Critical Acclaim for Shepherd's Moon:
"Mantle can count me in for the next installment!" ~ By The Beach Reads
"Mantle stirs the reader's imagination with vivid character and setting details..." Grammatic Effect
"This author's book has bite!" ~ San Tan Valley News
"Promising new start to a new fantasy series..." ~ Brian Triplett, Seattle Examiner
"Just good old-fashioned adventure with incredible characters!"
"This book had me hooked right from the start!"
"The book provides a CRAZY twist at the end that I never saw coming."
"Can't wait for the next in the series!"
"Stacy Mantle's Shepherd's Moon is a rousing new addition to the fantasy field. Not only does the author speak with authority when it comes to the animals in her book (both natural and supernatural), but she has created a main character who is engaging and real, and who I can't wait to follow from here...especially after that ending!"
--James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Eye of God
As the official "were-whisperer" of the Southwest Territory, Alexandra handles several of the "higher-risk" Weres that run the area. From a shape-shifting, rebel rousing coyote to a troubled were-jaguar and her cubs, the characters are what make this book relatable - and guarantees a long series life.
-- San Tan Valley Today
"I think the story is well written and the characters were fully developed. They weren't perfect and are like real individuals. Each had their own flaws of personality which I like, as that makes it a little more "realistic" for me. The ending sets you up for a following book, which I cannot wait to get my grubby little paws on. If you like Were books with some suspense, then this is definitely something that needs to go on your TBR List, ASAP!"
--Passionate Book Divas
"Mantle takes the genre convention and breathes new life into it in ways that will probably give her readers a deeper appreciation for a variety of animals ranging from cougars, to horses, to ordinary house cats."
-- Brian Triplet, Spokane Book Examiner
