When I change I change fast. The moon drags the whatever-it-is up from the earth and it goes through me with crazy wriggling impatience . . . I’m twisted, torn, churned, throttled—then rushed through a blind chicane into ludicrous power . . . A heel settles. A last canine hurries through. A shoulder blade pops. The woman is a werewolf.   The woman is Talulla Demetriou. She’s grieving for her werewolf lover, Jake, whose violent death has left her alone with her own sublime monstrousness. On the run, pursued by the hunters of WOCOP (World Organisation for the Control of Occult Phenomena), she must find a place to give birth to Jake’s child in secret.             The birth, under a full moon at a remote Alaska lodge, leaves Talulla ravaged, but with her infant son in her arms she believes the worst is over—until the windows crash in, and she discovers that the worst has only just begun . . .             What follows throws Talulla into a race against time to save both herself and her child as she faces down the new, psychotic leader of WOCOP, a cabal of blood-drinking religious fanatics, and (rumor has it) the oldest living vampire. Harnessing the same audacious imagination and dark humor, the same depths of horror and sympathy, the same full-tilt narrative energy with which he crafted his acclaimed novel The Last Werewolf, Glen Duncan now gives us a heroine like no other, the definitive twenty-first-century female of the species.

3.0 Talulla Rising by Glen Duncan, narrated by Penelope Rawlins
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. [spoiler] EAT, FUCK, KILL is the werewolf mantra. [/spoiler] However, ther...

0.0 When is The Last Werewolf not the last werewolf? Reading the Sequel, Talulla Rising by Glen Duncan
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 cliff...

3.0 So-so
Not the purported reimagining of the werewolf story some people seem to think this trilogy is. More of a Jason Bourne kind of supernatural thriller with Vampires and Werewolves, actually somewhat reminiscent of the Underworld movies except with more of a werewolf bent. I'm surprised so few people pi...

I was not impressed. I realized quickly that it was a sequel, but was able to work around that. I started it on Friday afternoon with the kids gone for the weekend and figured it would be a fun, easy, read. Instead I found myself slightly groaning and doing household chores to avoid. It was just...
