A Bit of Bite review

A Bit of Bite is a short novella by Cynthia Eden. It was originally part of the Entangled anthology and Eden recently posted it as a free short to the various retailers.

As usual, Eden brings us strong, relatable characters in Ava and Julian. As a very short novella, the relationship between the two characters isn't particularly developed but the chemistry between them is pretty apparent even in such a short story. The action is where this story really excels, in my opinion. Eden managed to pack a great deal of it into this story, making it very fast paced and exciting.

My only complaint was that it felt like it needed just a little more background about Ava's past - it's something that is only mentioned in passing and I would have liked it to be fleshed out a little more. However, as A Bit of Bite was originally written for an anthology, I realize Eden was working under incredibly tight length restrictions so it might have been impossible to add anything more to the story.

If you like short novellas and want a quick paranormal read, I'd recommend A Bit of Bite.


A killer is stalking the streets of Crossroads, Mississippi, and it’s up to Sheriff Ava Dushaine to stop him. But when suspicion falls on werewolf alpha Julian Kasey—Ava’s ex-lover and the man who still haunts her dreams—Ava knows that she’ll either have to prove his innocence…or watch the whole town go up in flames.

Originally part of an Entangled anthology.
