Talulla Rising plunges the magnificent co-protagonist of The Last Werewolf into an adrenaline-charged solo quest, a race against time torecover her lost child. Along the way Talulla crosses paths with a psychotic new WOCOP leader, an unlikely human love, blood-drinking religious fantatics, a pack of London werewolves and (rumour has it) the oldest remaining vampire on earth. This second instalment in Glen Duncan's werewolf trilogy pushes the were-myth further into uncharted territory with the definitive twenty-first-century female of the species. Gory and sexy, Talulla Rising is a thrilling take on our relationship with the wildside from a highly regarded literary novelist. The final book, By Blood We Live, will be published by Text in 2013. Glen Duncan was born in Bolton in 1965 and studied philosophy and literature at Lancaster University. His first novel, Hope, was published in 1997 and has been followed by seven further novels. I, Lucifer (2002) was shortlisted for the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. He was named by the Times Literary Supplement as one of Britain's twenty best young novelists. His work has been translated into more than a dozen languages. He lives in London. textpublishing.com.au 'Duncan delivers with intelligent humanity a monster we want to track and befriend, even knowing she would happily eat us alive...Duncan's throbbing, fornication-crazy plot defies easy encapsulation, but is best described as a gleeful three-way between Raymond Chandler's entire oeuvre, Anne Rice's vampire novels and Umberto Eco's 'Foucault's Pendulum.' Proust, as usual, is watching from the corner...The arch relationship Duncan establishes with his readers – along with his scathingly intelligent psychological insights and flat-out killer writing, his companionably high-mannered narrative voice and his mad plot chops – makes Talulla Rising a high-calorie blast.'

I loved The Last Werewolf and also thoroughlyenjoyed this book. While it's not quite as seductive as The Last Werewolf it's pretty close and just as raw, steep and mesmerizing.

Wow-what a read! Very raw and sexual, good pace, left plenty of room for a sequel. Choppy storytelling, but it fit the character's voice.

If you enjoyed the first one, you should be satisfied with this sequel. It's not really because of the characters. To be honest, I prefer Jake's character & story to Tallula's. Also, the book feels just a tad too long. There are countless moments of PERIL & a little editing could have tightened it up (sometimes things are scarier when there's less detail & more room for the reader's imagination) without affecting the plot. But I guess that's Duncan's style & ultimately, why you read his books. If you enjoy his blunt, honest & sardonic take on life, you'll enjoy the book, regardless of who inhabits his twisted world.
