Amethyst Moon, the fifth book in the Prides of the Moon series, is the sequel to Onyx Moon. It continues the story of Marcus and Vashan and, to my delighted surprise, gave these two a male third mate in Noah. Not only that, but the entire situation is slightly complicated due to the fact Noah is a turned shifter, not a born one. In this ‘world’, this means a few rules are just slightly different and I really enjoyed finding out more about that.

Noah is torn between two worlds, and the conflict wi
This book has a great story but there is a lot of angst. Noah is in a tough place trying to get a feel for his place in a new world. This book is an MMM, which is not generally my thing.

Still great read with wonderful story telling. I was hoping for more on the mysterious bad shaman. That bit of the series seems to be dragging. I would love more detail and a resolution to that problem soon.

Still a great series that packs loads of story into an itty bitty space.
Such great conflict in this story...Noah is a turned shifter, after a promise is made; he finds it hard to keep that promise that would bond him with his Alpha female, because he is gay. He turns to Madame Eve of the 1NS matchmaking service to find a male that he can bond with and then in turn that male will bond his Alpha.

Marcus and Vashan, from the previous story in the series, are looking for a female to complete their Pride and instead find Noah and are tremendously attracted to him. However
Two things here really floated my boat -- the dominance and submission games that shifters instinctively tune into and the guy on guy on guy action. Seriously sexy in a way that makes me want to read more. I love love love that Noah had to fight through his reluctance in accepting a submissive role to Marcus. As a man, he was a dominant yet as a turned shifter, he has to submit to his Alpha to form the proper bonds. When Marcus, Vashan, and Noah get down to business, they do it with style. Hot, ...more
I was able to feel the tension in Noah between his dominant personality and his needs as a beta. I read this as part of the bundle and later as a standalone story for a reader challenge. I enjoyed it both times.

4 1/2 Stars!

Ms Mayburn’s world building abilities get stronger with each episode of the Moon Pride series. She lays down rules and then has these amazing shifters and magicians fit their personalities into the tracks they have to follow. What began as a character-driven series has morphed into more of a plot-driven series and with this short story left me very anxious for the next one, hopefully when we will meet the beautiful Alpha herself, Giselle. These are lovely, sexy short stories that tog
