I'll start off by saying that this wasn't my favorite book in this series. The reason behind it is a totally subjective personal annoyance for me, which is: kids, even worse annoying kids. That's it. The writing and the overall pacing of the story were amazing. Would I have liked a little more Christian and Raven witty banter? Sure, but I'm happy with what I got either way!

On a positive note, we got to know much more about Niko. It shined a spotlight on the problems his

Keystone is tasked with moving precious cargo and part of the team will remain at the compound giving us two action-packed threads that will leave you sitting on edge, laughing, weeping and wanting to kick some mercenary arse.

I read the synopsis after listening and man it’s vague..which I think it a good thing, but since I try not to mention anything not mentioned there, it leaves me feeling tongue tied. I love going into the audiobooks blind. Dark is an auto-buy for me. I’ve listened to all her

Back on form

After two very frustrating instalments of back and forth with Raven and Christian I’m happy to report this latest release includes no relationship drama

Back to action packed jobs for keystones members and we get POVs from characters we haven’t heard from yet. I loved hearing their stories and it brought life back into this series after listening to Ravens internal struggle for too long.
Every character is so well developed they carry their own story without breaking a sweat.

I really like this series & the best thing I did was start it via audible! Nicole Poole does such a fantastic job bringing Dannika Dark’s characters to life! Love it! 4.5 stars!!!

Moonstruck finds the majority of the Keystone group on a road trip transporting three human teens to safety. Why would they bother with humans? These teens are potentials, which are humans with a birthmark in the shape of a spade. They live in secret because potentials can become any breed. If the humans sleep with a breed they will become the same breed of their sexual partner. Some breeds would use that to their advantage.

The smaller group who stays behind at the Keystone c

Another exceptional addition to the crossbreed series. Theres alot I could say about this book but I wont. Alot of you reading this review probably have not read the previous books so.... start reading and catch up. All you need to know is the book is great, its apart of a series and since I've been reading from the beginning you will know its excellent. Enjoy! ...more
Anytime I can lose myself in a book by Dannika Dark is a win for me. Moonstruck was certainly a home run this time. Raven Black is back, along with her lover, Christian Poe, and they are smack in the middle of a dangerous and very exciting adventure. Raven and Christian are the delight here as they have been from the beginning of this amazing paranormal series.

Moonstruck is the seventh of Dark's Crossbreed series and I can honestly say that it is still going strong with each new installment. Her

I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Moonstruck by Dannika Dark was a highly anticipated book for me. I love this world, the characters and the narration of the audio.

Moonstruck has the Keystone crew separated. The few that are left at home are dealing with one crisis, while the rest that are on the mission delivering precious cargo dealing with a different set of problems. Neither g

I absolutely LOVE the characters and the whole Keystone world! Each time I read the next installment in this series, it is like reuniting with much beloved friends. Ms. Dark has embued every single character with a unique personality that holds both strengths and weaknesses... so human yet so immortal.

While I enjoy catching up the characters every single time, my enjoyment of the individual books is not always as consistent. Some books are amazing! Others - like this one... not so much. Luckily,

Moonstruck is Book 7 in the Crossbreed series. I read this book so very slowly to enjoy every single written word.
Moonstruck gives more tiny peeks into the history of the residents of Keystone.
A big job for Raven and her merry band of friends brings out the action with their enemies trying to divide and conquer.
It made me smile to see Crush playing a part in this one.
I literally jumped up from chair and cheered for Gem at the end. I’ve got great faith in her that she won’t let Niko down 😉

I absolutely loved this book - Read it in one day and I think this has to be my favorite so far. As much as I love Raven and Christian (and want more of them) I found that there isn't a character in this book that I don't like within the keystone family. It was great to get to read a bit more about everyone else in the house.
I hate that it ended on a cliff hanger, but I'm dying to find out what happens with Niko and Gem. I cannot wait until the next installment. If you like urban fantasy - you

This installment had the team split up a bit. it was great to learn a little more about some other members of the Keystone team. I'm so glad Switch is in the book.....and probably future books. I love Christian and Raven's banter. Their relationship wouldn't be the same without it. The changes in both of them is amazing to read about. I am excited to see where it goes. I'm also excited to see Raven grow as a young Crossbreed. I can't wait for the next book! So many places the story can go! ...more

Loved it!

I love this series it's my favorite, after the Mageri series. I feel in love with Chrisian Poe in the Mageri series so happy his story continues, he and Raven are perfect for each other, it would be amazing to see some of the Mageri characters in this series.

Packed full of suspense

This series never seems to lose its appeal. Every book is a new adventure and the depth of characters storylines never seems to falter but grow. Another great advenute.

The only thing I hate about reading a Crossbreed novel is that they end. I absolutely love this series. Is it greedy to already want the next book?

Not my favorite in the series but still good. The ending, featuring Niko and Gem was by far my favorite part. I had figured out what Gem was going to do, but the way Dark wove in subtle intricacies about blood lines was nicely done. A good cliffhanger as well.
It should come as no shock to absolutely anyone at all that I loved the newest addition to the Crossbreed series. Let’s be honest, I knew I would love Moonstruck going in, and I definitely was not disappointed.

There’s just something about the way that Dark world builds and writes her characters that just feels so authentic. I was hesitant when she started introducing different perspectives, as sometimes jumping pov can be a little jarring and overcomplicates an otherwise good narrative. But the

I finished this audio about four days ago and honestly can't remember a single thing about it other than more drama with Cyrus.

I've finally caught up with this series and I am feeling very blessed as I don't plan on continuing once the next one comes out. These books have gotten worse and worse as they go along and I need to be free of this prison.

Christian and Raven's weird relationship used to be a will-they-or-won't-they thing, but now it's more like "I just dismembered someone/am in a weir
Anna Theurer (Anna's Bookshelf)
I have enjoyed all of this author's books and Moonstruck does not disappoint. Raven remains a hard core heroine who is strong and resilient, but also has some vulnerability about her. She is off on another case with Keystone and things do not go as planned. This book is full of action and some swoon-worthy moments. Raven's one-liners and the witty banter between her and Christian were hilarious, but there is also suspense, action, and some serious moments. I enjoyed seeing all of the member of k ...more

She did it again!

I have no clue how Dannika Dark keeps writing these amazing stories but she totally did it again! I have never before wanted to throw my ereader so much as when I realized I had finished this story! I loved it! I was not ready for it to be over. The Keystone team had yet another amazing adventure, but it was more like a 2 for 1 because the team wasn't all together so there were multiple adventures to read... it was so awesome how they were very subtly interconnected though so it

What a ride!!!

I love this series. I fall more and more in love with Christian with every book I read. He is such a big heart behind all that snark and gruffness. I will admit there are elements of this book that didn't work as smoothly as they could have but overall this was such a fun read. I'm looking forward to seeing the Gem and Nico subplot resolved in the next book. I want to see Switch succeed with Hunter. So many good things to come. Can't wait for the next book

4.50 / 4 Stars

Ah yes, much better than Nevermore! Two separate intrigues going on this time with the Keystone group. Both interesting. Of course now we have to wait to see what happens with Niko.

I won't go into the story since other reviewers have done that very well. I'll just say I enjoyed. Look forward to the release of Spellbound in November!
This is supposed to be a well oiled, respected, bad ass team. But all they do (well, mostly Raven) is question orders and think they know better. So freaking annoying. I hope with the cover of this next one that I barely if at all have to hear from Raven.
