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.
Main plot aside, the book has two really interesting subplots: first, an organization called Achenbrite which is actually one step ahead of Torchwood in understanding and manipulating the Rift; and second, an investigative journalist named David Brigstocke, who would make a great recurring character even if he gets dosed with Retcon at the end of every book. Oh, and did I mention that Jack and Ianto go on a date to the zoo? Very cute.

Not quiet as good as the other torchwood stories previous in the series but worth the read thought the detail around wrapping up the conclusion was sketchy but all in all not badPublished 9 months ago by Thomas A. Costa
I'm a Torchwood fan, so getting my fix since the show was put on infinite limbo is always a good thing! This one had an interesting story and was fairly well paced. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Jolie_B
