like most sequals, not as good.
following Tallula after Jakes death is a good idea, but it lacks Jake's character and turn of phrase that makes the first book so good. the performance is good but not special enough to make up for the lack of action and suspense.

Not rising but descending into mediocrity.
If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
People who appreciate poor B movie type fare.
What could Glen Duncan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Taken longer to get the characters somewhat more believable.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Penelope Rawlins?
What character would you cut from Talulla Rising?
Who would I keep is a better question.
Any additional comments?
The first book was interesting. By turns violent and crude but still feeling very much a fresh take on werewolves in the modern day. It felt like a book the author had wanted to write for a long time. This book feels like a sequel that was forced out of the author or one that was written by someone else. The heroine is not particularly likeable and characters from the first book are resurrected in unlikely ways. The character veers into ideas of feminism but then gets rescued by men all the time. At one point the heroine, with no appreciation of irony, saves herself with an eyebrow pencil. And if that isn't enough the author uses the deus ex machina to get the protagonist out of the scrapes they get into. Hopefully the third installment will eventually turn it around but the goodwill from the first book is thoroughly used up by this one.
