Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf
Wereworld: Rise of the wolf is an incredible book. As a reader of fantasy, I read it and absolutely loved it. This book takes place in a world that is ruled by wereanimals. Not only are there werewolves, but there are also werebears, werestags, wereboars, and werelions and so one. This aspect makes this book a superb work of fantasy in my eyes. It deviates from the typical, overdone, supernatural werewolf that I really to not like. It views werewolves not as monsters of the supernatural world, but as a living fantasy creature that has other wereanimals alike. From a literary point of view, the language is simple, maybe a little too simple, but pleasant enough to be very enjoyable and entertaing. The flow of the story feels natural. Occasionally dialogue sounds a little odd but all in all it has a good flow. It isn't often you come across books like these.
It is very rare a book this good comes across. I have been dying to read its sequel, Rage of the Lions for some time now. It recently came out. I haven't read it yet, but I sure can't waitto read it.
This book series is actually a foreign set of books from Britain. The author Curtis Jobling apparently was the maker of Bob the Builder tv show. I find that quite bewildering. Anyway since it's a foreign book that means it takes longer to get to America. Joy. I recommend this book series if you love fantasy, especially werewolves.
