5.0 out of 5 stars A HORROR Must Read!!!!!, May 24 2013
WHEREWOLVES was an amazing novel that propelled me from page to page. I could not put it down. The characters were extremely well described that you felt you knew each of them personally. The descriptive horror even shocked you while reading. The visuals created in your imagination were terrifying.
Definitely not a children’s book. Best for teens and adults. A very easy read lets you get lost in the story from page 1.
Story line extremely “au Courant” for todays world. The authors write with great passion for horror. Twists and turns that lead to a fantastic ending!!!!!
Dennis Coates says:
A provocative and chilling reminder of man’s latent inhumanity to his own species. The writing style is contemporary and humane with coruscating use of idiom and slang beloved of all affinity groups who set out to explore their own culture – but when interwoven with humour and panache creates it’s own compelling, urgent momentum. A well written and enjoyable read – deserves 5 star status.
5.0 out of 5 stars
By Robyn G.
Based on the screenplay, WHEREWOLVES, by John Vamvas and Olga Montes this novel
kept me on my toes once all the action started – I just couldn’t put it down. A
group of troubled high school seniors who mainly all come from military
backgrounds, along with their teacher, The Sarge, go away on a weekend of
survival training and must face their fears. The novel was completely
unpredictable – I couldn’t believe how it ended, I thought it was something else
and I was completely fooled (in a good way). The entire novel was completely
realistic as well (the way the teens talked, acted, were, etc). The beginning of
the novel, which is really the end, starts with an action scene to grab your
attention, and then moves on to build up the story a bit before the action at
the end makes you not want to put the book down. The detail in the novel was so
“detailed” that I vividly saw everything in my mind, but it wasn’t too
overwhelming. I am not usually into “werewolves” type novels, but this is not
your usual “werewolves” novel either! I absolutely recommend it.
I hope a second novel is written, I want to know more, what happens next? What happens
after Dawn leaves the cabin? Please give us more!
A MUST READ!
What I liked: This is a well written story, with crisp characters and a detailed, satisfying plot. The story moves, and keeps you entertained. It’s both horror and social commentary, and suggests a lot of bigger ideas that are worth contemplating.
What I didn’t like: Way, way too gory for me, and I would never let my teen read it.
In sum: If you like horror and YA, this will satisfy, but don’t give it to your kids.
