Moonshadow-Thea Harrison [Review]

Moonshadow is the first installment to the Moonshadow series. This is urban fantasy novel published December 13, 2017 by Amazon Digital Services LLC.

Blurb for Moonshadow

Her past is a blank, her future uncertain….

Recovering from a shooting, LAPD witch consultant Sophie Ross leaves her job and travels to the U.K. to search for answers about her childhood. When she encounters a Daoine Sidhe knight of the Dark Court, she becomes entangled in an ancient hatred between two arcane forces.

He has given his body and soul to fight for his people….

Barred from his homeland along with his surviving brother knights, Nikolas Sevigny is embroiled in a conflict that threatens everything he holds dear. Only by uniting his people’s resources can they hope to prevail against Isabeau, the deadly Queen of the Light Court. He will do anything and use anyone to return home to Lyonesse.

When Nikolas encounters Sophie, he sees a tool to be used. The insouciant witch might be the key to unlocking every passageway that has been barred to the knights of the Dark Court, even as a fascination for her takes root in what’s left of his soul.

Sophie has no intention of becoming anyone’s pawn, yet the fierce Nikolas is so compelling, she can’t deny the temptation that endangers her guarded heart.

As magic threatens Lyonesse, Queen Isabeau unleashes her merciless Hounds, and Nikolas and Sophie become embroiled in a race for survival. Meanwhile, the passion that ignites between them burns too hot to be denied and quickly turns into obsession.

Thank goodness they both know better than to fall in love…

 

Misty’s Review of MOONSHADOW

I read Moonshadow because I love Thea Harrison’s Elder series and decided to give her new series a try. I love this series and it is just as good as her Elder series.

Although I received a free advanced reading copy for review, my opinions are my own.

The Story

Moonshadow is the story of Sophie Rose and Nikolas Sevigny. Sophie is a witch without any memories of her past and Nikolas is a Daoine Sidhe Knight who was barred from his homeland. Sophie was injured and is now in search for answers to her past and where she comes from.

Sophie gets some clues to her past and goes to find out where they lead her. During her journey she runs into Nikolas and knows from the start that he isn’t human, but that he is very powerful. Nikolas just sees her as a way to get home.

Between the fighting and the friendly moments you realize that there is a kind of love/hate relationship going on between these two. The only thing that you figure out right off is that Sophie has already falling in love with Nikolas, but has Nikolas fallen in love with Sophie?

Do I Recommend?

Yes I do recommend this story. Especially to the ones that have read Thea Harrison’s Elder series and that are into reading urban fantasies.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars (A)
