Unleashed, by Kristopher Reisz (Simon Pulse, 2008)

Daniel appears to have a perfect life, with a gorgeous girlfriend and Cornell in his near future, but deep within, he’s discontent and looking for something more. Then he starts hanging around Misty and her friends, a wild and rebellious group with a dark secret: they’ve learned how to become wolves, roaming the streets of Birmingham at night. Soon, Daniel’s one of them, casting away all the aspects of his normal life as he embraces a new romance with Misty, and his inner wolf, but will it cost him too much? And can he prevent things from turning into tragedy when the price of power becomes too high? Reisz delivers a powerful, feral tale of magic and choice set in the streets of a dying city. A thoroughly satisfying dark urban fantasy, I couldn’t put Unleashed down once I started it.
