“Shadow of the Moon”

Angelia has fought her entire life to make herself strong. Now, with her patria under fire, she has to protect her people from Fury and his werewolf clan.

1.0 von 5 Sternen 4 Kurzgeschichten, aber eine davon nur lesenswert 7. Dezember 2008
Format:Taschenbuch
Including Spoiler

Die erste Geschichte ist von Sherrilyn Kenyon: Shadow oft he Moon
Es ist Fury's Kurzgeschichte über 90 Seiten. Er trifft seine Jugendfreundin wieder, die ihn damals schmählich in Stich gelassen hat, als er sie am meisten brauchte. Sie versuchte ihn sogar zu töten, sah zu wie er gefoltert wurde...
Jahrhunderte später...
Wir finden einen ganz anderen Fury wieder, als wir ihn in Vane`s Buch kennengelernt haben. Ich hatte mir immer ein ganzes Buch für Fury gewünscht, bin aber im nachhinein froh, dass es nur eine Kurzgeschichte wurde.
Was ist mit SK los? Wieso erfindet sie nur noch Heldinnen, die unsympathisch sind? Angelia ist keine Heroine, wie man sie gerne an Fury`s Seite gesehen hätte. Sie hat einmal versucht ihn umzubringen, usw. jetzt tut sie es wieder, guckt zu, wie er gefoltert wird. Ihre schnelle Wandlung, in der sie doch noch ihre alte Liebe zu Fury entdeckt, passiert innerhalb 1 Seite. Aber das macht sie auch nicht sympathischer.
Kurz gesagt, es ist halt nur eine Kurzgeschichte, dazu noch eine schlechte. Wir sahen kurz Savitar und Z., aber die brachten die Geschichte auch nicht so wirklich in Schwung, denn SK verschwendete mehr Worte dafür, die uns bekannten Charaktere in aller Ausführlichkeit zu beschreiben. (hey, wir wissen inzwischen wie die beiden aussehen). Man kann die Geschichte als Prolog für Fang & Aimee`s Geschichte sehen. Denn das Ende lässt darauf schließen, dass dieser Mini-Kampf noch nicht abgeschlossen ist und noch weitreichende Folgen haben wird.

Die zweite Geschichte ist von J.R. Ward: The Story of Son
Es ist in der Welt der Vampire angesiedelt, hat aber mit der BDB Black Dagger Brotherhood nichts zu tun.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not so Dead as I expected... 19. April 2009
Von Helene
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this book for 2 reasons - J.R.Ward and Sherrilyn Kenyon. The short story by Ms. Ward (Shadow of the Moon) was quite good, and the one by Ms. Kenyon (the Story of Son) was kind of weird but OK. However, the rest of the book was not worth the read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dead after dark falls 'short' - These Enjoyable Shorts Would Have Made Great Novels 10. Dezember 2008
Von melindeeloo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Dead After Dark is sure to attract a lot of fans with its inclusion of stories by paranomal romance heavyweights J. R. Ward and Sherrilyn Kenyon. Rounding out the author quartet is Dianna Love, Kenyon's writing partner for her B.A.D. series, and Susan Squires who authors a long running vampire series.

My favorite story out of the four stories was "Story of Son" by J. R. Ward, though I have enjoyed her Black Dagger Brotherhood I am not a fangirl (well, not an extreme fangirl), so it wasn't a problem that the story was not connected to that series. Here Ward tells the story of a workaholic lawyer Claire who finds herself kidnapped and trapped with the inhumanly beautiful vampire son of a client. The son has been imprisoned alone in the basement for decades except for three days a year when mom provides a woman to feed upon, this time Claire's dinner. --- I loved Ward's hero, whom Claire names Michael. Michael is beautiful, tragic, shy and vulnerable, and alternately, powerful and dominating as Claire's acceptance stirs his passion in addition to his hunger. The story was both sweet and steamy, and I liked it so well that I went back for a second read. (5 stars)

Also enjoyable was Dianna Love's "Midnight Kiss Goodbye". Trey returns home to find Sasha, the woman he spurned but still loves, in danger from one of his magical enemies. Drew made the difficult decision to leave in order to spare Sasha the burden of his secret magical heritage, but Sasha has her own magical secrets and the attraction between them still burns bright. Now Drew must again choose and this time the fate of the world hangs in the balance, but how can he possibly give Sasha up again? --- Though I do admit that this story was stuffed to the gills with world building, but (mixing my metaphors I know) author Love sows the promising seeds for what I hope is the start of a new series with magical warriors, gods/goddesses and witches. I liked Trey a lot but I definitely want more of Lucien. -- (4 stars)

Susan Squires' "Beyond the Night" - Andrew was framed for a crime as punishment for loving a women above his station, and left to rot on a prison ship, but fate stepped in and Andrew made his fortune as a pirate. Now as the gentleman `Drew' he returns to pursue vengeance. Acquiring a manor for his base of operations, Drew finds his new home haunted, but he is overcome not by fear, but by lust for the bloodsucking ghostly beauty who hides from her past. --- I am not a fan of Squires' `Companion' vampire romances in general, but this one was pretty good, even though the Drew's transition from his lifelong purpose of vengeance to acceptance of eternal love was a bit rushed. (3.5 stars)

"Shadow of the Moon" is Kenyon's story of were hunter wolf Fury - one of Vane's long suffering brothers - who had a significant supporting role in Night Play. When an attack leaves a lion shifter mysteriously trapped in his animal form, Fury sniffs out that the attackers were members of his old clan - including the best friend, Angelia, whose betrayal nearly cost him his life. Having learned his lesson the hard way , Fury has used his sarcastic attitude as protection to keep everyone at a distance, but now the acceptance by his brothers has put a chink in his armor, and memories of the woman he once trusted and loved again put his heart and life in danger. --- I have loved Fury since Night Play - poor Fury, fate really played a cruel joke on him - and it was fun to see old favorites Fang, Bride and Vane,( and Zarek) one more time. Fury himself held up his end of the story here just fine. In fact, the parts with Fury and his sniping verbal games with the Bears at Sanctuary and the bits with Bride and Fury's pack at dinner made the story worth reading for Fury fans. But as far as the story in general and the romance between Fury and Angelia in specific, "Shadow of the Moon" was screaming to be a full length novel. There is a great deal of back-story - for Katagaria (animals that shift to human) and Acadians (humans that shift to animal) and for Fury's family in particular - that even fans may have forgotten. And while Kenyon did do a great job of working Fury up to the peak of disgust for Angelia's ignorance and cruelty, the middle was missing from Fury's reconcilement with Angelia. I never got to the point where I liked Angelia and felt she was worthy of a second chance with Fury and that, along with her abrupt change in attitude and Fury's too easy forgiveness, meant that the story wasn't really satisfying from a romance standpoint. -- For maximum enjoyment read/reread Night Play before reading this one - after reading this the first time I reread Night Play and I enjoyed the story so much more on the second read. (3.5 stars the 1st read, 4 stars the second)

Out of the four stories here, only Ward's was truly satisfying as a short story and romance, the rest of the three had very detailed build-ups but the resolutions felt rushed - Love's and Kenyon's had so much going on in the background that they really needed to be full length novels. Additionally, Squire's (along with Kenyon's) relied on the reader having knowledge of a long running series to understand all that was going on in the story. Overall I enjoyed Dead After Dark, but if you are not a fan of short stories, even if you are a Ward/Kenyon fan, this may not be the anthology to win you over.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great story by Ward, the rest are OK 6. Dezember 2008
Von Jackie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The stand-out in this anthology was J.R. Ward's contribution, "The Story of Son." That alone was worth the money to me. It's not part of the Black Dagger Brootherhood series, but fits into that world and is written more in the style of the first few books, before Ward started transitioning from romance to urban fantasy.
"The Story of Son" is about a workaholic lawyer, Claire, who pays a home visit to one of her wealthiest clients. The client mentions wanting Claire to meet her son and Claire thinks the old woman is matchmaking. As it turns out the client has something else in mind. Claire is drugged and wakes up in a windowless room with a strange man, who keeps hidden in the shadows. The next thing she knows, he's apologizing and making a meal of her neck. As Claire gets to know the stranger, she finds out he's the vampire son of her human client and has been kept a prisoner in the room for more than 50 years, since he was a young boy. It's almost all he knows. Michael turns out to be kind, smart and handsome, though terribly shy, and it doesn't take long for Claire to fall for him and start planning a way to get them both out of their prison.
Claire is a smart, resourceful heroine and Michael is an endearing, tortured hero.

Sherrilyn Kenyon's contribution is "Shadow of the Moon," Fury's story. Normally, I think Kenyon does short stories very well, but this one didn't live up to my expectations. First off, I really loved Fury in "Night Play," Vane's book, and I'd hoped he'd have a full length novel, so that might have colored my opinion, but he didn't seem to have quite the same prickly, awkward charm he had in other books. As for the heroine, Fury forgave her much more easily than I did. I think this was a story where a lot of character development was needed, but there just wasn't room for it in the space allotted in an anthology. The story has Fury investigating an attack on a pair of katagaria lions when he discovers a woman from his past is behind it. Angelia was his childhood friend, but betrayed him when he needed her most. When Fury takes her prisoner, she starts to question if she did the right thing.

Susan Squires' story, "Seize the Night," is a historical about a young man, Drew Carlowe, who has transformed himself from a groom to a gentleman. He returns home to win back the woman he loved and lost 15 years ago, only to find there may be some truth to rumors that his new estate is haunted by a stunning young ghost with a taste for blood. After a passionate encounter with the mysterious trespasser, he learns what real love is. I'd never read Squires before, but this was a good story and after reading it, I'm interested in reading some of her other works.

The last story, Diana Love's "Midnight Kiss Goodbye," is that of Trey McCree who has long loved Sasha Armand, but keeps his distance because of his dangerous (and supernatural) work. What he doesn't know is that Sasha has a secret of her own. I can't really name a reason why, but I just couldn't get into this story and wound up skimming most of it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not all good, but one was to die for 23. Januar 2010
Von Vixhen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed Sherrilyn Kenyon's story about Fury. Shadow of the Moon had the usual alpha male hero that I so enjoy. However, the Story of Son by J.R. Ward just captured my heart and never let it go! I wanted that story to go on forever. The tortured story of "Michael" was just FABULOUS. I felt the sadness running through him on every page. He wasn't the usual throw you down and ravage you type of man. He was shy, which is so not typical of a vampire, and at some points he was even afraid of Claire. And when he erased her memory to ease her pain of leaving him behind, OMG I was in love with this character. Please, Please, Please - if J.R. Ward could write an entire book just for him - I would be in heaven.

5.0 von 5 Sternen MICHAEL!! 25. März 2013
Von S. Thiot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wow. I love Michael! Wish "The Story of Son" could have been 700 pages long. Very touching and moving. Definite precursor to Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Would love to see a tie-in with the series in the future. Hopefully haven't heard the last of Michael and Clair.

shed felt like a man in a womans body. Her attitude, her drive, her edge, all those warrior components of her personality, had never really fit the body she was in, and her interests had never been of the female variety, even when she was young. &quote;
