Publisher's Summary

If there’s no such thing as werewolves, then why are all my friends dead?  

A werewolf is preying upon the denizens of a small town. The only people who know what it is, who understand what is happening, are children. A group of third-graders isn't exactly the most credible source of information, especially when it comes to the fantastical. They grow up being ridiculed, shunned, bullied, and mistreated by their peers and the broader community.  

Years later, it returns, but this time, Thomas and his friends are prepared for it. As the body count rises and the tension mounts throughout the town, only The Freaks (as they call themselves), have come to terms with what it is. After all, they have seen it before. They have seen the blood it spilled firsthand.  

Nobody is above suspicion. Not even family members. Thomas and his friends cannot trust anyone and must suspect everyone. As children, they learned the truth. As grown werewolf hunters, they must use every bit of courage they have to face the monster. Nothing short of killing it will suffice.

Awesome werewolf novella

I loved this book. The story was fun, and the narration was good. Reminded me of the old Stephen King story Cycle of the Werewolf. I love that it takes place in the 80's in a suburban setting. But the best part about this story is the shocking violence. The twists are pretty good too, and some I just didn't see coming.
I was glad to find a novella that was so fun. I don't always have time to listen to whole novels, so this was refreshing. There just aren't enough short listens in audiobook format. But I am happy that there are two sequels, and will definitely be listening to them as soon as I have time.
