I liked this book. It was a pleasant read from start to finish in terms of writing style and plot, with enough mystery to keep me turning pages. I didn't care too much for Elise although I sympathized at times. What I found most surprising was the characterization of the males - nothing was too over the top, though I did find it overall a bit lacking.

It was disappointing to learn that these werewolves don't deal with mating quite as seriously as one would imagine. From the way I interpreted the writing it's entirely possible to cheat on a mate or fall out of love with them. Attration between Elise and Ryne, seriously? Definetely different from other stories I've read in the past dealing with "werewolves" or "shifers".
Inner City starts out with Callen in his own seemingly small world that expands enough to make him question everything he knew as truth. From the first page, the author's prose style captured and held my interest while creating a believable fictional world (that could very well be our own one day). This was an enjoyable read although the pacing towards the middle did slow down a bit. It picked back up during the last third of the book in which the suspense, drama, and climax all led to a satisfying ending.
