Story was good - just as it was good in the anthology it was originally published in. I love this author, but am not happy I paid twice for this.

Just when I thought I couldn't like Andrews's books more, along comes this novella. My favorite stories are often the ones where the heroine, despite her competence in other areas, is completely unsure of herself as a romantic figure; Dali is utterly convincing in that role, and her conversations with Jim are heartwrenching, even though the happily ever after is never in doubt. Better yet, Andrews develops a new area of her post-magicocalypse Atlanta in developing the East-Asian communities and an underground market. A great addition to the Kate Daniels world.

I originally bought Hexed and glad I read the overview where it tells you that it originally published there (not sure if that was added after some of the reviews complained about buying the book twice) but thought I would add the review here. I really enjoyed this novella, it was a nice change from all the werewolf shapechanger novels out there and I hope the author further expands on these werecats in the future.

This short novella is centered around the werejaguar Jim and the were-white tiger Dali. Jim is the Pack's chief of security, a job he takes very seriously. Dali is one of the more unusual weres in the Pack. Being a white tiger makes her sacred in her culture, yet she is sooo not your typical tiger. Dali can't see very much of anything - she's probably legally blind, but who in their eight mind would tell a tiger that, let alone put it on their driver's license? And the icing on the cake - she's a vegetarian who can't stand the sight or smell of blood. So much for being near the top of the food chain. Dali does possess magic though, learned from her family. While Curran and Kate are off handling their own situation something happens that brings Jim to Dali's doorstep, asking for her help. Dali is stunned, as she feels like Jim isn't even aware that she exists, while she is hyper-aware of him. An entire office never checked in - four decent weres were gone. Jim had gone to check it out and found that something was very, very wrong. The place was dirty, quiet, and had an odd symbol drawn on the floor. A symbol that Jim couldn't recall, which was unheard if for him and scared Dali fairly badly since she could only think of a few spells that could cause tat kind of mental confusion. The two team up to investigate the situation, which turns into far more than either expected. And when Jim's life is on the line Dali finds the inner courage to risk everything to save him. For Dali is wildly in love with Jim, the kind where if you had to choose to have their life or their live you would choose life each time, even if it meant they might forget who you are. A sweet novella, this story gave much greater insight both characters, which was fun. While Jim has been featured more prominently in other stories, Dali has mostly been a minor character. Not exactly easy for someone who turns into a very large white tiger. At just over 100 pages this makes for a nice lunch-break reading, while helping us addicts get through the wait for the release of the next novel in the series.

Ilonda Andrews has become one of my new favorite authors. I read a short story about Kate in another book and it intrigued me enough to get me to try the first book of the series. I have now rapidly consumed them all and have begun her "Edge" series which is just as good. Great characters that are flawed in ways we can relate to, strong heroines that don't cross the line to superwoman and who remain likable. Love it.
