Book Review: Cloaked in Fur

PictureCloaked in Fur, by T.F. Walsh (spotlight here!)

* * * * (4 stars)

Daci has a terrible secret – the time is rapidly approaching when she will become a full-blown wulfkin. At the same time, all she wants is to find a way to permanently join the human world and her beloved Connell. While she tries to find a way to take control of her destiny, a monster in the woods threatens everything and everyone she knows and loves, human and wulfkin alike.

Paranormal shapeshifter romance isn’t my usual reading, but this was a lot of fun. The characters are well-drawn as individuals, and even though the antagonists are pretty nasty, the author still gets you to sympathize with them. The setting, in the towns, forests, and mountains of the author’s native Romania, is vividly and beautifully described. The action, and Daci’s dilemma, grabbed me right from the beginning and didn’t let go until the end.

The ending leaves a few loose ends; this could easily be the first book of a series.

I did get frustrated with Daci’s inability to tell Connell the truth about herself, but that was a lesson that the character needed to end up learning the hard way during the course of the story. A few editing problems were also kind of distracting.

On the whole, Cloaked in Fur is a fast-paced, exciting story with characters I cared about in a beautiful setting.
