Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this thrilling new novel from the author of Industrial Magic, a pregnant werewolf may have unwittingly unleashed Jack the Ripper on twenty-first-century — and become his next target.

Ever since she discovered she's pregnant, Elena Michaels has been on edge. After all, she's never heard of another living female werewolf, let alone one who's given birth. But thankfully, her expertise is needed to retrieve a stolen letter allegedly written by Jack the Ripper. As a distraction, the job seems simple enough — only the letter contains a portal to Victorian London's underworld, which Elena inadvertently triggers — unleashing a vicious killer and a pair of zombie thugs.

Now Elena must find a way to seal the portal before the unwelcome visitors get what they're looking for — which, for some unknown reason, is Elena.

Synopsis:

In this thrilling new novel in the Women of the Otherworld series, a pregnant werewolf may have unwittingly unleashed Jack the Ripper on 21st-century London---and may become his next target. Original.

Barbara Sharpe, April 15, 2008 (view all comments by Barbara Sharpe)
Elena is the only female werewolf. Werewolves are either born with the gene – and it’s only passed to boys – or bitten and women usually die. Except Elena. Elena was Bitten but she lived.
The pregnancy is troubling – there hasn’t been a werewolf pregnancy so no one knows what to expect. It would be an understatement to say she was bored witless, so when something comes up that requires her expertise – and seems harmless – she jumps at it.

Of course, it isn’t harmless. Elena inadvertently opens a time portal and a serial killer and 2 zombies are loose in Toronto. Elena, Clay and Jeremy stay in Toronto to try to send the serial killer and his zombies back. Along the way, they ask Zoe, a vampire, and Jaime, the necromancer, for help. For some reason, the serial killer and his zombies are targeting Elena specifically. The Pack and its friends have to find out why and what to do to close the time portal.

The ending is nearly saccharine but the reader – at least this reader – can’t help but cheer for Elena and Clay.
