Nice story, good plot, interesting secondary characters, and few minor edits needed. Yes the relationship between the two main characters was rushed. However, that was a critical point of the storyline. They didn't have much of a choice, so they might as well enjoy it. I thought the villains needed some more air time. They appeared only in the background until the end, and I thought their lack of depth took away some from the story line. Some of the secondary characters and groups, wolves and other weres, would make for good stories. I found the murder story line and back stories for the groups interesting and like to see more of it in any future work this author does. Yes, I would buy the next book in the series, if there is one.
