Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf

Publisher: Puffin Books

Review

Like so many classic fantasy novels, the first of the Wereworld series begins with an ordinary boy to whom extraordinary things begin to happen. Drew is a simple farmer's son, with little more to concern him than tending his flock of unruly sheep, until the day that his beloved mother is savagely murdered by a hideous beast.

The attack triggers an unexpected transformation in Drew himself that forces him to flee his childhood home and family, and to confront his true identity: he is in fact no ordinary peasant, but one of the WereLords, an ancient family of shapeshifting creatures who rule the Seven Lands, and the last of a royal line. But Drew quickly finds himself with enemies on all sides, and there are many more adventures, battles and betrayals ahead before this high-octane debut reaches its exciting crescendo.

Action-packed and fast-paced, this is a gripping adventure with a compelling hero that is likely to appeal to young fans of fantasy and horror.
