New writeup from the
Jefferson County Public Library
Dani Harper is best known for her urban fantasy novels, particularly those featuring werewolves. Her novels balance suspenseful and complex plot development with attention to character and relationship development. Both protagonists and secondary characters are well-delineated, as are their relationships with one another.
Harper’s characters work to overcome well-described challenges of both mythical and real-world varieties, and the mythical often are instructive in thinking about serious questions of the real-world kind. Her settings, such as small-town rural Canada, are clearly-evoked and well-integrated into the dramatic action of her stories and the mythical world she builds.
