Tom Anderson s vacation turns into a nightmare when he ends up in the Folan house He is an invalid so why lock his door And every suggestion he makes He is an invalid so why lock his door And every suggestion he makes leave or contact someone outside gets shot down The enigmatic Kate may prove his only salvation if both of them can trust each other long enough to get away And even then there may be something bigger going on than just the two of themWhat begins as an accident ends up as something far sinister Through no fault of his own Tom finds himself in the middle of a family feud and as a conseuence wrestling with a new power But being a werewolf isn t all howling at the moon even without the rest of the wolf community hot on his tail Oh and he s falling for Kate who may be falling for him even though both of them now that for them to get together will result in both of them losing outThe prose reads fast and tight for the most part the book barrels along with surprises around every corner I particularly liked the twisting of traditional werewolf mythology not every aspect of legend was automatically fact
much of what remained had a logical feel Lycanthropy itself appears to be some form of disease which perfectly explains infection resulting from the bite of a current werewolfThere were a few things that bugged me the biggest being the main plot driver female werewolves at least purebloods can t transform until after they ve had sex with a male werewolf No attempt was made to explain why this is so men have no similar restrictions and apart from this the transformation process appears to be identical There were some hints that other creatures such as vampires existed but nothing was ever done with the rest of the supernatural beings it seemed very odd none of the others would have an opinion about the werewolves rising up to control the earth Would they join such a movement resist it or not care one way or the other Hopefully the rest of the series will delve into that at least a little bitThe book wraps up a few things and leaves a lot on the table There isn t much depth to the plot but it was a decent light read I rate this book Neutral I was looking for filler before the next Stephenie Meyer and Melissa de la Cruz books This didn t do it for me It tried too hard to be a horrormonster movie It had moments of suspense but the characters were too stereotypical the bumbling British geek turned hero the runaway who gets into trouble the overbearing mother the washed out villain attempting a comeback etc There was too much gore for my taste also I really liked this book It s short and full of suspense The characters could be developed in my opinion and the length of the book should be longer because he needs to expand on some things It s very fast paced which i don t mind after reading all of Dan Brown s books I only wish there was content in the book There are some crazy ass people in this book and it inda scared me Im not gonna lie I would give this book 3 12 stars but me being an optimist and all happy i decided to stay with 4 stars rather than 3 Goodreads really needs to put half Kate Folan comes from a family of werewolves She'll only become fully 'wolf herself when she mates with a male werewolf But she vows that will never happen The last thing she. Ble and intriguing but at times I tend to feel for Tom Tom is that visibly tortured soul while Kate s the Diamond in the Rough The transformations throughout the book never get old and you can even picture them in your mind way intense When Tom was captured by the witchdoctor I really felt his alarm dissapointment and panic Marcie Folan is deliciously evil yet she still has a three dimensional personality I felt bad Wesley Folan died Yeah he was just as bad as his mother but he was raised just as bad as his mother but he was raised that and brainwashed Kate at some glances would seem selfish at times but you ve really got to see the situation through her eyes and she reacts very realisticly Tom will do so much for Kate yet not to the extent of fakeness Mini Review Wounded Prey and Resurrection are the books that made me start reading for fun I remember going through the aisle s of my local book fair and seeing Wounded on the shelf After reading the synopsis I decided to buy it It was also one of the first bargain priced books I ever bought with my parent s money since I was still a id When I started reading I fell in love with the story It was interesting and ept my attention throughout This was a big thing for me since I seem to have the attention span of a suirrel Once I finished I begged my mother to take me back so I could get the other two books I really believe that this trilogy could get boys and girls into reading It sure helped blossom my love for booksFor reviews check out my blog at Cook s Reviews This is a review of the trilogy as a whole for these are short books and what I say can apply to all of themI remember reading these books when I was in school than ten years ago and it s a testament that I remember them and was in school than ten years ago and it s a testament that I remember them and scenes characters and uotes vividly I enjoyed them then and I enjoy them now as an adult These are fast paced smooth reads and the writing is economical The only time it does seem to stumble in its pacing in when it has to give an info dump but they re only a paragraph or so long and they serve to remind you what has happened in the previous books or to give you information on important and relevant
and much of what remained had a logical feel Lycanthropy itself appears to be some form of disease which perfectly explains
"Parts Of The Werewolf Mythology "of the werewolf mythology is interestingly crafted so you don t have to waste time trying to stitch the pieces together throughout the book Granted the transitions into the info dumps are a little clumsy at times but they re uick and fewThe characters are very likeable and their humour takes the edge off some of the dark grizzly horror And these books are HORROR Publish two years before Twilight castrated werewolves these books eep the rabid animal violence and in no way romanticises them At the same time it doesn t go too overboard with the gore only at important times where you need that stab of dread All in all I d recommend these They re short books and you could probably read the whole trilogy in a week at most Ugh If I have to read wolf stylized like that again I m going to freak That was so so annoying Writing was subpar but the story was somewhat interesting I finished in a day Won t be reading the next two in the series. Er who chose wisely Tom and Kate can't help falling for each other But if they give in to their feelings Kate will become the thing she hates most Unless they can find a cure.
