I haven’t really heard of it, but there’s a werewolf novel called Benighted that is being developed into a movie. The people behind it are Andrew Adamson, the director of the first two Shrek films and the first two episodes of the Chronicles of Narnia, and producer Graham King. At the moment, it’s still in the works and being talked about, but we’ll have to wait and see if it actually comes the screen. However, we do know the basic idea behind the movie…

It’s a great story, it’s kind of dealing with issues of apartheid in a different way. It’s a world which is 95 per cent werewolves and the 5 per cent non-werewolves are kind of kept around because they can police the one night a month when everyone goes a bit anarchic.

I wasn’t expecting to find this. It’s an online story by Narissa Rose, called The Silver Pentagram, and it involves werewolves. I haven’t gotten to far into the story, but it seems to be about racial tensions between humans and the newly discovered werewolf race. It would probably be classified as young adult, and it’s only Part 1 of unknown parts, but if you like new talent, I would check it out.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
