Thought the description was interesting. the book was hard at first to get into but the idea intrigued me after reading children's books about the first dog, i have learned a number of things about anthropology and archaeology, and the idea of finding the first tamed animal by scientific discovery is hard to fathom. I know that the genetic information states that dogs are related to wolves, and only wolves, and that changes in physiological structures did not happen first while genetic information has provided an earlier diversion of canines from wolves. That makes it hard to believe that the development of werewolves into pets would be a good idea. This book has a dramatic and shocking way of telling this story. The almost savage slavery and brutality that was given to the characters of this story make it dramatic, and epic. This is a great new perspective of werewolves, and mans control of nature.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Tamed, by Douglas Brown, is vicious and brilliant in every aspect of the words – from the horrific, detailed scenes right down to its absorbing narrative – I did not put this book down until I was finished. What a breath of fresh air and such a new take on the boring old stories about werewolves! I thought they’d taken the subject as far as it could go, but Brown proved me wrong. I have had the pleasure of reading Brown’s work in the past and was very impressed with the depth of his imagination. Tamed, though a work of fiction, is alarming. Just like the equally terrifying book, Jurassic Park, I found myself wondering, with science and technology moving at such a tremendous rate, it would be all too easy to alter human DNA, creating a new species such as these. Brown proves himself a master of not only epic fantasy fiction, but modern fantasy fiction as well. The fluidity of Brown’s words, the humorous dialog and imaginative scenes make Tamed an engaging read. It is the perfect book to take along on a flight as you’ll find yourself bound and salivating until you finish it. Just ignore the odd stares from the other passengers. - Ashley L.
