Author Christine Warren moves from her usual urban setting to the neon-lights of Sin City as the Others invade Las Vegas. Of course, according to her world, they have been there all along.

Kitty Sugarman is reeling from the truth about her background. What a way to find out that her dad is an Other than to shapeshift during a car accident! Her normal life as a librarian has done a 180 and she is headed to Las Vegas to meet the father she never knew existed. Under normal conditions, she would never have approached him, but she has to learn how to control her new abilities before she hurts someone.

Marcus Stuart is not looking forward to this babysitting detail. Unfortunately, Martin Lowe was calling the shots, and as his second-in-command, Max had to obey. Of course it gave him the perfect opportunity to size up this unexpected relative and see just what it would take to get rid of her. Martin doesn’t need another gold-digger after his millions.

He takes a very different view when strange accidents keep happening to Kitty. Someone is trying to scare her out of town, or worse. Could it be one of Martin’s other offspring, or his greedy ex-wife? Max doesn’t know but until he does, Kitty is staying close by.

The change of scenery really enlivens Walk on the Wild Side. The introduction of werelions is a welcome change and the characters are vividly drawn. The irony of Kitty’s name is not lost on the reader, and pops up to elicit a chuckle now and then. I am looking forward to the next book in the series even more than I was before.
