The Forsaken Boy, A Werewolf Novel by Troy Tradup
I think this is probably one of the best werewolf books I’ve ever read. It’s true that it’s a very dark and even gruesome story, but it’s not just mindless violence. It’s there for a reason, and the book is a thought-provoking exploration of human nature. It’s very hard to pull off a story where the same character is both the hero AND the villain, but Brandon is both.
I have to say, now that I got my Kindle I’m reading more often than before. Since I got this wonderful device I have read 7 books. This is my second (out of three) werewolf books. My first one I haven’t finished reading it yet but this one caught my eye right away.
In a world overpopulated with sparkling vampire novels and teen supernatural books, this was fresh take on an old tale. Absolutely compelling and gory.
Brandon was hated from the minute he arrived town. He was called weirdo, queer, tonto, redskin among other names. At first you’re feeling sorry for the central character who’s been abused, betrayed, and tormented, by life in general, classmates and worst of all his own family. Then when he’s turned by someone you won’t see coming is when the story really takes off rapidly down a dark and blood soaked path. His best friend and mom along with a girl new in town that Brandon likes, are the center of the story. There are other characters that populated the book but you can imaging what will happen to them.
For anyone who likes werewolf tales and doesn’t mind some bloody scenes, this one is sure to fascinate you.
