Review of Coveted by Shawntelle Madison



For werewolf Natalya Stravinsky, the supernatural is nothing extraordinary. What does seem strange is that she’s stuck in her hometown of South Toms River, New Jersey, the outcast of her pack, selling antiques to finicky magical creatures. Restless and recovering from her split with gorgeous ex-boyfriend, Thorn, Nat finds comfort in an unusual place: her obsessively collected stash of holiday trinkets. But complications pile up faster than her ornaments when Thorn returns home—and the two discover that the spark between them remains intense.

Before Nat can sort out their relationship, she must face a more immediate and dangerous problem. Her pack is under attack from the savage Long Island werewolves—and Nat is their first target in a turf war. Toss in a handsome wizard vying for her affection, a therapy group for the anxious and enchanted, and the South Toms River pack leader ready to throw her to the wolves, and it’s enough to give anybody a panic attack. With the stakes as high as the full moon, Nat must summon all of her strength to save her pack and, ultimately, herself.


I'm not sure where to start... I adored this book.  This was an incredibly riveting read.  My soft spot for all things werewolf aside, this was a must read.

The main character was so flawed and believable, you couldn't help but love her.  She is a mess, but trying to turn her life around.  Her illness has caused her to lose her place in the pack and now she is treated like an outsider, a weak link.

The supporting characters were well written and creative.  There were wizards, necromancers, zombies, succubi, goblins, warlocks and muses just to name a few of the many characters.  Of course, there were lots of werewolves as well.

Gosh, the plot was also good.  I was guessing until the very end, but enjoyed the entire story.  I wasn't so fond of the doomed romance with bad boy Thorn, but it worked.  Thorn is yummy. 

This was a fast paced read that I highly recommend for any adult paranormal fantasy lover.  Due to sexual situations and adult themes, it is not suitable for young adults.  The sequel Kept, will be out soon and I for one can't wait.  I give this fascinating read five glittery stars:)
