Publisher: Chicken House.
Released: 3rd August 2009.
Official synopsis: "When Nat Carver takes home a strange and smelly mutt, his life is changed forever. Woody is the last of his kind, a Wolven, thought only to exist in legend. Then Nar discovers Woody has escaped from a top-secret science project - and some very bad guys want him back..."
I got this book free last year when I got GHOST HUNTER by Michelle Paver as it was a Buy One, Get One Free offer, and I only got around to reading it a few weeks ago.
Wolven is very funny in places, and is a brilliant read for young teens. Whilst I enjoyed it, there are some parts of the book that feel quite young.
My thoughts on it are quite mixed to be honest, and I'm not entirely sure what to say about it. Whilst I loved it, and thought it amazing, now after a little time away from the book, I don't know if I feel the same way. It is still a good book. But parts feel clunky and there are a few plot holes. Still, it's good for a light read I suppose.
I do have to say that the cover art is stunning, and very clever. The image changes as you move it, from a boy to a wolf. Very smart, something that made me pick it.
Still very much looking forward to reading the second book Wolven: The Twilight Circus due in May.
