    Did not suit my taste. It was a standard courtroom drama thing with supernaturals thrown in for effect. The blurb I saw did say Dresden meets CSI. I was hoping that the Dresden part of the offering would include more snappy dialogue, whimsical characters and some fun. Did not finish.

    Nope. The was as cheesy as, and I just couldn’t be bothered with it. The murder mystery angle might have been okay, but I just got so frustrated with the incalculable ways the author shoehorned L&O references, names, settings, etc., into this story. Sorry, I’m out.

Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start. Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believeable. Great suspense and action with wonderful world building that adds so much to the story. Can't wait to read more of these. Recommend reading. I read a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

This Claw and Warder book is obviously a tribute to the long-running TV show, “Law and Order”. I was never a fan, as police procedurals aren’t my cup of tea, and in all honesty, I can count the episodes I’ve seen on one hand. But it doesn’t matter! This book is that good. Vick is on point in his world building, characters, dialog, story and pace, as we’ve come to expect -- no, to delight in -- from him. This guy can do no wrong, his imagination and story-telling border on the supernatural themselves. Read this book and look forward to more from him with bated breath. DISCLAIMER: I received an advance reader’s copy of this book for no charge. This review is entirely mine and voluntary.

    An interesting premise. Using a popular TV show as the basis for an Urban Fantasy novel is an interesting premise but it quickly shows its limitations. One of the things I enjoy about Urban Fantasy is seeing unique and interesting characters brought to life on the page.

Staying in the framework of a Law and Order episode is fine, I just wished the author created new characters to fit into that framework. The pacing on the book was good, but I did find that later half of the book, which centered around the courts, dragged a bit. If you are a die-hard Law and Order fan and enjoy Urban Fantasy, you’ll want to check this book out. If not, then I’d suggest you pass on this.

    Seduction, Claw & Warder #1, is an fantastic beginning to a new series by Erin Henry Vick. The NYPD never looked liked this before. Two detectives trying to work a beat, one veteraned, one green as they come. They catch an open and shut case their first day out. The leads are followed. The suspect is apprehended. A confession is obtained. What could possibly go wrong? The author is a genious at twist and turns. The storyline is fast-paced, filled with intrigue, danger and subterfuge.

    Fine book. Enjoyed reading it. I've only seen the TV show Law & Order a few times, but enough to be familiar with the structure. Seduction: Claw & Warder #1 fits the format to a T. Liked the trio "cop" characters. The investigators are an interesting combo and I look forward to their future interactions; there's a lot of potential there. I really like the "lieu". Just the right amount of humor. The legal team seem to be finely tuned also. All-round a bang on start to what I expect to be a fun se Fine book. Enjoyed reading it.

    Very silly, but a great read The author of this book has obviously spent more than a few afternoons bingeing on Law & Order reruns. (Just like me) This is a fun mashup of L&O and modern fantasy that lets you envision a world where Lenny Briscoe is really a Hasidic werewolf and a bushy browed Jack McCoy is a literal courtroom magician.

    This is an interesting book, full props on creativity. I happened to write a courtroom story recently so it was fun to see how was done here. I found the courtroom debate itself a bit tiring, and the objections written about too much. The wolf character's Jewish heritage didn't make enough sense. Judaism comes through the mother. Why would the wolf be an orthodox Jew? I also had a hard time buying Dru's heritage or a department run by a ghost. The crime and plot didn't feel meaningful enough to m This is an interesting book, full props on creativity. I happened to write a courtroom story recently so it was fun to see how was done here.

    You can almost hear the “doink-doink” I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book. I figured it would be a nice distraction while I figured out what to read next. It was indeed that an so much more. If you at a fan of “Law and Order” or any police procedural and dark fantasy, this is the book for you.

    Hilarious, but tense This is quite the departure of subjects and settings for Erik Henry Vick. Sure, he's written about the supernatural before, but NOT like this! He pulls off a thin blue line style drama with a panache and flair that only he could muster. I found this book to be more than just an entertaining read. It was a breath of fresh air for the genre. Keep up the great work, Erik! Looking forward to the next episode! Hilarious, but tense This is quite the departure of subjects and settings for Erik Henry Vick.

    If you liked/loved the original Law and Order TV show, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this first instalment of a new series. Set in a New York with werewolves, witches, ghosts, and worse, the detectives are faced with a horrible crime. Did they get the right culprit, or was it too easy? Fast paced, intense, and some of Erik’s humour thrown in for good measure, I highly recommend this book!

    What fun, it's like watching law and order but with dupes. I even hear the music in m head. So, new detective into this high paced unit. The book jumps in to an existing precinct with existing personnel. Dry, the new detective, ends up with a claw, i.e. werewolf partner. Moves on fast. Ordered sequel.

    Really enjoyed this! I'm not much of a fan of the crime genre, but I did enjoy this book enough to stay awake most of the night to finish it. The characters are all very different, and very likeable. The whole paranormal world is extremely well-conceived. I think this is a great new series, and I'm getting the next book right now.

    When I first saw this book, I thought it sounded like Law & Order fanfic. I wasn't wrong, but honestly, that's part of the appeal. If you've ever wondered how Lennie Briscoe or Jack McCoy would appear in a modern fantasy world, now you know. It read like an episode of this AU TV show and I look forward to reading the others in the series. Go check it out! When I first saw this book, I thought it sounded like Law & Order fanfic.

    4.5! Funny, fast paced a lot like the TV series. But with supernaturals. My mind kept playing sounds and voices from the series while I was reading this! I enjoyed this story. Nothing epic like Erik’s Blood Of The Isir series but a great supernatural version of the Law and Order tv series. Worth the read.

    Humorous read cast like the TV show Law and Order (which I have never seen but the formula is clear). Our magical world has detectives and prosecutors as they each do their thing in catching our magical or mythical criminals. Great fun in a light read, often just what you want to read after a weightier read or anytime when you can't concentrate on something more serious.

    Must Read! If you like police dramas, supernaturals, humor or all of the above, then this is the series for you! Found it by accident and now I am hooked! Erik is an awesome writer and I would never have thought of a Hasidic Werewolf (tears, really tears from laughter)! Great book cannot wait to start the next one

    I loved this idea. I am a big fan of alternative ideas that parody what we already know. I could Lenny's voice. I could see the book adage show. But I do think that the Lieu was a bit too harsh. I do not think Victorians would have spoken that way even to succubus vampire. I think it was a bit out of character for the Lieu from the show. I loved this idea.

    This was a fun start to a salute to a favorite and long-running TV series with a supernatural twist. It's light fare but fun. While it is a fairly quick read you can see the writer has a lot of material he can work with. I read this one a while back and he's been cranking them out quickly since. Definitely worth sampling to see if you too like it! This was a fun start to a salute to a favorite and long-running TV series with a supernatural twist. It's light fare but fun.

    Yeah. Law & Order as supernatural detective show ("claw & warder," get it?). Decidedly meh for me. The homage to L&O, largely through the narrative construction and the tortured naming of characters, wears thin quickly. I do, however, like the idea of a Hasidic werewolf as world-weary & perennially lusty cop, as well as the Princess of Hell as his rookie detective partner. Not sure I'll dip further into this series.

    A werewolf and a mage walk innto a bar Supernatural Law and Order. Who would have thought it? I had a fun time reading this, trying desperately not to hear the imaginary music from the actual TV series. The book sticks too closely to the episode format , but having hinted at a much larger supernatural world some deviations would make the book better

    Detective Leery is a werewolf and Detective Dur is half succubus and half vampire. Together they make a great team. This time they had to figure out who exactly killed a nineteen years old Irishman who was visiting NYC. There was no romance and the F-bomb was used 15 times. As for the narration: George Newbern did a fantastic job on the voices and the emotions when he read.

    Funny What's the strangest combo of supernatural confluence you can think of? How about someone with Catholic and Hasidic background, but as a werewolf? And what the flex is a psychopomp? Add a dash of humor and a dollop of magic and you have a hell of a story. Funny What's the strangest combo of supernatural confluence you can think of?
