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.

"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.

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.

I got a copy of this book through the Amazon Vine program. Thanks to Amazon for providing this book for review. This book sounded like an interesting start to a new urban fantasy series; I mean archeology and werewolves sounds kind of cool! It really wasn't that great of a book, everything about it was okay but not great.

Zoe has been on the run with her mother for her whole life from her father's violent people. When her mother dies, Zoe is looking forward to a new start at life. Then her cousin is kidnapped by someone, she thinks her father's people. As she tried to comply with Danny's capturs in order to facilitate his release she is drawn into an archeological quest to find the keys to Pandora's box.

I did not enjoy this book and almost didn't finish it. The storyline was all over the place, the writing was difficult to read and the characters didn't have much depth and were hard to engage with. I pretty much struggled through the whole thing.

Zoe is a very strange character. Supposedly she was raised running from place to place with her mother, living carefully and avoiding detection. When her mother dies you would think she would be careful, especially when she is followed by some of her "father's people" through the city. Soo....what does she do? She leads them right to her family and friends, because you know she spent her whole life did she not get caught ages ago if she is this horrible at hiding and sneaking around?

Additionally Zoe's background feels shallow and contrived. She never thought to question why her and her mom ran around hiding until now...when she is in her mid-20's; she just kind of accepted it. It seemed like a flimsy back story to me and made Zoe seem very 2D.
