Sorry for taking so long to respond!

The main plot of the novel is a mystery, but her relationship with Dale builds throughout. I would say it's categorized more as a mystery than romance.(less)

Okay...

Well, it was fine - didn't feel the emotion between Adi and Dale, but the thriller aspects were fine, if a little perfunctory for my tastes. Diverting read, not sure if I will read further in this series.

I really enjoyed this page turner of a novel. The introduction really set the scene with its traditional concepts on what proved to be an exciting new take on a very traditional tale.


The first two chapters, brilliantly captured the tone of the book as well as relating relevant information regarding both leading females. We were made aware of each of the characters strengths and weaknesses as well as their growing relationship and feelings towards each other.

Despite Ari being able to tra

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 this book but wouldn't call it satisfying as a stand-alone or even the first in a series. The characters and their relationships are really established in the short stories set before this which, thankfully, the author has made available to read for free online. As a longer episode in an ongoing series of stories about Ari and Dale, this book works well, but as a novel I wish the short stories were more supplementary than foundational to the reading experience. The stories on Ao3 range ...more

I thought this book was OK, but it is above average as far as paranormal lesfic is concerned. The writing style was ok; not spectacular or deeply intelligent, but definitely not sub-par.
The characters were likeable, and even the supporting roles were written well enough to give them depth.

Some of the plot moves hit me the wrong way, but i dont want to give spoilers, and it's probably just an opinion thing anyhow. It is shorter than most novels, which might explain why some parts of the storyline

Meh!

No work of Art. No great plot, story telling, ingenuity or execution.

Felt like a waste of time, half the time but I was bored and I read it and I rather having found not-so-gooda paranorm about lesbians that not having read it at all. Turns out that that's not entirely true

Wouldn't recommend it. I REALLY wna c lez and or bi characters or people in otherwise homo-relationship within my favorite genres, paranorm/fantasy/sci-fi, but it's not good enough to just be gay friendly. I like good lit

As always, Mr. Cannon has written a really good mistery novel. I wont comment in deep (wouldn't want to ruin the mistery) but I can say that he has taken Ariadne Willow's and Dale Frye's characters and made them even rounder and deeper than they where before.
