Moonshifted by Cassie Alexander

Edie Spence, Book 2

Synopsis: After surviving a brutal vampire attack, Nurse Edie Spence is ready to get back to work—attending to supernatural creatures in need of medical help. But her nursing skills are put to the test when she witnesses a hit-and-run on her lunch break. The injured pedestrian is not only a werewolf, he’s the pack leader. And now Edie’s stuck in the middle of an all-out were-war…

With two rival packs fighting tooth and nail, Edie has no intention of crossing enemy lines. But when she meets her patient’s nephew—a tattooed werewolf named Lucas with a predatory gleam in his eye that’s hard to resist—Edie can’t help but choose sides. The question is: can she trust this dangerous new ally? And can she trust her own instincts when she’s near him? Either way, Edie can’t seem to pull away—even if getting involved makes her easy prey…

Review: After a very good first novel, it was a pleasure to immerse myself in the second volume of the adventures of Edie Spence. I enjoyed the first book with its originality and the hospital environment in which we evolve. And this new novel is no exception to the rule!

We find our young heroine in her life full of events. Well, since she knows Anna, she has many more problems than usual. Okay, it’s true, that working in Y4 does not help either. But then when she thought she could have a normal life again, everything turns upside down in a few seconds. Indeed, Anna needs her for her vampiric ceremony, a ceremony that seems very important. In addition to this, she finds herself in the middle of a werewolves power struggle when she saves their pack leader after an accident. But it is not over, her family comes to see her and her brother is here as well, being convinced that he will be able to be a better person now, although she isn’t really convinced about that. I must say that after all the troubles; it is difficult to trust him. And even if she wants to, she realizes that he always manages to find problems whatever he does.

After discovering a first volume that plunges us into the vampires world, this one allows us to discover the werewolves one. And I must say it is much more complex than we might think. We meet some new characters, we quickly enjoy. I especially liked Lucas, the nephew of the pack leader who seems quite interested in our little Edie. And I must say that I completely fell under his spell! I think it is difficult to be otherwise. We find a young man who despite what he would like, has a destiny he doesn’t want. But of course this is impossible and we see how he manages his feelings and how he can control this situation. He is brave, kind, but tough when necessary. However we see the flaws in his shell throughout the story, showing us his fragility. Asher is also there and it’s true he does everything we can to help our heroine, and although I appreciate him, I really think Lucas is as important. However, I was quite surprised to not see our zombie, I thought he would appear in the book, but with all these changes, we finally don’t care about it. There’s so much in this novel and we’re carried away by the story as soon as we read it. I admit that as soon as Lucas is featuring, we only see him!
I really enjoyed this novel and it was difficult to put it down once started. However, I was very surprised by the end of the book. We wonder how Edie will manage to find a way out. This is terrible because once finished we only want more and have the third book in hand. This novel starts some big changes for our heroine and I can not wait to read more. I just have to wait I think.

  1. I love it when a sequel is just as good as the first. It so rarely happens–to me at least. I have had this series on my TBR list for a while now it sounds like one I would really enjoy. I should get a move on and get book 1, now >.< Fab review, Melliane!
