Can one young werewolf stop an evil dragon killer from hosting the Ring of Horrors—a fight to the death between an angry dragon and an innocent giant? Find out in Werewolf versus Dragon.


The Safe Haven

The RSPCB (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts) is a sanctuary for the world’s most endangered beast. The Society was founded many years ago by the world’s first cryptozoologist, Professor Farraway. After the professor passed away, he left his entire fortune to the RSPCB. Unfortunately, his son, the evil Baron Marackai, is determined to get his revenge. He was wants to destroy the RSPCB and take the money that was rightfully his.


The Curious Werewolf

The society is home to Dr. Helen Fielding, the RSPCB’s vet, along with thousands of unusual beasts. You’ll find everything from giants, fairies and gargoyles to armourpods, razorjaws and electrodactyls! The RSPCB is also home to a young werewolf named Ulf, who looks like a human boy on every day but the full moon. Curious and adventurous, Ulf always jumps into the center of the action. That’s why, when a baby dragon is shot down from the sky, Ulf is determined to find the person responsible.


The Suspicious Inspector

When Inspector Black shows up at the RSPCB to conduct an investigation, Ulf senses that something is wrong. Inspector Black believes that the dragon killer shot the baby dragon in order to capture its mother. He suspects that the murderer plans to build a Ring of Horrors, an arena where spectators watch two endangered beasts battle to the death. But why would Inspector Black have such strong suspicions if he has no evidence? Obviously he knows more about the case than he lets on.


The Bottom Line

Werewolf versus Dragon is the first book in the exciting An Awfully Beastly Business series. Unlike most fantasy books, this series is chalked full of the most unusual beasts you can imagine. At only 183 pages (with very big font), this book is a quick read. But it’s climactic and action-packed. Werewolf versus Dragon is a perfect story for those leaving the Magic Tree House series behind and venturing into the wonderful world of tween reads.

    Alright, I need to vent about something. In this one role-play called Logan: The Beast Unleashed, I have this one character named Aiden who is a former mercenary assassin. (I know, pretty dark. But just hear me out here.) Aiden went to try and convince Logan to come back, and pretty much failed. Going to Logan, Aiden killed 5 thugs that he came across that were going to do something pretty bad if he didn't do something first. At the middle of the time he had there, he killed a guy that was going to inform people about him which would be awful. A month later, Aiden received a letter. The day after, a guy entered the side street that Aiden lived in, giving Aiden the right to kill him. Then the leader said, "Can you please tone it down with Aiden's killing?" I kill 5 guys, then 1 more, and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. First, he killed 6 people in one day. Then one month and a day later, I kill someone and then told to tone it down. How does he know whether or not Aiden had been keeping away from killing people? Meanwhile, his character Carl kills whoever crosses his path, just to get to a girl. Carl goes and kill countless people and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. Carl doesn't seem to be much different than Aiden! If anything,  he should tone it down! I just can't believe it. 1 month and 1 day later, kill a 7th guy and then, "Can you please tone it down?" HOW ABOUT YOU TONE IT DOWN?! It isn't very logical to tell me to tone it down when he has so much more going on! Sure, a lot has to change so Aiden can work with the others, but I don't want to be told to tone it down when Carl can't tone it down! Why can't Aiden just continue on with his usual act and make it more fun and challenging for when the time comes for Aiden to cooperate with others? *sarcastically* IT ISN'T LIKE ANYONE IS BEING PRO-FAVORED HERE! Seriously, the leader makes it so much harder for me to really do anything and makes it easier for everyone else. I'M NOT EVEN THE VILLAIN! I feel incredibly disrespected when he constantly makes it so much harder for me. Sure, the challenge is fun sometimes. But if I feel like as if I can't do anything and make no progress, then how in the world am I supposed to have fun? Role-playing is for having fun. I don't want to leave, I just don't to participate in a role-play where I can't have fun.

Now you believe that Trump is basically Hitler reincarnated which is legit so let's say 'Trump is Hitler' which has a letter total of.... Yes. 13 letters. Now if Hitler was a fascist and Trump is basically Hitler then wouldn't that make Trump also a fascist. Of course this breakthrough of Trump a Fascist couldn't be made public so it was subliminally confirmed through the numbering of letters. Smart. Also, Donald has six letters, so does Hitler. Cohencidence? I think not.
