No Such Thing as Werewolves (Deathless #1) by Chris Fox

 WARNING: May Contain Werewolves.

A pyramid predating all known cultures appears without warning. Its discovery throws into question everything we know about the origins of mankind.

Inside lies incredible technology, proof of a culture far more advanced than our own. Something dark lurks within, eager to resume a war as old as mankind. When it is unleashed it heralds the end of our species’ reign.

A plague of werewolves spreads across the world. A sunspot larger than anything in recorded history begins to grow. Yet both pale in comparison to the true threat, the evil the werewolves were created to fight.

(Yes, it's Sara Squared's Hubby!) 
A team of private army special ops are sent to a secret location in South America and run into, literally, a super-science pyramid from the earth’s pre-history that appears out of nowhere.  A premier team of scientific specialists are flown into the remote location and attempt to make heads or tails out of the mysterious artifact.  What they find in the inner chamber changes their lives and the world forever.

Overall, I found No Such Thing as Werewolves to be a surprisingly good read.  As a huge Star Gate fan, there were several subtle hints in the first chapter or two that both intrigued me and kept me reading, but also made me a little nervous that instead of worms in people’s heads somehow there’d be a werewolf stuffed inside (I don’t even want to imagine the point of entry)!  As the plot and underlying creation myth developed, I found myself hooked.  In this exciting first book in the series, Chris Fox intricately weaves together ages old myths and current world affairs to create a capturing and action-packed story.  All told, I can’t wait for the sequel.     I give No Such Thing as Werewolves a solid 4 stars.
By day I am an iPhone developer architecting the app used to scope Stephen Colbert's ear. By night I am Batman. Ok maybe not. One can dream though, right?

I've been writing since I was six years old and started inflicting my work on others at age 18. By age 24 people stopped running away when I approached them with a new story and shortly thereafter I published my first one in the Rifter.

Wait you're still reading?

Ok, the facts I'm supposed to list in a bio. As of this writing I'm 38 years old and live just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in the beautiful town of Mill Valley. If you're unsure how to find it just follow the smell of self-entitlement. Once you see the teens driving Teslas you'll know you're in the right place.

I live in a tiny studio that I can cross in (literally) five steps and don't own an oven. But you know what? It's worth it. I love developing iPhone apps and if you want to work in San Francisco you accept that rent for a tiny place costs more than most people's mortgage.

If you and about 2 million other people start buying my books I promise to move out of Marin to a house in the redwoods up in Guerneville. No pressure. Wait that's a lie. Pressure.
