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.

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.

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.

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.

Shifter tale with real depth

I like shifter romance-thrillers, and this one did not disappoint. The characters and situation had real depth to it. I won't give any spoilers here, but they went into areas of a shifter society I hadn't thought about. This sure did make it interesting. It was also very unique because I hadn't seen a lot of the things done in this book in other books. The writer did a great job

The narrator also rocked. Each character sounded distinct, like a real individual. His work definitely jacked up the emotional level.

Interesting twist on werewolves

Interesting twist on werewolves
the overall experience I'm giving five stars because it was well written and the characters were well developed. it did start off kind of slow and I didn't totally get into the story until Andee met with Alwin but I am normally a romance reader so it's natural that only the love story of the book peaked my interest the most. I went through a bunch of different emotions from amusement to sadness, I laughed I cried I was angry I was proud. All of which are a sign of a good book.


Personally I would have loved to seen the couple get it on. the my only negative and it's not a huge negative is not having the satisfaction of the two ripping each others clothes off. it was so much tension and so much building to the couple getting together but when they had permission or free will to be together I didn't feel the sizzle the love the desire it felt more like two people finding friendship not really finding love. when they finally had the chance to be together is when they should have threw caution to the wind and finally satisfy the urges that they have been fighting against the whole book. I would have really liked to see that explosive and primal release between them. t
This is why I am giving the story 4 stars instead of 5 stars. I also have unanswered questions like who and what was after Alwin and why? it doesn't make make sense for somebody to be targeting him and what's the connection to the first murder.



my critique on the voice actor is he did a great job bringing the story to life and giving each character their own voice. my only negative is only one character was from the south and the rest of the characters were from New York City or upstate New York but they did not carry the accents that are associated with that part of the country. with the exception of the Latino characters everyone else all sound like they had a twang in their speech. for this reason I'm giving it a 4 out of 5 stars. it wasn't really a bad thing because it didn't take away from the story itself but it did make it hard to picture this taking place in or around New York.

Overall it was a really good book and I recommend it to my friends and family and any readers interested in buying this book.

Over the moon exciting

This book was awesome, mysterious and inevitable love waiting to happen. I don’t like the way it ended I want more... there has to be another book to this. The flow of the story was smooth and the performance of the narrator was on point all the way through. I have found a new author and narrator to start looking out for.

Loved It

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This is a story that I will listen to again and I don't say that often. The narrator made me feel the emotions, suspense, and character of each individual. The story was well written and the plot twists made the story more complex and enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal. It is not Christine Feehan good but it does hit a nice spot.

Love Murder Werewolves!

Multi-genre bending book that had nonstop action. I also enjoyed the history lesson on werewolves.

Fantasy and Crime, oh my!

A gruesome murder happens in NY's Central Park, an FBI agent Andee and an NYC detective Gerald Meeker are on the case to solve this murder. Many twist and turns in the investigation lead them to seek help from Professor Alwyn Lloyd, an expert in werewolves.
Andee and Gerald believe werewolves are make-believe, mystical creatures someone made up but they soon find out that is not true and Andee soon finds herself personally involved with a pack of werewolves!

This is a wonderful novel, full of twist and turns, a love interest and a couple of chuckles here and there (which I love). Kwen Griffeth did a wonderful job writing this and I hope he does another book with these characters, it begs to be written in my opinion! And narrator Paul J. McSorley does a wonderful job bringing each of the characters to life! Bravo to you both!
