Then mysterious Reuben shows up, claiming Tobias has a rare and dangerous 'condition'. He doesn't believe Reuben and a group of strange people who say they only want to help. It isn't until Tobias is kidnapped that he starts to believe that there might be something wrong with him. But is it now too late?
This story has an intriguing premise. I like the idea of a group of people that try to help werewolves. Also the Australian Outback was a freshing backdrop. Tobias did sound like an average thirteen-year-old boy especially with some of the pranks he tries at the beginning of the story with his friends.
The pacing at times was a little slow but picks up after Tobias is kidnapped. Then the story goes through some fast-paced action where Tobias finds out his so-called helpers aren't all they seem to be. He's also pretty smart on ways to try to get out of his prison.
I do admit I skimmed through places where the dialogue seemed to drag on. I also felt there were times the plot drifted and I got confused on what exactly was happening.
This is not the typical werewolf tale. But if you are looking for a different twist on the usual paranormal story and one that has some quirky characters, do try this one. I also feel this book will appeal to boys who can relate with Tobias and some of the prank scenes. For this reason I give this book a 2 and a half star rating.
