Kurzbeschreibung

Like father, like son…
 
Sophie Thibodeau has been on the run from the father of her son for more than fifteen years. Now her son, Joshua, is changing, and her greatest fears are about to be realized. He’s going to end up being just like his father—a man who can change into a wolf.
 
Dylan Black has been hunting for Sophie since the night she ran from him—an obsession he cannot afford in the midst of an impending war. Dylan controls Rhuddin Village, an isolated town in Maine where he lives with an ancient Celtic tribe. One of the few of his clan who can still shift into a wolf, he must protect his people from the Guardians, vicious warriors who seek to destroy them.
 
When Sophie and Dylan come together for the sake of their son, their reunion reignites the fierce passion they once shared. For the first time in years, Dylan’s lost family is within his grasp. But will he lose them all over again? Are Joshua and Sophie strong enough to fight alongside Dylan in battle? Nothing less than the fate of his tribe depends on it…

4.0 von 5 Sternen A brilliant effort by this debut author! 24. September 2013
Von RabidReads - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm not sure if this is a new trend in Paranormal Romance but more and more titles have been featuring "older" heroines and Celtic Moon falls into that category with Sophie, a 36 year old protagonist. Thibodeau doesn't just stand out because of her age, she also brings to the table something that a lot of female characters lack: experience. You can't help but admire a woman that's willing to put her fears aside in order to do right by her child; even if it means confronting the man that she's been running from for over fifteen years. My respect for her continued to increase with every new page I read because Sophie not only learned from her previous mistakes but actually took steps to ensure that she'd never be a victim again.

Two of my favourite things come together in this book: werewolves and Celtic mythology. Both elements are closely intertwined in this story and I loved how rich the lore was as a result. The author incorporates a few very unique components which helped it stand-out from other comparable titles in this genre. It's been weeks since I finished reading Celtic Moon and yet, I'm still thinking about the extremely memorable "serpent" weapon. I'd be curious to find out whether its origins stem from historical facts or are the imaginings of a very talented author. Either way, I approve! In my opinion, this first installment is only the tip of the iceberg where the Celtic Wolves are concerned!

DeLima allows readers to make up their own minds about what actually happened fifteen years ago by presenting the facts from three very different perspectives. I really enjoyed weighing each character's viewpoint and drawing my own conclusions; even though I knew what the end result was going to be, I still appreciated the process. This book has a real story within a story feel to it which makes it as fulfilling as it is entertaining. I also liked that the author didn't rush the romance and gave the characters time to adjust. There may be danger on the horizon but that's still no excuse for jumping in bed with your ex!

Celtic Moon is not your average werewolf book thanks the Jan Delima's distinctive layered writing style, original mythology and unlikely heroine. A brilliant effort by this debut author!

4.0 von 5 Sternen I loved her "Don't f*** with me or my family attitude" 27. September 2013
Von Urban Fantasy Investigations - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Pregnant and feeling like a prisoner Sophie took the chance and ran from her husband and his pack to protect herself and her son. 15 years later she finds herself running back into her husbands grasp. Dylan has been looking for Sophie since she left. He thinks about her and his child constantly. When she calls him for help he says anything to get her back where she belongs.

Sophie does not return the same person she was when she left. I loved her "Don't f*** with me or my family attitude". She had NO issues sticking up for herself, her mom or Joshua and I loved every second of it. I also loved that she put her child before her own fears. She did not hesitate to rush back into a pack that did anything to make her feel unwelcome and pushed around. As for Dylan he is the definition of alpha male. He is stubborn, bossy, protective and beyond sexy. He did not handle things well in the past and he finds himself making the same mistakes now. He is manipulative and jerky when he could be open and loving and get a better outcome. There is a lot of trial and error on his part and he eventually discovers where his mistakes are when dealing with his wife. Sophie and Dylan have tons of chemistry and I liked how everything revealed itself and played out.

CELTIC MOON was a great start to a promising series. I enjoyed the character development and the rise of conflict that will span the series. DeLima did a great job introducing her characters while also growing them and introducing the storyline and their past. The blending of Celtic mythology and the wolves history blended well and kept me reading. I'm excited to learn more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I refreshingly different heroine with a realistic feel 25. September 2013
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
BTW This is Mrs Ian writing the review! :D

The first thing that struck me about Celtic Moon was the choice of protagonist. Sophie is rather unusual for the Urban Fantasy / Paranormal Romance that I have read because she is already a relatively mature woman. I say `relatively' because she is quite a bit younger than me and I do not like thinking of myself as `older' or `mature'! Not only is she in her mid to late thirties, but also she has already found the love of her life and had his child. She is well beyond the Happy Ever After that comes at the end of traditional Romance novels and living a normal life with all the associated difficult bits. In fact, the only near perfect aspect of her life is that she has such great relationships with her son and mother.

I was both intrigued and delighted by Sophie and her dilemmas. I am not a great fan of chick lit or general Romance titles, so I enjoyed reading about a woman who has to deal with more than just romantic angst and whether or not her nail varnish matches her handbag. Sophie has big, real life issues to overcome and she does it with great grit and determination. This is where Ms DeLima really sold me her book: Sophie is a strong woman throughout the whole story. I have grown to really rather hate those `strong' female protagonists that are repeatedly described as such right up until the moment that the male hero turns up to save her from all the big, bad monsters and sweep her off her feet. If a woman is strong then she will remain so even if she has a man around to help out with fighting the coming apocalypse. Buffy the Vampire Slayer has male friends and helpers, but she is always as good as, if not better than, them in a straight fight against the Big Bad. She is the type of strong female that I can appreciate and empathize with and Sophie has a slight touch of Buffy about her.

One other aspect of Sophie that I really like is where she actually differs from Buffy: she is not special. She is not the Chosen One. She does not have special powers. She is not the unknowing last member of some super special tribe of uber-powerful warrior women with the ability to fire laser beams from her eyes. In short, she is not a Special Snowflake and I love her for it. She could be me or you or any of our friends: the only unusual thing about her is that she meets a man who happens to be able to shift into wolf. Again, this is against the usual trend in all manner of Fantasy fiction, but it helps to make this book stand out from the `pack' (sorry, but I had to!).

Speaking of our Alpha male: he is also a pleasant surprise. He displays many of the typical Alpha characteristics that we see in Romance novels, but I can forgive him for his overbearing arrogance because he has good reason to be that way. He is nearly two thousand years old and has stayed outside of human society for much of that time, so he can be forgiven for being a little unusual. He is heavily influenced by the traumas of his past and also by the Wolf inside him. As pack leader, he feels responsible for all his people and his desire to find Sophie has always had to take a back seat to his need to keep the pack safe. He is a man with great strength of character who can, and does, chose the pack's interest over his own. As Spock says "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one." and we see that Dylan can apply this logic even though his Wolf is calling out for its chosen Mate, Sophie.

This adds an unusually cool dynamic to the rekindled romance between our two lead characters. There is little doubt that they will eventually succumb to the powerful attraction between them, but they are not so weak-willed and self-centered as to allow their feelings endanger the people around them. When they do finally reunite, all the longing and self-denial adds to the emotional impact of the event and yet it has a truthful feel to it. This is not a fantastical encounter of spectacular gymnastics, improbable outcomes or impossible endurance. It is tender and honest, with a dash of desperate urgency thrown in for good measure.

Along with the unusual dynamic between our two lovers, we have strong family relationships on both sides of the aisle. Sophie's family is small but very tightly knit. Her mother, Francine, is hilarious and has some really great moments, and yet she is as strong as her daughter: when things get difficult she simply rolls up her sleeves and does what is needed. She might have a bit of a grumble, but she will always support and protect her family. Dylan's family is a little more difficult to read because we spend less time in their company, but there is a similarly strong bond between the three siblings. The extended family of the Pack also includes some strong personalities and interesting characters to keep Dylan on his toes and to make sure that he never takes his authority for granted. We will learn much more about Dylan's brother and sister, Luc and Elen, in the second and third volumes of the Celtic Wolves Series because each title concentrates on one of the siblings. I look forward to getting a greater insight into their family dynamic.

The story itself follows a logical course as it carries our characters into great danger, building a feeling of threat that is very real. As you can tell, I felt deeply invested in these characters and so I really cared about their safety and well-being. I was impressed by the fearless way in which the author did not provide a soft and safe ending for everyone: the Guardians are vicious in their attempts to `persuade' the Pack to return to the old ways and they use any means necessary to get their message across. This leads to violent conflict and death, but not in a gratuitous and casual way. All the pain and suffering flows directly from the personalities and political ideals of the Guardians, but Ms DeLima does not pull her punches so be prepared for some shocking outcomes.

It seems that this review is in danger of becoming rather too massive, so I will draw to a close. I recommend Celtic Moon to anyone who enjoys Urban Fantasy with a little Romance thrown in. However, that romance does not follow the traditional path and our lovers are not only driven by their love for each other: they have more important things to worry about! Most importantly, I would praise Sophie as a real heroine, with inner strength and great courage, who is just an ordinary woman dealing with extraordinary problems.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Romantic Urban Fantasy with a Bite 20. November 2013
Von Mike Briggs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a terrific debut. Ms DeLima has a wonderful voice and the plot didn't depend upon people being stupid. Her ancient characters didn't feel like eighteen year olds and her eighteen year olds did. Interesting world building and wonderful sexy characters This did not feel generic in any fashion. I can't wait to see where she takes this.
