About the Author
Mythical, magical, memorable ... Dani Harper writes Paranormal Fantasy that will keep you up all night!
Dani Harper is a former newspaper editor whose passion for all things supernatural led her to a second career writing paranormal fantasy. There isn't anything she likes better than exploring myths and legends from many cultures, which serve to inspire her sizzling and suspenseful stories. A longtime resident of the Canadian north and southeastern Alaska, she now lives in rural Washington with her retired mountain-man husband.
Harper's first foray into fiction began with a series of successful wolf-shifter novels: CHANGELING MOON (2012 RITA finalist), CHANGELING DREAM, and CHANGELING DAWN. A darker werewolf tale bordering on urban fantasy followed: FIRST BITE.
More recently she's been bringing ancient faery legends into modern-day America with The Grim Series (STORM WARRIOR, STORM BOUND, STORM WARNED, and in 2016, STORM CROSSED).
Harper's latest release is a PNR for those who love ghost stories with a twist: THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT.

The reason I say "most" every minute is because when I started it I was really disappointed to find it was not a continuation of Zoey's adventures. I expected something more on the lines of the Anita Blake series by Laurell Hamilton or the the Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn where one follows the life of the main charactor(s). I didn't realize that the Dani Harper series was going to change the main charactor in each book.
However, that disappointment disappeared almost immediately. Jillian came alive in the first chapter and I enjoyed her story just as much as I did Zoey's. I also liked finding out how Zoey's life was going as a background to Jillian's story.
I highly recommend this book, along with the first one and the third, because, yes, I have read them all! So when is the next one coming out?
EDIT: I was very disappointed when doing a search for other books by Dani Harper to find that this same story was published in 2007 as "Heart of the Winter Wolf". I find no mention in "Changeling Dream" or on the Amazon discription of the book identifying it as being previously published under a different title and find this unsettling. I don't mind that the book has been republished under a different title but not having that information in the description of the book on Amazon or at least in the title page part of "Changeling Dream" is, in my opinion, deceitful. For that reason I have removed two of the original five stars I rated this book.
The author does a wonderful job of drawing the reader into the imaginative descriptive world of the Changelings.
The characters are so well developed that the reader cannot help but become emotionally invested in their lives portrayed and their struggle to overcome the damages done in their past. While the villain was a more minor secondary character, he still played a major part in the emotional and physical conflicts that had to be resolved without over shadowing the story.
There are definitely no wimpy characters in this story. Both male and female protagonists are strong survivors that make you want to see them get their HEA. They are also not so perfect that you want to gag.
This is absolutely a book that shows with actions and scenes then just merely relating a story - certainly a page turner.
All the actions are believable without any "HUH" moments.
When Jillian & James finally get together - you feel the love.
One reviewer mentioned that she was disappointed because this same story was published in 2007 as "Heart of the Winter Wolf" which rang a bell for me. Sure enough, after searching back through my E-reader files, I had bought that book back in 2007 from the original publishing company. Instead of buying the story again at that time I decided to just reread that one. IT'S NOT THE SAME EXACT BOOK - close - but not the same. It was about Jillian and James but it was definitely written befor CHANGELING MOON because Conner was not mated or had met Zoey yet. Also, the story was not as polished or as developed. In fact after several chapters, I remembered that I had been disappointed in the story, it never drew me in and that I did not even finish that book.
Dan's skills as a writer have certainly improved as I could see after reading CHANGELING MOON so I decided to go ahead and take a chance and purchase CHANGELING DREAM. It was so worth it. While I would not recommend HEART OF THE WINTER WOLF, this version of the story, CHANGELING DREAM, is so much better and worth the money.
It's a quick, fun read. Good steam, great chemistry between the H/h. Strong supporting cast. As previously, her 'bad guy' has a backstory that we don't really know - a little wooden - but that can be forgiven. Overall, it's highly enjoyable. I'm looking forward to seeing more of Harper's work.
