Bullies, jocks, and geeks. A teacher. The woods. An unspeakable horror.
A fresh take on an old theme where nothing is what it seems.
What is out there? Can it really be werewolves?

Synopsis

“KEPT ME ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT. GETS YOUR PULSE POUNDING.”
Author and award winning investigative journalist, Victor Malarek

Using a fun, explosive style, full of new slang and fresh dialogue, WHEREWOLVES is the story of a group of high school seniors, most “military brats”, who are headed for an army-type survival weekend.

"5 stars. It reminded me a bit of Lord of the Flies versus Silver Bullet but only way cooler."

"Chillingly terrifying."

The underdogs, Jeffrey and Doris, do not want to go as they fear for their safety among the disdain and cruelty of the popular students. Sergeant Tim O’Sullivan, their teacher, as well as their dysfunctional parents pressure them into going, but it is an unforgivable act by their peers that propels the pair to go. Likewise, Elie, a student resented because of his Arab roots, is even more determined to prove himself this weekend. In the background, a news report cautions of a wanted couple with alleged super-human strength supposedly brought on by a new drug on the streets.

In the woods, the students hike, hunt, camp, and soon act in unity as the forest brings them closer together. But does it? O’Sullivan leaves them alone for the night. The students bond, chant, tell campfire tales, and quickly lose their fears and inhibitions. HOO-AH! Though sexual tensions are high, it soon turns to violence and everything quickly turns sour.

When the kids start disappearing one after the other, the remaining begin to unwittingly “act like the natives” carving spears, ready to face whatever is out there. What has gotten into them?

Amid blood-curdling growls and gruesome deaths, the story’s underlying layers are revealed. We see how misconceptions, prejudice, greed, fear, and hatred bring out the worst and best in us.

What is out there? Can it really be werewolves?

"This is one horror novel that will have you thinking long after you've finished reading."

“SPARKLING DIALOGUE…THE WRITING IS SENSATIONAL.”
Emmy and Peabody Award winning writer, William Mastrosimone
