Publisher's Summary

The grisly murder of a diplomat’s son in Central Park draws NYPD Detective Gerald Meeker and FBI Special Agent Andee Trakes into a twisted and confusing investigation. Within hours, the evidence indicates the man was executed in the manner saved for werewolves. Andee Trakes is assigned to liaison with a history professor who is an expert on folklore and legends.

Professor Alwyn Lloyd, handsome, articulate, and successful, not only agrees the method of death was indeed an execution, he claims to be a werewolf. Andee is torn between the desire to date the man and the suspicion to arrest him.

From the initial killing in the park, a bloody spree is ignited that soon has Andee and Lloyd forced to work together to protect themselves and family members.

Shadow of the Moon explores the world of werewolves and paints a picture of what is good about them as well as bad. The story explains what is beautiful as well as ugly about the wolf. The story is fast-paced and full of interesting characters and several twists and turns to keep both the fantasy as well as the suspense and romance enthusiasts entertained.

    "Incredible"

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This was an incredible book that I really enjoyed. It was imaginative and intricate and it really pulled me into the plot and the story and the characters. I liked the take on werewolves, and it felt really refreshing. I loved the relationship between Andee and Alwyn. I really didn’t want to put it down.

    "paranormal mystery!"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was not what I expected. I found Andee the female FBI agent to be contradictory. She would do or say something but then later on she would do or say something else but other then this I thought the book was great. I liked the fact that there was not one hero but both the main characters helped and saved each other which I find to be releastic and I am glad that the author went this way.
    There is violence and a rape scene but this happens behind closed doors.
    I would recommend this book to those who love romance, shifters and mystery.

    Story
    "Just as it says it is"

    I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I couldn't put this story down. It is everything the writeup says it is. It is fast paced (sometimes too fast). There are things that come out in the end that you think are strange when you read/hear them earlier in the story. There is romance, thrill, suspense and fantasy. Everything wrapped up in one story. This book offers some very funny and some very sad sections. The narrator did an excellent job with the characters. I felt what the characters felt. Each character was unique and the narrator made sure you understood that. Looking forward to more books by this author and narrator.

    Story
    "McSorley does it again!"
    If you could sum up Shadow of the Moon in three words, what would they be?

    Very Entertaining listening.


    What other book might you compare Shadow of the Moon to and why?

    This is somewhat out of my usual genre so that is difficult, but to me it incorporates the best of crime fiction and paranormal, for a synergy that is very riveting.


    What does Paul J. McSorley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice is rich and full and he gives the text integrity and believability that is essential in a story like this. The writing is solid, but the voice moves this into five stars overall.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Perpetrators don't have to have two legs.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to another book and another performance by this narrator.

    Story
    "A howling good book"
    What made the experience of listening to Shadow of the Moon the most enjoyable?

    The story moved along at a very decent pace, never hitting a slow point where the story dragged.


    Have you listened to any of Paul J. McSorley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time listening to PJM, and thought his performance was excellent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    A little long for just one sitting, but I did come back to it often until it was complete.

    Story
    "Interesting take on the werewolf genre"
    What made the experience of listening to Shadow of the Moon the most enjoyable?

    Not knowing where the story was really heading was definitely enjoyable and held my attention. The narrator was really great overall.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would have to say any scene with the niece was the best! Perhaps there is a story there??


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were frustrating moments and funny moments!


    Any additional comments?

    I would have given this story five stars but I had some issues with it. One was that they revealed some things in the end that had already been revealed. I blame that on editing. This story felt fresh, and I would recommend it!

    "Good, creative story"

    Enjoyable story, subtitle says it all. Good protagonist. A female angle on a werewolf story for sure. I recommend it. Narrator was particularly good.

    Story
    "Do werewolves exist?"

    This was the question that FBI agent Andee Drakes had to wrestle with after a grizzly murder in Central Park. As part of her research on werewolves, Andee is sent to consult w a history professor at a small university in Upstate NY. Professor Alwyn Lloyd is a very arresting man...he’s blunt, arrogant, and oh-so-sexy. Andee can’t help but be drawn to him. As the bodies start piling up, Andee has to really ask if werewolves exist. This is a fantastic PRN-thriller, w a little romance thrown in, by this author. The narration was on point.
    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Thank God it was Friday..."

    This book is excellent! I was pulled in from the first sentence and could not stop listening. I set the hour sleep timer several times and finally quit setting it because I couldn’t quit listening to go to bed. Luckily, I started it on Friday night! It’s now 9am on Saturday and I’m going to bed as soon as I write this review and start my next Kwen Griffeth book! This was my first book by this author, I have 2 more in my library and I can’t believe I’ve not listened to them yet. I now plan to rectify the situation this weekend. I will most definitely be picking up Griffeth’s other works, too. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

    Story
    "Great narration for this romance/urban fantasy"

    While felt like more romance than urban fantasy, the focus on relationships wasn't limited to the romance. Other important relationships featured include mother and son, surrogate uncle and niece, friends who become like sisters, a neighbor who becomes a friend, a woman and her dog, and more.

    Excellent narration. I love McSorley's range and rumble.
