This book, unlike its predecessor, gets off and running rather quickly, picking up nearly right where the last one left off. It develops the main character further, but goes much more into depth on the other characters involved (especially the protagonist's significant other), their relationships, the protagonist's relationship, and meanwhile begins to introduce some more characters that will continue to be important.

Like the other books in this series, it's a quick read and a fun ride. The cha

This was a good follow up book. It kept a continuation of characters and focused more on the Raven aspect of the main character (as the title suggests). I like the characters a lot. I only have two gripes. One, they focused very little on the villain and the case. Two, unevenly focused on the character depth of the main characters. I definitely liked the book and would continue to follow the series as it currently stands.

Very good. I like the author's voice and humor. The mystery was pretty easy to figure out and the red herring was a bit frustrating but, all in all, a good book.

The author joined us on episode 12 of Cocktail Hour to talk about her debut book.

Secondo appuntamento con Kassandra Liall, detective privata del paranormale. Ho apprezzato questo volume più del precedente, sebbene non siano mancati momenti lenti e qualche riferimento a libri già letti.

Innanzi tutto, il rapporto tra Lenorre e Kassandra si approfondisce e, nonostante le riserve della seconda, si fa importante. Naturalmente, spunta il cliché di lei che ha paura di impegnarsi e dell'altra che vuole di più, ma è disposta ad aspettare. Il tutto

Overall: 3

Definitely better than "Witch Wolf" but I still found some rather big plot-holes. The narrative wasn't as erratic and jumbled as with the previous book, although at times it still got confusing. There were some good tries at humor - nothing to make me laugh but they did bring a smile to my face. I would say Winter's writing has definitely improved. There is a certain variability to her description that wasn't present before and the descriptions themselves are more numerous. There is st

Synopsis: “I stared down at the lifeless body of a boy whose face was all too familiar…”

Following the execution of Lukas Morris, Preternatural Private Investigator Kassandra Lyall told herself that she’d learn more about the local werewolf pack’s Alpha female Sheila Morris. Just as she begins her investigation, she’s interrupted by a phone call from friend and ex-colleague, Detective Arthur Kingfisher. The body of a sixteen-year-old boy has been found. It’s not just any sixteen-year-old boy, it

Kassandra gets sucked into a case she never wanted...someone she knew has been murdered. Timothy was a kid she ran into during her last investigation and she tried to warn him away from her world, but he obviously didn't take her advice and paid the ultimate price. The more she finds out, the more it leads to her lover's people, and she doesn't like that. However, the Count of Counts has made no friends in the vampire community and everyone is out to take him down. In the meantime, Kass is findi ...more

A wonderful addition to the series

This book would not let me put it down. The news love interest was a surprise but a welcome one.

Like Witch Wolf, this was a fun, easy read. I enjoy the characters so much. I was disappointed with the villain in this who I felt was written cheesily at best and I was quite irritated that his entire appearance in the book was read in a single page despite supposedly being so bad ass.

Despite that, the book was super enjoyable and I am reading the third one right away. ^^

It got tedious quickly. The sex between the two main characters didn't really work for me, and I did not like how the main character seemed blessed with every super power they could load her down with. The first book gave her just a few one-ups, but there is such a thing of giving a character too many shiny abilities. Made it boring.

Overall, the author is fairly talented. While I don't like this story, give her novels a shot. There aren't many out there writing urban fantasy for lesbians, and Wi

I liked the first book by this author, and I like this one even more. This is a must-read if you are a fan of the paranormal genre. Lots of action, well-developed characters and unique enough that it stands out among the flood of were/vampire story lines. I'll be happy to read more from this writer.

I've enjoyed this series and look forward to more. This book has a lot more sex in it than the previous one (I'm not complaining, it was hot!) in the series, Witch Wolf. It's entertaining. The world reminds me a bit of Jim Butcher's Dresden novels.
Evie Lawlor
This book kept me hooked all the way through,it also wasn't allowing me to guess what was going to happen next.
I had to sit there and continue reading in order to find out what happened it was amazing.
I would recommend to people who love lesbian fiction.

Masih mempertahankan stiker 'Vampire yang lumayan asik' di sini, jadi saya nggak punya keluhan.
Selain bahwa flag Rosalin bakalan EMO, dan masalah wolf-pack ini berbau masalah gede selanjutnya...

It was ok.

But for me it was the usual formula of vampire/werewolf with a pinch of fairies thrown in for good measure.

Maybe I just reached saturation point with the genre.

Kristina
It is a relief that is does not follow what books usually go through. I like how the characters grow and change in unpredictable ways.
Janet
Really great read - I totally loved this. Super hot and steamy sex scenes.
