Book Description

Archaeologist Zoe Miller has been running from a haunting secret her whole life. But when her cousin is abducted by a vicious Russian kidnapper, Zoe is left with only one option: to reveal herself.

Unknown to even her closest friends, Zoe is not entirely human. She’s a werewolf and a daughter of the “Fangborn,” a secretive race of werewolves, vampires, and oracles embroiled in an ancient war against evil.

To rescue her cousin, Zoe will be forced to renew family ties and pit her own supernatural abilities against the dark and nefarious foe. The hunt brings Zoe to the edge of her limits, and with the fate of humanity and the Fangborn in the balance, life will be decided by an artifact of world-ending power.

Zoe’s mission takes her and her friends across the globe on a frenetic quest for no less than Pandora’s Box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good. Entertaining, and reasonably well written. March 11, 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Hadn't heard of this author before getting a chance to read this book, and the werewolf genre tends to be more my wife's thing than mine. But I finished the book in two days (and it's not exactly a quick read, it's a decent-length book). It was a good story. The book was entertaining. I suppose it could have been a bit more polished: Cameron is a new author, and while not bad, the book doesn't flow as easily as some similar fantasy/sci-fi works I've read. I'm guessing that'll improve with additional books. I certainly couldn't do any better.

As a scientist (a biologist, in my case), I liked the small but important bits of academe that got incorporated into the text (the Sus scrofa reference made me smile). As expected, it was a little heavy on mythology, which I found interesting. A little dose of reality helps ground fiction to the real world.

The book started a little slow, but it definitely had its exciting moments.

Anyway... it was worth my time, will probably be worth yours, and I expect we'll be seeing more of Zoe Miller and the Fangborn in the future. I'm looking forward to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Werewolf Zoe and the Search for the Lost Thingamajig March 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)

"Seven Kinds of Hell" is the first novel in Dana Cameron's planned "Fangborn" fantasy series. The Fangborn are supernatural creatures that come in three varieties: werewolves, vampires, and oracles. Magically compelled to fight Evil, the Fangborn have guarded humanity throughout the ages. Twenty-something werewolf Zoe Miller knows little about her heritage because her mother has, for her own reasons, always kept Zoe hidden from the Fangborn. With Zoe's mother dying, however, the Fangborn -- and others who know about the Fangborn -- begin closing in on Zoe. Some want to help her, but most want to use her. The immediate threat is Dmitri, a Russian gangster who kidnaps Zoe's cousin and demands that she acquire an artifact from an insane collector in exchange for her cousin's life. The quest to free her cousin leads Zoe to London and then to Venice, the Greek Islands, and beyond. She is hunted at every step, not knowing whether she can trust anyone, even her ex-boyfriend Will. Moreover, what begins as a mission to get hold of an insignificant figurine soon turns into a search for one of the most feared objects in Greek mythology: Pandora's Box.


My original working title for this review was "Junk Food for the Werewolf-Lover's Soul." Sometimes we crave junk food, and junk food is often better than nothing. I'm not going to praise the book, but I will say that the story moves quickly, there's plenty of action, and the idea of the Fangborn is one of the most oddball takes on werewolves and vampires that you're likely to come across. Fangborn vampires, for example, are *good* by nature, they *thrive* on sunshine, and when they manifest their vampire selves, they shapeshift into *snake* form.

2.0 out of 5 stars Messy! March 24, 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Oh my, this was a messy muddle of a book! I really wanted to love it. I enjoy urban fantasy and I absolutely love archaeological adventures - even with a paranormal angle. But this was a mess.

In reality, it seemed like a couple of books mashed together.

First - the archaeological book. It sort of reminded me of those old Elizabeth Peters books - not Amelia Peabody - more like Vicky Bliss. There's a search for the literal Pandora's Box. There's a round the world chase following clues and finding archaeological treasures with people trying to stop our heroine - or kill her.

Then - the Urban Fantasy. Um...just having werewolves and vampires (non-traditional) does not an urban fantasy make. Instead of a butt-kicking heroine, we get Zoe who runs away from problems and has the personality of a doorpost. As for the sexy hero - he's not that sexy. In fact, I liked the easily influenced milquetoast best friend better than Zoe's love interest with their passionless passion. And instead of an urban fantasy world that seems like it actually went through a world building process, we get the usual - some paranormals want to come out to the humans. Others don't. One evil human wants to be a paranormal. If you've read any urban fantasy, you've read it before and better.

The relationships were messy. I didn't know who was working for whom or why. And some of the best characters were the minor ones like Danny.

I confess, it was a struggle for me to finish this book. It was the archaeology that got me through.

Unfortunately, I don't think I'll continue with this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Archaeological Thriller in Supernatural World March 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I devoured this book in a day. I liked the characters, and I'm really looking forward to getting to know them better in future installments in the series. Zoe is just learning about the extent of her abilities, and I think that will be really interesting to read about too. This book follows Zoe on a whirlwind tour of London & Europe in an adventure reminiscent of Indiana Jones or maybe a Dan Brown or James Patterson hero. I liked the realism of the travel in Europe and the scientific aspects of the archaeology interspersed with the story. I thought the descriptive elements were nicely balanced with dialogue. Of course, one of the best things about this book is the unique take on the werewolves & vampires that goes against most of the cannon that is out there. I don't want to spoil anything, though, so I'll leave it at that. Enjoy!
