Review # 171: The Last Werewolf Hunter- The Complete Series by William Woodall

     Young Zach Trewick comes from a long line of loup-garou, (werewolves), but he will do anything to escape the transformation. Unfortunately, his family does not feel the same way, pushing him towards his genetic destiny. So Zach has no choice but to flee his home and seek his excommunicated uncle Justin, whom he has never met, to break the "curse". Along the way he learns the history of the loup-garou, the true meaning of family, the strength of courage, love and trust, and finds a spiritual relationship with God that aids in his quest for normalcy.

     The Last Werewolf Hunter is a three-part supernatural novel, (Cry for the Moon, Behind Blue Eyes, and More Golden than Day), with a Christian twist. I really loved William Woodall's writing style, his clever phraseology kept me rapt with interest throughout the entire book. The level of action was moderate and there was little-to-no violence or gore, however I still found the story to be a page-turner, especially due to the dialogue. I found the characters well-developed, realistic and relatable, Zach, Justin, Eileen, Cameron, Edith and Jolie were some of my favorites to read about - particularly in book three. I thoroughly enjoyed all three parts of the series, although I really liked books two and three, where Zach started to "grow-up" and make decisions about his own destiny. I approve of the message it conveys to the young adult crowd, and wish that there were more books out there like this one. Everyone has their own "inner monster" to deal with, but it is up to the individual to choose how to manage it; with or without faith. I will definitely be looking out for more of William Woodall's books! Recommended for middle school through adult readers.

Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)
