I was riveted from the start, what a way to open a book! Graeme Reynolds certainly grabs the wolf by the tail.
Originally I was grabbed by the cover, but the story is original and fast paced.
Big chunks of the book are set in the 1980s so the referencing (which is almost OCD in accurateness) really brought my childhood back with a bang; minus the bone crunching, bone munching werewolves of course.
This has villains/bullies you hate, heroes you love... and the odd weird American! love it!
The settings are fantastically broody in some cases, but basically boil down to brutality with so much realism, its kind of gross, these are not cuddly werewolves.
Lots of back story and left open for more expansion of this interesting world. (book 2 is on the way!)
I would recommend this book to anyone that loves horror or the werewolf genre!
