FERAL NIGHTS

"The world building of were-creatures and other supernatural beings in this urban fantasy is so strong, readers will be seeing shapeshifters all around them. Descriptions of the 'normal' above-ground versus the unsavory underground our heroes get caught in parallels nicely with the reality of different worlds existing next to us but invisible to us."

—Bay Views, the review journal of The Association of Children's Librarians of Northern California

"Smith’s blend of supernatural suspense, campy humor, and romantic tension is addictive; allusions to both pop culture ('Thriller,' Monty Python) and literature (The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Most Dangerous Game) add to the fun. Most satisfying of all, Aimee and especially unassuming, injured Clyde leave their sidekick roles behind to come into their own."

—The Horn Book

"Smith’s fantasy smoothly switches between the three protagonists’ perspectives, while expertly blending the mythical and the modern. The story’s sharp banter and edgy plot make for an entertaining and clever story about loyalty and reconciling differences."

— Publishers Weekly

"sexy, fast-paced...ending that satisfies and should win her many new fans."

— Booklist

"...dialogue that sparkles with wit, filled with both literary and pop-culture references. ('You’re saying that you and my sister perform exorcisms on vomiting children with rotating heads?')...playful, smart tone."

—Kirkus Reviews

"Campy humor is paired with themes of social justice in this fast-paced, clever second volume in the Feral series....A neat, smart middle novel that clearly sets the stage for an epic showdown between those who champion the rights of shifters and those blind to their humanity."

-- Kirkus Reviews

"...as kooky a cast of supernatural characters as ever...but they're all relatable in various ways and easy to root for. Debut character Kayla-level-headed, religious, but also quietly proud of her shifter nature-holds her own, nicely complementing Yoshi's swagger, Wild Card shifter Clyde's newfound confidence, and human Aimee's resourcefulness."
