This is a paranormal lesbian romance, with interesting characters and world-building. This is a great intoduction to this world of shifters, and of Geonn Cannon's writing in general. I saw that some of the reviewers were disappointed because this wasn't what they expected (ie. not a teen romance, or a heterosexual one), but being familiar with Mr. Cannon's work, it was exactly what I expected, and even surpassed my expectations. I recommend this and his "Riley Parra" series for anyone looking for excellent paranormal lesbian romance.

This book came recommended, so I was excited to give it a read. I jokingly said, "No werewolf stories!" and was informed that I would like this one because the main character is a wolf (technically "canidae"), not a werewolf. I'm pleased to say that I wasn't at all disappointed. It's a fun, light read that had all the elements to make me happy: A bit of fairy tale/supernatural, a crime to solve, and women falling in love. What's not to like? The main characters, Ari and Dale, are likeable and fun. I enjoyed getting to know them as the story unfolded. They are smart, savvy, and capable, but they're not specimens of perfect womanhood, which I appreciated. Their relationship felt natural to me, if a bit predictable (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). It felt a bit slow to start, though I was glad for the background information. The pace picked up quickly, however, and I was soon absorbed. There were a few moments where I had to suspend my disbelief, and not regarding the wolf-human elements. For example, the climactic "take down the bad guys" scene was a bit over-the-top and unrealistic. However, it fit the story, and unless one cares about having a true-to-life crime story ending, it doesn't really matter. The "murder mystery" plot wasn't much of a mystery, as it's both predictable from the beginning and the whodunnit is known about halfway through. So if you're looking for a true mystery, this is not it. The fun is in how Ari and Dale thwart the bad guys and find their happy-for-now ending. So if that's your thing, this is definitely the book for you. I did think there were some frequently-used detective story themes, and it was a bit hard to tell if those were intended as tongue-in-cheek or to be taken seriously. I lean towards the former because the general tone of the book is fairly light, but that might be off-putting for someone looking for a fresh take. I thought the sensuality was just right in terms of how much/how descriptive relative to the rest of the plot. There were a few moments where it felt just a bit choppy, but it evened out. Overall, I really enjoyed this and look forward to more. I give it 4 stars. Amy

Thought this was a young adult book. Not so. Explicit girl on girl. Parents be warned.

However the love scene was NOT remotely explicit. It was PG on sex and lots of swearing. Waste of time to read.

Not the best book I have read, not by a long shot. Everything is too neatly wrapped up for my tastes and its hard to actually identify with the main characters. Didn't even finsh it.
