Run
Shadow and moonlight merge beneath her bare feet, the forest floor blurring as she flees the dogs and torches. Werewolf, monster--those are the names given her kind by the humans who hate them.
Hunt
Kenzie Macleod has spent her whole life hiding what she is, and she's not about to open up to any man, even one as powerfully attractive as wildlife expert Josh Talarkoteen

I'm really proud of this one -- I think it's the best one yet in my Changeling series! See more on my website at http://www.daniharper.com/CHANGELING_...

Dani takes you in depth with her story and characters. As I started reading I found I couldn’t put it down, I just had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. What I liked best was the little girl Anya and how Dani tied her with the hero and heroine Josh and Kenzie. It was fantastic. The villains have the perfect roll to give this book the action it needed. Dani has created a world that will keep growing with characters. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next to read. ...more

This is the third installment of the changeling series. This series has a nice, maybe a bit softer approach of the werewolf theme with some shamanic aspects and good psychological insights. No unleashed or uncontrollable beasts here (not among the heroes at least), but a more natural approach for people who really like animals and know their usual behavior. The wolves will sometimes remind you of big overgrown dogs, witch is not very far from the mark as they are/live among humans...

As you many of you should know (I talk about it nearly non-stop) this is my favorite adult paranormal series. Hands down. I am frequently told that people haven’t heard about it which is like the saddest thing ever cause it is pure writing gold.

The latest book in the series is about Kenzie, the first female changeling in the series. Kenzie has a past with humans and this past clouds her interactions with others. Especially males. This is the first book within the series that the actual age of th

Changeling Dawn is filled with so much passion, mystery, action and some heart ache (it even made me cry). It is so far the best in the series. Dani Harper brings so much passion into these characters and they seem so real. Kenzie and Josh have amazing chemistry that grabs your attention as soon as they meet.


I read this in 2 sittings, and I can not wait to read more from Dani. She brings something out in her writing and I can not even explain it. I am hoping one of the twins books will be next!

LOVED!!!!!

Kenzie went through a terrible trauma as a child and has never fully recovered. She has now dedicated her life to prevent this from happening to anyone else. But in turn she has isolated herself from everyone but her family. Kenzie is a loner and wants to keep it that way. But fate has other plans.

Josh has suffered his own trauma in his life too. But unlike Kenzie, Josh has tried to face his fears and is willing to move forward. A chance meeting on the side of the road will change ev

This is a review of an ARC sent to me by Kensington Publishing that according to the front cover is due to be released January 2012.

In Changeling Dawn, Dani Harper weaves a story line about some paranormal creatures she calls changelings or werewolves.

This is not your everyday werewolf story line. Changeling Dawn has romance, kidnapping, and murder...along with some mystery and intrigue.

The story opens with a very young Kenzie Macleod running for her life away of some hunters when all of a sudde

I though I’d prepare my review a little differently this time around. Instead of presenting a detailed overview (which may inadvertently reveal some spoilers), I though perhaps it might be neat to talk about the impression one of the leading characters left with me. Hopefully, through this impression, I will be able to share with you the latest masterpiece in an amazing series written by an author who has quickly risen to the topmost tier of my “Authors to watch for” list!

Witches. Changelings. Faeries. Oh my.
The first thing I noticed about Harper's writing was that it was smooth and vivid.
Characters are believable. You fell in love with them, and they pissed you off. Plot was easy to follow.
She pretty much cranked "Descriptions" up to maximum, then gave it more.
You could feel the passion and emotion fighting through the pages. The romance. The mystery. The suspense.
I would've preferred less relationship, more mystery and suspense, but there was a good balance.

Pretty good. I enjoyed both Kenzie and Josh. The addition of Anya added to the story too. The secondary characters were likeable as well. I was a bit disappointed in something Kenzie did towards the end of the book. She believed something that a certain someone told her, after that someone had already betrayed her. That was stupid and left me shaking my head.

For a last book, I felt it left a major story-line unresolved. Kenzie's brothers (Devlin and Culley) are likeable and I would be interested

Changeling Dawn was another brilliant book in this excellent series.
Again well-written, good story full of suspence and adventure, good romance, wonderful charachters... what more could I ask for (except for maybe more books!)

I really hope I'll get to read more very soon about the MacLeods and their entourage. Please, Dani Harper, hurry with the next book!

Decent werewolf story, but loses points because I hate when a strong female protagonist turns into an idiot 2/3 of the way through a story. To be fair to the author, she did foreshadow Kenzie's idiocy so it wasn't completely out of left field.

This is the third book in the Macleod Changeling series. It can be read on it's own as a stand-alone. However, I suggest you get the first two books, Changeling Moon and Changeling Dream because they all rock. This one rocks as well, and I swear Dani has me as a fan. I just want to know if she might have a secret knowledge of these changelings and could she introduce me to one... especially if it is a Macleod? ;)

Ah, but back to this book. In this book we become very familiar with Mackenzie (Kenz

My Thoughts:
Dani Harper is a new author for me, and I am so very glad I found her.
The covers for her books really drew me to them and once I read the blurbs I was drawn in even farther. So I tried winning one of her books and when that didn't pan out I decided to email Dani, I wanted to read and review her books so bad. Talking to Dani is such a pleasure and right away she agreed to let me review for her. I received in the mail an autographed copy of Changeling Dawn, along with all the covers fo

I'd like to thank Moonlight Gleam for these one! I won a book of my choice from her and requested Dani's book! I loved Kenzie and have been dying to hear from the youngest Macleod but I have to say Josh stole the show for me! More power to Kenzie resisting him as long as she did! I wouldn't have been able to resist him for a second! I laughed so much at his continuing to ask her out, not taking no for an answer and threatening to call her brother Connor!

This series has grabbed me from the very beginning. Changeling Dawn is book three. I’m not sure what it is; the wolves, the history of the changelings, the intriguing storylines, the feeling of family or even that the author is from Alaska. I’m not sure, but Ms. Harper has sunk her claws in me and won’t let go!

Kenzie Macleod is a Changeling. It is all she has ever known. During her long life, she has lived in fear though. As a child she had a life altering event and to this day, it still forms h

Kenzie Macleod knows the importance of family, but she also knows the value of working alone. That's why despite her ever growing family, she is heading to Alaska to start her next archaeological dig on her own. On the way, she meets Fish and Game office Josh Talarkoteen. Kenzie is doing h

The Changeling series by Ms. Harper is starting to come close to a perfect PNR series for me. I adore the simplicity of the world, the family atmosphere, and the storylines on each book are always interesting. This mixed in with just the right characters, always likeable, and you have a hit!

Well let me start by saying this is not normally a book I would read. In fact this is the first werewolf book I have ever picked up. I don’t know why but I just don’t do werewolf books. However, I was glad I did read this book. I actually enjoyed it. Both the main characters and sub ones had interesting roles in this book.

I liked that this book was more in a mystery kind of way rather than a love story, yes the romance was there but done with a bit of a spin. The main focus was on the mystery a

I am giving five stars for Josh and three for Kenzie. Someone, and not just Birkie, needed to have a word with that woman and explain that sensitive, conscientious, friendly and good looking helicopter pilots with progressive and trusting Native American sensibilities and attitudes to Changelings DO NOT grow on trees. I know that the whole development of the emotional sub-text depended on Kenzie getting it wrong in terms of who she should trust and what she should fear but, for me, her road to g ...more
