Review: Wereling by Steve Feasey

Wereling by Steve Feasey
Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 288 pages
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends (April 27, 2010)
Rating: 3.5/5

Last night 14 year old Trey Laporte went to bed a ward of the state, but at least normal, and today he wakes up to his room in shambles, a mysteriously rich Uncle Lucien he had never heard of, and finds out he is a werewolf!

My thoughts: It took me about seventy pages before I really could get into this one. Mainly those first seventy or so pages introduces you to the characters and lays the ground work for what has happened which in itself was fine but what bugged me was being that far into the book and Lucien more or less was stalling Trey and me as to what his situation was and what he had to do with it.

Trey would ask a question and Lucien always had something else to do or some reason not to sit down and explain everything to him. I just wanted to reach in and smack Lucien a few times and have him to get on with it already!

Once you make it past all that the story actually starts getting some action and takes off! The ending had a nice cliff hanger and left me yearning for the next book of the series.

Thank you for the review!!! It is always nice to be warned ahead of time about the slow start because I know many who have given up on a book.... when in actuality it may very well be a GREAT book!!=)
