Moonsong : The Wolves of Cutter's Folly

From Bestselling Paranormal Romance Author Lisa Olsen
After werewolves attack her family, Amelia Singer escapes to Cutter's Folly in search of her long lost grandmother. There she finds the strangest revelation yet - not only is she descended from a long line of shapeshifters, Amelia's firstborn is destined to lead the pack to dominion over all others. Now power hungry shifters everywhere will stop at nothing to share in that prophecy. Choosing a mate is the only way to end the violence, but how can she be expected to choose a man she's known for less than a week? At the heart of this struggle, Amelia is torn between Chase, who makes her pulse race with a single sultry glance, and Cutter, a reclusive but tempting loner with secrets of his own. Can fiercely independent Amelia find happiness with the pack, or will she rebel under the pressure and take her chances on her own?

Editorial Review

Author Lisa Olsen explores the world of shapeshifters with this solid Paranormal Romance. Still reeling from the news that she's from a family of shapeshifters, Amelia learns she's the focus of an ancient prophecy and everybody wants a piece of her. Against that backdrop, we have a classic love triangle. On one side we have Chase, a young, brash werewolf (excuse me, shifter), who's chomping at the bit to become the pack's next Alpha. Does he have actual feelings for Amelia, or is he more interested in the prophecy? On the other side we have Cutter, a gruff but appealing outsider who spends as much time infuriating Amelia as he intrigues her. Caught in the middle is feisty Millie, who refuses to cave in to the pressure from all sides to choose a mate for the stupid prophecy.

The author gives us the best parts of a werewolf saga (dominant males posturing for power), tempering it with a strong female cast, especially Millie herself who doesn't put up with anyone else telling her what to do.


*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review *

Simply said, I need more. I feel devastated having to wait for the next release. I was entranced from start to finish. Moonsong has one of the best, well- executed prose I've read in a while. The characters are well-written and I've fallen in love with each of them. The plot twists are so well-structured that one second I was seething with hatred for a particular character, only to experience whiplash from the amount of respect owed to him within only a few short chapters. I was skeptical of another the entire time only to be shocked by her unswaying, innocent essence. The protagonist's are loveable, snarky, and with the just right amount of obstinacy added to their traits. The atmosphere evenly transitions from blissful swooning to raw intensity and anticipation, creating a whirlwind of addicting emotions.  Both the dialogue of the story and the structure are well rounded without an onslaught of typical and overused adjectives or references. I am just now discovering this author and after reading this story all of her books are going on my to - read list. Moonsong will easily be one of the most sought after novels of the year.
