Terrific Series

Now that I've listened to all three books in this series, I can easily say that I enjoyed Moonglow the most. Kudos to Kristen Callihan for originality and imagination in a saturated PNR market. It's a helluva thing to have to note that she didn't steal bits and pieces from the other eleventy-million series out there and that I'm grateful that I don't have to use the word "derivative." And while I'm at it, let me say that this series is NOT dumbed down. Too bad that has to be said as well.

Beautifully narrated by Moira Quirk.

The second of an enjoyable series.

Setting is England, 1880s.
Like the first in the series, this is a paranormal plot, but well-written enough that I could suspend disbelief. The world building for the series is really well done. The narration was better than average, with enough differentiation between the characters that you're not confused. There are not just male and female characters, but English and Scottish accents as well.
The heroine is likable, though she doesn't see value in herself. She is a very beautiful widow out to have a good time after a horrible marriage. As far as she knows, she has no powers, like the sister in the first book. But she finds out differently during a particularly harrowing scene. The hero is the gorgeous brooding type. He is outcast from his clan. He was introduced in the first book in which he was kind of devious, which causes the characters in this book to distrust him in the beginning. You find out why he was the way he was in this book, and you will change your mind about him. Both the lead characters experience emotional growth, which I expect in a good story.
The plot revolves around a mad werewolf who, for some reason (don't worry, we find out why relatively early in the book), is after the heroine. Our hero is there to protect her because his former clan, whose responsibility it is to deal with rogue werewolves in London, doesn't take care of the problem.
Secondary characters from the first book show up as part of the plot, which contributes to the world building. I got it for a full credit because I enjoyed the first book. I actually liked this one more. There is a definite cliff-hanger for the 3rd book toward the end of this one, but it didn't interest me enough that I was waiting with bated breath.
