While Trent tries to help Shiloh prepare for a supernatural battle, their fiery spark intensifies into a slow burn. Romance with an unlimited potential allows them to experience both the thrill of love and the chill of fear for the object of their affection.
Then Shiloh discovers a dark family secret that threatens to shatter her world. The only thing that keeps her going is her thirst for revenge and the protective, rebellious boy she's falling head over heels for.
When her classmates are attacked by a mysterious creature and her father is murdered, Shiloh vows vengeance. Except that's not all Shiloh has to worry about. She's also struggling not to become the very thing she fights: evil.
But with demon blood inside her-anything can happen...

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
Sherry Soule has continued the Spellbound Series in a page-turning fashion with book two! Moonlight Mayhem had me hooked – I cried, felt tension, suspense, and could not wait to read the end. In book two, Shiloh’s character really begins to grow and come into her own. Right at the beginning, her dad is killed and she vows to avenge his death. One of the most memorable scenes in this book is when she attends his funeral. It is written with such clarity and pain that I was there hurting with her. From this point on, Shiloh is vengeful and determined. I really felt her focus.
Shiloh spends a good portion of the book trying to figure out what’s going on in her town – but revenge is still at the forefront of her mind. Soule added a variety of characters in this sequel, such as lycans, zombies, and angels, which added depth to the story. At times, I was surprised that she kept introducing so many different types of characters in the same setting, but they didn’t take away from the plot in any way. While Shiloh does work with her mentor, Evan, at times she seems to be able to do more without his help. She is even able to set up a coven to fight the evil battering her town. While I was happy for her independence, I was a bit disappointed too, because I wanted Evan to have more of a story as I really liked his character in book one. As for Trent, he is still in the picture as her boyfriend, but he starts changing in weird ways too. It seems that their romance picks up a bit more than in book one but doesn’t seem to really be the focus at any time in this story which I hope evolves in the rest of the series. For now, the focus between them is a secret that Shiloh knows.
Similar to book one, the pacing of the events is well written and the reader can keep up without confusion. The action and suspense build in the book to a page-turning frenzy until the last page. It will be interesting to see where Soule goes next in this series and whether or not she continues to add supernatural creatures to the world of Whispering Pines.
