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.
Offering a slightly different take on the genre, this book did not waste time with a detailed background story or long-winded explanations of the creatures' origin. After the reader is introduced to the characters and the current situation, the main part consists of the hunt - but not that of the werewolf, but of his hunter who is set on destroying the beasts who slaughtered his wife. But will he be able to make it back in time to save his boy?
The ending was partly predictable (with a fifty-fifty chance of the outcome) and I appreciated the author's choice. The plot was very focused and lacking any side-stories, which to others may seem too simple, but I found it highly entertaining. Sometimes less is more, and this is another great example for such a story where every sentence counts and you won't find any dead weight.
As for the story itself, I felt pulled in right off the bat. Konrad is a kid who witnesses his mother's death at the hands of beasts. His father's return is unwelcome by the boy, but the secrets (his father) revealed bring to light the horror they find themselves surrounded by.
The ending, for me, was both exciting and slightly disappointing. I don't do spoilers, so you'll have to read it for yourself (and please do).
Overall, a very well-written novella by an author to keep an eye on. Reads like a missing piece of folklore. Where Wolves Run is well worth the price and would make a great read for any summer or fall evening.
I give Where Wolves Run 3.5 stars!
