And Hawthorne's characters, both main and minor, have such glowing, refreshing personalities.

Shadow of the Moon is the fourth book of Rachel Hawhorne's Dark Guardian Novels. In this book Hayden is an empath who can sense all other shifter's emotions as if they were here own. Can you imagine physically going through intense pleasure, intense pain, pure fear, even though you have no idea why? Or who it is that's going through it? That's why Hayden leaves. After literally knowing what it's like to die by a Harvester's hands (think golem creatures intent on collect shifter's souls and making it so their bodies can't shift back to human) she runs away knowing she's next. Her full moon is only a month away and she refuses to put any of her pack in danger.

Now the one thing that I hate about all these books... Every girl goes through her shift on her 17th birthday full moon, she will die unless she has a mate.... at 17??? And what if that guy is 15 or 16? No that doesn't happen they are usually always older then the girl and knows before the girls know that she is the true mate. Then without the girl's consent they tattoo her name on their backs as a symbol of her being a true mate. Bleck! I am all for alphas... I love the thought of mates and sometimes a dominant male can be sexy. However at 17 I just picture myself watching anime, reading and can't imagine being mature enough to handle a 'true mate' let alone a dominant one. I really enjoyed that Brittany wasn't a shifter, I love that so far things have been a little different from the norm, but I really want to see this series evolve into having a girl shift by herself (without dying of course).

However.... this is a cute book, an especially cute paranormal one. Hawthorne keeps expanding her Shifters' world and putting new enemies in their paths. This ensures that we won't get too bored over time.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By James Goodwin on March 24, 2010
Format: Paperback
I take no pleasure in writing a less-than-positive review of a 'Dark Guardian' novel. As a fan of werewolves and well-crafted romances, I was drawn to the previous book, 'Dark of the Moon,' and largely enjoyed it. Afterward, I began looking forward to this one, and had also considered reading Book #1 in the meanwhile (the novels don't necessarily have to be read in order). This entry is well-written throughout, and has an interesting twist involved, but I have to admit to being disappointed overall.

I just don't find it romantic when one member of a relationship is overly controlling and forceful, and Daniel (who shows up to bring Hayden with him whether she likes it or not) is about as assertive and pushy as it gets. He even touches Hayden repeatedly without consent while throwing in little requests for obedience -- as one would do to a small child. None of this comes across as moving; it instead eliminates a sense of equality early on. The fact that he's polite about it, constantly "grinning," does not make it any less off-putting. And while Hayden is portrayed as having a strong will, it frequently crumbles in the face of shallow physical attraction. As a result, she's only half endearing as a protagonist. Since I couldn't enjoy the relationship -- which is at the core of a 'DG' story -- I couldn't really enjoy the novel overall. In my opinion, it would've been more romantic if he'd simply offered to watch over her in whatever decision she made, rather than trying to remove choice from the matter.

It's notable that at one point in the book, there's mention of a certain character in this series falling in love "slowly and over time." I couldn't help but dispute that claim, however, because a few days worth of changed feelings doesn't amount to "slowly.

As someone who really enjoyed the 3 books of the original trilogy, I was thrilled to see this new book come out. But...I found myself fairly disappointed with it. Yes, Daniel did appear in the earlier books, and the other Dark Guardians/elders from those books also appear here. Hayden, though, is a brand new character. Perhaps she's meant to be one of the unnamed other Dark Guardians (who voted on Connor), but then why not name her then? Overall I get the feeling that this book is disconnected from the others and feels a little too much like an unnecessary tag-on rather than a cohesive part of the series.

Plot-wise there are a couple things I find it challenging to get past: It's a little hard to believe that Daniel could have stayed with them for so long without shifting where someone could see him. It's not that I have a hard time accepting that there could be other flavors of shifters, just that he shouldn't have been able to keep his secret for so long. And the whole Harvester demon... It's like an abruptly invented 'bad guy' to replace the one defeated at the end of the third book.

I love the whole Dark Guardian series. All four are really good stories. They are sweetmteen romance stories with a great back story to carry the characters through.
