The first book in this new series, The Last Werewolf, was one of our 'stand out reads' for 2011, so getting the sequel to review was an exciting event in the office and it doesn't disappoint. The page-turning plot and suspense continue but the beautifully brutal story has more confidence and purpose, told through the voice of Talulla, female werewolf and now mother!. We recommend you read The Last Werewolf before Talulla Rising, there is a little bit of recap in the second book but not enough to stop the questions raised getting in the way of the story.

If you like Glen Duncan you might also like to read books by Christopher Fowler, Mark Haddon and Steven Sherrill.

Synopsis

Talulla Rising by Glen Duncan

Talulla Demetriou is the definitive twenty-first-century female of the species: fearless, sexy and in control. Besides being a werewolf and the last of her kind, she is carrying a child. Her offspring could continue the bloodline that WOCOP want wiped out. But in the middle of giving birth, the door flies open. It's not medical backup this time. Instead, one of her oldest enemies has come to claim her baby. Plunged into a race to recover her lost child, Talulla comes head to head with a psychopathic government operative, a coven of blood-drinking religious fanatics and (rumour has it) the oldest living vampire on earth.With all the filthy, frantic energy of The Last Werewolf, Talulla Rising is a monstrous hellride of a novel.

Reviews

'Loaded with beautifully constructed lunatic ravings... It is a horror that never shies from the human side of lycanthropy; it is a disquisition on the nature of werewolf stories; it is a sublime study in literary elegance. It is bloody (and) brilliant.' - Independent on Sunday

'Duncan is the cleverest literary horror merchant since Bram Stoker.' The Times
