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

War of the Werelords
"The plethora of living and undead werebeasts—from wolves to sharks and even a woolly mammoth—gives the saga a distinctive character." —Booklist

Best series ever!!!!!
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Man, I don't know what to say about this book. I honestly think this series and especially this book is  close to number one. I was at school and we had a really important test or exam. I finished early so i  ulled this out because i was getting close to finishing it. And then it happened. I won't spoil it but i  started crying so hard. The ending was the saddest thing ever!!!! But overall, this is a must-buy and a  great read

Where do I even start?...Well, I'll just start by saying that this book was the best of the six, an  this series is the best series I have ever read!! Yes, I did cry like a baby for at least an hour when the good people died (I'm not going to day who's saddest as that would give a lot away), but it was still awesome! It pulled on my heartstrings in both good and bad ways, I loved it. The top books on my list are Divergent, THG, HP, TMI, and TID, but Wereworld will forever be at the top. And to the "swag" idiot: Why would you put the name of people who die in your review? Especially someone as significant as the Bearlady, who I cried my heart out over?! That wasn't too smart when NEW readers will read that! Sorry. Rant over.
