"definitely a series I am seriously going to follow"
Sophie Garou has been taming her inner beast for years.
With the use of Wolfsbane tea she keeps herself from
changing into a werewolf and manages to lead a nearly
normal life. Well that is if you don't count having to
shave yourself every 2 hours. Life however isn't going to
stay normal for long. With an email from the Houston
werewolf pack with the message which basically says 'join
us or die' and strange werewolves turning up in her
apartment at all hours, it is becoming clear to her that
she is no longer alone.
Things would be much easier to keep under control if
everyone knew about Sophie's werewolf. Hiding it from her
boyfriend Heath, her friend Lindsay and the general
population is hard work. Especially now she is partner in
the firm and Heath was seen leaving a jewelry store with
a ring box. Sophie has to start asking herself what she
wants. Does she need a pack? Does she want Heath or one of
the other amazingly gorgeous guys who are practically
throwing themselves at her.
So what will Sophie do? Can she keep her lone wolf status
or will she have to leave the city she has lived in for 20
years? Can she do what the Houston pack have asked of her?
Can she keep deceiving her friends? With so much going on
in Sophie's life it is no wonder she doesn't realise that
someone is already slowly killing her.
Finally book two in Tales of an Urban Werewolf! I needed at
least a few chapters to get back into Sophie's world and
remember what happened last time in Howling at the Moon.
This second part in the series was just as good, if not
better than book one and it is definitely a series I am
seriously going to follow. I only hope that there isn't
such a long wait until book three hits the shelves!
Sophie is fun, independent and furry! She is your everyday
career woman who has a hair problem and just wants to live
her life. The hits keep coming and she keeps fighting back
and although she is obviously in need of some time to sort
out her relationship problems, she knows what she wants. If
you like werewolves, strong female characters and some
humour then this is worth your time. Karen MacInerery
smells like MaryJanice Davidson and Carrie Vaughn but still
manages to have a unique scent.
