Talulla Demetriou. is grieving for her werewolf lover, Jake, whose violent death has left her alone with her own sublime monstrousness. On the run, pursued by the hunters of WOCOP (World Organization for the Control of Occult Phenomena), she must find a place to give birth to Jake’s child in secret.

The birth, under a full moon at a remote Alaska lodge, leaves Talulla ravaged, but with her infant son in her arms she believes the worst is over, until the windows crash in, and she discovers the worst has only just begun.

What follows throws Talulla into a race against time to save both herself and her child as she faces down the new, psychotic leader of WOCOP, a cabal of blood-drinking religious fanatics, and (rumor has it) the oldest living vampire.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 José Paulo | 2/11/2014

    " Guess the man has to eat. A good read, but a poor sequel to his wonderful "The Last Werewolf". But the man is like Stephen King, even when he is not at his best, one can find literary gems here and there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 2/7/2014

    " I really enjoyed this sequel! Can't wait for the next one! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah Renaye | 2/2/2014

    " Started reading it, but was turned off by the constant use of the phrase, "dirty, filthy, bad girl." Thought it was a bit degrading and seemed to not be relevant to what was actually going on in the story. Between that and the slow draw into the story, I decided to read something else instead. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 1/29/2014

    " actually, a 3 1/2 for this one "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josephine | 1/21/2014

    " Not sure I really understood the ending, but good plot (though quite a lot of werewolfy gore!) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tuesday's Child | 1/21/2014

    " Wow, what a stunning read.It is beautifully gruesome!Must be my favourite read of the year so far.Cannot wait for the next book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 1/20/2014

    " ...even better than the first book (The Last Werewolf) Fantastic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 1/14/2014

    " Didn't think a sequel could be as good as the original, but man was I wrong! What a gift ... so enjoyed the whole thing I couldn't put it down. And love, love, love Ms. Talulla and her twins. Third in the series (hope, hope) should be just as good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 12/10/2013

    " A good book that kept me turning pages. Didn't quite have the same energy or thematic loneliness that made its predecessor so great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 11/24/2013

    " Not quite as good as The Last Werewolf, but highly entertaining nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 10/15/2013

    " This is the sequel to The Last Werewolf, which I gave only two stars. Tallula Rising had a more likable protagonist and I enjoyed Glen Duncan's style of writing, though at times the graphic descriptions of violence and torture were off-putting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaunna | 10/15/2013

    " Loved it! I love this series and how raw and gritty it is. Talulla is a strong female character, discovering how much she can truly handle. So glad there is a werewolf series well written and worth reading. Finally! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen Klug | 9/19/2013

    " Much better than the first one. Much MUCH better than the first one. I would go so far as to say I enjoyed this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 9/17/2013

    " I didn't even realize there were going to be more books! I was happily surprised when I stumbled across volume 2. It wasn't quite as good as the first one, but I still couldn't put it down and now I anxiously await the third volume. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen Holland Shear | 7/9/2013

    " It's so funny to me, but just like the first book - The Last Werewolf - I found the language a bit crass and vulgar for my taste, yet I couldn't put the book down. It's a deliciously fantastic book! A must read for anyone remotely interested in this genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Albertine Feurer-Young | 11/6/2012

    " Entertaining, but not nearly as good as The Last Werewolf. No depth, no intellectual philosophical quandaries, no great sex. Fast moving and easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matt Piechocinski | 10/27/2012

    " As much as I found myself wanting a sequel to the Last Werewolf ... this wasn't what I was envisioning. The story itself is okay, but I found it frustratingly cluttered sometimes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicky | 8/3/2012

    " it's a good read but just doesn't engage the way "the last werewolf" did. the plot was too convoluted. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jimnden | 7/2/2012

    " Great twist on the ususal vampire/supernatural catagory , very sexy and quick paced . "
