Northwoods Wolfman by Scott Burtness – Humor, Paranormal Mystery

Northwoods Wolfman coverI’m a fan of the author and eagerly awaited this second book in the series – I wasn’t disappointed!  While you can read this book as a stand-alone novel, I’d encourage readers to read the 1st book in the series, Wisconsin Vamp.

First and foremost, potential readers should know is that this is a humorous take on the vampire-werewolf-witch stories.  If you don’t enjoy tongue-in-cheek paranormal stories, then this book isn’t for you.  However, if you have a sense of humor about the paranormal then get ready for funny (and occasionally gory) romp in the woods with Dallas, Lois and Stanley.

Dallas, the main character, is the Hero of Trappersville after he staked a vampire (Wisconsin Vamp) and ‘saved the town’ from a vampire outbreak.  He might have remained a hero if it weren’t for a pesky tick that happened to bite a werewolf, and then bit him.  His loyal friend Stanley apparently tumbled to the fact that he was a werewolf, but it took a while for him to figure it out.  By the time he did it was a little late.  He had joined a Society of paranormal creature hunters, and as you may imagine the tables were turned on him.

The story takes on a peculiar and hilarious turn when the girlfriend of the ‘dead’ vampire, Lois, becomes a witch.  I don’t want to spoil the story, but you should know it has to do with using a beer can in a totally new way.  This part of the story had me choking on my morning coffee, laughing out loud!

If you enjoy books by Charlaine Harris and Janet Evanovich, this paranormal series may tickle your funny bone.  I can’t wait to see if there is a book 3, and what insect may be at the bottom of THAT story!

I gave this story 5 stars out of 5.

Scott Burtness, Author

I live in the Midwest with my wonderful wife, Liz, and our pitt-boxer mix, Frank. I’ve always enjoyed reading horror, sci-fi, thrillers, and comedic takes on all three genres. For me, reading is a fun escape, a chance to live vicariously through someone else’s adventures. I decided to start writing with the hope of entertaining readers like myself.

I’m also usually hanging around karaoke bars and bowling alleys in the Midwest. Come visit!
