George and Lou used to be thugs for hire. Now they're living in a shack in Costa Rica, hiding from the crime lord who wants them dead. Their last job, to deliver him a werewolf in a cage, went...badly.
But they can't hide out forever, and when they're finally captured, it seems as if George and Lou's ultimate fate will involve being doused in gasoline and set aflame. Instead, they're given a second chance. There's another werewolf out there. This time, it's Ally, a 14-year-old girl.
Kidnapping a teenaged girl is a major conflict with George and Lou's moral code, but they also aren't fans of being brutally executed, so they agree to the job. After all, the crime lord doesn't want to kill Ally - he just wants her to bite him. They'll snatch her, deliver her as promised, and then do everything they can to return her home safely. She doesn't even know she's a werewolf; it's not as if she'll create any complications by transforming.
Of course, this is George and Lou, so there are many, many complications.
The worst of which is that they've now enraged three other extremely nasty werewolves....

First of all, there is a lot of gore, so this book isn’t for everyone. Compared to the first one, I think I like this one even better. I didn’t find as much humor in it, but I thought the characters were better.
Many horror novels use gore to shock their readers and usually include common phobias like a monster in the dark or creepy crawlies. These have their place but they’re a dime a dozen. The best horror novels are those that show the true dark depths of the twisted human mind. The very best villains have a good side and the very best heroes have a demon whispering into their ear.
There is no creature on Earth that can be sicker than a human, and a writer who can capture that sickness is a true artist. Jeff Strand has definitely done this. The werewolf angle does not detract from this; wolves don’t hunt humans down. It is the human mind with the wolf claws, teeth, and strength that makes this so good.
Scott Thomas once again did an excellent job bringing it to life. He was able to perfectly portray the emotion, from abject terror to psychotic exuberance. The pacing and pronunciation was spot on, the female characters were good, and I never had to wonder who was talking.
This is one of my favorite horror novels with a great balance of action, description, and dialogue. I recommend it to all horror-lovers.
I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
lately when I listen to a book I have been watching the time trickle by not really interested in the book. that all changed with this series. I have finished both book 1 and 2 in under a week with 3 small kids at home. that is no easy feat. I couldn't wait to listen to this. it actually made me excited to do the dishes to get some alone time to listen with my headphones lol
okay now let's talk about the actual book.
I am devastated by this....and if you have read this you know exactly what part I am talking about..... i loved the progression of these two books and the humor and constant surprises. I have fallen in love with these 2 mobsters :) Jeff strand is a genius and so is Scott Thomas for the narration. because of the excellent book I will be checking out more books from Jeff strand. I can't wait to dive in! and the same goes for Scott thomas, any book he narrates will be great!!! I have found my favorite male narrator! Finally!
the ending is left with a few unexplained questions and is left open for book 3.... please tell me there will be a book 3. I need more!!!!
This is not a literary work of art or terribly thought provoking. It IS however, an entertaining ride filled with witty dialog. The narrator did a phenomenal job with the different character's voices and gave them each their own personality. There was one particular character who was especially whiny and the narrator did such a good job portraying him, I could visualize myself slapping him upside the head!
Looks to be a series and can't wait for the next. Jeff Strand is an amazing author.Love the narrator as well.This was extremely enjoyable, but not for everyone considering the very dark and twisted scenes in the book. The was laugh out loud funny at times. Just a fun and easy book to read. Hurry up with a 3rd book please.

You just gotta love George and Lou. I didn't think that Jeff Strand could outdo Wolf Hunt 1, it was such a great story, but he showed me wrong. Congrats. This was a delight. Eugene was a great character too, a messed up one for sure but he added a lot to my enjoyment. I must point out that I am quite saddened by the turn of events that will force George to find another partner if ever there is a Wolf Hunt 3. But I'm convinced that Mr. Strand can pull it off. If I could have myself a third arm sewn on I'd give you a three thumbs up, great job.

Wolf Hunt 2 is way better than the first book. The first Wolf Hunt is fantastic and a lot of fun, but in this sequel, George and Lou steal the show! If you read the first book, then you know George and Lou are uproarious and simply wonderful. There are more werewolves in Wolf Hunt 2 along with so many great lines. I had a lot of laughs listening to this book! Scott Thomas’ narration is absolutely outstanding. I will probably never read the physical copies of these books because his performance brings everything to life, and he captures the essence of George and Lou so effortlessly.
Please tell me there will be a third book! There has to be!
Once again, Scott Thomas delivers another wonderful narration of Jeff Strand's book, "Wolf Hunt 2." The voices are consistent, and although one part of the book was sad, the rest was very entertaining and this listener was not left bored. The comedy strewn here and there is priceless. This was another great production. Bravo, Scott Thomas!
Guess who's back?! George and Lou and the hairy, crunchy, gory, funny adventures we loved in the first WOLF HUNT book! Another not-for-young-adults fun ride from Jeff Strand. Plus one of the best narrators!
I forgot to mention, at the risk of being spoilery: This book is much harrier than the first one.
I found many quick, loud guffaws coming out of my mouth at work as I listened to this sequel. It is every bit as fun as the first one, but I recommend breaking it up like a funny TV show. Maybe an hour at a time/ hour a day. It'll last you longer, and it will keep the jokes fresher. Otherwise the humor is a little overwhelming (there seemed to be a lot more humor in this compared the first one).
I may have eye-rolled a lot doing it, haha, but I still had a great time with this book. I recommend it to Strand fans and horror-humor fans.

Having loved book 1, I couldn't wait to dive back into this world. And boy was I in for a rip roaring, heart breaking and utterly compelling ride!!
George and Lou are back!! When they are found and forced to take another job, they are naturally reluctant after the event of the last time! It's worse this time though, their target is a teenager who is a suspected werewolf. Even without the fact that another werewolf is involved, the boys don't like the fact that they have to abduct a girl. But, it's that or being murdered! What follows, of course, is another fast and furious, often times hilarious, often times heart breaking, adventure that you don't want to miss!
Once again, Jeff Hunt manages to create a darkly delicious read and one I devoured!! George and Lou are as amazing as last time, though this edition really pushes them both. It's darker than book 1, but I think it needed to be. The boys know more now than they did in book 1 so a lot of the levity is gone, yet there are still plenty of laugh out loud moments involving them. Then when they are introduced to a memorable character, the laughs come a little more often.
Also, damn Jeff Hunt!!! He ripped my heart out at a certain point. I was listening to it and was like NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! How could you!!!!!!! My poor heart couldn't take it. If you've read it, you know what part I'm on about, if not then go read these books NOW!!
Anyway, in all, this was an amazing sequel and I pray we haven't seen the last of these characters!! I went and bought some of this authors other work to see how they are, because if this series is anything to judge by, then I know I'll love the others. Highly recommend.
Again, Scott Thomas was amazing! He really brings each character to life. Every single character had their own tone and "personality" and it was extremely easy to follow who was talking at any one given time.
*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*
After the first book crushed me so much because of the boring, mouthy wolf, I am so excited with this one. It turned out perfectly! Thanks for a great read! When do I get to read the third?
