Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Glen Duncan delivers a powerful, sexy new version of the werewolf legend, a riveting and monstrous thriller — with a profoundly human heart.

Jake Marlowe is the last werewolf. Now just over 200 years old, Jake has an insatiable appreciation for good scotch, books, and the pleasures of the flesh, with a voracious libido and a hunger for meat that drives him crazy each full moon. Although he is physically healthy, Jake has slipped into a deep existential crisis, considering taking his own life and ending a legend that has lived for thousands of years. But there are two dangerous groups — one new, one ancient — with reasons of their own for wanting Jake very much alive.

Review:

"Space should be cleared for this violent, sexy thriller....The answer to Twilight that adults have been waiting for." Booklist

Review:

"Yes, there are vampires here....But don't give this book to Twilight groupies; the frank tone, dark wit, and elegant, sophisticated language will likely do them in....[S]mart, original, and completely absorbing. Highly recommended." Library Journal (Starred Review)

Review:

"A magnificent novel. A brutal, indignant, lunatic howl. A sexy, blood-spattered page-turner, beautifully crafted and full of genuine suspense, that tears the thorax out of the horror genre to create something that stands rapturous and majestic and entirely on its own." Nick Cave
