First experience with Ray Garton. I don't usually read werewolf fiction; in fact, I can say Cycle of The Werewolf and Wolf's Hour may be the only ones I have read. And those were 20 years ago, easily.

Ray Garton is the author of more than 60 novels, novellas, short story collections, movie novelizations. Take a trip to Big Rock, California. but try to avoid the local wildlife. 11 Twisted Ray Garton Books That Will Give You Nightmares. Indulge in an endless supply of chills, thrills, and gore with the best Ray Garton books. These stories by the Grand Master of Horror are guaranteed to keep you up at night.

When the residents of the coastal California town of Big Rock are plagued by a curse that is spread through sex, Sheriff Arlin Hurley and his men must stop the growing terror and discover that many of the old werewolf legends are just myths--the reality is far worse. Original.
First published in 2008, "Ravenous", by Ray Garton is a powerful, scary, graphically bloody and erotic take on the werewolf mythos that I many of us were first introduced to by the 1941 Universal film, The Wolfman starring Lon Chaney Jr. as Larry Talbot, the unfortunate cursed by the bite of a werewolf to turn into a werewolf "...when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright(or...the moon is full and bright in subsequent movies)"

But this is not your father's or grandfather's werewolf. This is Ray Garton's. Meshing Garton's trademark potpourri of lust, sex, blood and guts, "Ravenous" is perhaps the most original re-telling of the age-old man to wolf story. When I read Glen Duncan's "The Last Werewolf" in 2011 and the sequel, 2012's "Tallulah Rising" (both of which I enjoyed tremendously), I thought that I had seen the first well-writtten, werewolf stories in recent years to capture the oddly harmonious blend of "sex, eat, kill, that" makes so much sense for werewolf tales. Duncan's writing has been criticized by many for being "too literary" but I in truth, I never understood those comments.

Now here comes Ray Garton. Actually, there went Ray Garton, because his werewolf saga was first published in 2008, three full years before Glen Duncan's, and the core werewolf behavior of "sex, eat, kill, that" was first described by Garton. The trinity was clearly espoused by him first And it is central to his mythos, more so than in Duncan's universe. In Garton's world, werewolves are not created by anything as impersonal as the bite of a werewolf. Nah, the virus is spread like an STD, and requires the victim to have intercourse, willingly or unwillingly, with a werewolf either in human or lupine form. Cool idea. I don't think there is any danger that a critic will read this one and opine that it is "too literary". This is the third Ray Garton novel I've read and I think it is perhaps the best one in terms of character development, unexpected twists and turns, and overall edge-of-your-seat excitement.

Long story (342 pages on my iPad) short, a single mysterious death starts Sheriff Hurley of Big Rock, CA on an journey into horror that he never expected. He is but one of several clearly drawn characters including a vicious wife-beater husband, his beautiful young wife, Andrea, and the slightly nerdish next-door neighbor twenty-something son living with his parents who has a big time crush on the lovely Andrea, and several others. Garton juggles and intertwines their stories like the seasoned pro that he is, and the result is a wonderful melange of sex, blood, the best and worst in human behavior, taut writing and plotting, and fast pacing that I suspect will keep many readers up way past their bedtimes turning just one more page to see what happens next.

As with all Garton's work that I have read, this one is NOT for those easily offended by realistic language and explicit sex and graphic gore. With that caveat,

Highly Recommended.

A woman is brutally raped and her attacker is taken to the morgue. When the sheriff goes to the morgue to see if he can identify the dead assailant, the body isn't there. Soon a naked man is spotted running out of the hospital's ER doors. The sheriff sends his deputy after the man and the deputy ends up brutally murdered in a disemboweling that is determined was done by a large, unseen, wolf-like animal. At the scene of one killing, a mysterious man shoots a "killer" leaving a mysterious, half-changed body that resembles both a human and a wolf. The strangers informs the sheriff that "he's got a werewolf infestation" in his small Northern California town of Big Rock and that its spread as a STD.

I have to give Garton an A for creativity. I love how he updates the lycanthrope mythology and interweaves it in a tightly written thrill fest. The main characters are distinctive and no one is above being the next victim.The blood pours from the pages as the carnage piles up. The werewolves are vicious and show no mercy. This is my first read of Garton's work and I highly recommend it.

Author Garton brings his own special twist to werewolves in "Ravenous" just as he did to vampires in Live Girls.

In this snapping good look at "lupus verenus," don't worry about turning into a werewolf from scratches and bites. No - it takes sexual contact. So be warned that this isn't your kids' horror book. This is definitely the grown-up version.

Affairs, spousal abuse and all the intrigues of a small town plague Big Rock, California but it's the plague of werewolves that is killing that small town ambiance.

Fast paced, great character development, an author that doesn't shy away from killing off his characters (any of them) - all go into the best werewolf book I've read. I'm now looking forward to reading the sequel Bestial.
Who needs to watch scary movies when you have Roy Garton writing horror? Turning each page was both hard and easy for me. Hard because I was scared to death and easy because I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. Imagine living in a town overrun by werewolves and finding there’s nothing you can do about it. Thankfully the town fights back and give the werewolves a run for the money. Read Ravenous. You’ll be glad you did.
This book keeps you going. Even though it took me a while longer to finish it because of my busy schedule. Ravenous is a good book but not for the more high moral readers. Its about Werewolves in a small town killing and raping the people. (yep everyone with some class most likely left the page after reading that line.) Its a virus that is passed on through sex. The violent parts are kinda tame compared to some other books I have read. Most of the victims were over the age of 18. (or 17) The characters were well developed however. There was a slight romance with in the novel. And it kept you turning the page!! After I read this I really wanted to read the second book but I have so many other books lined up till I will get the second book later on. I didn't know it had a second part until I saw it while browsing amazon. I really want to know what and how these things will be stopped. Like I said I have so many other books lined up, I will not be able to jump right into the second right away. It has been a good book and i know I will never forget what happen in the first book. So with that said, I want everyone out there who likes thrillers and horror to take a ride with this Ravenous Werewolf book!
