Review & Giveaway: Northwoods Wolfman by Scott Burtness

Northwoods Wolfman
by Scott Burtness


GENRE: Horror-Comedy



When Dallas, the self-proclaimed Hero of Trappersville, is recruited by an ancient order of monster hunters, he’s more than happy to sign up. The group’s leader, Colton, is solid as an oak. Randall ain’t half bad, despite his tendency to whine. The whip-smart, beautiful, and totally badass Aletia is whip-smart, beautiful, and totally badass. Under their guidance, Dallas learns everything there is to know about hunting monsters (or close enough) and pledges to keep his friends safe.

Now there’s a werewolf in town, and Dallas and Stanley are on the case. As far as Dallas is concerned, monsters are monsters, and they have no place in Wisconsin.

Or do they? When an unexpected discovery and an unlikely reunion turn his world upside down, Dallas realizes he may not get to choose which side he’s on.

My Review:

I wanted to read a light and funny story, the plot and the cover of this book seemed the right choice. And I was right. This book is hilarious, fun but non-trivial with the really whimsical and fun characters
Dallas is living his moment of glory, is the hero of Trappersville for killing a vampire. It is proposed to him to adhere to a special company for hunting monsters. This time he must save the city from a werewolf.
Despite being the second book of the series can be read as a standalone, I had no problems.
This is fast-paced, witty and fantastically fun romance, there is humor, hunting monsters, a lot of fun twists. There are scenes in which it is impossible not to laugh out loud. How can you not love a book with witches, werewolves, vampires, and so clever humor?
If you are looking for a cute and funny book then you need to read this one.



Randall had whistled through his teeth when Dallas answered the door.

“You look like Batman and Tim the Tool Guy’s D.I.Y. lovechild,” he chuckled. “What are you planning to do with all that stuff?”

The look Dallas gave Randall was sympathetic.

“I know you been doing this for a little while, but I can see why Colton’s looking for new help. You gotta be prepared, right? Covert ops? Surgical strike? Get in, get out, get drunk, get laid, that’s how Big D rolls. You think I’m diving into a nest of, a nest of, um. You know, a nest of… Say, what are we hunting, anyway?”

“Boo hag.”


“No, we’re hunting a boo hag.”

“Doo rag?”

“No, boo hag, you twit. Kinda like a vampire, but they eat life force from breath, not blood. Sometimes mistaken for skin walkers since they don’t have skin of their own and are fond of taking someone else’s to wear for a bit.”

Dallas nodded authoritatively. “Well, that just proves my point. You think I’m diving into a nest of boo hags with nothing but my sunny disposition?”
