In attempts to elude the fast life of Vancouver in wake of a tragic personal defeat, Zoey Tyler seeks refuge in the small, drama-free town of Dunvegan, which seems warm and inviting at first, but seems to have mysteries and secrets of its own. The whole "heroine escaping her horrible past" clich�?�© in romance novels is overrated, but for once, I was glad to see the swirling crisis actually be revealed bit by bit, rather than culminating to a disappointing climax. Harper fluidly incorporates Zoey's past demons with those she finds in Dunvegan, making for a rich, complicated plot. Changelings, which differ from werewolves due to their greater power, and their ability to change into human form whenever they please, are creatures you don't encounter often in paranormal romance, so I enjoyed this fascinating twist on the mythical beings in a contemporary world. Readers get both Connor's lupine and Zoey's human perspectives, which kind of did make the story drag on, but was overall highly revealing. When one enraged beast sabotages the Connor's pack by resurrecting old werewolf folklore which exposes real-life changelings, the entire public is terrorized, and the changelings of Dunvegan, in grave danger. Somehow, Zoey is connected to all of this... and it's Connor and Connor alone who can show her why. As much as I liked the supernatural elements, the romance aspect is unconvincing-plenty of insta-love going around-but the love scenes, woooowhee! If you enjoy hot hot alpha male sex, you need to pick up this book now. The characters are disappointing too. The secondary characters such as Jessie the pack leader and Connor's playful-yet-equally-sexy brothers are great-I loved them-but Zoey is extremely dislikable. She's supposed to be "strong" and "independent" but she's quite aloof, and rather stiff-necked. She says and does the rashest things that may give her the strapping young reporter vibe in a romance novel, but would literally get her nowhere in real life. Connor, too, isn't that great. He's huge and sexy and tough, yeah, but nothing about him really clicked for me. He's unnecessarily overprotective of Zoey-even though he knows nothing about her-and again, is an ideal, but pretty unrealistic hero. Pros: Smoldering chemistry between Zoey and Connor // Secondary characters are great, especially the Macleod brothers! Mmmm! // Connor is a fantastic alpha hero // Refreshing take on changelings, as opposed to werewolves Cons: Changelings seem to be the ideal species-there's basically nothing they can't do // Neither Zoey nor Connor are particularly likable // Physical attraction is well-portrayed, but actual romance and love storyline unrealistic Verdict: Since I've never read a changeling romance before, I am glad I gave Changeling Moon a chance; Dani Harper introduces paranormal lovers to a world of werewolf folklore, bloodsucking predators, and sizzling romance. While this first book of the Changeling series isn't something I would necessarily recommend or read again, if you want to try your hand at changelings, you might want to consider this one. Rating: 5 out of 10 hearts (3 stars): Doesn't particularly light any of my fires; I feel indifferent about this book.

3.5 stars In this new world of werewolves known as Changelings, the Pack is a tight-knit and caring community. But when a rogue Changeling threatens the humans, animals, and the Pack as a whole in their little town, something has got to be done. If only the rogue Changeling wasn't getting stronger by the minute. I enjoyed reading this new addition to the Paranormal Romance world. I thought it had a good balance between new world building, character building, the overall story, and the romance between Connor and Zoey. The one thing I will say about the romance though is that it flowed really well and was pretty gradual in the beginning, but then the "l" word and "forever" started being thrown around a little too fast for me. I think it would have been nice to have a bit more steaminess, but at the same time a little bit more of a struggle in their relationship. It just seemed a little too easy for them at times. However, I did like the characters in the book. I liked Zoey. I thought she had a really good balance of strong-willed and able to melt into her man's arms going on. She annoyed me a bit when Connor first told her about him. But at the same time, if I was in her shoes in real life, I probably would have reacted the same way, so I can't say too much about that. I also loved that the Pack leader was a female. You don't often see that in werewolf stories. Sometimes they'll be second in command, but not top dog (no pun intended). So I loved that. I loved that Connor and his family originated from Scotland. I really like it when a werewolf story does that. Although, I thought it would have been better if Connor still had his Scottish accent. That would have made him all the more sexy! Overall I thought this was a pretty solid first in a series book. I'm hoping that the next book will have a bit more conflict as far as the relationship goes just to make things a little more interesting. But I am looking forward to seeing the Macleod's find love and to see this world develop and grow as the books continue. *Provided by author (publicist) for review.show more
