Elena Michaels is your regular twenty-first-century girl: self-assured, smart and fighting fit. She also just happens to be the only female werewolf in the world...
It has some good points. When she walks down a dark alleyway, she's the scary one. But now her Pack - the one she abandoned so that she could live a normal life - are in trouble, and they need her help. Is she willing to risk her life to help the ex-lover who betrayed her by turning her into a werewolf in the first place? And, more to the point, does she have a choice?

Life isn't easy when you're the only female werewolf in the world. Particularly when you had no say in becoming a werewolf in the first place. Elena was changed after being bitten by her ex-lover Clay - she had no idea he was a werewolf and was understandably upset when she discovered what he did to her. It's something that she doesn't think she'll ever be able to forgive him for. She left the Pack a year ago & has been trying to live her life as a human. She lives with her human boyfriend - which makes life interesting when she needs to change at least once a week and has to sneak out of the house to do it.
When she receives a call from Jeremy the Pack leader asking for her help the last thing she wants to do is return home. But the pack is in danger and she can't just turn her back on them. When she returns to the fold she finds out that a Mutt (a werewolf who isn't a member of the Pack) is killing humans. Not only that they are also trying to draw suspicion onto the Pack and implicate them in the murders. I don't want to give any of the story away but rest assured that things soon get a lot more complicated & there is plenty of action in the book!
Although I found the book a little slow to start once the story got going the pace really picked up fast & I couldn't stop turning the pages. The book is told from Elena's point of view & I loved her descriptions of the change and running with the Pack. I found Elena really easy to relate to, Clay was a perfect lovable bad boy & I liked the other Pack members. Overall I really loved this book & can't wait to continue with this series - I'm just pleased I have the next 3 books in my to-read pile.
