The first book in the Deathless series by Chris Fox.

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.


Tropes appearing in No Such Thing As Werewolves:

  • All Myths Are True: Werewolves are real, and the Egyptian Gods are real.
  • Ancient Artifact: The pyramid housing The Mother. It's so old even she doesn't know who built it.
  • Back from the Dead: If you're successfully infected by the virus, you'll die and then be resurrected.
  • Cool Shades: Yuri is always wearing a pair of mirrored shades. Justified since they double as an Augmented Reality HUD.
  • Made of Iron: Yuri gets pummeled more than anyone else, including having a leg torn off, and lives.
  • Mega-Corp: Mohn Corps has multiple shell corporations it controls.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Ahiga goes to a fight he knows he can't win so he can buy time for everyone else to escape.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Werewolves are caused by a genetically modified virus, and the powers granted differ based on the host's sex. They also come with a handy voice in your head.
