The Wolf Age Review

"Spear-age, sword-age:
shields are shattered.
Wind-age, wolf-age:
before the world founders
no man will show mercy to another."
Wuruyaaria: city of werewolves, whose raiders range over the dying northlands, capturing human beings for slaves or meat. Wuruyaaria: where a lone immortal maker wages a secret war against the Strange Gods of the Coranians. Wuruyaaria: a democracy where some are more equal than others, and a faction of outcast werewolves is determined to change the balance of power in a long, bloody election year.
Their plans are laid; the challenges known; the risks accepted. But all schemes will shatter in the clash between two threats few had foreseen and none had fully understood: a monster from the north on a mission to poison the world, and a stranger from the south named Morlock Ambrosius.


Well. I never actually thought that a book with werewolves would be this boring. I dont know, maybe it was the fact that I havent read the other books? maybe its just my taste? maybe it was indeed boring. Anyway, the book has terrible descriptions. I mean seriously, even with the awesome cover I had a very difficult time picturing how the hell werewolves looked, making me reshape the image of every character in almost every scene, that was frustrating and annoying. To be fair though, the last chapters of the book were awesome. They ALMOST made up for the whole frustrating read it was. The final chapters manage to do a twist i personally did not expect even in the deepest corner of my mind. However i recommend it even for the sole purpose of spending the time. After all, if you dont read books you dont like then how will you appreciate the really good ones out there?


  1. ohh i'm so disappointed =( a book with the word "wolf" in the title and not great ??

    i liked the end of your review though...

  2. so..i guess that's stay out of my TBR!

  3. No, you 2 dot buy it, you will get it from me. The good news are that it is a standalone novel. So it requires no previous knowledge of the series. Though personally i did NOT like the writing. It was confusing

    @Athanasia: i know, i got disappointed as well :S


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
