Blurb: After a year together, wolf shifter Derek Williams and vet Brian O’Donogue decide to marry. All Brian wants is to be legally part of Derek’s family, after his own disowned him for being gay. As far as Derek is concerned, he already belongs to his mate, heart, body, and soul. But their plans are put on hold when Derek discovers an injured young shifter, Tommy, one night while running as a wolf.
When they learn the truth behind Tommy’s presence in Washington, they are quickly drawn into a war that has waged in the shadows for decades. Brian, Derek, and their allies must fight against the Knights and their leader, Arcas, to prevent them from attaining an ancient scroll, one piece of a weapon that can destroy all shifters.
When worlds collide, no one will be spared.
Review: For readers who have at least read previous titles in this series, Shifting Moon returns to the original couple who started everything, Derek and Brian. Shifting Moon also returns to the present time after giving us the ‘journey’ of the magical ancient scrolls in the last three stories. We found out that the ancient scroll that previously ‘buried’ deep in the sea is now resurfacing and of course the Knights, led by Arcas, are trying to get their hands on it.
I can’t really say much, to be honest. I mean, I knew what I would get basically. It was nice to see how the story finally got back to the threat of the present time. It was nice to also get the update of Derek, Brian, and their pets (though there were also sniff moments regarding one of their pets). And I liked the prologue – with Arcas and his second-hand man, Gregor. Somehow it brought a different side to Arcas as a character; even if I wouldn’t know if it was genuine or not. So, overall I liked it, and I will still stick to the next book to see what the Knights will do.
For new readers – well, I advise you to at least read Brian and Derek’s book first. At least you can get a hand of this established couple.
Overall Impression: I liked it
