    Something to Howl Aboutby Christine Warren

    Something to Howl About by Christine Warren Light hearted paranormal series opener. Full of humor, with much of it on the sarcastic side. Humor of the kind that doesn’t take it all so seriously. My favorite type of writing. I don’t know why I haven’t read this author before but will absolutely look for this new series as well as looking into the original of this spinoff. The below makes the town of Alphaville sound dark and sad but that was not at at my first impression. To me it is a town of rejuvenation, hope and understanding. I look forward to getting to know the residents. “Every shifter in America knew about the town. It was where they sent their problems, like an open air asylum for damaged Others. Shifters would couldn’t shift, or who couldn’t control the process. Ones with anger issues, or who had survived trauma. Even ones who needed to recover from grave physical traumas. And, of course, the outcasts. The ones who had been shunned by their packs, prides, clans, or family packs.” I received a copy of this novella from NetGalley.

    Paranormal Romance

    Something to Howl About by Christine Warren Alphaville 0.5 This story hit the spot for me today! Why? I have been reading tons of words in many books but wanted something lighthearted and romantic that was a bit different, well written and had the ability to take me away from where and who I am and immerse me somewhere else and that is just what this novella did for me today. At times I kind of wished I were a shapeshifter with a mating instinct and alpha male nearby calling out to my were-side so I could experience that immediate awareness and act upon it. And yet, I suppose I shouldn’t complain as I have 39.5 years of marriage with the same man under my belt at this point in life…guess I am well and truly mated even without that mating bite ;) Okay…back to the story. This was so much fun! An exiled female werewolf shows up at the request of her alpha to help out a group brown bears living in Alphaville. Her skills are needed to find out what is wrong with the werebear community and their seemingly low fertility rate/production of cubs. SHE knows immediately that one of the men she meets is her mate but her mate quickly draws back and is leery. With a bit of communication by both the hero and heroine with people they trust the two do eventually end up with their mated HEA and that, too, was fun to read! This book made me smile a lot. It made me care about the characters and community and then want to find out what comes next in this new series. I wonder if all the characters in Alphaville are misfits or not and just who lives there and why. This novella is written by an author I have enjoyed reading books by before and this one was just as much fun as others I remember reading by her. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Scientific Shifter Expert

    Alphaville is a refuse for shifters that have not fit in with the conventional pack hierarchy or for those that need a place to fit in. Annie has been banished from her pack in New York but has an opportunity back into the fold if she heads to Alphaville and help them with a unique issue. Having been on the road for three years Annie, who is a genius scientist of shifter genetics, will do anything to return to her pack. Introduction to some amazing citizens; Christine Warren is creating the start to a paranormal world of love and salvation. "A copy of this book was provided by St. Martin's Press via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." Looking forward to reading the next in this series "Baby I'm howling for You".

    Steam and wit

    This is my first read by Christine Warren and now I'm wondering how I've missed her. This well-written and fast-paced tale is easily read in one sitting and that's just what I did. I would've liked more of Annie's backstory, but the author does give enough to understand the character. I absolutely loved Jonas and his internal bickering with his bear as he struggles with the idea of a mate while trying to remain professional with Annie, and she was just as amusing with her scientific mind being thrown for a loop by the sexy bear. The storyline is intriguing and peppered with a bit of steam and some truly witty dialogue that kept me smiling and chuckling from start to finish.

    Excellent intro to new series

    I loved it! Alphaville is a loosely tied spin-off of the popular The Others series. Ms. Warren was on point with this "crossover" novella. It's not necessary to have read the other books first but there is very little world building in this novella. Here we are introduced to the town of Alpha, Washington, a.k.a. Alphaville, “home of the freaks, the losers, and the emotionally challenged.” The story features Dr. Annie Cryer, the brilliant scientist first introduced in Howl at the Moon. It was a quick and easy read. Very smooth transition to this new series. I highly recommend it. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
