Book Description

Abandoned at birth by her werewolf mother, hired as a teen by the NYC vampire council to kill rogues, Secret McQueen’s life careens between the undead and howling at the moon. When an enemy from her past returns, she is forced to call on every ounce of her mixed heritage to save herself—and everyone else in the city she calls home. Then there’s the slight problem of werewolf king Lucas Rain, who seems to think they share some sort of destined soul bond. Too bad she’s attracted to his second in command.

About the Author

Born and raised in the Canadian prairies, Sierra Dean is allowed annual exit visas in order to continue her quest to steadily conquer the world one city at a time. During the cold Canadian winters, Sierra indulges in her less global interests: drinking too much tea and writing urban fantasy. Something Secret This Way Comes is Sierra’s first published title.

Secret McQueen is a Werewolf/Vampire hybrid. She was abandoned by her werewolf mother, raised by her witch grandmere, and is now on the vampire tribunal payroll. When not bounty hunting for the vampires, she works with her partner and mentor Keaty. Secret abhors werewolves and chooses to keep her werewolf side a secret (no pun intended.) She is feared by most vampires, apart from Alexandre Peyton. Six years ago, Peyton nearly killed Secret in a botched assassination attempt that left Peyton with only one fang. It has been status quo for the last six years until one fateful night, Peyton makes his return known. Secret must stop Peyton from completing his plan to rule the world *bwahahaha* or at least New York City.

I read this book quickly. For me, this usually means it is at least a 4 star book. There was a lot if action, which I love in an UF. I liked the supporting characters of Keaty and Holden. The story line in general was solid.

So why give it 3 stars you ask? Because it was very reminiscent of Anita Blake and the maneuverings of the love triangle felt contrived and shallow. I was disappointed as this book has pretty good reviews overall.

I want to continue on with the series, but I'm not sure if I can stomach the romance. In this book, it felt like it was just airlifted into their individual scenes. I will have to stew on it a bit to see if the promise of the next installment will be alluring enough to keep me going.

There were three reasons I picked up this book: it was free; there were 27 positive reviews; and I had nothing else to read. Unfortunately there were many more reasons why I didn't enjoy it. If you are one of these people who was initially introduced into Urban Fantasy by Laurell K. Hamilton's wonderful series about Anita Blake and then after about book 8 realized that you were reading a thinly veiled porn - well you are not going to like this book. Where Anita Blake was a vividly drawn character that was ruined by the author going off the deep end - Secret McQueen lacked even that.

Here we have a 22 years old hot blonde half-breed with super hero complex working as a bounty hunter in the New York's supernatural community and waging a personal war on its vampire population. She is uncomfortable with both her Vampire and Werewolf heritage but chose to work with the Vampire Council to 'legally' exercise her rage on the rogue vampires that threaten to reveal the supernatural world to the unsuspecting public. Then, if her life wasn't complicated enough, she encounters the Eastern States billionaire Werewolf King Lucas Raine and his trusty lieutenant Desmond and discovers there is more to her heritage and destiny then she ever suspected.

Sounds pretty good doesn't it? Well here's the major issue. Even if we put aside the fact that Secret is only 22 and is already considered the scourge of vampire community, and that pretty much everyone around her falls over backwards at how awesome and powerful she is - we learned absolutely nothing about Secret as a person. I learned that she gets horny (a lot) around werewolves, but who she is inside was completely omitted from the narrative. We got some background on her life, but it was flat and didn't add depth to Secret in my opinion.

The writing isn't technically atrocious, so it has that going for it. Only made it 7% of the way through before I had to stop--too much info dump, too much contradiction. Author states some things during the numerous info dumps that she then contradicts in the action. Had to stop reading when Secret thinks she's getting the hairy eyeball from a middle-aged lady because she's with a fella twice her age...well, maybe it's the blood she was covered in just a few paragraphs before and never (as far as the reader knows, at any rate) cleaned up.

Won from Sierra Dean!

Alright all, my gut reactions, you ready?
3.5/5 grade B-/C+ for my personal tastes

I have personal issues. You should know that by now if you follow me or my blog at all. There are very few things in books that turn me off. Two such things are cliffhangers--and triangles+. I was hesitant to start reading Something Secret This Way Comes, because I had heard, and read that there was more than one love interest. Still, the cover is badass, then I won a twitter contest and blam, I owned the book, and well, here I am.

Secret Mcqueen {Fabulous name by the way} is a hybrid that shouldn't exist. Half vampire and half werewolf, she is pretty strong and powerful, yet she is only twenty-two, and has a lot to learn. She has also only been hunting vamps and were's for the past six years (why then? I want to know a little more about why she left home, and started hunting vamps at 16 by herself)

I liked Sierra Deans's world and take on the supernatural. It was aptly described and fleshed out without being overly complicated or wordy. As a reader of a lot of Urban Fantasy books and Paranormal Romance, I appreciated that. The hierarchy's are clearly defined and it's easy to understand.

So saying, let's talk wolves. Yes...wolves...plural. The Wolf King is Lucas, his second in command is Desmond. They are soul bonded to each other, and REMOVED SPOILER FOR AMAZON
I'm not entirely sure what that means exactly, and it wasn't explained well yet, I imagine we will learn more later, but all I can picture is two hot male wolves vying for dominance and I'm all a flutter...I'm just sayin.
