Unleashed Fiction Review

Posted on April 9, 2008 by Flames


Available at Amazon.com

Kristopher Reisz’s Unleashed sheds light on the steel city of Birmingham, with its cultural history and blue-collar community. Daniel Morning’s parents are far from rich: they struggle to make ends meet whilst doing everything they can to insure that Daniel and his brothers have a better future…even if it means cheating to get into an Ivy League college.

But Daniel needs to break out from the life he thinks he has no say in. Misty provides the opportunity: she and her friends have discovered a fungus that allows them to become werewolves. But rather than writing a tale of drug addiction, the author takes a more interesting route. In wolf form, the teens experience total freedom, and it affects their psychology. Soon they plot revenge on the people who’ve oppressed them one way or another. But is it really worth fighting fire with fire? And what happens when things go too far?

This is not a fun read, but it’s one of those books that really make you think…and without your brain hurting. What’s worth standing up for, and how would you do that? Would you be willing to accept the price of freedom?

This is one trip you should really take.
