Indigo Moon (Garoul Series Book 3)
Jolie is a moody workaholic. She is awkward, contrary, and on occasion just plain mean. Hope is hardworking, popular, and in recovery from a serious illness.
She doesn't need a bizarre boss. She doesn't need office politics. And she doesn't need to work over Thanksgiving either. Nevertheless, that's what she and Jolie end up doing in Little Dip, home of the Garoul clan. An important meeting brings them to the valley where it's assumed Jolie has brought her chosen mate to meet her pack. Much to her consternation Jolie finds she likes this idea, but Hope has no time for romance.
She is eager to get her life, health, and career back on track, nothing more. Jolie is determined to change her mind, but how does a lycanthrope woo a human? A small and super-efficient, bossy boots human at that? When Amy Fortune returns to her childhood home, she discovers something sinister in the air—but is former lover Leone Garoul stalking her or protecting her? Amy Fortune and Leone Garoul were teenage lovers.
Now, years later, Amy returns to Little Dip, the Garoul home valley, to help her aunt finish a botanical project. Except Little Dip is no longer the happy place of Amy's childhood memories. There's something sinister in the woods. And why hasn't Leone moved on? Why does she still dog Amy's every move? As more and more of the Garoul family arrive for a special hunting weekend, parts of the puzzle come together and Amy's fears escalate as she moves closer to the truth—and the secret that has eluded her since childhood.
A destiny in the stars? Together for all eternity? It doesn't work like that. At least not without a lot of blood, sweat, and tears behind the scenes where the Soul Selector spins her magical trickery.
It is her job is to identify soul mates as they enter this world and somehow get them to fall in love. Aphrodite and all the other gods need this purest love of all. They feed on it. But soul mates are notoriously difficult to work with, and the Soul Selector has just found a particularly stupid pair.

Her friends and family have watched her suffer after the loss of her partner and urge her to move on, but all Clara wants is to stand still. Bebe Franklin writes terrible soap episodes and needs a career change.
Her boss hates her; her friends are sharp as knives; all Bebe wants to do is run. And she doesstraight into Clara's calm, ordered, and extraordinary life. For Clara can see ghosts and waits for her dead lover. How can Bebe compete with a love that transcends death, a love that knows no rest? A love that haunts all it touches.
A week in paradise with the ex-girlfriend from Hell. Winifred Martin has a new job, newfound confidence, and a glamorous new lover. In fact, after moving on from a heart-wrenching breakup, Win has a whole new life. Benedikte Benny Fiske has also sold up and moved on, too—to a wonderful Greek island where she can invest in herself again and find peace and quiet.

Benny is equally shocked to find Win doing so well and looking so gorgeous She's convinced Win is wasting her time on this vacuous new lover. I don't think it's the story line itself that grabbed me.
The adjectives that come to mind are wordless and unspoken. Yet, this is wordcraft! I'm stumped for now, but duly impressed. Gill, if you know how you crafted such depth and intensity, please do it again!! Mar 19, Penguin rated it it was amazing. I just could not put this book down. I actually lost sleep because I couldn't stop reading this. So I will say to compare this to Ambereye itself would be unjust. I think this book is just as good as Ambereye, albeit different.
I love, love, loved the detail work regarding the experience of one of the main character's as she adapted to change. I will say that even though I loved the detail work about the senses of the previously mentioned character, some of the details seemed redundant.
Like the I just could not put this book down. Like the internal monologues started to blend together and sounded more like ramblings that go around in circles. So maybe a middle ground in some parts will help. I also was sad when it ended, feeling like there should have been a bit more. But, I am off to read Silver Collar! Mar 23, Jem rated it it was amazing Shelves: While the first two books are about the Garoul clan, Indigo Moon is all about the outcasts and their wild ways. From the first scene to the last, the author manages to craft a very tense and suspenseful read.
The tone is much darker than the second book, with the life and fate of the human protagonist always hanging in the balance. And the descriptions of her transformation to the other side and her heightened senses felt so realistic. I wonder though, how come she never suffer While the first two books are about the Garoul clan, Indigo Moon is all about the outcasts and their wild ways. I wonder though, how come she never suffered from any of the horrible ill-effects that Connie had to go through in her own journey to the dark side in the 1st book hide spoiler ] Jan 28, D.

I just can't get enough of Gill McKnight's werewolf series. The author's unique sense of humor and ability to story-tell continue make a very appealing combination. Ambereye is still my favorite of the three books, but Indigo Moon is another delightful read. I highly recommend it and was excited to see a teaser for a fourth novel coming in this series. Apparently the author doesn't cease to have great idea for these Garouls clan, I am glad Hope and Jolie had some scenes in this that created a closure for the abrupt ending from the second book.
However, this third installment created yet, another abrupt ending. The author also did a great job in describing the main c Apparently the author doesn't cease to have great idea for these Garouls clan, I am glad Hope and Jolie had some scenes in this that created a closure for the abrupt ending from the second book. The author also did a great job in describing the main character's suffers during her entire infection period. What good excuse does she have for unwilling to tell Isabelle the truth? Ok, maybe to stop Isabella from going crazy, but Ren and Isabelle never manage to have a decent emotional conversation about what happened back in Ren's valley regarding what Isabelle saw and why she escaped.
Emotional conversation such as this, Isabelle: Feb 12, lov2laf rated it really liked it Shelves: McKnight really shines in this werewolf series. As a writer, she takes us into the full sensory experience of a wolf and all of the politics that go into the social order of a pack which makes for a fascinating read. Whereas Ambereye was more of a comedy romance this book returns closer to the first book with some mystery and dark undertones. We see Hope and Godfrey return and are introduced to a new werewolf pack.
This can be a standalone book but I recommend reading the first two books, as well McKnight really shines in this werewolf series. This can be a standalone book but I recommend reading the first two books, as well. I enjoyed this 3rd story in the series and recommend reading. Apr 18, Alena rated it liked it Shelves: I can't quite let go of this series, can I? After I enjoyed the second one so much I had to try this one.
I have to admit I was kind of disapointed, especially with the first half of the book. It dragged a lot, even though I liked the 'pack' dynamics, but not the dynamics between Isabelle and Ren. Things picked up in the second half, when the plot line described in the blurb finally started, the blurb had started to feel like false advertising by then.
The hunt in the second I can't quite let go of this series, can I? The hunt in the second part was very fun, and I totally enjoyed all that was going on between the characters.

Apr 06, Ahi rated it really liked it. Feb 25, Tara rated it really liked it Shelves: This was really good, a solid entry in the series, but I still think the second is my favourite. I also felt like the description was kind of misleading--all of that does happen, but so does a whole bunch of other stuff that's much more central to the story, and it's not all about Hope and Godfrey bringing someone to safety. Another good Garoul story. Did not get attached to the characters as quickly as the 1st or 2nd. But about half way in, was intrigued.
So far the 2nd is my favorite. Aug 20, C. Mack rated it it was amazing.
What can I say, I read it in a day Dec 24, Angel rated it it was amazing Shelves: I am so hung up on all of these amazing characters! It's such a delight to meet the characters from the previous books in the Garoul Series and it is even better to be introduced to new and vibrant characters with such strong personalities.
Isabella captured my heart from the first instant and let's not talk about Ren, she's beguiling and sexy with her dark and brooding ways. I really appreciate the way the author really delved into the inner workings of being a werewolf and giving more insight I am so hung up on all of these amazing characters!
I really appreciate the way the author really delved into the inner workings of being a werewolf and giving more insight into the emotional upheaval a werewolf goes through. I also very in love with the description of the Little Dip landscape and the dialogue between each character flowed seamlessly.
After reading this story I am anxious to read the next book in the Garoul Series! Jan 03, Kitty Kat rated it it was amazing Shelves: Isabelle is attacked on her way home but remembers little. All she knows is that Ren is caring for her as she heals. This was a fascinating mystery and I really appreciated how the whole mythology around the Garouls was opened up.
It was hot and sexy at times and a thrilling chase at breakneck speed at others. It had me breathless. I love this series and am so glad Gill McKnight is writing a new one, due for release this year. Just keeps getting better And better. Although the book is steeped in supernatural lore the characters personalities are remarkably very realistic and the story is very well developed that you actually start to consider the truth.
The book is very well written and funny in places. The scenery is to die for. Seriously who wouldn't want to live there. A seriously talented author, hey she's made me a believer. Good read Just getting to learn all of the family members and loving it. I am off to read book 4 in the Garoul family series.
Mar 15, Erin rated it really liked it Shelves: Another winner from Gill McKnight! After two wonderful novels, Goldenseal and Ambereye, Indigo Moon keeps the series quality high and in my favorites. Once again the tone shifts from the previous book in the series, away from romantic comedy and instead becomes dark romantic mystery. Isabelle continues McKnight's string of compelling heroines. I really liked her and felt for her. Her situation was so unknowable and she was all alone in it. At least as far as she knew. She had real strength thoug Another winner from Gill McKnight!
She had real strength though when she needed it although a few times her indecisiveness grated. Ren was interesting once again, but we spent less time with her getting to see from her perspective and that keeps her from winning you over as much as Leone and Jolie.
One note that may matter to you and may not, there is only one steamy scene in the entire book and I felt it could have used at least one more. I don't personally need sex scenes every few pages like some books in the genre do it, but it is a part of this kind of book I look forward to. A great continuation and now I'm looking forward to Silver Collar.
I really hope McKnight has the next one in the series in the works already, I don't know what I'll do without more of these brilliant books! Dec 04, Natsu rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book definitely cost me some shut eye my fault for starting it at 8pm. Unlike the previous books in the series, this one was darker and a gore-fest at some level. I felt like I was right there where the bloody mess was.
It tells a story of feral weres and sibling rivalry gone awry. The romance seemed like a sidestory, but a significant one. It's also sort of a prodigal son daughter thing, but not quite. Mar 15, Dogwhisperer rated it liked it. This was the best book of the series so far. It was a fast read and had great characters added to the family.
