Review: Shepherd's Moon by Stacy Mantle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
In Shepherd's Moon the main character is Alexandra Wilde. She is a shepherd. That means that she has the ability to talk to animals and weres in their head and even control them if need be. It is a pretty demanding task!
Alex and her pack of various shifters, rescued a mother jaguar and her cubs from a very bad situation. In doing so she broke some laws and now has to work for the police when they require her services. Lately she is being called in more and more.
Things escalate when she begins to find creatures that she cannot read. It is unheard of! About the same time, a new member appears on her boss's team. She has a hard time deciding whether he is a friend or foe. She only knows that he is a thorn in her side and she does not trust him!
Things continue to escalate and they need to find out who is doing this and stop them! The plot has a lot of action and adventure. I would not want to be on Alex's bad side!
Shepherd's moon was enjoyable. It was completely different from the other shifter books that I've read. I only have two complaints. It seemed to drag on in some places and I found myself looking to see how many more pages I had left. Also there are a few hints of romance in the book but I would have liked to see more! I'm hoping that Stacy Mantle will give us more of that in the next book.
I recommend this to anyone who wants to read a new take on shifters, or who likes action and adventure.
I received an ebook copy of this book from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.
I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!
