I really enjoyed Quicksilver it kept me absorbed in the storyline from beginning to end and I look forward to reading the next instalment.
Quinn MacValdane only months from his thirtieth birthday was feeling the pressure to take a wife and provide an heir to the family name and land. Quinn decided to take the shortcut through the woods and head to the tavern for a while to distract himself. He had heard the rumours of the woods but shrugged them off as he was a powerful sorcerer who feared not the mere beast to which they spoke. He should have listened! for now he was face to face with an evil he had never seen and although he may survive he will be bound by its curse.
Ravena Macallister has her whole life in front of her. She has her BA in Fashion and is ready to take on the future both personally and professionally. As Ravena readies herself to make the first step in the rest of her life she is stuck with an unforgivable heartache and betrayal that will force her to rethink everything she believed was real.
Deciding to take the trip she had planned to see her father in the Highlands of Scotland Ravena leaves hoping to make sense of all that has occurred. Still devastated by the betrayal, an encounter with Arthur a man Ravena loves like a grandfather is about to make her take an honest look at herself and realise not everything is as it seems. Arthur knows Ravena truth, now it is time to tell her and hope she is ready to face both her destiny and her connection to his family as she is the pure soul he will need if he is to save Quinn from the curse and return thing to the way they should be.
Quicksilver will take you on a journey as Ravena and Quinn must fight pure evil to save everything they love from being destroyed.

This is one of those books I went into thinking I knew what to expect and all my expectations where blown out of the water. There is a slight crossover with the Legend series, not enough that I suggest reading those first but once you meet Prince Breslyn I think you'll want to read them next!
It always surprises me how much Claudy can fit into a book, this one is 270 pages of werewolves, druids, fae, dark magic, prophecies, intrigue, action and romance. I can't wait to see how the next installment builds on this, Claudy's imagination knows no bounds and I love the journey's she takes me on.
I always feel a kinship for her heroines, they are always fiesty and willing to fight for what they believe in and her Hero's are always rather yummy! A winning combination for me.”
“Claudy never stops amazing me with her writing... I am being honest when I say this, every time I read one of her books I tell myself that it is my favorite but then I read another of her books and I say that one is my favorite.. For me her books keep getting better and better..
Whether its historical or paranormal Claudy always makes it magical and enchanting.. She always manages to make her books special.. Each memorable in its own way..
This book was really just beyond amazing! So very magical.. The passion was sizzling.. I was fanning myself and sighing soo much.. Her details are always so vivid, transforming my mind.. I literally felt like I stepped through a portal while reading this book. I was taken into the story so very deeply.. The pace flowed so perfectly..
From page one to the very last page you will be in awe.. Each and every page has a twist or surprise that makes you happy... There are a lot of moments when you will say "Wow that is so cool"
Quinn, a handsome hulking scot.. enough said? no, his accent is soo yummy.. He is a sorcerer and was cursed.. He doesn't realize it but his whole world changes with one look at Rave.
Ravena, is a bad ass female shifter with other secrets trying to get out.. She takes a trip to visit her dad and her whole world changes..
These 2 take you on a wild ride that will include lots of action, passion and sizzling sex scenes.. The sexual chemistry is off the charts.. You can feel the emotion..
Claudy writes extraordinary characters.. so very lovable.. The secondary characters really stood out in this tale and I can't wait to read the 2nd book in the series.. This book was very well written.
Rating: 5 Smoking Stars
Cover: Sexy.. Fits the story perfectly
Characters: Unforgettable and so very lovable
Story line: Addicting with a flowing pace

Ravena MacAllister doesn’t want to admit what she is. She wants to continue pretending she’s just human … only human, like her mother, like her friends.
But she isn’t human.
Heartbreak and betrayal send her off rushing to Scotland, to a familiar haven where she has spent so many summers with her father, but she soon discovers that everything has changed.
From the moment she meets Quinn MacValdane, shock waves travel through him to her and back again, wrapping them in a tide of passion she had never dreamed possible. But if they are to have a future together, she must confront who and what she is, for she will need to call on the powers within her as she becomes embroiled in an adventure that will alter her life forever.
The time for pretending is over.
Lets start off by saying this is one awesome author. Since the first time I picked up one of her novels I was hooked. Claudy's novels are so engaging and filled with tons of romance and adventure. Love her books and they only kept getting better and better.
Wow ! What a way to start off this new series with a serious bang.This novel was a page turner from the being to end !What a great plot to keep you engaged right from page one.
The story is about Ravena MacAllister who is always been different from others but, never really wanted to admit she was different with very special abilities.She wanted to be human so never really explored her special talents . A broken heart takes her off to Scotland to spend the summer with her father but, once there never realizing that she will be asked to participate in and adventure where she will have no choice but to acknowledge her powers and put her powers to the test.
Then we have the sexy shape-shifter who was cursed and sent back in time
Quinn MacValdane and no other can bring him forth but ,Ravena MacAlister. Evil forces are at work and time is an issue making it a life and death situation.
I have to say that the characters in this story were all great loved them all even the bad ones ! (LOL)
There was really a tie for the most likable character but I loved Ravena and Quinn both equally. Just love reading time travel novels a lot so I was so glad to get to read about Ravena and Quinn's adventure.Quinns grand-father confides in Ravena that he needs her help to release Quinn from the curse that has plagued him and his family.
Quinn MacValdane had left his guard down seventy-five years ago and the evil Andrew MacPoole managed to send him through the Quicksilver portal where he couldn't get back to his castle due to a curse.The prophesy says there is one one person who would be able to release Quinn from this curse and Ravena seems to be his chosen mate and the one who would be able to end his entrapment and return him to the future.
Love this adventure. There was so much intrigue going on in the now and its past. The story kept you so engrossed never knowing what would happen next.There is danger lurking and every turn. It seems that the one who put the curse on Quinn may be dabbling in black magic as well and is a Royal Fae to boot.Andrew MacPoole has a story of his own making him and even more intriguing and more dangerous than any of the others.A dangerous Fae with many faces...
Loved the descriptions of the beautiful lands of where Quinn was living.Secrets are unfolded and rhymes and poems are deciphered in order to help Ravena with her quest. The first moment she sees Quinn through the Quicksilver glass she is drawn to Quinn and is having and overwhelming attraction to him like no other.Quinn feels the same for Ravena but, one thing he knows about Ravena from the beginning is she is his life-mate and the only thing he will need to do is convince her of it and in the same breath find a way to be able to carve out a future and hope to break the curse while doing it.
The romance between Ravena and Quinn was a sweet one. Ravena coming from a recent breakup is not wanting a romantic involvement.But, Ravena's hormones are dancing to a different tune!Quinn was a clever handsome fellow and just a down to earth sweet guy who had a sense of humor and new to tread carefully with Ravena giving him the patience of a saint . Ahhh ....Not So easy for a Highlander and a shape-shifter wolf to do as they are bossy and protective all of the time even more so when there instinct takes over knowing that you will die to protect your mate and loved ones.
There were quiet a few surprises I did not see coming but, did have one pleasant surprise and that was that Prince Breslyn found his way into the story as he is definitely a favorite character of mine from Claudy's other novels giving me a huge smile !.
This novel goes into the keeper pile for me as well as Claudy others books. You know you have written a great book when you have the reader looking forward to reading the story all over again.This novel had all the things that book a great book good plot, lots of surprises that keep you own your toes, secrets coming to light and a great romance that forms between two great characters ! This novel will make you laugh and cry and say OMG what next ?
Claudy Conn has done a fantastic job in introducing us to her new characters and up and coming series !
A recommended read to all !”
“Hungry Moon: Quicksilver by Claudy Conn
Hungry Moon Series Book 1
Ravena MacAllister almost messed up her life by just settling for some guy, thanks to her friend Meg that didn't happen. She is content going to the Highlands of Scotland to be with her dad for the summer. A place where she has more freedom to be who she really is, although Rave tried to hide the secrets within, even from herself. Wanting to just live her life as a normal human, something she was not and never would be. Life in the Highlands was not quite what she expected this year though and it was time to unite with herself….or die.
Quinn MacValdane had left his guard down seventy-five years ago and the evil Andrew MacPoole managed to send him through the Quicksilver portal where he couldn’t get back to his castle due to a curse. There was a prophesy about The One, someone who would break the curse. Seems that The One was a beautiful wee lass. Quinn found he immediately wanted to protect her, but how could he, when he was stuck behind the mirror while she could travel to and fro?
Once again Claudy takes her readers to the beautiful Highlands. A place of both beauty and danger. A place full of adventure, excitement, twists, turns and of course….romance. Travel along as Rave struggles to accept who she truly is before she is able to fight both the known and unknown villains, or should I say seen and unseen. She also had to figure out how to get Quinn back into this world. And never forget that not everybody is who they seem to be. The beginning of another great series.
