    More, MORE!!!

    What a GREAT ride! Alisa Sheckley has an amazing touch--Moonburn delves boldly into the paranormal but with a savvy sense of humor that is not often found in this genre. These aren't comic book characters--their surprising complexities, secrets, and flaws (whether likeable or not) get entagled in lust and love in an all too-human fashion as the chapters fly by. A great story in a surreal setting that kept me up reading way too late. The frequent twists and turns were pure fun and left me astonished at the author's creativity. Moonburn dives into the unusual with glee--and wait till you 'meet' the sheriff...More Ms. Sheckley, MORE!

    Werewolf genre fans are in good hands.

    Abra Barrow is adjusting to life in the small town of Northside. The story picks up with Abra working with her mentor working in a veterinarian clinic trying to deal with her lycan infection, and trying to avoid her ex-husband.

    There are allot of new characters that are introduced in Moonburn, but the secondary characters introduced in The Better To Hold You get fleshed out very well.

    The second book doesn't miss a beat, and the science aspect of lycans is handled very well. The characters of Red and Abra have really grown on me over the two books. I hope the author gets to continue the adventures of these two for sometime to come.

    fast-paced exciting werewolf thriller

    After what happened with her cheating husband in Manhattan last year (see THE BETTER TO HOLD YOU), veterinarian Abra Barrow relocates to Northside so that she can study the lycan infection he brought back from Romania and gave to her. She understands the problem of leaving a smog urban center for the pristine small-town air is that a full moon is a full moon for three days of uncontrolled behavior by a werewolf.

    However, just as she has become comfortable with herself; Abra becomes emotional even with a full sun shining. She easily turns angry and shockingly drops her scores of inhibitions at any time of day or night; a behavior she only previously did when the moon is full. The local male population is all enthralled with her except her boyfriend shape-shifting expert Red Mallin, who knows what is happening to her, but is too busy to help her as he is totally focused on weird beasts apparently crossing the dimensional divide. Having been bitten last year by someone she trusted and now unable to rely on even herself; Abra feels fearful and doubtful amplified by her out of control emotions. Making matters stranger for her is a creature from the other side showing her an entirely different realm.

    The second Barrow werewolf thriller is a fast-paced exciting tale in which Alisa Sheckley makes her magical world seems genuine starting with the lycan infection. The story line fast-paced starring a terrific heroine who feels her grip is slipping. Readers will enjoy her escapades as Abra struggles to regain her equilibrium while Red is preoccupied. MOON BURN is an enjoyable small-town fantasy.
