Leader of the Pack is the third installment in Karen MacInerney’s "Tales of an Urban Werewolf" series. The first two books released to rave reviews, and this latest entry holds to that tradition. MacInerney’s writing boasts savvy intellect and great humor which are beautifully utilized once more in Leader.

Sophie Garou has been an odd(fur)ball from day one. The illegitimate child of a psychic and a werewolf, she's always been a loner rather than a typical werewolf pack hound. She's more focused on her human life and career vs. her werewolf future, though she holds her own against other werewolves in a unique way despite not having been trained in the lifestyle. Oddities or not, Sophie has proven to be remarkable, and those qualities are her greatest asset when Daddy comes to call.

In the midst of the Howl—a large, weeklong werewolf gathering where brawling is forbidden—Sophie’s father is accused of murder and must stand trial for his life. Suddenly being an outsider may be more valuable than Sophie realized. With his death imminent in days, Sophie must rely on the aid of some good friends to save him. Unfortunately, Daddy’s plans for Sophie might mean the destruction of everything they have worked so diligently to accomplish and the loss of not only his life but Sophie’s, too.

MacInerney's werewolf world stands out from the pack with some new and welcome approaches to urban fantasy. The comical yet hypothetically “real” approach to werewolf qualities make much of the romanticism attributed to such creatures a little more opaque than typical modern authors seem to prefer.

Leader of the Pack lends just the perfect amount of drama and sexual tension to an already high-strung culmination of events - Sophie Garou and her charged love interests are pure electricity. With the great humor lining the pages, a reader can’t make a much better date for a quiet evening by the fire.
