I’m C.D. Gorri, Paranormal Fiction Author and Creator of the Grazi Kelly Universe. I’ve always been an avid reader, and I have a profound love for books and literature. When I’m not writing or taking care of my family I can usually be found with a book or tablet in my hand. I live in my home state of New Jersey with my husband, our children, and our dogs, Dash and Chewie.
I’m a busy mom of three and finding time for leisurely reading was never easy, so I write stories that are fast-paced, yet detailed with satisfying conclusions. If I thought making time to read was difficult, I was in for a huge surprise when I started writing, but now that I started, I can’t picture myself doing anything else! I love writing powerful women and strong heroes who face relatable problems in supernatural settings! I plan on increasing the GK Universe with each and every story I publish.

It took me forever to actually read this book, but it was really good! I got it a few months after the first one and I didn't remember exactly how it ended, so I had to read that one again. Yeah!
Grazi has just come to terms with being a werewolf, but she still doesn't understand why she is so special. In addition, she finds herself plagued with dreams of a blue eyed boy who begs for her to save him. In this book, magic isn't just black and white.
What I really loved about this book was that it challenged everything the characters believed. They were all taught from a young age that magic is evil, but they find themselves relying on it. This allowed some interesting people to be introduced. I think my favorite in this book was Alessio.
I didn't like how the book ended though. There was a battle scene that just seemed like it was a little lacking in detail. It was an important scene that, even though it got the point across, it fell a bit short.
Overall, I really did like the book and I want to read the next one!

The story continues as Grazi tries to adapt to the knowledge of not only being a werewolf but also probably one of prophecy. There is plenty of action, teenage drama and humour as the modern werewolf integrates into human society. I just loved the ‘like us on Facebook’ comment.
Aimed at the young adult audience this book could well be read by adults and enjoyed.
I was gifted this book for an honest review.

I rarely ever find a second installment in a series better than the first novel, but in this case I have to say I was really surprised! I enjoyed Wolf Moon and learning about Grazi Kelly's new life as a werewolf, but the continuation of that story in Hunter Moon was even better. The sequel was more action packed and delved deeper into the werewolf origin story and her family legacy. I also loved the romance aspect with Grazi and Ronan. Can't wait to read the next one!

Grazi's adventure continues through this supernatural tale enticing you to read more. Grazi recently found out she is a werewolf and a very special one too. She slowly gets to know more of the pack and is adjusting to this new life. She continues her training to be able to fight the upcoming battle. Grazi notices how different she is from the rest, she has abilities that no one has ever had. On top of that she has to deal with her awful aunt and cousins at home, creatures finding her, her feelings for Ronan and Sebastian, and still trying to life as normal of a life as possible. She learns things about her past,
Present, and future that could change everything.
This book was just as good as the first! There are new twists and turns that shocked me and made me even more immersed in the book. Grazi, going through all of this, still remains strong and a good person Through the whole journey. I loved this character because even when it got tough she still moved on. She still fights creepy creatures and is falling for Ronan. I loved everything about the book!

In the continuation of Grazi’s journey, we are with her during her training as a werewolf, the normal teenage struggles girls face, and mysterious targeted attacks against her. The story unfolds in a way where we meet new characters and can either form a positive opinion about them, or become suspicious about their past and motives. I was very pleased how the sweet love story between Grazi and her protector, Ronan, developed. Grazi is a capable heroine, loyal to her family (even the ones none of us like), and tackles her training head-on while filled with the same insecurities most teenage girls face.
I love how little tidbits are dropped along the way that keep the reader guessing about the plot and characters, yet we are given enough answers to keep from getting too frustrated. I can’t wait to read how Grazi’s story plays out and learn the mysteries of her family’s past.

( I received this book free from the Author for my honest review )
4.5 stars >.<
I am astonished, I hardly have any words to write, my mind is a little blank, well that could also be from my cold Kj X-p
There is such an improvement form the first book. Though I did quit enjoy the first, I was a little harsh in my review about the way it was written. I won't rewrite my first reviews points, that won't be, well, right.
From the first chapter to the last I was hooked. The struggle for Grazi to come to terms with who she is felt very real to me. Not like most other YA's where the protagonist learns that she is paranormally special in some way (Werewolf, vampire, witch, ect...) and just you knows, excepts it. Oh hey your [insert paranormal creature here].. protagonist is all like, oh I am, cool, lets to fight stuff. That's probably a little biased of me, but, you all now what I'm saying.
I very much enjoyed Grazi's struggle with the two boys she may or may not like. Though at times I just wanted to slap her and point her in the right direction. (view spoiler)
What got me, what really makes me giddy about this book is that though, there is school drama, boys, and all that other teenage angst going one, the plot doesn't get lost. It's alway there, always in the back of Grazi's head. She's mature and knows how much danger she's actually in.
Her reactions to one of passages in her mothers diary, was perfect. Not that smashing a mirror is, you know, healthy, but her anger, very well placed. (Glass hurts, never hit one out of anger kids, not worth it.)
If I could back hand her aunt, I would smack her teeth in. She reminds me of own of my own aunts. She got no time for anyone else in the extended family (There's like 23 of us, cousins that is, and that's not counting their children. That's a lot of people to shun. Only thing she really works hard at..HA!!) I'm not as tight lipped as Grazi, so lets just say we aren't allowed in the same room. And her kids, don't get me started, do not wrong my ass.
Lets get back on track shall we.
I'm pretty good at figuring out the ending of a books, or the main plot, (movies, TV shots, ect...) in the first few chapters, but, though I connected some of the dots, I couldn't connect them all, making me happy and frustrate at the same time. I do believe (not 100%) that I have one of the crucial dots connect. I will keep that one to myself, because if I'm right, oh boy, >.<
I can't wait for the next book, there isn't a release date as of yet, but it will be out this year, I just hope it isn't to late in the year, I might just go a little mad... good time, good time.
I highly recommend this series, it's a diamond in rough. Take my word and take a chance, you will not be disappointed.

This book definitely earnt its four stars. C.D. Gorri put in the effort to create an original plot. The highlights for me? A believable female lead, a unique male, a fulfilling story, as part of a series, and multiple sub-plots to keep the suspense high.
There are many books on werewolves now. I can promise you, you’ve never read one quite like this. Many qualities are the same, but the skill with which this book has been written gives them a new life. There are also a few surprises which I have not encountered in other paranormal novels.
Maria Grazi is a girl who has recently found out about the werewolf world. What I really loved about her was how the author has so acurrately given her a voice appropriate for her age. She has uncertainties just like every teenage girl. A real highlight for me was although the love interest Ronan told her of her feelings she was still awkward in her interactions with him. I don’t know how many times I’ve read a YA novel where the male and female just suddenly start interacting as though they’ve known each other for years. Relationships take time to build to this and this novels believability shot through the roof when I crossed these scenes. I also loved how Maria questioned the workings and ideals of the hounds. This showed her strength.
Ronan. *sigh in yearning*. A werewolf story where the lead male isn’t macho? C.D. Gorri, thank you! Ronan respects Maria. Now I haven’t read the first Hunter Moon so I don’t know if this has always held true, but I was pleased to see it in this novel. Smoking hot and still reasonable. What more could you ask for? I liked the hints about how he will develop in dominance, too. I foresee some interesting conflicts surrounding this in Gorri’s future books.
I truly think each book in a series should be able to be a stand alone book. This was achieved. Of course there is a cliff-hanger ending to entice us to read more. The twisting sub-plots were interesting and while we mainly want to follow Maria in the back of our mind we are thinking about what will happen to Nonna’s debt and her cousin.
A couple of minor quibbles kept this from being a fiver. The dialogue sometimes seemed stilted and not quite real. Especially Ronans. And there were a couple of plot developments which seemed abrupt and a little forced, perhaps in order to introduce a more important storyline. These are two things which are easily fixed and would make this book perfect. I will stress that my enjoyment of the book wasn’t lessend, these were just little blips in how well my belief was suspended by the author. There was also a religious strand weaved through the book. Surprisingly, I rarely found this to be overwhelming. In fact, in most instances it lent to the books authenticity. The only two times I questioned it being overworked? At the very end, in her final prayer and when she asked the online gamer about God.
Overall, I enjoyed the characters, the original plotline and the setting. C.D. Gorri has done well to portray the delicate balance of a teenage hound trying to live in a normal world. Which is easier said than done. I’m sure I will be re-reading this book.
Recommended for lovers of YA paranormal fantasy.

Book 2 continues from where book 1 left off and the story is wonderful. It is just as awesome as the first book and I just love the story of the teenager werewolf Grazi Kelly and everything she has to go through. I would so recommend this book for you to pick up and read. It is a kind of book that once you start reading you won't want to stop until you are finished. I am waiting for the next book 3 to come out to find out what happens next and want to know what else happens to Grazi. Go get your copy if you have not read this book yet, it is a very good book and I enjoyed it very much!

The book 2 starts from where book 1 left off. The story continues. It is just as good as the first book and again I will say that it has been one unique werewolf series. I admire Gorri's way of writing. All the characters in this book are great and the story line is just amazing. It is a 5-star read and I'd definitely love to read more of it and recommend it to others too.
The story becomes more intriguing by the minute. It is full of surprises and very entertaining. Grazi is a teenage girl who recently finds out that she can also turn into furry creatures- she is a werewolf. It is pretty new to her and life with the pack held lots of wonders, as far as she is concerned. There is so much she still needs to learn about her father's family, werewolves and herself. It is a journey where she learns to grow and meet her destiny.
Ronan is another werewolf who also happens to he her guardian. They both learn to fight together and there is something about him that Grazi finds irresistible. Her wolf approves of his wolf too. But he might be interested in her cousin. In my opinion Ronan and Grazi deserve each other. ;)
They are fighting witches and also helped by a witch. Apparently not all of them are so bad. This makes it even more interesting and worth reading. I am happy that I read this one too as I had loved the first book as well.
P.S. I want to that the author for generously providing and ARC. My review has not been affected by that fact at all. :)
