Rise of the Wolf (Wereworld, #1) by Curtis Jobling

Imagine a fantasy world on par with that created by Tolkien for his Lord of the Sybopsis books, and then take away the orcs, elves, dwarves, etc. Drew then roams the forest until he is captured by the Bearlords men.

Not before she yells some ridiculously obvious things for foreshadowing purposes, though. Jodie Manchester September 9, at 1: Drew flees into the woods and lives as a wild beast for months, until an encounter with others draws him out and he begins to learn about the larger world. I can’t quite put my finger on it, something about the way the author writes his narrative just had me cringing a little in places — there were moments when the story came across as cheesy, which was a shame, because it’s a zynopsis story, it’s compelling enough for me to want to carry on with this series and see what happens to Drew and the rest of the characters, and since I own the second book I’ll probably go right into that and see how it goes.

I loved every single moments of the book with him! He is forced wolr flee his own home to the forests where he has to survive on his own.

I love the creativeness that was brought in to bring this world to life. The whole ideal that it is what is on the inside that lf really seemed apt applied to Drew. His mother loves him, though, as do his sheep. I can’t wait for the second one to come out!

He found himself with lost of experience and mystery.

I always have the nasty habit of guessing the end of a book before it happens and even though I knew where the story was going, I kept being surprised at all the characters coming up along the story and the different plot points.

Needless to say, I was really drawn in by the wonderful realm Curtis Jobling created. It is then he learns of his werewprld and how he is sought after by non other than the King of Lyssia.

There is this magic and splendour to it that makes it unique. Sep 04, Richard rated it really liked it. A world where there are many different types of were creatures. The foreshadowing, as already mentioned in my little summary, is obvious and blatant.

One night, all hell breaks loose.

Gretchen is the ultimate snotty girl who keeps bringing Drew down, but there is more to her than her haughty attitude. I know a good number of academically able boys whose parents despair because they supposedly find book boring, and would riise be playing on their X-Boxes, PS3s, and so on.

In this epic tale divided into six parts, Drew discovers the lycanthrope within him, and he is irrevocably changed by the adventure brought on by its awakening. The noble families are all of different were descent.

Jobling has a truly heinous talent for writing action and gore, and the scene in which Drew first encounters the monster that kills his mother is full of high-emotion and high-action; The creature slowly advanced into the kitchen, drawing out the eereworld.
