Killing Moon (Moon Book 7)
First published: December 30th 2001Rating: 7.34 stars
I’ve been reading a lot of fantasy lately, paranormal, witches, werewolves, vampires. This was definitely one of the better books in that genre. Ross is a werewolf. Megan is a human. It is pretty well telegraphed from the beginning that the two are going to fall in love, but the rest of the book is getting them there without much emphasis on the actual falling in love part. I mean that this isn’t a romance book. There is a little romance, a little sex, but it’s very understated. There are only two sex scenes and they are short. The real meat of this book is in the mystery that brings them together. A man is abducting and killing women after torturing them for days. Ross is a PI and he was hired to find one of the victims. As a werewolf, he has heightened senses which makes his PI work easier but can get him in trouble with the cops he’s working with.I took a while finishing this book because I had to stop reading a few times as I was worried what these characters were going to get themselves into. Not everything I worried about happened, or happened in the way I worried, which was definitely a plus. The story moves relatively quickly, the characters aren’t overly stupid about their falling in love (which is a complaint I’ve had about a lot of love stories recently), and the ending is very satisfying. The world is ours, so the world building isn’t all that thorough, but it doesn’t have to be as it’s very clear from the beginning that this takes place in the United States in the 21st century. But there aren’t so many details that it won’t hold up in 10 years as well. Highly recommended.

Eternal Moon (Moon Book 9)
First published: April 6th 2009Rating: 7.76 stars
I liked this book to a point. It was written in typical Rebecca York fashion with fairly good characters and some sexy scenes, but I wasn’t pulled in like I was in the beginning of this series. She has taken it a bit far afield for me. It was okay. I read it quickly, but I am not sure I will read another one.
Dragon Moon (Moon Book 10)
First published: October 5th 2009Rating: 7.72 stars
I was enjoying this book, right up until the author forgot to transition between the location she’d taken the characters to and their home base. I was totally thrown out of the story, flipped back and forth rereading pages, trying to figure out what I’d missed. That cost the author a lot. This book could have so much better.
