Book Synopsis



A thrilling series for Ranger's Apprentice fans!

Imagine a world ruled by Werelords--men and women who can shift at will into bears, lions, and serpents. When Drew suddenly discovers he's not only a werewolf but the long-lost heir to the murdered Wolf King's throne, he must use his wits and newfound powers to survive in a land suddenly full of enemies. Drew's the only one who can unite the kingdom in a massive uprising against its tyrant ruler, Leopold the Lion. But the king is hot on Drew's tail and won't rest until he's got the rebel wolf's head.

"Game of Thrones for the tween set." --School Library Journal



Review Quotes




Praise for the Wereworld series:

Rise of the Wolf
"Jobling's debut initiates a sure-to-be-long series of Wereworld tales, pure fantasy adventure with plenty of horror in the mix...this will find broad appeal among lovers of adventure fantasy, especially those mourning the end of John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice."--Kirkus Reviews

"[A] rousingly gory heroic fantasy...there are plenty of brutal fights for action lovers, and the quest has some stirring moments. Give this series opener to fans of Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series."--Booklist

"In this thrilling middle-grade debut, first in the Wereworld series, British author/illustrator Jobling (the designer of the Bob the Builder TV series) creates a memorable new setting in which were-creatures rule...a thoroughly enjoyable adventure that makes particularly inventive use of its shape-shifter elements and mythology."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Even reluctant readers should enjoy Wereworld as the first in a new series...as a fantasy world it is superior to Eragon, and pure fun."--The Times (London)

"The nail-biting pace and plot turns will keep the reader wondering exactly how Drew will resolve it all...there is enough romantic heat, girl power, and vulnerable tough guys to guarantee interest from the Twilight crowd."--BCCB

"This first book in the series hits all the bases for a fairy tale with fangs...this will be a popular book, particularly for the young sword and sorcery fan contingent."--Library Media Connections

"Assured and lively enough to captivate with its strong world building and approachable language...will draw followers to the sequel like Drew to a damsel in distress."--VOYA

"Can he write it? Yes, he can!...a good mix of the traditional pre-industrial society with shape-shifters, and looks like it could be the start of a very fun ride."--Geek Dad on Wired.com

Rage of Lions
"Give Jobling a... hand for crafting a sequel that's even more lurid and action packed than the opener."--Kirkus Reviews

"Game of Thrones for the tween set..."--School Library Journal

Shadow of the Hawk
"Plotlines and were-creatures proliferate ...there's enough spilled blood and shape changing here to appease the most demanding fans of either."--Booklist
