This novel was a lovely introduction to griffons. Munro found herself a niche in the realm of supernatural literature without getting hung up with the mainstream supernatural beings. She also develops a unique mythology to go with her characters. Everything regarding the culture and history of the griffon is laid out for her audience, but she does so in a very entertaining and captivating manner.

Munro’s characters are quite well developed. You get to know the main characters inside and out. They

I received this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

The story follows Jenn/Shadow, a human/gryphon woman who falls in love, finds her long lost family, and takes her place as a royal leader of her family's eyrie.

The beginning of the book is very confusing, and not just because of the frustrating writing style and poor editing. The gryphon lore the author bases the story on is very complex and unfamiliar to me, with very little explanation or background provided. It wasn't until about halfw

Great story and really long but.........

I loved this book. The creation of these creatures is pretty original and really imaginative. I only noticed a few typos, and considering the size of the thing that's impressive. My only problem here is that it's written in the present tense, something that most authors don't do and it took me some time to get used to. Because of this, I got lost several times in parts of the story and had to go back and re-read. Other than that, this book is one of my fav

Good read

Good read

excellent characters. good story. I would have lied to read more about Terry. The first meeting between Talon and Shadow was a bit abrupt. I would have liked a bit more on that.
This review is my personal opinion and not necessarily true for other readers. If you are thinking about reading this book do not let this review sway you too much.
First of all I want to say that I thought it had poor writing and was also very confusing as to what was happening.
Although, I did enjoy the new concept of gryphons. The love story was also okay but it seemed somewhat unrealistic.
That is why I gave this book three stars. If the author had just spent a little bit more time editing a

This was just a tremendously easy read and an exciting story. I was asked if I wanted to buy her book because I had bought one before so it wasn't a lot and I did. I'm glad I did. I had a few hours to kill on Sunday and stayed up late to find out how Jenn and Mark turned out. I love the gryphon world she made. Her transition between points of view was very easy. She's just a really good writer and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this. My wife grabbed my Kindle when I was finished and started ch ...more

I won this book (free) thru Goodreads and I was soooooo happy I did! I loved this book and can't wait for book 2! After years of feeling alone, Jenn unexpectedly finds someone who could make that hurt go away. This is when Shadow is born and her coming of age helps Jenn find what she's always wanted. Family. Friends. Home.

I received this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway. It was an interesting read, I hadn't read a book about gryphon/humans before. Entertaining and the author obviously did a lot of research!
I got this book in a goodreads giveaway and I was stunned at how good it was. I can't wait for the next one to come out.

“Kings of the land and the sky we are; proud gryphons.” Stalker stands, the epitome of pride. Naked and muscular, his wings widen and his feet dig in as if he alone holds down the earth and supports the heavens, keeping the two ever separate.” 2 likes
“What kind of hellish punishment does Lev have planned if he needs the females’ crazy magic moon water? Nothing Talon has ever heard of but the gryphon is a recluse and stories about him keep children from sneaking out alone; a terribly convoluted mixture of the rogue army attack on his eyrie, death, and the name Lev, one of the few survivors mean enough to live through it.” 1 likes
