Her past is a blank, her future uncertain.

I REALLY like this author's Elder Races series - ESPECIALLY books 1-4 - and this is a spin-off of that series...it takes place in the same world that Harrison has created there (which is AMAZING by the way)...
But this one just didn't do it as much for me, sadly.
Despite the fact that she already "built" this world in the Elder Races series, I feel like I still trudged through the foundation-building for this series.
I had a hard time getting a good feel for Sophie and her powers and ...more
➦So I've read this to scratch my paranormal itch. Yep. Apparently that's a thing for me now. Well, consider it scratched!
➦Sophie, our heroine, knows a bunch of magic spells. Some runes. Or something. Sorry, people, this book was 4 books ago for me. #badtimemanagement
➦Anyways. What's interesting, is that Sophie doesn't come off as a badass in the magic department. But she's sassy and doesn't take shit from anyone. And her spells keep her safe. IF ONLY SHE COULD HAVE A GUN TOO.
➦She travels to ...more
"Do not push me, human."
"I'll push you every bit much as you've pushed me."
Sophie met Nicholas through a vision, while she was reading runes and she was concentrating on her near future. Nicholas was in a middle of a battle across the Atlantic, when he felt that someone was looking at him. Scared Sophie threw the stones away and the vision scattered.
Obviously the two of them did not have the best beginning in their relationship.
Things do not improve later on when Sophie ...more
To say that I was impressed with this book would be an understatement. Thea Harrison, is a new author for me, and Moonshadow gave me everything I am looking for in a story from this genre.
The author set the scene extremely well, and being the start of the Moonshadow series there were introductions aplenty through the first few chapters, I think it highlights the quality of the writing and storytelling in that I wasnt confused at any point about who everyone was.
This was about a gal that had a gift, she used it as a detective but she was recovering from being shot. She gets a offer to go overseas to a old house that was left to her. It will be hers if she can get the house to let her in. Yep, if the house will let her in! She feels the tingle of the house in the picture. She is excited to go. So ...more
Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books
Thanks for asking, asshole!
I am a huge fan of Thea Harrison's Elder Races series and so far I've gobbled up all the books like candy (except the last full length one, which I'll remedy very soon). She is a master of world building and making a landscape appear in your mind. Add to that her sassy way of writing and I'm a goner.
Sophie, who is a witch consultant for the LAPD, is still recovering from gunshot wounds she received when a ...more
Yeah. Totally me when Thea Harrison asked me to read Moonshadow, her newest book and the first in a new series.
So here is my OFFICIAL blurb for the book:
"Thrilling and deliciously sexy, Moonshadow is a smart, action-packed introduction to a new adventure in Harrison's...more

HEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]
Despair had no place here. It had been a long, dark battle, in the darkest of wars, but they would hold. They would all hold.
I've gotten woefully behind in reading Thea Harrison's books. Dragon Bound, book one in the Elder Races, was one of my all-time favorite PNR/fantasy books. EVER. Not only did I fall in love with the humor and snark from her ...more
She stuck the screen of her phone into his face. "Here. This is me."
He watched the clip of an octopus running away along the ocean floor. The words, 'NOPE. NOPE. NOPE' appeared at the bottom of the screen.
"What the hell am I looking at?" he barked.
"It's a nope GIF. You've never seen a nope GIF? There are hundred on the internet. " She smiled. "We literally never have to have this conversation again. You'll bring it up again, and I'll just send you a GIF. Subject closed."
This is ...more

I liked this book but I didn't rate it higher than three stars because it didn't wow me or intrigue me.
Thea Harrison writes a good solid PNR story and I will continue reading this trilogy as well as the Elder Races books. However, I am starting to hear that little voice in the back of my head saying 'wrap up this series'.
The heroine is an American police consultant recovering from a shooting. Her entire future opens up when she learns she may be heir to a ...more
What a fabulous debut into a new spin off series from Author Thea Harrison.

The world building is wonderful and the magic the heroine uses is clever and interesting.
We are in the same world as the Elder Races but we don't see the characters we know so well, but that is okay because we get a great cast of brothers in arms.
I like the hero very much in all his tortured angry warrior self but the heroine steals the show of me.
She is kind, brave, ...more
When he find out that Sophie has knowledge and abilities that can help his brothers survive he decides to use her without conscience but fails miserably.
The romance is one of those hate ...more
No one writes magical nerdery better than Thea Harrison. Reminiscent of Rune and Carling tumbling through time, MOONSHADOW's heroine, Sophie faces an age old problem with a mix of modern problem solving and magic. While she makes huge magical strides, her explanations strike the perfect balance between realism and fantasy.
I've always enjoyed Harrison's centuries old alpha males running into modern women, and Sophie and Nikolas are no exception. While ...more
