Review: Kiss of the Silver Wolf

Kiss of the Silver Wolf Kiss of the Silver Wolf by Sharon Buchbinder
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Different and dazzling, new to me author Ms. Buchbinder pulls me into her Kiss of the Jinni Hunter Series. This is the first book and it is a short and easy read. This book lays the foundation of the mythos Ms. Buchbinder is creating. In this world, there are shifters and there are "others". These others are from a different world and they happen to be evil and what is considered a Jinni.

These Jinni or as many people know as "genies" are not the sexy fun ones from I Dream of Jeanie. Instead, these are demon like creatures who enjoy raping and violating innocence. When Charlene Johnson's life is turned upside down, she enters this supernatural world. Ms. Buchbinder does a nice job of blending medical science skepticism with old world superstitions. Intermixed with this is a government agency who is only interested in finding out the truth. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, watch out! The threat is not from above but across dimensions.

This story may be a bit short, but it packs in quite a bit of information and ground work. The pace is nice and fast. The conflicts do feel a little contrived because of a group deliberately keeping information from Charlene. Still, it adds to the overall suspense of the book and ends with a bit of a hook. After reading this book, I want to read the next book immediately. Recommended to paranormal romance readers who like stories about shifters and jinni.
