Cycle of the Werewolf is divided into twelve parts, the full moon of each month. A werewolf is killing people in Tarker's Mills. For a reader there isn't any mystery - you get your werewolf right away. You only don't know the man.

I guess it comes down to whether you enjoy reading monster stories or not. There isn't any deep characterization here. You either like the characters without any particular reason or you don't. I felt sorry for Marty, but only because he couldn't participate in the games with the rest. His behaviour never invites pity.

You won't be surprised that the best parts of the story are the bloody ones. My favourite is the killing that didn't happen in Tarker's Mills (if only that could have been prolonged).

Overall, an enjoyable horror story. ( )

Kind of a non read. I don't really understand its purpose. ( )

I love how this story was short and yet gave so much. I also love how they pulled a movie from this without completely destroying the original story. ( )

Forgettable, but yeah it passed the time and had pictures. ( )

this did improve as it went along but it starts out absolutely terribly. i do like the idea - the whole calendar thing, the short stories paired with art, etc - and i'm already predisposed to not like it because it's about a werewolf, but that's not my problem with it. there is no character development at all until we're about halfway through, and then only very little. this is what he excels at, and is what makes his books as good as they are. so when it's lacking, the entire book is lacking. there were moments and lines of his good writing, and i like when he makes the "weak kid" the hero, which is why this gets more than .5 star, but it just wasn't very good.

Epigraph
In the stinking darkness under the barn, he raised his shaggy head. His yellow, stupid eyes gleamed. "I hunger," he whispered. -- Henry Ellender, The Wolf
"Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November, all the rest but the Second have thirty-one, Rain and snow and jolly sun, and the moon grows fat in every one." -- Child's rime
Dedication
In memory of Davis Grubb, and all the voices of Glory.
First words
Somewhere, high above, the moon shines down, fat and full--but here, in Tarker's Mills, a January blizzard has choked the sky with snow.
