Life as we knew it pretty much ended with the lightning fast spread of the plague. The media called it Werewolf Syndrome. Women got sick, many died. They were the lucky ones. Men got sick, too, but those who didn't die... changed. A few immune men, like myself, joined the bands of refugees, scrounging for survival in the post-apocalyptic devastation.

I lived in a fortified compound with a couple dozen women, a bunch of kids and two asshole straight guys. Sounds like a man's wet dream -- unless you happen to be the last gay man standing. At the time, risking my life scavenging in the city sounded like a fucking vacation.

I went out hunting supplies and found something else. Not a quick death, or even a slow, painful one at the hands of the beasts -- no such luck. Instead I find myself captive to the largest, most well organized gang of beast men ever. Their leader, Mace, wants more than just a generator -- he wants my body. Oddly, a certain part of me likes that idea. The other part –- the part with working survival instincts -- insists I get the hell out of Dodge before my smart mouth gets the shit kicked out of me. Again. Tradeoffs...

I hate to admit it but I almost let this book pass me by -- but after reading a few excerpts I just had to listen to that little voice saying "read me". Now I am glad I listened. Wolfman Apocalypse is a great read. I don’t read a lot of male/male books and the ones I do read really have to catch my eye. This one did just that. I was caught hook, line and sinker and enjoyed the ride through and through.

One night while Daniel, one of the only humans left that are not infected by the virus, is out scrounging for supplies he comes across some men who have been infected and changed by the virus. Mace the leader of the pack decides that Daniel’s brains and talents are worth more to the pack than Daniel being a sex toy for them.

Daniel learns the ways of the pack and tries to keep his head down but there are those that don’t like him or Mace’s choice to keep him around and they decide to make trouble. The relationship that builds between Mace and Daniel is a great read. I loved Daniel and his smart mouth. He is a man willing to stand up and fight even when he knows that he is in a fight for his life. Mace is a great guy as well. He leads the pack with a atrong but fair hand and is ready to defend not only Daniel but also any human in need. The two make a good couple playing off of each other very well. Not only do we get to meet these two characters we also meet many other interesting men and woman in this story. I would love to come back and visit this world again to see what happens to some of the other members of the pack.

Brannan Black weaves a great tale with fantastic characters full of emotion and depth. I was pulled in right from the start and couldn’t put it down. Wolfman Apocalypse grabs your attention from the first page and keeps you on your toes all the way to the end making this a book that should not be missed.
