  1. Izgleda da mi, tre i po redu, nastavak serijala The Last Werewolf uop te nije legao.Koliko mi je Talulin opor bio bolji od Poslednjeg vukodlaka , toliko mi je Krv na a nasu na slabija od Talule Ovom utisku je najvi e doprinelo nezadovoljstvo i antipatija koju sam polako, ali sigurno, razvila prema glavnom liku Taluli Smorila sam se kao zmaj itaju i o njenim ve itim dilemama, neodlu nosti, i na momente o njenoj sebi nostiS druge strane, Rem i mi je jedan od najzanimljivijih likova u serijalu, i u [...]

  2. 3.5I hate to say it, but I was a little disappointed by this book Don t get me wrong, it was good even amazing at some parts , but I expected so much I guess that after how great Talulla s Rising was, I expected this book to be just as good, but it just wasn t.But even though I had problems with the last book, the trilogy as a whole, was beyond amazing I loved the world Duncan created, complex characters and well thought mythology, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who s fan of fant [...]

  3. This review was originally written for and posted at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography s site The publisher graciously provided me with a galley copy of this novel I can t say I was delighted when I found out that Glen Duncan, one of my long time favorite living writers, had a werewolf novel in the works, let alone a whole trilogy of em I can say, however, that when The Last Werewolf came out a few years ago, it won me over in a matter of pages, as tackling the ever and, for me, [...]

  4. I gave book 1The Last Werewolf four stars and book 2 Talulla Risingwas better so I gave it 5 stars This one was even better so please can I give it 6 stars In fact this book was just about perfect I loved Remshi the 2000 year old vampire He should have a series all to himself he is so good Talulla was pretty fantastic in this book too As the final book in the trilogy it certainly wrapped up the story but it also left a lot of stuff out there which could easily become a fourth book What does Talu [...]

  5. It s a sad day for me Glen Duncan s Bloodlines trilogy has finally come to an end This series has been a favourite of mine and I have been desperate to get my hands on By Blood We Live If you don t know, this trilogy started off as a bit of a joke for Glen Duncan One New Year s Eve party he jokingly claimed that he would write a page turner with werewolves, and none of my usual philosophical angst or moral inquiry Having recently been dumped from a publisher he had no best sellers and had won no [...]

  6. A satisfying sequel to The Last Werewolf and Talulla Rising and obviously not the end of the saga Duncan has prepared the ground for a spectacular and epic Monsters vs Humanity tome and I personally can t wait to read it Note I have translated this book for the Serbian edition, as the previous two Duncan s werewolf vampire epics for the publisher Laguna The Serbian title is going to be Krv na a nasu na I expect this edition to appear in February or March 2014 I must admit that the most difficult [...]

  7. A book can make you find room in yourself for something you never thought you d understand Or worse, something you never wanted to understand I stumbled on The Last Werewolf by accident via the lending library on my Kindle and then pun intended, sorry Mr Duncan devoured it, as well as Talulla Rising the moment I got them It should be noted that this is 100% NOT my usual genre of reading, but by God, it got me It got me good The full moon rises You change You need what you need, so you do what yo [...]

  8. An absolutely fabulous ending to an already enthralling trilogy There was this magazine reviewing Duncan that I read and one of the question s asked was something along the lines of Were you happy with the way it ended And Duncan was like, Uh, yeah, I hope so No doubt Duncan knew that this idiot of an interviewer had not only NOT read By Blood We Live , but hadn t read the previous two books either Otherwise, that question would be completely unnecessary.The third book is fantastic I didn t know [...]

  9. I think that Glen Duncan makes up GREAT stories I just really, really hate the way he tells them.Everything I hated about the first book in this series and choked down in the second one was in full force here, starting with how every single character has the exact same smug voice Every Single Character All talking to you And it s not cute or engaging, it s horrible Here s how it goes You think you re interested in the story, so you forget how incredibly much you hate Glen Duncan s voice, and you [...]

  10. By Blood We Live is the last in Glen Duncan s trilogy of werewolf stories The series began in The Last Werewolf in which the World Organization for the Control of Occult Phenomena WOCOP is so good at hunting down monsters that eat people there is but one werewolf left Jake Marlowe While werewolves are not immortal they do live for an awful long time and world weary Jake has seen a lot and done a lot, and is ready to let go of this life Then all of sudden Jake isn t the last werewolf Talulla arri [...]

  11. But even this tenuous peace is interrupted for Talulla by nagging thoughts of Remshi, the 20,000 year old vampire who haunts her dreams In turn Remshi can t escape the feeling that he knows Talulla from years before many, many, many years they are inextricably drawn to each other and toward the moment when an ancient prophecy may finally come to pass asdjgkl asjkdl g Talulla Remshi it s gonna happen thasdjgkasg it s in the fucking descriptTIONaagasa gLEN DUNCAN YOU LIFE RUINER

  12. It s not a secret how I feel about Glen Duncan If there is one author living I could choose to have a drink s with without hesitation it would be him He simply writes on a different plane He operates in a universe all his own He is able to put the simplest words together and make such profound sentences Everything between the two of us rejects all the names for it the world has to offer This is Book 3 of his Werewolf series I ll admit, the 1st book The Last Werewolf still remains my favorite but [...]

  13. Okay, so this was the last book in The Last Werewolf series by Glen Duncan It s my New Moon, Catching Fire, Prisoner of Azkaban of the series I wanted to love this I wanted to feel complete when it was all said and done Yet, nope.Let s catch up SPOILER ALERT if you haven t read the first two books of this series Jake was the last werewolf until Talulla came along Jake dies Book 1 Talulla had their twins, Zoe and Lorcan Lorcan kidnapped Vampires arrive WOCOM fights both BIG todo, and the best boo [...]

  14. Overall, 3.5 starts I considered rounding up but after thinking about it I decided that I didn t enjoy it well enough for 4 stars.This is supposedly the last I the Last Werewolf trilogy, although the ending leaves me in doubt of that I love the style of Duncan s writing It usually always keeps me interested, hanging on every word Despite this, By Blood We Live, left me a bit disappointed I loved this trilogy from the very beginning and maybe I just had too high of expectations for the ending By [...]

  15. Hmm Think I ve reached my limit with these books Tallula and her chums were turning into a bunch of Penelope Pitstops who kept getting captured For people werewolves who were much brilliant than the rest of the human population they didn t seem very bright sometimes I did like the idea of the Catholic Church coming out of the closet at getting involved with killing werewolves and vampires The moral conundrum about when was it okay to kill babies was interesting too Remshi was an odd character I [...]

  16. The third book in Glen Duncan s werewolf vampire but mostly werewolf, at least until this book trilogy is the weakest of the three, and I can pinpoint exactly why it s too diffuse Where the first two books focused on a single protagonist and essentially told a satisfying linear narrative, By Blood We Live shifts perspective from chapter to chapter, at various times centering on four different characters, all with competing motives At a couple points Duncan even goes all Anne Rice, sending us tho [...]

  17. True to form, By Blood We Live is not for the faint of heart or easily disturbed As in the other two books, the descriptions of sex and violence are extremely graphic Mr Duncan leaves nothing to the imagination, especially when it comes to the monthly transformation and the intense build up to it.Yet, for all its explicit scenes of rough sex and gory murder scenes, By Blood We Live is a love story Love is the driving force of the novel, whether it is of lost loves, future loves, or parental love [...]

  18. Book Info Genre Literary horror werewolvesReading Level AdultRecommended for Fans of the author, series, realistic endingsTrigger Warnings murder, memories of child molestation and rape, killing babies, genocidal attemptsMy Thoughts First of all, I have to tell you, the hardcover copy of this book is glorious The edge of the pages are dark brown like dried blood, and the pictures of the moon on the dust jacket are foil, so it looks shiny like fresh blood The texture of the dust jacket is wonderf [...]

  19. It feels a bit odd that much of this book which ends a trilogy about werewolves is narrated by a vampire Yet it works beautifully This final book splits between the perspectives of our old friend Tallula and ancient vampire Remshi Tallula is fighting to survive in a world where the catholic church has created an army to wipe out the supernatural whilst Remshi is trying to help his newly turned companion cope with becoming a monster Both know they are being drawn together, but surely Tallula cann [...]

  20. Weakest of the three Last Werewolf novels I just can t handle much of Duncan s purple prosed bestial erotica The endless hand wringing by each character, vampire or were, over being a monster that loves to kill and eat but has a conscience We all have our cross to bear You cannot drag it out through three weakly plotted novels It was lovely writing, just dull We just don t care what happens to anyone.Duncan dissatisfies in the end to leave room for yet another future werewolf vampire human clif [...]

  21. This is the third book in Duncan s werewolf series I enjoyed the first novel, thought the second was just eh, and this third one was a pain to read Every character has almost the exact same internal monologue and no real depth I had read I, Lucifer by Glen Duncan and a couple other novels Duncan has one tone There is no plot It is a bad hybrid of a bad werewolf vampire porn, twilight, and a snarky teen novel.The antagonists send in small group of soldiers to fight the werewolves vampires at nigh [...]

  22. Boys and girls this, this is a literary orgasmic experience The last moment before the bite is like the last moment before coming stopped time and shrugged off space, an instant of seeing how it is for God It s why people in sexual extremis say Oh, God It s not a cry to the Divine, it s a recognition of their own divinity I was very aware of my mouth open, my heartbeat in my teeth, the obscene ease with which I held him, the room like a frozen grin around us, and beyond it the Californian night [...]

  23. I LOVE Duncan s writing style LOVE It would be difficult for me to hate his books because it s so easy for me to get lost in the lyricism That being said, so many of his characters felt exhausted throughout this book, and that lovely word play only served to turn their weariness into a tombstone around my neck Places were hard to slog through, simply because of the build up of shared bone deep tiredness I d also expected this book to end the trilogy, and for resolutionof which there was very lit [...]

  24. The last of the spoiler alert not quite so last werewolf trilogy is also the worst Still entertaining but it has lost some of its magic by not having a single unique voice as in the previous books Whereas the original narrator Jake was engrossing with his world weary view, when we get several narrators who all are eternally frustrated about this, that and the other it can quickly become somewhat monotonous Worst, however, is the fact that the world s oldest vampire Remshi who in the previous two [...]

  25. All of the trademark Duncanisms are here the dizzying style of writing, the clever turn of phrase, and the willingness to cross boundaries in ways that enhance the story Even so, this is my least favorite of the three books in the trilogy A lot of plot and character pieces get recycled and, even than in the second book, it feels like there s a gaping Jake Marlowe sized hole in the story Duncan goes some way to fixing this problem with the addition of Remshi, whose voice and flashbacks add much [...]

  26. The best werewolf vampire book I ve ever read The way he puts it all together at the end is incredible There s a much deeper meaning to this series than the typical series in this genre It s really about the meaning of life and is their a meaning to it all Duncan does a fantastic job of telling this story about vampires and werewolf s wondering if there is a purpose for their life It s all told with incredible prose and insight.

  27. yes, I was drunk and still drinking when I read the last half of this book and yes, I m drunk now, but I don t think it would matter The perfect, prescient language of this book The beautiful understated, overdescribed moments I picked this book up and bit it than once in a fit of uncontainable fervor Apologies to other library readers.

  28. This is the finale to a very dark, bloody series I have to say, however, that Glen Duncan takes such an insightful, hard and critical look at humanity and our weaknesses that he kept me turning the pages even when I also grimaced a bit Really brilliant writer in my humble opinion and deep thinker about our human psychology.
