Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Angela Knight returns to the world of vampires and werewolves in this hot, fast-paced thriller set in a small southern town. Tough, sexy Diana London works two jobs: city manager by day and voluntary police officer by night. Her ability to turn into a werewolf -- or even a German shepherd -- is a definite plus for police work, though it's hell on the libido one month a year. Diana's talents tell her that the most recent murder in Verdaville has been committed by some kind of magical being. When Lyr, King of the Faeries, and his long-haired men turn up to investigate the murders from their end, her hunch is confirmed. The rest is a whirlwind of action and passion as Diana and Lyr take care of her desires, put spells on mere mortals, and track down their deadly quarry -- even as Lyr's murderous brother tries to kill him.

Interviews & Essays

Heart to Heart Interview with Angela Knight

Heart to Heart: You've been a comic book writer and a newspaper writer. Are you able to use that past experience in some way in your writing now?

Angela Knight: Definitely. For one thing, my comic book editor, Dwight Zimmerman, taught me the nuts and bolts of character and plot construction. And in many ways, my action sequences still owe something to comics, in that they're intricate and longer than fight scenes in most romances. You'll see that in Master of the Moon, which features lots of sword fights and magical battles. My newspaper writing also had an impact on my work, because as a reporter I covered everything from town council meetings to murders. That gave me a solid knowledge of how crimes are investigated and how small towns operate. In Master of the Moon, my heroine, Diana London, is based on a real city manager I met while covering the town of Woodruff. In fact, the fictional Verdaville is a dead ringer for Woodruff, right down to the mill villages and tiny police force. The politicians of the real Woodruff aren't cynical and hapless like the ones in Verdaville, but I needed to take a little artistic license to make things tougher on my heroine. HtoH: About that heroine….You've created an amazingly tough and sexy heroine who has a day job as a city manager and moonlights for the police department as a werewolf. When did you start thinking about this book -- and what were the challenges in writing it?AK: Actually, I was inspired to write the book after I did a story on Woodruff's K-9 unit. I was very impressed with the dogs and their cop handlers and I started thinking: What if the dogs were werewolves? I loved that idea so much, I'm writing another book using it, featuring Diana's brother, Jim London.HtoH: Some authors find it awkward to write sex scenes, but clearly you don't, and your readers love that. Do you have a working theory about writing erotic scenes? AK: Love scenes must do just as much to advance the plot, the characterization, and the romance as every other scene in the book. They should not be something thrown in to titillate readers and satisfy an editor, because that makes them nothing more than porn, no matter how tasteful and well written they are. HtoH: Clearly vampires and magical creatures intrigue you. Did you read Anne Rice as a teenager? Did you read a lot of fantasy as well? What other works inspired you? AK: I discovered Interview with a Vampire in high school, and from then on I was hooked. I also fell in love with Laurel K. Hamilton's Anita Blake books, as well as Tonya Huff's Victoria Nelson series. I'm a big P. N. Elrod fan too; her vampire private eye series has always been one of my favorites.HtoH: What new projects are you working on right now?

AK: I'm writing Master of Wolves, the sequel to Master of the Moon. Werewolf Jim London, investigating the murder of his best friend, steals a page from his sister's book and goes undercover as a police K-9. His partner is a beautiful sheriff's deputy with no idea that her German shepherd, Rambo, is actually a handsome hunk. Obviously, the fur will fly when she finds out the truth! (Sorry. I couldn't resist.) Thank you so much for the opportunity to talk to Heart to Heart readers!

    Too much sex not enough substance

    I like erotica but this just wasn't as well balanced as I'd like. The plot was simple but acceptable but was clearly not enough to fill this many pages. The book could easily have been shorter and probably would have been improved by it as this many sex scenes simply gets repetitive. Diana was a bit crude and lacked charm to balance her character.

    I enjoyed the previous novel a bit more than this followup. My personal preference in fantasy is a few more rules and limitations on the use of magic. In this series, the vast scope of magical abilities makes it way too easy to find alternative options for the characters than the ones they choose.

    Excellent aranormal police procedural romance

    Tony Shay and Jim London were both seventeen when they did their first shapeshifting ¿Change¿ together along with their third pal Steve Carson, who died during the Transformation. Now several years later, bail enforcement agent Tony is dead Jim feels the Clarkston PD is involved as he smells rotten death magic on the corpse of his pal and a similar odor from Police Chief George Ayers. --- Vowing to Tony¿s mother Mary to uncover the truth, Jim knows that the department needs a new K-9 dog ever since the last one vanished. Taking a page from the book of undercover investigation ¿written¿ by his reporter sister Diana (see MASTER OF THE MOON), Jim changes into a German Shepard so that he can listen to the cops talk. Officer Faith Weston is assigned as his handler. As Jim hides who he is and his desire for Faith, she quickly realizes that her K-9 is no ordinary dog. They team up to try to root out the corruption in the department, to learn who magically murdered Tony and to return Tony¿s purloined heart to his mother. That is if they live long enough to do so. --- In many ways MASTER OF WOLVES is the male equivalent of the delightful MASTER OF THE MOON with its shapeshifting undercover story line. However, the paranormal police procedural romance provides a fresh take on working as a K-9 inside a corrupt police department where everyone except Jim¿s beloved handler smells dirty, but he fears that his heart hides the rot of his soulmate. Fans will enjoy the latest fabulous thriller from Angela Knight, grandmaster of the paranormal romantic suspense. --- Harriet Klausner

    Good Stuff

    Just the right amount of suspenseful and sexy! I originally found out about this series by reading one of her short stories in Bite. I loved it and I'm happy to say that after reading a book from this series, I was not disappointed. I'm going out to buy the first book in this series tonight. Looking forward to starting it this weekend! Also, if you love this series, you should check out the Broken Heart Series (suggestion) - it's really good as well!

    Must Have Book

    I stumbled upon the Megaverse series by Angela Knight because I had read all of the Carpathian series. What a wonderful find!!! I enjoyed the character play between King Llyr and Diana. The originality of this story is outstanding, witty and fun. I will keep this book in my permanent library and reread it when ever the mood strikes.

    Started out great...

    This book started out strong with alot of potential but as soon as sex was introduced the plot thinned out and that seemed to be the focus. I stopped reading it halfway thru.

    I am highly impressed with Angela's writting. Her writting is truly genius, very erotic, funny, intense and beautiful. I am anxiously waiting for any new books and will look for some older ones that I haven't read.

    Great Read!!

    What a great book. I couldn't put it down. This book contains all the elements a book could possibly need. You have strong characters, romance, steamy, erotic love scenes, and action. Even though this book continues the Mageverse series started in the anthology Hot Blooded, it can be read as a stand alone. Ms Knight is such an incredibly talented author, that once you read this book, you will put her on your must be read list.

    wonderful pranormal tale tale

    Verdaville, South Carolina city manager and part time police officer Diana London uses her werewolf nature to help fight crime at night. However, her efforts fail to prevent a homicide from occurring. As she works on the investigation team, King Llyr Galatyn ruler of the Cachamwri Sidhe enters the mortal realm to fight an influx of rogue vampires nesting in Verdaville. Llyr thinks his brother King Ansgar, monarch of the Moreven Sidhe, who wants to commit fratricide, is behind the murder and attacks in the small town...................... Llyr is stunned when he meets Diana, a magical creature like him. It is not her magic or her kind use to help humans that shakes his core. He is attracted to her but also knows her as his siren from his erotic fantasy dreams. Diana shares his deep regard as he has been the star of her evening respites. They team up to rid the town of the vampires and uncover the identity of the supernatural killer that Llyr prays is not his sibling................ MASTER OF THE MOON, the sequel to the delightful MASTER OF THE NIGHT, is a wonderful tale that continues the previous tale, but has the strength to stand alone. The story line combines a torrid paranormal romance with an exhilarating police procedural. Fans of romantic fantasy will not find anyone better than Angela Knight who serves up a one sitting keeper................... Harriet Klausner
