Shifter: City of Wolves is the first book in a paranormal romance series that features passionate romance, intensely real emotion, supernatural powers, and forbidden shifter love.
City of Wolves is a fairly unique twist on the classic shifter tale. Dystopian and shifters make it fresh. I liked the characters and really hated the world they lived in which is great for a dystopian. I loved the contrast of the dystopian twist on NYC. It made it more realistic I think because they referenced places I have seen and experienced.
However, City of Wolves just didn’t grab me for some reason. I can’t put my finger on it, but I just wasn’t hooked. I had no problem setting the book down and a lot of problems picking it back up. Again, City of Wolves is unique and combines that with well written heroes and villains; But for some reason, it didn’t really work for me. This might be a book I go back to later to see if I feel differently!
