Residents of Duivel, Missouri know to avoid the dangerous Barrows District. That mostly barren area except for malevolent human and inhuman beasts serves as a magical prison created by the Earth Mother to contain the evil Darkness.

Huntress Cassandra Archer is a field agent of the Earth Mother. She rescues children from the evils that dwell in the caverns of the Barrows. Duivel Police Detective Flynn and mob boss Carlos Dacardi do not believe in magic, Earth mother, or the Darkness. However, the cop's thirteen year old sister Selene and the gangster's thirteen years old son Richard have been abducted from the Mall and take into the Barrows. Although each has plenty of firepower to raid the Barrows, only the Huntress can save their young relatives; she knows the stake is much greater as a sacrificial ritual under a Viper Moon could destroy Duivel.

The opening act of the Dark Huntress small town fantasy is a terrific dark thriller that establishes the Roland realm as a place to be for sub-genre fans. Even before the reader accompanies Cass into The Barrows, the story line sets the darkness of this zone as Tweeners are abducted by some nasty not all human monsters. The story line is action-packed from the moment Flynn and then Carlos plead with the Huntress to rescue their kin although her mission proves even more significant than saving two youngsters. With a touch of romance kept mostly in the background, Viper Moon is a winner.

UGH!

Would someone please explain to me how this book got published?? I had such high hopes for this book...sadly they all just came crashing down...HARD! I spent the better part of this book thinking "HUH?" because at least half of the dialogue made no sense, the characters...
Would someone please explain to me how this book got published?? I had such high hopes for this book...sadly they all just came crashing down...HARD! I spent the better part of this book thinking "HUH?" because at least half of the dialogue made no sense, the characters would throw out information that continuously left me wondering "why in the world did they say that?" or "what does that have to do with anything?". The book certainly had a lot of promise and the world building definitely had promise, but unfortunately none of it comes to fruition.

    Been there, Done that

    Ok, characters. Poorly explained background. Seems to be a one off book.
