“The wolf has woken…”

Cameron’s life of shifting between the Human and Daemon worlds is under threat.

Two sinister figures want to destroy the Parallel – the realm between the worlds populated by daemons, dark creatures, old gods and werewolves – and everyone in it.

To save the Parallel, Cameron must make the ultimate sacrifice, but what is he prepared to lose?

********************************************

Roy Gill was born in Edinburgh, grew up in Kirkintilloch and Kirkcaldy, and studied at Stirling, Strathclyde and Glasgow. He is now living in Edinburgh again.

In 2008, having completed Glasgow University’s Creative Writing MLitt, he was shortlisted for the Sceptre Prize. In 2010 he was the winner of a New Writer’s Award from the Scottish Book Trust.

The manuscript of his first novel, Daemon Parallel, made the shortlist for 2011 Kelpies Prize. It was then published by Floris Books in 2012. It has been very well reviewed, including this from Paul Magrs: “I adored The Daemon Parallel. I really, really want it to be the first in a sequence. I want it to be a boxed set of novels that are just about falling apart with repeated rereadings. That’s how much I enjoyed this first one.” A sequel, Werewolf Parallel – alongside a new edition of Daemon Parallel – will help launch the YA imprint KelpiesTeen in Spring 2014.

Roy’s other writing includes a season special – ‘The Prime of Deacon Brodie’ – for Big Finish’s audio drama series The Confessions of Dorian Gray, and short stories for iconic adventurers Iris Wildthyme and Sherlock Holmes.

He is currently working on more scripts and a third novel.

I did not read book 1 but I will go back and read it.  Werewolf Parallel is so captivating and I really feel like I missed out by not reading the first book – going back next to read it.  I never wanted to put this down.  I love books that do an excellent job of of mixing mythological characters, fantastical characters and magical others into one story – blending them into the storyline and doing it very well.  Roy Gill does a great job and he keeps the readers’ interest.  There is excitement, mystery, humor, and more.  Something for everyone and very fast paced!  I am actually going to go back and read both with my daughter.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
