Wolf at the Door by Christine Warren

Very good paranormal. I am upset because this is the second book in the last two weeks that I have read that is in the middle of a series. Warren also writes for EC (along with Lora Leigh who wrote Megan's Mark that I read last week) and this book is in the middle of a series that she is writing for them too. The series in this book is called The Others, but at EC the series is called Fixed, and the books range from vampire to fairy to werewolf. This book actually reminded me of Moon Called in that the "Others (all the fae (i.e. brownies, gargoyles, gnomes, satyrs etc), weres, and vamps and such)" are debating over whether to reveal themselves to humans or not. I like this kind of storyline because instead of picturing it in an alternate Earth or another time and place, you get to think "well maybe, what if" for a second. This one was very good and I will have to break down and eventually get a couple of the other books in the series.

The story is about Cassidy Poe (Foxwoman - can shift into a fox, but it is a genetic/magic thing that runs through the female side of their line) and Sullivan Quinn (werewolf from Ireland). Cassidy's grandmother is on the Council of elders in America (made up of different weres, vamps and fae) and is grooming Cassidy to take her place (if she wants to or not). Quinn is visiting from Ireland to meet with the council as part of a liason from the European Council to discuss revelaing themselves to humans. The timetable for that may be drastically increased as one of a vamp's girlfriend is kidnapped by a religious group bent on revealing and destroying all the Others. Cassidy has doctorate in anthropology and is acknowledged by her peers as one of the best in her field. So the Council wants her and Quinn to investigate this religious group and try to find out as much as they can about them.
