"Moonflower" by EDC Johnson is a story that will transport you to a world of sci-fi and fantasy. The story is how after her father's death Josephine Wood is moved to the city by her mother. She hates her city life. The twist in the story starts after Josie meets with a car accident. She finds herself transported to a strange land and the only connection she has with her old world is her back pack. The story is very fascinating as it shuttles between sci-fi and fantasy. And it takes a different turn as Josie is saved by Lucius who has royal blood. The author manages to capture the reader's attention with suspense and intrigue. The narration is very descriptive and gripping. The reader is curious to know what happens next when Josie meets the wolf. Feelings of fear and surprise run throughout the book.

The highlight of the story is Lucius's extraordinary power to change into a wolf. That makes the story even more intriguing. Lucius is very kind and tries to win her attention and love along with his older brother Donovan who is the heir to the Conri wealth. "Moonflower" is a book that evokes a lot of curiosity in the reader. Josie's struggle to find her way back home after being lost and then meeting Lucius keeps the reader wondering what would happen next. Would Josie go back to her mother? Or would she stay back with Lucius the wolf, or Donovan?
