Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Thea Harrison comes the final story in her spellbinding Moonshadow trilogy…

King Oberon reigned over his Dark Court in Lyonesse for centuries until an assassination attempt laid him low. Now he lies unconscious in his snow-bound palace while his Power battles the enchantment that threatens to end his life.

A skilled trauma surgeon and magic user, Dr. Kathryn Shaw reigns at the top of her profession in New York. Then comes a challenge she can’t resist - she is asked to cure the incurable. Just getting close enough to try healing Oberon is a dangerous proposition. When she does reach him, he awakens too soon.

Roused from darkness by Kathryn’s presence, Oberon confronts the beautiful stranger who claims she wants to save his life. But the enchantment has frozen his emotions. How can he learn to trust her when he can’t feel anything?

Oberon’s desire is icy, devoid of all tenderness. Not only must Kathryn match wits with him, she must also fight her reaction to his touch, because there is so much more at stake than her own endangered heart.

For the Dark Court faces its most deadly peril yet. Its ancient enemy Isabeau, Queen of the Light Court, is obsessed with its annihilation, and Oberon must be brought to remember his loyalty and affection for his people.

Because if he won’t fight for them, Lyonesse itself may very well be destroyed…

Lion heart

The 3rd in the storyline it followed the threads of the cross over passage and DrCatherine Ross who was a surprisingly effective partner. Good ending.

A solid enjoyable listen

Out of the books I’ve listen to by Thea Harrison I’d probably put this closer to 4 stars because the action wasn’t quite as enthralling, but the overall balance of great narration, good characters and an engaging premise made me rate it a bit higher. Wish there were more full length novels by Thea Harrison available on Audible. At present it seems like loads of novellas apart from this series (..which has sadly concluded with this book).

nice book, finishes trilogy well.

Battle scenes good but quickly done. For somebody as strong as the antagonist is throughout the series was hoping for more payback. I guess I am just as bloodthirsty as Oberon.

Beautiful

Well written, wonderful story. Excellent narration. All the hilarity and difficulty you could imagine from a cat and a bird having to rely upon each other. And Robin. I think Robin stole a bit of the show. Beautiful.

Beautiful end to the Moonshadow Saga

Dr. Kathryn Shaw and Oberon were a surprise and perfect. Two individuals that are stubborn and allows no one to push them around found each other. Dr. Kathryn Shaw had always been a favorite of mine because she never allowed Dragos to dictate to her and she's no different in Lionheart. Dragos is briefly present at the beginning of Lionheart and Dr. Shaw immediately puts him in his place when he tries to order her to come to him. LOL!

One decision to help others and take on an adventure changes Dr. Shaw's life forever. Breaking a little doctor-patient protocol also allowed her life to take a detour that became her saving "Grace" in more ways than one.

King Oberon fell by Morgan LaFae's poison dart, is in permanent slumber until Dr. Shaw arouses his senses and awakens to a kingdom that has spent the last 15 years in frigid Alaskan-like winter. The ice in his heart, due to the poison that is slowly trying to make its way to his heart, and his lack of emotions are bound to kill him unless Dr. Shaw can save him. In the quest to save him they find their way together and once and for all deal with enemy Isabeau and the Light Court.

It was a wonderful, thrilling and beautiful ending to this saga. I loved having Dragos and the Sentinels around if only for a brief appearance. I hope Thea will bring us back to the world of the elder races again because I believe there are still more stories to tell and explore.

Sophie Eastlake is an amazing narrator and manages to nail every character with the correct tone and characteristics of the story.

Loved it! AND the narration was perfect..

It’s probably a good thing that King Oberon wasn’t an unfeeling jerk for too long or I wouldn’t have never liked him at all. But, after 15+ years in stasis Kathryn did wake him up. And it was a battle from the get-go between him and Kathryn, he as a huge white lion and her as a falcon but together they got things together.

This was my favorite of the Moonshadow series, and I knew it would be.

I liked Oberon and Kathryn a lot. I liked that she didn’t put up with his crap and gave as good as she got.

And, I love, love, loved all the magic. What Oberon could do with the weather was just incredible. The battle between Oberon and Isabeau along with the Russian Fae was awesome. The wind and rain and lightening then the hurricane Oberon caused. He was one powerful Wyr. And I adored the puck Robin. He could be a horse one minute, then a snake, then a monkey, you never knew what he was going to shift into.

And even though the time she spent operating on him might have been far fetched I didn’t have a problem with it, like others did. I mean, the entire book was about a place that doesn’t exist, creatures that don’t exist, so why do I have to question anything that has to do with a shape-shifting falcon/doctor operating ALONE on a shape-shifting King/lion?

There was explicit sex, multiple times, in this book and the F-bomb was used 35 times.

As to the narration: I always love Sophie Eastlake, both male and female voices but this time her emotions when she read were just phenomenal. Every time the book called for a whisper or an angry yell, she did it to perfection.

Hope for more of the same

I have finished the latest book in Thea Harrison's Moonshadow series. As with all things 'Elder Races' related this is more of the same FANTASTIC, WONDERFUL, AWESOME listen.

I am hoping for more of the same in the future. Harrison and Eastlake are a one, two, knock-out punch.

I ENJOYED THIS SERIES!

I liked this series, and this story closes the trilogy nicely. Loved the way the main characters clash, and bicker. There was nothing cute and soft about them, and that made the story better for me.

Sophie Eastlake did a great job narrating this story.

Recommended book/series! :)
