Kayla Steele is your average girl; she works at a cosmetics counter in a big chain-store, has a small apartment and a boyfriend who doesn't always keep his appointements. Normal, right?

Wrong. When Karrel Dante misses the most important dinner (the "proposal dinner", of course) of his girlfriends life, Kayla's life changes completely. Suddenly there are people after her... people who grow fur, have sharp teeth and just won't stay dead. It seems her boyfriend Dante was more than he let on...

Well... the story was okay, I guess, but there were way too many characters and a lot of POVs. Not to mention the end was pretty confusing with all the backstabbing done by the assorted villains in the numerous cast.
The supposedly main character didn't have that much air time and I thought that she didn't really grow much in 400 pages. Why? Because many of these pages were filled with scenes of other characters (sometimes pointless scenes). Bad guy A is doing this; Bad guy B is doing that; at the same time, Hero B is doing such stuff. Villain 123 is getting high in a corner and/or comitting random acts of violence.

With so many POV switches I couldn't really connect with any character in particular. I even question why this is a "Kayla Steele" novel instead of a "Ninette" novel or a "Harlem the werewolf" novel. It's great that we have input from other characters, but I think that if you have a main character you should stick to her. Mostly.

Still it had a good premise, if not entirely original. Also the writing style was okay. ( )

Bland and slow, this book was very difficult for me to finish. I just never really cared much about the characters or what was happening to them. ( )

This would not be a book that I would highly recommend. After 102 pages it has been less than 24 hours, and the entire story was dragging. I was very discouraged by this book, because I have been waiting so long for my chance to read it. I don't think that I will be writing off the author, but this is not the series for me. ( )

Dante's Girl, by Natasha Rhodes, is a surprisingly exciting dark fantasy novel.

When Kayla's boyfriend is brutally murdered, she soon finds herself chased by the same killers. And she begins to realize that he kept a lot of secrets. When Kayla decides to track down his killers, she soon discovers a world of monsters that she never knew existed. Kayla decides to team up with the Hunters, but there's a traitor in the midst.

This was a fast-paced, action-packed, fun beginning to an exciting series. With more violence than most vampire/werewolf novels laced with romance, I thoroughly enjoyed the complex storyline and intriguing characters. I recommend this one to all fans of darker fantasy, action, and horror genres. ( )

Kayla Steele's life changes suddenly when her boyfriend dies. She finds that her boyfriend wasn't dealing with animals but dealing with Werewolves and now she's a target.

It's a story that could have been pared down a bit and would have been better. There was sometimes too much going on and too many characters popping up and while it wasn't a bad read, it wasn't a great one either. ( )
