I really enjoyed this book. I love fantasy/Sci-Fi writing and anything that combines werewolves, minions, secret societies and monsters is all right with me! The pace is good, the characters are well written and interesting.
The involvement of classical monsters and historical events within the story is an interesting twist. I particularly liked the inclusion of modern scientific developments and the correct use of laboratory equipment (my not so inner scientist approved!).
There are villians aplenty and no-one is quite who they seem. I’m looking forward to the sequel (always a good sign), as the book ends on something of a cliff hanger.
