King Oberon reigned over his Dark Court in Lyonesse for centuries, until an assassination attempt laid him low. Now he lies unconscious in his snow-bound palace, while his Power battles the enchantment that threatens to end his life.

A skilled trauma surgeon and magic-user, Dr. Kathryn Shaw reigns at the top of her profession in New York. Then comes a challenge she can’t resist—she is asked to cure the uncureable. Just getting close enough to try healing Oberon is a dangerous proposition. When she does reach him, he awakens too soon.

Roused from darkness by Kathryn’s presence, Oberon confronts the beautiful stranger who claims she wants to save his life. But the enchantment has frozen his emotions. How can he learn to trust her when he can’t feel anything?

Oberon’s desire is icy, devoid of all tenderness. Not only must Kathryn match wits with him, she must also fight her reaction to his touch, because there is so much more at stake than her own endangered heart.

For the Dark Court faces its most deadly peril yet. Its ancient enemy Isabeau, Queen of the Light Court, is obsessed with its annihilation, and Oberon must be brought to remember his loyalty and affection for his people.

Because if he won’t fight for them, Lyonesse itself may very well be destroyed…

I’m a big fan of the Elder Races series. It has many 5 star reads. This new Moonshadow trilogy is a bit of a spin-off utilizing the same world. Moonshadow is set in the UK, while the Elder Races are in the US.  This trilogy can easily be read without reading the Elder Races but why would anyone want to miss out on that fantastic series?!?!?!

Dr Kathryn Shaw is amazing. She is so smart and strong and compassionate. She controls herself very well as a professional in a situation where others would take the easy way out or be too frightened to handle it. She ends up in a survival type situation to treat an important patient and she manages it with a real McGayver spirit. She is a doctor from the Elder Races world, as a physician to Dragos.

Her patient, the King Oberon, is not my favorite guy. He starts out with some serious poisoning which has changed his personality as well as his physical health. Alpha dude is way too used to having his own way. As Kathryn treats him and he sees how awesome she is, he becomes more bearable.

I really enjoyed this great story with magic, Fae battles, medical treating of magical ailments, a few characters from earlier in the trilogy, as well as brief glimpses of a few from the Elder Races. I can’t wait to see what other stories  might be in this overall world.

  1. Sometimes I will do already with the crabby overbearing types if they get a clue and change. Sounds like Kathryn was pretty amazing to go into the lion’s den so to speak.
    I still need to read the Elder Races.
