After the death of her lover, Jake, Talulla Demetriou is the last living werewolf. And she's on the run. Pregnant, grieving, and with only her human familiar Cloquet helping her keep one step ahead of the Hunt, Talulla flees to a remote Alaskan lodge to have her child in secret. The birth leaves her ravaged, but with her infant son in her arms it looks as if the worst is over. Until the door bursts open - and she discovers that the worst is only just beginning... Talulla is plunged into a race against time to save her son. Tormented by guilt and fuelled by rage, she is pursued by deadly forces - from a psychotic new WOCOP leader to blood-drinking religious fanatics and (rumour has it) the oldest living vampire on earth.
Hopeless odds. Unless, of course, a mother's love for her child turns out to be the deadliest force of all...

A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone. That's why I read so much.
Not sure how this novel would work if you hadn't read (or listened to) the first, "The Last Werewolf", but I really enjoyed it, and am looking forward to the next!
Don't listen to this or read this review, until you've heard the first one, "The Last Werewolf".
Talulla is ready to give birth, but is still grieving, in fact she doesn't feel like she can bond with her child once it arrives. The vampires are still looking for her and it's almost a full moon.
