THIS ISN'T THE FIRST WEREWOLF, I'VE HAD ON THE ROOF OF MY VAN.
I bought this because I loved the first book. I was scheduled to ride with another driver and I wanted him to hear how funny and scary, Strand was. He loved it and is going to get book one. I have to admit that I could not get interested for long in the book. It was funny from start to finish, but story wise, I personally did not care. The book was one long chase scene, with lots of humor, gore and violence. Plot wise, it did not cut it for me. It was funny, but not as funny as book one. I still love Strand and will be buying Dweller and Pressure.

First of all, there is a lot of gore, so this book isn’t for everyone. Compared to the first one, I think I like this one even better. I didn’t find as much humor in it, but I thought the characters were better.
Many horror novels use gore to shock their readers and usually include common phobias like a monster in the dark or creepy crawlies. These have their place but they’re a dime a dozen. The best horror novels are those that show the true dark depths of the twisted human mind. The very best villains have a good side and the very best heroes have a demon whispering into their ear.
There is no creature on Earth that can be sicker than a human, and a writer who can capture that sickness is a true artist. Jeff Strand has definitely done this. The werewolf angle does not detract from this; wolves don’t hunt humans down. It is the human mind with the wolf claws, teeth, and strength that makes this so good.
Scott Thomas once again did an excellent job bringing it to life. He was able to perfectly portray the emotion, from abject terror to psychotic exuberance. The pacing and pronunciation was spot on, the female characters were good, and I never had to wonder who was talking.
This is one of my favorite horror novels with a great balance of action, description, and dialogue. I recommend it to all horror-lovers.
I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
