I feel rather ambivalent about this book. On the one hand it's always fun to spend some time with the Torchwood team. On the other, the plot had some rather silly moments. I'm an expert at suspending my disbelief, but once unicorns start flying around, even I have to admit things have gotten ridiculous.
Still, there were several things I liked about the book: Jack and Ianto on a date; Gwen and Rhys in a car chase; and Tosh (my favourite character) getting plenty to do. I also like the idea of Achenbrite, a rival organisation that also knows about the Rift and uses alien tech, and journalist David Brigstocke would make a great reoccurring character.
Overall, this is an average Torchwood story--entertaining but ultimately forgettable.
Anghelides did a great job on the characterization with this book. All of the characters were dead-on and even allowed insight to them in a way you don't get during the series. The author let you in and see the in-depth relationships between Rhys and Gwen and Jack and Ianto. Rhys played a much larger role in this book than he did in the regular series and this book was a Janto fangirl's wet dream.
The only real problem I had with this book was the quick, unsatisfying ending with the monster-of-the-week. The book builds and builds and builds, but once you found out who was behind all of the madness the book just died.
Overall, 'Pack Animals' (and my God, take a shot every time the phrase 'Pack Animals' appears in the novel. You'll get tipsy at least.) was very enjoyable.
By the way, if you have not seen or do not know what happens in the episodes 'Reset' and `Dead Man Walking' then I suggest that you NOT read this unless you enjoy spoilers. This book was clearly set after the events in those two episodes.
