First Born Blog Stop & Giveaway

When twenty-six-year-old graphic designer Lily Moore shapeshifts for the first time, Atlanta police detectives consult wildlife experts to sort through the bizarre forensic evidence she leaves in her wake. Her traumatic transformation coincides with murder and Lily finds herself the center of a mad vortex of area crimes.

On the run, Lily turns to her younger brother to help unravel the secrets surrounding her boyfriend’s death as well as unlock the mysteries of their Chinese heritage. When a loved one goes missing, Lily finds herself scrambling to find purchase in this new world where there hasn’t been balance for a century.

As she learns to master her new preternatural abilities, she must cut through the lies of those around her. With the police and a killer hot on her trail, can she solve the mystery of being First Born or will family secrets prove deadly?

My Review:

WOW, WOW, WOW talk about suspense!!! I love a good page turner, especially when there are shape shifters involved, and Ms. Zoeller did NOT disappoint!!

When attacked by her not so gentlemanly date, Lily Moore shape shifts for the very first time in her life causing her to lash out and fight back. She flees the scene of the crime and in doing so builds the suspicion against her. In her new form she's taken in by a coworker who has no idea what or who she really is. Trying to stay out of the public eye and investigate hidden family secrets, as well as solve multiple murders, proves to be a bit difficult for Lily but she actually manages to succeed for a little while. That is until the bad guys catch up with her as they always do.

I'm always intrigued by the different paranormal worlds out there, getting each authors perspective & "living" in their world for a bit is simply amazing. I'm just in awe of the amount of creativity put into these types of novels. Maybe that's why this is my favorite genre ever!! Ms. Zoeller did a great job of pulling me into the story from the first couple of pages. The story moved along swiftly, yet gave great detail to the Chinese heritage of our main characters, Lily and Seth. It was equal parts action, humorous, dramatic and suspenseful. Basically this novel had many of the qualities I look for in a good book!! The writing was great and pretty much typo-free (which I LOVE and appreciate greatly). I really enjoyed First Born and would definitely recommend it to readers of paranormal mysteries/suspense.
