  • This was pretty bad. First, it's just not interesting to have a bare-bones revenge story. The ex-husband and demented girlfriend wanting to pursue the ex-wife to take revenge. The book shifts points of view between the revenge-seeking couple and Karen, which gets old. The premise is generic and the villains downright cheesy and unconvincing. Marcia's speech is especially awful. It got old seeing her lead reluctant Roy around by the wolf hairs. The ending doesn't make sense - you'd think she woul [...]


  • A great sequel to The Howling! First published in 1979, it features characters from the the first book and picks up the story three years on.I liked the small town setting in The Howling whereas the sequel features a number of different locations as the story progresses. It addresses the impact of the events in the first book and how life has changed for the characters. I don't want to spoil any reading of either book so I will just say it is a great sequel that expands the story.The book reinfo [...]


  • Great second entry in the series! I thought that in the interest of avoiding spoilers, I'd stay clear of mentioning plot and characters, but the story follows true and kind of logical to the first book. At the same time this is what a sequel should be like I think, not cut off at a page count, but could easily have been chosen to be one long book instead, but a revisit with some intervening time and things that has happened that are related interwoven in the story. Oh, just read it, you'll see w [...]


  • Double tapBy now, Karyn and Chris should be cutting off heads just to be sure. Did they? Read it & found out! Or proceed on to book 3.


  • 2.5 - 3 Stars maybe.This was definitely not as good as the first book. As Karen realizes the wolves of her former husband and his lover; are now stalking/terrorizing her; she attempts to gather strength and reinforcements to fight themokay, not really, but it sounded good. We continue to deal with Karen and her "issues." Her anxiety and poor-pathetic-woman persona, irritated me to no end. Her anxiety is warranted, but continuing to allow others to talk for her and treat her as helpless; was exha [...]


  • While I enjoyed the first novel, I found myself somewhat disappointed with this second installment, not in the story itself, but with the main characters Karyn and Roy. Although I was glad she was able to rebuild her life after the events of the first novel, she still felt weak to me. Her hyper damsel in distress behavior very off-putting to the point that I wanted her to be eaten by the werewolves. Roy was no better, not only did he survive the fire, but instead of trying to find Karyn, because [...]


  • 3 1/2 stars. Clearly, the animosity doesn't end with the divorce.Karyn, the much put upon wife in The Howling I, has remarried (even though her husband is not dead---although she doesn't know it) and trying to move on with her life. Where during the first book she was constantly haunted by memories and flashbacks of her rape, in this book she is constantly haunted by memories and flashbacks of being attacked by werewolves. She just can't win, apparently, and will not ever consider the possibilit [...]


  • An entertaining but perfunctory sequel. Still, it's leaps and bounds better than the movie THE HOWLING II: YOUR SISTER IS A WEREWOLF.The book opens with the werewolf survivors from the first novel hunting down Karyn Whats-her-name for a little revenge. You know, maybe kill her new family and then torture her to death. The werewolves track her all the way to Mexico (it's never explained how they are able to do this), where the stage is set for a final confrontation.I like the premise, and the Mex [...]


  • It is three years after the incident at Drago which served as the climax to “The Howling”. Karyn Beatty - now Richter - is trying to make a new life for herself in Seattle with her husband David and young stepson Joey. She’s still haunted by memories of what happened though and these are compounded when she sees her believed-dead husband Roy in a shopping mall, then someone who looks a lot like Marcia Lura. Not wanting to put her family at risk, she tracks down Chris Halloran (from the fir [...]


  • Not really getting into this book. Is Karyn not capable of feeling any emotions besides fear? What about grief for what she lost, happiness to have come so far and survived, anger, or a mix of conflicted emotions, something besides only fear. I’d be content with even some vengeance - overgrown dog hunt anyone? Maybe that comes out in later chapters. I haven’t gotten far in the book at all, because seriously Roy and Marcia are detestable characters! Where is Selene when you need her!?!



  • Another great werewolf tale. Some good suspense and gore / violent scenes alongside an interesting continuation from the first book. A satisfying ending too :)



  • Rating: 7/10Pages: 284This book literally picks up right where the first book left off. The characters are more fleshed out. However, I didn't understand Marcia's drive to destroy Karyn, other than jealousy. It was the one fluke in the story. However, It was a good ending for some of the original characters.I loved the build up, and how the canine relationships keep going and are vicious. This is definitely a Part Two of a trilogy. But it is a fun read. Location: Kindle


  • Not a big fan of the type of character Marcia was, which is pretty much the catalyst of this book. I feel like it's lazy writing. Pretty much all of the characters were one dimensional which is okay sometimes in a horror novel because it lends to the mystery of what is going on. In this case we already know about werewolves, there's no surprise, no mystery. Not sure I'll be starting the 3rd.


  • Good tale with cardboard charactersI liked this story, but i loved the first one. The biggest drawback was how flimsy the characterization was in this one. Aside from the main character, everyone else seemed stock.


  • This was a decent second book. An easy read. Not too scary, but still fast paced if not a bit on the simple side.


  • Set some time after the events of the original, Howling 2 revisits our main protagonist, Karyn, as she tries to start a new life away from the horrors of Drago. Karyn hasn't had it easy since werewolves ate her dog, best mate and turned her former husband, Roy, into one of their own. She suffers from cynophobia (an abnormal fear of dogs) and despite being remarried and surrounded by those that have her best interests at heart, no one really believes she survived an attack by werewolves.So, as Ka [...]


  • now if you like the first HOWLING you will definitely like this one and it gives the ending of karyn, roy, and Marcia. karyn tries to get on with her life in the second novel. its been three years. she has remarried and has a young stepson. but she cant' get over what horrendously happened to her three years before , she still has nightmares and constant fear. of course no one believes what happened in drago she is under psychiatric outpatient care for what the world believes is all in her head. [...]


  • This was bad. I just read a book that features a woman with a seemingly unending amount of money travel all over the country to avoid these werewolves that are just determined to the max to follow her everywhere and sort of make an attempt at making her life miserable. I will say this the book was original in the sense that the way people handled the things that happened are unlike anything I've ever seen or read before in the sense that they have such dumb reactions to things I felt like I was [...]


  • Having recently read the first book of this werewolf trilogy, and finding it better than expected, I felt compelled to read the follow-up. This one has a rapidly moving plot that held my interest even though most of it followed a fairly predictable course. The background "color" is nicely dated with mid to late 1970's pop culture references (Kojak, Clint Eastwood movies, Charlie's Angels, etc.). The author has had some successful Hollywood screenwriting experiences, and I feel that really shows [...]


  • I was disappointed in this sequel to the excellent Howling. The not quite killing Marcia with the silver bullet but giving her a silver streak in her hair so she was alive but not able to change into her wolf form didn't quite seem believable to me. Another element that didn't work was the gypsies 'working for the wolves' which seemed to be copied straight from vampire novels where the gypsies are in thrall to their vampire lord. The same relationship was implied here but not explained and since [...]


  • While not as strong as the first novel, the second book in the Howling trilogy finds Karyn newly remarried a few years after events in the previous story, but still haunted by the horrord in therapy for it. Her new husband is supportive, to a point, but doesn't believe her story, and in fact, behaves rather uncharacteristically later in the book. As does a few other characters, which is one of this book's flaws. Karyn's seemingly idyllic new life is turned upside down when her new family is thre [...]


  • Gary Brandner's sequel to his seminal werewolf novel is an entertaining read, but not quite up to the standard of the previous entry. Unfortunately, the first half drags quite a bit, as if it was written in a rush. It becomes far more exciting as the story advances though, culminating in a third act that moves a lot quicker and has more happening. The book's most shining moments are when Brandner's signature cinematic prose is on display. He was a master at giving the reader just enough to paint [...]


  • Not quite as good as the first one, and some of the characters (Karyn's new husband, Chris' girlfriend) didn't feel fully formed, but once again Brandner did a good job of building up to the conclusion.My chief complaint is the end. Without going into spoiler territory, I just wish Karyn was much less of a damsel in distress and more of a heroine. She needs to solve her own problems.Still, all in all, one of the better werewolf books I've read. Especially loved all the references to late 70s lif [...]


  • this installment was slightly better than the first one (though much of my opinion on that may have to do with having seen the film do many times that it had been lacking suspense). that said, the characters are not any better drawn or fleshed out. there is far too much "oh my god am I going crazy" at the beginning and then too much "no one will believe the truth" later on. in all I think most of my objections come down to not liking Karyn and her incessant need to find a man to save herling 2, [...]


  • The Howling 2 is a great novel, however I enjoyed the first on a completely different level. The Howling was an intense off in the woods being stalked in the night horror, while The Howling 2 is more of an action/adventure story. I'm not saying this makes the novel bad in any way, I am just saying that I missed the eerie feel presented by the first. The story line is great and I couldn't stop reading until I had finished it. I recommend this to werewolf fans and those who enjoy a good chase and [...]


  • This book is a great follow-up.Emotionally damaged Karyn is trying to get her life back on track after the horror of Drago. What she soon finds out is that not all the evil from Drago perished as she had hoped, but instead are looking for revenge.I really enjoyed this book and it was a fast and easy read. I was a bit annoyed in the beginning by how Karyn's mental state was written. I think in the first book also this is true, it was just a bit overly done. Even with that being said, I really enj [...]


  • As much as the first book was comparable to a low budget movie equivalent, so is The Howling 2 compared to a low budget movie sequel. It was OK, but felt like part of a bigger picture. You know how some books start strong, lose it in the middle and then pick up toward the end? The middle was the best part, as that was where the plot and character seemed to be. The beginning and end just kind of felt a little rushed. Overall though, if you enjoyed the first Howling book you're going to want to re [...]


  • Gah, this book failed to deliver a statisfying ending. The characters were limp, the situations too unbelievable despite being a fantasy/horror. I didn't mind the main characters so much, thought I thought Karyn could have been better developed, and the plot itself followed much the same route, being slightly more contrived than I would like. However, it is the writing itself which saves this novel from the dreaded one star review, as the prose is alive with strong verbs, imagery.
