Better Off Undead by D.D. Barant

Jace had the experience of coming into an alternate parallel dimension that looks exactly like Earth but instead of humans the planet is populated by werewolves, vampires and golems and only one percent is human. For Jace to go back to Earth she has to work in this world's National Security Agency. After making friends in Thropirelem, Jace's friend Dr. Pete has been magically turned into a dark side of himself called Tair and Jace is going to do anything to get Dr. Pete back. After Tair escapes from prison, Jace is on a mission to find Tair and bring back the old Dr. Pete. On her journey she faces many challenges after Tair infects her with the werewolf virus. Jace must try to keep her human self while also helping Tair become his past self again even if he doesn't want to. With help from her trusty partner Charlie, the golem, Jace gets involved in a werewolf mafia and is locked in the fight of her life.

Better off Undead is the fourth book in The Bloodhound Files series. Considering the book is the fourth one and I didn't read the other three this book made sense. The book would have made more sense of course with the other three but D.D. Barant did a good job of catching the readers up. At some points the reader can get lost in this story's plot line where one event happens then another happens with barely any explanation. The characters and setting were written well and you believed in them as if they could be real people and places. The ending was interesting and not a letdown at all.
