Three stars. I have read all of the full sized novels in this series up to this point, but admitedly I skipped the short novella from Elemental Magic because I was having trouble getting my hands on it. I have a feeling that was part of my problem with this book. Now, York's books are never ground breakingly brilliant. But they are, normally, crisp and quick stories with likeable characters. The Moon books surround the men of the Marshall family, so they tie in together and we get to see many of the same characters throughout--I know for me that's a big plus.

The plot of this book is a bit complex to explain. You have a ghost werewolf (Caleb Marshall) haunting these woods in what is basically the universe as we know it. He was killed by his family in the 1930s and has remained in ghostly limbo in the vague hope of seeking revenge. Then you have Quinn, who is from an ulternate dimension. She's working with the Marshall's (Rinna and Logan, who's story is in New Moon) to bring a pregnant woman over to our universe in order to save her from violence and political termoil taking place in the other universe. Quinn encounters Caleb and is the only human in a long time able to see and feel him--a romance developes and Caleb begins to believe that she is his mate. But Quinn's friends and Caleb's ghostly nature threaten the fragile connection between them.

Now the good things about this book are plenty. I like the plot quite a bit, especially at first. And York maintains an ability to create intense and dynamic meetings and interactions between her couple. The first time that Caleb and Quinn meet is remarably erotic. I liked Quinn a lot--she demonstrates intelligence, will, and strength.

Caleb on the other hand ended up being quite unlikeable. For some reason, rather then the strong steadfast Marshall man usually presented in these books, we are left with the emotionally challenged near comatose reck that is Caleb. I understand that what happens to him is tramatic and madness inducing, but in my oppinion he spends far to much time in the crazed, self hating, not really wanting to live stage. That or he's angry at everyone but those who really deserve it. He's frustrating and he brings the book down. The other negative for me, as I touched on briefly above, was that I wasn't able to read the story in Elemental Magic, so I missed out on the story of Quinn's best friend and how she fell in love. As such I wasn't emotionally attached to her and other than Quinn's concern for her, no real care what happened to her. So I would advise reading that one first if possible.

I still like this series a lot, though I wish it would get back to the basics as far as the Marshalls and their struggle. I would recommend starting with Killer Moon if you have not already. ( )
