Glen Duncan – By Blood We Live -on the shelf this week!
Glen Duncan writes books with bite. We learned this in his first-of-three novel, The Last Werewolf, with a charming tourguide named Jake, who also grows fur and kills things- just once a month, though. A great guy in every other respect. So Glen did what any respectable novelist would do with a popular and engaging main character – he killed Jake off. So does that mean there aren’t any more werewolves? Not to worry, Jake had a girlfriend. Well, a couple. (I said he was charming.) The second book, Tallula Rising, followed one of these newly fanged and surprisingly pregnant women, and fortunately Tallula was every bit as fierce and interesting as Jake. And then of course there were vampires. (They are like peanut butter and chocolate.)
