Drew discovers his life is as the worst one, suddenly everybody wants to kill him, including the man he believed to be his father. He flees, hides, but destiny puts enemies and good friends on his way. These friends reveal his true story and show him where his place is in that world inhabited by werecreatures avid for power.

Rise of the Wolf is book one of a series created by Curtis Jobling; the author created a fictional world with human beings and werelords—humans that can change to boars, foxes, serpents, wolves…

They fight for power, love and other stuff.

It is a delightful book, very creative and interesting. The plot and characters are complex; you can´t predict what will happen. It captives you the moment you start the reading and you don´t want to stop until reaching the last page. ( )

The author created a fictional world with human beings and werelords, humans that can change into boars, foxes, serpents, wolves… they fight for power, love and other stuff. Very creative and interesting.

Drew´s life changes drastically; all of a sudden, everybody wants to kill him, including the man he thought was his father. He flees, hides, but the destiny put enemies and good friends in his way. These friends reveal his true story and show where his place is in that world inhabited by werecreatures avid for power.

The book is full of action, twists and turns that keep the story moving forward in a rushed rhythm. You can´t predict what comes next.

It´s a complex story and a little hard to understand what´s going on because there´s a mystery around Drew. You always ask yourself who Drew is. Well, I´ll just reveal that he is an intriguing character that seems powerless in the beginning but shows his strength when he has to survive in an hostile and unknown world. ( )

I loved the world in this story, a world where humans are ruled by werelords, shape-shifters with extraordinary powers that can transform into animals.
Our hero, Drew, believes he is just a shepherd's son. In fact he is the last of the werewolves, and if the werelion king gets his way he will soon join the rest of his race.
A fast paced adventure, I enjoyed thoroughly.

My only complain: This is a men's world. The ladies just look pretty and wait to be rescued.

I read this book out loud to my son. It was an okay fantasy story. I did have quite a few problems with it. My husband and son both listened along. My husband said 3 stars and my son 4 stars.

When Drew’s mother is brutally murdered Drew finds out he is a werewolf, but not just any werewolf. Drew is the long lost heir to the murdered Wolf-King’s throne and he will have to survive a whole bevy of enemies if he is going to claim his inheritance...or at least just stay alive.

This is a complex world with a lot of action and politics. However, some of the language was pretty awkward (which we all especially noticed because I was reading it out loud). There are a lot of archaic terms and a lot of very stilted sounding language. It just sounds clumsy at points. And the length of sentences...OMG...buy me an oxygen tank here...some of them were nearly a paragraph long.

This is a very violent story. It is marketed as middle grade and my son (at 7 years old) is just starting to read middle grade books like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. I would recommend for older middle grade readers only. The injuries the characters get are incredibly explicit and numerous.

There are also many scenes where characters are beaten into unconsciousness and tortured. It was a bit intense for a middle grade novel and we almost stopped reading it because it was upsetting to my son. He just didn't understand why someone would be so cruel. He is a very enthusiastic reader, but he wants nothing more to do with this series. Maybe when he gets older he will revisit it.

My last complaint is the lack of strong female heroines. This is more apparent at the beginning of the book. In the beginning of the book there is Drew's mother (who is quickly slaughtered to death) and a noble girl named Gretchen who is a really obnoxious and nasty girl (pretty much your typical spoiled princess). I didn't appreciate the portrayal of women as generally helpless and conceited. Gretchen does gain more depth as the story continues and we do meet a couple other women characters towards the end of the book who have stronger and more interesting personalities.

I guess just be aware that this is a very male oriented world and the story was in general very chauvinistic. I probably think about this more than most because I have a young boy in the house who is already under the impression that girls wear glitter, lots of pink, and are silly and helpless. I would rather he see girls as people who are just as capable as he is.

Okay enough ranting. I guess I had a lot to say about this book. It's not an awful story but there are much better middle grade books out there. Check out Harry Potter JK Rowling, the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan, The Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan, and Brandon Mull's Fablehaven and Five Kingdoms series. All of those series are much better middle grade reads. ( )

Drew is different. He's always known it. He's just never known how, or why. He confesses this to his mother, but before she can tell him how, something terrible happens. Something terrible that is blamed on him, forcing him to flee. He is a monster. Or so they think.Years later, he is found in the woods standing over a boy, who had fainted at the sight of him as a monster. Captured and taken to the king, Drew realizes that he is not a monster. He never was. He has a gift, a gift that many possess. Drew is a werelord, the last of the Werewolves. This an ability thought to have died out years ago. It is an ability hated, and an ability feared. Now Drew is a symbol of hope for the people, and now he is being hunted. What's a werewolf to do?
Rise of The Wolf is a very good book. Curtis Jobling doesn't just have werewolves. Oh no, he branches out into werelions and werefoxes and even wereotters! Imagination is skillfully woven into this new world with no limitations to how far it can reach. He does a wonderful job explaining how this can happen, the plot is filled with just the right amount of action and emotion, and the details are amazing. If you're looking for a good fantasy book, this is one to read! ( )
