"My box was missing."
The story begins with our heroine, OCD werewolf Nat, rushing home to get her beautiful figurine that has just arrived at her house. The problem is, when she gets there, someone who looks just like her has snatched her package.
For any other offense, Nat (who got kicked out of the pack because she isn't a very good werewolf) would have hung her head and let it go. But not this time. Oh heck no, you do not get between Nat and the antiques she collects. She will do anything- ANYTHING!- to get it back.
Along the way, she meets a three-headed dragon who is too big to leave his house, and whose heads alternately fall asleep or argue with each other, as well as some slime monster, both of whom want a picture of a certain antique before they'll give her stuff back. The antique is heavily guarded and Nat can't do this alone, so she teams up with her brother and his friend to get it back.
Honestly, Nat is one the few FMC's in Urban Fantasy that I actually like. In a genre where most of them have bad attitudes for no particular reason and are the best butt-kickers like, ever, it's nice to see a paranormal character that's more endearing and relatable. I also enjoyed her interactions with her brother- they both look out for each other, and again, characters with siblings they get along with is very, very rare in ANY genre. I usually get the impression whilst reading books that everyone is an only child or that siblings are the source of all their problems.
This is a short read, but very enjoyable. I've read the first two Coveted books, but it's not necessary to because this is set before they take place. So if you like werewolves, lovable heroines, and hilarious three-headed dragons (seriously he was the best part of the novella), then read this book.
