***************************

Erin is a young psychologist, with no time for anything but her work, and unable to remember anything about her past. She leads an uneventful life, but a lonely one, in which she secretly wishes for a soulmate...

Conner is an unusual patient who approaches her, thrusting her into a strange world of darkness that runs beneath our own. He believes himself to be a creature of legend-a werewolf. But he also draws Erin with a roguish charm, and an irresistible feeling that seems to bind them together...

Conner desperately tries to save her from an unknown evil that pursues her with a relentless passion that crosses centuries, an evil that once took her very soul away, somewhere in Erin's lost memories.

As she becomes more entwined in a series of events that will remind her of who she really is, will she make it away from the oncoming darkness unscathed...?

*** Please note, although the main story is concluded in this book, it is an episodic book of the trilogy, and the story continues in 'Erin' and 'Filtiarn'. If you prefer standalone books in a series, this is not for you.

Format: Paperback
I found Miranda Stork's debut novel, 'Conner,' to be as schizophrenic as one of its main characters is suspected of being. Sometimes, it's a straight up YA paranormal romance, throbbing with lust-filled exchanges and arousal. Sometimes, it slips into mild erotica, delivering the goods for those desperately seeking release. And sometimes it crosses the great divide into horror, dripping with blood, guts, and chills aplenty.

The great rock band, Cheap Trick, once said, 'Everything Works If You Let It.' Well, that's the case with 'Conner.' Schizophrenic or not ... PNR, erotica, horror, or some combination thereof ' this novel works in the end, and that's all that matters.

Stork weaves psychiatric mumbo-jumbo (BTW'that is an official term, as per the upcoming DSM-V) into reimagined werewolf and vampire lore, creating a tale that is original and inventive.

And the twist at the end was more satisfying than a shrink telling you that he/she now charges for sixty-minute hours.

HASH(0xa310772c) out of 5 stars Nice, surprising and exciting story! You won't put it down! Aug. 24 2012
By Proserpine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like the imagination of the author for this one! The way the author introduced her story, characters and the plot with Conner into a mental institution for believing he to be a werewolf, was fantastic.

Ms. Stork has a lot of creativity and a good sense of plotting, humour and entertainment. I have to say that the little twist at the end was a great surprise and surely quite interesting!

Erin is a psychologist who's working at the same mental institution where Conner is detained. She was assign to his case. But Conner isn't a standard patient. He seems to believe he's a real werewolf! Oh Yeah! You got me with this punch line!

The whole werewolf background surrounding Conner's. His past, his life since he's in the mental institution, his life as a werewolf and/or human was well described and pretty fun to discover! But the most interesting part was when Conner is trying to convince Erin of his true nature. When Erin begins to doubt, the story got into full speed and everything rush in!

The only bad point (if it's a bad point); it's the fact that it's too long before we learn the true about Erin, Conner and everything about the whole story. I was so caught up in the story, but always keep at bay without answers!!!

I liked the fact that Miranda Stork gives the reader a new Paranormal Romance story that stands out from the original/plain werewolves stories!

Recommended for all PNR lovers, werewolves lovers and for something refreshing in the shape-shifters world! Buy, borrow, and put on your TBR pile!

HASH(0xa3107978) out of 5 stars What a brilliant story Aug. 21 2012
By mr dead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Firstly i would have to say that if you are a fan of werewolf stories then you will need to get this. secondly i would say that if you are not a fan of werewolf stories then you should get it anyway. the story is just brilliant. the twists and turns , the very evolution of the plotline and the characters are so carefuly planned out. just brilliant.
i read one werewolf story before this, by a different author, and although the background to the story was great, it wasnt the best. i think this story has reintroduced the very idea of something i had written off. what i did notice was a remarkable ability to write a non linear storyline. this is a tale that does not just flow from beginning to end. there is much more to it than that as you follow the events surrounding the main character you take a journey forward and back through time to guide the plot along. what was most exciting about it was the last 30% of the story on the kindle. that is the part of the story where i was flipping pages and reading faster.
the cruelty of it all hit me in full when the author left me with one hell of a cliff hanger ending. now i need the next one. that is the mark of a great story, she has now sucked me in and i need more.

HASH(0xa310793c) out of 5 stars Imaginative and Exciting Book Aug. 22 2012
By kgkdh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Erin is a psychologist who agrees to take on a patient who believes he is a werewolf, Conner. Erin and Conner have a hot attraction toward each other, but Erin isn't sure who or what to trust, not even herself or her own memories. What I loved about this book was that there is a such a twist on the traditional werewolf/shifter story, and you never really knew what was going to happen until the end.

I could not stop reading this book until it was finished because I had to know what happened! Could not put it down! Is Conner really a werewolf? Is his world real? Is Erin imagining everything? And the biggest question of all...Will Erin and Conner be together in the end?

This was a well written, imaginative book, and I can't wait to read the next in the series!!!

HASH(0xa3107c30) out of 5 stars You have to know more! June 17 2012
By Maxi Shelton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Miranda is a very cunning when she writes. She tells you just enough to get you interested, then drip feeds you the rest of the plot slowly throughout the book. You have to read until the very end, you are hooked, sucked in, begging for more. You have to read until to very end, to quite simple find out what is really happening, what is it Miranda is not telling you, that you know is in the air and feel in you bones. You are hooked whether you like it or not! A great read.

HASH(0xa310a144) out of 5 stars Fabulous tale from beginning to end! June 7 2012
By Liz @ Fictional Candy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First, I want to say I loved Miranda's dedications at the beginning. They were so very heartwarming!

Erin is a professor who occasionally takes on some therapy cases. Professor Whitfield has a private practice now, and he asks Erin to work on a difficult case. The patient believes he is a werewolf - and he is asking specifically for Erin.

Normally, working at a private practice is against her principles; money should not be able to purchase good health. But something about this case file for Conner beckons her. She tells Professor Whitfield "yes".

"Everyone has a distinct point in their lives where everything in their life changes, be it for better or for worse."

Conner Woods is the patient, and he definitely believes he is a werewolf. He is tall, dark, handsome and a bit menacing in his looks. Right away I'm attracted to him. He has a certain manner, a way with words that captivates you, and you definitely want more.

As for Erin, I like her. She seems like an intelligent woman. But then she starts realizing she can't remember large blocks of time from her own past - just like Conner claims. I really loved how this story built up on itself. The psychology aspect was fascinating. The real question that crept up was "Who is really having the psychotic break? Conner? Erin? Filitiarn? Someone else entirely?

"The touch was almost tender, but the image of a snake coiling itself around her came into her mind, but she decided that was an insult to snakes."

Oh yes, Filitiarn. He's definitely painted as the villain here. Is he really? Somewhere along the line there is a shift, and you aren't sure who is telling the truth and who only believes they are telling the truth! I just thought the whole thing was very exciting in the way it explored how your mind can play tricks on you. Schizophrenia definitely became a question of mine... wait, no, I'm not schizophrenic... wait, no...

And that's exactly what was so awesome about this story. You begin to question everything. Even as Erin undoubtedly starts to fall for Conner, there is a part of her that doesn't trust him. And who the heck is Filitiarn, and how does he fit into this puzzle? And when the blood starts to spill, is it a figment of her imagination or are those people really dead?? Everyone is suspect and you don't know who is on what side, I was even questioning Erin. Perfect!

Then some aspects sort of took on a fairytale feel to me, but remember - fairytales aren't always about the happy princess and her prince. There's the villain, and usually some type of magic involved. The flashbacks and memories in this story really helped to build up the history of everything going on. There are definitely some hair-raising moments. Overall, I found this book a story I couldn't put down. It's a story that is millennia in the making, but its over in the blink of an eye. I can't wait to read book two, Erin. Conner is a must read for all werewolf fans. It has a fresh spin on wolves, and I thought it was great.
