Tallula Rising

book | 2012
UK & Comm → Canongate Books

Talulla Demetriou is the last living werewolf. And she is pregnant. Pursued by enemies and racked by the need to kill, she flees to a remote Alaskan hunting lodge to have her child in secret. There, with her infant son in her arms, it looks as if the worst is over.

Until the door bursts open - and she discovers that the worst is only just beginning...

Talulla is plunged into a race against time to save her son. Tormented by guilt and fuelled by rage, she is pursued by deadly forces - including (rumour has it) the oldest living vampire on earth. Hopeless odds. Unless, of course, a mother's love for her child turns out to be the deadliest force of all.

Tallula Rising

Duncan’s throbbing, fornication-crazy plot defies easy encapsulation, but is best described as a gleeful three-way between Raymond Chandler’s entire oeuvre, Anne Rice’s vampire novels and Umberto Eco’s “Foucault’s Pendulum.” Proust, as usual, is watching from the corner.

Duncan's writing does more than transcend genre fiction: it creeps up on it in the dead of night, rips out its heart, then eats it.
