    The Clan is kick ass!

    There are not many authors who can get away with multi genre stories but Harry Shannon does it in style with a mix of crime noir, thriller and horror, there is something for everyone in "Clan".

    I am a fan of Harry's, I try to buy everything he writes and that says something!
    Make a brew or something stronger, kick back in your favorite chair and devour "Clan" I did!

    Harry's characters are very strong, "Joe Case" is so cool! You care for them and turn pages so fast to make sure your favorite is still alive.

    After finishing "Clan" I would say it is my favorite Harry Shannon book, I cringe as I say this because he has done so many good books but this one takes the biscuit. Scares, thrills and action galore. You won't be able to put this down.

    WHHHooooooooOOOOOooooo. Here come the werewolves!

    Crime, Horror, Thriller! Loved it!

    Harry Shannon had me at "Werewolf", who doesn't love a good story with Werewolves? But, wait! There's more! As I continued to read, I then realized it was a diversified thriller, horror, intermingled with crime, and humor. Several brilliant collective stories beautifully woven together. The book is rich in characters, with the most interesting personalities. Harry Shannon draws you into his dark world that he has created, and you soon realize "Toto. . . we are not in Kansas anymore."

    If you're looking for an exciting read, you've found it in "CLAN."

    Coincidently, I am planning a weekend to Lake Tahoe, now after reading "Clan", I will be glancing behind both shoulders. OOOOOooooooOOOOOooo...

    Thrill ride

    I just couldn't put this book down. It grabed a hold of me and wouldn't let go. It had me wondering who was on what side. From the Russian Mob looking for their money, to a broken ex-cop looking for his good for nothing brother-in-law, to a species that has survived hundreds of years. You won't be disapointed. This is a fantastic read, and I look forward to more!

    Suspenseful and fun!

    Clan is a great werewolf story - and this is from someone who doesn't normally read about werewolves. It's exciting, gory and suspenseful. There are a few surprising twists and turns, and you'll be left guessing who is part of the werewolf clan. Awesome book; I highly recommend it.

    CLAN - A Cross-Genre Masterpiece

    With CLAN, Harry Shannon takes his already prodigious writing talent up another notch. I'll warn everybody right away - once you start this book, don't plan on doing anything else for as many hours as it takes you to finish the novel. I found myself hooked right on the first page and could not put CLAN down until I'd finished it. It is one hell of a thrill ride that kept me guessing what would happen next. The main characters are all people you readily and swiftly begin to care about, and even Shannon's colorful secondary characters are all intriguing. CLAN combines the best elements of a thriller, hard-boiled crime drama, horror story and romance into a thoroughly delectable cross-genre romp.

    CLAN is one of the most enjoyable novels I've read in 2011 and easily ranks as one of Shannon's finest tales - and perhaps his very best. There isn't a dull moment, the action and tension is relentless, and the novel offers frights galore. CLAN is a fantastic book to curl up with - whether at the beach or in front of a roaring fire. Just make certain that you leave a few lights on as you 'devour' this novel, as you may find the extra lighting necessary to maintain your own feelings of safety and security.

    CLAN is a true cross-genre masterpiece and as vastly entertaining a read as you are likely to find anywhere.

    Deep, Insightful and TERRIFYING!

    Harry Shannon is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. This is not so much that he writes great horror (which he does), or mysteries (ditto that). It's because he first writes about interesting characters and fleshes them out so that simply reading about them would be sufficient to snare any reader into the worlds he creates.

    CLAN is just such a novel. Great characters aren't enough for Mr. Shannon, though. He hurls his people into one of the better-told, and really fascinating werewolf tales. Don't be concerned that this is a case where focus on character is used to overshadow, or diminish the horror and gore elements normally seen in such stories (it IS werewolves, after all). There's plenty here for everybody!

    A great book from an extremely talented (and very nice) author. I also suggest checking out his Mick Callahan novels.

    Prolouge

    Prolouge "Quick! We have to escape!" Tansar yowled as flames engulfed her. The golden she-cat could ear the pounding roar of fire in her ears. "We must escape at once!" Bluepelt, the medicine cat, yowled. Emerging from the thistles, Pigeonflight and his apprentice, Thistlepaw, arrived. Tanstar, breathing heavily, yowled, "Where are the others?" "I don't know. But we have to get them out of here at once! Or we'll be-" His voice trailed off as a tree surrounded by flames crashed down into the elders' den. "No!" Bluepelt yowled, trying to dodge the flames. The silhouettes of two cats appeared crouching on the Highrock. Tanstar whipped around. "Who is there?" she meowed, confusion in her emerald eyes. Just then, another tree tipped over, casting shadows over Tanstar's head. "Tanstar, look out!" Pigeonflight yowled. Tanstar launched herself onto the back off a treestump, digging her claws into it. More flames sparked into the air, nearly burning Tanstar's pelt off. "Quick! Help the others!" Bluepelt meowed. Tanstar's head pounded underneath the flames of the fire. Shouldering her way through the crowding cats, she came across a water source. She leaped through the nearest branches she could, closing her jaw upon a pile of leaves. Perfect! Tanstar dragged the leaves over to the stream. Crouching down, she scooped up as much water as she could. Dragging it over to where a tree was on fire, she tossed the leaves up into the air, the water colliding with the flames. The fire disappeared, leaving only smoke. A silhouette emerged from the fallen branches burnt with smoke appeared. Bluepelt was allowing Thistlepaw to rest on her shoulder. "Thistlepaw, no!" Pigeonflight exclaimed, rushing over toward his apprentice. Tanstar reared back into the remaining flames. Whipping her head around, she splashed more water on the fire, slowly putting it out. Dizzy with exhaustion, Tanstar passed out, blurred images swiping through her head. End of prolouge.

    (((Not like Leafpool (In the book(s)Warriors: Power of the Three:Long Shadows or Sunrise) please. Please be a warrior or a Medicine Cat. Not both please. You can have powers though. Please post your info at the result that has descriptions. I don't remember what result it is, so tap around each result to see which result it is.)))
