Amazing introduction for new author Nulli Para Ora. Dragon Moon is everything a lover of romance could want in a unique PNR novel! A MUST read.

Hearts unite and break as trusted friends become enemies behind the scenes. Love longed for is lost to be replaced by a bond deeper than words. Loyalties are tested as ghosts of the past step into the present.
Can true love survive when forbidden hearts are reconnected?
Wow, talk about something different in PNR, I absolutely loved this novel. Nulli Para Ora breathes a breath of fresh air into romantic paranormal suspense. Although interracial couple are not unheard of in PNR it is highly unusual to have Asian/Black/White all in the same book as a love triangle. For me this was my first experience with a Chinese male protagonist and I hope that it is not my last Gao was unbelievably romantic, sensitive and all alpha. David was more aggressive even before the change and still a wonderful alpha. Angelique was everything you could want in a heroine, smart, focused, sensitive and kick-ass. The story NPO weaves was exciting enough to keep me up until 5:30 am this morning reading. I had to find out what happened. The book kept me on the edge of my seat..er.. bed, it was fast paced, and the plot deftly wound around the supporting characters to make them as integral to the story as the main characters. The fact that these characters are fully dimensional makes them easy for the reader to identify with and empathize. This complex story introduced a plot twist right at the end, not a cliff hanger but an "uh oh now what" moment. Overall this is an exciting start to a new series and I for one can't wait for book 2. Ora is a new name in romantic paranormal and I know this novel will springboard her onto everyone's favorite shelf. She is definitely on mine!
4.5 solid gold stars for Dragon Moon and a new fangirl in me. Do yourself a favor read this book now and treat yourself to a taste of Gao/David and Angelique.
