Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The second episode in a series projected to run to at least six cranks up the stakes, the gore, the body count and the number of super-powered were-creatures as the kingdom of Westland is overwhelmed by huge armies of invaders. The cruel, depraved, deposed Lion King (take that, Disney) sits besieged in his tower, but his mad werelion son Lucas and wererat minion Vankaskan remain free--to kidnap werefox Lady Gretchen and sneak out through the sewers of Highcliff. In pursuit goes werewolf/reluctant royal heir Drew and best buddy/romantic complication Whitley, unaware that they are heading straight into the claws of Catlord invaders led by Onyx, a gigantic werepanther. Frequently punctuated with blood-spattered massacres and atrocities, the multi-threaded plot speeds its way to a pair of separate climactic battles. One leaves Drew's allies scattered in flight, and the other puts Drew aboard a slave ship bound for a gladiatorial arena overseas. Give Jobling a hand for crafting a sequel that's even more lurid and action packed than the opener. (Fantasy. 12-15)
School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up—In the first book in this series, Drew learned that he is a Werewolf and heir to the throne of Lyssia. Now he and his Werelord allies have overthrown the evil Werelions and are trying to consolidate power around him. But when his lady love, the improbably matured Werefox Gretchen, is kidnapped by his half brother (and enemy Werelion), Drew derails everyone's plans by going after her, accompanied only by Whitley, a Werebear with a romantic agenda of her own. Throughout his adventures, Drew predictably waffles about whether he can really be king or if he would rather stay a "free man." Various secondary characters are developed, and the plot sometimes gets bogged down in the complicated power struggles. "Wereworld" seems to be aiming to be a "Game of Thrones" for the tween set, but lacks the strong narrative thrust of that series. Purchase where the first book is popular.—Eliza Langhans, Hatfield Public Library, MA

    Greatly Recommended- A new take on how the protagonist finds he is meant for greatness

    Taking place not long after the end of the first book, Drew continues on his protagonist path. Like other stories, he is ordinary, if only slightly off from the other lower class citizens. Drew had found out he was heir to a thrown once taken by lions. He looses his foster family and fights for his freedom of an increasingly more oppressing life.

    Rage of Lions takes place after the revolt against the King. The last of the enemy have been holed up inside the castle. Drew seeks to run away from his destiny. When his path leads him away from the Lion King, he gladly sets off.

    This story is filled with more suspense than the Eragon series. Action is not short on Drew's path, as is the emotional aspect. Blossoming relationships and tension thicker than blood makes you want to read until the end.

    In this second installment of the Wereworld series, young Wolflo

    In this second installment of the Wereworld series, young Wolflord Drew goes on a mission to capture his angry half-brother, the Werelion Lucas. Meanwhile, civil war is brewing in Lyssia. I was really impressed with the world-building of the first book of this series, Rise of the Wolf, so I eagerly rushed to get the second book as soon as it was published. Rage of Lions was action-packed, while thickening the plot by introducing moral dilemmas--the consequences of bad choices with good intentions. I think this book didn't quite hold par with the first one, but it was certainly enough to keep me eager for the third installment, Shadow of the Hawk, which is coming soon. I was a little disappointed with the cliff-hanger ending. I understand that Jobling can't tie up all his loose ends, but certainly he could have made it a little more satisfying.

    Good

    Personally, I feel this wasn't as good as the first book. While I still thought it was great, it just didn't interest me as much as the prequal.

    Pretty good if "good" means awesome and amazing!

    If you're looking for a good and suspensful book. This iis the one for you. It has many twists and turns, with a cliffhanger on the end of almost every chapter, including the end. However, one should note that if you do not read the first book (Rise of the Wolf) beforehand, this book will be confusing and boring. I personally believe that this book should get ten stars. You're amazing Curtis Jobling!
