Then she opened her mouth to scream—and recognised me. It was what I’d been waiting for. She froze. She looked into my eyes. She said, “It’s you.”
Meet Jake. A bit on the elderly side (he turns 201 in March), but you’d never suspect it. Nonstop sex and exercise will do that for you—and a diet with lots of animal protein. Jake is a werewolf, and after the unfortunate and violent death of his one contemporary, he is now the last of his species. Although he is physically healthy, Jake is deeply distraught and lonely.
Jake’s depression has carried him to the point where he is actually contemplating suicide—even if it means terminating a legend thousands of years old. It would seem to be easy enough for him to end everything. But for very different reasons there are two dangerous groups pursuing him who will stop at nothing to keep him alive.
Here is a powerful, definitive new version of the werewolf legend—mesmerising and incredibly sexy. In Jake, Glen Duncan has given us a werewolf for the twenty-first century—a man whose deeds can only be described as monstrous but who is in some magical way deeply human.
One of the most original, audacious, and terrifying novels in years.

Publishers Weekly Review

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.
