Publisher's Summary

Meet Jake. A bit on the elderly side (he turns 201 in March), but otherwise in the pink of health. The nonstop sex and exercise he’s still getting probably contribute to that, as does his diet: unusual amounts of flesh and blood (at least some from friends and relatives). Jake, of course, is a werewolf, and with the death of his colleague he has now become the only one of his kind. This depresses Jake to the point that he’s been contemplating suicide. Yet there are powerful forces who for very different reasons want - and have the power - to keep Jake alive.

Here is a powerful new version of the werewolf legend - mesmerizing and undeniably sexy, and with moments of violence so elegantly wrought they dazzle rather than repel. But perhaps its most remarkable achievement is to make the reader feel sympathy for a man who can only be described as a monster - and in doing so, remind us what it means to be human.

One of the most original, audacious, and terrifying novels in years.

From the Hardcover edition.

What the Critics Say

“A brilliantly original thriller, a love story, a witty treatise on male (and female) urges, even an existential musing on what it is to be human. Get one for yourself and one for the Twilight fan in your life.” (James Medd, The Word , UK)

“Space should be cleared for this violent, sexy thriller... The answer to Twilight that adults have been waiting for.” (Courtney Jones, Booklist)

“Yes, there are vampires here... But don’t give this book to Twilight groupies; the frank tone, dark wit, and elegant, sophisticated language will likely do them in... smart, original, and completely absorbing. Highly recommended.” (Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal)

    "High Literature Meets the Werewolf -Fantastic Tale"
    If you could sum up The Last Werewolf in three words, what would they be?

    Original, enthralling, lush.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Werewolf?

    The use of language throughout the book made the whole read memorable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the scene when he first changes and learns that killing a loved one is so exquisite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It was best enjoyed over a longer period, like savoring glasses from a bottle of fine wine. There were many passages that deserved to be listened to and reflected on. This is not a book to be rushed.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the most original takes on a horror novel I've ever read. This book would appeal to anyone who loves a well written book. The end was rather predictable, but that's OK because the ride was so enjoyable. I look forward to reading the sequel.

    Any additional comments?

    That image in your head kind of sums up this book. Rough edges, ruthless but with enough quirk and moxie to make the story incredible. The main character is hard and rough because of the lifestyle he lives, and being the last of his kind makes him not pitiful but engaging with all the stuff he knows. The people he meets and how the world is run is turned upside down making you want more and wonder will happen next. The ending makes me hope somehow there is a sequel. If you are western fan, love scotch, or just like a good old duke it out fight, this book is golden.

    "Werwolves have more fun than vampires"

    My family and I met the author on the chunnel from London to Paris. Duncan is just as interesting in person as his characters are complicated in the book. These werewolves have a ton of fun. They seem to be having a lot more fun than their vampire enemies. Their lust for life and each other is very evident. The reader does a tremendous job using many different voices and tonalities. Though no prude, I found the "sex" scenes a little to heavy. All in all, the book is very entertaining...as is the author.

    "yuck"
    What disappointed you about The Last Werewolf?

    I did not finish listening to this book. I didn't find my self connecting to the main character (or any others) after listening for a few hours. I found the very explicit sex scenes depressing and bleak, as I suppose they were meant to be. I like dark, dystopic stories, but this one lost me.

    My brief listen illustrated for me how very vital the performance is to my listening pleasure; I did not care for Mr. Sach's interpretation of this book. Because I am relatively new to audio books, I appreciated the lesson and now take care to listen to a sample prior to a purchase.

    What disappointed you about The Last Werewolf?

    No I will read others but not from this author


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Robin Sachs?

    The narrator was not the problem


    What character would you cut from The Last Werewolf?

    The werewolf


    Any additional comments?

    "What a waste"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Not sure it would be possible, what a horrible book


    What could Glen Duncan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stop writing books


    How could the performance have been better?

    no opinion


    What character would you cut from The Last Werewolf?

    no opinion


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't listen to the whole thing, it was horrible. The book couldn't keep my attention because it was all over the place, it's as though the author had several books to write and was tossing bits and pieces into this one.

    This book is like the difference between horror movies of the past and current slasher movies, the movies of the past were fun, scary and left you wondering, the slasher movie is just gore and sex and no real content. You're left wondering why you bothered and you need to give your brian a bath and somehow wash away the garabage.

    "Great concept, so-so writing."

    It just didn't flow right for me. It had some good points, but not enough. I just wanted to finish it so I could move on to something better.

    "This book is soooooo slow...."

    Please, I'm hoping this audio book picks up. Rght now the character is remembering, reflecting and basically boring me to the point of tears. I'm hoping to get through it and perhaps I'll hear some action, some moving forward instead of "rear-view" mirror explaining. The narrator is excellent and for right now, this is the only compliment I can think of for this presentation.
