In 1349, Gillian flees into the woods to escape the plague that apparently will kill her mother and younger brother. Shapeshifters Nim Wei and her former mentor and rival Auriclus finds Gillian. Both try to recruit the lass to join their pack. Though she prefers the glitter of materialism offered by Nim, she selects Auriclus and his caves. He changes her into one of them, which ages her into adulthood before he dumps her on a pack led by Ulric.

After spending time with the pack and knowing Ulric wants her as his queen, Gillian leaves though she cherishes the hunt and making love with her leader. Noble Aimery Fitz Clare catches a falcon that is actually Gillian in hiding from her pack, especially her angry former lover and leader. As Gillian falls in love with her gentle handler, she knows how much she endangers her beloved if her pack finds him.

This paranormal historical romance is a delight because the shapeshifters seem very real even when Gillian ages almost instantly. Gillian is a strong lead protagonist though her thirst for human knowledge is not fully explained. Aimery is a compassionate second son whose gentleness is strengthened by his courage. Readers will stay up till midnight finishing Emma Holly¿s wonderful tale.

What fun! This was my first book I read from Emma Holly, and she just gained one more dire hard fan. This woman can write! Her story is different, her characters are complete, and you have so much fun reading this book, you never want it to end. One of the things I really liked was she developed more than just the primary characters, so when you read the book, you really get involved with all of the major characters and their own stories. What fun! This one is on my keeper shelf!

If you like vampire romances, and probably even if you don't, give this marvelous book by Emma Holly a try. She has created a world of vampire or Upyr that is as engrossing as Christine Feehan's Carpathian world. The world seems as fully articulated as if Ms.Holly had been writing in this world for years instead of a first book with a new set of characters!

I tried reading Catching Midnight. I felt like it went on forever. I couldn't get into the story at all. I never finished reading it. Good thing I only got it for 25 cents.
