If anyone has read the original prequel, Blood Enemy, you will find an error when you read Rise of the Lycans. In Blood Enemy, the beginning of the book has Lucian leading Lady Ilona (Viktor's wife/Sonja's mother) on a hunt for werewolves. When they return to the castle, Sonja (I think was a teenager at the time perhaps) greets her mother. In Rise of the Lycans, it says that Lady Ilona died giving birth to Sonja. Also, there are many grammatical errors in this book. Other than those two things, the story is well written.

First of all I haven't seen the movie yet. The book was great and if the movie is the same as the book, its going to be a hit.
I could'nt put the book down. It was easy to follow and kept me glue to the story. Learning about Sonja and Lucian and what the lycans were like was breath taking. And finding out about Viktor and how he treated his own daughter, he was evil to the very end.
I really enjoyed reading the book. The only thing that was not mention was, who was Amelia and where did she come from?

Thank you,
Rachel

This book gives us the full scope of how the war between the vampires and the lycans began. The author captures it so well no wonder he has written all of the underworld stories. Thank you Mr. Cox for giving us what we wanted to know about how it all began. I am a true fan of all the underworld novels and movies.

I seen the movie and could not figure out what the heck was going on so I got this book. Great "cliff notes"! It is actually a lot more detailed and explanatory than the movie. I highly recommend you read the book before you see the movie. Cox does an excellent job of bringing the screen to life and adds enough character detail and background that you get to know the characters more intimately. The story itself, (sorry Underworld fans) is kind of lame. I found it a bit eye rolling that Lucian (A wereworlf enslaved to the vampires) is so enamored with one of his slave holding "betters" (a vampire princess) that he refuses to even escape for love of her. And vice versa. I am not a romantic tho. A thought tho.. the sex scene was a little outrageous.. engorged member? Succulent rump? LOL

Okay, I read the book before I saw the movie. I would not say that it was a mistake, it's just that the book goes into so much more detail than the movie, however simialr they are. If you saw the movie and liked it definately read the book, it's well worth it!
