Book Description


Zola spent years traveling the world, studying with supernatural martial-arts masters. Now, as the only lion shifter in New Orleans, she enjoys freedom from politics as well as success in running her own business—self-defense training for psychics, spell casters and other shifters.

Only one man knows why she left home at nineteen—Walker Gravois. He was there when her Seer mother, her mind twisted by magic, exiled Zola from the pride. More to the point, he stayed behind, shattering her young heart in the process.

When he appears on her doorstep after ten years of silence, Zola is nowhere near ready to trust again. But with Walker's life in danger—and the passion between them burning hotter than ever—she’ll have to choose between the safety of solitude and the risk of opening herself to others once again.

Length: 35 Pages/12,000 words
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Southern Arcana #2.5
Set between Crossroads & Deadlock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Southern Arcana book 2.5 8 Sept. 2011
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
Zola's Pride is a short story in Moira Rogers' Southern Arcana series set between books 2 & 3. The story was originally published in The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance 2 but is now also available as a free download on Moira Rogers' website. Although set after book 2 in the SA series I don't think it would give any spoilers so you could read it as an introduction to the author's work.

It's hard to mention the plot of a short story because it is easy to give too much away so I'll just tell you that the 2 main characters, Zola and Walker, are both lion shifters who used to belong to the same pride. When Zola was forced to leave she was devastated that Walker didn't go with her but he had very good reasons not to. Now ten years on they meet again & Walker has a lot of explaining to do.

With short stories there obviously isn't as much time to get to know the characters as well as you would in a full length novel but I still liked them both. Zola's Pride is a great quick read containing romance and a little bit of action & I really enjoyed it. I'm sure fans of the SA series will like the story & as I've already mentioned it would be a good way to try a new author if you haven't read anything by Moira Rogers before. Don't expect the plot to be as detailed as it would be in one of the SA novels but I appreciate the fact that Bree & Donna (the 2 ladies behind the name Moira Rogers) offer free reads to their fans to keep us going between their releases.

Now I'm just looking forward to getting started on Deadlock!

3.0 out of 5 stars A "Southern Arcana" series novella 3 April 2012
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Zora has changed from the young lion shape shifter left broken hearted when the man she loved failed to follow her into exile from her mother's Pride. 9 years later this same man Walker is now back in her life and quickly rousing feelings Zora thought had died.

Walker is determined to obtain Zora's help in protecting what remains of his small Pride, yet trying to protect Zora from not only his enemies, but also the truth surrounding her exile proves difficult.

I've not read the 2 full length novels available set before this short story ("Crux" and "Crossroads") but after reading "Zora's Pride" I'll certainly check them out. "Zora's Pride" is an adequate stand-alone read; however this novella is a very short taster that leaves the world building somewhat vague. I liked the ideas introduced; possibly a little too much, as I am left disappointed that the magical environment wasn't explored in any great detail. Supernatural creatures are casually mentioned, but the emphasis is definitely on the relationship between Zora and Walker (rightly so as this is a romance some might say) whilst I would have preferred more interaction with other characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Short Story 17 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Zola's Pride by Moira Rogers is a great short read for those who like small quick books. In fact, I feel it was too short. The short story seemed to pull me in from the beginning although it seems to leave out a lot of information I would have loved to know. The plot seemed to be well thought out as was the characters.

With a touch of romance and a bit of action, I give this book four **** stars. I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it and I look forward to reading more of Moira Rogers work. I must say this author is talented and her work is intriguing.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK but very short 19 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Overall, it's OK. Obviously with very short books, the author cannot go into to much detail, but I have to say, given the length Moira Rogers did a good job. Basically, Zola is driven from her pride (family) by her mother at a fairly young age. She is alone, the man who she loves, did not follow. Now years later, he turns up, asking for help. My mother is now dead and the pride is suffering due to her mother's mad and extreme ways. Can or will Zola help? Has their love survived? Why didn't he follow? Read and find out.....

Zola and Walker represent my first dip into the pool that is Moira Rogers' imagination. I wasn't disappointed. This book is well written and enticing in its content. I was drawn from page to page, continually needing to know what happened next.

The only negative was the urge I had to immediately begin downloading other Moira Rogers novels - Phenomenal!
