    1. What can I say this book had the makings of a fantastic story, one that would have kept me an avid fan. The writing, characters, and story line were brilliant, but somewhere along the way it just 'died'. It seems like the author came to a point in her writing and just said "Ok, lets tie up all the loose ends and finish the book" and along with it the characters lost their depth.I'm sorry to say that I've been spoiled with strong, kick-ass heroines lately, and Mackenzie didn't cut it for me.I rea [...]

    3. I'd rather a book just be bad from the start than to tease and entice me before leaving me high and dry. Sampling this book WILL NOT help you determine if you'd like to buy it or not.At FirstStoryline is interesting & suspenseful. I'm enjoying the para plot of the FMC running from a 'stalker' claiming to be a her fated para mate. We begin the story with her on the run. She heads to NOLA and gets a job at a bar. Her new shifter boss is concerned about her skittish behavior and calls in her pa [...]

    4. Mackenzie Brooks is scared. She has been running from her ex-boyfriend, Marcus through five states, and no matter how many times she dumps her car or hides out, his people always seem to track her down. She has ended up in New Orleans, and has taken employment at the local bar, in desperate need of money. While working, she craves normalcy and desperately just wants to fit in. However, she is so scared of the men chasing her and their crazy ideas about magic and other unbelievable things that sh [...]

    5. I was interrupted in the midst of reading this and found it really hard to come back to. I actually persisted another quarter of the book, but found myself wishing I were reading something else. So I did.The thing is, the characters are interesting and I wouldn't have minded spending more time with them. Mackenzie was a little hard to like at first, even though she had my sympathy from the first. Jackson is immediately engaging, though, and I warmed up to Kenzie through him. Their relationship g [...]

    7. 2 1/2 stars. Read this a few days ago and saying I was disappointed is putting it nicely. I've been blowing through the Rogers short stories and ebooks and I had very high hopes for my first full length novel. The premise is excellent and the writing is good but most anything pleasant I have to say ends there. There were too many secondary characters. This confused me and actually left me pretty bored. The story layout was predictable, especially the ending, and I could barely tolerate the sickl [...]

    8. I started this series because I was desperate for a "Kit Rocha" fix while waiting for the next book in the terrific Beyond series. What I found was a whole new wonderful series, the Southern Arcana. Moira Rogers is another pen name for the writing team of Donna Herren and Bree Bridges, and they sure know how to create a fascinating world. I love the Southern Arcana just as much as I do the Sectors. This series is werewolves and other shifters, plus witches and telepaths and empaths and pretty mu [...]

Running out of options she finds herself a job in a bar to try and build up her dwindling savings and although she finds herself wishing she could stay in New Orleans she knows she must be ready to leave at a moments notice. Her new boss Nicole is worried about her, she knows Kenzie is hiding something and fears for her safety so she asks her friend and PI Jackson to inve [...]

    11. (Smuttastic Coven Group Read: August 2012)This book is complicated, not so much in its essence, but more in my reflection. Overall, I liked the book (I think)but holy crap on a cracker, it has some problems. The novel's plot was pretty cut-and-paste of most standard fiction tropes; crazy powerful bad guy hunting down the innocent heroine. The antagonist of the story, ironically, shared a lot in common with the protagonistsShocking, right? This statement finds itself more along the lines of Autho [...]

    12. It's getting to the point where the creative minds behind Moira Rogers' stories could write ads for the phone book and I'd not only preorder the damn thing, but salivate all over it once it arrived. Crux is another fun, engrossing offering from this dynamic duo that doesn't disappoint.One of the things that most books that I really enjoy have in common is a really thoroughly detailed, really believable world that serves as the setting, with rules that make sense and are "enforced" consistently.

    13. I have been in a reading "funk" lately. Almost everything I have been reading is just "O.K." So, when I read the description for Crux, I thought I might have stumbled upon a new series with the promise of truly being good. Unfortunately, it did not deliver for me. Don't get me wrong, I liked it, I just did not love it. Mackenzie Brooks has been on the run for over a month from an insane stalker, Marcus who believes she is destined to be his wife and the mother of many supernaturally gifted babie [...]

    14. I'm really impressed with Moira Rogers so far. I really enjoyed the world and the two main characters, along with all the secondary characters. Mackenzie was thrown into a new world it was hard for her to accept. Giving her several months of "wondering" if what she'd heard was true made her adjustment once she found out the real truth much easier to take. Although she got hit with an information overload, I think she dealt with it well.Jackson was a sweet good-ole-boy. I really liked him and the [...]

    15. free on kindle right now THIS IS FREE******It was a good book. McKenzie didn't know she was a shifter just knew she was running from a mad man. A man who wanted to breed her for what he thought was the greater good. She wound up in NOLA, meeting a Mage named Jackson. A wild named Alec, another named Nick. Her whole world turned upside down. It's a good little paranormal romance, it was suspenseful and of course love. It made me tear at the end and I do recommend it. Happy reading folks and happy [...]

    16. I loved Ms. Rogers’ Sanctuary series and I knew I’d love this new series. I just didn’t know how much. I absolutely adored the world-building (who would’ve thought—shapeshifters, witches, spell-casters, psychicsbut no vampires), and the initial cast of characters, who I have on good authority will continue appearing in future books, made me literally itch for more.Wonderful pacing, great plot and suspense, amazing characters (the heroine didn’t annoy me, the hero made me drool, their [...]

    19. This was a decent read Was I blown away by it. not at all. A solid three stars and desire to read the next book. The GOOD:The world that Moira Rogers creates is really interesting. You have shifters, magic users, magic using shifters, and persons with mental abilities (empaths, seers, etc.). The story is also based in New Orlwans how can you go wrong there? I liked MacKenzie (our heroine) and Jackson (our hero). A sign that i like a book is the fact that I root for my couple. If I feel indiffere [...]

    20. In Crux we meet Mackenzie Brooks who has been on the run for months from a crazy stalker that seems to find her no matter where she goes and is willing to go to any extreme to get her. After months of running, she ends up in New Orleans working at Mahalia's which is run by Nicole Peyton, a shapeshifter that comes from a world Mac knows nothing about. Nick enlists her friend Jackson Holt, a private investigator and spell caster, to find out more about Mac and to possibly help her out. Jackson get [...]

    21. This was a group read or I might not have chosen it. It's PNR, and I've been moving away from that. This was very interesting, though. I thought it was interesting that there was this underground shifter/witch/magic-users society, but they didn't think vampires existed. Makes me wonder if they're going to pop up in a future installment of the series.I can't imagine growing up thinking you're human and then this gorgeous guy shows up on your doorstep talking to you about shifters and destiny and [...]

    22. I had heard a lot about this series and author on twitter and I just to check it out. I am so glad I did. The Southern Arcana series has become entered my radar and are simply an automatic buy for me right now. She is on the run from a man that claims that they are meant to be together. He is also a shifter and they are supposed to be destined for each other and save their race from extinction. Mackenzie is a shifter that doesn’t know she is a shifter. She has all this power within her that sh [...]

    23. My thoughts:I have heard good things about these books so I wanted to give them a go. As for the genre, I am a bit unsure again because it felt like a mix.Mackenize was a nice heroine, she is running from a crazy stalker who talks about magic and shapeshifting. She is strong, and resourceful. The hero of the book is Jackson Holt, a private investigator who helps her out. And Jack is all nice and sweet. Him I certainly liked. There is a nice romance building up between them too, and some hot pass [...]

    24. Mackenzie has been on the run for the past month from a stalker, intent on kidnapping her to fulfill some crazy-sounding destiny. So far he’s chased her through 4 cities. Now in New Orleans working in a bar, this place and the people she’s met feels like it could be home and she’s forced to accept that the crazy stuff her stalker talked about--shifters, witches and magic-- is real. And for Mackenzie it’s instant lust when her eyes fall on Jackson, a private investigator who is best frien [...]

    25. This book had it all. Shifter's and magic users and I am sure Vampires just might make an appearance farther in the series. I loved Jackson. Who doesn't love a private investigator that can take on most people because he is a bad*ss with magic abilities. Let's not forget his partner in crime, Alec. If he has a story I am sure it will be a hot one. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. If you are looking for a great, easy read in the Paranormal Romance area give this one a [...]

    26. 3.5 StarsWell this wasn't my favorite book by Moira Rogers, I did enjoy the chemistry between Jackson and Mackenzie. At times I thought the action was a little slow, but overall it was a good book that inc. many aspects of the paranormal world.

    27. Quick read with engaging characters. I liked Makenzie and Jackson, and the secondary, but still prominent other characters. the climax was a bit rushed, and could have been drawn out a bit better. good UF story, lighter on the romance, if you are so inclined. Steamy enough when it happens tho ;)
