There are still some funny moments, but the series takes a slightly darker turn here. As a sequel that picks up a few months after the events of Knightley and Son, K-9 spends less time establishing interesting and quirky characters. Author Rohan Gavin concentrates more on the eerie atmospherics surrounding a werewolf mystery and on the friendship between Darkus and his canine companion, Wilbur.

The strong writing will keep readers absorbed, and the tight plotting and steady pace will keep the pages turning. The ending will not satisfy all but definitely will keep readers in high anticipation of the next planned installment.
