Not your average werewolf book. More police action packed. Well written, great characters. Fast paced. Because it is book 1 of the series it doesn't have an ending.... so I guess it's on to the next book.

Technically 4 1/2 stars First off, Bad Wolf, is set in the Portland, Oregon area, so it was neat to hear about local street and landmarks and know where certain scenes are taking place. I really enjoyed the story that Tim McGregor created. It is a werewolf story, but it's not a "creature feature" the primary focus is on the characters of Mendes and Gallagher, both of whom I really enjoyed learning about. The author did an excellent job creating interesting backstories for his protagonists, as well as his wolfy antagonist. Another very likable character is Amy, Gallagher's daughter who is interested in her father's work...sometimes a bit too interested for her father's liking. Bad Wolf is one of those books that you can easily visualize what is happening to the characters. The violence was detailed, but I didn't feel it was graphic or overly gory. It was, also, not over the top to where I rolled my eyes at what was happening. It was definitely not your typical werewolf story and I enjoyed the change that Bad Wolf had to offer.

Screenwriter turned novelist, Tim McGregor has written an intense story that is both a criminal suspense story and a horror story. You take your pick. Newby homicide detective is partnered with John Gallagher and their first case together is that of the boy of a young woman that was variously turned apart by feral dogs. To make matters worse, these dogs are led by one crazy guy dude who thinks he is a werewolf or is it? Descriptive and detailed, the story begins slow but picks up towards the middle. I found the mixture of police procedures and horror elements interesting. More action and fewer narratives would have greatly increased my overall enjoyment of the book.

The character Gallagher starts out as someone not very likable. But, as his character builds and more is revealed about him you come to love his hard nosed tactics and masculine methods of attacking situations. I couldn't put the book down after a while wanting to see what would happen next. I am left wanting to pick up the next book in the series to continue feeding my new Gallagher obsession.

I'm happy to say this first book of Bad Wolf Chronicals is not your usual Werewolf book. Its gritty, down & dirty, can't put down mayhem about werewolves. No pulsing throats of lovely ladies and ripped abs guys. Can't wait to get the next books. As a matter of, going to read everything this author has written.

Not a big fan of vampires or werewolves, I thought this would be a mystery/detective story. I guess I should have picked up on the fact that it straddles genres, but the big bad wolf did not appear until I was fully invested. . I got my money's worth from this free Nook read though, and I liked it enough to actually purchase books two and three from this trilogy. . Good read, fast-paced, and somewhat interesting, this book would have profited greatly from some better proofreading and editing. (mostly proofreading.) Many spelling errors not caught by spell check - the bell should have "pealed," not "peeled" comes to mind, she should have "peeked" over, not "peaked" over, for another. Also, there were several missing words in places, superfluous words in other places. I don't seek these errors, as some people like to do, rather my eye trips over such mistakes, making for a bumpy read. . Overall, I still give this series a "thumbs up" for an entertaining book.
