“The pack did its best to keep peace in the supernatural community and to keep their existence a secret from the humans. Psychics and witches may have found a way to coexist…exposing some of their powers to the mundane…but there was no way in hell people would be as accepting of a predatory species like his. He had to stop Macey from learning anything about the demons…and especially the werewolves. Keeping tabs on the sexy detective proved a nice bonus…”
Werewolves Only is the first book in the Crescent City Wolf Pack series by Carrie Pulkinen. It is a great paranormal romance- with shifters/werewolves, demons, supernatural elements, mystery, suspense, action, police investigation, and plenty of drama- all set against the vibrant and mystical backdrop of New Orleans.
Ms. Pulkinen is a ‘new-to-me’ author that I will definitely be reading much more of in the future. The story surprised me, because initially I thought it was a bit slow to start with, but I found that after a couple of chapters I was completely hooked and eagerly read the rest of the book. I had to find what happens and whether they figure everything out.
The story is told from several points of view, which I really appreciated, because it really gave the story much more complexity, and depth- and gave me so much more to contemplate.
The characters are interesting and well developed. I loved Luke and Macey!! I was cheering them on right from the get-go! There was a lot more to them, and the story, than meets the eye.
The story is quite suspenseful, with a real ‘mystery’ to try to unravel. There are funny moment- with witty quips/banter that made me smile. Then there were quite gruesome scenes that really ramped up the intensity of the story. Ms. Pulkinen effortlessly describes what was happening in the story, painting a picture in my mind, and making it more like ‘watching’ everything play out, instead of merely reading along.
I can’t wait to see what book two has in store for me!
Thank you, Ms. Pulkinen!
