Silver Kiss
by Naomi Clark

Ayla Hammond has come home.

After years as a lone wolf in a self-imposed exile she's rejoining the pack and trying to mend fences with her parents. She's convinced them to accept her girlfriend, but can a lone wolf change her ways?

As if homecoming wasn't hard enough, Ayla also can't help getting involved in a missing person case. With pressure to solve the case mounting from the pack alphas, Ayla is starting to question where her loyalties lie - and if a return to the pack she left behind is really what she wants.
My review guidelines can be found HERE.

  • Nicely Abstract

  • Werewolves

  • F/F

  • Easy read, could safely be a young adult book

  • 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

  • Repetition of details caused an urge to skim

  • Lacking depth on the social/sexual interaction of the werewolves, light love scenes and vague references

  • Curiosity propelled me to the end, through slightly predictable plot twists

  • Feels like a TV episode, could be books before and after

  • Compelled to read further into the series in hopes that the gaps would be filled in (This is the first book in the Urban Wolf series)

I received this book through a contest on Sidhe Vicious Reviews.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Tux!


I like this one as well. Gah, when she has to fight another wolf all drugged up - I was sitting on the edge of my seat.

After visiting Naomi's website, it looks like she is just starting to work on Bad Dogs - the next book in the Urban Werewolf series.

Thanks for sharing the review Miranda. I like the concise format. I'm not real good with predictability in novels so not sure it would be one for me.
But good that it propelled Tux to read on.

Thanks so much for delving into my head. It's scary in here sometimes, so it is nice to have company! Don't step on the zephyr...
