Books For A Buck
Electronic : N/A
After having read another book by Rob Preece, I was truly looking forward to this one. Mr. Preece is the type of author that keeps you guessing how he will take the plot of a simple story and run to amazing places with it. With In The Werewolf's Den, he did just that.
Danielle Goodman has wanted to be a vampire-hunter since she saw first hand what a vampire is capable of. However, after completing her training, her first assignment is not only less than desirable but considered the lowest job anyone could have. She has been assigned as a herder of the magically impaired.
Carl Harriman is not only a magically impaired werewolf: he was a scientist. When the signs of impairment started showing he turned himself in and was taken to a prison where other impairs were kept away from humans. After finally getting the government to agree to let him try to find a cure for the impaired, he is released as Danielle's ward.
When they get to the zone, the place that keeps the magicals separate from the humans, they realize that not everyone wants to be cured. They have to figure out a way to get the human and the magical to live in peace without fear of one another. Furthermore, they are fighting the feelings they have developed for each other during the process.
This is not your typical werewolf story. It contains a very intriguing plot, with unexpected twists and turns. Mr. Preece really knows how to build excitement in a story. He gives us a different peek into the lives and heart of the paranormal genre. The characters have a few unusual problems to overcome, but the author does a great job with those as well.
