Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.

Parker Berenson has recently defeated the old alpha of Seattle's werewolf clan, assuming the title and all its responsibilities. If running the clan wasn't enough, he also has to deal with the local Master vampire, Kurt, and his former lover, Garrett, a powerful witch. "Complecated" doesn't even begin to describe their relationship.

In the world Bland lays out for us, Earth is populated with humans and exotics (in slang-

First I just want to say how much I loved this book. It's not something I would normaly read, so I was completely shocked when I started reading. The reason I loved this book is very simple: it was well written with a great plot and characters.

If you love vampires, witches, ware wolves, and all that stuff you have to run out and buy this book!!!! Its not for children or young readers. And yes that means there are some parts that make it impossible to put it down.

I'm going to have to abandon this one having read about a third of it. What promised to be a lively, different, paranormal book left me rather puzzled with my lack of investment in the characters.

Parker, a werewolf alpha and leader of the Seattle pack, struck me as completely ineffectual in that he dithered in making decisions; got angry at being questioned about his actions or non-actions; did not appear to have any control (or even seeming control) over his pack; and IMO did not deserve the re

For me, this book is very complicated. There were parts that I really enjoyed and others that made me want to altogether stop reading it. In my opinion, the entirety of this novel is one big hodgepodge of random characters and erotic imagery. Yes, there is quite a lot of sex in this book. Maybe a little too much. The way in which it was portrayed was strange, to say the least. The plot itself left many unanswered questions. It would begin

I won this book as a result of the Goodreads First Readers Contest. I was quite excited to find out how the author would combine two of my favourite genres.
I am now finished and still a little confused by the book. The characters were great - I like characters that have faults along with abilities. However there were times in the story that I felt as if I had missed whole chapters. There were leaps in the storyline that I wished had been better explained. There were more than enough chapters an

I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads and I must say, I'm disappointed.

Sure, the plot sounds...a bit weird. But I was hoping that this might be in favour of the book, making it different and interesting. Sadly it wasn't and it didn't.

I spend the first 150 pages getting to know (and hate!) the characters while desperately waiting for the real plot to begin...then I gave up.
I couldn't identify with any of the characters and I disliked most of them after some time.

I'm not sayin

The Underground was the weirdest book I have ever read. The mature content tag is definitely warranted. There were all sorts of zots: vampires, warewolfs (and other wares such as rats and panthers), witches, elves (to a lesser extent), and alien and a demon. Half of the book seemed to be some kind of graphic sex scene between one zot and another or multiple zots.

Based on the novel description I was expecting a lot more with Melera and Parker trying to prove Melera’s innocence in the murders. Th

Got the book from Goodreads First Reads.

It was...different. An alien--and every supernatural creature you can imagine--dealing with a turf war in Seattle. Could have used some more editing. I think the summary gave a bit too much away if you were supposed to care more about Garrett betraying Parker. It also felt like the author wanted to shove everything she knew about into one novel. The four main voices was okay, since they all had different stories, and the uthie's and Pinkie's spotlights hel

I enjoyed this story, it was quite different. There were times I was feeling that there was a lot missing with the background for the characters. For the most part the characters were well developed, there were some characters needing more development and background. The world building was mediocre, some of the world building could have been done better. With some time, this story could be made even better. I like it, but although I wanted to, I didn't love it.

It was not my usual type of story, but sorry to say I really got confused with this book. I had a hard time linking the story together. I wanted to like it, but...... :(

Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book. There is simply too much going on at once and it took a long time to figure out where the story was going.

I was really excited to read this book, and even more excited that I won it in one of the first reads giveaways in goodreads in February, but I still haven't received my copy.
