I'll be honest … my first reaction when reading some of the paragraphs in “First Born” was “WHA …?  Where did THAT come from?  What the h is going on??”  I soon realized this was intentional on the part of author Tricia Zoeller – her protagonist Lily Moore is having the same reaction.  As she sees what is happening, the reader sees it as well.  It was an unpleasant reader experience early in the book, but once I realized the author's intent, I grew accustomed and comfortable with it. The basic plot – 20-something Lily Moore is a shapeshifter, except that she doesn't know it – yet.  Unfortunately for her, other people have determined this to be a likelihood and she has become a target.  Who can she trust?  Co-workers?  Her brother?  Her deceased father's former partner on the police force?  The Atlanta police, especially that good looking detective that investigated her former boyfriend's murder months earlier?   This novel is not your typical urban fantasy.  There are no werewolves, no vampires, and no zombies – each reader will have to make their own determination as to whether this is a good thing or a bad thing.  Further, Atlanta and north Georgia are not traditional locales for urban fantasy, but are places that the author knows well and can describe for the benefit of the reader. Perfect? No, but what is?  Sometimes, the author took longer to clarify the aforementioned confusion than this reader was comfortable with – and sometimes the situation seemed so clear that it was frustrating that our protagonist couldn't figure out what was occurring and why!  Still, I was impressed by Ms. Zoeller's first book in this series and look forward to the next.  (Uh, Tricia … I/we are waiting … where IS it???) RATING: 4 stars DISCLOSURE: I won this book from the author in a random draw at a book festival.  No conditions were set or agreed to as a condition of receipt, although a polite “thank you” appeared to be appreciated.

Lily Moore's bad date kicks off a chain of events she never saw coming. She blacks out and comes to a different person that what she started out the night as. Finding the police looking for her she goes on the run and hides out at a friends house right under their nose and they don't realize it is her. She manages to get to her brother to see if he can help her figure out what is going on. People who are close to her seem to be in danger and she know she has to figure it out. Her brother does have a few family secrets he know that he finally reveals to her but even he doesn't know how far down the secrets go and what they all mean. Lily finds herself not only hiding from the law but she seems to be the target of danger and has been for a while. She has to figure out, tap into and get her new abilities under control or more people may be in danger. It's time for her to look into the past to hopefully live for the future. Starting out I wasn't sure what to think of Lily. I thought she was going to be stuck for a while because her fear was controlling her. She really took off as a character for me when she started to control her fear and started using her head. Don't think she is weak because she isn't she really comes into her own in this book. She has so much about her families life and secrets she has to learn it's really a wonder she comes out as strong as she did. At one point when something happens to her back I think I would have died of a heart attack lol. There is several other characters you will get a chuckle out of, hate or in Lily's case lust after at the worse times lol. I really enjoyed this book as Lily is unique in her power. I would never had seen it coming what happens to her after she blacks out. Her reactions at times are very funny. One seen involving a bald head had me giggling for sure. Yes I am being vague about this book because I don't want to ruin it for others. You get to see a woman come into her own and become something greater in this book. As I mentioned there is several laughs but you also get a different kinda ability to read about. There is danger, secrets to be uncovered and so much more. I highly recommend this book to one and all. Once you start reading you won't want to stop. You keep going to see just what she is going to uncover next or what will happen next. I love the colors on the cover. The picture fits the book perfectly as well.
