Publisher's Summary

Recovering from a shooting, LAPD witch consultant Sophie Ross leaves her job and travels to the UK to search for answers about her childhood. When she encounters a Daoine Sidhe knight of the Dark Court, she becomes entangled in an ancient hatred between two arcane forces.
Barred from his homeland along with his surviving brother knights, Nikolas Sevigny is embroiled in a conflict that threatens everything he holds dear. Only by uniting his people's resources can they hope to prevail against Isabeau, the deadly Queen of the Light Court. He will do anything and use anyone to return home to Lyonesse.
When Nikolas encounters Sophie, he sees a tool to be used. The insouciant witch might be the key to unlocking every passageway that has been barred to the knights of the Dark Court, even as a fascination for her takes root in what's left of his soul.
Sophie has no intention of becoming anyone's pawn, yet the fierce Nikolas is so compelling, she can't deny the temptation that endangers her guarded heart.
As magic threatens Lyonesse, Queen Isabeau unleashes her merciless hounds, and Nikolas and Sophie become embroiled in a race for survival. Meanwhile, the passion that ignites between them burns too hot to be denied and quickly turns into obsession.
Thank goodness they both know better than to fall in love....

Loved it!

I wanted to title this review "Nope!" but was afraid to confuse people. What a fun book! Sophie and Nik are two of the most fun characters I've read in awhile and like all of Harrison's books, this one had sexy heat to spare! The story was a nice spin on the existing Elder races world, the side characters were fabulous, and I just want to go back and reread because it would feel like a warm snuggly blanket.

As always, Sophie Eastlake does a brilliant job with the narration. She does men's voices especially well--Nik was super sexy--and she's got great timing.

Definitely recommend!

It could have been a 4 but...

Would you listen to Moonshadow again? Why?

No, I usually don't


Would you be willing to try another book from Thea Harrison? Why or why not?

Yes. Love her world and characters (main and side)


Which scene was your favorite?

The action in old house when all the characters came together to find the shifts. The interactions with Sophie and Robyn, I loved their relationship! And I loved his character


Any additional comments?

Please STOP repeatedly using the words glare, glower and imperious.. They were used so often they took me out of a great story, due to their repetitiveness! Please STOP making your female characters so unlikable at times they are unreadable. Sophie was both endearing at times and at others so OTT it made it extremely hard to like her. It was as if she had a split personality. I understand there needs to be bumps in the road, but I felt her "independence" tantrums were over done to point they made her sweet nature turn vile and contemptuous. Please don't continue this. Women can be independent without being ugly.
