Claimed by the King (Shifters of Black Isle, #1)
Abandoned by her people, a young woman was being sent to her doom. Kelly was going to be a prisoner; a slave. At least that’s what she thought as she waited for the mysterious giants that lived on the Black Isles to claim her. A human sacrifice, once every eight years. That’s what it took to keep mankind safe from these savages.The human would ensure the survival of his bloodline. Whether he liked it or not.Broc’s reign as King of the Black Isles had lasted seven years already. That was a long time to go without a queen and therefore, an heir. He knew what he had to do; to claim the human offering and make her his own. When they met, it changed everything. A glimmer of hope, even of love, in unexpected places. But life on the Black Isles was far from simple. And there were powerful secrets, yet to be uncovered, that could change everything yet again.Claimed by the King is the first in Lorelei Moone's brand new fantasy romance series, Shifters of Black Isle. Shifters, magic and relatable characters; set in a mysterious, distant land, where anything seems possible, and yet all its inhabitants hold dear could be destroyed in an instant.

    So I am a pretty big paranormal fan. And I do enjoy many different authors that write in the genre but for some reason, this one just didn't do it for me. I didn't feel the connection between the characters. I wanted to really like it. But it was just meh. I probably won't read the next book in the series.

None shall attempt to lay eyes on or follow the giants. 3. No girl shall ever come home, or her village shall feel the giants’ wrath.

Kelly was going to be a prisoner; a slave. At least that’s what she thought as she waited for the mysterious giants that lived on the Black Isles to claim her. A human sacrifice, once every eight years. That’s what it took to keep mankind safe from these savages.This story gripped me from the first page, I read it in one sitting, beautifully written and well drawn out. It is a clean romance which for me took it down from 5 to 4, I like my books with a bit of passion and while it was in there it seemed very discreet more like the old fashioned way of portraying the sexy times in books, I like my sexy times and as this is a shifter book I thought there would be plenty. It did not detract from the story at all, original concept and flowed beautifully. I loved Kelly wasn't so sure of Broc at first but I grow to love him. this is the first book of the series so I am looking forward to reading the next in line. another niggle which took it down to 4 was the abrupt way it finished. I wanted more on the couple and it was rushed a little at the end. I will not say to much about the plot, except we have mermaids, wolves, bears , eagles and witches. The tale is wonderful. This is a first time read from this author it will not be my last. I was given this as an ARC, for an honest review as I am new to the actual ARC's I did take my time I still read it in a couple of hours but I savored the book which helped with the enjoyment as well. Hats of to you Lorelei Moone if this is your first. you have a new fan.I loved it

That seems like a huge risk, but when you are thinking about your father and brother potentially falling victim to giants, what more can you do? Moone has a fast-paced, entertaining story with Claimed by the King.Broc Bearclaw is the ruler of the Black Isles and he must take in as many outsiders as possible in order to allow his people to thrive and survive against the oncoming war with the sea people. His people are also pressuring him to take a wife and produce an heir. When Broc sees Kelly for the first time on that wooden post, a sacrifice to his people until the next eight years, he is enraptured by her beauty and immediately feels connected to her. He wants passion. He wants to protect her. But, his people suggest that an oncoming threat is looming over the Black Isles and they can't help believing that Kelly has something to hide which can be a danger to them all.Moone has a quick read with this first installment. The novella is filled with a great backstory and terrific character development; however, the romance is a very fast-paced. The author is assuming the characters have an instant draw to each other based on lore of finding ones soulmate. The story is written well and easy to read. If you are a reader of paranormal romance, you may want to try this one. Since this is the first installment, the reader can jump right in.This book was downloaded by Turning Another Page from Book Funnel and in no way affects the honesty of this review. We provide a four-star rating for Claimed by the King by Lorelei Moone.

Can't say that you've seen much of that in a book before, but I definitely wanted to know more history about that. The story definitely could have used a lot of more about just everything, so even if it didn't quite work for me, it could for someone else. It wasn't too bad of a start for this series, it seems like so much more about this world will be revealed with the books to come.

I liked how it wasn't just a one-animal shifter novel but a collective of animals; bears, wolves, owl, witch, etc. A female sacrifice on the verge of life and death alleged to folklore, however she ends up with more than she bargained for. I only wished there was more lust, more connection between Broc and Kelly. The chemistry was on the surface but it could have gone deeper. I, as the reader, wanted more passion, more fire than what we were given. As well, the ending was abrupt and I felt the relationship between Kelly and Rhea was unfinished. I understand there are more books approaching soon and I am hoping that my questions will all be answered. Even though my rating is mediocre I will be reading the rest as the book was well written and I am interested to see what happens to the 'other' prisoner in the dungeon. **ARC provided for an honest review**

Hopefully further books in this series will correct this, but I'm looking forward to continuing the story.

Being honest I had moments where I wanted to scream at certain characters but overall I enjoyed this read.

    This book was very good. This is about Kelly, who was to be sacrificed by her clan to the mysterious giants that resided on an island not far from the mainland. The giants are really Bear Shifters and they keep the peace between them and the mainland by demanding a sacrifice every 8 years. They need new blood brought into their clan and this was the only way they could think to get it.

    Title: Claimed by the KingAuthor: Lorelei MoonePublication Date: 7-20-2018I really enjoy PNR whether it’s a fluff piece or an elaborate world created by the author. The premise for this world is the treaty between the coastal regions and the Giant Warriors, wherein the Giants are given a peace offering by way of a woman once every eight years. Good pace, interesting storyline and likable characters.

This book is about Broc and Kelly. It is so completely well written and thought through. Now, Broc must step up his game and take a queen. He has his sight set on Kelly.

    This book makes me so excited for this new series. I’m a long-time fan of Ms Moone & Claimed by the King holds true to her skills as a world-builder. The characters are colourful & charismatic. I loved the story- Kelly thought she was going to be a slave but things didn’t go the way she expected. I thoroughly enjoyed the development of the relationship between her & Broc although things don’t go smoothly for them which makes for an exciting and engaging read.

    Great start to a new series! Kelly was a fantastic character and so was Broc. Kelly was chosen as a sacrifice at the very beginning and ends up on an island of shifters. Lots of fun as the story progressed and the secondary characters were also well developed. This was a fun and a fast read that kept my interest and I am now looking forward to reading the next book. I am voluntarily reviewing an arc I received

    Cliffhanger..This was a great start to this series, it kept me hanging onto every page.. love , power struggles and a clan that need to survive . Shifters and magic. I just didnt realise it left it on a cliffhanger..that was dissapointing...if the next book is going to as short..then l would be expecting another cliffhanger..l would prefer it all in one book.

    Could Have Been Great The start of the book was very dramatic and creative but the ending was so flat. I was expecting more drama and action, a bit of a battle within the clan but it was disappointing with a quick ending. This book can be a standalone but each book deals with a different couple to continue the storyline.

    Good Fantasy!While this is a short novel, the first in a series, it was good while it lasted. The world created by the author was quite complex and interesting. I wish she had written a lengthy novel as I would enjoyed the novel completely. But I will not pay $2.99 for each of the segments of the story!
