Predator: A creepy page turner
A Bram Stoker nominated author, Janice Gable Bashman’s Young Adult novel, Predator, is a must read for all werewolf fans. It has been described as offering “originality on the page” and “a couple of new spins” to the werewolf legend. The story begins with sixteen-year-old Bree Sunderland visiting Ireland with her scientist father, thinking it would be a vacation to study bog bodies. She never expected to fall in love with a mysterious young Irishman and certainly never expected to become the kind of monster her father said only existed in nightmares.
Dr. Sunderland discovers that lycanthropy was not a supernatural curse but a genetic mutation. The military wants to turn his research into a bio weapons program while rogue soldiers want to steal the research to turn themselves into unstoppable killing machines. As a result, Bree must inject herself with an untested version of her scientist father’s gene therapy to become a werewolf in order to stop these corrupt mercenaries from creating a team of unstoppable lycanthrope soldiers. Bree’s boyfriend Liam then surprises her with a visit to the US, but there are darker surprises in store for both of them.
