In their hometown in Ireland, thirteen-year-old Colton and his best friend Jade spend their free time investigating a local urban legend about an old abandoned house which seems to be genuinely haunted. At the same time, Colton has developed a crush on American foreign exchange student, Dylan, who is visiting his aunt. Turns out, Dylan isn’t your average American kid–he’s a werewolf. When Dylan’s aunt disappears through a portal inside the house Colton and Jade have been investigating, the threeof them set out to save her from the magical realm on the other side of the doorway.
Review – Many of you know that I love to read supernatural books so I wasn’t going to pass up a good YA werewolf tale. The Werewolf on Lowre Few Lane was a fast paced book and kept me hooked. The story is told from Colton’s POV and I enjoyed watching him grow as a character. Dylan, Jade, and Thomas were all great characters that played important parts in the story.
I really hope there are more books in this series, I enjoyed the magic and the world the author built. This book is perfect for my young teenage daughter!
“I have loved haunted houses for as long as I can remember,” recounts Bentley-Tales. “When I was kid I was hooked on the Scooby crew who were always going into haunted castles, houses, amusement parks, museums. Heck, you name it, it was haunted!” These sweet-scary childhood memories fueled Bentley-Tales’ storytelling in this book, his first YA horror story. And certainly, developing the story through the eyes of a young gay boy allowed the author to offer a special, inclusive point of view. And while masterfully creating tension and fear through the dark fantasy conflict, the navigation of young love is another great strength Bentley-Tales displays. “There’s a part in the story where Erin wants to make Colton jealous by telling him how much attention Dylan is giving her. I get a good chuckle when I re-read it, as it’s such a typical young love triangle!”
