Talulla Rising by Glen Duncan, narrated by Penelope Rawlins
Talulla Rising - Penelope Rawlins,Glen Duncan

 

When I was listening to THE LAST WEREWOLF, I wasn't sure I would continue on with the series. I liked the bloodiness of it, and I enjoyed the world building, but was less than thrilled with the tons of graphic sex going on.

EAT, FUCK, KILL is the werewolf mantra.

(spoiler show)

 

However, there was such a great hook at the end of the narrative AND the library had the audio of this one in stock, and here we are!

 

Right now, I feel the same way as I did when I finished the first book in the series. Here there were many surprises, (maybe too many to be believed, but hey-it's a werewolf book), and a good amount of action. However, I didn't feel that the quality of the writing was quite as good as THE LAST WEREWOLF.

 

Once again, close to the end, there is another surprising tidbit that makes me want to continue on with the series. This time, though, I'm going to read a few books in between, and then see if I still feel like continuing.

 

*I checked this audio out from my local library for FREE. LIBRARIES RULE!*

Christmas Reads
Cowabunga Christmas - Anna Celeste Burke Anna Celeste Burke
A Christmas with the Dodger - Charlton Daines
The Victorian Christmas - Anna Selby
All I Want For Christmas is a Werewolf - J.S. Scott
The Christmas Books, Volume 1: A Christmas Carol/The Chimes - Charles Dickens,Michael Slater

I don't know how many of these I'll actually manage to read in December, but I have a Kindle folder for Christmas books that I'd like to read.  There are more than are shown here, but the widget is moving slow and I can't be bothered.

 

Anyway, I think it's time for a re-read of Dickens and I'd like to try some others if I can find the time between my other reads.

The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan, narrated by Robin Sachs
The Last Werewolf (The Last Werewolf, #1) - Glen Duncan,Robin Sachs

 

 The Last Werewolf is not what I expected it to be, but I enjoyed it. I listened to it on audio and the narrator was excellent.

 

There is a lot of explicit sex and this book depicts werewolves as the beings they are-don't expect everything to be all prettied up because you'll be disappointed.

 

I read this with my reading group and even though I didn't LOVE this book, I think I will continue with the next-just not right away.

Plot Moppet
The Witch and the Werewolf (The Decadent Dames) - Michele Hauf

And while the plot moppet does provide some of the funniest scenes (well he doesn't really have a name and the heroine, Mireo Malory, spends some time suggesting names while our hero, Lars Gunderson, rejects them.This is book 3 in the Decadent Dames collection and while it probably would make more sense of some of the character interactions, it does stand well alone.

 

The plot moppet is pretty superflous with the rest of what's going on in these characters lives.  Lars is ill. It looks like he's going to suffer from the same thing his father did (now I know a lot of doctors who would want to study him extensively! I mean, werewolves are supposed to be healing machines! This sounds like a nasty, short span, werewolf version of MS. Her healing powers can help the symptoms but it's progressing and now that she's found him she doesn't want to let him go that quickly.

 

She wants more life and in order to do so has to eat a Vampire's heart, she wants to find a vampire who deserves death, preferably the one who killed her mother, after all she has more beer to brew!  

 

The degenerative disease sub-plot is interesting and I'd like to see more disability with supernatural. Sneaks off to write some possible plot bunnies in the old plot bunny ranch. I did like how it resolved though and I want to see Lars build Mireo a comparable bathroom to the one she started with.

 

This is a supernatural, romantic suspense, werewolves, witches, vampires, and possibly a few others; I'm using it for Witches.
