Through The Lens: Wereworld – Rise of The Wolf by Curtis Jobling

Welcome to our weekly meme, Through The Lens! We’re combining a love of books with photography in order to visually display what we read and love.

How It Works

Each Thursday BA will be sharing a photograph taken of a book, such as a current read, recommendation, or a favourite, with an object or in a setting the reader feels represents an element in the story. Then we’ll share a short blurb about why we chose it.

You Can Join In Too

If you want to participate you can. You don’t have to be an expert photographer, the point of this meme is to be creative and share! Take your book, including eBooks, and display those covers with something that shows what you took away from the story. You’re welcome to post another day, we just like alliteration here at BA, and there is no theme unless you want to have one.

We do ask, if you wish to join in, that you grab the banner, link back to us, and share your link too so everyone can see your photos! Continue reading

Review: Rise of The Wolf by Curtis Jobling

When the air is clear, sixteen-year-old Drew Ferran can pick up the scent of a predator. When the moon breaks the clouds, a terrifying fever grips him.

And when a vicious beast invades his home, his flesh tears, his fingers become claws and Drew transforms . . .

Can Drew battle the werecreatures determined to destroy him- and master the animal within?


Lycanthropy, lack of wizards, a touch of necromancy (yes, zombies!), and Therianthropism (think of the Ancient Egyptian Deities and this is a subject that fascinates me, especially Clinical Lycanthropy), what more could you want in a fantasy? Apparently wanting more isn’t for me because this is my type of fantasy. No relying on fantastical fantasy wizards, elves, dwarves, magical weapons to decide fates, rings to rule them all, or horrible fantasy clichés, this is one of those fantasies I enjoy reading and will go on that part of my shelf where I put what I deem the pleasant and enjoyable fantasy. The fantasy I will remember because it’s not the same as the usual recycled and tired old story. Continue reading
