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!*

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.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2016-12-26 06:33
When is The Last Werewolf not the last werewolf? Reading the Sequel, Talulla Rising by Glen Duncan
Talulla Rising - Glen Duncan

 

9

 

Turn-Offs

 

So, the last werewolf wasn’t the last one by far! In fact, there was a group of werewolves, just waiting to be discovered. Then there were the new ones that Talulla kept making and they arrived at exactly the right moment. One of the things that turned me off about this book.

 

The cliffhanger at the end seemed unnecessary. For me, the story was complete, so why complicate it with the real Remshi’s appearance?

 

8

 

Turn-Ons

I love the covers on all the books in the series.

 

11

 

What I liked was that the author did not shy away from violence, gore, and the other big taboo, sex while in werewolf form!

 

7

 

I wasn’t a fan of Talulla because her inner monologues were just as irritating as I found Dani’s (Fever series by Karen Marie Moning) to be! Well, okay not that irritating but they did annoy me a lot. She may not have been likeable, however, I appreciated that she didn’t try justifying or apologize for who she was.

Some Favorite Quotes

 

My mother once told me she thought hell would be nothing more than being given a glimpse of God — then having it taken away, forever.

 

6

 

His face was full of masculine prettiness and immensely likeable. Which, by horror’s law of inverted aesthetics, made me sure we were being taken to our death.

 

4

 

Even when you want to stop caring about it you can’t. Even when the solution to knowing they’re going to cut off your left breast is to disown it, you can’t. It’s yours.

If you were a woman a portion of your fear was given over, in installments that began when you were still a little girl, to rape

 

 

Did you write The Book of Remshi?

Yes.

When?

When papyrus was new.

While watching the TV series Lucifer on TV as I got the Season one DVD. I thought it is time to talk about books on Lucifer.

 

I like books about Lucifer. The freedom fighter, the character that respect freedom.

 

Yes. I like Neil Gaiman Sandman version of Lucifer. 

 

The Master and Margarita is one of the best book I read.

 

I also like Palanuik version of the devil being the bad guy.

 

Lucifer fight the dictator and want freedom. As a freedom fighter version, Lucifer is an activist and wonderful. 

 

It is the dictator, mass murdering god character is the really bad guy.
