[Book Review] WOUNDED by Stephen Cole


Wendi Glenn reviews WOUNDED by Stephen Cole (Razorbill, 2003)

While on a family vacation, Tom Anderson has a run in with a bear and awakens to find himself being taken care of by Marcie Folan. Tom starts to feel that something is not right and soon realizes that the Folans are werewolves. They are trying to turn Tom into a mate for their daughter Kate, who will only fully become a werewolf if she mates with another werewolf. Kate, however, resists her parents' wishes because she doesn’t want to become a werewolf. Kate’s brother Wesley and Tom have a fight which leaves Wesley dead, so Kate and Tom flee the area. They travel to New Orleans to meet with a witch doctor who can turn them into humans again. Time is of the essence since a network of werewolves is trying to tracking down the pair to kill Tom. This book is fast-paced and a quick read with lots of plot twists. If you like it, then try books in the Buffy, The Vampire Slayer series as well as those by authors such as R. L. Stine, Annette Curtis Klause, and Ellen Schreiber.
