Format: Paperback
More in the tradition with films such as "The Lost Boys," "Werewolves" is a fictional account of a teenage girl named Alice who records her and her brother's gradual wolf transformations via text and graphic depictions. The pair are attacked one night and Alice notices that she's beginning to change-- her wounds heal fairly quickly and she breaks a vegetarian habit that leads to her devouring raw meat and cold cuts in the dead of night. She and her brother are taken in by the same werewolves that bit them where they are introduced to the joys of living and hunting as wolves. However, what is supposed to be a blessing for Alice quickly becomes a curse as the grim nature of the werewolf pack hierarchy is revealed as her brother is on the receiving end of abuse from the others. As if that wasn't enough, armed werewolf hunters are stalking the pack waiting for the right moment to attack and kill the monsters.

"Werewolves" is a unique book in two ways. In a book market gradually becoming saturated with werewolf stories, this is among a minority of graphic novels. The art compliments the text well in tone and color. It's detailed enough without dipping into a too juvenile or cartoon quality, yet the content isn't too bloody and grotesque to a point where appropriateness can be questioned. The art itself is also very versatile as it tends to shift between pleasant tones (a caring mother cooking inked in warm colors) and horror (transformation sequences and enraged wolves drawn in gritty-pencil style). Also, if you think paranormal romance has been done to death, this book is a real treat. You won't find teenagers brooding over love interests in this book. The story delivers exactly what the title promises.

This is a fast read. It's Alice's journal which tells of how her and her brother are bitten and then turn into werewolves. Interesting, and I was sad when it was done, wish there was more. The drawings were excellent as well.

Format: Paperback
After being overly saturated by the whole Twilight saga craze, here at last is a werewolf story story for teens that brings the Monster back to the werewolf genre. Nothing cute or romantic here, but neither is there any heavy gore or useless drama. It's a well-written, straightforward story, beautifully illustrated by Allyson Haller, about a girl who records the changes that happen to herself and her brother. I actually hope for a sequel, if the author and artist would be so inclined. It's wonderful in its simplicity. A breath of fresh air...if you like werewolf breath, that is. :D
