I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It is book 4 in the series and I haven't read the first 3 yet. I was hoping I wouldn't be too lost. I found this book could legitimately stand on its own. Jeanette Battista did an expert job making sure the reader would not be lost if this was the first book of the series they picked up. However, I'm sure if I had read the previous books I would have enjoyed it even more and likely gotten more out of it and the over arching story. This is not a grade school book report so I'm not going to get into she did this and then he said that....
There were so many interesting characters in this book. Ones that are obviously main stays such as Kess and Finn, but also newcomers such as the demon, Zamiel, and Lukas aka bad guy. The author did a notable job making a fully developed Lukas character and making the reader feel a little bit for him through the exploration of his backstory. In the end however, it comes down to the fact that no matter how crappy your life has been, you are responsible for your decissions and actions ie, hunting innocent people for your own glory.
The writing style was very easy to read and the story was stimulating. It was interesting to see a new take on the hunting humans for sport plot but with the paranormal twist -- hadn't seen that before. That was the main focus for this book, but the over arching story is about working through relationships, making the right decisions, and being a leader/mentor. Ms Battista created enough interest in the over arching story and the characters that I plan on reading the previous books of this series.

Oh man, let me tell you how much I love this series! I read all four books in three days, which still include a full time 10.5 hour work day, and normal house chore, and building a house! I read this book in particular in not quite 4 hours- and no it is NOT short, because this series has got me completely wrapped around its little finger! And book four is awesome. Each book gets better and better and it was definitely expected here but Hunter Moon has exceeded my expectations! I am now going to try to explain why without giving spoilers for this one, or the first three books
If I have to chose, I will say the most main characters are Kess, Laila, and a bad guy! No spoilers remember there are still all my favorite characters- minus Burke- which include Finn, Cormac, Rafe, and Mebis, along with some new characters, some which I believe will have some more screen time in the future, because this series needs to continue! I will say I’m surprised, because usually characters are pretty set, but these characters are still growing and developing and even surprising me with their choices. I love when that happens! It’s pretty cool to me. And I also love that there’s new characters that you meet and even though they are new, you learn about them like you did with all the other veteran characters. Zamiel has me ridiculously intrigued beyond belief!
Lets talk plot a second… Fantastic story line!! There are always reasons for weres to be hunted, especially those in secret trying to keep it that- a secret. But this plot line has taken it to a whole new level. And getting to read from the “bad guy’s” perspective is fascinating. No I still don’t completely understand the reasoning and definitely don’t agree, but who the hell ever understands a psycho madman!? It’s done so well, that you aren’t contemplating that you’re reading from the evil mastermind’s head, but needing to know where it’s going to go from here. I found myself wanting to know so badly if he’d get his come-upance! Expertly done!
Lastly, let me just say I’ve fallen in love with these characters so much! I’m still a big fan of Kess and Cormac from the first book, an they’ve been through so much, but now I’m completely invested in much more than only them. And you almost never get a storyline with multiple were species trying to work together! And the writing is just perfect. This author has the writing style to make it dark, scary, and even a little bloody, while still giving you hope, love, lightness, and beauty… That’s pretty hard to accomplish in my opinion! All I can say now is… MS JEANETTE PLEASE GIVE ME SO MUCH MORE- SOON!! 5
GRACEFULLY UNEXPECTED FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC PAWS! you’ve definitely got a fan girl stalker in me… I’m going to try to patiently wait for more GO NOW- I’ll wait right here- AND GET THIS SERIES… Cuz I say so LOL!
