Blurb/Summary:Fugitive shifter, Aria Legreve, is always on the run. With her own life at risk, she helps a badly beaten shifter to his Pack, knowing the danger her meddling entails. Hoping to use her status as an Outcast and be set free, her world changes when she meets head on with no other than her Mate—who is dead. Alpha Lukas MacLeod has been searching for his wife for the past year, until Aria walks straight into his lair. Fate intervenes and gives them a second chance. Caught up in an intricate web of lies and prophecies in the making for generations, Aria and Lukas must discover a way to balance the darkness in their world, but will their love be strong enough to save their pack and each other?
Talk about a riveting book. Blood Moon took me on an emotional ride. My heart went out to Aria in her pain and anguish over losing a mate only to find out he wasn’t lost. Her strength amazed me not only by her want to protect, but her drive to not be a victim ever again. I loved how well she fit in with the pack although she teetered on wanting to flee.
Lukas brought out the heavy sighs. He’d taken so well to his loss and built up the pack diving into responsibility for others, yet when paths crossed it seemed as if time had melted away and all he saw was his mate, not the social issues or the sociopath determined to destroy them both. The villain truly repulsed me and the set up for his attacks didn’t deter the pack from standing next to their Alpha and his mate. I thoroughly enjoyed the dynamics of the pack and the clear social order that was portrayed.
Cern was a pleasure to meet and to try to understand, though I don’t fully understand him, he’s got my interest now! I certainly hope this is the first book of a series I can dive into. I’m interested in reading stories about the other pack members. Heck I’d even enjoy seeing Tessa with a mate, bet it would do her some justice. I have no doubt I’ll enjoy each one to follow to the fullest, if this read is one to judge by.
