WARNING May Contain Werewolves A pyramid predating all known cultures appears without warning Its discovery throws into question everything we know about the origins of mankind Inside lies incredible technology, proof of a culture far advanced than our own Something dark lurks within, eager to resume a war as old as mankind When it is unleashed it heralds the end of our species reign A plague of werewolves spreads across the world A sunspot larger than anything in recorded history begins to grow Yet both pale in comparison to the true threat, the evil the werewolves were created to fight It s like Stargate meets The Walking Dead One of the author s totally biased friends

    When a pyramid suddenly appears a team of scientists thinks that it is the discovery of their life This pyramid predates any other things every unearthed on earth and they have no idea where it came from What they don t know is that with the pyramid comes something that they think is legend But it also heralds the end of the world They need to figure things out before things are too late While looking through Audible, I came across this book and had to add it to my list I love werewolves a When a pyramid suddenly appears a team of scientists thinks that it is the discovery of their life This pyramid predates any other things every unearthed on earth and they have no idea where it came from What they don t know is that with the pyramid comes something that they think is legend But it also heralds the end of the world They need to figure things out before things are too late While looking through Audible, I came across this book and had to add it to my list I love werewolves and this sounded awesome I m so glad I got a chance to listen to this because it was so so good Character wise, there are many but all of them have a central role to play They are well written and developed but I think my favourite was Blair He is only a teacher but is drawn into the action because he is the best at his job He is the one that can translate the hieroglyphics but his life is changed because of it Plot wise, I loved everything about it I loved the lore and history behind the pyramid It was fascinating I loved finding out about the werewolves and why they were created I loved the scientific and military aspect of the story The werewolves are spreading like a plague but there is a reason why and the twist the author put on it was amazing What else can I say without spoiling something other than this book was amazing Its a complex and gripping read and one I know I ll listen to again It s well written and hard to believe that it s the authors first book He put so much into the story and it shows It s action packed and with plenty of twists to keep every one reading This is quite a long book but I flew through it I loved everything about it and highly recommend There is quite a cliffhanger ending and I normally hate cliffhangers, but the authors note at the end was a good addition and took the edge off I had to laugh a little at the ending though because the characters quip was so funny Anyway, I loved No Such Things as Werewolves and would highly recommend the audio The narrator did a great job of voicing the characters and the wolves His voice was easy to listen to and follow I m so glad I listened to it because while reading it I could imagine it as a movie playing out It was so good and I can not wait for book 2 to see what happens

    I ve been letting this one marinate for a while and I m still not sure how to rate it It kept bouncing between 2 and 5 stars The concept is excellent The writing isn t bad I kept hitting dry spots that completely lost my interest There were too many action scenes They bore me I think this was overall a noble attempt at blendinggenres than were perhaps meant to be blended It s one of the coolest ideas for a story I ve come across in a while but the execution didn t match the concept I ve been letting this one marinate for a while and I m still not sure how to rate it It kept bouncing between 2 and 5 stars The concept is excellent The writing isn t bad I kept hitting dry spots that completely lost my interest There were too many action scenes They bore me I think this was overall a noble attempt at blendinggenres than were perhaps meant to be blended It s one of the coolest ideas for a story I ve come across in a while but the execution didn t match the concept In a way this was a favorite In anotheraccurate way, I don t think I will be reading the sequel Recommended Not sure.3.5

    This was an awesome mix of adventure think Indiana Jones , Sci Fi, Fantasy, and Mythology all in one action packed story While this one did start out a bit slow for me , it did really start to pick up once Blair is in Peru at the site with the rest of the scientific team From here I found the story very engaging and the story pulls you along on the wild ride that is There are no Such Things as Werewolves There is so much I want to say about this story but so far everything I start out typi This was an awesome mix of adventure think Indiana Jones , Sci Fi, Fantasy, and Mythology all in one action packed story While this one did start out a bit slow for me , it did really start to pick up once Blair is in Peru at the site with the rest of the scientific team From here I found the story very engaging and the story pulls you along on the wild ride that is There are no Such Things as Werewolves There is so much I want to say about this story but so far everything I start out typing is just full of spoilers..I will say that in the beginning I was very happy with myself to have figured out what the ancient enemy was.only to have that turned upside down and realized about 60 70% in that I was very wrong which is a good thing, I like a book that surprises me And the cliffhanger this ends on..I mean really.how could you do that to us the listener reader that was just kinda mean I will now have to satisfy myself with the prequel The First Ark and bide my time for the audio of the next book to be released Narration Ryan Kennard Burke is a new to me narrator although his voice is so familiar I m wondering if he has narrated other books under another name and he did an amazing job telling this story A narrator can really make or break a book and in this case the narration just brings the characters to life I will definitely be looking at other books by RKB, and cannot wait to listen to the next book in this series My one complaint is the production quality not sure if my review copy was a clean edited copy or not , at first it seemed like there was some static or echoing and this continued on throughout the story I don t know anything about sound recording or production other then knowing something does not sound right, so I had my husband listen and he said what I was hearing sounded like sibilance overloading the recording or maxing out the compressor.Other than that small issue I enjoyed the story and the narration and am looking forward to .Reviewed for www.audiobookreviewer.com Audiobook was provided by Audiobook Reviewer for an honest review

    I enjoyed No Such Thing as Werewolves The premise seemed a bit silly but I m glad I gave the book a chance as once things get moving they don t let up a whole lot on the pace throughout the rest of the book There is plenty of foreshadowing of things to come throughout the work, but you still never really knew exactly what would happen when I like that main characters are regularly killed off so you never know exactly who will be safe and who in danger during the action sequences in the book I enjoyed No Such Thing as Werewolves The premise seemed a bit silly but I m glad I gave the book a chance as once things get moving they don t let up a whole lot on the pace throughout the rest of the book There is plenty of foreshadowing of things to come throughout the work, but you still never really knew exactly what would happen when I like that main characters are regularly killed off so you never know exactly who will be safe and who in danger during the action sequences in the book It s also hard to know who to root for the bad guys aren t so easily defined as all of the characters are fallible.I listened to the Audible version, and Ryan Kennard Burke does a great job with differentiating all of the voices throughout the work there are a lot of characters with a fair bit of dialogue and each was instantly recognizable

    Take notice of the warning, May Contain Werewolves No Such Thing As Werewolves is a fast paced adventure that I thoroughly enjoyed What if ancient cultures were faradvanced than we realize This book answers that question with a mixture of technology, science, mythology, and of course, werewolves It s a page turner from beginning to end

    This one read like a tv mini series I can t decide if that s a bad thing or not Maybe The story was interesting, but perhaps tried to do too much Definitely entertaining Cliffhanger ending leading into the second part of the series was mildly disappointing after a big lead up to waking the Mother Like my friend Eleven, I have no clue how to rate this one, so I m going with 3 stars.

    60% DNF I was desperate for a good WW book but I just can t push through this one It s all over the place with too many characters to keep up with Damned shame because I really like the narrator He is the only reason I lasted to 60%, before giving up Too bad I m not into Zombie books since that seems to be the only thing people what to write about in the horror genre rmde

    A mystery surrounding an ancient pyramid, werewolves, zombies, science fiction, romance, good guys and bad guys, and all rolled into a paramilitary action novel Well I tried, but there was really nothing here for me I never really got passed the cast of clich d characters as they set about solving a mystery that was probably best left unsolved.
