Conner 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 16 reviews.

The best werewolf novel for years, a truly remarkable acheivement for a first time writer reminissent of an early Anne Rice. This novel plunges you deep into the mind of a werewolf as you follow Erin on her journey into this exciting and often dangerous world. Great suspence and blind twists that will keep you guessing from one chapter to the next until the final unbelievable conclusion.

Review: Whilst the story is told from a young woman's perspective, it certainly didn't put me off. I think that this book will successfully cross the genders in it's appeal. The allure of the werewolf, which I think is in us all, helps identify with some of the main characters. Despite his bestial behaviour I was rooting for Conner from almost the first introduction. The story leads you a merry dance from the present, to the past, and back again, each peice smoothly interweaving with the other. Every chapter reveals a tantilising piece of the jigsaw, dropping clues of what is to happen in the future, along with what has happened in the past. A past that Erin slowly pieces together on her journey, which culminates in a shocking truth. What I Most Liked: I enjoyed the slow building of tension within the story. There was just the right amount of information released as the story progressed, to keep you turning the pages in a quest to discover the conclusion. I also enjoyed the way Miranda tackled the moral aspects of the current problem with world climate change. She points the finger of blame for the state of the climate and the planet, at the people of Earth, yet it is the darker characters of the story that have the best interest of the planet at heart.

I loved this book! I really enjoy werewolf novels, and I've read all of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake novels, and fancied reading something new, but still with werewolves. I came across this book by a random search, but I'm glad I did! Miranda F Stork is a very talented writer, and she writes this with a very poetic style. The story begins with Erin a psychologist getting to work on the case of a man called Conner, who is a werewolf (although you don't find that out until later). The story has plenty of twists and turns, and kept me reading from the first page till the last. Her descriptions are breathtaking, and I could actually smell the forests as she described them! I would recommend this book for anyone who loves werewolf novels with a modern twist on horror, with some romance AND gore thrown in, a really great book. Overall, a great novel, glad I purchased it-I only bought this on e-book format, considering buying it in print now!

This was one of the best books I've read this year. Her level of detailing is incredible, you really feel like you are standing amongst her characters. And her characters themselves are wonderful, they are very three-dimensional, and have a life of their own; you really care about them all. And she has an amazing twist at the end, that I did not see coming! The storyline is great, with good flow, and interesting ideas throughout. If you love horror stories, and want to buy just one book this month, make it this one :D You won't be disappointed.

Miranda Stork is such an amazing writer! She gets you hooked in at the beginning of Conner right till the end. Lucky you don't have to wait for the 2nd book as Erin is out already. The psychological aspect plays a huge part here and it's definitely what astonished me the most. I love the fact that the reader, as the characters, can't escape from questioning everything. Is this for real? Who am I supposed to trust? Who's the bad guy? Wait, is there a bad guy or...? What if...? And these are just some of the questions that will keep rolling in your mind during the entire book, that's why you really won't be able to put it down. You will just have to read it to see just how good this book is - you won't regret it. *I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

 O. M. G. It has been forever since I've picked up a book that I literally could not put down. This book was so captivating, I found myself losing sleep in order to finish it. Conner is such an intriguing person, and his dynamic dual personality was insane! While I knew what was going to happen, it was wonderful to discover how Miranda played everything out. She leaves you in suspense and on the edge of your seat - hoping things will turn out well, and wondering what will happen next. LOVED this book. I had to immediately get Erin, just so I could read more about this couple.

The characters are ridiculous, not well developed. The plot is slow. I stopped reading it. Such a waste of time.

I found Miranda Stork’s debut novel, “Conner,” to be as schizophrenic as one of its main characters is suspected of being. Sometimes, it’s a straight up YA paranormal romance, throbbing with lust-filled exchanges and arousal. Sometimes, it slips into mild erotica, delivering the goods for those desperately seeking release. And sometimes it crosses the great divide into horror, dripping with blood, guts, and chills aplenty. The great rock band, Cheap Trick, once said, “Everything Works If You Let It.” Well, that’s the case with “Conner.” Schizophrenic or not ... PNR, erotica, horror, or some combination thereof … this novel works in the end, and that’s all that matters. Stork weaves psychiatric mumbo-jumbo (BTW—that is an official term, as per the upcoming DSM-V) into reimagined werewolf and vampire lore, creating a tale that is original and inventive. And the twist at the end was more satisfying than a shrink telling you that he/she now charges for sixty-minute hours.

First, I want to say I loved Miranda’s dedications at the beginning. They were so very heartwarming! Erin is a professor who occasionally takes on some therapy cases. Professor Whitfield has a private practice now, and he asks Erin to work on a difficult case. The patient believes he is a werewolf – and he is asking specifically for Erin. Normally, working at a private practice is against her principles; money should not be able to purchase good health. But something about this case file for Conner beckons her. She tells Professor Whitfield “yes”. “Everyone has a distinct point in their lives where everything in their life changes, be it for better or for worse.” Conner Woods is the patient, and he definitely believes he is a werewolf. He is tall, dark, handsome and a bit menacing in his looks. Right away I’m attracted to him. He has a certain manner, a way with words that captivates you, and you definitely want more. As for Erin, I like her. She seems like an intelligent woman. But then she starts realizing she can’t remember large blocks of time from her own past – just like Conner claims. I really loved how this story built up on itself. The psychology aspect was fascinating. The real question that crept up was “Who is really having the psychotic break? Conner? Erin? Filitiarn? Someone else entirely? “The touch was almost tender, but the image of a snake coiling itself around her came into her mind, but she decided that was an insult to snakes.” Oh yes, Filitiarn. He’s definitely painted as the villain here. Is he really? Somewhere along the line there is a shift, and you aren’t sure who is telling the truth and who only believes they are telling the truth! I just thought the whole thing was very exciting in the way it explored how your mind can play tricks on you. Schizophrenia definitely became a question of mine… wait, no, I'm not schizophrenic… wait, no… And that’s exactly what was so awesome about this story. You begin to question everything. Even as Erin undoubtedly starts to fall for Conner, there is a part of her that doesn’t trust him. And who the heck is Filitiarn, and how does he fit into this puzzle? And when the blood starts to spill, is it a figment of her imagination or are those people really dead?? Everyone is suspect and you don't know who is on what side, I was even questioning Erin. Perfect! Then some aspects sort of took on a fairytale feel to me, but remember – fairytales aren’t always about the happy princess and her prince. There’s the villain, and usually some type of magic involved. The flashbacks and memories in this story really helped to build up the history of everything going on. There are definitely some hair-raising moments. Overall, I found this book a story I couldn’t put down. It’s a story that is millennia in the making, but its over in the blink of an eye. I can’t wait to read book two, Erin. Conner is a must read for all werewolf fans. It has a fresh spin on wolves, and I thought it was great.
