After accidentally shifting into a wolf—and getting stuck—Tehya, herself a vampire, has spent the last twelve years as the pet of Lobo, another vampire who has the unique gift of communicating with wolves.

When Lobo found Tehya starving and nearly frozen to death, he took her in and nursed her back to health, all the while completely unaware that she was really a fellow vampire. But there was always something special about her, and he finds out exactly how special after she’s injured and returned to her true form. Desire collides with danger as he soon finds that he must protect not only Tehya but also himself..

I liked parts of this novella but frankly I think I like the 'clan' bits of this series best. Lobo has been exiled from the Moonbound Clan of vampires and threatened with death, a vampire who can also shift into any creature (or human) of a similar size, from a coyote to a grizzly bear, he was accused of shape-shifting into another vampire in order to seduce the vampire's mate. Lobo would have given up on life, without a clan he was vulnerable to humans who would want to make him a slave, if it hadn't been for the female wolf which he found badly injured over a decade ago. The two have become inseparable companions in the forest where they live until one day Tehya, the wolf, is badly injured by poachers and is likely to die. Lobo realises that the only way of saving his best friend's life is to carry her to the lair of the Moonbound Clan which has the nearest doctor, even if the way he gains entry could ultimately cost him his life. What Lobo doesn't know is that Tehya is actually a vampire who accidentally shifted into a wolf and has no idea how to shift back. She has subconsciously been projecting her vampire self into Lobo's dreams, he assumes that Tehya must be the wolf familiar of a vampire, perhaps one enslaved by the humans. I found the beginning with the lone vampire living in the woods with only his faithful wolf companion to be a bit slow, I felt I had read the same kind of set up in way too many PNR stories. I really enjoyed the bit where Lobo and Tehya interact with the Moonbound Clan, the politics, the changing alliances, the changes that Hunter has wrought in the clan since he became the leader. Loved it. Then there was the obligatory vampire sex which seemed to go on and on and on, in a novella the ratio of sex to plot needs careful consideration and I felt there was too much (only a personal view). I liked the plot resolution and the hint of a cliffhanger (can't say more, cos spoilers), looking forward to the next in the series. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

One thing I loved about this story was Tehya’s character. After becoming a vampire, Tehya accidentally shifts into a wolf and is unable to shift back. Unfamiliar with being a wolf and unable to hunt or properly care for herself as such, she ends up in a pretty bad state by the time Lobo comes across her. Thinking she’s a wolf, he mends her, and takes her on as his pet companion. He has no clue that the wolf who’s protected him and been by his side for twelve years is actually a fellow vampire. Even though the author sort of gives you an idea on how they came to pair up and their close connection to each other, I would have loved for this to be a full novel. Mainly because I would have just liked more time with Tehya. One thing is for sure, I hope we don’t have to wait another 3 years for the next book to come out. I have really enjoyed this series and the world the author created. I know that vampires seem to be a dying breed in books lately, but the spin that the author puts on her vampires breathes new life into them and makes them fun to read again.

Larissa Ione was one of the first paranormal romance authors I ever read. I was hooked instantly. Ms. Ione can write like nobody’s business and pull emotions out of readers with a snap of her wicked good dialogue or the pulse-pounding action. Forsaken by Night is book 2.5 in her MoonBound Clan Vampires series. It was released previously in the Blood Kiss Anthology, but is packaged individually here. Tehya’s been stuck in the form of a wolf, and she just doesn’t know how to change back. She’s been living with a male vampire, Lobo, as his pet of sorts. But Lobo knows there's something special about Tehya. He throws caution to the wind to save her, and to say he's not expecting what happens to happen...weelllll. That's an understatement. I loved the idea of this book. It’s so original. Who is Tehya? How did she change into a wolf and why can’t she change back? Then there’s the mystery of Lobo who isn’t the most welcomed vampire around. I like the twists and turns here, and a few times I had to feel for this guy because seriously...he's got a whole lot on his plate! Tehya is such a delight too. She's very go-with-the-flow, but she's also super protective of Lobo. Enter in some MoonBound Clan members, and we’re in for quite an adventure. Forsaken by Night has everything I look for in paranormal romance--bits of humor, sizzling bouts of chemistry, dashes of adventure and discovery. There's also some treachery afoot hinted at in future books, and I can't wait to see how everything plays out. 5 stars!

** I received a copy via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ** 3.5 STARS! This was an good paranormal read. I haven't read the previous books in this series and it wasn't a hard story to follow. Of course there was mentioned history between some of the characters but that didn't take away from this story, so I think this can be read as a standalone. I enjoyed the characters in this story a lot and the story moved at great pace; it was definitely entertaining. This was a very short read. There were a few surprises within this story and it was definitely steamy, so overall it was a good read.

This was a super fast but enjoyable read. It's best to have read the first two books in this Moonbound Clan series for informational and background purposes, but not if you just want to enjoy Lobo & Tehya's love story. Not your average vampire/ shifter story. Very well done as I have come to find is Larissa Ione's default setting. Very imaginative and creative and yes, sexy. I really liked both Lobo's and Tehya's characters so much and was rooting for them all the way!!

This story has been published in the Blood Red Kiss anthology so do not buy if you own that. I get that publishing is a risky business and recently several traditional publishers are no longer trading which means many authors are getting back the rights to their books and re-releasing which means readers really have to pay attention . Now fortunately I hadn't got around to buying the anthology so to me this short story was completely new. Funnily enough this hadn't been my favourite series by this amazing author but reading this has really made me hope she continues it. It was interesting seeing the other side of the Moonbound Clan Vampires and being able to catch up with the estranged Lobo added a whole new element. He's able to shift into other forms but has no idea the Wolf who has become his companion also has that ability or does she? Tehya isn't the normal run of the mill shifter ( no not at all !) and she's well and truly stuck but with her memory fragmented what is she supposed to do? Fiercely protective of Lobo Tehya will do anything to stay with him but when she's mortally wounded Lobo does the only thing he can to save her , he takes her to the Clan that threw him out. Now that wouldn't be so bad but things start going horribly wrong when Tehya wakes up! This novella was eye opening. I was absolutely not putting it down until I'd finished. I loved the twists, thought the interactions were so funny and it's really got me wondering what could happen next. Yes there are Vampires, yes it has an unusual shifter twist but best of all hope for a much happier future for Lobo and Tehya. Plus the alpha Hunter gets to hunt! A series best read in order and hopefully more to come soon. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair
