Publisher's Summary

Louisiana, 2065. A lot has changed in the 43rd year of the Kurian Order. Possessed of an unnatural and legendary hunger, the bloodthirsty Reapers have come to Earth to establish a New Order built on the harvesting of enslaved human souls. They rule the planet. They thrive on the scent of fear. And if it is night, as sure as darkness, they will come.

On this pitiless world, the indomitable spirit of mankind still breathes in Lieutenant David Valentine. Brought into the Wolves - an elite guerilla force sworn to win back Earth - Valentine leads his first command in the Kurian Zone. Driven by the losses of his past and the hope of a future, Valentine is in it to win. No matter how long it takes. No matter what doom awaits him beyond his wildest nightmares.

Bonus Audio: Includes an exclusive introduction by author E.E. Knight.

Join the resistance!

After a devastating invasion and the decimation of the population by alien-introduced deseases, most of Earth's population lives under the rule of the Kurians, who consider them cattle to be kept, managed and fed upon. Many humans under this system cooperate with their masters, seeking safety for themselves by betraying others. Most just try to keep their heads down and hope the 'reapers' don't come for them.

But a few are fighting back.

Way of the Wasted Credit

Who could've guessed that humanity's last hope against a world filled with Vampires could be so boring? I wish I could get my audible.com credit back for this one. I was looking for a new supernatural-related series to start on, so I gave this one a shot. I will not be getting book 2. Unremarkable characters that absolutely failed to make me care what happened to them; awkward, unrealistic dialogue from most characters; overly long and boring acres upon acres of description; forced and unnecessary exposition. I think there were more scenes of people having dinner together than there were action scenes. No, seriously. And even most of the 'action scenes' left a lot to be desired. That could be in part because of the less-than-stellar narrator, who sounds suspiciously like a narrator I've heard in a few PC video games. I joined audible.com to get audio books to help keep me interested and awake while at work. This book actually made me MORE sleepy, so had to I stop listening with about 2 hours to go in the story. That's pretty bad.

terrible writing

the author uses too many adjectives. every gaze must be "weary," etc. i found it too distracting to listen to.

Not bad at all.

After the first 15 minutes I was ready to stop listening, and select another book to listen to, because of the over dramatically delivered narration. However, I hung in there and the narrator improved from a 2 star, to a 4 star performance. This book technically is not about vampires or werewolves. It would be much more accurate to say it's about people with advanced senses (werewolves) and conquering aliens (life force sucking vampires) and it's the story of a young man who lost his parents to the aliens probably 40 years fter the aliens had invaded. This first book deals with how people have adapted to the alien invasion, and the relationships between those humans who oppose and support the aliens, and does not delve into the human interactions with, and between the aliens themselves, so only the top level basics are known about the aliens at this point.

I think that this is a good start to what could be a great series. I'm sure I'll get the next in the series sometime.

Ended well, but was very hard to get into.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story wasn't written well enough to keep my interest. The story also did not build up very well. If i could change anything it would be to make the main character cooler. More impressive.

Would you recommend Way of the Wolf to your friends? Why or why not?

No, story was way too slow.

What does Christian Rummel and E. E. Knight (Introduction) bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Christian Rummel saved this book. If it wasn't for the great narrator i would have stopped listening 30 minutes in.

Could you see Way of the Wolf being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes, if the story was changed.

Any additional comments?

The next books seem to be rated better so 'ive been debating getting the next book.

Ashamed....

I could kick myself for spending my last credit on this book. I just couldn't stay interested at all....I couldn't figure out the story line at all....I might consider listening to this book again if it were the last one left in my Library that I haven't listened to. Until then.........
