    **Fantastic, I Loved It!!!!!**

    I loved this book. Reading it was just a joy. It made me want to read more and more. Normally, I don't go for werewolf books, but this one was actually worth the read. It is great wasting time. And it is a fun read.

    Middle School Student's Perspective

    A Book Review of Wereling: Wounded
    By Yup Myu, Grade 7, Yangon International School
    ¿A new creature that wore his skin had crept in to replace him: something from the dark pits of a nightmare, a bestial force of hideous strength.¿ Stephan Cole uses these words to describe the way Kate thought when Tom turned into a werewolf for the first time in Cole¿s novel Wereling: Wounded. How does Kate feel when her friend is a hideous beast? In this novel, Cole develops distractions Tom and Kate must face with while trying to find the mysterious man, Jicaque, who might have a cure for werewolves. Are Tom and Kate strong enough to face all the troubles and dangers awaiting them or will Tom always be a werewolf?
    Tom Anderson¿s relaxing vacation turns into a terrifying nightmare after he is rescued by the Folan family. Initially, no problems for Tom existed even though each member of the Folan family was crazy; Kate with all the dark candles and books on dark magic, and Marcie locking Tom¿s room every night. After being with the Folan family for a month, Tom¿s life transforms into a terrifying nightmare. Marcie kept Tom because she wanted Kate to have a mate so that she would have grandsons and granddaughters. While trying to escape, Tom accidently killed Kate Folan¿s younger brother. As a result, Kate and Tom both flee and try to escape the dangers in the city following one rule ¿Don¿t trust anyone!¿ Trusting even an old woman can be a precarious situation. Eventually, Tom and Kate discover the old woman was a werewolf who was actually trapping them. Soon, they discover something they should have known a long time ago. . . Safety is not possible. Will they ever find Jicaque while facing all the other werewolves tracking them down?
    Cole developed two protagonists with many differences. Kate is willing to do anything to depart from her parents¿ pressure while helping Tom to remain safe. At first, Tom only cares about him being human again, so he cares less about others until he started to have feelings for Kate. Kate is an active character who wants to help people while Tom is a quiet character that would do anything as long as it doesn¿t harm Kate and it helps him get to Jicaque fast. While Kate¿s character looks like she was trying to trap Tom, I still like the way Cole made Kate¿s personality. Because Cole made Kate look evil, many readers¿ attention will be more into the book. All the actions and emotions Cole made Kate do during the novel cause the book to be more attention-grabbing.
    During the climax, Cole develops the struggles of Kate and Tom. When Marcie caught up with Tom and Kate and gave them each two decisions. Tom had a decision if he would be Kate¿s mate or go to a battle while Kate had to make a decision to be confined to a cell or accept the fact that Tom would be her mate. Anyone who has had to make hard decisions that they don¿t like would appreciate reading Wereling: Wounded, because you¿ll find if you¿re same as Tom or Kate. Anyone who also enjoys romance novels would appreciate reading this book. On a scale of one to five, I give this book a four, because it¿s a very attention-grabbing book which would be liked by many teenagers. Wereling: Wounded is the first book from the series The Wereling. It was published in 2003 and it was printed in USA.

    Wereling Series: Book 1- Wounded

    I personally rcommend this book to anyone who has the capability to "get inside the author's head." If you think you can do this and if you have a vivid imagination not to metion a liking towards werewolves, vampires, etc. Then this is most definitaly the choice for you. I have read the first book of the series and I loved it so much I read it all in one night... it was almost like I was addicted and couldn't stop. The next day I went and checked out the sequel and I'm currently reading that. But Stephen Cole is a great author and I highly recommend this series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Reviewed by Jennifer Wardrip, aka "The Genius" for TeensReadToo.com

    Sixteen-year-old Tom Anderson is a typical teen. Ticked off to be spending his summer vacation with his parents and younger brother, Tom storms out of their rented cabin in the Seattle forest, needing some time to himself. Next thing he knows, he's wading in a fast-moving river, with a bear between him and freedom. After being tossed unmercilessly down-river, Tom passes out--and awakes in a strange bed in a strange house. <BR/><BR/>Tom's now at the mercy of the Folan family--mom Marcie, a former nurse, dad Henry, an author, son Wesley, and strange daughter Kate. The family (minus Kate) informs Tom that he's now on an island, cut off from the mainland, with severe injuries sustained from his trip down the river. In terrible pain and totally weak, Tom spends what he believes is a week in the Folan home, recuperating from his wounds yet somehow feeling stranger as every day goes by. <BR/><BR/>Then a shocker from the strange but lovely Kate--Tom's been in the Folan home for a month, not a week, and Marcie, Henry, and Wesley aren't normal family members. They're werewolves, and they're doing everything within their power to change Tom into one to act as Kate's mate. <BR/><BR/>Suddenly, Tom is in fear for his life, and not from the raging river than wounded him. He realizes that Kate Folan may be his only chance for salvation from the beast that now resides within him, and the two set off in the dead of night after a deadly confrontation with Wesley to find a mystery man named Jicaque in New Orleans, who just might be able to cure Tom of the beast he's now living with. <BR/><BR/>WOUNDED is a great, fast-paced read! Touted as young adult book, probably because the hero is sixteen, this story will appeal to any lovers of the paranormal, especially those who enjoy werewolf stories. I've already ordered the final two books in the series, PREY and RESURRECTION, and am looking forward to getting started on them. <BR/><BR/>Definitely a recommended read!

    After finishing Vampire Kisses I read this in only one day since it was not that long of a book. In this is all about werewolfs. Guy almost drowns but gets saved, is taken to a place, meets weird family people who have a secret, meets girl from the family, family wants to turn boy into the beast like the girl but both escape wanting not part of it and are then hunted by the family while trying to find a cure before its too late.

    It was alright

    I thought it was really cool how he wrote the book sooo well. I think that leaving out the full romance between the two charectors either helped it or not but I still enjoyed the book and I can't wait to read more.
