41W9A6eeymL._UX250_Stanley Swanson believes that war one day will happen of the creatures of the night but involve humans. He reaches out to a retired journalist ‘Kain’ in hopes that if he shares the secrets with him of both Werewolf and Vampires, that if a war does occur that humans will join sides with the Breed of Werewolf. Kain is then taken on a journey as he and ‘Stanley’ become very close and a friendship is made quickly as Kain agrees to write the journal.

When the knowledge of what Stanley is doing with this mortal is leaked out, the highest of all vampires known as ‘Drackulis’, set a war in place. Stanley’s family is immediately put at risk by a Drackulis known only as ‘Gravakus’. It is then upon Stanley’s return home with Kain that he soon learns that he himself has put his breed and more importantly his family at risk. Finding out later of the attacker, Stanley and his older brother ‘Stephen’ set out to take action upon Gravakus.

As both Stanley and Stephen depart, the war slowly develops by blindsides from both the Werewolf and Drackulis. It is done so by the werewolf ‘Zea’ and the Drackulis known as Gravakus. ‘Sirtimi’ the oldest known Drackulis sets his twin sons ‘Dimitris and Siluk’ out to stop the journal from becoming public to the mortals and to kill the human ‘Kain’ for his interference with their kind. More importantly as the treaty has been broken, the war upon werewolves slowly becomes.

Over time, Kain had wished to be turned to a werewolf but it is against the code of the Lycans and being denied he grows frustrated. Zea asks Kain for a favor to allow him to take him in the past to see who had killed his friend in a war hundreds of years ago. When Kain agrees, he does so not knowing that Zea was wanting to see what it was that a Drackulis put in the mouth of his once friend. Zea knew that Kain had talent and a keen eye in being a journalist and it would prove correct. When Kain returns from the past experience with Zea, he informs him of what caused his friends death. It is then that Zea shares the discovery with the Drackulis in trust that he will not be harmed by them if and when a war were to become.

“Amazing new approach to werewolves!”

Five Star Review on Amazon By TjWeeks

I was given a copy of this book by Author S.K. Ballinger. It did have some edits that needs to be fixed, but the story line was so intriguing that I could not put it down. The characters were brought to life very well & it made it easy to get to know each of them. The details were so on target that it was like watching a movie in my head. For those of you that haven’t read this book, it’s a different approach for werewolves. I don’t want to give anything away, but Stan & Kain are some awesome characters that I believe everyone should get to know. When reading a book that was put together this well that you can’t put it down, it makes me wonder why I haven’t heard of this author before & why it’s not on film for everyone’s viewing pleasure. It’s not very often that I find a book like this that I really care about pushing it out there, so those of you that know me will know it must be good.
S.K. Ballinger is a great man & a family man. I’ve never met him in person, but he’s definitely got enough heart for everyone to push him to the top. So I urge everyone to spread this name around & most definitely this book, because I’m sure we haven’t heard the last out of him. I would hope to see a lot more coming in the near future.
Even with the edits, I give this book 5 stars!

Dover, DE - While nobody will deny that werewolf fiction has enjoyed a significant boom in popularity, both readers and critics are currently crying out for wholly unique new narratives that don’t succumb to recycling of the same old concepts. Thankfully, author S.K. Ballinger has stepped up to the plate with gusto.
His ‘Swanson Series’, currently comprising two volumes, bucks all convention. Stereotypes are thrown out of the window and the rule book is rippled to pieces…except one journal that could be about to become the cause of a war.
Synopses:

Volume two, ‘Rise of the Lycan’ - Every legend has a beginning and the same holds true with Stanley, the son of Sebastian Swanson. Being the first Lycan which he did not ask for, Sebastian learns over time his abilities, weaknesses and life in general. Making an agreement with a powerful Drackulis to not bite a human or war will one day happen, Sebastian out of loneliness disregarded those words. Years pass and he is settled down when he hears information from a dear friend which was the first one he bit, that they are now in danger by his own mistake. The hunt for Sebastian is on as he, his wife and friend relocate back to England where it all began. In this book you will take a journey of how Stanley and his brother Stephen became and other original characters such as Sirtimi were part of the first book ‘Stanley Swanson – Breed of a Werewolf’.
“I’ve always had a fascination with werewolves, but have been slightly put off by books where all they do is change at the sight of a full moon, and get killed by a silver bullet,” explains Ballinger. “I felt that they deserved more creative justice; to become figures that were not just a cliché in stories, but central figures with a very deep intricacy. This series provides that approach, and readers will bond very deeply with the characters I have created.”
Continuing, “It’s a very deep intertwining experience. For example, volume two gives the back stories of the characters readers have already encountered in the first book, as well as bringing together five short stories about them. There’s also a totally separate book titled ‘Bloodline Series’ that features each of the characters that all originated from ‘Breed of a Werewolf’. Interest in the series has surged, and reader feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.”
Ballinger isn’t exaggerating. For example, Milissa Stockholm comments, “I love this book. Has a different outlook on werewolves. Will draw you in and not let you go. Must read.” Heather Ray comments, “Wonderful! !!!!! This book was fantastic and I had a hard time putting it down. There was a slow part in the middle, don’t give up, it gives need to know detail related to late in the book. There is a unique approach to the war between werewolves and vampires. The story draws you in and you are hooked.” Kris Weeks, “This book made me absolutely love werewolves and vampires. I never thought I could love characters as much as I loved these. Will read everything this author has!!!” also comments from Author TJ Weeks, “The characters were brought to life very well & it made it easy to get to know each of them. The details were so on target that it was like watching a movie in my head. For those of you that haven’t read this book, it’s a different approach for werewolves. I don’t want to give anything away, but Stan & Kain are some awesome characters that I believe everyone should get to know.

It’s not very often that I find a book like this that I really care about pushing it out there, so those of you that know me will know it must be good. I would hope to see a lot more coming in the near future. I give this book 5 stars!
