Synopsis:

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.

What I thought:

Elena the werewolf is the main character in this one again! I love reading her stories, and so far this is the best one. She’s pregnant and as far as we know she’s the first female werewolf to actually do so. Because there’s no records, she doesn’t know what’s going to happen so she’s constantly worried about the baby, to the point where she has nightmares of losing it. Luckily she has her pack to help watch out for her, which is good because in this book there’s quite an adventure and it’s dangerous too. I found myself worrying during this for her as well, especially something happens to a certain male character later on.

It all starts because of a letter said to be written by Jack the Ripper, the From Hell letter. Things happen and zombies/diseases are set loose in Toronto. Elena seems to be their main target too. Some of my favourite side characters appear again (Jaime!) and we also meet some other interesting ones too like Zoe the vampire.

In any case this book is lots of fun, especially trying to find out who the portal that let loose certain disasters belongs to. If you’ve read the other books in the series, definitely continue with this one! As this series goes on it’s hard to talk about just the characters since we’ve met most of them, but I do love how the stories and action takes on a new angle each book and keeps me hooked!
