From bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the first in an explosive new trilogy set in the Elder Races world....

Her past is a blank, her future uncertain....

Recovering from a shooting, LAPD witch consultant Sophie Ross leaves her job and travels to the U.K. to search for answers about her childhood. When she encounters a Daoine Sidhe knight of the Dark Court, she becomes entangled in an ancient hatred between two arcane forces.

He has given his body and soul to fight for his people....

Barred from his homeland along with his surviving brother knights, Nikolas Sevigny is embroiled in a conflict that threatens everything he holds dear. Only by uniting his people's resources can they hope to prevail against Isabeau, the deadly Queen of the Light Court. He will do anything and use anyone to return home to Lyonesse.

When Nikolas encounters Sophie, he sees a tool to be used. The insouciant witch might be the key to unlocking every passageway that has been barred to the knights of the Dark Court, even as a fascination for her takes root in what's left of his soul.

Sophie has no intention of becoming anyone's pawn, yet the fierce Nikolas is so compelling, she can't deny the temptation that endangers her guarded heart.

As magic threatens Lyonesse, Queen Isabeau unleashes her merciless Hounds, and Nikolas and Sophie become embroiled in a race for survival. Meanwhile, the passion that ignites between them burns too hot to be denied and quickly turns into obsession.

Thank goodness they both know better than to fall in love...


I am a huge fan of The Elder Races series so when I found there was a spin-off series, what?? Yes, I had to check it out. I have had Moonshadow for months now, tempting me, torturing me, but I had not had time to read it. Until now.

When I finally made the time to sit down to enjoy this book I found that I liked it. The main characters were interesting and the had chemistry. The setting was nicely written and the plot was a nice set up for the series. I just was not wowed like I wanted to be.

I think that although the main characters were interesting I was not really into their love-hate relationship. There was nothing really endearing about them to me. I am a huge fan of Thea Harrison and will check out the next installment of this series and I am hoping that it will draw me in like her other series.
