Not Your Typical Story of the Supernatural

The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group by Catherine Jinks

Dingo Boy – what could be worse than being Dingo Boy? OK, no one knows Toby is that boy, except for him, his mother, and his two best friends. But still . . .

Being found unconscious in a dingo pen in the early morning with no memory of how he got there is just the beginning of Toby Vandevelde’s troubles. Now his mom suspects him of doing drugs and he has to undergo a series of medical tests to see if he has epilepsy. Then there’s the crazy priest and his friend who insist that Toby is a werewolf, as if werewolves really existed. Just as Toby is beginning to come to terms with his “condition,” he’s kidnapped and the only ones who can save him are the crazy priest and his equally weird group of friends.

The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group by Catherine Jinks is a follow up to her book, The Reformed Vampire Support Group. Fans of the earlier book will recognize Father Alvarez, Reuben and the other members of the support group as well as the site of Toby’s captivity. But readers new to the series will have no trouble following and enjoying this improbable tale where vampires are actually weak and sickly and being a werewolf is a genetic disorder. If you’re looking for a fresh approach to the supernatural, check out this fun story where the true monsters are humans.
