Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the Wereworld series by Curtis Jobling:

Rise of the Wolf

“Jobling’s debut initiates a sure-to-be-long series of Wereworld tales, pure fantasy adventure with plenty of horror in the mix…this will find broad appeal among lovers of adventure fantasy, especially those mourning the end of John Flanagan's Ranger’s Apprentice.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[A] rousingly gory heroic fantasy…there are plenty of brutal fights for action lovers, and the quest has some stirring moments. Give this series opener to fans of Flanagan’s Ranger’s Apprentice series.”—Booklist

“In this thrilling middle-grade debut, first in the Wereworld series, British author/illustrator Jobling (the designer of the Bob the Builder TV series) creates a memorable new setting in which were-creatures rule…a thoroughly enjoyable adventure that makes particularly inventive use of its shape-shifter elements and mythology.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Even reluctant readers should enjoy Wereworld as the first in a new series…as a fantasy world it is superior to Eragon, and pure fun.”—The Times (London)

“The nail-biting pace and plot turns will keep the reader wondering exactly how Drew will resolve it all…there is enough romantic heat, girl power, and vulnerable tough guys to guarantee interest from the Twilight crowd.”—BCCB

“This first book in the series hits all the bases for a fairy tale with fangs…this will be a popular book, particularly for the young sword and sorcery fan contingent.”—Library Media Connections

“Assured and lively enough to captivate with its strong world building and approachable language…will draw followers to the sequel like Drew to a damsel in distress.”—VOYA

“Can he write it?  Yes, he can!...a good mix of the traditional pre-industrial society with shape-shifters, and looks like it could be the start of a very fun ride.”—Geek Dad on Wired.com

Rage of Lions

“Give Jobling a… hand for crafting a sequel that’s even more lurid and action packed than the opener.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Game of Thrones for the tween set...”—School Library Journal

Shadow of the Hawk

“Plotlines and were-creatures proliferate …there’s enough spilled blood and shape changing here to appease the most demanding fans of either.”—Booklist

    Read this book!


    In this book, Drew is trying to find people who will fight to overthrow the evil- and mentally unstable- lion king Lucas. He goes to the White Sea in search of allies, since that seems to be the only place where Lucas and his Bastian allies are being defeated. Meanwhile, Onyx, pantherlord of Bast, is trying to take Sturmland in the cold and icy north. But his men aren't used to the cold, and are afraid and uncomfortable with the snow. Then, he is forced to work with Lucas, whom he loathes, even though they are allies. Lucas proposes a plan that will destroy Sturmish resistance- but it is so evil and twisted that even Onyx is afraid. Hector, or Blackhand, remains in control of Icegarden, and has made an alliance with the Crows. His brother's evil spirit continues to haunt him, and is growing stronger. Trent and Gretchen have begun to lead a group of rebels, the Harriers of Hedgemoor, in attacks on the Lion and his allies. But they are outnumbered, and are up against trained warriors, while they are mostly farmers.

    Decent

    This is possibly the least interesting book in the series (in my opinion). The plot was confusing at times, some parts were very blande and weren't eye-catching, and the many stories just made me, to be honest, annoyed. I would reccomend this to people who really love the series, or just want a good fantasy book to read. However, if the things listed above aren't your cup of tea, this book may not be for you.
