It's been a while since I read a book with just werewolves, and it was definitely refreshing. The author takes a new approach to werewolf packs and their alphas that I really liked. I also liked the central conflict within the novel. The way the new drug on the streets, Silver Kiss, was used to bring forth the conflict was very interesting. Not many Urban Fantasy novels bring something as dark as drugs to the center, and it was a very realistic problem.

You just have to feel for Ayla Hammond and her mate, P.I. Shannon Ryan. The couple have made the decision to move to Ayla's hometown. They've rented a so-so house and are trying to settle in. Shannon has to establish herself locally as a P.I., working initially from the couple's home, and takes on a missing child case that she'd really have preferred to turn over to the police. And Ayla has to go through a big ritual of being accepted back into her Pack, where Shannon can't be with her. Add to a ...more

Silver Kiss is a tale of a lone wolf who returns to pack life with her human lover. It would appear this is the second book in a series but it is a perfect stand alone book.

I like werewolf and shape shifter stories and this one did not let me down. I really enjoyed seeing the workings of pack life. The normalcy and every day worries between Shannon and Ayla was refreshing. The job and family stressors that is. Not the getting tangled up with drug dealing, kid (wolf?) napping, fight club running,
After cutting my teeth on the fifth book in this series, a story I gave 5 stars, I was excited to receive a review copy of Silver Moon.

Ayla and Shannon are fantastic characters. It’s nice to read about an established couple, they’ve been together 6 years, and even though they are solid, being a were-shifter and human couple that union is often tested. There are a number of side-characters in this story. Sous chef, Vince being one of my favorites.

This installment is full of mystery and suspense.

~Wolf Pack: Wolf Pack is a free downloadable EBook, however because of its short length I didn't feel I could justify devoting a whole post, so I decided to review both books together. While you don't have to read Wolf Pack and Silver Kiss in order, I highly recommend that you do.

~Cover Art: While I have no problems with Lesbian Werewolf Smut, the book doesn't actually contain that much smut, maybe a couple of scenes which were well written but completely organic to the narrative. You all know

Ayla has lived apart from her pack as a lone wolf for several years. After the murder of her brother, she has returned home with her human girlfriend Shannon to reconnect with family and pack. However, her homecoming proves to be more complicated than she anticipated. She expected to have to deal with pack intolerance regarding her sexuality, however she did not expect that she and Shannon would be thrown into the middle of a suspicious missing persons case involving a young werewolf.

Sigh why can't Goodreads and half stars? This is 3 1/2 Stars not 3.

As I sit typing my review, eyes straying to the spider crawling along my ceiling, thinking ‘people swallow 8 spiders in a year’. I began to think, how do I capture my experience as a reader reading my first first f/f urban fantasy? This was uncharted territory for me. M/F/M been there done that. M/M ummm, yes please. But F/F? Say what?! So I strapped on my big girl panties and ventured forth into the land of girl on girl love. Wa

Good literature makes you breathe the air of another world, feel all the pleasure and pain of another being, and stirs the heart. Naomi Clark’s Silver Kiss is such a novel.
Ayla Hammond had left her werewolf pack after the brutal death of her cousin, Adam. She has returned home to be with her family and is trying to become a community resource officer. In the meantime, she pays the bills by working as a cashier at a tattoo parlor called Inked. Shannon Ryan, her girlfriend, is establishing her PI

This novel takes place in a version of our world where werewolves live openly among humans. That concept was enough to draw me in at the start and it held my attention throughout. I finished the book in a couple of days, and it only took so long because I had prior commitments which forced me to put it down and socialise.

The protagonist is Ayla, a werewolf who's just returned to her hometown and the pack she left behind, bringing her partner Shannon with her. Immediately, Bad Things begin to hap

Some books wrap themselves up in the tropes of a genre like a comfortable blanket, and others seem to transcend genre and theme with their very nature. Silver Kiss is one of these. Labeled an "urban werewolf novel", it's the tale of Ayla, a werewolf, and Shannon, a human, trying to make a new life together as part of Ayla's Pack and family while they deal with the recent murder of Ayla's cousin Adam (which drew her back to the Pack in the first place) which may not be an isolated event.

(From my blog on wordpress, Word Vagabond: Reviews of Independent and Small Press Books.)

Ayla wasn’t looking for trouble when she moved back home after eight years. All she wanted to do was rejoin her werewolf Pack, get a job with the local police force, and start building a life with her human girlfriend, Shannon. Just a few months later, Ayla’s relationship with the Pack is strained to the breaking point, and she and Shannon are thrust deep into a world of drugs and kidnapping, and the Alphas

This story of werewolf Ayla and her human partner Shannon is centered around a mystery. Ayla, feeling rejected by her parents for being lesbian, has been away eight years. On her return with Shannon, her parents accept her, but they are disappointed that the two will not have children, as the werewolf birth rate is dropping--just as werewolves are able, for the first time in history, to live openly. Ayla is welcomed back into the Pack, which has its own responsibilities, she soon learns.

This was a really good werewolf story. In this world the existence of werewolves is not a secret. Instead the werewolves live side by side with humans, bringing on the expected anti-were groups. The story starts off with the main character Ayla and her partner Shannon moving back to Ayla's home, back to the Pack. Shannon starts a PI business and they get involved in a missing werewolf case. The plot then takes some interesting turns involving the drug Silver Kiss and develops into a suspenseful ...more

It was a good story, it had good suspense, family drama, action and werewolves. It was good, but there were things that I did not liked. There was a lack of "romantic" scenes and the ending felt like there was going to be more in it. The ending was good, but it did not exactly felt like a happy ending, it was just a good ending.

Overall: It was a good story, but she has to make a REAL happy ending, not one were you tell them that there will be more later on. Unless there's really a sequel.
Mini Review: Easy read, could safely be a young adult book. The focus of the story is not specifically the werewolf element and could easily be converted to a contemporary format with all paranormal elements stripped out.

Naomi's writing is strong, vibrant and engrossing. She creates complex characters with very human strengths and weaknesses; her world in Silver Kiss is well crafted and bound by clear set rules. She has a fresh and easy style that guides a reader quickly and effortlessly into her world.

An excellent page-turning read with a compelling plot, involving a lesbian werewolf and her estranged Pack, drug addiction and relationship dysfunction as well as romance. I really enjoyed the way Clark that draws her wolves and I looked forward to reading more of her work.

Naomi Clark lives in Cambridge and is a mild-mannered office worker by day, but a slightly crazed writer by night. She has a perfectly healthy obsession with giant sea creatures and a preference for vodka-based cocktails. When she's not writing, Naomi is probably either reading or watching 80s cartoon shows, and sometimes she manages to do all three at once.
