Definitely not boring, it's a life-changer for Sophie
on 30 July 2009
From the back 'On the outside, Sophie Garou is living every woman's dream: She has beauty, brains and a big-time position in Austin's most respected accounting firm(not to mention a very sexy, very successful new boyfriend). But there's one thing Sophie would rather keep under wraps: She's a werewolf. Sophie's life gets a little more hairy when her long-estranged father, Luc, arrives in the Live Music Capital to attend the werewolves' annual Howl and reconnect with his daughter. But Luc's plans fall apart after he's accused of murder and arrested by his archrival, Wolfgang, leader of the Houston pack (and one notoriously dirty dog). Wolfgang drools at the thought of Luc's impending execution, but Sophie won't let her father die without a fight. Determined to prove her innocence, she and her friends set out to find the real killer. Along the way, Sophie must deal with taboo attractions, Machiavellian intrigues, sinister agendas, and hair-raising betrayals.'
Well this is the third in the series and you can't say it was boring! This one turns Sophie's world completely upside down, no part of her life is left untouched. Saying that, both Heath and Lindsey's lives are changed too. Secrets are aired and declarations made, plus there is new love, old love and plenty of lust (as well as blood).
After Luc's ambitions for Sophie are realised, I'm not sure how Sophie is going to cope with her new life after this but I really really hope that Tom stays in Austin to help her after everything that takes place in this book, it was one of the few questions left unanswered by the end.
As for Mark, well we knew he was something completely different through his actions in ON THE PROWL so I guess it wasn't too big of a surprise when we find out what he is. I can't say anything more on him without revealing too much.
The only thing I was a bit unsure of was how well Heath took Sophie's being a werewolf and what he was willing to do for her and her father. I'm not sure whether he or Lindsey took things seriously enough until the end even though they were given a way out. You'll understand what I mean if you read it.
Overall the story was excellent and the ending was happy. It sort of reminds me of the progression in Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville series.
