A little too light on the werewolf action and far too reliant on the dreamscape, the novel plays out like a Val Lewton take on the Wolf Man story. The mythology created to explain the werewolf curse is a good one that would play well onscreen. The characterization of Lon Chaney Jr.'s Talbot is pretty accurate and is one of the strengths of the novel. The setup of the Knights echoes the Watchers from the Highlander tv series such that one can almost imagine the Wolf Man tv series from this premise. The action picks up for the last act, but I would have liked it to somehow tie in with the subsequent Wolf Man appearance onscreen (Frankenstein Vs the Wolf Man). ( )

I read this book immediately following the novelization of the original movie, something I feel both helped and hurt my enjoyment of the book. The characterization of the main character was not as good as in the novelization, but overall felt true. Unfortunately the story just basically continues in a completely different direction instead of dealing with any of the plot from the original movie. Only the main character appears here, and none of the plot deals with anything from the original movie for the most part. I found the story fun, and it was nice to get the sequel novel at all, but I feel it was a missed opportunity for the writer to explore further the themes and story presented in the original. While he certainly did the work to tie it in to the movie with various references, none of those references mattered to the plot; he could just as easily taken out the main character and substituted in any random werewolf character. I would recommend the book if you were a fan of the movie or werewolf novels, but expect a very short light read with little thinking involved. ( )
