    • I don't usually read books about werewolves or vampires. I like my horror to be more unusual or psychologically driven. My first exception was Glen Hirshberg's imaginative and heartbreaking vampire novel, Motherless Child. It blew me away. My second exception is now Jonathan Janz's novel, Wolf Land. Mr. Janz gives the werewolf genre a refreshing makeover. While there is plenty of action, violence and gore to be experienced, this story shines by bringing it's characters to the forefront. Each ind [...]



    • Wolf Land is a wild, roaring, face-ripping ride!Sometimes a reader finds themselves looking for a book which reads like the equivalent of a B grade movie. That's the position in which I found myself last week, and since I recently interviewed Jonathan Janz for Horror After Dark, I thought this book would fit the bill. It did! Now, when I say "the literary equivalent of a B grade movie", that doesn't mean the language or the storytelling were sub-par, because they most definitely were not. What I [...]


    • 4.5 stars, rounded up.Jonathan Janz continues to amaze me with how he can take creatures that we have read and watched hundreds of books and movies about, and yet still manage to create something completely "new"! In WOLF LAND, Janz takes on the werewolf lore, and gives us an entirely unique perspective on their origins and behaviors."But whatever the species, it all boiled down to the same thing. Death."As I've come to expect from this author, his characterization is top-notch. From the good-bo [...]


    • The wild get extremely weird and the blood drenched fur flies when the survivors of a werewolf attack find themselves losing controld their small town finds itself in a battle for survival between the unwitting spawn of lycanthropic evil.d the source of the bloodline.Janz pulls no punches, balancing action, horror and a healthy dose of humanity like a master in this feral fiend of a tale, along with nods to every shade of werewolf from poor old Larry Talbot to the latest flavor of furry sociopat [...]


    • This fast-paced read was a frenzy of carnality in epic proportions. Visceral and surreal, Janz has outdone himself with this newest title.All I can tell you is to throw on the nearest raincoat and grab some boots because Jonathan is hailing blood and body parts non-stop! You're sure to get soaked by all the horrors between these pages.An A+ read. Mr. Janz has really grown as an author. If he wasn't already on your auto-buy list, well, he should be.Recommended for everyone, especially splatter-pu [...]

    • A drunken beach party gets a wee out of hand as a vengeful pissed off werewolf crashes the bonfire and starts eating the guests. That is a party foul of the first magnitude!! Major party pooper. Not to mention the fact that it is run off before it can finish off the guest list, leaving several friends to turn on their own. Thank goodness there isn’t another gathering in the near future like a High School reunion which would be an opportunity to finish what was started. Oh…wait…come to thin [...]


    • Jonathan Janz is something of an enigma. Not only is he one of the nicest writers you could hope to correspond with, but if his writing is anything to go by, he also has some seriously deranged ideas running around in his head. He has also moved away from quiet, unsettling horror to in-your-face, visceral horror, whereas most authors tend to chart a path in the opposite direction. And his latest release from Samhain Publishing, Wolf Land, only emphasises his progression down this blood-drenched [...]


    • I finally decided to simply not rate this one. I had the audio book and I hated the narrator. His normal speech was done well enough but far too often he would use this low, growly, (werewolfy?) voice that came across as partly silly and partly irritating. I couldn't get past that nails on a chalkboard voice far enough to comment on the actual story. I'm happy to be putting this behind me so I can move on to the other Janz books already lined up on my Kindle - Exorcist Road and The Nightmare Gir [...]


    • For years now, the werewolf has been hijacked by the shifter romance genre. Well, Jonathan Janz has claimed a bloody morsel back for the horror genre! There has been a bit of a drought in the horror genre for the classic monsters. Sure, if you go looking you will find vampires and werewolves all over the place, but these books generally treat the monster as something more human than beast, a tortured soul looking for a mate to ease the torment that the character has experienced in their intermin [...]


    • Jonathan Janz has hit another home run of horror, and this novel is my favorite of his so far. I'll admit it, werewolves are the coolest creature in the pantheon of horror fiction monsters, but it's satisfying when an author comes along with a spin or twist, or different angle, on something that's been done numerous times before (although I'd argue that the number of vampire and even zombie novels far outweighs that of the shapeshifter). And Janz does that extremely well.The town of Lakeview, Il [...]


    • I am not a big fan of Werewolf stories but I have read other books by Jonathan Janz and have not been disappointed. Duane, Weezer and Savannah and their friends were going to attend their class reunion. There is a outside gathering of all the classmates to celebrate their 10 year reunion. Things go quickly downhill for here and they will never be the same again. A Werewolf breaks up the informal gathering and starts to murder the innocent bystanders. After the first attack, there were seven dead [...]


    • I discovered Jonathan Janz about one and a half, maybe two years ago when I read his novel, THE SORROWS. Brian Keene called that book the best horror novel of the year for 2012, and for good reason. It was the best horror novel I had read in years. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of reading pretty much every book Janz has written and have been pleasantly surprised to watch him grow and get better with every book he writes. His newest novel, WOLF LAND, continues that trend.WOLF LAND is a blood [...]


    • Jonathan Janz is an amazing author and a really nice guy, so when I saw that he had a blog tour coming up with Hook of a Book - and for Wolf Land - I jumped on board. (Book tours always give me a reason to move books I have on hand further up on my TBR list haha.)Janz has a talent that, unfortunately, most writers do not have. He not only knows how to write a story that stays with you and gets into your head, but his use of characters and setting are simply spot on in every book I have read of h [...]


    • "To summarise: a werewolf story with feeling. Characters that you could be living next door to because you believe everything they are going through. Flip the page and the blood sprays all over your face. Fast, fun and exciting. If you like your horror you will love this. If you like werewolves, you will think you have died and gone to heaven. Highly recommended."See the full review here:Wolf Land


    • My second book of 2016 - which I read partly in parallel to the brilliant Summer of Night - turned out to be another great one! Jonathan Janz, writer of Exorcist Road and Dust Devils, which I read and enjoyed last year and Savage Species, which took a great leap upwards in my to-read-pile, offers his take on the werewolf legend and it is really a great one! But let's start at the beginning, because, much like Dust Devils, the best part is the one before the full-on bloody mayhemIt's the 10 year [...]


    • AhhJonathan Janz. This guy is like a fine wine. He simply gets better with age. Anyone that has followed my reviews knows that I was already a big fan of his. With Wolf Land, my fandom is approaching man-crush territory. Before I start sounding like Annie Wilkes here, let's move on. 2015 seemed to be the year of the werewolf for me. I read some absolutely amazing lycanthropic tales in 2015. From Bill Schweigart's excellent, The Beast of Barcroft, to the gem-laden short-story collection, Best New [...]


    • Another good one from Janz. It really seems the werewolf doesn't get its due as one of the top tier supernatural creatures. I really always considered werewolves 2nd right behind vampires, but since zombies have gotten so popular I suppose the pecking order could have changed.In any case, Wolf Land is a great title because not only do have A werewolf, we have several. This is a truly horrific novel, and if there was anything about it I disliked it was I thought it may have been a little too dark [...]




    • From the first line, this book grabs your attention and never lets go. Janz has a good eye for characteristics, recognizing the things most of us really think while we’re presenting something else to the world. The flashback to Mike’s un-charmed life is filled with instances and images that resound truthfully. The guy that’s prepared to stand on top of the world is the one that gets hurts the most when he falls.Mike, like Glenn and Duane and every other male in the book, is infatuated with [...]


    • Probably the best werewolf novel I've read in a decade. I've only read one other Jonathan Janz book to date (Savage Species) and I liked it, but he has taken his game to another level with WOLF LAND. Now I'm chomping at the bit to read his other books.I'm a huge fan of creature horror and it has always seemed that werewolves have not gotten their due. With WOLF LAND, Janz has taken the usual "guy gets bitten by werewolf guy turns into werewolf" and multiplies the horror exponentially with the in [...]


    • I think the best part of this read was the beast itself. This is not the nowadays werewolf we have become accustom tois is a nightmare beast! Wolf is a predator with leering golden eyes. And though it is proper to cheer the "good guy" (us mere humans) I have to say, the Wolf had my respect and was a worthy, scary, fear inducing foe.There is a lot more to this story than Wolf, and that is the humans. I have read several of Janz's stories and generally I can in some way identify with one or two of [...]


    • A rip roaring werewolf tale that's fun from start to finish. This is my second Jonathan Janz novel and I am now officially a fan. I'm given this book 4 big claw marks out of 5. Great book.


    • I wanted to love this, I really did. The author's involved in the discussion of this book at H.A and he seems like a cool dude and can dish-out some really pulpy gore, butI mean, I'll be honest, it takes a lot to get me to like werewolves or anything fantasy-magic-y with wolves because, truly, it's way too overdone. And cheesy. And weird.*Don't get me wrong, real wolves are awesome, but, like, not fappable, gross.And then, these characters. If I cared about them, I hated their arcs (or their ant [...]


    • I was a little late to the party concerning the writings of Jonathan Janz. I took the plunge last year with The Nightmare Girl. I went through it like a freight train and really enjoyed it. The next of his novels I tried out was Dust Devils. Janz' Vampire novel. Vampires, when done well are amongst my favourite horror nasty and Janz blew me away with a vicious tale set in the wild west. So this brings me to WolfLand. Could Jonathan Janz breathe new life into a genre of horror fiction that has se [...]


    • Jonathan Janz once again managed to slay my expectations with his ever-growing faculty to craft a dark and compelling story. Janz is one of the top talents writing horror fiction today. I don’t hand out praise of that caliber to just anyone. Janz has chops. And heart.With his latest offering, Wolf Land, Janz unleashes a ferocious beast of a tale, quite possibly a contender for best werewolf novel in decades. I found myself thinking about the characters during separations from the book. That’ [...]


    • Review: WOLF LAND by Jonathan JanzWhenever I hear of a new Jonathan Janz story, I want to jump and shout. This is an author who brings his best game to every story. He never disappoints, a writer you can count on.WOLF LAND is heavy-duty horror, but it's also superb delineation of life in a small community, both for the town as a whole, and for individuals--those who remain and those who move away. Mr. Janz is not content with surface characterization: he delves deeper than even the characters th [...]


    • I was a little bit "cheesed" out in the beginning (a bonfire with 20-somethings who still have issues from high school), but then the story gained momentum and turned into a B-movie-ish bloody good time. Very graphic, very gruesome, but the setting and characterizations were done rather well. I wonder if Zach Galifianakis will play "Weezer" if there's ever a movie version?
