I enjoyed the mythology surrounding the Chrechte and thought that Monroe did an excellent job of distinguishing the three shifter clans by elaborating on their various beliefs, histories and abilities. I also liked how she connected the two main characters via a past event. It added context to the story and went a long way in explaining the initial hostility between Ciara and Eirik. The historical aspect of this novel helped add a bit of fact to a predominantly fictional story. I enjoyed learning about the Scottish clans and the battle for the throne. These elements made the Children of the Moon universe feel all the more real.
Ciara is an amazing character and I was easily able to understand her reasoning for not wanting to get close to anyone. With a past like hers, I completely get why she closed her heart to everyone. Thank goodness for her adoptive parents, Talorc and Abigail, because without their love and understanding Ciara would have probably been only a shell of a person. I enjoyed watching her take baby steps towards learning how to trust and love again. When she finally acknowledges that she's a Sinclair I cried right along side the other characters.Read more ›
Paranormal Romance - Sept. 4th, 2012
4 ½ stars
Battling shifters and powerful stone of destiny make for an enthralling paranormal romance.
Ciara is a wolf shifter with a touch of the sight. She is plagued by prophetic dreams. When she dreams of a magical stone of untold power she innocently tells her brother. But her brother craves its abilities. He vows to find it and exploit its magic. While searching for the stone with her brother's friends, they come across young bird shifters and try to kill them in their prejudice and hatred. But before Ciara can try to save them a magnificent dragon comes and incinerates her brother and his friend! Devastated by the loss of her brother she is still relieved that the young shifters are safe but is haunted by the terrible dragon.
It is years later and the dragon shifter is secretly revealed as the true bird king. His name is Eirik, and his duty is to his people. Although he is the rightful king he succeeds his position to a wolf clan. For the bird race is dying and to have and chance of survival they must merge with the more prolific wolf clan led by Laird Talorc. However, Liard Talorc adopted Ciara when she became an orphan. Now Eirik and Ciara meet again. This time a grown up Ciara and Eirik feel an instant attraction. Ciara's prophetic dreams endanger her health. But Eirik's dragon is the only thing strong enough to protect her dreams and Ciara realizes they have a deeper connection. However, her dreams of the elusive stone will not let her completely rest and she is sent on a quest to bring it back to her clan. But others want the stone for themselves....Read more ›
This is the equivalent of reading about Dick and Jane for adults. It's actually a great premise for a story. It's just too bad that Monroe's editors couldn't bring up the quality of the sentences. Nor did they pay attention to the language used. Yes, it's bad enough that it is very noticeable. "Stay on topic". Really??? A twentieth century boardroom, sure, but in the twelfth century...?
The pre-Prologue provides a background on the Chrechte, the shapeshifters who populate this series. The prologue provides a more recent background on Ciara and how she came to be living with the Sinclair clan.
Monroe keeps leaping from crisis to scene to spectacle attempting to create drama and tension, yet nothing rings true. It's more gag-worthy than interesting and simply spoils the story. Mairi's statement that she should have stayed; the reason behind Lais' belief that he is not worthy; Miss Drama Queen, oops, I mean Ciara's stumbling discovery about love and sex; and, the initial sexual interaction between Lais and Mairi...gimme a break. In fact, make it two or three!
Oooh, "I feel so strange" as she "touches her own nipple". Gag. Ciara is willing to mate with Eirik, but she refuses to marry him? What difference does it make? Of course, we have to have the obligatory "oh, he doesn't love me", which lasted about fifteen minutes. I think that Monroe has now checked off all the "required" elements for a romance...please, god...!
What healer wouldn't assess the patient's overall status? I mean, he starts with the scratches on her feet?? What?Read more ›
