A slightly different werewolf story to the norm. Great characters, great story lines and great read well worth picking up to read.

First Bite is for me my first book by this author and certainly not my last. It's a paranormal tale about werewolves/changelings and magic. This is a very good introduction to what should be a very good series if this book is a taster of what's to come.
Neva has unwillingly been bitten by Meredith and is about to transform for the first time into a werewolf. She has seen first hand how dangerous werewolves can be especially those led by the thoroughly evil Meredith and is determined that she will not become a killing machine. Determined to end her life she jumps off a cliff but is seen by Travis - a natural born changeling/werewolf- and he tries to save her. Terrified of what she's become Neva unwillingly goes with Travis as he tries to teach her that she doesn't have to be a killer in order to survive. With her first change imminent it's important that she learn to trust Travis and learn from him.
Travis is a lone wolf and yet he feels strangely compelled to remain with Neva but danger is stalking the young couple. Meredith the woman who cruelly bit the unwilling Neva is following them. Determined to get Neva back in her clutches so she can perform a dark spell and consolidate her powers. Trying to remain hidden from her Neva and Travis will be in more danger then they can ever imagine.
I love books like this. An alpha hero with a heart of gold and a snarky heroine who stands up for herself. This book is chock full of humour and the writing flows really well. Interesting supporting characters and a villainess who is truly evil.
Although the book started with instant action I felt that the second half was for me when the writer truly got into her stride. It was a good mix of both suspense and romance but for me the humour was what made this a good read. I sincerely hope that there will be more books about these characters as I'd like to know what happens next and surely that's a testament to how interesting this story was. Well done Ms. Harper .

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First of all, this is not a story about werewolves. Travis is very clear about that: werewolves are Hollywood nonsense (he phrases it rather more forcefully), he and Neva are CHANGELINGS. But not the sort that we are familiar with, swapping places with human babies etc. etc. These are the sort of Changeling who turn into wolves when the moon is full, hold interior dialogues with their inner lupine, and so on.
With this rather forced renaming - it seems to be needlessly confusing to pick a term that already has a quite different accepted meaning in the canon of mythological beings - the author gets rid of our preconceptions of how werewolf/Changeling society works and learn the rules at the same time as our heroine Neva does. I can see the advantages of doing that, but in this case it all seems rather pointless, since the rules that she does set up are pretty similar to those of other authors (such as Patricia Briggs).
It is not a bad story; the main characters are reasonably likeable. Well, everyone glosses over Travis' casual thievery, because he "needs" the things that he steals...this leaves rather a nasty taste for me, because given the delapidated state of many of the things he takes, it is unlikely that their owners were wealthy - it seems probable that they also needed the things he casually takes (and often destroys)!
But the major irritation for me, whilst reading, is this: the story is told in a close 3rd person voice - we head-hop regularly between the thoughts of the two protagonists and their antagonist (and includes some other points of view as well), all of them are withholding major pieces of information.

Were tales abound, and I wasn't expecting anything too much of this one, and so ended up pleasantly surprised with the reveals in the tale, with the storyline and with the element of dark magic. The tale wasn't written around sex, or vice versa, which was refreshing, and even though it ended on a cliffhanger, I totally didn't mind and found myself looking forward to the next.

IMHO, female baddies can be so much more bad-butt than male buddies, and this one was particularly nasty and vicious. I liked that the female lead was noble, in total contrast to the baddie, and that she was still learning about her new self and her abilities as the tale ended. The romance certainly wasn't the most prominent element of the tale, but the leads felt solid and that they had a future together. There are a few more characters who were introduced and who will no doubt feature in future tales, but this wasn't their tale; dare I hope for a MM were romance in the next?

Overall, a good introduction to this series, and its ordinariness drew me in. I will certainly be reading the next in the series.

First Bite. The Dark Wolf Series. Dani Harper

Arc supplied via Netgalley
I love paranormal romance so went into this book eagerly. Its starts with Travis rescuing Neva and assuming she knows what she is. After some bickering and misunderstandings he starts to discover that whoever she's escaping from isn't good. He's known about Changeling Law all his life though and finds it hard to believe things are as bad as Neva says. He's a good man, I like him - it was clear he had some secret, some reason he was lone wolf, but he wasn't telling Neva about it and his plans at first were to teach her enough to live and then let her go. His wolf though... he had other plans. Anyway before they manage to do much Travis discovers people/changelings after them and after a few close calls realises that its Neva they want and not him. Then he learns she hasn't been exaggerating and that her past is dark and deadly, and Meredith with stop at nothing, certainly not at killing a few people , to get her back.
I liked Neva too, moral and resourceful, she was determined not to get drawn into Meredith's cruel games, but was risking her life trying to escape. She'd rather do that though that fall back to murdering on Meredith's command. Her wolf wants Travis too and though she's new, she helps Neva immensely. I could empathise with Neva. She's a good person trying to avoid being forced to do evil even though she risks her life. She's a great heroine, and excellent Mate for Travis even if neither realises it at first.
There's not a lot of sex here, but there is lots of sexual tension between Travis and Neva and when they do get together sparks definitely fly! Its hot and steamy, very sensual and meaningful.
