review 1: I generally love books about the middle ages and this one was ok. I liked how Bablyonne is a feisty, spirited character. While she clings strongly to her beliefs that the Roman priests are bad, she hears the discourse between Father Isidore and the Perfects, and eventually grow...

review 1: Picked it up on a free book exchange shelf while at the Dolphin Bay hotel in Hawaii (in Hilo on the big island). Crappy teen sci-fi/horror novel by an Australian author. Generation ship turns to living organism due to cosmic encounter, and its 'immune system' tries to kill all ...

language
English

review 1: You know what hell is? Apparently, hell is having to attend a support group for vampires every Tuesday night for all of eternity. Jinks has created a more realistic group of vampires, but they're a terribly sad lot. They feel sick all the time, they struggle to meet their own mos...

language
English
3.44 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I was somewhat disappointed by this one. I had quite enjoyed "The Reformed Vampire Support Group", and was looking forward to more of the same dry wit. Unfortunately, not only is the "Abused Werewolf..." lacking in a distinct narrative voice (the protagonist sounds like any 15 ye...

review 1: I enjoyed reading How To Catch A Bogle a Victorian fantasy novel by Catherine Jinks. Birdie, the heroine, is an apprentice to Alfred the Bogler. She's bogle bait. Bogles are monsters who consume children. The action begins quickly in this one. Readers soon see Alfred and Birdie h...

review 1: This is a fun book set in a real London at a time when many children are lucky just to get a job as a chimney sweep or an assistant to a bogle catcher. Turns out that there are many kinds of bogles who live in people's homes, out buildings or sewers. Bogles eat children. A child ...

review 1: To be honest, I didn't really enjoy The Genius Wars. It wasn't what I expected and it wasn't as great as the other previous books of this trilogy. The only good part of this book was that we got to see another side of Prosper English. We got to see him break down from his former ...
The Abused Werewolf Support Group (2014)
language
English
3.44 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This isn't really much about werewolves. It's really more of an action/adventure book. Toby, the protagonist, is kidnapped early on, and most of the book is about his attempted escape, the attempted rescue, and the attempted revenge on the kidnappers, who supposedly run somethi...
