#60 The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan

Interesting twist on the old fantasy. Jacob (It's a coincidence, I'm sure) is the last of his kind. He wants to die. To the point of planning his own suicide. The problem is the 2 groups that are preventing him from doing so. One is the group to save his species. The other is the group that has been slowly killing his kind off. THAT group wants to gift his death to a veteran hunter on the night of the full moon. The concept I loved. The style of writing bored me. I believe Mr Duncan's point was to sound educated, poetic and OLD but I just found it pompous, boring and ineffectual. I guess this means I need to go back to my cheesy preternatural romances. ;)
