When Tobias Richard Vandevelde wakes up in a hospital with no memory of the night before, his horrified mother tells him that he was found unconscious. At Featherdale Wildlife Park. In a dingo pen. He assumes that his two best friends are somehow responsible, until the mysterious Reuben turns up, claiming that Toby has a rare and dangerous “condition.” Next thing he knows, Toby finds himself involved with a strange bunch of sickly insomniacs who seem convinced that he needs their help. It’s not until he’s kidnapped and imprisoned that he starts to believe them—and to understand what being a paranormal monster really means.

    " Started out fairly strong, got terribly bogged down in the desert. "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys" all mixed up and bumbling. Then it just ended, no real explanation. Might have helped had I known it was a sequel, couldn't quite figure out who the pasty folk were, but I did suspect after a bit. "

    " this book is addicting. i cant put it down! "

    " excellent story and narration! I love this plot, set in Australia, which is ALWAYS going in unexpected directions, and in hilarious ways. the first book, The Reformed Vampire Support Group, introduces vampires--not strong sexy ones, but sickly, weak people who have a debilitating disease. They somehow rescue a werewolf, which leads to the story and the very fitting title of this book. the werewolves and vampires interacting cause some very curious events to occur, which leads me to believe that this story isnt over... "

    " There's a few hours I'll never get back. Bummer. This started out as a maybe 3 or 4 star book, then went down to a turkey thanks to completely ridiculous bungling and a Scooby Doo like bunch of people going in and out of doors chasing vampires, no, werewolves, No, Zombies! No thanks. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate (VerbVixen) | 1/8/2014

    " Just could not get into this one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 12/18/2013

    " started reading it. got to the middle of the book and i couldn't finish it. i found it so boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roxanne Kryshmar | 11/10/2013

    " An entertaining read, with a fun take on werewolves. The writing could have been smoother, however overall I enjoyed it as light fiction. Will be checking out her book on reformed vampires as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mokamonkey | 9/8/2013

    " Ok - but I would have liked to see some original ideas for what to do about the bad guys. The author uses the same solution as last time, repeatedly. Sure the outcome is a little different, but it was still the same storyline. A bit on the long side. I got tired of the repeated snafus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbie | 9/2/2013

    " While I didn't read the first one, I don't think I missed too much that had to do with this book. Interesting story about werewolves and some of the "real world" consequences they would have to deal with, like where to spend the full moon and those who would try to take advantage of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 6/7/2013

    " Loved it! A different spin on the whole teen paranormal genre. This book had a lot of the same ambience of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer, except that it is Australian. The narrator does a fantastic job, too! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gem | 12/12/2012

    " It was ok. kinda funny. everyone keeps freaking out "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marinda | 9/7/2012

    " never finished, didn't keep my attention "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 7/16/2012

    " Eh. It starts out interesting, with that unique Australian twist. But it descends into a sort of comic book, with lots of violence and little character building. And we don't get to see a single werewolf in wolf form! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carrie | 7/12/2012

    " Ugh...that's all I'm going to say. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jenny | 6/11/2012

    " Recommended, but I really didn't like it. Mostly skimmed most of it. I thought the main character was going to be older than 13, didn't like the tone, didn't like the characters. I was kinda confused, but that's probably because I was skimming it so fast. Not my thing at all. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 2/29/2012

    " okay I can't read anymore. this book is driving mr crazy. and after reading a review that pretty much sums up my thoughts (even though this person liked RVSG) I have no worries of stopping this book. this author is officially on my not read list. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maree | 6/18/2011

    " Catherine Jinks has written some brilliant, imaginative and haunting young adult novels. This isn't one of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 6/4/2011

    " It wasn't quite as good as The Reformed Vampire Support Group, but it was still good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 5/10/2011

    " Not as humorous as the first novel (The Reformed Vampire Support Group), but still a fun Australian paranormal romp. Interesting perspectives on how the young male teenage mind works -- or doesn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 4/23/2011

    " Brings to meaning to the notion that boys are dogs. But, seriously, it was actually fairly fun when considering the fact that I was over werewolves before they began. Entertaining pubescent boy humor is such suits your fancy. "
