I have to say this is a very tough review to do because the way I felt about the book seemed to change quite dramatically depending on where I was up to. I did like that I thought I knew exactly what was going on and I was half right on one thing but a lot of the story really surprised me. I was a little surprised that there wasn't really much about Cowboy in this story but the new characters definitely made things interesting. I was slightly disappointed in some things but overall the story did keep me interested and I am interested to now how things are going to develop in "Shifters Rule" especially after the tease ending.
Werewolves Rule picks up a few months after Vampires Rule ended and the beginning few chapters are quite confusing. Jack has been hunting with his brother Billy and one night while out hunting they are confronted by a couple of pumped up werewolves, these werewolves attack not only with their claws but also with silver knives. Jack gets stabbed by one of the werewolves and while Billy and Jack make their getaway it becomes apparent that Jack isn't recoving as quickly as he should. Jack also has an interesting dream while they are making their getaway, in this dream he is between Silver and another woman and the other woman who seems familiar to him ends out killing him in his dream. Later that night back at the house Jack is still having trouble recovering when a group of vampires turn up wanting to kill him, Jack is losing the battle when the mysterious girl from his dream turns up and takes out all the vampires except one in a matter of seconds. This leaves Jack with a lot to deal with, the mysterious girl that has shown up with a past that he never knew about, the problems that are developing between him and Silver, the fact that both vampires and werewolves are hunting him and wanting him dead and of course the whole destiny thing with Jersey.
Opening Line: Blood seeped through Jack's tightly aligned fingers. No matter how hard he pressed on the wound, it continued to hemorrhage and he was beyond scared. During his time as a vampire, Jack had become unusually attuned to the workings of his own body. He didn't need a psychic to tell him that he was in deep trouble. The blood should have stopped flowing by now. In fact the wound should have healed over fifteen minutes ago.
Favourite Line: "There is always some truth in every lie. They tangle together in a tightly woven trap. Your mission is to figure out which part is the lie and which part is the truth".
Favourite Character: So I know that this is probably going to sound a bit weird but to be completely honest both Jack and Silver really annoyed me quite a lot in this book to the point that I wanted to reach in and kill them both myself. Therefore, my favourite character was actually Vanessa, I liked her a lot in Vampires Rule and in Werewolves Rule we got to see more of her and I really liked the way that she carried herself.
