I’ve loved him forever, but he can never be mine.

Brittany is determined to prove herself to the Dark Guardians. And yet she’s been keeping a devastating secret: She hasn’t experienced any of the intense, early signs of change that mark a Dark Guardian’s transformation. The only intense feelings she has are for Connor—and she’s kept that a secret, too. But she knows she’ll never truly have Connor’s love if she’s not a Shifter like him.

At the first full moon after her birthday, her greatest fear is realized: She doesn’t transform. Brittany is so desperate to become a wolf that she’ll go to extremes she never thought possible . . . and put all the Dark Guardians in incredible danger.


After reading the last book in this series, I was hoping this series would make a comeback with Dark of the Moon. Boy, did it! I loved this book! Brittany is the tough girl of the group. The smart ass, tough as nails, hates pink kind of girl. She has been in love with Connor for a long time. When it comes time for her full moon for shifting, Brittany doesn’t change. She doesn’t know why, but is devastated since she has been waiting for this forever. She doesn’t know how to tell anyone as well, since she has never really had a close bond with any of the other girls. I found the slow romance between Connor and Brittany wonderful and the writing flowed smoothly. I am so glad the author came back from the last book with lots of juicy writing. There were suppose to only be three in this series, but her site now states that there will be another one. I cannot wait to see what more she has in store for her readers!


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
