Overview

Clifford Crane has led a tough life - failed marriages, bankruptcy, drug addiction, and a mind-numbing dead-end job. But he's made it through, and now he's nearing retirement. He's looking forward to his golden years, until he meets an ancient Uwharrie Indian shaman, who turns him into a werewolf. She believes Clifford is the red wolf foretold in prophecy, the one who will unite the wolf packs and lead them to victory over the vampires for once and all time. Too bad she doesn't tell him that before she dies. Now, rescuing beautiful young women from the clutches of the undead has its rewards, but will it pay the rent for the next thousand years?
The Draculata Nest is the first in a series of Red Wolf novels, depicting a world where vampires are mere generations away from realizing mankind's destruction, the ultimate goal of the undead and the mysterious beings that created them.
In book one, Clifford finds himself a lone wolf, still grieving the loss of Claire Deerfoot, the one who brought out the beast that lay dormant inside him most of his life. Without the pack bond that keeps a wolf sane, he struggles with his dual nature and the strange compulsions that urge him to prowl the night. When he rescues a beautiful young coed from a visiting vampire, one hunting illegally in the territory of the local nest, he suddenly finds himself a target of revenge.
The visiting Draculata Nest still thirsts for the blood of young Danielle, and now they want to spill Clifford's blood as well. But an unlikely ally surfaces in Roland Trudeau, a high-ranking vampire in the local nest, whose welcome aid seems too good to be true. Soon Clifford finds himself in the middle of a vicious game of vampire politics, a game where the losers die.

    Must Read!

    The Draculata Nest is the first book in the Red Wolf Novels. This is the first book I’ve read by John Hundley. This book follows Clifford Crane a lone wolf who is somewhat satisfied with his lonesome life until he sparks a friendship with two classmates and realizes just how lonely he is. Finding others of his kind also brings along a future that he doesn’t want but falls right into. This is not the typical Werewolf/Vampire story. The book was greatly written and full of excitement and great characters that you can’t help but relate to in some way. I think some of my favorite parts are of the pack “conversations” while in wolf form. It was very difficult to put down. The only bad part was the end. I can’t wait to read more about the Red Wolf and his “pack” of friends. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.

    goodreads review :)

    First I would like to thank the author and books4tomorrow for giving me a copy of this book to read for a review. I want to say that this is a good book. It's got your normal werewolf vs vampire, but oddly not all of them are enemies :) the main character is Clifford, who is in his 60s but became a werewolf in the last decade so he looks much younger. I like the "made were" background, it's a little different, as you can't be bitten to be one. Most of the story is told form Cliffords point of view and some from Danielle's. Now, I'm not a Danielle fan, I kinda wanted to punch her in the face several times, but she wasn't a bad guy, just.... Ugh hahaha I like that Clifford writes in his journal and you get his direct thoughts. I also like Nicole, Danielle's best friend, and Kent, Cliffs vampire friend. I also really like some of the supporting werewolf character's that come into play in the story and I LOVE the whole prophecy concept. Gotta have a few twists every now and again! I definitely look forward to the "what happens next" in the story. The only thing I didn't like, is that some things become long winded. Third person self warring and some descriptions were sometimes a little much, but not enough to keep me from this story. All in all it's a good book :) 3.5 paws from me!
