Kingdom of Exiles: Pokemon for Adults

I was one of those kids who grew up watching Pokemon.  So when I read Maxym M. Martineau's Kingdom of Exiles, an adult paranormal romance book full of magical creatures with special abilities you have to charm/capture and imprison in an alternate dimension to be called upon as needed...

I immediately thought of Pokemon.

Technically there's a whole fantasy world with other elements thrown in and not everything revolves around the magical creatures.  In fact, most things don't, and there are other regular animals.  (Which reminds me, did we ever find out what the hamburgers in Pokemon were made of?)

And there's a little romance here.  Not the most compelling I've ever read, but at least it moved beyond Pokemon's "guy with unrequited feelings" gimmick.
