    Moonshadow is spellbinding & a compelling read!

    Moonshadow is Book 1 of a new trilogy written by Thea Harrison. This book can be read with or without any previous knowledge of this authors very popular “Elder Races” series. However, this story takes place in the same world as the “Elder Races” for those of you that have read the series and you will recognize some names, places & characters. If you like paranormal romance with plenty of action, steamy love scenes, shape shifters & magic, then this book is for you! This is the story of Nikolas & Sophie; Nikolas is a loyal, dedicated, “old timey” kind of shape shifting alpha hero and Sophie is a creative, tenacious, modern day heroine with powers of her own. Their story is set in Europe. From the first time these two set eyes on each other, through the ensuing battles & mayhem this story is filled with magic, intrigue, action, romance, mystery and a bit of humor. At times this book will pull at your heart strings, make you laugh and your heart race. Moonshadow is spellbinding & a very compelling read! This story has plenty of background regarding the characters and storyline, so if you’re a new reader have no fear. If you’ve never read one of Thea Harrison’s books or if you’re already a fan, be prepared to pull an all-nighter reading this book! As a fan of the “Elder Races” series I am hopeful that in the future there will be some cross overs between the two series in regards to storylines & characters but we’ll have to wait and see. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and personally I cannot wait for Book 2 of this trilogy to be published.  **I received the ARC for Moonshadow in exchange for an honest review.

    Great start to a new series!

    This is the best book I have read this year!! I read it from start to finish in one day, then started it again. Moonshadow is a spinoff of the Elder Races series that offers readers the opportunity to fully experience the Elder Races world. Sophie, a consultant for the LAPD, is recovering from a shooting when she is offered an opportunity to inherit some property in England. Needing time to recover and plan for the future, she takes on the challenge. Nikolas, a dark fae knight that is looking for a way to protect his men and get home, sees the perfect solution in Sophie. If only he can get control of his fascination for the resourceful Sophie. Together they light the electronic book pages on fire. When you take two headstrong, independent personalities and throw them into life or death situations you get the page-turner Moonshadow. I throughly enjoyed the book and can hardly wait for the the next one in the series. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Totally enjoyed this one and eagerly anticipating more. Moonshadow has everything I hope for in a book it’s a perfect blend of suspense, drama and romance. Readers will find this new series set in the Elder Races world jam packed with action and an edge of your seat plot.

    Spinoff series start of something different

    Moonshadow was darker and more complex in its execution than Harrison’s previous books. Don’t worry. There was a romance and it’s concluded within the book. But Sophie and Nickolas’s relationship came across as side trip rather than the destination. I wouldn’t go as far to say they were an afterthought. Their relationship seems fully developed and in character. But I felt the emphasis wasn’t so much on them but on them and the problem of the world. This could be me trying to find fault when there really wasn’t anything else to complain about! :) I do believe Harrison is building to something bigger. This book felt like the kickoff to a larger problem/puzzle involving Isabeau and possibly involving Morgan. A character I’m very much intrigued by. Is he a good guy? Is he a bad guy? What role will he play in future books? (Really, what is his deal? I MUST KNOW!) My expectation was that this spinoff series would be filled with more of the snark and larger than life characters in previous books. Or Dragon Bound 2.0. While both were present, it wasn’t as large a presence. I’ll admit in the beginning I was disappointed. However, once I adjusted my thinking, I was excited for the change. If anything having the change showed me the author isn’t hoping to settle for a career of the same and is instead growing and wanting the reader to grow as well. New readers to Harrison will find a whole new world to explore. This book can be read without having read any of the other Elder Races novels. Old school lovers will find something fresh to sink their teeth into. Harrison is still one of my auto-buy authors and this book hasn’t changed my mind. *received a review copy from the author for honest opinion

    Dark, Edgy, Sexy

    I loved Thea Harrison’s Elder Races series and while this book is a spin-off to that series, you don’t need to have read it to read and enjoy this book. Thea weaves humor, suspense, and strong sexual tension into all of her books seamlessly, creating strong characters and fast paced plots with layers that I enjoy reading over and over. In Moonshadow, Sophie is a paranormal witch consultant with the police department, focusing on magical crimes. After a bust gone wrong, she is injured and on leave, trying to figure out what to do with the rest of her life (and dealing with PTSD), when she is contacted about an inheritance of an estate in England. Not knowing her past, she jumps at the chance to learn about her parents and to find a purpose in her life. On her journey, she meets a Daoine Sidhe Knight of the Dark Court, in exile and desperately trying to get back to his court and save his people. Nikolas has been fighting for centuries with his fellow knights, watching their numbers dwindle as the Light Court pick them off and feeling the despair and the way to the Dark Court has been cut off. Sensing Sophie’s estate might be a route to their homeland and Sophie herself a tool to help them in their fight, he allies himself with her in his battle even as he fights against the sexual attraction he has for her. Sophie is a strong woman who resists being used as a pawn in anyone’s game, even as she sympathizes with Nikolas and his fellow knights’ plight. She agrees to help but refuses to be used or manipulated, even as her own feelings arise for the steadfast knight. Amidst battles and chases and betrayals, Nikolas and Sophie battle the Light Court, each other and themselves in their struggle for who they are and who they want to be in their world. I loved the darker tone of this book. There was humor in it but the overall tone of the story was edgier and darker due to the subject matter. The characters were deep and flawed but well -rounded. The development of the story flowed great, although the beginning took a little while to get going. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the ending made my heart skip a beat. I loved it and can’t wait for more books in the series!
