Mona Lisa Eclipsing by Sunny
Paranormal Romance -April 5th, 2011
4 stars

Mona Lisa Eclipsing, like all of Sunny's books are a non-stop thrill ride. This story is full of dark, lush fantasy and huge changes for the heroine.

As a child of the Moon (Monere), Mona Lisa has finally begun to adjust to her life as one of the rare Monere Queens. She shoulders a great responsibility to the other Monere that depend upon her. Partially human, she never realized her Monere heritage until six months ago. She is coming to grips with special abilities and realizing her full power as a Monere.

Recently, she rejected her lover Dante. Dante is a powerful warrior who betrayed Mona Lisa in a past life. But Mona Lisa has decided to forgive him and wants him back. She and some of her elite men discover Dante is in Cozumel and they plan to retrieve him. But their mission goes wrong and Mona Lisa is injured and captured! When she wakes up she has no memory of her past and is easily duped into believing the charismatic and attractive stranger named Roberto. Roberto is actually a drug lord and is unaware of his Monere heritage. (As a Monere they are not physically attracted to humans.) Mona Lisa is the only female Monere he has ever met and is captivated by his attraction to her. As a result, he is determined to keep her. Unfortunately, her memory loss leads her to believe his lies and also results in hurting the other men in her past who love her. Will Mona Lisa regain her memory? Will she and her other lovers be able to reconcile?

This book was an exhilarating read. I love this author's vivid imagination as she seamlessly change scenery and adds plot twists that keep it in high gear.

I agree with the reviewers that say this book is not as good as the others in plot or character development. In fact I think that the only reason for this book was to end the series. Again, I agree with another reviewer that it was not ended very well. I wish I would have gotten it from the library. Sunny should have just given us a free ebook novella of the last part of this book.

After a 2-year wait for the next book in the series (during which I almost died from anxiety and despair from thinking maybe Sunny had given up on Mona Lisa and intended on continuing only with Lucinda's books), Mona Lisa Eclipsing came to me like a blow in the head.

I was happy and apprehensive to know that Dante would return... then I started reading.

At the beggining the book made me writhe with impatience over the difficulty of finding Dante and then having to go through Mona Lisa's (very painful) memory loss. We were introduced to new characters, such as jaguar-shifter/Mixed Blood/drug dealer, Roberto, and other new enemies, such as the wild Monère controlled by Mona Sierra.

The sex scenes were very few, if compared to the previous books, proving that Sunny tried her best to make up for lost time with real innovations in the story. And that she did.
Mona Lisa had the incentive of the Mother Queen to spread out the knowledge of the Monère race to humans, after a televised accident with a rogue male warrior. With the help of press and the apparent "understanding" of the autorities, she accomplished it.

Now we can only patiently wait for the next volumes to see the actual response of the other Queens, Mixed Bloods and Rogues around the world, (which promises to be so very interesting, not to mention challenging), and hope that our brilliant and beloved author Sunny doesn't make us suffer so much (again) while we do so.

If you're a true fan of the series, then you'll enjoy this book. Plain and simple. If you have never read this series before, you must, MUST start at the beginning or else your appreciation for Mona Lisa and the characters around her will not be the same and I think you will not really enjoy this read.

As far as my own preferences, I'll agree with most reviewers and say that this book was certainly not as good as the others but I certainly sensed character development. There was only so far Sunny could take Mona Lisa is such a short timeline, because she certainly had developed her well in the preceding books. Four books and years of waiting for them all to publish and the story line is still based on 6-months. So I understood where Sunny was going and I think it was fine. Although, the end was most un-satisfying, because I have not heard rumors of any more books for this particular series, and I was left with burning curiosity to learn what happens.

After being pouty and disappointed, I read the Lucinda books and was pleasantly surprised to read how she overlapped the stories of Mona Lisa so well -- that is a good suggestion to any Sunny fan who want more of her world.

I would have wished for some differences in story lines, but hopefully, if Sunny should continue the Lucinda series, we'll at least get more. \

Let me start off by saying that I've all the books in the series; and, I'm a true fan. What I loved about the series was the other world. Watching the characters of the Monere society interact with the Heroine Mona Lisa. Watching as she tries to understand their world and changes their world because of her experience of being a Mixed Blood. So naturally, I enjoyed Mona Lisa's bout with Mona Sierra, learning more about Dante and how he is perceived by others. I didn't much care for Mona Lisa getting amnesia especially since the Monere are such a dynamic species and Mona Lisa possesses so many powers having lived other lives, Mona Lyra etc. But, thank goodness for it because I needed the rehashing of past events to refresh my memory. Sunny you took too long to write this one. Anyway, the book was very unsatisfying. It certainly wasn't worth the wait.

I'm not a fan who compares Sunny to other authors and thinks she steals the ideas of others...whine whine whine; those reviewers are entitled to their opinion; but, dang stop reading the series if you feel that way. Damn we're in book 5 already. Sorry for the tangent.

Anyway I love the characters and I've missed them. I wanted more interaction with them. Them with Mona Lisa, them with each other, them in Monere society, and them fighting to overcome the next peril. Okay so Sunny wants to broaden their world and give herself more options for plot development; but, I need more Monere after being starved for so long. I don't want them mixing with the humans at least not until book 8. I want to watch as they live in their Monere and Hell societies. I wanted this book to be the best in the series and it was the worst. You can't a man a thimble of water when he has been in a desert with no one water and expect him to be satisfied.
