla when she was eating people. Some of it is very gruesome and graphic mentally and physically to read. Overall very entertaining.

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.
