It is a very short quick read It has a great world building with a good plot where Sabine gets forgotten by the people around her and Cier s struggle with the curse Even though it is short I enjoy reading it I just wish it was shown what happened to her mom and the witch because if it were me I would hate them very much when even my own parents don t remember me.
This novella is set in a wonderful fantasy world with all the things we usually love about Moira Rogers work sexy shifters g I myself have a very soft spot for those so I was thrilled to realize we would find those in this series too The setting itself is very dfifferent from what we re used to Moira Rogers wise We jump headfirst into a world where the 4 shifter nations are at war with each other or better said the war just ended.Our hero, Ciar just came back to his mansion like a castle actual [...]

This is a great book for Were lovers that like it hot and heavy and don t mind profanity which I DO NOT Moira is an excellent writer and very creative in all ways when putting it on the pages This is the 6th book I ve read of hers and have enjoyed each one of them I just wish she would give detailed endings All of her books are pretty fast reading because they are hard to put down and makes you want to get all of her books
Full review is at Book Chick City Guest Review Sabine by Moira Rogers Overall VerdictIt seems to be a book with lots of potential that was never fully realised If the book had been longer and the characters better developed I may have enjoyed it This book has not made me eager to read by this author, nor read the next in the series, which is a shame as the blurb promised much.
Just have to read a book with my own name on it.
Very quick read Not amazing but not horrible

I received this Arc copy from the author and was seriously happy to read and re read this quite a few times before I reviewed it My reasoning why, well I think the warning explains it.Warning This story contains cruel betrayal, destined love, vile curses, smoldering reunions, wicked deeds between wanton shapeshifters and a happily ever after worthy of any fairy tale.Sabine has to be hands down one of the best short stories I have ever read I am a huge paranormal romance fan I think I will always [...]

This review was posted at Under The CoversThis was my first exposure to Moira Rogers I ll confess the covers are what attracted me to get it I think they look so cool and sexy yes, even though it s only a girl So, in the good sense of judging a book by its cover, and even though this is EXTREMELY short, it delivered a pretty good story.Lets go back in time to kings, and courts, and wars Ciar was Prince, and he was madly in love with Sabine, but she wasn t of royal blood, and his mom didn t appro [...]
Team Moira Rogers has accomplished something that few authors have done before They made me cry.And that s a good thing A very good thing, in fact, because it shows just how engaged I was with these characters This is a quick read, but I was hooked from the moment I met Sabine She s got so much ANGST all caps serious, yo , and I love that My heart broke when hers did, and I rarely feel that strongly about a story That s one reason why this book gets 5 stars from me, because damn Well played, Tea [...]
This is how I like short stories A short prologue that gives me the details of the world and then immediately grabbing my attention with the first chapter With just a few paragraphs I was intrigued, curious, and wanting No one talked about the wild woman in the forest Mothers did not scare recalcitrant children into good behavior with stories of how the woman would snatch them from their beds as they slept Green recruits to the warlords armies did not boast of how they d fought her and bested h [...]
