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.
Dark Reads Review
Thanks to Toneye Eyenot for providing me with an ARC copy of this book in return for an honest review
This was a collection of 5 short stories that celebrate everything Werewolf.
The authors passion for the subject matter is clear in his storytelling, there is plenty of gore and grizzly imagery, as you would expect. I enjoyed the fact that most of the stories were told from the Werewolf’s POV.
There were some really good inner conflict scenes in ‘Blood Moon Big Top’ after Pebbles the clown gets bitten and undergoes the transformation from human to Werewolf, as he battles with his human conscience and animal impulses.
Unfortunately I did struggle with this collection, I found that with all of the stories being on the same subject, the language and descriptions felt repetitive, there was no real depth or sense of direction to the stories which is a shame, this one just wasn’t for me.
If you like a fast paced Werewolf Gore-fest I would recommend you check it out!
