A PhD thesis on the metaphysical change process of were-creatures, what could possibly go wrong with that? Ceridwyn Brent, thaumatologist and sorceress, figured it was just a matter of getting a few friends together, putting them in the middle of a scanning thaumometer rig, collating the results, and writing it all up. No muss, no fuss. She even has one of the rare South American were-creatures to work with, and exciting new insight into the process to write up. Her doctorate is a shoe-in and her personal life with Lily, her half-succubus “pet” has never been better.

But something is going on among the werewolves. Dane, leader of the North Hills pack, believes that an old menace is returning to Britain. Alexandra, the enigmatic Alpha of the Battersea pack believes that Ceri is the only person who can stop that menace from doing something which will threaten mankind as well as the wolf packs. When werewolves across the country suddenly go to war with each other, Ceri and Lily have to go to war themselves to save their new friends, and Ceri must find “The Fair One” before the Winter Solstice. For then, beneath the Demon’s Moon, the fate of all werewolves will be decided.

  1. There are two things that I like… One is curling up with a good book… The other is looking up from finishing it and realizing that I spent seven hours reading and didn’t stop once. This work gets both of those check marked off… Another engrossing story from the Ceri universe that is lovely in every way. The characters grow, the world is more and more detailed, and most of all, the underlying plot, which I will not spoil, made a lot of sense. I didn’t see the resolution of the plot at all, I had an idea, but it didn’t turn out the way I expected. But the climax was everything I could have asked for. You created a world within a world for the weres and what they have as their own society which was well explained and brought a lot of questions from the pervious story to their logical ends… bravo!

    I loved the way that Lily grew in this story and how her relationship with Ceri is progressing. I think that I like this smarter and more… passionate Lily as she comes to realize, and I hope, to help Ceri realize what she can do. Ceri I also think grew up a lot in the course of the story, though there were two moments, and I think you knew which I mean Tharcion, where I was a little squeamish at what happened to her. But she didn’t break and I think that in the end, you have to place your characters into jeopardy… and Ceri seems to be into a lot of that doesn’t she?

    Lots of questions left at the end, but that’s just fine as, of course, book three will be appearing soon… I saw a lot of foreshadowing of what the next book will be about, and if I am right, then Lily and Ceri are going to be in a lot more trouble personally next time…

    Another five out of five pitchforks…

    Read this book, read the series…

    There’s nothing like getting entwined in a world that an author cares about, and that you do as well…

    • Well, I could have had the bad guys kick puppies, but there weren’t any handy and Ceri was there… I know the scenes you were a little disturbed by and I thought long and hard before going there. The repercussions of that will be followed up in future books, Ceri’s not getting away with it so easily.

      I’m not exactly sure what your thoughts are on what Legacy will be about, but you’re right in that it will be less world-threatening and more about personal problems. It’s only in first draft though, so I think it’ll be Christmas at the earliest before it’ll be out. I hope you can stand the suspence. 😉

      As usual, it’s wonderful to hear your views on these stories, and especially wonderful to discover how much you enjoyed them. That’s the kind of thing an author likes to hear.
