The Last Werewolf


The Last Werewolf

Glen Duncan
On the surface, The Last Werewolf appears to be yet another supernatural thriller of the kind that’s dominated the bestseller lists for the last decade, but it is so much more.  Jacob Marlowe, the last werewolf of the title, spends his time feeding his many appetites while attempting to evade capture by the World Organisation for the Control of Occult Phenomena.  It’s a lonely, violent existence, controlled by a seemingly never-ending cycle of moons.  Haunted by what he’s done as both a man and as a wolf, Jake contemplates his purpose in the world.  Cultured, attractive, and wealthy, he has nearly every material advantage imaginable, but craves the love that he believes he permanently lost when he was bitten.

This novel can be found in the Popular Reading collection on the first floor of the Library.
