Seems to have a lot of similarities with Laurell Hamilton's Meredith Gentry series and Anne Bishops Black Jewel series. In fact, if you read those books, this feels like fanfiction. The writing is awkward - dialog sort of stilted (moves from casual speech to formal at odd times), characterization very one dimensional, romance unbelievable, and the protagonist is a Mary Sue who everyone falls in love with for no good reason. She has 1 magical ability at the beginning of the book and keeps gaining new ones until she has about 8 by the end - a little overboard and a little cliched, aspects I noticed a lot throughout the book. I have a feeling you are either going to love this book if what you want is something trashy + erotic + pure fluff, otherwise you may not like this.
A smoldering debut novel exploring the passion, hunger, and danger that can break loose in the moonlight.
From the time she was a child, Mona Lisa knew she was different-but she never knew how different until a man of otherworldly beauty appeared during her night shift in the ER. Gryphon is hurting and hunted and he attracts her as no man ever has before. He is a Monère, one of the children of the moon-and what's more, so is she.
Long exiled from the moon, the men of the Monère serve-and mate with-imperious Queens who can channel the rays of their far-off homeland. Gryphon believes that Mona Lisa is a Queen- perhaps the first of Mixed Blood ever known. But her introduction to the nighttime court of the Monère, simmering with intrigue, casual lust, and calculated cruelty, is far from smooth.
Ok this book was really good. It was different than your normal paranormal in my opinion. This has shape shifters, demons and vampires. It has sex and it has an actual story behind it. I know that some reviews are saying that this book is similar to Laurel K Hamilton and Anne Bishop. I have not read either one but if it's true I would not mind starting to read theirs books either.
I really enjoyed this book ...it was refreshing to have a unique storyline. This book was still romantic without the blatant romance found in some and still had the edginess of a Urban Fantasy. Very original and tastefully done. I look forward to others in this series. The characters and the way they evolve with the story were believable. Really enojyed this one.
I was incredibly disappointed in this story. I had the feeling that this author had written a decent story, submitted it to an editor, and the editor sent it back with a note reading, "Put some sex in it." I felt like it brought the story down a notch and degraded the character. Which is a shame, because it is SO creative! Oh well.
