    Moon Called de Patricia Briggs (Larkken)
    Larkken: Strong female protagonist becomes involved with werewolves. The werewolf packs are organized differently, but the two series deal similarly with issues of independence and also draw in other supernatural beings.

    Slave to Sensation de Nalini Singh (rosamenz)
    rosamenz: top-notch paranormal romance written by an author with an equally good grasp of fantasy elements

    Kitty and the Midnight Hour de Carrie Vaughn (Usuari anònim)
    Usuari anònim: The Kitty series isn't quite as good as Wilks's Lupi series (in my opinion) but if you enjoyed one I think you're likely to enjoy the other. Both are urban fantasies with a werewolf theme. The Lupi series is well written with engaging characters in an interesting urban fantasy world, quite fast paced with some romance too :o). The Kitty series is good fun despite the occasional daft plot premise and unexplainable actions by characters.
    ps Patricia Brigg's Mercy series - starting with Moon Called - outshines both of these, but someone's already recommended that here so I had to make do with second best!

The book started off really strong. An air of mystery in the world-building, some steamy romance, and an engaging police-driven format. I barely put thr book down until I reached about halfway through. Then things started to slide into mediocrity in my opinion. Too much of the mystery was given away, and the romance sort of went from zero to sixty without enough of a real courtship/flirtation. But all in all, still a decent three star read. Except I had to downgrade it to two stars, because the fantasy and world building elements also started to flat to me, though that had a lot to do with personal taste. Everything became vague in an annoying and otherworldly way. The story started talking about a mysterious goddess, or "Her", and other realms, which wasn't concrete enough for my tastes, too wishy-washy, too wide in scope without any real detail. Although this story wasn't so much "alien", it had the sort of vibes alien stories do towards the end, if that makes any sense.

Anyway, if that sort of story IS your thing, you would probably enjoy this book. I do warn you that the end of the story is in a different end of the fantasy scale or genre than it seemed to be in the beginning, which you may find disconcerting like I did (sort of from urban fantasy, down-to-earthish, supernatural creatures out of the closet to otherworldly alien/religious influence).

I still am torn on my feelings about this book. It's not terrible but I was hoping for way better. Maybe I've read too many similar books? I much prefer Mercedes or Anita to this one.

Tempting Danger
3.5 Stars

In a world where humans and other species live side by side, San Diego Homicide Detective, Lily Yu, is called in to investigate what appears to be a werewolf attack. When the prime suspect turns out to be Rule Turner, the Prince of the local pack, Lily’s loyalties are suddenly put to the test as her connection to the enigmatic Rule goes far deeper than mere attraction.

A well written story and the plot has potential. Nevertheless, the romance is only so-so and the world building is oftentimes derivative.

Perhaps my impressions of the world building stem from reading numerous series in the paranormal genre. However, the overriding feel is that many of the elements have been done before by other authors such as Kelley Armstrong’s “Women of the Otherworld”, Sherrilyn Kenyon’s “Were-Hunters”, Nalini Singh’s “Psy-Changeling”, and particularly Nancy Gideon’s “Moonlight” books, which also focus on a police officer/werewolf relationship.

Nevertheless, the story and the characters are appealing. The interactions between the humans and members of the various other species, as well as the complex portrayal of lupi politics, is interesting with undercurrents of animosity, prejudice, and racism. The plot is also quite complicated with several seemingly unrelated threads that ultimately merge into one comprehensive storyline.

The characters, both primary and secondary, are fleshed out well with detailed back stories that hint at interesting things to come. Lily is a likable heroine and it is entertaining to watch her attempt to navigate the different parts of her life whether it be her job or family commitments.

Unfortunately, Rule is not as appealing at first. There are certain aspects of his personality that put him in danger of joining the anti-hottie harem. While most of these issues are mitigated as more details are revealed throughout the book, his initial characterization as a sexually indiscriminate and possibly irresponsible womanizer makes it difficult to view him as an acceptable love interest and this puts a pall on the romance.

All in all, a solid beginning to the series and I am eager to find out what happens next with Lily, Rule, Benedict, Curran and, of course, Grandmother Yu. ( )

This is the first book in the rather large World of the Lupi series. I have had this book on my TBR pile for awhile and was excited to finally read it. This started out as a solid investigative urban fantasy with overtones of paranormal romance. As the story continued though it got much more interesting; involving magic and other dimensions. I ended up enjoying it quite a bit.

Lily is a woman detective fighting to make her way in a predominantly male career. She has the added complication of being a sensitive, which means she can “read” items and people. This is an ability that is looked down upon but the department finds this skill useful so they kind of look the other way.

I enjoyed Lily and Rule as characters; they were fun to read about and have good chemistry together. The side characters were also well done. The writing is easy to read and flows nicely. All in all I was impressed and plan on continuing the series.

As I mentioned this starts out as a pretty typical paranormal read but then as the story continues higher magic and godlike beings enter the story making it incredibly interesting and a bit different from other reads out there.

Overall this was a fun read and I enjoyed it. This is an engaging and interesting first book in this series and I plan on continuing. I would recommend to readers who enjoy urban fantasy and don’t mind some crossover into the paranormal romance territory. ( )
