Publisher Description

Glen Duncan delivers a powerful, sexy new version of the werewolf legend, a riveting and monstrous thriller--with a profoundly human heart.

Jake Marlowe is the last werewolf. Now just over 200 years old, Jake has an insatiable appreciation for good scotch, books, and the pleasures of the flesh, with a voracious libido and a hunger for meat that drives him crazy each full moon. Although he is physically healthy, Jake has slipped into a deep existential crisis, considering taking his own life and ending a legend that has lived for thousands of years. But there are two dangerous groups--one new, one ancient--with reasons of their own for wanting Jake very much alive.

It doughnuts ,

Exceptional writing

This book will challenge an American reader's literacy, peak his interest in the fantastical and leave him wanting to discover more.

Ghettosavant ,

Howlingly Sexy

I haven't been this moved and compelled by a horror story since Interview with the Vampire. Equal parts James Bond, Horror and swooning romance, I was enraptured before finishing the first page. He writes with such a relish for language that paragraphs left me breathless, heart panting with anticipation.

Arcane Mccaen ,

The last werewolf by glen duncan

This almost reads like a classic romance novel, or a traditional spy novel, or an erotic thriller.
Almost.

Deeply evocotive phrasing
Excessively descriptive wording for nature and strong feelings. Deep feelings

A long, busy life, even for a werewolfe.
An extra long life, is winding down. Ready for it to wind down, too. Eventually, all lives wrap up this way. World weary.

Murder and life. Life and murder. Compulsion for both. Tired of the killing, and the wandering, in a world without love. Then finding love.

Guilty feelings, but talking about feelings has never gotten anyone, anywhere. Especially, a 160 yr old Werewolf who ate his pregnant wife on his first kill. So, when he is targeted as the last werewolf, and is set up to be hunted down, this werewolf, has had enough of life. He seems almost ready to be killed, and to be done with it.

Almost.

The beauty of chronic ambivalence, until he finds something worth living for. Someone.

This book is great.
