Zoe is an archaeologist who is also a werewolf. All her life her mother has kept her hidden from her family and moved her around. She has few friends and little knowledge about her family past and background. When her mother dies various things happen which mean that Zoe has to get in touch with her bestial side which scares her and to link up with people she doesn't know who can introduce herself to her true nature.

This is an urban fantasy combined with a quest novel in the style of "The Da Vinci Code" but sadly it didn't work for me. The archaeological background was well done and I felt in safe hands with the author when she was exploring this part of the story but the supernatural aspect of the book and the way in which Zoe acts didn't ring true.

Zoe becomes aware that people are following her and she knows instinctively that they are the enemy but when she bumps into more people who also seem to know about her werewolf side she trusts them - I am not quite sure how she knows the difference. She also seems to bump into a lot of people who know about the secret supernatural world and those who don't know before the story are very accepting of it. The story centres around the Pandora's Box myth and at every step in her quest Zoe finds people who give her information about this and help her to find it - she doesn't actually do much in the way of research or discovery herself. I could just about grasp the kidnapping/quest storyline but as Zoe pursues the Box around the world this aspect of the story became sillier and more unbelievable.

I didn't like the way in which Zoe has little knowledge about her nature, the werewolf culture or the quest.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As urban fantasy novels go, this should have had a lot to offer; it had an interesting, fairly original premise, but...

Cameron writes well with an easy, flowing style and has a wealth of archaeological knowledge to put to use, but her plotting structure really doesn't work that effectively. This is paced as a thriller - which is a bit different from most novels of this type and the breakneck speed in which the action moves from the USA to London, Paris, Berlin, Italy and Greece while introducing characters who are part of an international, clandestine group of shape shifters called the Fangborn just seems over-ambitious. Not enough time is spent developing any of the characters or establishing the plausibility of the various factions involved; the ultimate task - which the heroine, Zoe has to fulfil - is the retrieval of Pandora's Box.
For me, the cavalry appeared - with no proper explanation given - just rather too often when Zoe required rescue; the Fangborn seem to have access to considerable resources for such a clandestine organisation and I had some trouble taking some of the shape-shifting stuff seriously - I know it`s fantasy writing but credibility is still a requirement - a wolf running around in shirt and knickers...really? Was it meant to be funny?
I wanted to like this and Cameron does have real writing ability, but this just tries to do too much in one novel; as the first book in a series a more gradual unfolding of Zoe's predicament would have been - I think - advisable. As it is, I found it a bit of a hurried, un-engaging morass; it lacked that compelling, "what happens next" factor as good ideas were too hurriedly introduced and under-explored. I didn't find myself caring much about Zoe, which rendered reading this rather a chore.

Others have liked this book, but I`m afraid I don`t feel the same way; maybe the next instalment will have surer footing, but this novel only gets a tepid "okay" from me.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Zoe Miller's life is a mess. She's mourning the loss of her mother, being hunted by the mysterious family her mother had always run from and trying to hide the fact she is a werewolf. When she is drawn to a small figurine to such a degree that she steals it, add to her problems her cousin's abduction for leverage to force Zoe to carry out a specific mission.

It appears Zoe has found a missing key to unlocking Pandora's Box, and if she wants to see her cousin alive again, then she has to travel to London and obtain another artefact using any means necessary. Along the way, Zoe has trailing at her heels useful friends, FBI agents, thugs and let's not forget her unknown father's family are still on her trail.

The pace of this book is hectic. Zoe's adventure has her zigzagging from one location to the next to uncover four figurines believed to be the keys to open Pandora's Box. She is also learning more of the Fangborn; a secret race of vampires, werewolves and oracles that she is a part of, yet Zoe proves to have abilities unknown in a werewolf Fangborn and she has an inkling as to why.

There is a strong fantasy element throughout the book. If Zoe isn't chasing after mythical artefacts in an Indiana Jones fashion, the Fangborn are making themselves known and displaying a variety of powers. I also liked the ideas surrounding Pandora's Box and that the Fangborn are the basis for a lot of the historical and assumed mythical images Zoe comes across in the archaeological world. There is a dose of romance; however this doesn't interfere with the frantic pace as Zoe bounces from one location to the next and leaving an increasing number of dead bodies along the way. I have only one gripe with the storyline. Every time a bad guy neared death or was in a dangerous fight, he would suddenly and conveniently throw vital information Zoe's way pointing her in the direction of the next clue.
