Mira had her life all planned out until the night a chance mugging turned it all upside down. The after-effects of the so-called mugging left her a were-cat who did not want to be one, who ran out on her life, and was searching for a way to make it all go away. Erik was sure he had the perfect life until he returned home from a conference to find Mira gone; now after a year he has finally tracked her down. He is determined to find some answers as to why she left. As Erik returns to her life, Mira learns more about her being a were-cat, finding out for the first time that she is only a cub, not a full-grown attack monster she thought she was. Knowing this, she and Erik work together to uncover more information; the only problem is that a full grown were-cat gone bad is hunting Mira. Moonshadows tells the were-cat legend in the Native American tradition, and that is where Erik and Mira will need to look to find the information and help she needs. Claude Dancourt has written a story mixing a good vs evil theme, with the were-cat and romance; a tricky balance to say the least.

Moonshadows is a bit of a different take on the were-cat story, this time coming from the viewpoint of a person who was turned without their knowledge or consent, and how they are fighting to find a way out of this. At the same time, there is the story of good and evil, Mira never realizing that there could be a good to this, and the fight between them. Mixed in the middle of it all is the romance between Mira and Erik torn apart by the actions of one night that changed Mira's life forever, and her belief that Erik could never accept it. Claude Dancourt does a good job of weaving the different threads into a cohesive story that makes sense. If you are a fan of the paranormal genre, then this is a great book.
