Review: Hunter’s Moon – Lisa Kessler
On the run from the Nero Organization, Sasha isn’t sure as to where she’ll go. Nor does she know as to how she’ll live her life now. There was a time when she believed she had a purpose, that she was doing some good her life. That all changed from the moment she was bitten, and transformed into a jaguar assassin. In a sense, she should count her lucky stars that she’s still alive, and able to try to make something of herself. Yet she can’t quite come to terms with the fact that her life has truly changed in more ways than one.
Forced to confront the circumstances that have landed her in the tight spot she now finds herself in, Sasha soon realizes that there’s no way she can outrun her past. The Nero Organization is determined in bringing her in, something she cannot allow. She knows too much, and must be silenced by any means necessary.
Things soon take a different turn when Sasha meets Aren, the sexy werewolf shifter, who’d saved her life not too long ago. Deep inside, she wants nothing more than to forget about him, and what he’s done for her. Yet she knows that’s not likely. He’s done more for her than anyone else ever has, a fact she can no longer deny.
Everything about him draws her to him. Sasha knows she should stay away from him. He’s gorgeous, deadly, and far out of her league. Common sense tells her that she should walk away from him. To forget about the way he makes her feel. Yet when her life and that of her sister are threatened, she knows that staying away from Aren isn’t something she can actually do. He’s her only link to doing away with the Nero Organization, once and for all. If they’re to succeed in bringing them down, she’ll need let go of her insecurities, and put her trust in his hands.
Hunter’s Moon is one of those story’s that draws you in, and makes you want to keep reading by the time you get to the very end. I absolutely enjoy shape-shifter stories, and I think Lisa has penned a series that certainly captures the reader’s interest. Granted, I started the Moon series with this second book, but you can bet that I’ll be catching up with book one soon enough. There are twists and turns galore in this book that will leave you wanting to know more. The heat ratio doesn’t disappoint either. I enjoyed the story very much, and can’t wait to see what Lisa has planned next for the series itself.
