In WHERE WOLVES RUN: A Novella of Terror, Jason Parent takes on the legend of the werewolf–endowing it with his own, unique perspective. While I have read numerous tales of this fabled man-beast, Parent approaches the topic from a different angle than the usual traditional tales. Instead of showing us the plight of a man turned at the full moon, we take this journey, first, through the eyes of a boy who never gave a thought to these “imaginary” predators–until one fateful night. . .
Near the town of Rattenberg, beside a formidable Bavarian forest, a young boy named Konrad lives simply with his mother–hunting for their meat and growing their own crops. His father–a man Konrad barely knows–is gone months at a time on his own “business” abroad, stopping home for only brief respites in between.
Then one horrific night Konrad and his mother hear the sound of wolves surrounding their humble dwelling. Hidden away, Konrad sees nothing, but is able to hear all too well the slaughter of the only person he’s ever loved.
This is where the story truly begins.
Instead of taking us through the legends and speculations surrounding these creatures, we are focused on two people: Konrad, and the father he never really knew. I found the characterization of each to be complete, and was easily able to slip into Konrad’s place and “feel” the gamut of new emotions coursing through him. Konrad is thrust so suddenly from the world he thought he knew, and into a nightmare that he isn’t even sure is real. His father has his own secrets and demons that make him another strong–yet completely different–personality to contend with.
How much can a mere boy be expected to believe–especially from a man who’s virtually a stranger to him–one he never KNEW, or felt a part of?
Parent brings plenty of lore into his tale, but dispenses it in small doses–almost as a secondary tale that happens to coincide with the dynamics of Konrad’s broken world. There is bloodshed, brutality, anger, and old memories–long buried–that are brought into the story, as well. The pulse-pounding action had me reading it in one sitting, trying to envision what the final outcome might be.
I am pleased to say that it was a journey well worth taking. It is a tale that has not been told quite this way before, and will leave you thinking of young Konrad long afterwards.
As it states in the book’s synopsis: “THE BEASTS WILL FEED”.
How could anyone NOT be compelled to watch?
Another part I liked was the angle in this story and it wasn't like the many other were-creature stories out there with this crazy romance or the main character has the were "force" and just knows everything without ever having knowledge of it before. There is a old school feel to this story and I highly recommend it for those that enjoy the genre of horror.
you'll enjoy this novella which has a few twist here and there.
