Ken Keith Chartrand about this book: "The Lupine Effect" features: A man, his fiancee, his family, a wolf pack, a werewolf, a vampire, a witch, love and adventure! A young rancher goes into the wilderness to hunt what ever killed his baby sister's pony. He wakes up there after a tragedy and finds that he is no longer human. The story is about how he knows he is human and how he wants to become normal again.
I was inspired to write a book where the werewolf is not controlled by a vampire. I think the primary readers will be young adults to the general adult readership. The title was not too hard to come up with... I read that the word Lupine (pronounced loo-pine) also meant 'wolf-like' 'ravenous'. I learned a lot about the wolf by doing the research. There is a dark side to us as well as a light side. Also please consider the conservation of the wolf which in some places is over hunted and trapped for fur.

A look at what a werewolf really is in man's mind
Although there is a lot of blood and violence when the werewolf side of the main character is on a rampage, there are respites within the story. The main character's longing and search for his human self and for the love of his life is intriguing though one senses that that is his goal. All around it is basically a love story. I found relief in the proverbial happy ending. [by Maryanne Holt]
