Review

"This third entry in the Macleod werewolf family saga is the best one yet. Harper skillfully builds characters and situations that evoke empathy for the good citizens of both the human and shapeshifter species. The drama of the tracking and kidnapping of a young changeling child makes for page-turning suspense..." - RT (Romantic Times)

"Not your everyday werewolf story line. Changeling Dawn has romance, kidnapping, and murder...along with some mystery and intrigue." - Dee's Musings 

"Changeling Dawn is filled with so much passion, mystery, action and some heart ache (it even made me cry). It is so far the best in the series. Dani Harper brings so much passion into these characters and they seem so real. Kenzie and Josh have amazing chemistry that grabs your attention as soon as they meet." - Awesomesauce Book Club 

CHANGELING DAWN by Dani Harper (Brava / January 2012 / 978-0-7582-6518-0) "This third entry in the Macleod werewolf family saga is the best one yet. Harper skillfully builds characters and situations that evoke empathy for the good citizens of both the human and shapeshifter species. The drama of the tracking and kidnapping of a young changeling child makes for page-turning suspense, while the main characters' PTSD from childhood trauma and the Afghan war give them a great motive for their intense determination to rescue the little one." --Romantic Times Book Reviews, 4.5 STARS

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Archeologist Kenzie Macleod is a lone wolf shapeshifter because she has never forgotten her running away from raging human vigilantes when she was a fledgling in Scotland. That near fatal incident remains imprinted on her brain to trust no one even her kind as she conceals from both species what she truly is.

In the real final frontier of the Alaskan wilderness, Kenzie is driving towards a locale near Chistochina where she has permission to dig for Ahtna tribal artifacts. She gives a ride to Alaska Department of Fish and Wildlife expert Josh Talarkoteen who was stranded with two flats. When a cub becomes endangered, c he fretfully thinks back to the nightmare of another child in Afghanistan. Josh soon comes to Kenzie's camp to search for the lost cub that he knows is a Changeling just like Kenzie is as he belongs to the Tahltan tribe who read auras. As they try to help the frightened distrusting Changeling, Josh and Kenzie fall in love, but each has traumas to overcome while others have a different outcome in mind.

The latest Macleod werewolf romantic suspense (see Changeling Moon and Changeling Dream) is a superb thriller due to strong cast and location. Both protagonists suffer from Post traumatic Stress Disorder which motivates them to save the child while others in the area kidnap the young Changeling. Relationship driven with whether to trust or not to trust the key feelings, fans will enjoy this terrific taut tale.

This is the third book in the Changeling Series. If you haven't read this series yet you should start with book 1 "Changeling Moon" and book 2 "Changeling Dream". If you like werewolf paranormal romances, you'll love Dani's "Changeling" world. We see some of our old favorite characters in this book. Connor and his wife Zoey, James and his wife Jillian, Birkie, the one who has some psychic powers.This story mainly focuses on Kenzie though, who's an awesome archaeologist and anthropologist and who spends a lot of time away from home. She has her own personal reasons for staying away from home so much, even though she loves her family.

Kenzie meets Josh when he jumps out in the road on her way to a dig site. She almost runs him over but he takes the risk since he's in backcountry Alaska, with nowhere to go and his cell service not working so far out in the boonies. Kenzie gives him a ride to a nearby town and they chat along the way, especially about families and expectations from them. Something Kenzie doesn't realize on the way is that Josh has always been able to see aura's and knows exactly what her blue aura means, because she's not the first Changeling he's come across.

While Kenzie is getting her dig site up, she runs across an old friend/lover who's also an archaeologist. He's still crushing on her from several years ago, but Kenzie isn't interested in Nate as a mate. Nate is also a changeling, but he doesn't stir her inner wolf. Nate is also pretty bitter because he has to work hard to get grants in order to find new digs, where Kenzie comes from a rich family and she basically can dig wherever she wants, whenever she wants and Nate is a bit jealous of that fact.

Kenzie and Josh run into each other later on, especially since Kenzie has found a young wolf.

Format: Paperback
Dani Harper's latest, CHANGELING DAWN, is a spellbinding tale paranormal readers will love. Fans of the Macloed series will be glad to know the series is still going strong with the next incredible installment.

Kenzie Macleod knows the importance of family, but she also knows the value of working alone. That's why despite her ever growing family, she is heading to Alaska to start her next archaeological dig on her own. On the way, she meets Fish and Game office Josh Talarkoteen. Kenzie is doing her best to not be distracted by the gorgeous man, mainly because she wants nothing to do with a human. Kenzie is a Changeling, an entity that can switch from human to wolf form in a matter of moments. She doesn't see any future with a human despite her growing feelings towards him. Yet, Josh won't give up so easily. He knows what Kenzie is and doesn't feel such a minor thing should come between them. When they both discover a young changeling child on her own, the search is on to find her family. While it may bring Josh and Kenzie closer together, it will also bring them closer to danger.

CHANGELING DAWN does take some time to pick up. The novel starts out somewhat slow and takes a while to get to the point. What really drove this point home for me is that a few times I felt there was some unnecessary detail, which would sometimes bog down the story. I also had a little difficulty getting up to speed with the family and premise of the series since I haven't read the previous installments. As the book progressed, it easily came together to make a great novel, but some readers might find it advantageous to read the first novels in the series before continuing with CHANGELING DAWN.

Kenzie was a difficult character to warm up to.

Review Copy Provided by ARC from the Publisher

First, let me start off by saying that the cover alone drew me to this book. I mean it's absolutely gorgeous. Second, I'd like to say that Dani Harper is one of the most talented paranormal authors I've had the chance to come across. I've not read the first two books in the Changeling series, but I will most definitely be going back and adding them to my wishlist. Her ability to take the paranormal and create it in a way that is absolutely life-like is beautifully stunning!

Being a fan of paranormal romance, especially werewolf novels, I like to try new experiences in the paranormal realm. In Changeling Dawn we get so much out of this story that it takes the reader along time to just sit and reflect on how awesome this novel was. Kenzie, a beautiful archaeologist,a changeling wolf, and very much a loner, is instantly gripping. She reaches out to the reader and pulls them into the story to walk beside her. The reader becomes Kenzie and experiences the adventure through her eyes. Kenzie's on her way to a dig in Alaska when she comes across the very handsome Josh, a wildlife expert.

Josh is a man who has experienced so much in life. A life of war and pain, he's now a wildlife expert and has come across a precious little girl, one he knows needs help. One who is very much like the gorgeous changeling woman he's come across.

As Josh enlists the help of Kenzie to save this sweet little girl, the passion between them can't be denied. The attraction is more than strong and it's up to them to bury their past and pain and help a child overcome her fear.

Most definitely the best paranormal romance novel I've read to date.
