Overview

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.

Overview

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.

CHAPTER 1

January 2003 Sanctuary, New Orleans

"So that's the infamous Sanctuary...."

Fang Kattalakis looked up from where he was locking down his sleek Kawasaki Ninja to see Keegan eyeing the triple-story redbrick building across the street.

The pup was just hitting puberty—about thirty years old in human time, but true to their species and his Were-Hunter age, Keegan appeared around the human age of sixteen—which meant he was as excitable as an adolescent. Dressed in black leather to protect him while he rode his motorcycle, Keegan almost dropped his bike in his eagerness to visit the famed sanctuary that was owned by a family of bearweres.

Fang let out a long exasperated breath as he secured his helmet to his backpack. As punishment, he and his brother Vane had been assigned watch duty over Keegan and his twin brother, Craig.

Joy, oh joy. He'd rather have his entrails pulled out through his nostrils—whelp-sitting had never been to his taste. But at least they didn't have their leader Stefan along on this outing. That would have resulted in all-out bloodshed since Fang had no respect or tolerance for Stefan even on his best day.

And today wasn't even a "better" day.

The blond pup was all limbs as he started to leave, but Vane caught him by the scruff of his neck.

Keegan went instantly limp, which said it all about his age and inexperience. Even when he'd been a pup, Fang had never surrendered without a fight. It wasn't in his nature.

Vane released his grip on the kid's collar. "Don't leave the pack, whelp. It's a bad habit to develop. Wait on all of us."

It was why they were all riding motorcycles. Since "average" young weren't real good at teleporting until they were around forty or fifty years old, and because whelp powers tended to play havoc with even the strongest when being teleported by another, mundane human transportation was best.

So here they were.

Bored. Agitated. And looking human. What a disgusting combination.

Most of all, Fang was tired.

And since they were training the whelps to socialize and maintain human forms during the light of day ...

Sanctuary had seemed the best and safest place to take them outside of camp. At least here if one turned wolf, the bears could hide it. Only the strongest of Katagaria wolves could remain human in daylight. If the pups couldn't learn to hold their alternate human forms under the power of the sun by the time they turned thirty-five, their leader would order the pack to kill them.

It was a harsh world they lived in and only the strongest of their species survived. If they couldn't fight and blend in with the humans, they were dead anyway. No need in wasting their precious resources on creatures who couldn't defend the pack.

Vane glanced over to Fang as if waiting for him to say something nasty to Keegan. Normally Fang would have some smart-ass comment about the pup, but he was just too tired to bother.

"What's taking so long?" Fury paused beside Fang, chafing at his delay. Not quite as tall as Fang, Fury was lean and vicious. With turquoise eyes, Fury had sharp features and everything about the wolf made Fang's hackles rise. His long white-blond hair was pulled back into a tight ponytail.

Slinging the backpack over one shoulder, Fang raked him with a sneer that said what he thought about the wolf—not much. "Locking down my bike, asshole. You want I should lock it to you so that I know it'll be here when I come back?"

Fury's pupils narrowed. "I'd like to see you try."

Before Fang could lunge at him, Liam, Keegan's much older brother, was between them. "Down, wolves."

In true wolf form, Fang bared his teeth at Fury, who returned the gesture. At Liam's insistence, Fury moved past him while the eight other wolves crossed the street.

He and Vane pulled up the rear.

Fang indicated Fury with a jerk of his chin. "I really hate that bastard."

"Don't kill him yet. He has his uses."

Maybe. But not enough of them that Fang wouldn't rejoice to mount Fury's hide to his wall. Not that he had a wall, but if he did, Fury would make a nice hairy decoration.

Fang turned his attention to his brother who was about an inch shorter—Fury's height. "So why are we really here? We could have trained the pups in camp."

Vane shrugged. "Markus wanted us to register with the bears. Since we have so many burdened females, we might need the help of their doctor."

Yeah, their sister Anya and half a dozen other females would give birth at any minute. Markus, the unwilling sperm donor for the three of them, had also wanted his "sons" out of his sight. Which was fine with Fang. He wasn't exactly fond of the old fart either. He would have already challenged him for leadership, but Vane and Anya kept pulling him back.

Since Vane was an Arcadian hiding in the midst of their Katagaria pack, the last thing they needed was Fang to be leader. That would lead to uncomfortable questions such as why Vane, his elder littermate who was their father's heir apparent and one they all knew had more magick strength than Fang did, wasn't the one fighting for leadership. But Vane could never do that. Because pain tended to make them involuntarily shift into their base forms, they couldn't risk Vane accidentally turning human in a fight.

It was why Fang had stayed up all night. Unconscious and badly wounded, Vane had been forced to sleep as a human. Their pack would kill his brother if any of them ever suspected Vane's true base form.

Yawning, Fang caught up to the pack that'd been stopped at Sanctuary's door by the club's bouncer. Bulkier than the wolves, the bear had long curly blond hair and wore a black T-shirt with the Sanctuary logo on it that was partially covered by a worn black leather jacket.

His blue eyes carefully scrutinized them. "Pack?"

Vane stepped forward. "Kattalakis Grand Regis Lykos ... Katagaria."

The bear arched his brow as if impressed with their pedigree. Grand Regis meant that their father had a seat on the Omegrion—the council that oversaw and made the laws that governed all Were-Hunters. Since there were only twenty-three members (twenty-four originally, but one species had gone extinct), it was impressive to be one of them. "Any among you bearing the Kattalakis name?"

"Me and my brother." Vane indicated Fang.

The bear nodded as he folded his arms over his chest and took on a tough stance. "We're Peltiers. I'm Dev—one of a set of identical quadruplets so no, you're not seeing double or triple inside—and stay clear of the one who looks like me dressed completely in black—Remi's an irritable SOB. My mother, Nicolette, is the Katagaria Grand Regis Ursulan—so don't start no shit, won't be no shit. Quick rule rundown. No fighting, no biting, no magick. You break the rules, we break body parts and you're banned from here ... if you survive." He passed a meaningful stare to the pups. "In short, come in peace or leave in pieces. You got it?"

Fang raised his hand to flip him off, but Vane caught his wrist before he could.

"We understand."

Hissing from the burn Vane was putting on him, Fang twisted out of his brother's grasp.

Vane glared at him. Keep your mouth shut and your gestures to yourself, he mentally projected to him.

I don't take orders from bears.

No, but you take them from me. Behave, Fang, or I'll kick your ass back to the Stone Age. Vane grabbed the sleeve of his jacket and dragged him into the bar.

Fang shoved him away. Unless he took him down with magick, Vane was nowhere near as strong as he was. "I'm not your bitch, boy."

Vane turned on him with a look that said he was one step away from taking his best shot. "Then do it for Anya. We might need them to help us if she has problems with her litter."

That was a low blow and it was the one thing Vane knew he wouldn't fight against. Anya was their lifeblood. For her, they'd do anything.

"Fine. I'm just irritable from lack of sleep."

"Why didn't you sleep?"

I was protecting you.... Some of the wolves had been on the prowl last night and Fang had feared them stumbling over Vane's position while he healed from his wounds and slept. So he'd stayed up to make sure Vane's injured scent and den went undiscovered.

But he would never tell his brother the truth. It would shame Vane to think his younger brother had protected him. "I don't know. I just couldn't."

"So who was she?"

Fang rolled his eyes. "Why do you assume it was a female?"

Vane held his hands up. "Didn't know you were fond of men. I'll file that under my special Fang folder."

Ignoring him, Fang glanced around the infamous dark club that wasn't overly crowded in the late afternoon. A few humans sat at tables while more played pool and video games in the back. An empty dance area was set before a stage with the name "Howlers" spraypainted in dark blue and white on the back wall.

Craig and Keegan pulled three tables together in a corner to accommodate the ten of them. Some of the humans eyed them nervously which Fang found hysterical, especially the woman who put her purse in her lap as they passed. Like a wolf needed money. But then, they were a rough-looking bunch. Decked out in biker leathers, each of them was ready to fight if they had to.

The only one of them even remotely clean-cut was Vane, who wore jeans with a brown leather jacket and a dark red T-shirt. That being said, he had the longest hair of any of them. But with it pulled back into a ponytail and with a clean shave, he was passable. The rest of them looked like the feral beasts they were.

Fang dropped his backpack on the floor and took a seat to stretch out his long legs. Leaning against the wall, he adjusted his sunglasses and closed his eyes to catch a combat "nap" while they shot the crap among themselves. If he could just have ten uninterrupted minutes to sit and think about nothing, he'd be a new wolf....


* * *

"There's a pack of wolves who just came in."

Her stomach sliding into her stomach, Aimee Peltier glanced up from the ledger where she was going over new orders. Their mother, Nicolette Peltier, froze at Dev's dry declaration.

She met Aimee's quizzical look as she pushed herself back from the large brown desk. "How many?"

"Looks to be eight Slayers and two pups in training."

Maman arched one blond brow. Though she was approaching eight hundred years old, she appeared to be no older than a forty-year-old human. Dressed in a fitted blue business suit and with her blond hair pulled back in a tight chignon, she looked prim and proper—unlike Aimee, who was dressed in a T-shirt and jeans and wore her long hair down. "Slayers or Strati?"

Strati were Katagaria warriors who were the fiercest of the bunch and usually quick to anger. The pups, due to hormonal shifts that were even worse on Were-kind than humans, were even more so. But they usually lacked the power and strength to back their egos. Slayers, on the other hand, were indiscriminate killers who slew any and everything that got in their way. Arcadians applied the latter to any Katagari soldier as a justification for why they needed killing.

If this group of wolves really were Slayers, their presence in the bar was like a keg of dynamite resting on an open hearth with a raging fire.

Dev scratched at the back of his neck. "They're technically Strati, but these are hard-core cases. Wouldn't take much to make them Slayers."

Aimee stood up. "I'll go wait on them."

Dev blocked her exit. "Cherise already got their orders."

She was aghast at his recklessness. "You trusted a human to wait on them?" Was he out of his mind?

Dev seemed unperturbed by his own stupidity. "Cherise is too even-tempered and sweet. I doubt even a true Slayer could be mean to her. Besides, I know how you feel about wolves and thought I'd spare you having to deal with them. We don't need any more drama here for a while."

It was true. Her encounters with wolves had never gone well. She couldn't explain it, but she shared her mother's distaste of their kind. Wolves were violent and filthy. Arrogant to the extreme.

Most of all, they stank to her "bear" sensitivity.

Nicolette stood up. "Aimee, go and keep an eye on them. Make sure they don't cause any trouble while they're here. I don't want another spectacle. If they so much as sniff in the wrong direction, throw them out."

She inclined her head to her mother.

Dev shifted to one side to let her pass. "If you need a hand, I'll be there with backup faster than you can say 'wolf stain.' "

Aimee had to stop herself from sighing in aggravation at her overprotective brother. He meant well. But there were times when she felt completely stifled by her family.

Even so, she loved them ... warts and all.

Patting him on the arm, she walked down the hallway to the kitchen where humans unknowingly mixed with a Were-Hunter staff. They thought this was a normal bar and restaurant. If only they knew the truth....

She grabbed her apron and tied it at the waist before she reached for her tray.

"Where have you been?"

She paused at her brother Remi's bark. Identical in looks to Dev, no surprise since they were two of the identical quads Maman had birthed, he'd inherited all the surly anger of his other three brothers combined.

Plus he barely tolerated her.

"With Maman, ordering food and alcohol. Not that it's any of your business."

Remi skirted a stainless-steel industrial table to encroach on her personal space in a way that made her want to knee him hard in his "man" pride. "Yeah, well, there's a bunch of wolves—"

"Dev already told me."

"Then get your butt out there and watch them."

She raked him with a sneer. "Nice attitude, Rem. Really, you should see about suing whatever asshole sold it to you."

He lunged at her.

Aimee caught him with her tray and shoved him back.

"Don't, brother. I'm not in the mood."

He shoved her back.

"Remi!"

He froze as their father came into the kitchen. Over seven feet tall and well muscled, Papa Bear was a frightening sight, even to the children who knew he would never harm them.

His long blond hair was pulled back in a ponytail that matched Remi's. In fact, he looked as much like Remi as Dev did and unless someone knew better, Papa could pass as an older brother.

"Leave your sister alone. Now go wash dishes until you cool down."

Remi glared at him. "She provoked me."

Papa sighed. "Everyone provokes you, mon fils. Now go and do as I say."

Aimee offered her father a reconciliatory smile. "It's just a mild disagreement, Papa. Remi has this whole need to breathe in and out, which annoys me. If he would just stop breathing, I'd be fine."

Her father gave her a chiding stare. "Never say such to me, chere. I've already buried enough sons and your brothers. Now apologize to Remi."

Completely contrite, Aimee went over to her brother. Her father was right, she didn't want anything to happen to anyone else in her family. Even as surly as Remi was, she still loved him more than anything and would protect him with her life. "I'm sorry."

"You ought to be."

Aimee growled at his hostile personality. Why did he have to pick a fight with everyone?

She glared at her father. "You know, it's a shame Katagaria bears don't eat their young, especially the annoying ones."

Wanting to put distance between them, she headed out the door, into the bar area where the human waitress, Cherise Gautier, was filling drinks. Petite and blond, Cherise had the kindest disposition of any being Aimee had met in her three hundred years of living. Creatures like her were rare and Aimee wished she could be more like her.

Unfortunately, she had too much of Remi in her for that—another reason she couldn't stand her brother most days. They were two peas in a pod that together made an unsightly mush.

"Hey, Aimee," Cherise said with a bright smile that cheered her instantly. "You okay, baby? You're looking a little flushed."

"I'm fine."

Cherise gave her a gimlet stare as she covered her hand and gave a supportive squeeze. "You fight with your brother again, boo?"

    Here's the download....

    There have been a few questions on this book and as I can see it has been answered that this is Fang and Aimee's book but there was also question on Salvitar so here you go. Sherilyn Kenyon is dividing this series into 4 parts. Part one was all about Acheron which is now completed with his book, part 2 is centered around Jaden and will end with his book, part 3 will be about Salvitar and will end with his book and last part 4 is based around a character that has not yet been introduced.

    BAD MOON RISING

    I am a huge fan of this series and generally purchase the books the day they are released. I didn't mind that it rehashed old stories, because it was all from a different perspective. And it was Fang's and Aimee's story, which I feel like I've waited forever to get. But I did feel like I missed something and was confused regarding some of the characters. I will probably re-read it to see if I just read it too quickly or there really was a hole in the story. It also made me want to re-read the older books because it's been years since I read those stories and hoped the re-read would fill in the blanks. It seems as if her stories are more rushed and shorter, yet they are now hard-backs and more costly. I admit to being addicted to all things by Sherrilyn Kenyon and will continue to read them.

    Wow.... not

    I have read every DH book in the series, some have been better than others but none has fallen so far off the mark as Bad Moon Rising. Totally flat read for me. It's obvious from nearly the beginning that this is all about explaining the past series and laying the groundwork for future books, throwing Fang and Aimee's romance in there was just an afterthought. I had no connection to them as characters, much less as each others love interest, there were no clear reasons why either of them sacrificed so much for the other because there was no relationship building. They just were and that was it. At one point there is a line in the book that says "The two of them had been sharing a bed for the last few weeks" and further goes on to explain in one small paragraph the dynamics of this arrangement. I was like huh? It's page 239 and that's all you've got? Just one of the many moments I was pulled out of the story and left wondering if there were pages missing from my book.

    I'm deep into the series, so I'll pick up the next book, but I'm with the reviewer who said if this is an indication of what we can expect in future books I'll eventually stop reading series.

    The Story

    The way Bad Moon Rising works is it is going back to before when Anya was alive and what lead up to Anya dying. Then it goes to the present and how Aimee fits in.

    Good Read...

    This book was not the best of the Dark-Hunter Series...but I think that I can speak for all the people who read this series from the beginning that it is still worth reading. I think the reason why some of the reviewers who started reading this series with this book or even one of the earlier stories didn't like it as much is beacause they didn't know the history of the characters that are in it. You have to read this series from the beginning, in order, to get the character connections! The story does go through time jumps but Aimee & Fang's story took a long time to develop. Starts in mid Talon's story & ends after Acheron & OSN. I love how Sherrilyn Kenyon can wrap all of the stories together. (Honestly though, all of the books are going to be downhill after Acheron's story. It was INCREDIBLE!)

    Another good read!

    This was another good entry into Sherrilynn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. Although I enjoyed it I wasn't quite as sucked into the story as I have been with others in this series. I'm not sure if it was because of the overlap when she goes back to the beginning of Fang's story which felt like a review with a differnt POV rather than a new story. Also, I'm starting to lose track of who is who. I'm wondering if maybe she should add a list of characters and mates for readers like some authors do like how Christine Feehan has a family tree at the beginning of all of her dark series so you can glance back and see who is related to whom and who all the lifemates are. Definitely a fun escape and read1

    Not one of the better books

    Huge fan.I was so excited to get this book,but very disappointed.A lot of what your reading, you have already read in other books so it became a little repetitive.Also the romantic story line was a little slow and not as steamy as other books. So many new characters are introduced and never really explained so it is hard to keep up. I felt like the reader was more getting set up for other stories, rather than focusing on Fang and Aimee's story which we have been waiting for forever. Other lovable characters are not really acknowledged at all except in previous scenes that we have read in other books.I felt like this could have been an online read, instead of a book. Hopefully the next one is better.

    Dark-Hunter

    On www.Dark-Hunter.com they said that the series will be in 4 parts Acheron wrapped up part 1 now we're on Jaden's part. It lists all the parts and who they are. I can't wait for part 3 it's about Savitar it says. So this book is about Fang and Aimmee but will still cover everyone else. Like other books have led up to this one. Sherrilyn said that she got really wrapped up in this one so I am really excited to read it. Fang and Aimmee have been waiting for a long time for this one. So it will talk more about Nick. I'm not sure about Fang's sister. I can't really remember all the books that well. But I do remember a sister.

    Not Great Writing!

    This is not a great example of Kenyon's writing skills. I read two pages and almost didn't finish. The most annoying aspect is that it is very difficult to follow the passage of time. You get barely mentioned clues that tell you months or even years have passed but no real acknowledgement from the main characters that they have experienced long seperations. It is like you get bare miniutes of their story in small flashes that leave much to be desired. Also, the bare minimum of plot that is there is so disjointed that it is hard to get into. The one or two pages of truely poignant writing are hardly worth the time to get to them.

    Horribly frustrating and very disappointing.

    ith a deadly nod to The Gift of the Magi and Romeo and Juliet, BAD MOON RISING is a solid Dark-Hunter tale

    In 2003 in New Orleans Were-hunter enforcer Wolfswan Fang Kattalakis and Bearswan Aimee Peltier are attracted to one another; a forbidden desire as species don't mix and mate. Whereas his brothers are on the Omegrion ruling council; her family hopes she will be on the council. Daimons attack and almost kill Fang. His brothers take the unconscious Fang to safety so he can heal from his severe injuries.

    Aimee dreams of Fang and learns that his state of poor health is caused not by physical wounds as her siblings assume, but because the Daimons removed sections of his Fang leaving him trapped in two realms; physically his body is removed from his soul which is trapped in the nether realm. While Fang battles to survive, Aimee knows to save the man she loves she must kill those who stole parts of his soul before the demon wins. At the same timr in the nether Fang offers the rest of his soul to his enemies to keep Aimee alive.

    With a deadly nod to The Gift of the Magi and Romeo and Juliet, BAD MOON RISING is a solid Dark-Hunter tale although key events in the Kenyon pantheon have been described in other books (see NIGHT PLAY for brother Vane's view)) during and after this novel takes place; that takes a major adjustment for long time fans to see perspective from another viewpoint. The story line does not expand the universe very much as the focus is on the lead couple's forbidden love that makes for a strong tale as a stand alone with the star-crossed lovers related to adversarial "swan" VIPs, but not much added to the overarching plot.

    Great!

    I read some negative reviews about the book, so I did not have high expectations. It ended up being a great read. Yes, it goes back in time, starting with Vane helping Talon, finally explaining in detail the murders of the pack and Anya, and filling the gaps about Wren's story. But except for some parts that were literal copies from other books, the story was new, fresh and rich in characters and stories. I loved Aimee and Fang's love story and all the new underworld that was revealed. This is clearly a must read that sets up the realm and characters of the next books and connects past and future characters and events in that way that only this author can do.

    LOVED this one...

    I have to say, I have read most of the Dark Hunter books (except the ones that I can't get on Nook--I wish they would FIX THIS!)..
    And the two Weres stories (Vane/Fang) are among my favorites. I don't know what it is about the characters that I love--but I wish the author would make a series just for the animals. It rocks.
    This is a great book and loved it.

    A Little Confusing

    While I love 'dark' themed or 'underworld' books I found this one confusing. I didn't realize it was book 17 in a series when I read it, so that could be why. BUT, there were too many characters to try to keep up with and I'm not easy to lose in a book. I have jumped in the middle of a series before with Gena Showalter books and have never been confused with follwing all the characters. There are just way too many, good guys, bad guys and even worse guys. A seasoned writer really should know better than to do this.

    Loved the whole series!

    I was never interested in reading romance novels and certainly not about vampires. One book read as recommended by a friend and I was so hooked! Sherrilyn Kenyon is superb in building characters and holding your attention. They are page turners and I enjoy where she takes me. Start with the first of the series and keep going. Bad Moon Rising is the last written of the series, but there is more books to come. These Dark Hunters are very loveable, strong and oh so sexy. And did I mention action and mystery and suspense. Yep, it's all here.

    Wonderful

    Kenyon is truely amazing! Don't listen to the people leaving bad reviews, you can tell their left by people who haven't read the entire series. This book is number 18 in the Dark Hunter series. So you really wouldn't understand it without having read the first 17 books, and therefore wouldn't like it. That is why that one person who wrote a bad review didn't understand how the story jumped around in time, had he or she read the other books, they would have understood and loved it because this book explained LOADS from earlier stories in the series. Not to mention Fang can time travel, so its gonna jump around a bit. I love, love, love this series, it is my ultimate FAVORITE! If you like vampires, werewolves, stories of true love, non stop action and even bad guys who you want to love too, then read this series! Get the reading order off Kenyons website. You WILL NOT regret it.

    Pass this one over

    This by far was her worst book. I love each one of her books and usually can't wait to get to the next. However, when I bought this one I couldn't wait for it to be over. There was no connection to Amiee and Fang. Also the book felt throw together.

    More of a side note to me

    I was eagerly awaiting Fang and Aimee's story, but I have to admit I was disappointed. I was able to relate several scenes to previous books. This book was more filler for me in regards to the other stories instead of it being able to stand on it's own. I feel that Sherrilyn could have delved more into the story and given more details to the goings on. Of course, this will not deter me from future story lines of the Dark-Hunters.

    Was not what I was hoping for : (

    I was very excited about this book. I had been waiting months for the next book in the Dark Hunter Series. However, I was slightly disappointed. I think it was the fact that a lot of these situations with Fang & Aimee sneaking around we have already read about. Though it was from a different perspective...it felt like i was reading same story over. I did not like that the story begins so far from the present and it doesnt go past what we already know. Overall I dont think we discovered anything knew or different, the love story progressed at snail pace & I grew bored during the book! I hate to say it but this was so not what the Hype brought it out to be. I llove Dark Hunter series (its the best series). Just this was not top of my list as the best. Can't wait to find out who is next!

    Confused Here

    I am confused as to where this store fits in. The preview i read mentions Vane and Fang's sister Anya about to give birth. However for those of you who read Vanes story(Night Play), which i read about 4 years ago, the sister is deceased and Fang is very hurt with Aimee Peltier nursing him back to health. It is me????
