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

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

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
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.

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.

I really enjoyed this sequel to book one in the Edie Spence series, Nightshifted. It was a fun read and very engaging. I had trouble finding a good place to pause for the night while I was reading it. This is always a sign of a good book for me. :-)

A couple things I didn't like, though: Early in Edie's acquaintance with Lucas, I had wondered if he would be Edie's next "conquest" and (view spoiler)

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!!!

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

I liked the plot in this one much better than the plot in the first book. However, I find myself growing weary of the way the supernaturals constantly coerce and con Edie into doing things for them without giving her any explanations or choices in the matter. Then, when the shit hits the fan, they never seem to have her back and she's left to pick up the pieces all on her own.

Some of this is Edie's own fault. She has an abundance of do-gooder tendencies and she seems to be a bit of a doormat at

Moonshifted, sadly, is not as good as its predecessor. The plot of the first book was tight and suspenseful, whereas the storyline in Moonshifted is rather confusing and disjointed. The first installment also had a surprisingly sweet romance that provided some relief from the grimness of the rest of the book. Now that's gone, replaced by a mess of romantic entanglements that don't really do anything for the story. The writing is not as polished, and the whole final quarter of the book felt slapp ...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

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
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
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

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
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.

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

I would go 3 1/2 stars for Moonshifted, the second entry in Cassie Alexander's Edie Spence series. The book is solid urban fantasy fun in which Edie Spence has been coerced by the Shadows to serve as an underpaid, oft-threatened nurse on the Y4 ward at County General. This is the hidden, underground ward where things that go bump in the night are treated.

The story centers around Edie's continued bargain with the Shadows who keep her addict brother Jake straight (i.e., he can't enjoy the benefit

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).

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.

Ich hatte mir leider wirklich mehr erhofft von dieser Fortsetzung. Nachdem ich nach der Lektüre des ersten Bandes wusste, dass die „Nightshifted“-Serie keine weichgespülte Mischung aus Doctor’s Diary oder Grey’s Anatomy und Urban Fantasy ist, und dass Alexanders Schreibstil durchaus anspruchsvoll ist, hatte ich mir von diesem Band erhofft, dass er die Lücken füllen würde, die nach der Lektüre von „Nightshifted: Medi

Edie is a nurse that works a special floor that deals with supernatural creatures like werewolves, vampires and zombies to mention a few. She runs into problems after she helps to try to save a werewolf that is involved in a hit and run accident. I did like how it was a different take on how the author looks at the vampires and how the shadows act in both of her books I have read so far. Liked the book but couldn't say loved it. I can understand some of the interaction between her and her brothe ...more

Dans le premier tome, elle morflait et ben dans le deuxième elle n’y échappe pas. Toujours aussi malmenée au point que ça nous fait de la peine.

Ici, on oublie les vampires (même s’ils sont pas loin), et on est avec les loup-garous. Mon dieu, ils sont trop GRRRRRRRR !!!! J’ai adoré ce volume.

Bien que je n’aie pas lu le 1er tome, j’ai plutôt bien accroché.
J’aime le titre en rouge « Emergency » cela m’a fait penser à une ancienne série US du même nom. C’est une des raisons pour lesquelles j’ai voulu le lire.
En refermant le livre j’avais envie de lire le 1er tome pour comprendre ce qui c’était passé car il est fait référence a des évènements passés mais cela n’empêche en rien de comprendre et de suivre l’histoire. Ce tome m’a donné envie de lire la suite.

Moonshifted was a great second adventure featuring Edie Spence. This book begins with a hit and run that Edie witnesses, and before she knows it she is back in the middle of a supernatural turf war. Edie deals with a lot in this book with her family, her new friends, her job, and some new enemies, but she is strong enough to stand up for what is right even if it puts her at risk. I liked the introduction of Lucas and Gideon because each challenge her in different ways. Lucas helps her come to te ...more
