Bad Moon Rising by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Can two races overcome the obstacles in their path to lead them to their true hearts desire?

Fang Kattalakis isn't just a wolf. He's the brother of two of the powerful members of the Omegrion, the ruling council that enforces the laws of Were-Hunters. So when the were's start fighting, he has to choose a side. The side of his brother or the his own race. Fang has been keeping his brother's secret for years, and he'll keep it for as long as he has to, even at the expense of his own life.

Aimee Peltier is the only daughter of the Peltier family of bears that owns the bar known as Sanctuary. It's her lot in life to mate with another bear and produce cubs. What her family doesn't know is that Amy has a secret that she has kept since puberty that could endanger her very life if revealed. When Fang and his pack show up at the bar, Aimee is intrigued with him, as she usually finds all wolves distasteful. When he saves her from a pack of jackals, she wants to know him better.

When Fang is seriously injured by his own pack turning on him, he almost dies. His brother takes him to Sanctuary to heal, but Fang doesn't awaken. He's in a netherworld, fighting for his life against hundreds of demons. He begs his brother and Aimee to help him in a dream, but only Aimee responds. She must kill the daimons that have part of his soul if he is to return to himself. Aimee doesn't hesitate, and will jump into hell if she has to to save him. Even though they are two different species, and they know they cannot be together, Fang and Aimee's hearts have other ideas. They both fight it, because if they give in, the world as they know it will change.

BAD MOON RISING: A DARK-HUNTER NOVEL is chock-ful of Kenyon's traits: humor, romance, action, and great world-building. While much of the novel recaps scenarios played out in previous dark-hunter novels, they are important to Fang and Aimee's story. However, the ending climaxes to a shocking conclusion that will have you begging for the next installment. Sherrilyn Kenyon is at the top of her game, and BAD MOON RISING: A DARK-HUNTER NOVEL is like chocolate, sinful, sweet, and oh so good.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
