As a huge fan of Victoria Danann's work, I was so excited to read Moonlight and review it for release day. I've come to expect perfectly intricate stories woven for the reader to seamlessly dive into while being carried away into hot romance, unique paranormal moments, high-impact action, great characterization, and more. Moonlight epitomizes what I love about Victoria Danann's work and is an AMAZING FANTASTIC INCREDIBLE addition to a series that is one of my all-time favorites. :)

There isn't much that I can't say without spoiling this incredible series for you, but I will do my best to only reveal what I must. All of our most favorite characters are back for another meet up of B-Team crazyness, but this time, there are pregnancies, retirees, and some big changes on the horizon.

Glendennon Catch makes a larger appearance in this novel as well as our favorite Fae/Elf couple (whom I was SO excited to catch up with!), and there is a litter of puppies to boot! Also, seeing another facet to Stalkson Grey's winning alpha personality kept me on my toes page after page.

Victoria writes a novel filled with dynamic relationships, each full of love and romance, but she doesn't skimp on the hilariously awkward moments that make each seem honest and real. Demon-dads and romps with wolves, drunk vampires and star-crossed lovers collide in this fourth addition to The Order Of The Black Swan series. I cannot WAIT to sink my teeth into book number five and savor the next creation from Ms. Danann. This is one of those put-it-to-the-top-of-your-to-read-list books and a must buy for every paranormal fan. 

From this book forth, I am *officially* a Victoria Danann fan-girl... squeals and all! Join me, won't you?!

Interview with Glendennon Catch
by Victoria Danann
Victoria: Hey, Glen
Glen: Ms. Danann.
Victoria: Don't look so uncomfortable. We're just going to talk. Nothing to worry about.
Glen: Okay.
Victoria: I can see that didn't relax you in the least. Have you, by any chance, been talking to Sir Hawking about this interview?
Glen: (glances away) Maybe.
Victoria: What did he tell you?
Glen: He told me to watch myself, that you're tricky.
Victoria: (I smile.) I'm not here to trick you, Glen. I'm here because you have new fans who are interested in you personally. They probably want to know such things as boxers or briefs?
Glen: (blushes) You're not asking that are you?     
Victoria: No. I'm not asking that. What I'd really like to find out is how you feel about some of the things that happen to you in Moonlight, but I can't think of a way to do that without spoilers.
Glen : (shrugs)
Victoria:  Well, maybe we can give a couple of things away. How do you feel about leaving Edinburgh?
Glen: Well, I haven't been there that long. I'd say it was a good experience all in all. I got to know a lot of people and I know my way around the different departments at Headquarters.
Victoria: No particular girl you'll be sorry to leave?
Glen: (Smiles.) Fae girls are wonderful. I'll be sorry to leave all of them.
Victoria: Hmmm.
Glen: (His smile vanished.) What does that mean?
Victoria:  What do you mean?
Glen: You said, "Hmmm." What does, "Hmmm," mean?
Victoria: (I turn my recorder off and sit back.) Glen, it seems that Rammel has made you paranoid about this interview. I'm not out to get you. If anything, I'm the angel that sits on your shoulder.
Glen: (Looks unconvinced.)
Victoria: What do I need to do to prove it?
Glen: (Stares.) You could promise that those people who came after Lady Laiken and her baby don't come back again.
Victoria: I can't make that promise, Glen. Wheels are in motion.
Glen: Who's in charge of the wheels?
Victoria: I don't know.
Glen: Sir Hawking said it was you.
Victoria: Well, that would be a very simplistic way of looking at things.
Glen: You think I'm a kid, but I know a dodge when I see one.
Victoria: You're right. I do think you're a kid, but I also know you're a kid who's exceptional, even brilliant.
Glen: But you still think I'm dumb enough or vain enough to be distracted with compliments.
Victoria: Works with Ram.
Glen: (Narrows his eyes.)  
Victoria:  Okay. Look. We've obviously gotten off on the wrong foot and I'm tired of limping along here. You're clearly very protective of Sir Hawking and Lady Laiken, so we'll avoid further references to either of them. 
Let's try another question. You're going to be expected to make a declaration of career intent in about three weeks when you turn twenty. Right? 
Glen: Yes.
Victoria: Have you decided what you want to do?
Glen: Yes.
Victoria: Excellent! Please share.
Glen: No.
Victoria: No?
Glen: No. If you want to know more, read the book like everybody else.
Victoria:  Great Paddy.
