Fangtastic Tales of Werewolf Savagery – ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Book Review

Fangtastic Tales of Werewolf Savagery

Toneye Eyenot

First of all, many thanks to the author for a copy of ‘Fangtastic Tales of Werewolf Savagery’ to read in exchange for an honest review.

Who doesn’t like a good Werewolf story? 

Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:

“La Lluna Plena – the Full Moon – that beautiful and mysterious celestial body which stirs within us all those deep, dark emotions we do our best to subdue and control. For some of us, her influence runs deeper, much deeper. We all walk beneath her maddening rays, yet, while most may shrug off the notion that inside us all resides a beast – a savage wolf – there are those of us who embrace the monster within and ride that lunatic wave with abandon each time she casts her gaze upon us.

Some see it as a blessing, others…a curse. To be bitten, and fall prey to murderous urges beyond our control, or to have the good fortune to be born into the pack, or perhaps even to whisper words of spell in order to evoke the lycanthropic gift, there are more than a few ways to cast aside the human skin and let loose the wolf within. Those ways are explored throughout this collection of werewolf terrors.

Suspend disbelief, dear reader, because whether you care to admit it, or continue to live in ignorant bliss, we walk among you. We smell the blood as it courses through your veins and taste your fear on the breeze. We long to see the life drain from your quivering flesh as we gorge. Beware the Full Moon, as you are about to enter the world of the Werewolf.”

Toneye Eyenot is a wonderful expressionist. His passion for all things werewolf comes across as plane as day in his writing. His visceral approach makes for an intense journey.

Fangtastic Tales of Werewolf Savagery is a collection for stories, one long and several much shorter, centering around werewolves in all their blood-lusting glory. It is a very entertaining read, full of all the gore and guts you would expect.

The initial story ‘Blood Moon Big Top’ is ‘fangtastic’, this was my favorite of the collection. For me, personally, this was the best in the book.

This a great read if you are a fan of all things werewolf, its full of life, character, and plenty of full moon action.

Wolvz: Whispers of War -⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Book Review ***Spoilers***

Wolvz Whispers of War

Wolvz Whispers of War

5* Book review

“The war on humanity has begun… 

Wolfhaven – ground zero – none in this town will survive the wrath of the pack. The first slaughter sparks the beginning of the end for humanity as the Wolfhaven pack descends upon the unsuspecting townsfolk to exact revenge for the killing of one of our own – Pharo, the mother of the pack, once feared and respected by our kind throughout the region, is no more. 

Claude’s plan is bold yet carefully thought out; to spread from Wolfhaven, town by town, village by village, city by city; to rid the world of the human plague and put an end to the desecration of this wondrous planet. It all begins here. 

As the ranks swell, the surrounding packs forming alliances and consolidating, select humans spared annihilation to be turned and assimilated as the moon casts her influence. Will our beloved Alpha’s grand plan come to fruition? Or, will pettiness, arrogance, and territorial pissing end this war before it begins? 

I am Shona, first daughter of Pharo, and here my story begins…”

I really loved this novella, it was an intense and inspiring read, an exquisitely beautiful and savage tale centred around revenge.

I was pulled into the story from the outset. The townsfolk of Wolfhaven have killed the pack mother, Pharo, and the pack has planned their glorious revenge. The Wolfhaven pack, led by Claude, has come up with an astoundingly vicious plan. They are going to decimate the town of Wolfhaven, killing most of the human infestation, and turning the stronger among them, those with potential,  to increase their numbers. They also plan to form alliances with neighbouring packs and to continue this killing spree and recruitment drive through other towns. One town at a time, they plan to take the planet for themselves, ridding it of the human scourge.

This is a very visceral descriptive story, from the POV of Shona. She has lost her mother, ripped away from her in a savage way. This is her story; this is Shona’s journey of revenge and to some extent, her coming of age.

“Agitation sets into my bones. Soon, we will be in human skin once again, which I never look forward to. I long for that day… when Claude’s plan comes to fruition and we never have to hide our true form again.”

The writing, the imagery, the sheer feeling that is evoked when reading this, this is what led me to rating this five stars. It is a journey for both Shona and the reader. There is a delicate intensity about Wolvz: Whispers of War. It is savage, yet beautiful. It is haunting, the purity of the rage from the pack. The writing is outstanding, really getting inside the head of the reader.

I would highly recommend this novella to anyone and everyone. It’s not a long read, this is very good lunch break or bedtime material. If werewolf stories aren’t normally your thing, you won’t lose too much of your day reading it. I think if you give it a go though, you will be more than impressed.

5/5
