Helpful Score: 6
The first half of this book was pretty good. Love the chemistry between Quinn and Cassie. BUT... the second half was a whole other story... I had to force myself to finish it. Skimmed some as the writing became repetitive. And the story line IMO unraveled. I had a hard time with the many times the main characters were fighting with the "bad guys" and shifted/changed into their were-creatures, changing back into human form being naked at times then it being said they had clothes, then being naked again. The ending just didn't make much sense to me, the reason for the secondary bad guys, the why of why they were bad, what they wanted with Cassie and Quinn in the first place never really made sense. I understand the story continues with more books, but I won't be reading on to find out what happens with the other bad guys. I really didn't care near the end what was going to happen, there was way too much dialogue, even the intimate scenes were a bit eye-roll worthy.
Wolf at the Door was a decent read. It started out slowly, but picked up the pace half-way through. It's basically about a group of fanatics who call themselves the Light of Truth, threatening to unveil the paranormal world of The Others. The Others are trying to find them before it's too late. I thought that the romance between Quinn (a lupine) and Cassidy (a foxwoman) was pretty bland. They were fine as characters, though they could have been a little more developed. I felt that there was no spark between them and I was told they feel in love, rather than shown. The plot was decent enough and I'll read the next one in the series.
It was a fun easy read. Warren tends to repeat herself a bit so it can get a little annoying. She seems to really like the Little Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf analogy. She uses it in "Big Bad Wolf" at least. The characters are fun, especially the side ones.
Even though this is the first of the series, the later books really belong first so it can be a little confusing. It's because some of the other books started out as shorter stories and she rewrote them into books. So if you are the type that needs to read things in order, you'll have to read some of the reviews or go on the Warren's website to see if you can figure out which book goes first chronologically. She also has a free short story on her website about Richard.
Overall, this was a decent book. Nothing spectacular but worth the read.
I've had this book sitting around for awhile, and just now picked it up. I'm glad I did, because it reeled me in right away! I finished it in 2 days, and probably would have finished it even faster than that had I not gone to work, but hey...have to pay bills!
Can't wait to read the second book in the series, She's No Faerie Princess, as soon as I get it!
It took me a while to pick this out of the "to be read pile", but once i started it i really enjoyed it. There is nothing extraordinary or different about this series, except it adds a lot of other paranormal species than you usually find. Brownies, shifters, gnomes, vampires, werewolves, etc. But this book had me laughing out loud. It has a great sense of humor and a charming love story mixed in with the drama, thrills, and the crux of the story...defeating the enemy. It reminded me a little of the Mercy Thompson or the Sookie Stackhouse series. I look forward to the rest of the series, each book looks to be a different paranormal charcter.
Very good introduction to the world of the Others! Warren writes in a fun, quick style that lures you in without becoming too complicated. Good beginning to a series and an author I will add to the collection!
Pretty doggone boring. Even the sex was blah. I put this one down wothout finishing it, and that says a lot. I will usually struggle through inthe hopes that a book will get into the groove later on. This one just wasn't worth it.
This was a quick and fun book. I enjoyed the suspence and the air of who done it. this book does leave you hanging a bit you if you do not like having all the end tied up at the end of a book well you will have to make sure to pick up the next book right away. I do like the ending.
I didn't expect to, but I really liked this book. My interest was peaked constantly right until the end which was action packed. Loved all the characters, although I found one small flaw that bothered me about one of them, but it passed. Have put the rest of the series on my WL.
This book is about otherkin and their community. A werewolf has come from Ireland to America, to reiterate to the New York council that it's time to reveal themselves to the world. The other side of this mingling of were's is that this Irish wolf finds his life mate who happens to be a fox woman. There's steaminess, sarcasm, and quite a delectable amount of good writing in this book. I enjoy the author, and would love to read more of her selections. If you like fantasy, were-animals, sex, and humor, then you'll positively enjoy this book.
Brava for Hot Steamy Sex! It's so great that it didn't take long for it to happen either. The storyline is interesting. The human characters remind me of my true friends or at least people I would want in my life. The non-human characters although powerful and fierce are great humanitarians. I find myself yelling 'Hell No!' or Go for it! as I would at a movie screen. This is a page- turner. (Oh did I mention the Hot Steamy Sex?)
Another quick romantic read with the twist of supernatural. Have to say I really enjoy these quicker reads. and then the images that come with a big muscular man with an accent... you had me at muscular...
From the back: Sullivan Quinn is in the U.S. on a mission, to warn his Other brethren of a shadowy group willing to use murder and mayhem to bring them down. But one whiff of this Foxwoman's delicious honeysuckle fragrance and he knows that she is more than a conquest-she is his mate.
