    2. I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this book. It was amazing. Honestly, this will most likely be more of a gush that a reviewbut hey's my blog right?I don't think I realized this about myself before, but after reading Wereworld I discovered that I love me a character who can get his ass thoroughly kicked, and either run away or luckily win a fight because someone who cared about them helped them outt just because they are the main character, and they are uber, and have super powers an [...]

    3. rantingdragon/wereworlCurtis Jobling, the author of Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf, is also the brains behind Bob the Builder. A book combining Bob the Builder with such a title might not sound very promising to you. In fact, you might note that the very title Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf sounds as corny as you always imagined Bob the Builder to be. Well, if that’s the case, you are spot on.Much epicness in this oneThe first thirty pages introduce us to Drew, a sheepherder who lives in a backwater [...]

    4. Final rating: 4/5 starsNow, this was an interesting book. I missed reading high fantasy and i liked this one. Though i must say that it was pretty much dark, andi have no idea how classified this to be children's book, because it certainly didn't feel like one. I feel that the world building was a bit different than what i was used to - there were many shapeshifters of all kinds and i loved that. No, seriously, it's an interesting world. Oh, and i heard that the sequels were even better! Oh and [...]

    5. Tragedy, romance, flying fur, and sharpened, pointy teeth tearing through flesh top it all off werewolves were not the only things shifting in this book. This is the realm of the Werelords. The noble families are all of different were descent. Fox, wolf, bear, and even boar are all represented in the land of Lyssia. Drew and his brother, Trent grew up on a farm with their mother and father, not unlike many other poor farming families in the kingdom. One night, as Drew and his mother awaited the [...]

    6. The first thing that caught my attention with this book was unbelievably the index. The story is set out in different sections which had my imagination questioning the reasoning for this before I even started reading - Would there be mini-stories? Would it be different points in time? Would it be different characters focalization? Remember this is all before I even started reading the book - the power of the index [ : D ]Another thing I have to mention about the book before I started reading it, [...]

    7. 4.5/5 Review originally published at Cem's Book Hideout.I must confess that I wasn't sure how much I'd enjoy this book. I thought it sounded good, and that I'd likely consider it a decent read, just maybe not for me. Turned out, I loved it! I'm a huge urban fantasy fan, but rarely a fantasy one. But Drew had me won over in a very short space of time.Drew is a strong character, but events early in the book take a tole on his confidence and leave him seeming more vulnerable and a little younger th [...]

    8. Every werewolf book has its perks, needless to say, WEREWORLD: Rise of the Wolf is unquestionably a book which stands out from the rest. With its super attractive cover, I got consumed within a world of adventure, action and speck of romance.The protagonist, Drew, is a character that’s empowered with strength, power and a whole lot of ability. There are many qualities I love however, the main thing I really love how he is extremely determined to do anything.It was heartbreaking to witness Drew [...]

    9. Its very adventurous and its mostly about a farm boy who doesn't know that he is a prince and werewolf. He found himself with lost of experience and mystery. I really recommend it if someone loves fantasy.

    10. 4.25 out of 5 StarsTo be honest, I bought this book on a whim; I thought it was going to be some typical Middle Grade Fantasy series that I've read a bajillion times before--nothing too special. OH. MY. JESUS.i w a s s o w r o n gI was surprised with how hooked I was to this book. And, before I got any further, yes, it did have the typical tropes of a fantasy novel: a farm boy who finds out his very existence is in danger, yet valued and much needed; has a secret ability; is a long lost 'heir'/n [...]

    11. رواية مسلية ولطيفة لكن الترجمة السيئة جعلتني أفقد المتعة أثناء القراءة👎

    12. Imagine a fantasy world on par with that created by Tolkien for his Lord of the Rings books, and then take away the orcs, elves, dwarves, etc. and throw in a werewolf. And some werelions. Oh yes, and whilst you're at it wererats, werefoxes, wereboar and even a wereshark. Add to this a huge amount of writing talent and the end product is Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf by Curtis Jobling, the most exciting fantasy story I have read for years.I imagine that many readers will make the same incorrect ass [...]

    13. I am going to unleash the fan girl within me and say I LOVE THIS BOOK *squealing*!Drew is a farm boy living with his family in a remoted part of Lyssia. He doesn't fit in and, when compared with his twin brother, feels that he can't do much. One night, something terrible happens to him and before he knows it, he finds himself on the run and having to survive in hostile environments full of werecreatures. His journey though is only beginning and he will go through more than he could ever imagine. [...]

    14. Drew is happy with his simple life living on the farm with his parents and his brother, he loves the land and has no plans to leave. Then one terrible night everything changes, after a vicious attack by a mysterious creature Drew is changed forever. Suddenly he doesn't know who he is anymore and he realises that everything he has been told as he was growing up was a lie. Forced to leave his home after a terrible accusation Drew finds himself alone and on the run in one of the most dangerous part [...]

    15. "Rise of the Wolf" is an astonishing fantasy debut and a book, for which I have waited many, many years. For too long the subgenre of the epic fantasy was dying in the vicelike grip of slow-moving, low tension and neverending series of massive proportion and no sense of wonder and adventure at all. With "Rise of the Wolf" Curtis Jobling brings the genre back to its roots and creates an original world, in which he unleashes his imagination to create a fast paced adventure, which could easily be p [...]

    16. This one was recommended to me by an enthusiastic young male reader, and I can see why. Werewolves for young adults, yes, but none of that romance stuff or competition with vampires or anything at all like the horde of Twilight spawns. It's a high fantasy, where the lords, ladies, and nobility are all werecreatures of one sort or another.Drew, our young protagonist, is a simple farm lad. Until the day a creature of some sort crashes through the window and kills his mom and he instinctively trans [...]

    17. This probably sounds like a snobbish criticism, the kind of thing an ass might say, but at times throughout this book it almost seemed like Jobling was trying too hard, at least harder than he needed to in order to tell the story and get the right tone across. Don't get me wrong, I liked this book, enjoyed parts of it a great deal, but there were moments that seemed to be lacking in a way. I can't quite put my finger on it, something about the way the author writes his narrative just had me crin [...]

    18. ‘Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf’ is the first Young Adult paranormal book from Curtis Jobling. Jobling is already a renowned British illustrator and animator, best known for his work on the TV show ‘Bob the Builder’.The Seven Realms is a mythical world where territories and borders are divided according to Lycanthropic rule. These ‘rulers’ are not only the traditional shapeshifting Werewolves, but a plethora of were animals known as ‘Werelords’. There are Wererats and Werefoxes stre [...]

    19. Drew Ferran was raised on a rural farmstead in an area called the Cold Coast. Drew lived the simple life with his family until tragedy struck one night while his father and brother were away at market. A monster invades their home. While terrified, Drew unleashes a beast from within himself that he never knew existed. His father and brother return to a gruesome scene of Drew huddled over his bloodied mother. Confusion and rage ensue as the blame quickly falls on Drew. He is forced to flee his ow [...]

    20. I will be the first to admit that I haven't delved into the werewolf/shape shifting genre. I really wasn't sure how a book like this would turn out to be for younger readers. Needless to say, I was really drawn in by the wonderful realm Curtis Jobling created. Not only that, Drew is such a likeable character. He strives to do the right thing above all. The supporting characters also help add dimension to the story providing for the action that is to follow. The story begins with Drew living in a [...]

    21. ***SPOILER ALERT*** (Lel not really) Drew is an ordinary shepard's son, until a horrifying creature bursts into his home and savagely murders his mother-and Drew transforms into a beast himself. The genre of the book is fantasy, as it does involve magic and werewolf. My overall opinion on the book was would be an 8/10. I thought it deserved at least a 6 when I started the book, but as I progressed through the book, it got better. The book is about a young boy named Drew who adventures on a long [...]

    22. I’d say the best way to describe this book is Pirates of the Caribbean meets Lord of the rings. Curtis Joblings introduces us to a completely unique and exciting world full of unpredictability and adventure.But don’t be fooled by Curtis Joblings graceful writing style, he doesn’t pull any punches. The amount of horrible things that happen to the main characters especially Drew really makes you wonder exactly how much pain can a reader endure. The first half of the book develops at a calm s [...]

    23. This isn't half bad, I might well say. Accordingly, enjoyment registered in my brain as I read it. The author did well with the concept of shape shifting and has quite a good plot going. I was not too unhappy about the amount of leather armor mentioned in the book. I suddenly found out that I like stories to have leather armor in them (please don't tell any livestock you happen to come across (supposing you can speak in their tongue)). The characters were all pretty good, quite well suited to th [...]

    24. Loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!I really like the idea of werelords! All different werecreatures rather than just werewolves. I love the relationship between Drew and Hector and how it was formed and the way it develops throughout the book. There is so much I want to say about this book but I can't without spoiling it! This book is full of adventure, love (not the mushy kind), loss, loyalty, betrayal and friendship! What more could you want!?!

    25. enjoyed this book, wasn't sure if i would or not as i thought i had had enough of night creatures books but this was a little different, a bit dark in places but i got into it very quickly and enjoyed the story, looking forward to the next one. good for a bit of light reading.

    26. A very different outlook to Shapeshifters, it is a blend of fantasy and paranormal. The hero starts out as a shepherd and finds out he is the last of the wolves thus beginning his adventures which eventually leads him to the Westland throne. A must read.

    27. I would hate the series ending. (view spoiler)[h dies at the very end, soon after marrying H (hide spoiler)] <---big spoiler

    28. Let me just say that, right off the bat, I really enjoyed this book and I'm really looking forward to starting the next one in the series. However, my journey to reading this has been a long one!I was pretty interested in this book when I first saw it at our local library a couple years ago. The cover isn't the one that is currently listed in , but one that has a werewolf surrounded by an ornamental frame. It's kind of comic book style cover. I like graphic novels but this book was housed in the [...]

    29. Imagine a world ruled by Werelords--men and women who can shift at will into bears, lions, and serpents. When Drew suddenly discovers he's not only a werewolf but the long-lost heir to the murdered Wolf King's throne, he must use his wits and newfound powers to survive in a land suddenly full of enemies. Drew's the only one who can unite the kingdom in a massive uprising against its tyrant ruler, Leopold the Lion. But the king is hot on Drew's tail and won't rest until he's got the rebel Wolf's [...]

    30. I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this book. It was amazing. Honestly, this will most likely be more of a gush that a reviewbut hey's my blog right?I don't think I realized this about myself before, but after reading Wereworld I discovered that I love me a character who can get his ass thoroughly kicked, and either run away or luckily win a fight because someone who cared about them helped them outt just because they are the main character, and they are uber, and have super powers an [...]
