BROKEN: Women of the Otherworld - Kelley Armstrong

From the back of the book: In this thrilling newnovel from the author of INDUSTRIAL MAGIC, a pregnant werewolf may have unwittingly unleashed Jack the Ripper on twenty-first century Toronto--and become his next target....
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 , which Elena inadvertantly 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......
I love this series!! And the ones that star Elena are the best as far as I'm concerned. It took a lot for Elena to come back to her pack and admit her feelings for the abrasive Clay. Don't think that because of that statement that this is a paranormal romance. It very much isn't. I love the relationship Elena has with her sweetie, but the relationship between Elena and Clay does not take center stage. It's the relationship Elena has with the pack and friends that is there as well as the action of the mystery that is in the middle of it all. Well written storylines with intriguing mysteries to follow and excellent paranormal characters.
This is a seriously fast-paced page turner that I highly recommend.
Five catch the Ripper beans.....
