This was a wonderful novella featuring Derek and Julie. There was tons of action in here, some interesting magic, and some humor. I really enjoyed it a lot and would definitely recommend to fans of urban fantasy.
This is the first book in the Grey Wolf series. Derek is now a lone wolf and, when people he love start being murdered, he takes to the streets to hunt their killers. Julie has been training her magic talent in secret and is determined to help Derek with his mission in any way she can. Their trials lead them into battles with some interesting creatures and involve a new crazy magical item.
This novella can be read as a stand alone, but it's nice if you have read the Kate Daniels books so you have some additional background on the characters.
There was a lot of magic, action, crazy creatures, and fun witty banter throughout this book. This novella packs in all the wonderful things I love about the Kate Daniels series but also lets the reader get to understand Derek and Julie a bit better.
Overall a very engaging and entertaining start to a new spin off series from the Kate Daniels world. I love Derek and Julie as characters so it was wonderful to learn more about them. I also really enjoyed all the action, magic, and crazy magical creatures. As with all of the Andrews books there is some excellent humor throughout as well. Highly recommended to fans of urban fantasy.
