Review: THE WEREWOLF WHISPERER by Camilla Ochlan and Bonita Gutierrez

Lucy Lowell, The Werewolf Whisperer, and her partner Xochitl Magaña are thrown into chaos when the Kyon Virus turns a disturbing number of Angelenos into Werewolf-like creatures. As the outbreak expands to epidemic proportions, Lucy’s uncanny ability to control the creatures makes her “the silver lining in our werewolf apocalypse.”

Battling their own personal demons born of family history and bad choices, the women join together in the pursuit of helping those afflicted. But all is not as it seems. Not for Lucy. Not for Xochitl. And not for a society just coming to grips with the new world order.

Review: In the beginning, it seemed that they were chasing a werewolf. But then a whole swarm of questions followed. Were Lucy and Xochitl working to preserve the werewolves? Were they like a crime-fighting duo, like Batman and Robin? Obviously the two had a long history according to the back-lash dialogue and flaccid humor. But who was the werewolf whisperer? And what was a werewolf whisperer? Was it like a ghost whisperer, someone who can communicate with the dead?

The title and a story line concerning the evolution of werewolves were captivating. I guess I really didn’t understand the concept of the werewolf whisperer. The plot was a tad puzzling and complex. The writing was okay, but the story didn’t quite hold my interest.

I suppose this would be a good story for those who like fantasy and science—oh, and dogs, too!
