It’s no secret that I love urban fantasy more than any other genre out there, and I love it even more when urban fantasy flirts with horror just a little bit. I discovered the Edie Spence series entirely by accident, really enjoyed Nightshifted, the first book, and now I’m happy to report that the second book didn’t diminish my love for it in the least.

I think what people like most about Edie is that she’s just a regular woman, very non-heroic and plain. She works her night shifts at the hospita...more
Originally reviewed here @ Angieville.

You'll remember my excitement upon discovering Cassie Alexander and Nightshifted--her fabulous urban fantasy debut. I loved everything about it, from the killer cover to the hard-working, conflicted protagonist inside. When I realized the sequel was set to be published just a few months later I was, well, over the moon. Go on. Raise your hands. I know I'm not the only one who waits (with barely concealed ill grace) a year for each new installment in her favo...more
Despite oh so very deceiving synopsis, Moonshifted is not about choosing sides or men. Just like Nightshifted, it is a constant attempt of one lonely human with a big heart to survive among scary supernatural forces. That's it.

Nurse Edie doesn't have any superpowers, she is not particularly pretty, especially working night shifts (Edie, I know how you feel. I don't like the look of myself in the mirror after a week of night shifts too) and she doesn't have awesome powers of deduction. In ot...more
3.5 stars. This one had a lot of little annoyances again, and a bit of a wandering plot, but overall I'm still a fan of the book and the series. It didn't start off well; I don't like stupid coincidences just to make things easier for the author. In the entire city Dren the evil vampire with a grudge against Edie and Asher the shapeshifter who's her former lover both just happened to be at the same Target as she was on Christmas Eve? Dren didn't even act like he'd followed her there. There was a...more

You may also read my review here:

Moonshifted starts up pretty soon after Nightshifted leaves off, with Edie still recovering from a very nasty vampire attack. Her heart is still smarting after her lover, Ti, takes off to who knows where. So yeah, Edie’s not in a great place, but when she witnesses a hit and run right in front of her hospital, she has little time to think about herself when she’s trying to keep a man from bleeding out in the street. Soon,...more

The previous romance that grossed me out is a memory so I was able to read this book without cringing and actually ended up enjoying it more than the first book probably for the same reason. Edie does find some quick romantic entanglements but nothing long term so far. Big changes at the end of the book!!!

Review Courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

Where NIGHTSHIFTED, the first book in the Edie Spence series setup Edie’s crazy life and hospital job, MOONSHIFTED expanded on the danger and supernatural consequences of Edie’s actions as a nurse in the Y4 wing of her hospital. The first book focused heavily on vampires and, while they are featured in MOONSHIFTED I was excited to see my favorite supernatural creatures, werewolves, be the focus of this book. Their introduction and the plot surrounding t...more
Fangs for the Fantasy
Edie Spence, nurse on Y4, the secret floor of County Central Hospital where the supernatural are treated – the vampires, the werewolves and, in the past, even zombies and dragons. She doesn’t have nearly enough time, especially with the holidays coming up, and even less money hence her taking overtime during the holidays in the hope of more money to pad her rapidly disappearing paycheck.

That in itself would be exhausting, but that’s before the king of the werewolves gets run over in a hit and ru...more
Edie would do anything for those she cares about and that is how she ended up being a nurse in Y4. MOONSHIFTED picks up right where NIGHTSHIFTED ended and is full of action, fantastic characters and situations that will make you want to kick some bad guys were it counts.

When Edie and her coworker witness a hit and run outside of the hospital while on lunch break they jump in to help. Not only does the patient end up being someone that belongs on Y4 but his presence is the cause of most of the p...more

I was provided this Advance Reader Copy by the publisher.

Alexander begins this book with the same brisk action and unique perspective that made the first book, Nightshifted, so enjoyable. Alexander is a real-life nurse, and brings that realism to her urban fantasy featuring a nurse working on Y4, the top-secret paranormal creature wing of the hospital. There are a gazillion urban fantasies out there right now, and for me that touch of medical realism is what sets this series apart and makes it a...more

K so I'm seriously loving Edie Spence. This book is totally different from the first one and if she's working towards so overall goal it's not apparent at this point. Oh, there are overall themes--weres hate vampires, vampires hate weres, shadows are assholes, etc., but there's not some great unification objective or something.

In fact, Edie has no super powers whatsoever. That's right, in a world of supernatural creatures, Edie Spence is not a supernatural. She's H-U-M-A-N. She's had some brushe...more
4.5 stars - Even better than the first!

{This review was originally published on Clear Eyes, Full Shelves.}

Cassie Alexander's debut novel, Nightshifted, was one of the more memorable and creative urban fantasies I've read in a long time. Needless to say, I was thrilled to get my hands on an early copy of Moonshifted, Nightshifted's fast-paced and riveting sequel.

[Note: I have made every attempt to avoid spoilers for Nightshifted. Read my review of that book Read my review of that book here.]

Moonshifted is the 2nd book in the Edie Spence series and I LOVED it!! It was such a fun read. The story became more indepth and the ending was unexpected. The ending did what an ending in a series should do....make the reader excited to continue the story. In this novel, we see Edie continuing her dangerous nursing job on y4 the top secret, supernatural floor of the hospital. She witnesses and hit and run while she is on a break that results in a were-war. Edie is in the middle of werewolves, v...more

This series is rapidly becoming one of those for which I need the world to stop, and my work to understand that I absolutely NEED to stay at home and finish this book without any interruptions.

Yeah, that’s not going to happen, so instead, I become grateful I have such a long commute to work (which isn’t enough sometimes).

In this book, Edie is as usual working at the hospital on Y4 when she and Charles, a co-worker, sa...more
This is the sequel to Nightshifted, about a nurse blackmailed into working in a hospital unit that serves supernatural creatures. In the first book, Alexander introduced a world of weres, vamps, zombies, shifters, etc. and strange beings called Shadows that have interesting powers. She met Anna, a living vampire, Ti a zombie our heroine Edie Spence was attracted to, and was embroiled in a struggle that left her alive but injured. In this book, she has recovered and returned to work, but of cours...more
Nurse Edie Spencer, who works on a special secret unit in County Hospital that caters to the supernatural, has recently healed from her wounds obtained when on trial by vampires. She’s also dealing with the recent break-up with her zombie boyfriend.

When walking back to the hospital from a lunch break, she and a co-worker witness a man getting hit by a truck which immediately takes off. Recognizing the guy is a werewolf, they’re able to save his life while preventing the gawkers from learning th...more

Quick & Dirty: Enjoyable main character and world but the plot left me a little confused.

Opening Sentence: “Who knew a Code Silver isn’t when an old-timer tries to beat you with their walker?” Charles said as he double-looped his scarf around his neck.

I am a sucker for a well written underdog is a story and Edie Spence, nurse extraordinaire evokes strong emotions for me. "Moonshifted" finds our herione still working in the paranormal medical ward known as Y4. While returning to work after having lunch with a coworker, Charles, Edie witnesses a hit and run car accident. She and Charles do all they can to save the victim and then they realize that he is a were.

The patient is not just any were, he is the king of the weres and it is unknown and h...more
In all honesty, I'd rate this book just a shade above crap, that is if you're considering it within the realm of a published novel with even a hint of literary merit. If, by chance, you're interested in sub-par porn with an needlessly and poorly executed elaborate plot, then this is the book for you!

Seriously, I'm disappointed. The first book wasn't exactly a mind-blowing pieces of literature either, Alexander is certainly not a Dickens, but it was fun and entertaining. The main character was a...more

Moonshifted picks up right where Nightshifted left off, with nurse Edie still working on the "special" floor of the county hospital mostly caring for daytimers (vampire servants) and werewolves. She has an uneasy truce/attraction with shapeshifter Asher and her zombie boyfriend Ti is gone after sustaining severe damage at the end of book one.

A werewolf gets run down in the street in front of her, and her vampire friend Anna asks her to play a special role in a ceremony giving Anna the power to s...more
Aspen Junge
Once again, the traditional nurse adventure from the 1940s has been reborn with a modern paranormal twist. It's very nice that the author is herself a working nurse, so the technical parts of the story ring factual.

Edie has a problem; one of the patients in her hospital's secret Ward for the Weird is the leader of one of the more powerful local werewolf packs, and it doesn't look like he's gonna make it. Considering her current role in the vampiric political scene, she really doesn't need to get...more

This is another awesome addition to this series. No wonder it's already made it onto my Most Fave UF Series List. I loved it!

Christmas and the New Year might be around the corner, but if Edie is going to make ends meet she has to keep working through the holidays. She's a nurse in the County Hospital’s Y4 wing, which is where they take care of supernatural creatures.

Except, now that she's been introduced into this world she keeps getting deeper into it. And when she witnesses an old man getting...more
Wild, leidenschaftlich und absolut gefährlich geht es auch im zweiten Band der Edie-Spence-Serie weiter: Diesmal tauscht Edie ihre Schicht und hilft auf der Station für Werwesen aus. Doch dass die nicht weniger blutrünstig sind als ihre untoten Patienten, bekommt sie allzu bald zu spüren: Nach einem schrecklichen Unfall liegt der Anführer des lokalen Werwolfrudels im Sterben, aber Edie wittert einen Mordanschlag. Erneut ermittelt die mutige Nachtschwester auf eigene Faust – und entdeckt dabei ni...more

Cassie Alexander has really hit her stride with this second installment by adding werewolves into her unique para-medical world. The story is richly detailed, the plot is complex and Edie Spence is absolutely delightful. Moonshifted offers a fresh perspective on a popularized genre by combining nursing with dark humor and wackiness to create a winning blend that’s not to be missed.

Instead of the typical who-done-it, this book’s plot revolves around who-can-be-trusted and...more
What has Edie Spence gotten herself into now? After everything that happened in Nightshifted, she has no desire to become that involved in the paranormal again. Then she and co-worker, Charles, witnesses a hit and run with a werewolf. They quickly put their medical training to work and the werewolf becomes a patient on Y4. They soon learn that this werewolf is the alpha of one of the local packs.

What Edie doesn’t realize is that this is the start of a war between rivaling werewolf packs and that...more
An Edie Spence Novel
Cassie Alexander

I am so glad that I had the good judgment to give this author another try. I had been slightly unhappy with the last book but had seen the potential and this second novel is fantastic! If I was unhappy with the lack of world building in the last book, the author made up for that lack in this one. I now know so much more about Edie’s world and it really helps to get the reader ‘into’ the story/

This is the second book in the Edie Spence series.

The victim turns out to be the pack leader of the local werewolf pack. Now Edie is caught between two rival packs and she has to deal with her vampire friends too.
