Frostbite: A Werewolf Tale

When hiker Cheyenne Clark landed in the Northwest Territories of the Canadian Arctic, she thought she had planned for every eventuality. The last thing she expected was to be separated from all of her gear and taken miles off course by a sudden flash flood. Chey finds she has two choices: she can either lie down and die or fight with all her might to escape the wilderness. Surprisingly, the rough terrain ends up being the least of her concerns. When a wolf bites Chey, her old life ends, as she becomes one of the most fearsome killing machines on the planet. With three zombie and four (scary) vampire tales under his belt, author David Wellington is no stranger to the world of monsters - so transitioning to werewolves was a natural progression. Rarely does a novel take me by surprise, but David brings a dark, unique take to the over-developed genre. The descriptive scene setting and jam-packed action makes //Frostbite// well worth reading, but the lack of true terror and gratuitous violence may turn some readers off. Chey is an incredible character and I hope to see her in future volumes. Reviewed by Lanine Bradley

Bite me - wait, don't...

Being in the middle of nowhere doesn't sound like fun to me. Neither does having half of the artic try to take away everything I have, a wolf with oddities chase me until I am ready to give up sound like a good time, or being mangled by said wolf sound like a story I would like to relate. Still, the changes that come after that - they seem like something interesting and - dare I say, they might make hunting fun. At least you can recover from the wounds you got, and become fodder for a really impressive pen in the mean time. Transformation is a great werewolf story because it adds a bit more to the fold than just another wolf tale. Set in the middle of nothing, it seems that it will be nothing more than a tale that will turn out to be a "help me, I'm bitten" story. Then the writer does something that was not expected by this reader - he turns the pen and tells the tale from the perspective of the werewolf. I half to admit that I was surprised when I first picked up the book and started reading it because most stories on the wolf have been clouded these days. They have the new blood set of fangs in them, where the wolf does something predictable or fights with something predictable or simply is something predictable. Here, however, you see something that you rarely see in this genre anymore. You see a twist in the plot that makes you want to keep on reading, and you see an ending that makes you feel like you actually had someone give you something wantonly blissful. True, the book is not a big book but, then again, it being the size it is makes it what it is. If it were a monstrous thing, for example, it would possibly have turned out to be yet another book with a lot of filler. And it was not filled with a lot of pages that made me want to go skipping past them. No, it was filled with penmanship that made me happy and a beast that made a lot of other books seem like child's play when it came down to it. Some people wanted more from the beast and, well, I guess that is bound to happen. Still, not seeing the thing for the creation it is truly is a travesty. I wanted a good read and got something more along the way, and felt that the writer deserved all the credit I could give. I would say more on the story but I do not like spoilers, so I will leave it as this. If the drivel is driving you mad and you need something new in your books, let this little beast come out and sing you a lullaby. You'll love the tune.

A Fresh Werewolf Tale

Frostbite is fast-paced and full of action, it did not disappoint. The characters are interesting and the brand of lycanthropy in the book is so devastating to their lives that it's hard not to sympathize with them. The settings are fleshed out and vivid. The only thing I didn't care much for were the transformation scenes, they were just too simple. Otherwise, Frostbite is a fresh and fun new addition to the werewolf genre.

vengeful werewolf blood

Cheyenne "Chey" Clark is camping in the Northwest Territories of the Canadian Arctic as she was hired by developers to lure a reticent hermit from his oil rich land where hunters wait to finish the job. After a dangerous night caused by melting ice flooding, she hears a howl that she assumes is a timber wolf. The feral wolf hunts her and when the moon is full traps and bites her. When Chey awakens she finds herself in the cabin of Monty Powell suffering no physical injuries; in fact she is feeling healthier than she can ever recall. Unsure why, she knows her host is her target. However, as she feels an urge to run the tundra, Chey remains somewhat ignorant as to her condition and just who Monty is. He seeks vengeance from those who murdered his father twenty years ago and their allies; which means slicing off the head of his potential life mate whom he has made like him. Switching from Vengeful Vampire blood to vengeful werewolf blood, David Wellington provides horror fans with an exhilarating Arctic horror thriller with the usual brilliant final twist. The story line is fast-paced with the focus on the family, as vengeance is in the Canadian air. Fans will enjoy the aptly titled FROSTBITE while wondering will he chop off her head or not and if not will she choose him or her employers? Harriet Klausner
