Bad Moon Rising

Bad Moon Rising is the latest book in the Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. From the inside cover.~

A stunning and suspenseful new landscape emerges in the thrilling Dark-Hunter world-a world where nothing will ever be the same again…

Fang Kattalakis isn’t just a wolf. He is the brother of two of the most powerful members of the Omegrion, the ruling council that enforces the laws of the Were-Hunters, and when war erupts among the lycanthropes, sides must be chosen. Enemies are forced into shaky alliances. And when the woman Fang loves is accused of betraying her people, her only hope is that Fang believes in her. Yet in order to save her, Fang must break the law of his people and the faith of his brothers. That breech could very well spell the end of both their races and change their world forever.

The war is on and time is running out…

I really enjoyed Bad Moon Rising. I had been waiting for Fang and Aimee’s story from the moment they met. There is some re-telling from other books in the series, but I felt it worked since the re-telling was from either Fang’s or Aimee’s point of view. We also get to see the romance between Fang and Aimee from the very beginning. Since Fang is a wolf and Aimee is a bear, there is a little problem with them falling in love. They fight their attraction as long as possible, but eventually give in to their desires.

Between the romance of Fang and Aimee and the many cameo appearances from the various Dark-Hunters, especially Acheron who is my favorite, Bad Moon Rising is another winner in my book. Both One Silent Night and Bad Moon Rising give foreshadowing to a change in the war between the Dark-Hunters and the Daimon. I look forward to direction future books will take.
