Jake Marlowe is the last werewolf. Now just over 200 years old, Jake has an insatiable appreciation for good scotch, books, and the pleasures of the flesh, with a voracious libido and a hunger for meat that drives him crazy each full moon. Although he is physically healthy, Jake has slipped into a deep existential crisis, considering taking his own life and ending a legend that has lived for thousands of years. But there are two dangerous groups--one new, one ancient--with reasons of their own for wanting Jake very much alive. (Goodreads Synopsis)

The Last Werewolf was an enjoyable read filled with drama and a hint of comedy from the main narrating character, Jake. The story was interesting and moved along at a good pace and there was adequate character development to make the reader feel like the conclusion was correct.

This is an easy reading book with short chapters, which made it great to pick up when you only had a few moments to spare without losing the plotline. This is an entertaining book that should please the usual paranormal fans with a blend of drama, action, comedy and sex.
