When I change I change fast. The moon drags the whatever-it-is up from the earth and it goes through me with crazy wriggling impatience . . . I’m twisted, torn, churned, throttled—then rushed through a blind chicane into ludicrous power . . . A heel settles. A last canine hurries through. A shoulder blade pops. The woman is a werewolf.
 
The woman is Talulla Demetriou.
She’s grieving for her werewolf lover, Jake, whose violent death has left her alone with her own sublime monstrousness. On the run, pursued by the hunters of WOCOP (World Organisation for the Control of Occult Phenomena), she must find a place to give birth to Jake’s child in secret.
            The birth, under a full moon at a remote Alaska lodge, leaves Talulla ravaged, but with her infant son in her arms she believes the worst is over—until the windows crash in, and she discovers that the worst has only just begun . . .
            What follows throws Talulla into a race against time to save both herself and her child as she faces down the new, psychotic leader of WOCOP, a cabal of blood-drinking religious fanatics, and (rumor has it) the oldest living vampire.
Harnessing the same audacious imagination and dark humor, the same depths of horror and sympathy, the same full-tilt narrative energy with which he crafted his acclaimed novel The Last Werewolf, Glen Duncan now gives us a heroine like no other, the definitive twenty-first-century female of the species. 


BONUS MATERIAL: This ebook edition includes an excerpt from Glen Duncan's By Blood We Live.

Baker & Taylor
A follow-up to The Last Werewolf continues the epic struggle of Talullah, who after losing Jake and giving birth to a son confronts a psychotic new WOCOP leader, an unlikely human lover, blood-drinking religious fanatics, a pack of London werewolves and the world's oldest living vampire. 100,000 first printing.

I loved The Last Werewolf and also thoroughlyenjoyed this book. While it's not quite as seductive as The Last Werewolf it's pretty close and just as raw, steep and mesmerizing.

Wow-what a read! Very raw and sexual, good pace, left plenty of room for a sequel. Choppy storytelling, but it fit the character's voice.

If you enjoyed the first one, you should be satisfied with this sequel. It's not really because of the characters. To be honest, I prefer Jake's character & story to Tallula's. Also, the book feels just a tad too long. There are countless moments of PERIL & a little editing could have tightened it up (sometimes things are scarier when there's less detail & more room for the reader's imagination) without affecting the plot. But I guess that's Duncan's style & ultimately, why you read his books. If you enjoy his blunt, honest & sardonic take on life, you'll enjoy the book, regardless of who inhabits his twisted world.
