Wheel Wolf (Werewolf Horror) by January Valentine

Jack Bailey is just a few weeks away from beginning his dream career as Forest Ranger in the upstate New York town of Angel's Bend. Jenny Rudea, veterinarian in training, is madly in love with Jack, and the animals she cares for.

On the way home from her house one night, Jack takes an unanticipated detour to Hosner Lake. While there, he encounters something that raises the hair on the back of his neck. What is out there, on the other side of the lake? Is it a shadow, a hunter, a wolf? Without a weapon or a flashlight, he is not about to stick around to find out.

He hops on his bike and heads for the main road where something leaps onto his back, causing the accident that steals his mobility, threatens his sanity. As if this isn't bad enough, when he wakes up in the hospital, paralyzed from the waist down, he has no idea what occurred on the lonely road, but is now a prime suspect in a murder investigation because of what was found almost pinned to his body: a naked girl whose throat has been slit.

In his comatose state, Jack hears detectives interview Jenny at his bedside. He eventually regains consciousness and is transferred to a rehab where he hopes to recover the use of his legs. The police are searching for a serial killer, mutilated bodies have been piling up across the country, as well as in Angel's Bend. While Jack struggles with his physical injuries, he must also defend his innocence.

Jack manages to slip in and out of the window of his room mysteriously, at will, even though he's in a wheelchair. The only one who notices his disappearing acts is his physical therapist, Rachel Huntress, who is almost as weird as the predicament Jack has found himself in; Jack's extraordinary abilities and hairy appearance don't seem to faze her at all.

There are tense scenes which include violence and raw emotion in this werewolf whodunit. Who is the murderous werewolf? Jack? Or could it be his high school rival, Detective Don Delgado. It's anyone's guess. Along with mangled corpses, there are several possible suspects. This killer is not part of a pack. He's a ruthless rogue.

Wheel Wolf is a stunningly intense chiller, with gripping internalization from Jack's and Jenny's points of view. Packed with romance, suspense, twists and turns, this bestselling, unpredictable psychological thriller will have you on the edge of your seat from page one until the bittersweet conclusion.

At first I was not sure if I would enjoy this story. Then I was caught up in the hunt for a serial killer. Jack is a good man who experiences some very bad things but accepts the unknown as he experiences it. I know the description is "horror", but I found it very enjoyable and not at all scary. The end of the story was a bit happy/sad for me and I thought it wrapped up the story nicely. I received this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

I'm trying to venture out from my normal reads, and when I read something this great, I wonder what took me so long. This is a well written horror story. Jack and Jenny take you on an action packed, emotionally charged, scary as hell rollercoaster ride. The love that they have for one another is something else. Im glad Jenny toughed it out and stayed by Jack's side. Whatever you do, don't read this at bedtime.

Definitely not a fairy tale! I have been a horror fan since I was six and have tried to read or see just about every movie and book that has been written.  As a result, I wasn't sure what this book would have to offer.   I am pleased to say that it was suspenseful and kept my attention. .  It was nice not to be able to predict every piece of the  plot as I read through the story. The best part is, the story doesn't typically follow all the good balancing  out the evil, and I had a devastating moment or two. I think you will enjoy this book.

Wonderful read!! Thank you very much! I love Jack and Jenny's love. This book had the right amount of scare, love, and OMG to it. I recommend it to everyone not just folks that want a scary read. I do not want to give much away but am so glad Jenny stuck by Jack. I am looking forward to reading more by January Valentine!!! A new fan and looks like a fan for life. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work!!!!

Let's face it, if you read paranormal, you are reading a form of horror. I never considered myself a horror fan or connected the 2 Genre together but Werewolves and Vampires are the stuff of both. Jack is a normal guy, normal relationship, job and life until he is attacked. By what? Even he isn't sure but there is a dead young woman and a paralyzed Jack left behind. Lucky for Jack he has Jenny who loves him no matter what. I am not one to share spoilers, can't stand that, I want to read the book. As a result, my reviews are usually short. Nothing different here. I will say that Jack has friends he didn't know he had and learns to believe in things that "don't exist". I like to think that if you aren't sure you like the horror genre, Wheel Wolf is a great starting point. Ms. Valentine does an extremely good job at drawing you into Jack and not running you off with trivial facts. Book 2, where are you?

From the moment I began reading "Wheel Wolf" I was hooked. It had me on the edge of my seat waiting to find what would happen next. Being a fan of the author's other books, I knew that I was in for a treat, and I was not disappointed. As in her other books, she brings the characters to life and places you in the scene which is always great in a thriller like this one. I will recommend it to my friends and family. Another amazing read!!

I loved this book so much. I feel in love from the start and stayed in love all of the way to the end. Jenny and Jack's story is one of the best that I have ever read. I will reread this book more than once, I am sure I missed something and  want to make sure that I get every detail. Jenny's love was able to save Jack in more than one way. Even when he would have loved to have been dead himself after his parents death Jenny was able to save him from himself. I hope that everyone will read this book so that they can see just how wonderful of a writer January Valentine is. I would like to give a huge Thank You to January Valentine for writing such an amazing book. I haven't felt so much from a book in a long  time. I have been reading some of January's other books and they are also just as wonderful. Everyone go and buy this one and see what it is I am talking about.

Wheel Wolf by January Valentine isn't the paranormal novel we've all become accustomed to. From the very beginning, this book sends a chill down your spin and keeps you guessing what's going to happen next. When a man in his early 20s has a motorcycle accident, he's soon questioned for the murder of a young girl. The only problem is he never saw the young girl - though he felt her attack him from behind. Not able to tell anyone the truth for fear of sounding crazy, he keeps the details to himself, haunted by what he saw in the woods just moments before his accident. If you want to read a novel that will make you question what's lurking in the woods, Wheel Wolf is an excellent read.
