I received a free digital copy from The Wild Rose Press in exchange for an honest review I really enjoyed this book and I thought it had a great storyline that's different to any other I have read and I cannot wait to read more about Morgan and Jackson as I feel there is something more between them and I'm excited to see where their relationship heads. However I feel that the book took a little too long to get into but once the adventure started I was hooked and couldn't put the book down.
Morgan Daniel and her younger brother have been in witness protection after witnessing a gang murder but are now on the run as they have been found by the gang. Heading into the mountains they turn their car down a steep hill in hopes to survive the gang’s shooting at them and disappear into the woods. After crashing and trying to hide they see a wolf in the forest and next they know the wolves are attacking the pursuing gang. After the gang is chased off a young man comes to the rescue and proceeds to bring Morgan and her brother back to a huge secret lodge in the forest. There they find out there is a whole world out there that they didn’t know existed and they are a huge part of. The Hunter’s Moon is the beginning to a young adult series that involved werewolves, shifters, and a world of legends and curses. It definitely had an intriguing mix of different things involved that grabbed my attention and had me wanting to know where this was going to lead. The book however does end on a cliffhanger with a lot unresolved which is somewhat a let down but with such a short novella it certainly packed a lot into the first installment. Overall, a fun start to the series, would definitely pick up the next to see what happens. I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
YA werewolf romance. The typical YA formula works for Trissel; teenage girl (Morgan) suddenly thrust into the secret life she didn’t know she was already part of. Along the way she is helped by her brother, and Jackson, fellow werewolf and love interest, and his family. The pacing was a bit fast and the ending seemed abrupt, but all in all a fun and quick read.
I would like to thank author Beth Trissel & The Wild Rose Press for allowing me to read The Hunter's Moon for an honest review. While I enjoyed The Hunters Moon, I found myself stopping a coming back to the book. Which is unusual for me as I like to read in one sitting. I found the storyline to be well written but the characters didn't really grip my attention. Seventeen-year-old Morgan Daniel has been under witness protection since she was a child. In grave danger, she seeks solace in the forest but what she wasn't expecting was her life to take an even more dramatic turn. Suddenly Morgan and her little brother discover all is not as it seems with the world. They enter a whole new world with supernatural beings. The hunters moon is a young adult novel filled with suspense. The storyline is different and enjoyable, I just wished I clicked with the character's.
Title: The Hunter’s Moon Series: Secret Warrior Series Book #1 Author: Beth Trissel Genre: Romance, Paranormal, Young Adult Blurb: Seventeen-year-old Morgan Daniel has been in the witness protection program most of her life. But The Panteras have caught up with her and her younger brother. Her car is totaled, she's hurt, and the street gang is closing in when wolves with glowing eyes appear out of nowhere and chase away the killers. takes them to safety at his fortress-like home. And that's just the first sign that Morgan and her brother have entered a hidden world filled with secrets... Thoughts: This is a YA book that I thought I would give a try. Usually for me it is kind of touch and go on whether I like a particular YA novel. This one is one of those odd ones that have Young Adult teenager-ish characters that function in a adult-like manner, yet manage to have a maturity level that just is not caught up with their functioning level or storyline. We have a seventeen year old dealing with mob-like characters and in witness protection….and I just couldn’t buy it. The story is told well, and I liked the author’s style of writing. I just couldn’t fathom a seventeen year old dealing with these very adult like problems and situations yet still being that immature, while also acting in a parental role. Likeable YA…but not one for me that crosses over into adult reading as well. Rate: B-
Morgan and her younger brother are in witness protection after seeing a murder, making them the next targets. While trying to escape after being found by the murder, Morgan ends up driving over a cliff. What waits at the bottom of the mountain is something that Morgan could never have prepared for. This review will be short and to the point because it makes me feel bad to give a bad review. To be honest, I did not really like or follow this book at all. I love books about werewolves, I LOVE Native American anything, and I also enjoy suspense stories with a murder plot and survival. Mix them all together, and you would think that it would be the most perfect story for me, but unfortunately it was not. I really just could not get into the story and the characters felt very flat to me. I am sure that others will really enjoy the book, but it was not for me even a little bit, which bummed me out because I was excited when the story first began. But then the book went downhill (figuratively in my opinion) when Morgan went down the hill... My favorite part was that the book was short at only 120 pages. So anyway, this was not for me and I will not be reading more in the series. I received this title in return for my honest review.
