Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Edie Spence, nurse to the paranormal, falls victim to her own messianic complex in Alexander's entertaining sequel to Nightshifted. After Edie witnesses a hit-and-run and tries to save the victim—who turns out to be the werewolf king—she is hunted by strange weres. Is it a matter of pack politics, or is it about Edie's agreement to be the ceremonial ambassador of the living vampire Anna? Edie's story is driven by her inability to say no to Anna, her junkie brother, the werewolf king's daughter, or even a ghost-possessed vampire cyborg servant. Her casual attitude toward sex ( I'm going to take you like I own you, Edie, says her lover; Just for tonight, she replies) leads to some steamy scenes of stress relief, and her determination to remain emotionally aloof is wonderfully undermined by her developing friendships. Edie's growing personality—and the cliffhanger ending—will keep fans hooked to the trilogy's conclusion. Agent: Michelle Brower, Folio Literary Management. (Dec.)


“Cassie Alexander shows up twice on my Best of 2012 list. With her brand new Edie Spence series, she singlehandedly slaked my thirst for new urban fantasy. I cannot wait to see how many slots she nabs this coming year.” ―Angieville

Moonshifted starts some big changes for our heroine and I cannot wait to read more.” ―Between Dreams and Reality

Moonshifted is even better than the first. There was more action, more snarkiness, and even more sexiness. I can't wait to read more from Alexander and more about Edie Spence.” ―Book Sake

“You can feel the life pulse through this novel. I highly recommend Moonshifted if you are interested in a fast paced urban fantasy with mystery, mayhem, family drama, secrets, sex, lies, politics and a very human, very relatable, protagonist who faces the supernatural and doesn’t back down or give up! I am eagerly waiting for the 3rd book. I need more!” ―The Book Tart

“A fast, sexy return to the utterly unique world of Edie Spence. Moonshifted takes the world Cassie Alexander presented in Nightshifted and adds a whole new level of danger and intrigue. Absolutely recommended.” ―Seanan McGuire, award-winning author of Ashes of Honor

“I enjoyed every bit of this book. Edie Spence series is for sure one of the best UF books around.” ―Under the Covers

“Cassie Alexander's Edie Spence series stands out among a sea of new urban fantasy series as distinctive, creative and as striking the right balance between action and character drama. If you're a fan of urban fantasy and your not reading this, you're missing out.” ―Clear Eyes, Full Shelves

“The perfect amount of humor and horror. Moonshifted absolutely shone in the sequel department, extending my affection for the characters, while introducing new angles to sink my teeth into. This is urban fantasy of the highest order. However will I survive the wait for book three?” ―Angieville

“The best debut I've read all year. Nightshifted is simply amazing!” ―Kat Richardson, bestselling author of the Greywalker series

Nightshifted's main character, nurse Edie Spence, has a distinctive, appealing, and no-nonsense style that you won't quickly forget. Add to that a paranormal population that needs medical care for some very odd reasons, and you have a winner of a debut novel.” ―Kate Elliott, author of the Cold Magic series

“Fresh, exciting, dark, and sexy, Nightshifted is excellent urban fantasy that grabs you by the throat and pulls you along for a wild ride. Cassie Alexander is an author to watch!” ―Diana Rowland, author of Mark of The Demon

“Nurse Edie Spence is gutsy, compassionate and determined―traits that quickly manage to get her into serious trouble! A host of intriguing characters enliven this story that is edgy, funny and exciting. A very impressive debut!” ―Romantic Times on Nightshifted

“Medical drama and vampire cold wars intersect in this solid urban fantasy debut. Alexander's zombies are particularly well designed, and the hospital environment adds an intriguing additional dimension.” ―Publishers Weekly on Nightshifted

“I loved this book. What a breath of fresh air! It's filled with fascinating characters, including an enigmatic zombie firefighter, weres, shapeshifters, and of course, vampires. A memorable scene with a STD afflicted dragon (yup) had me on the edge of my seat, the budding romance with Ti (zombie firefighter!) is sweet and tender, and I just plain loved hanging out with Edie. Nightshifted is a very strong start to what promises to be a wonderful new series!” ―My Bookish Ways

“Edie is a fun character with heart and charisma, making it easy to fall for her and want to see her succeed in all of her adventures, whether they be dealing with paranormal patients, evil vampires, or potential lovers. If you like your urban fantasy to have a dose of romance, then Nightshifted is for you. Highly recommended.” ―The Debut Review

“I really enjoyed the new type of monster mythologies introduced in NIGHTSHIFTED. I especially liked the idea that you need a certain amount of blood exposure before becoming a full fledged vampire. I can't wait to read more about the Y4 wing of County Hospital's residents and this strange new world when the next book comes out.” ―All Things Urban Fantasy

“Alexander's first novel launches a new series that should appeal to fans of medical thrillers as well as urban fantasy.” ―Library Journal on Nightshifted

"Edie Spence series is for sure one of the best UF books around." ~Under the Covers

Moonshifted is the second installment of Edie Spence series. Ms. Alexander delivered another well written and engaging story. She managed to make this book even better with a more detailed but complex plot. I devoured it in about two and half days which is big for me considering I'm a slow reader.

Edie continues to get her nursing experience working at a secret unit called Y4 where her patients are of the supernatural kind. If you read Nightshifted (book1), you know that Edie is a special nurse. She is a patient advocate and she goes above and beyond her duties. She is good at what she does and can handle high stress level situations. Well, she definitely proved that here when chaos occurs at her work as well as her personal life.

The world building is more in-depth in this installment. Ms. Alexander definitely widened the world, it's not just limited to the patients in Y4 but even beyond the hospital walls. Edie is more involved with the faction of vampires' and the wolves' hierarchies during the overturn of leaders. Along with the caring for a patient who happens to be the Alpha of his pack; she also promised to be responsible and be a part of a vampire coronation ceremony. Both factions are involved in a power struggle that is of course brewing into war. Edie just finds herself in the midst of all the chaos. I'm telling you, they all seem to flock to her for help. While she does well with this type of chaos, I can't say the same for her love life.

She still doesn't have one. After her zombie boyfriend left her she just can't seem to shake him off.

Edie Spence is just recuperating from her last adventure in paranormalland and is now back at work as a RN at the secret Y4 wing of County Hospital. Now, Y4 is the secret wing of the hospital that takes care of the city's paranormals and their lackeys. It's operated by the mysterious Consortium, of which more will be heard of in this novel, and whose watchdogs are "The Shadows". The Shadows feed on misery, pain, depression, and despair, and they have the ability to effect a person's physiology and tinker with a person's mind and to rewrite person's memories. Fun, eh?

Today Edie is on her way to work with a fellow Y4 employee when she becomes enmeshed in another adventure. As she is coming to work today she sees King Winter, the ruthless Alpha leader of the Deepest Snow werewolf clan flattened by a rogue Mack truck. As it happens, there will be much carrying on, but little genuine sorrow for his fate. It is through the Deepest Snow clan that Edie will meet Lucas, who will be both Edie's intermediary between her and the Deepest Snow clan and Edie, and who will be another possible romantic interest while he is ordered to watch over her.

Edie will also be caught in-between the power play of the werewolf clans of the House Of Gray, who is blamed for the attempted assassination of King Winter, and the Deepest Snow clan. However, as the novel progresses we wonder "Are the House of Gray responsible, or not"? We've all read way too many mysteries to take the obvious at face value.

Meanwhile, Anna is back, and this time not only is she being tested by other vampire clans for a possible chance to start her own house or clan.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Enjoyable main character and world but the plot left me a little confused.

Opening Sentence: “Who knew a Code Silver isn’t when an old-timer tries to beat you with their walker?” Charles said as he double-looped his scarf around his neck.

The Review:

The second novel in Cassie Alexander’s Edie Spence series, Moonshifted, begins with Edie witnessing a hit and run accident. A few months have passed since the events of Nightshifted, Edie has since healed up and returned back to work as a nurse on the Y4 floor of her hospital. Y4 is the secret wing that treats supernaturals and those close to them. Thankfully, Edie and her colleague Charles were the first on the scene of the man hit and run so when they realized he was a werewolf they quickly worked to get him under control and to the Y4 wing.

Edie Spence is probably the most unremarkable woman in an urban fantasy series. She doesn’t have anything special that she brings to the plate except for the fact that she is a human that knows about the supernatural. She doesn’t come off as overly pretty, she’s a few pounds overweight but not obese by any means, she doesn’t have a “wow” factor but for some reason, the supernatural is drawn to her. This may come off as harsh but I’m just trying to explain how she is the plainest Jane but down to earth girl in this supernatural world, although she has no problem with cussing and the occasional one night stand. As a third shift nurse she is pretty much a loner, she really only hangs out with her co-workers at work and making friends with the occasional supernatural who gets thrown into her life.
