Phoenix, Arizona. December 19, 2011 — The hit series True Blood may be on hiatus, but fans can take solace in the fact that Shepherd’s Moon is just ramping up – and that is making a lot of urban fantasy readers very happy.
“I wanted to combine my experience with animals into a genre that’s interesting and different,” said Stacy Mantle, award-winning author of the new Shepherds series. “What’s more fun than Were-animals running around under the protection of an untested Shepherd?”
A lot of fun, as it turns out. Shepherd’s Moon is an entertaining look at the world of animal rescue, if the animals could become humans at will. Enter Alexandra Wilde, official “were-whisperer” of the preternatural.
As the first female Shepherd in over 2,000 years, Alexandra enters a male-dominated world when she inherits reign over the Southwest Territory. With high-stakes council meetings, ego-driven packs, and a corrupt corporation participating in some less than honorable business practices, it’s up to Alex and her pack to level the playing field.
From a shape-shifting, rebel rousing coyote to a troubled werejaguar and her cubs, the characters and family dynamics are what make this book relatable and enjoyable for all ages – guaranteeing a long series life.
Shepherd’s Moon is set in the author’s hometown of Phoenix, Arizona offering a scenic backdrop guaranteed to impress the reader.
According to readers as well as critics, Shepherd’s Moon lures the reader in and demands your attention. The book provides a CRAZY twist at the end that I really never saw coming, said Brina Courtney from ThatsWhatSheSaidBooks . Fast-paced and enthralling, this book sucked me in, chewed me up and spit me out of its world all too quickly, reports Jaena Moynihan. Read Shepherd's Moon - you won't be disappointed...”
Shepherd’s Moon is available internationally at Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and select retailers.
