Description

Then she opened her mouth to scream—and recognised me. It was what I'd been waiting for. She froze. She looked into my eyes. She said, "It's you." Meet Jake. A bit on the elderly side (he turns 201 in March), but you'd never suspect it. Nonstop sex and exercise will do that for you—and a diet with lots of animal protein. Jake is a werewolf, and after the unfortunate and violent death of his one contemporary, he is now the last of his species. Although he is physically healthy, Jake is deeply distraught and lonely. Jake's depression has carried him to the point where he is actually contemplating suicide—even if it means terminating a legend thousands of years old. It would seem to be easy enough for him to end everything. But for very different reasons there are two dangerous groups pursuing him who will stop at nothing to keep him alive. Here is a powerful, definitive new version of the werewolf legend—mesmerising and incredibly sexy. In Jake, Glen Duncan has given us a werewolf for the twenty-first century—a man whose deeds can only be described as monstrous but who is in some magical way deeply human. One of the most original, audacious, and terrifying novels in years. From the Hardcover edition.

Professional reviews

"Jake is thought to be the world's last werewolf. Chronicling his final months, narrator Robin Sachs expertly captures his introspection and fatalism, followed by his determination to live when he discovers he's no longer alone. Just as Jake is being hunted by anti-paranormal agents and stalked by vampires that want his help to walk in daylight, he finds her. Tallulah--a female werewolf. Sachs leads listeners through Jake's emotional journey to reclaim his life and protect the woman with whom he wants to build a future. Languidly, Sachs evokes Jake's reminiscing tones as he writes journal entries about his overwhelming hungers and insatiable lusts. Tight pacing secures listeners' attention to Duncan's paranormal thriller. J.M. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
