Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

May 02, 2011 – At the start of British author Duncan's fine supernatural thriller, centuries-old lycanthrope Jake Marlowe learns he has become the last known werewolf on earth. Soon Jake is on the run from not only WOCOP, an antioccult agency that wants to hunt him down for sport, but also vampires, who have discovered that a werewolf bite can desensitize them to the ravages of sun exposure. After escaping horrible torments at the hands of both parties, Jake is shocked to discover that he may not be the last wolf standing, and that it's crucial he survive to propagate his species. Duncan (A Day and a Night and a Day) keeps the pages turning with hairbreadth escapes that have Jake globe-trotting for dear life from Europe to the U.S., but the true allure of his tale is the poetic and evocative prose by which Jake relates his transformations, kills, and thoughts. Savvy and exceptionally literate, this is one smart modern werewolf tale. 100,000 first printing.

Customer Reviews

Howlingly Sexy

I haven't been this moved and compelled by a horror story since Interview with the Vampire. Equal parts James Bond, Horror and swooning romance, I was enraptured before finishing the first page. He writes with such a relish for language that paragraphs left me breathless, heart panting with anticipation.

Overwrought and Boring

I love a great horror book and thoroughly enjoy an author with a playful command of language. Unfortunately, this book felt overwrought and not the least bit scary or even interesting. 130 pages into this book and I was bored to tears. I rarely stop reading a book, even bad ones. However, it was a relief to shut the cover on this one and move on to something else. Very disappointing.
