The Wolf, a General story | SparkaTale

The Wolf

By: Niles Flynn

Status: In Progress

Summary:

'Wolf', that's what Jo calls her, her other half. She hides it away behind a mask, just like everyone else, hiding away their darkest secrets. The problem is, Jo is the mask, and Wolf is getting stronger... Agent Josephine Wulffe is the FBI's top criminal profiler. A genius, she graduated with a general PhD at 22, continuing on to work with the FBI homicide unit for the next four years. Then the team meets the deadliest serial killer yet, The Lost Amissas Butcher, and Jo's world falls apart, with Wolf waiting for her on the edge of insanity. Note: Just a warning but this seems longer than it really is. It is written in a free-verse poetry format. And for anyone wondering where Wolf came from, (kind of) the first poems of the in progress sequel The Monster are a bit of a creation story.

    All I can say is wow. It is very well written, and if you haven't read this yet, you should. The suspense is amazing, and I couldn't stop reading. Good job!

    Excellent opportunity to look into the world of insanity. Well written and sure did hold my interest. Hope the author writes a sequel.

    This book was fantastic. I loved the ominous flow that carried along the quick pace in the columns. The form of writing was just plain cool. I can't wait for the sequel.

    I really don't know what to say. This is amazing. It's thought provoking and I really think the idea of Wolf is amazing. I really enjoyed the way it was written. It's just magnificent over all. I'm sorry I'm not very good at writing reviews. I'm not eloquent, but this story is wonderful.

    Incredible, I must say. I love how the story is told through free-verse poetry. It drags _so_ much less than ordinary novel-format writing. The interaction between Wolf and Josephine is just ingenious, and truly underscores her insanity. Well written, compelling, and really strikes a chord on the meaning of sanity and being a human or a monster. Excellent!

    The Dream

    Great start. However, if this is a dream and an introduction to the book, I would consider rephrasing this chapter. 

    You said "I remember" quite a bit. On one hand, it is a fantastic tool, but there isn't enough meat between the "remembering" thus, they are too close in proximity. 

    You should bring the reader in closer with these heart stopping memories your main character has by appealing to our sense. 

    The Wolf part was good, I see what you're trying to do. I think you should add just a teeeeeennnnssy bit more about Wolf so we as readers can get start to feel something about Wolf...otherwise it just feels like a blank word that is supposed to be a person. 

    On a happier note! Love, love LOVE your sentence structure to have for dramatic effect. :) The clip, short VERY small paragraphs add to the drama that I see you are striving for! GOOD!!!  Ooooh add more periods towards the end, before you mention Wolf....that'd be cool. 

    All in all, great start...looking forward to reading the rest!
