There aren’t many new werewolf books hitting stores lately, so when I got an email telling me about a recently released werewolf novel, Autumn Moon by Slade Grayson, I had to share it with all the werewolf lovers here.
“Tanneheuk, Montana appears to be an idyllic small town. There’s no crime, no poverty, and no racism. The town is overseen by a small group known as “the elders,” a tribe of people who have watched over Tanneheuk for hundreds of years. The elders are shapeshifters – werewolves – and they protect the townspeople from the corrupting influence of outsiders. In return for their protection, they only require one thing: Every year, on the first day of Autumn, they want to hunt a human. Enter a young minister with a checkered past. To him, the shapeshifters are nothing more than demons. He convinces the town that the hunt is a sin against God, and that they should stand up to the elders. Throw in a family of con artists hiding out in Tanneheuk, a female pot-smoking deputy, an unlikely romance, too many guns…and it may be Judgment Day for Tanneheuk.”
Autumn Moon is definitely not your average werewolf book, that’s for sure, but does it’s rather unique storyline make it worth a shot? What do you think, do you see yourself picking up a copy of this one? Personally, I am on the fence. It sounds interesting enough, but it looks like it may have a big dose of religion and such in it and that’s not really my thing. I think I may just pass on this one.
