Description

Bullies, jocks, and geeks. A teacher. The woods. An unspeakable horror. 
A fresh take on an old theme where nothing is what it seems. 
What is out there? Can it really be werewolves?

“KEPT ME ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT. GETS YOUR PULSE POUNDING.”
Author and award winning investigative journalist, Victor Malarek

Using a fun, explosive style, full of new slang and fresh dialogue, WHEREWOLVES is the story of a group of high school seniors, most “military brats”, who are headed for an army-type survival weekend.

The underdogs, Jeffrey and Doris, do not want to go as they fear for their safety among the disdain and cruelty of the popular students. Sergeant Tim O’Sullivan, their teacher, as well as their dysfunctional parents pressure them into going, but it is an unforgivable act by their peers that propels the pair to go. Likewise, Elie, a student resented because of his Arab roots, is even more determined to prove himself this weekend. In the background, a news report cautions of a wanted couple with alleged super-human strength supposedly brought on by a new drug on the streets.

In the woods, the students hike, hunt, camp, and soon act in unity as the forest brings them closer together. But does it? O’Sullivan leaves them alone for the night. The students bond, chant, tell campfire tales, and quickly lose their fears and inhibitions. HOO-AH! Though sexual tensions are high, it soon turns to violence and everything quickly turns sour.

When the kids start disappearing one after the other, the remaining begin to unwittingly “act like the natives” carving spears, ready to face whatever is out there. What has gotten into them?

Amid blood-curdling growls and gruesome deaths, the story’s underlying layers are revealed. We see how misconceptions, prejudice, greed, fear, and hatred bring out the worst and best in us.

I really liked that it was a different take on werewolves, sometimes it feels like the genre can get stale but this breaths life into the werewolf genre. The characters are great and I really liked the story itself. Overall I thought it was a really good read.

Different take on a werewolf story. It begins with a girl running from something but she doesn't know what. Gets picked up by someone and thinks she is safe. But is she? Then typical high school antics. A teacher who happens to have been in the Military takes students on a survival trip. The horror begins. Things are not what they seem. What is causing this? You will have to read the book to find out. Great story, intense, maybe sleeping with the lights on will help. If you can sleep. I loved this story and look forward to more by these authors. I was gifted this book by Net Galley for a honest review.

Wherewolves by John Varnras and Olga Montes.  The underdogs, Jeffrey and Doris, do not want to go as they fear for their safety among the disdain and cruelty of the popular students. Sergeant Tim O’Sullivan, their teacher, as well as their dysfunctional parents pressure them into going, but it is an unforgivable act by their peers that propels the pair to go.

Amid blood-curdling growls and gruesome deaths, the story’s underlying layers are revealed. We see how misconceptions, prejudice, greed, fear, and hatred bring out the worst and best in us. What is out there? Can it really be werewolves? A fantastic read. I really enjoyed this book. It was fantastic.  Very gory. I loved the storyline and the cover. I read this in one sitting. Just couldn't put it down.  I hope there is more to come. 5*.
