151) Leader of the Pack by Karen MacInerney

Sophie is beautiful, clever and has a successful career. She also has a gorgeous wealthy boyfriend but there is one thing that doesn't really fit into her life. You see Sophie is a werewolf. A hairy, shave your legs twice a day, howling at the moon werewolf.

Her mother has done a great job bringing up Sophie, has supported her completely and even paid for all those razors she needed while growing up. So when Sophie's father turns up she isn't the least bit interested in meeting him. Why should she want to meet a man she has never met and abandoned her and her mum when she was only a baby?

Then her father, Luc, gets accused of murder by the Houston pack. Locked up and no chance of a fair trial, Sophie feels she needs to do something to help him. Even with some unexpected help from a few people she didn't think would get involved and the offer of assistance from a demon. The odds are not looking good for her father and if certain people of the werewolf community have their way, things won't be good for Sophie either.

The third book in the Tales of an Urban Werewolf series was just as good as the previous two books. With the feisty, independent and growling Sophie taking the lead the reader is in good hands all the way through the book. Some new revelations, expansion on the werewolf community and some big life changes see Sophie through this new story. Which all added up to making this a book I couldn't put down.

This is definitely one of my favourite werewolf series and I am hoping there will be more. I don't want to give anything away but I can tell you that I really need to know what happens next. Anyone else reading this will also be left wanting to know how things will develop. After all the title says it all.

If you haven't already met Sophie before then get to know her in 'Howling at the Moon' and then move on to 'On the Prowl' before starting this third book.
