Really like the series. It took a few chapters to really get into it, but once I did, I was hooked.

An amazing and well written book, a true epic tale of adventure, suspense and heroism. I personally loved this book and am looking forward to the next book, Wereworld: Rage of the Lion.

This one was recommended to me by an enthusiastic young male reader, and I can see why. Werewolves for young adults, yes, but none of that romance stuff or competition with vampires or anything at all like the horde of Twilight spawns. It's a high fantasy, where the lords, ladies, and nobility are all werecreatures of one sort or another.
Drew, our young protagonist, is a simple farm lad. Until the day a creature of some sort crashes through the window and kills his mom and he instinctively transforms into a creature himself to chase off the intruder. His dad arrives home and, thinking Drew is the murderer, tries to kill him. Drew flees into the woods and lives as a wild beast for months, until an encounter with others draws him out and he begins to learn about the larger world. There is more to Drew's story than he knows, and suddenly strangers are both hunting him down to kill him and offering him assistance, and he finds himself caught up in a world of action, intrigue, and betrayal.
Fast-paced and suspenseful, this is a good option for those looking for a new adventure fantasy series to get hooked into.
