The Werewolves Who Weren’t by T. C. Shelley is the enchanting second book in this wonderful new series that introduced us to Sam, who is half-monster and half-fairy. Accompanied by his gargoyle friends, Bladder, Wheedle and Spigot, Sam is now living with the Kavanahs, a loving human family.
Determined to live a human life, he is about to start secondary school. Before he has time to become used to classes and lessons however, he discovers there are monsters at school too!
New friends, Amira, Hazel and Wilfred, explain that they are shifters, both human and dog. Sam asks if they are like werewolves? They tell him, “No way!” and explain that they are two souls in one. Sam is intrigued and soon becomes part of their, and their families, lives.
Soon, however, Sam begins to suspect that someone or something is afoot and up to no good. When his new friends disappear he is bound to discover their whereabouts. Forced back into the world of monsters, he is determined to save their lives.
But, will it mean losing the family that he has grown to love?
This book is both magical and quirky and sometimes a little scary, although in a thrilling, heart-wrenching way that makes the reader long to discover the outcome all the while wondering if it will end well.
The author has created so many amazing and diverse characters to titillate the imagination and keep the reader’s heart a-flutter as both good and bad play their parts.
A book to be enjoyed by young and old alike. A definite must read for 2021!
The Werewolves Who Weren’t is available in paperback and e-book
