Overview

It takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf.

Sylvester James knows what it is to be haunted. His mother died giving birth to him and his father never let him forget it; until the night he was butchered by a werewolf--the night a full moon ruined his life.

Alone in the world, Sylvester is taken in by Michael Winterfox, a Cheyenne mystic. Winterfox, once a werewolf hunter, trains the boy to be a warrior--teaching him how to block out pain, stalk, fight, and kill.

Bit by bit all that makes Sylvester human is sacrificed to the hunt. Now, Sylvester's hatred has become a monster all its own, robbing him of conscience and conviction as surely as the Beast's bite. As he follows his vendetta into the outlands of the occult, options become scarce. And he learns it takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf...

To kill a werewolf, it takes a hunter with a perfect willingness to die.

    Doubleshot Reviews book review

    Evil takes on many forms and for the main character, Sylvester Logan James, in Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter by Brian P. Easton, that evil comes in the form of a werewolf and the haunting memory of watching his father die at the vicious claws of the beast. The prose used by Easton to tell our main character's tale wraps around you like those claws and holds on tight forcing you to live through the terrifying and touching life of Sylvester. The life of our protagonist was most definitely not an easy one and the author used his talent to piece together his life in such vivid detail that I felt the pain, sorrow, anger, fear and love that continually pushed Sylvester to do what he felt must be done in order to avenge his father's death. Yes, even at his lowest points where Sylvester is preparing or has already done some inexplicable things I still cared about him and what would happen to him should he continue down this path of destruction.

    Another important character in Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter is Michael Winterfox, a Cheyenne mystic. Michael takes over care of Sylvester upon the death of his father and trains Sylvester to be a warrior. To hunt the beast that took his family from him. Michael is a kind and wise man, full of knowledge that has been passed to him and he does all he can to instill these traits into Sylvester as he prepares to seek his revenge.

    Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter takes us to many locations. A POW camp in Vietnam, the Louisiana bayous and the mountainous regions and forests of Canada, just to name a few. The details put into the locations, along with the depth and description of the characters our hunter comes in contact with add an element to the story that makes it nearly tangible. The action is thrilling. It's dangerous. It's bloody....and I loved it! There are no punches pulled in this book. Easton tells it like it is. The description of the hunt and kills are descriptive and gory. It's not gory purely for the sake of being gory, but it is definitely a visual picture that is painted.

    To say I loved this book is an understatement, Brian Easton tells a story that is a must read for anyone who enjoys tales of werewolves and for anyone interested in trying out a new genre.

    Surprisingly Good Story

    I had heard about this book from others but really wasn't sure. One day on impulse I bought the eBook. I have to admit that I am pleasantly surprised by how good the book is. You really find yourself kind of rooting for the Sylvester in his quest to rid the world of werewolves. Just when you think there is a lull in the action, the story takes a turn and you are off and running with Sylvester. Great story, if you are looking for something a little different to read, this is a great story to get lost in. This isn't some warm fuzzy paranormal romance so if that is what you are looking for, look else where.

    Well written. The main character is well developed with one leg

    Well written. The main character is well developed with one leg planted in the world we see and the other planted in a world we do not. On to 'Heart of Scars'. Good job, Mr. Easton.

    Excellent

    This is a really good book about werewolves and the man that hunts them. It is not a typical werewolf story and has a lot of heart to it going into depth in the life and trials of Sylvester. The story transpires over many years going through many tragedies and triumphs of a man haunted by werewolves. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Just meh

    It's an ok book and I got through it pretty quickly but it seriously lagged in a lot of places. It seemed like Sylvester spent most of his time getting ready to hunt werewolves as opposed to actually doing it. I expected a lot more action and a lot less whining.

    Great book!

    I don't normally write reviews, but I've enjoyed this book so much I had to say so. I'm only 100 pages in and I've loved every word. I can only imagine the rest of the book is just as good, if not better! Mr. Easton many thanks for a great book.
