Although much of this book was fun to read, a lot really didn't make sense, even the small details. For instance, both Helen and Emma have decent jobs and although the livery/stable where Helen works is supposedly flourishing with business, the two can't afford to pay their gas and electric bills.

This is my first read by Sims and Maynard. There was so much wrong with this "creature story" that I will not list it all, but I will say that the storyline was a jumbled mess and everything was wrapped up so quickly in the last 5 pages that for a second I thought there was going to be a "to be continued" ending. I did finish it in the hopes that it would get better. It never did. Not recommended.
Several of the reviews said it was boring. I disagree. To me this was fast-paced and interesting. Believable? Never. And two men creating a lesbian female lead character is more than risky -- it's almost foolish. But I liked this book more than I expected. And I really grew fond of Emma. The ending wasn't what I expected or liked, but in some ways that may be for the best.
