Howling of a lost soul.

 

As one would expect, I started to read Full Wolf Moon with the clear thought it would be a typical werewolf book. How surprising and refreshing it was to see I was mistaken.

 

Kathy Nappier does a remarkable job drawing her reader within the story with her detailed descriptive accounts and settings. Enter Captain Maxwell Pierce and Doris Tebbe to the formula to this remarkable book and you have strong character involvement to a tale that binds you from the start.

 

Unlike the typical werewolf books, this one is set in 1942, smack in the center of Lakeside-Tulenar Internment Camp, where the Japanese were housed during the war. Doris’ hard stance and convictions to the internees in her camp is somewhat outweighed at times with her inner struggle in dealing with Pierce. Deep down, Pierce has penetrated Tebbe’s self-conscious and suspicions and she is determined not to let him conquer her.

 

Not too long into the read, suspicions as to who may be the ‘bitten’ suspect becomes apparent, yet not so overly revealing to soothe a reader’s inquisition. With twists and turns, some down home healing cures from David Alma Curar, a vital character to this plight, and you have a mix of suspense, thriller, and action intertwined in one book.

 

Kathy spins you around with her conclusion, begging for more. And from the apparent ending, I am sure Kathy is now penning Book Two of Full Wolf Moon as this review is being typed up.

 

Being an avid horror fan, I’ve read numerous books by Stephen King and Anne Rice and have to say, sooner than later, K.L. Nappier will be one of those authors where readers eagerly await to purchase her next book. I rate this as Highly Recommended.
