“A smart, sexy, rip-roaring good time.”—New York Times bestselling author Angie Fox

“I’m obsessed with Shawntelle Madison’s fantastic urban fantasy debut, featuring hoarding werewolves, magic, and mayhem! More, please!”—Michelle Rowen, bestselling author of That Old Black Magic




For werewolf Natalya Stravinsky, the supernatural is nothing extraordinary. What does seem strange is that she’s stuck in her hometown of South Toms River, New Jersey, the outcast of her pack, selling antiques to finicky magical creatures. Restless and recovering from her split with gorgeous ex-boyfriend, Thorn, Nat finds comfort in an unusual place: her obsessively collected stash of holiday trinkets. But complications pile up faster than her ornaments when Thorn returns home—and the two discover that the spark between them remains intense.


Before Nat can sort out their relationship, she must face a more immediate and dangerous problem. Her pack is under attack from the savage Long Island werewolves—and Nat is their first target in a turf war. Toss in a handsome wizard vying for her affection, a therapy group for the anxious and enchanted, and the South Toms River pack leader ready to throw her to the wolves, and it’s enough to give anybody a panic attack. With the stakes as high as the full moon, Nat must summon all of her strength to save her pack and, ultimately, herself.

“If you like your urban fantasy original, quirky, and offbeat, this is the series for you. Natalya is the craziest heroine since Carolyn Crane’s Justine Jones, and you will love her just as much.”—Ann Aguirre, bestselling author of Devil’s Punch

About the Author

Shawntelle Madison is a Web developer who loves to weave words as well as code. She’d never admit it, but if asked she’d say she covets and collects source code. After losing her first summer job detassling corn, Madison performed various jobs—from fast-food clerk to grunt programmer to university Webmaster. Writing eccentric characters is her most favorite job of them all. On any particular day when she’s not surgically attached to her computer, she can be found watching cheesy horror movies or the latest action-packed anime. She lives in Missouri with her husband and children.

Coveted begins by jumping into the heart of Natalya Stravinsky. From broken promises to an in depth look at her strictly structured life Shawntelle Madison builds Nat's character and her unconventional lifestyle from page one. Nat collects holiday ornaments and etcetera that take over her home and solidifies her status as a low-ranking wolf. I thought it was going to be off-putting to read about a heroine who doesn't appear to be much of a heroine, but Madison gave Nat such a big personality that it was hard not to enjoy her story!

While I did enjoy reading the story, I didn't feel that it made too big of an impression on me. Madison constructed a world with strenuous relations between supernatural species that was familiar but also unique. What's holding me back from being undoubtedly in love with the novel is the pacing. I love that it was witty and serious in a complimentary manner, but the unfolding of events seemed slow, as though it was taking its sweet time to be revealed. It was great for laying out the gravity of Nat's situation, but I would have liked for the story to just get to the point as soon as possible. Madison's writing style as a whole is noteworthy, though. She made me feel for Nat in every situation throughout the novel. Nat was so aware of herself, even though she had a condition that pretty much controlled her life. She made strides to better her relationship with her family and learned to let others in. Madison gives enough to keep me interested in the way Nat's life will unfold in he future.

Coveted is only the beginning for Nat and I feel there's so much more to see from her. Kept, the next installment of the series, will be the perfect sequel to show the inner strength Nat has found deep within herself. She's definitely a character and one I'd love to see more of!

A new take on the whole being a werewolf saga. I first heard about this author via Kevin Hearne's blog during the 2012 SDCC. I'm so glad I was keeping up with his doings there as I probably wouldn't have found out about this awesome book anytime soon. I love how Shawntelle took a new spin on werewolves and made her main character a collector (in the words of Natalya herself) or in other words a hoarder of holiday decorations and ornaments. It really emphasizes the point that even supernatural creatures have the same problems and foibles that humans face in their lifetimes.

The writing and story itself were pretty good and basically on par with other first time authors. I'm confident that the next in the series (Kept) will be even better.
