For fans (and non-fans!) of werewolf stories!
Wolfsong (Tales from the Crescent) takes place on a world populated by a variety of species, dealing mainly with hawks, humans, and werewolves. The reader follows the exploits of one squad of hawks. After suffering a tragedy at the hands of a renegade werewolf, the squad swears to hunt the rogue down with the help of another werewolf.
I have never been a fan of werewolf stories, nor do I actively pursue looking for them, but I won a copy of this ebook on a blogger’s website and decided to give it a try. At times I found myself backtracking a bit as I wasn’t sure if I missed an introduction of a character. There was a time when I wasn’t sure who was who, and what they were supposed to be doing, but you know what? That’s on me, I’m sure. I was a bit distracted. It’s a testament to the world Sked created. I was completely caught up in the story, yearning for the hawks to exact a little retribution, meaning I couldn’t wait for the rogue werewolf to get his comeuppance. I would have loved to learn more about the origins of the Hawks and how they came to become the peacekeepers of the Crescent. I’m really hoping the author will go into more detail in the second book, about the history of the species, as she did some an awesome job of creating a highly detailed world I could easily visualize.
If you like reading about alternate worlds where other creatures exist, you need to give this one a try! Take it from someone that doesn’t like werewolves, you’ll like this story!
Great job, J.H. Sked! I’m looking forward to the next story in this series!
