Contract with the Lycanthrope Review

Oh man, what on Earth did I just read? This book was absolutely c.r.a.z.y. and not at all what I expected!

We start out on the party scene, with Doc, Demon and Stoker plotting (or coercing each other) into going to Mexico as their tangled up in corruption and feeling threatened by ‘The Judge’. Whilst doing all the drugs, fighting and shouting at each other, end up having one last big party with some hookers (coz why not) before everything takes a turn for the worse.

If I’m being totally honest, there was not one single character within this novel that I actually liked. Not one. I could have screamed at Doc on occasion how bloody delusional he was. A lot of the characters were ‘at ten’ a lot of the time and I didn’t feel like there was any character development with any of them at any time. I don’t know how any of them could call each other friends, or lovers, or well, I don’t know.

I’ll give it this. Contract with the Lycanthrope is unique. The blurb tells us that the backdrop is the U.S. Supreme Court corruption and nuclear plant sabotage which doesn’t sound like an overly new storyline, but the promises of the wild ride delivers because my word this was a ‘fasten-your-seatbelts-kids because who knows if this rollercoaster is going to do seven thousand upside down flips before rolling you sideways’ kind of ride. It’s jam packed with the supernatural, but not as much werewolf as I was expecting, however; now that I Google lycanthropy, this assumption is totally my fault.

I think my favourite part of the whole thing may have been the Epilogue. I thought that was really clever. Am I intrigued for more in the series? I am actually, despite what I may have said above. I think there is an audience here for this book, but I’m probably just not the perfect fit for it!

You can find this book at many retailers via clicking on the appropriate link on GoodReads (Buying direct from retailers is a good way to support indie authors); however, in the spirit of supporting literacy programs, we would like to point out that you may be able to purchase this book through BetterWorldBooks.
