So, feeling dejected, I decided to give 'Werewolves' a shot. And thankfully, here I found some really good and entertaining reading. . When I look at a book that I may consider purchasing, I first read the description. Then I'll go to the 'Reviews' and I'll read a few from each level. I find it amusing that I can look at a 5 Star Review and read "Great Book, the best book I have ever read. The author is amazing !". Then go down to a 2 Star Review of the same book and read " Terrible ! The worst Book I ever read ! Written by a 4 year old ! " I also have begun to use
'Sample' feature that Amazon offers so I can get into a few chapters of a book and after reading, decide if I want to purchase it or not. And that is what I did with this book.
It grabbed my interest right away and I shelled out the crippling cost of $2.99 and bought it. And I am very glad I did. I would give this book 6
Stars if it were allowed. The book begins a hundred and more years in the past to form the back story in the Prologue , then moves up into present day. It is a long book, 532 pages. And I love long books. The problem with 'Long Books' is that they often contain a lot of 'Filler' or too
much 'Back Story' or are over descriptive. ( I once read a Zombie Novel where the author took up 8 pages describing how the main character was opening a door ).his book has none of that. It flows very evenly and holds the interest. You can feel what the characters are feeling and parts of the book will tug at your emotions. The villain is a villain by chance, not choice. This is not your 'Run of the Mill' Werewolf novel. The author has put his own twist to it. And it is very refreshing. I refuse to inject any spoilers here, but I will say that there is plenty of action, gore, suspense and drama in this book.
And for the Grammar Police..... Yes, there are a few errors here and there, but nothing so much that it ruined the story for me, or confused me or caused me to call for the author's head or a refund of the highly expensive $2.99 that I paid for it. It was a great read and I highly recommend this book. If you want to read a book about people stranded out in the wilderness with a blood thirsty werewolf that their weapons have little to no effect on, then this is the book for you.
What I did not like was there were a few editing and spelling/word choice imperfections that very slightly lowered the quality of this story. The writer, and whoever edited Beneath a Winter Moon, once started a major change of action by a character without starting a new chapter or unit. That was a bit confusing and irritating. The writer and editor did not catch the incorrect use of homonyms such as site for sight, etc. Overall, Beneath a Winter Moon was an engrosing and unpredicatable story which kept rolling and rolling into new and unexpected story lines that were enjoyable. One example of this is when the two main protagonists went spelunking to escape the werewolf. I purchased this Kindle book through Amazon and I will re-read it sometime in the future. If you like outdoor, wilderness, supernatural animal versus hunters with military backgrounds thrillers, then you will probably like Beneath a Winter Moon.
Wilderness, werewolves, survival.
Well written story. The characters work well and the plot was well thought out. Didn't leave you hanging at the end. Was a good long read and not a misleading "short" book.
I like Werewolf books that take place away from cities. This hit the mark for me. In the wild you can get away with more in these type of books without all the questions.(how come no one has seen this before now.)
Have recommended this book to anyone who will listen and those that do listen are happy they did.
Plus on a personal note- As a guy with two large smart dogs. I like books that have dogs. I always wind up being more afraid for the dog than the people. I take my dogs everywhere with me and if the time came when I could go on my own hunting trip, I might not take them after reading this. I would rather my friends get eaten than my dogs. ;)
Updated to 4 stars on 1-7-16 because I always recommend this book to new readers or people looking for a well written werewolf genre book. Most of my reviews of good books only get 3 stars because no one looking for a book wants to read a review of 5 stars and "Book was great! Loved it."
Wish author did more books like this. Worth the $
