Monsters are roaming the streets of London. Of course, some monsters are scarier than others:

Unicorns? No bother.
Vampires? Big deal.
Werewolves? Ho hum.

Lawyers? ... Aaargh!

Duncan's boss doesn't think that he's cut out to be a lawyer. He isn't a pack animal. He lacks the killer instinct. But when his best friend from school barges his way back

Overview

Monsters are roaming the streets of London. Of course, some monsters are scarier than others:

Unicorns? No bother.
Vampires? Big deal.
Werewolves? Ho hum.

Lawyers? ... Aaargh!

Duncan's boss doesn't think that he's cut out to be a lawyer. He isn't a pack animal. He lacks the killer instinct. But when his best friend from school barges his way back into Duncan's life, with a full supporting cast of lawyers, ex-wives, zombies and snow-white unicorns, it's not long before things become distinctly unsettling.
Hairy, even.

This is my current favorite book, the balance between comedy and drama is perfect, and most of the humor is drawn from the main character's boring, average persona being juxtaposed against the increasingly strange and supernatural events occurring. I can't recommend it enough. My only complaint is that there isn't more!

Another fantastic book by Tom Holt. Werewolves, vampires, and zombies. Oh, my. Funny and pacey. Read this one and then all his others.

Here's my background... <p> I was recently a well-known member of BloodClan. Some others cats were RPed by my RPer, and...well, the he left to take a break from the chaos on the wrong day...BloodClan was attacked, causing more then half the members to leave. My RPer was really upset about the leaders choices; the new rule said that if traitors were to come back, they'd be killed. My brother, Jaggedclaw commited suicide for BloodClan didn't have a good leader. I'm a loner now, with my other siblings. Our mother had a rather large litter. Now I have Legend, Redd, BearTooth, and Havoc. I want to have a new member in the family, so yeah. Consider it.
