Win a Copy of Moira Rogers’ Book Crux

January 25, 2011 by  

True Blood won’t be airing new episodes until this summer, and waiting for Season 4 is quite difficult for most fans. My alternative (besides chatting with fellow fans here on TrueBloodNet.com) has been to turn to books to make the wait less painful. However, I can only go so far with vampires. Sometimes I prefer to read about were-creatures and shapeshifters. One writer with several shapeshifting characters in her books that I read all the time is Moira Rogers.

Technically, Moira is composed of two women, Bree and Donna. They’re brilliant, incredibly funny, and very witty. And yes, all of these traits show up consistently in their books. Take, for example, Crux, which is the first book from their Southern Arcana series.

Crux is the story of Jackson Holt and Mackenzie Brooks, a private investigator and a woman who is running scared. But of course, nothing is as simple as that. Mackenzie is on the run from a stalker, and lucks into getting a job with a friend of Jackson’s. That friend actually instigates the beginning of Jackson and Mackenzie’s relationship.

From there, love, lust, and craziness ensue as Jackson and Mackenzie try to stay a step ahead of the stalker while Mackenzie learns about being a shapeshifter and finds out why she’s being pursued.

I really don’t want to go into too much detail, but this is a fantastic book, and if you love True Blood, you’ll enjoy Crux too.

  • Some of the advantages of being a shifter include the ability to experience the natural world with heightened senses, experience insights into other animals that humans can never experience, and experience joy in the simple acts of running, flying, swimming, feeding, procreating, and surviving, etc. unencumbered by human politics, manners, and niceties.

    Disadvantages of being a shifter include the inability to talk or communicate intangible ideas across species, the neccessities of having to change on the full moon whether you want to or not, and limitations on humans you can trust with your secret.

    These advantages and disadvantages of/for shifters cause me to feel both admiration for their abilities and sorrow for their limitations.

    One advantage of being a shifter is being able to take a break from the world of humans for a little while and take a walk on the true wild side. A disadvantage would be having to step foot into unfamiliar territory, assuming you shifted into something you were not too familiar with and having a new set of troubles to worry about. With that being said, being a shifter would be amazing, but it seems like it would be pretty difficult and not just a walk in the park. You’d be left to a whole new set of rules where only nature has control.

  • hmm i think the HUGE benefit would be to experience life in a multitude of different ways different species, different sex, different skin tone…. Anything is up for grabs…. conversely i think that is also the disadvantage. Unless you are impressively mentally resilient it could lead to mental issues.. particularly if you stay as one particular thing for long periods of time…

  • Advantages: To be any animal you want.

    Disadvantages: If you choose a rare animal, dealing with the black market poachers.

    I already love shifters and am kinda jealous, so I don’t think being one would change my view of them that much.

  • Jenna McCoy

    Advantages: change into anything, making you extremely adaptable to whatever environment you are in, ability to see or experience things in a whole different way

    Disadvantages: could possibly create trust issues with those you care about.

    I think it would be a pain to be a shifter in a lot of ways. Especially if you were dating. What if you forgot what shape you were in when you met that amazing guy?

  • Advantages: The ability to experience the world as more then one species, as well as the physical strength, heightened senses, and amazing abilities such as flying that come from these experiences.
    Disadvantages: The mortal mistake of picking the “wrong” animal to shift into during hunting season.

  • Advantages: I can be any animal I want to be.

    Disadvantages: I would have to pee outside.
