"Waiting on Wednesday" Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf by Curtis Jobling

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection from me is:

Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf by Curtis Jobling

This cover is very expressive, I love the dual intent and detail on gives you a really good idea of what the book is about, even before you read the synopsis.

Book Synopsis from Amazon:
‘YOU’RE THE LAST OF THE WEREWOLVES SON. DON’T FIGHT IT . . . CONQUER IT.’ When the air is clear, sixteen year-old Drew Ferran can pick up the scent of a predator. When the moon breaks through the clouds, a terrifying fever grips him. And when a vicious beast invades his home, his gums begin to tear, his fingers become claws, and Drew transforms . . . Forced to flee the family he loves, Drew seeks refuge in the most godforsaken parts of Lyssia. But when he is captured by Lord Bergan’s men, Drew must prove he is not the enemy. Can Drew battle the werecreatures determined to destroy him – and master the animal within?' 

Check out the book's trailer as well, this book looks really exciting if you ask me, and it's a debut by a Brit author.  I'm really looking forward to it, with most of the books I've read recently featuring female heroines or as the main character, this will be a welcome read :)

Interesting. Sounds like a combo between paranormal and fantasy.
Great pick!
