The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group (e-book) by Catherine Jinks
This is a sequel of sorts to The Reformed Vampire Support Group which I read last year in that it continues some of the story from that book with no resolution at this one either. I'm guessing there will be another one. About what I don't know. But anyway, it is not strictly necessary to have read Reformed Vampire, but it makes more sense if you have. It took me a minute to remember who Reuben was and the whole plot of the Vampire book. This was a fun adventure, much more action adventure than the previous book. I guess because werewolves are much more robust than vampires. Jinks certainly does not let up in this book once it gets started. The first half was slow and I was getting tired of Toby and his friends, but then the location changes and I sped through the rest ready to find out what happens next. While lacking wholly sympathetic characters, because even Toby is enough to wear a person out, it was still a decent book. I found a few funny moments, but it is also very rough and tumble, much like a werewolf. I was happy to see the vampires and I look forward to reading how the over-arcing story pans out.

@Juju - Thanks!ReplyDelete
@Lazy Girl - I hope you try it.
I've read good things about Catherine Jinks, so I was thinking of getting one of her Pagan series of books, but I might start with the vampire one instead - great title! Have you read other books from Jinks?ReplyDelete
@randomizeme - Besides this one and the vampire one, I've tried Evil Genius by her and didn't like it.ReplyDelete
