Release Day Review: Denied by Cathy Clamp

The thrilling stand-alone conclusion to the paranormal fantasy Luna Lake series, packed with action and romance

Cathy Clamp's landmark, USA Today bestselling Sazi series concludes with Denied, a thrilling paranormal love story.

Anica Petrovic was once human. Now she's Sazi, a bear-shifter and a hero for destroying a European kidnapping ring that was turning human children into shifters. Anica has embraced her Sazi self; and is settling into Luna Lake with her father and brother, happy to live in a shifter community where all are welcome. Love is in the air between Anica and a mysterious newcomer, Tristin, and between Anica's brother and Scott, an owl-shifter who worries about his family's reaction when they scent his attraction to another man.

A series of violent murders rocks the town. The killings appear to have been done by a bear. Anica's super-sensitive nose tells her Tristin, also a bear-shifter, is innocent of the murders...but that he's hiding something dangerous.

I was really looking forward to this book after I finished reading the previous two in the Luna Lake series. However, it did not live up to my expectations. Denied is unfortunately my least favorite book in the series. The main reason is that I couldn't connect to the main characters. I didn't really find anything likable about them. Which made me not care what would happen to them. Also there was a lot going on, which made it difficult for Anica and Tristan's relationship to grow. 

However, I did love all the action and mystery in the book, it was more Urban Fantasy than it was a Paranormal Romance. The story was original and I was intrigued at the beginning, but I lost interest further into the book. I did finish it to see what would happen, but at the end it felt unfinished and I was not satisfied. I think it would've been better if there was a sequel to Anica and Tristan's story.

Hi, I’m USA TODAY and Nielsen Bookscan bestselling author Cathy Clamp. I write urban fantasy/paranormal romance for Tor Books, including the Tales of the Sazi (shapeshifter urban fantasy romance) series, The Thrall (vampire) trilogy, the Blood Singer (urban fantasy, as Cat Adams) series—through book 6, and the new Novels of the Sazi series, beginning in August, 2015.

I’ve also written several stand-alone novels, not in series, including my very first novel, The Road To Riches, an historical fiction about a railroad race in Colorado’s Silver Boom period, and Magic’s Design, the first urban fantasy published as Cat Adams.

I also write short stories, which is a whole different kind of writing.. I like writing in a lot of different genres, and it’s in short stories where I let my wings spread. I have published short stories in horror, science fiction, mystery, literary, Young Adult, romance, thriller, fantasy and western.

I live in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, which actually looks like mountain range that runs across the center of Texas. In geologic terms, a “mountain” is generally considered to be a minimum of 2,000 feet elevation. Anything below that is a “hill”. So, Texas has hills, instead of mountains. (But you’d barely notice the difference!)
