Terry Silverman is a thirteen-year-old orphaned vegetarian vampire who drinks tomato juice instead of blood. A lonely outsider, he attends Grimerth School for Monsters, but learns about a spate of murders in the neighbouring town of Grimdale after it was terrorised by a demonic wolf. One moonlit night, a darker side of Terry is unleashed as he discovers he is part werewolf, and that his childhood is beset with secrets, lies and betrayal. Realising he is now a werewolf-vampire hybrid, can Terry use his inner beast to slay the infamous Demon Wolf and save the inhabitants of Grimdale?
Just from reading the premise of Terry Silverman and the Demon Wolf, I knew the story would have a unique plot line. The tale did not disappoint. I found Terry Silverman and the Demon Wolf to be a fun, quirky read. Featuring a diverse cast of characters, the story was an action-packed adventure right from the start. The word-building was gradual as readers learned about major reveals along with Terry.
I adore character-driven stories and for this book, the characters were the reason why the tale was such an enjoyable read. Not only was it easy to relate to Terry’s struggles, but you were also able to watch him grow from his experiences. Although I liked reading the story from Terry’s perspective, my favorite character had to be Fergus Gravestone. Who doesn’t love a sarcastic, talking skeleton? If Vayani was to continue writing stories in this world, then I would like to make a recommendation: I would love to read a tale from Fergus’s perspective.
For those looking for a fun, non-scary read for the spooky season, you should check out Terry Silverman and the Demon Wolf. The story can easily be read in one setting!
