Between a three and a three and a half. In a lot of ways routine, not really original nor striking in its style or characterizations, but a fun, light, diverting read. I was never bored, and if romantic fantasy or urban fantasy is something you enjoy, I'd give this a try. At least instead of were wolves we get were-lions, panthers and dragons. That's different. And no vampires! It's apparently the first in a series but it works as a one-off. I liked it enough I could see giving this author another try some time. ( )

The Athens has a run-down facade, but a surprisingly loyal clientele. Then people start turning up dead in the parking lot....

With titles based on old truck-stop menu slang, a heroine who polishes her nails so she can check them to make sure she's not shifting accidentally, and a fire-breathing hero with a knack for short-order, what's not to like about this series? ( )

So I started reading a little before midnight, meaning to read a bit then finish it in the morning. And at 3 am I finished it... The first part was not gripping; I was mostly annoyed at these people and their problems and the way they kept analyzing everything to decide whether it was worth actually helping each other. But they grew on me - by the time Tom left (the first time) I was deeply engrossed. Though I did figure it was not Kyrie they found. And I strongly suspected what would happen at the end...helped by that fact that I knew there was a sequel, though that could have been just Kyrie, I suppose. And a unique shifter - hmm, call it ecology. Semi-genetic...I wonder what does happen to mixed-shifter children? And the beetles - eww. Their name was a big clue, too - though not really needed at that point. Anyway. Very good story and I'm glad I already have the sequel so I can read it...tomorrow. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Every one of us has the beast inside. But for Kyrie Smith, the beast is no metaphor. Since she was 15, when she first shape-shifted into a savage, black panther, Kyrie has questioned her humanity. Although she's learned to keep her inner beast secret most of the time, the panther occasionally emerges to strike unbidden. Terrified she'll hurt someone, Kyrie moves from town to town, searching for a way to feel human again." "Kyrie's lonely life changes while she's waitressing at a cheap diner in Goldport, Colorado. Investigating frantic screams from the parking lot, Kyrie stumbles upon a blood-spattered dragon crouching over a mangled human corpse. The dragon shape-shifts back into her coworker, Tom, naked, dazed and unable to remember how he got there." "Thrust into an ever-changing world of shifters, where shape-shifting dragons, giant cats and other beasts wage a secret war behind humanity's back, Kyrie may find the answers she seeks - with help from Tom, a mythical object called the Pearl of Heaven, and her own inner beast."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
