I just finished Wolfen by Alianne Donnelly and what can I say but ….”WOW” 😮 It’s a Dystopian master blend of Sci-Fi, Paranormal, and Horror (which makes up 50% of my reading interests 😉 ).
In a dystopian backdrop, humanity has gone to hell in a handbasket as genetically modified monsters known as “Grays” or “Converts”have taken over most of the world. They are creatures who live purely to “breed and feed” with no regard for what they feed on. While these monsters wreak havoc on what’s left of humanity, another subspecies of genetically modified humans known as Wolfen, are trying their best to survive and forget about humans altogether.
Brothers Bryce and Aiden the Alpha and Beta of the Montana Den, encounter Sinna, a young woman whose Wolfen identity was concealed from her. They take her under their wing and try to teach her what it means to be Wolfen. While on their journey home, they are captured by a mad scientist who runs a colony with an iron fist, and performs experiments on captured Wolfen. The trio are forced down different paths and the story unfolds in so many different ways from there.
This book is very well written. I liked the cover, yes I’m a cover snob. I think I only found 2 typos in the whole thing and that’s pretty amazing, (there are some mainstream books that have tons) so the editing was great.
I have to say, this is my favorite Dystopian book to date. It has everything you want, Action, Romance, Good Werewolf/Human hybrids, Bad Werewolf Zombie Monsters, Mad Scientists, Borderline Mad Scientists, and weird colonies that remind you of an episode of The Walking Dead. It was also the first book EVER to give me nightmares! (Kudos to the author for that) I ABSOLUTELY give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend all of you guys/gals get a hold of this beast and sit back and enjoy the ride! I would rate it at as suitable for the 15 years and up crowd because of violence and extreme situations.
