Talulla Rising by Glen Duncan
  

Lovereading view...

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 Steven Sherrill, Christopher Fowler and Mark Haddon.
