The reason why is Logan is an "enigmologist"--an investigator who specializes in analyzing phenomena that have no obvious explanation--fancy n [...]

    2. For all my reviews, visit my blog at ladyjbookishnookMy ReviewWhat a great book!! The main character is Jeremy Logan, a scholar and professor of history at Yale. Jeremy is working on a written study of heresy in the Middle Ages and decides to go to a mountain lodge called Cloudwater in the heart of Adirondack State Park to complete it.

    3. FULL WOLF MOON, by Lincoln Child, is the fifth book in the Jeremy Logan series. Jeremy Logan is trying to take a break from his sideline of "enigmalogist", and get back to writing his paper at the Cloudwater Writer's retreat in the Adirondacks. Of course, his "other abilities" are called upon when his college friend, now a Lieutenant Ranger for the NY Department of Forest Protection, Randall Jessup, brings a case to his attention.". . . legends--no matter how outlandish they sound--have a ground [...]

    4. One of his worst. Boring and predictable.This book was sadly disappointing.While I used to enjoy the Preston and Child stories on the adventures of Agent Pendergast, their creativity of late seems to be on the wan.Unfortunately this is true for Lincoln Child's solo stories. Yes, the story is well written, but it's like receiving a well knitted ugly Christmas sweater.You can appreciate the quality of the construction but the product itself is not something you enjoy.

    5. Let me first begin by saying that I am a huge fan of Lincoln Child's solo novels. Maybe even more so than the Pendergast series that he co-authors with, Douglas Preston. I have read every Jeremy Logan book in the series up to this point, and I love how each novel is a different adventure, set in an even more exotic setting than the last.Jeremy Logan has been to just about the craziest places on earth that you could imagine. Whether it's at the bottom of the ocean, Alaska's remote Federal Wildlif [...]

    6. Review of FULL WOLF MOON by Lincoln ChildSuspension of disbelief provides strong tension throughout as our protagonist himself struggles with his intent to maintain an open mind. Dr. Jeremy Logan, Yale Professor of History, is by avocation (and a growing reputation), an "enigmalogist,' an individual who studies and investigates odd phenomena without an apparent cause. For example, Dr. Logan has investigated "Nessie," Scotland's Loch Ness Monster. When the novel commences, he is ensconcing himsel [...]

    7. Full Wolf Moon starts off with a gruesome and mysterious attack, death by mauling, that has the investigators stymied. These attacks are nothing like they have ever seen and seem to be occurring in relation with the full moon. At the start these attacks are thought to be caused by a rouge bear or wolf. Mysteriously though, the true culprit can’t seem to be identified. There is just something off about the bodies that they find. Nothing seems to add up. The locals start whispering about superst [...]

    8. First off, I am a HUGE fan of Lincoln Child, who often writes with Douglas Preston. Books by the pair, or books each has written alone are (almost) always added to my fav. list here on . I have re-read many a book by them, but having said thatThis book was a huge disappointment. Formulaic, trope-laden, and seemingly, written in a rush. If I had to read about the 'bloated moon' one more timed then I did, near the end. Not that 'bloated' isn't a good description for a huge full moon, but please, t [...]

    9. A fast-paced, creepy read. It reminded me of one of the better "monster of the week" X-Files episodes, with a little influence from Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror. Lots of fun, if you're in the mood for a Creature Feature.

    10. Liked the bookYou need to be a science fiction addict to read this, it is outside of normal mystery. But Lincoln is writing on the edge of reality. Really liked the book.

    11. It is always fun for this reader to spend a few hours reading and enjoying Mr Child's imagination. His books so often offer that bit of scary escapism that is sometimes not very literary, but a break from all those books that foster so much thinking. In this novel, he conjures up the old tale of werewolves and presents a case for the legend that surrounds their myth. Jeremy Logan, enigmologist is hot on the trail trying to investigate a spate of vicious killings occurring in the Adirondack Mount [...]

    12. Another great installment in the Jeremy Logan series. This one kept me reading way into the night, then up early to finish it!My thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and the author for the opportunity to read this book.

    13. I believe I would call this book a "near werewolf" tale. The story is written in a more relaxed style than the usual offerings from this author it may not be everyone's "cuppa tea". I even found myself wanting the story to speed up. The book is well written and the characters are interesting but you have to spend some time getting to know them. Some of the ideas that the "research expert" had in his ever-so-secret lab was a bit far fetched but then so was a lot of the story to begin with. You ju [...]

    14. it's well past my bedtime and it's a workday tomorrow;gotta go catch me some z'si don't think it's a full moon tonight

    15. This is the third Jeremy Logan novel I have read and I find myself enjoying them even more than the Penderghast series. I highly enjoy books with a wilderness setting and I definitely recommend this one.

    16. 2.5Don't go out tonightReasonably entertaining, but thoroughly preposterous beach read. I like our hero, the renowned "enigmologist" and I'm thinking I might share his empathic precognition just a teensy bit because my predictions of which expendable character is dispatched in some escalatingly gruesome way often turns out to be eerily prescient. I may need to buy myself a snazzy vintage car and hang up a shingle.

    17. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.My actual rating was a 3.5/5 starsJeremy Logan has decided to visit the infamous Cloudwater, an artist's retreat where writers, artists, and musicians go to do their work in seclusion. He checks in with every intention of finishing his monologue on heresy in the Middle Ages, but things don't go as planned. There have been vicious and gruesome murders in the Adirondacks, close to Desolation Mountain a [...]

    18. Well, with a title like that, you expect werewolves.Enigmatologist Jeremy Logan travels to a writers’ retreat in the Adirondacks to get a book written. But mystery finds him when an old friend asks him to look into a series of murders in which the victims were savagely torn apart, as if by some wild animal. And the killings coincide with the full moonDespite this not being the first Logan book, it stands pretty well on its own. He’s a recurring protagonist, but that's about it. There aren't [...]

    19. I thought this latest novel by Lincoln Child is one of his best to date. It takes place in a desolate part of the Adirondacks where Jeremy Logan, a researcher of strange and enigmatic events, goes to finish his monograph on heresy in the Middle Ages. When he arrives at the place he is staying, he is met by an old college friend, Randall Jessup, who is currently a forest ranger in the area. Jessup wants to pick Jeremy's brain and perhaps engage his assistance in finding out exactly what has been [...]

    20. This was just ok. Child has written a number of stand alones that I've enjoyed, and although the first part of this was interesting and suspenseful, the last section devolved into melodrama. The "creature" was a bit too easy to figure out and the guilty party was telegraphed with some hackneyed monster movie plotting. As a hero, Logan has been morewell, heroic in other novels. In this one he gets caught flat-footed and unprepared several times and frankly, acts pretty stupidly. This was a fine f [...]

    21. Thanks to netgalley for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.This is the first time I've read a book by this author and about Jeremy Logan. I really enjoyed it! It reminded me of a non supernatural Dean Koontz book. It was an interesting story, I won't disclose details, as the book should be read. I will say that I am looking forward to another Jeremy Logan installment!

    22. Lincoln Child, along with his partner in crime Douglas Preston, has a pretty good gig going for them. They specialize in the not-so-supernatural thriller. In most cases , and especially with the Pendergrast series, this involves a mystery of seemingly supernatural origins but ends up being something from the natural, albeit the very imaginative and slightly farfetched natural. These Scooby-doo books, as I irrelevantly like to call them, are fun to read but I tend to go more for the supernatural [...]

    23. I sure enjoyed this different werewolf book. It has a person who is somewhat like a wolf due to genetics and a "mad scientist". It was a little scary for me and I did not want to put it down. I will have to get more of his books. One of the GREAT things is no bad language. Its so hard to find a scary book these days that is clean!

    24. I like the Jeremy Logan novels. I like the way the author takes the supernatural and debunks with science. Good action and mystery.

    25. Another expertly crafted thriller from Child, featuring enigmalogist Jeremy Logan. In Full Wolf Moon, Logan is trying to solve a vicious murder perpetrated bymething. Well-written and suspenseful, and scientifically interesting as well.

    26. Full Wolf Moon will have you looking over your shoulder and jumping at every little sound if you're reading it in the woods perhaps in a cabin! I always enjoy when an author I've read and followed for nearly two decades makes a foray into writing about something that is a bit out of their norm. Lincoln Child must have written this in a fevered writing spell. It's so dang fast paced that the reader cannot catch a breath before a whole new direction is taken! I absolutely loved this story! It remi [...]

    27. Scrappymags 3-word review: A little freakyGenre: Mystery/horror, suspenseShortest summary ever: Something is attacking wayward hikers in the Adirondack Mountains. Guess what is might be? Jeremy Logan, an “enigmologist” (my new career – someone who studies the unexplainable) happens to be in the area where his old college buddy works and thus is dragged into the fray. What’s good under the hood: I was adequately freaked out in places since I have hiked with my crazy-as-all-get-out hiker b [...]

    28. Have you ever wondered about the link between the words lunar and lunacy? There is a connection. In the past, strange things happened around the full moon (part of the basis for the word lunatic) and people I've known who work in hospitals say the time around the full moon is always busier in the ER than the rest of the month. It's because of these things that I can totally see the events in this book happening.I've read many Lincoln Child books, those he wrote alone and with Douglas Preston, an [...]

    29. Tainted blood and the lunar effectI like this Jeremy Logan series written by Lincoln Child - I've read a couple other of the now five books in the series. I also like the Pendergast series that he co-writes with author Douglas Preston.Dr. Jeremy Logan is a scholar/historian and a Professor of History at Yale that has come to Cloudwater in the Adirondacks as an artist-in-residence. He comes to this retreat to hopefully finish a monograph on heresy in the Middle Ages that he's worked on for years. [...]

    30. This book starts off very slow and doesn't really pick up until we're halfway through it. Jeremy Logan is headed to an artist colony in the Adirondacks to write a book. While there, an old friend asks him to take a look into some strange attacks on hikers. Logan asks around about the murders but doesn't really find out much and goes back to writing his book. Then during the next full moon there's another murder and the plot begins to FINALLY gain some momentum. From this point on, the book is mo [...]
