Queen Mab's niece, Fiona, has long been bored to tears by the intrigues of Court life. She'd prefer to cut loose at a punk club, knock back a few Thai beers, and hook up with a likely lad of similar interests. But when Fiona goes AWOL, she only gets as far as Manhattan's Inwood Park before a nasty demon nearly puts a permanent crimp in her plans--and a dark stranger spark

Although this one had all the elements that usually intrigues me in a PNR (paranormal romance), much of the book felt flat and I'm not sure why.

Fiona is a High Sidhe Faerie Princess and niece to Queen Mab of the Seelie Court as well as niece to Dinouu of the Unseelie court. In Warren's world, this puts her in direct line to inherit the throne of either as neither Mab not Dinouu have children. She' not to keen on court intrigue so she breaks Queen Mab's rule on no traveling to the earthly realm f...more

Okay, the title sucks. But don't let the title scare you away. This is a funny, sexy, involved story that's pretty well-written. The main character, Fiona, is the niece of Queen Mab, the ruler of the Seelie Course of Faerie. She is bored with court and all of the intrigues that are a part of being a possible heir, so Fiona sneaks through the gate into the mortal world, popping out in Central Park. Instead of getting to eat hot dogs and hang out at punk clubs, though, Fiona is almost immediately...more

I seem to be finding a pattern in these "paranormal romance" novels.

Take (1) girl (who usual doesn't know she is part vampire/werewolf/other because she is an orphan/changeling) and throw her into the seedy underbelly of an alternative universe that lives right along side us (usually in a big city like New York or Boston).

Take (1) boy (who is a full blooded warrior of said-other society (usually vampire/werewolf or combination of the two)) and allow him to stumble upon girl. Oh he has to have...more

This is the second book in The Others series, and it was just as good as the first. I liked Walker from the start, but I didn't expect to actually like Fiona (Princess Fiona? Hello Shrek), but surprisingly I did. They also worked very well as a couple.

While a bit more violent than the first book, I quite enjoyed the introduction to the whole Demon realm, and the Fae world. Great potential for some more stories from both.

The only thing is that a bit confusing is that this series is supposedly pr...more

I guess one of the reasons that I love Christine Warren’s book so much is that her “world” is populated with so many wonderful paranormal entities. There are Were-creatures, Vampires, Fae, Demons, Fiends and a wide assortment of humans that interact with them. Ms. Warren also has a wicked sense of humor and the ability to make you cry when there is heartbreak. I loved the interaction between Walker, a werewolf, and Fiona, a high Fae princess. Fiona is a good time girl just wanting to have some f...more

Synopsis
Tired of the intrigue at her aunt Mab's court, Fiona is in dire need of a vacation. Upon her arrival in New York, Fiona is attacked by a demon and rescued by Tobias Walker, a cranky werewolf with better things to do than babysit a faerie princess. In the midst of the negotiations surrounding the unveiling of the Others to humanity, Walker and Fiona must deal not only with rampaging demons and a summoner with nefarious plans for the fae and humanity but wi...more

I LOVED it (again ;) lol)!!!!!!!! The sex was hot hot HOT!!!, the men were delicious, Fiona was feisty, the action was kick-ass, and the sex, sweet jesus the sex, lets just say no one writes better hot love scenes them Christine Warren!!! ;)
Although I must say that while I loved Walker very very much, Graham still holds my heart above all others and to find out in this that he and Missy have two little boys now made me very happy! :) Walker got a little on my nerves in a few early parts of the b...more

3 1/2 stars. Entertaining story of a Fae, Fiona and the Werewolf, Walker, she meets who turns out to be her mate. As if that wasn't enough of a surprise (with the old immortal/mortal issue facing them), they must also figure out why the gates to Faerie are blocked and there are demons running through Manhattan killing humans and Others alike. Then there is Fiona's less than trustworthy uncle, the King of the Unseelie Court taking up residence in New York as well. Meanwhile, the Others are in sec...more

I read this on the trusted recommendation of fellow romance audiobook readers, and it didn't disappoint! With master narrator Kate Reading at the helm, I knew it would be good.

In this story, Faerie Princess Fiona decides to slip away from Faerie and the pressure of the Faerie Court ruled by her aunt, Queen Mab, and take a little punk vacation in Manhattan. She wasn't counting on the demon at the gate trying to eat her heart out, or the Lupine Tobias Walker rescuing her and stealing said heart in...more

OIY OIY OIY! I can't get over how amazing this book was. I had read another Others novel before and loved it! (Regina's) This one was different, and it had been a while since I read the last one. Completely worth the read. I slammed through it in about a day and a half. Not too too bad. I cannot wait! to get my hands on every single other Others book in this series, and then maybe some of Christine's others too. Christine Warren's writing is amazing, and the intrigue and characters in her books...more

A Fun Read With Two Characters To Cheer For
Christine Warren's second book in The Others series is a better balanced and fleshed out novel than Wolf at the Door, with a stronger narrative and creative world building that enhances the paranormal romance novel's base plot sufficiently enough to lift the book out of the doldrums of been-there-read-that and give it a breath of freshness, even though the world of the series isn't the most original (creatures of myth and legend taking steps to come out...more
Mitabird (reviews on BookLikes)
She's No Faerie Princess was pretty good. Fiona is a Fae princess who is bored and wants to take a vacation. She decides to visit the human world to do this, even though it's forbidden by her aunt, Queen Mab. Walker is a beta lupine of the Silverback Clan. The Others are brokering basic rights with the humans before they are introduced to the populace. Walker is currently on patrol to make sure none of the Others get out of hand while the negotiations are taking place. However, when Fiona crosse...more

She's No Faerie Princess is Book 10 in Christine Warren's Others series. I won the book in a Dirty Santa game at a Christmas party. How the heck I'd missed this author and series before now is a source of "shame" for me now. I had no trouble jumping into the middle of the series. This book was well-written, clear, and clever. The heroine, Fiona, is the niece of both the Seelie and Unseelie court rulers. She's got a mind of her own, hates palace politics and skips blithely into the human world ju...more

I can´t remember when I last laughed so much at a book. The dialogue is witty and very modern witch made it very easy for me to connect with the Heroine. I mean a Alpha male is an Alpha male what ever the spices. And Tobias Walker sure is an Alpha even if he is Beta in his pack.

I love all the supporting characters, Missy and Graham, Rafe and Tess...

I also liked the idea with the council trying to get at treaty with the humans that would get the Others same rights as humans.

The only thing that go...more

Overall this was a pretty good book. There was plenty of funny moments in the beginning, but as the story moved on I had a hard time finishing this book.

Part of the problem was that I found some of the plot hard to swallow cheesy. To me the scene with the demon in Central Park (the second time) was one of those moments. I mean come on, "My name is Rule I'm not like the other demons... they're fiends." That just seemed a little stupid to me.

Also I didn't care for the possessiveness of the werewo...more

I like the world this author creates, and the little emphasis on details like the importance of storytellers. I could see the villain's identity coming from a mile away, but the twists of the plot at least made me doubt my conclusions here and there.

The ending felt a little abrupt though, I like my stories to spend a little time relishing the afterglow of a good resolution. This felt a little more like a Scooby Doo episode, with a quick trap and meddling kids, some witty pun and that's the end....more

This is Christine Warren's second book in The Others series. Like Cynthia Eden's Midnight series there is quite a bit of sex in this book, but the sex here was integral to the story, and told with an intensity and purpose that both stimulated and amused us at the same time.

This is a world of Urban Fantasy. Through 2 books we have been introduced to various types of Shapeshifters, some pack oriented others not so much, Vampires, Witches, Demons, Faeries, Pixies, and Imps. I have enjoyed her mytho...more

Really enjoyed this book. Loved the spunky, hard headed Herione, Fiona, the Fae Princess. And our hunky and sexy leading Lupine, Toby, the Alpha's second of the Silverback Clan.
These 2 make a strange love match, more like fire/ice or love/hate. But there's never a dull moment with Fiona around.
This series is getting better each moment and the best moment in this book is when we meet a dark character names Rule...
He's sexy, dark, demon and in the next book he's our leading man.

In the battle of go...more

So the author is giving me bits and pieces of Tess ans Rafael which is kinda cliffhanger! I want a large piece! Tess is like oh-so-awesome and I wanna read about them, how they met and how her mind works.
This book contains new characters and the only old ones are Tess and Rafael. But also Annie whom Cassie met when Quinn chased her.
So I really love Fiona's wit and humor at the start but it kinda dwindled down when Walker jumped her-literally. But I guess that's common when your mind is occupied...more

The best part of this book were the first two chapters and the last 40 pages. It kind of dragged in the middle. Jeez, they really needed to keep their clothes on. One of the premises was that to keep her magical powers intact in this world, Fiona, a faerie princess, had to tap into her passion. Good thing she found a werewolf lover who could keep up, so to speak. Good-ish story with too much sex.
Bradley
Finally I found a paranormal romance worth keeping. Only trouble is I have to surrender it to my wifie! Hehe! Excellent story, page-turner, great sex, and never gets boring! =)

Give me a C! Give me an O! Give me an N! Give me an S, E, N, T! What does that spell? CONSENT!
Yeah, any orderly reading of these I have done is by accident. This one was better about consent. Though I did want to Gibbs one of the gals in a scene that just bugged the shit out of me. The excuses for the gal just sounded a wee bit too much like...stuff that's been said to me. Not just consent, kids, ENTHUSIASTIC consent.
Still, really enjoyed the story overall so only knocked half a star off. Consid...more

This is the second book in the series about the Others and overall it was a fun and sassy story with characters that were interesting to read about. The story takes some familiar elements and infuses them with less common ideas to create a story that's spicy and interesting but still light enough to satisfy on hot summer days.

Fiona is a walking, talking Faerie Princess, and has all the attitude and issues one might expect such a person to have. She's accustomed to drama and betrayal, which makes...more
 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
I'm not going to change my four star rating, because I felt like this was a 4 star book when I read it. However, some elements of the storytelling have caused me to discontinue this series. It's not a bad book or a bad series. It's just too sex-focused for me. I love faerie stories, and I thought the fact that Fiona was a faerie princess was very cool. However, I didn't like the execution in that being a faerie princess became a plot point to string together the numerous sexual encounters in the...more
Autumn
This is the second in a series about the others (magical beings) struggling with the unveiling of their existence to mere mortals. The premis is great, not one I have read before and handled very believably. I liked this book, didn't love it.
This story follows Fiona (a Fairy princess) and Walker (a werewolf)who run into lust with each other by page 20, mating and love (in that order) soon after. They chase demons, bury loved ones and have a passionate beginning to their relationship.
Okay I didn...more
Torzilla
Rafe and Tess reappear once more in this second installment and are their same witty, sarcastic selves. I'm delighted, and really wish that they had their own book focused on their relationship, but I suppose that's wishful thinking.

Walker and Fiona have an electric relationship, and the sex that they have is definitely steamy. But aside from them having sex, I was somewhat unconvinced at certain scenes about the "realness" of these characters and their relationship. Finoa's immortal and struggl...more
Rosemarie
I've never read this author before but the story interested me because it is set in a fantasy version of New York City where "Others" (all manner of fantasy creatures) are in political talks with humans for equal rights. The main characters are a Werewolf and a princess from the realm of Faerie so I took it to be a possible Beauty & the Beast type story - but I was way off base. It's not romantic, IMO, so much as lustful. The language is often boorish and the sex scenes are rough - not my st...more

Finally we have more of a story line to go with. Fiona has made her way into the mortal realm although we know how well that went when her cousin made that same path a few years ago.

Now the beta, security guard, lupine has to make sure she doesn't create any issues when it comes to the safety of not only pack but of the negotiations for the Others' coming out.

I liked this one a bit more than the last few I have read.
Nakeesha
I hate not finishing books. Its like leaving food on a plate and then sloping it into the trash when you know there are kids starving around the planet. But this book was just inedible.

I was very interested in the hero. He had all the right backstory; all the right present quirks, but I just didn't care enough to keep turning the pages. A good mystery was underway and clues were being laid at a good pace. Fiona...eh. I didn't really care about her. Maybe that's why I put it down. Actually, yeah...more
Marsha
This really didn't hold my attention. I kept getting distracted by more interesting things. The characters were poorly developed and unimpressive. Walker is a cave man, and Fiona is interchangeable with any romantic heroine, completely unremarkable.

It has really begun to irk me when authors rely on fate rather than character, attraction, and personality for the basis of love. The whole "mine" business was the cause of much eye-rolling and got even more annoying when combined with irrational pos...more

Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that...

When not scrambling frantically to complete her latest writi...more
