Booklist Review: "Smith takes readers back to the universe of the Tantalize quartet with this sexy, fast-paced new novel. The disappearance of werecat Ruby Kitahara, an unsolved mystery from the Tantalize books, resurfaces as a plotline here. Ruby's younger brother, Yoshi, finds himself without a permanent address and heads to find her in Austin, Texas, unaware of her disappearance. He learns that Ruby is suspected of the murder of a werearmadillo named Travis, and plenty of shape-shifters want to question her about it. Not least of them is Clyde, a former Tantalize sidekick now turned leading man. While Smith's regular readers will enjoy the references, familiarity with the first series is not necessary to enjoy this one. The story is told from Yoshi's, Clyde's, and love interest Aimee's alternating viewpoints, keeping the characterization strong as action shifts between the three leads. Ruby's story disappears midway when an abduction story line comes to the fore, which is distracting, but Smith gets the book back on target for an ending that satisfies and should win her many new fans.--Dean, Kara Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Smith kicks off a spinoff series to her Tantalize books with a noirish adventure featuring shape-shifting werepeople old and new. Eighteen-year-old ladies' man (well, werecat) Yoshi, the younger brother of Ruby Kitahara (last seen in Tantalize), travels to Austin, Tex., in search of his missing sister. Upon arriving, Yoshi learns that Ruby is the prime suspect in the murder of Travis, a werearmadillo whose ghost haunts his nerdy friend, Clyde ("My werepossum metabolism usually keeps me warm enough, but Travis's spiritual presence has a chilling effect. Like a ghostly mini air conditioner," Clyde quips). Clyde, still recovering from injuries incurred in Smith's Blessed, wants to avenge Travis's death, but the unlikely trio of Clyde, his crush Aimee, and Yoshi are forced to unite when they are captured and taken to Daemon Island, to be hunted for sport. Smith's fantasy smoothly switches between the three protagonists' perspectives, while expertly blending the mythical and the modern. The story's sharp banter and edgy plot make for an entertaining and clever story about loyalty and reconciling differences. Ages 14-up. Agent: Ginger Knowlton, Curtis Brown. (Feb.)
