Michael, a six-year-old human child, becomes a pawn in a sadistic werewolf’s plan for revenge against Boston North Pack's Alpha, Tobias Rogan. 

Hummus On Rye is the fourth book in the Real Werewolves Don't Eat Meat series. Each book in this series features the dark side of werewolves. However, the plot in this episode is gloomier than the previous installments. The flaws of the in-depth characters, as well as severe pack laws, are clearly demonstrated.  Kyle Slidell is very stubborn; not only does he continue to bend the rules, Kyle is still holding on to a human vow to honor a long dead lover by remaining a vegan, which shows a lack of respect for his inner wolf but also for his mate, Tobias. Kyle refuses to accept he has changed and must adjust to his life as a werewolf. Tobias is a compassionate man; unfortunately using logic is not one of his strong traits. Living in an apartment complex along side of humans Increases the pack’s chances of discovery, especially when he has the means to buy a place that could accommodate his pack as other packs have done. The true victim in this saga is the child, who is now weighed down with a life of keeping secrets in addition to having night terrors brought on by a powerful psycho werewolf still at large.

Hummus On Rye is a enjoyable story though I must say the characters can be exasperating. Yet when help is needed, all the honorable werewolves are there to lend a hand, redeeming this dark tale to a hopeful future.
