Review - There's No Such Thing As Werewolves by S.C. Mitchell

There's no such thing as Werewolves (Demons Rising, #1)There's no such thing as Werewolves by S.C. Mitchell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Kindle Edition
Published 2012

'Just because Jack turns into a hairy, wolf-like creature every full moon, doesn’t mean he’s a werewolf. Anna knows there’s no such thing as werewolves.

Anna Brown is a sorceress, and one of the leading experts on demons for the Arcanists. She knows how to help Jack shed the curse that plagues him, if he’ll let her, but the local demons are after Anna. She has a power they want to control. Does she have enough magic to save Jack and to keep the local Demon Lord at bay?

Jack Hughes trusts Anna to free him from his curse, but he doesn’t realize the danger she’s in until it’s too late. When Anna is captured by demonic creatures Jack realizes that the only way to free her is to embrace the beast he so wanted to be rid of. Can he save her under the bright, full moon or will demons from a dark dimension destroy them?

There’s no such thing as Werewolves is the opening salvo in the Demons Rising saga. It’s a love story between two special people who live in a very dangerous world.'
My Thoughts:
I managed to read this in one afternoon while my bub was asleep on me. I found it to be a really interesting and fast paced story that was definitely a page turner.

It’s not your normal werewolf novel so if that’s what you’re after if you go to read this you will be disappointed. Instead, there is a twist on what werewolves actually are which I thought was very clever and I enjoyed how the story evolved around this twist.

Things between the main characters, Anna and Jack, move extremely fast at the beginning of the story after they first meet and realise that they were good friends at school many years ago. Anna is an Arcanist which is a type of sorceress and Jack is a plumber with a huge secret which means he has to lock himself away once a month when there’s a full moon.

There’s No Such Thing As Werewolves is action packed from the moment you begin reading and it’s definitely an easy book to finish in a spare couple of hours. It’s a book that you won’t want to put down because you always want to know what’s going to happen next. There was one situation at the start that moved so fast that I actually thought I might have skipped some pages on my kindle somehow but then I realised that I hadn’t and it was just the way the story moves.

This is the first instalment in the Demons Rising saga. The second book in the series, The Forsaken Templar, was released last month and I can’t wait to see how this story continues.
