Publisher's Summary

Werewolves are real.

And they make excellent pets.

Owning one of the legendary creatures is the latest fad. The WereHouse insists their werepets are loyal, docile, and 100% safe, but what happens when these gentle giants turn on their masters?

While on a routine EMS call, paramedic Christine Alt is attacked by a rogue werepet. She escapes with her life, but the encounter leaves her with more than just scars. As her body begins to change, she discovers the WereHouse is hiding a terrible secret, and they will stop at nothing to keep her from exposing them.

Tamed is a werewolf tale with a twist from the author of the The Light of Epertase trilogy.

Unique

A really unique story where someone thinks they can take warewolves to be living obedient pets. That's where the fun begins in this blood filled, well written story. a must for the new year.

The narrator's reading was so good he could put child down your back. I totally enjoyed listening to him read.

I was provided a free copy of this audible. This is my honest opinion.

Nice twist to the Werewolf story

Not a bad twist. Enjoyed it. Not scary, but enjoyable. Makes you want to donate to PETA afterwards!

Not the direction I thought he went.

DNR

I was hoping for something a little different than what I listened to in this story. Werewolves are always seen as scary and being killers. And that was pretty much what the author went with here. ☹ Yes, there were some who were pets but it seemed to be such a small part of the story, even though the blurb made it sound like it would have been a bigger/main focus. Yes, the wergs were being sold as pets, but the majority of the story was catching, “training,” and killing them.

The narrator was okay. There were a lot of times when his voice would raise for the character’s dialogue, which I didn’t understand. I kept thinking of a sportscaster and, in the end, that was one of the reasons I had a hard time listening to the story.

Had the dialogue not been so robotic/unnatural sounding, maybe the narrator would have sounded better. Having a character say they felt “zeal...”? Yeah, no. Also, don’t be scared of contractions!!

Questions/Comments:

That first character thought getting his son a werewolf was a good idea... after seeing several of them fight to the death. Sure. Just the whole idea of people watching animals fight to the death for entertainment is disgusting. Again, I wish the author would have taken the story in a different/more unique direction. The fact he goes along with the stereotype that pitbulls are aggressive and killers was overkill, and making it sound like all of them were? No.... Any dog can if provoked, and I’d say a good majority of the time it’s because of a human treating them poorly.

I assume the author was trying to be funny/add in a joke and that was why the one bad guy asked why the other homeless man had called Steven “Nevitts”? I didn’t really get that.

Why did the guard shoot the werewolf after it bit Steven if they can’t easily heal?

How could werewolves be considered the most dangerous animal in the world and those in higher positions allow them to be sold as pets? Yes, creatures who were bigger, taller than their carers. Sorry, but with the computer chip they used to keep them tame, I wish they would have explained that more. How did it work exactly, especially when it was implanted in the neck?

The Werehouse was small but would grow pending government approval. So how did people already have them as pets? The idea that they want to become more popular, sell more as pets, just didn’t work with what was going on in the story. I mean, they were hiding the fact the werewolves were dangerous, wild creatures. Yet there were no other people, companies, scientists, the government who wanted to study them?

Aidan had watched horror movies with werewolves yet he and his father were both surprised when Henderson (or one of his flunkies) told them “Werg” (however it’s spelled) came about because… Insert drumroll here… they were werewolves. This was said after Aidan’s father stated they looked like werewolves.

Why after Rufus cried out in the bathroom did Aiden’s mom tell him to kick in the door? Like she doesn’t know what his father is doing in the bathroom, but that was the first thing that came to mind? How had his father found out about the chip in Rufus’ neck? (This was about where I stopped because the story was going down a rabbit hole that just didn’t work for me.)

Aiden thought Rufus turned against his parents, so he “ran to his room like a coward” BUT came back with a bat while wondering if Rufus had turned against him, too. Even though he’d only growled. I get he’d never done that before, but still. It’s a wild animal. Either way, Aiden was willing to die to find out. Seriously?

He came back out with a weapon, so why did the author write it like that? Also, how long did it take him to get the bat when his parents were already dead, or so it seemed, downstairs with an injured Rufus? It read like seconds but Aiden arrived and everything was finished. Oh, and the idea of Henderson taking Aiden with him, the boy who no longer cared about the world anymore because his parents were dead, YET went with the person who was responsible. That had to have been the craziest what-the-hell-am-I-reading scene I’ve ever encountered. In a bad way of course.

I didn’t understand how Aiden never thought to question Henderson. His parents were killed by a creature Henderson sold. Henderson takes him before the police arrive. Did he ever ask what happened to his parents’ bodies? Henderson wants him to keep an eye on the mayor. That last one would have had anyone who wasn’t a bad person (kill, torture humans) wondering what Henderson would have done had the mayor partook in illegal activities. Just the fact Henderson raised him and he had no idea how the werewolves were treated made no sense to me.

Tamed

Overall I really liked this book. It was different. It had horrific moments, but I am not sure I would call it a horror novel. Thriller, certainly. Maybe I am just too used to reading heavier material. There were brilliant parts of this book. There were also sections where I just shook my head. This was an audiobook and maybe it was the narration, but some of this was just ridiculous and pretty predictable. The very last few lines almost ruined the ending for me.

A Great Listen

A very intriguing tale of human cruelty. Personal profit becomes more important than human rights, if Werewolves count as humans, in this story of werewolves as household pets. One man has a dream and the technology to turn monsters into well trained pets. Until something goes wrong and victims start to change. The hunt is on, but who is the prey. It will keep you listening much longer then you intended. It's well worth the time. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review.

Unique twist!

In the unbelievable future, werewolves have been domesticated and become pets. Aidan Taliq had his first experience with werewolves when he was a young boy. His father purchased a werepet for him at age ten or so. For several years, his friendship with his werepet Rufus was wonderful, until something went terribly wrong. From that day forward Aidan became a Hunter. Where the werewolves come from is a closely guarded secret by Bernard Henderson, owner of a business called the WereHouse. It is a gladiator-style arena where werewolves fight to the death for the citizen’s entertainment. Steven aka Nevets, a homeless veteran, and Christine Alt an EMT were exposed to werewolf blood, giving them the ability to shift. This ability will lead to exposing the secret Henderson has held for so long. While this werewolf story is not hair-raising, it is interesting and does provide a unique twist to the genre. Three.point.five I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

No to the narrator

I enjoyed the story but no to the narrator. I would not want a Werepet. I would not want to be the same state as one of those things.
