How to Wish Upon a Star by Eli Easton


Dr. Jason Kunik is working on the most earth-shattering genetics project ever, DNA mapping of a new species, the quickened—dogs who can shift into human form. The problem is, no one knows the quickened exist and Jason can’t betray them by publishing his studies. When he moves to Mad Creek to continue his research in a town full of quickened, all he wants is peace, quiet, and to be allowed to bury himself in his work. Perhaps if he figures how out the mutation is activated, he can silence his own inner dog forever.

Milo is a hospice comfort dog who has bonded with, and lost, many beloved patients in his life. He intuitively understands sickness and pain on a spiritual level most can’t see. When he gains the ability to become a man, he thinks he finally has everything he ever wanted. But being a man isn’t the same thing as being loved, and taking shelter in Mad Creek isn’t the same thing as finding a home.

When a mysterious illness hits Mad Creek and threatens all the quickened in town, it’s up to the scientist and the comfort dog to figure out what it is and how to stop it. Along the way they might discover that true love is possible—if you wish upon a star.

This is the third book in the Howl at the Moon series, but it can be read as a standalone.

This is the most exciting book in the series so far. As Jason uses his academic skills to stop a dangerous virus spreading through Mad Creek, he finds himself increasingly attracted to his new roommate, Milo, who is young and newly quickened.

I’m still having issues with the whole quickened concept but I did enjoy the action in this story. Nothing about the story is plausible and I shudder to think what an actual scientist or doctor would make of Jason’s scientific interventions – but this was a fun read.

The romance between Jason and Milo really didn’t work for me. Milo is only months away from being a dog and he feels very, very young – and doglike. Jason is a singularly focused scientist without any people skills, and I didn’t quite get the connection between them.

We see more of the couples from earlier books in this series and I enjoyed seeing the life Lance and Tim have made for themselves. I liked the race against time element of this story, and I like the road trip the men take while trying for a vaccination. I’m still not a fan of the slightly wooden characters and often stilted dialogue.
