I thought that this book was very well done. This is the second book in the Huntress/FBI Thrillers series which is a series that really does need to be read in order. This book picks up shortly after the events in the first installment in the series with Special Agent Roarke still trying to capture Cara. I was quickly pulled back into this ongoing story and had a really good time with it. Cara Lindstrom was the only survivor of a murderer known as The Reaper when she was just a young child. She is now also a murderer and wanted by the FBI. Her crimes have been committed against those that have harmed or are in the process of harming others. It is next to impossible to feel regret over the lives she has taken but Roarke is determined to bring her in. Roarke intends to set a trap for Cara and stumbles upon a crime much larger than he thought possible. I was completely pulled in by this story and had a great time trying to figure out how everything would work out and what the FBI's next move would be. There was a lot of action and the story moved at a pretty fast pace. I liked the profiling aspect of the story and thought it added a really interesting aspect to the story. R.C. Bray did a fantastic job with the narration. For some reason, his voice just seems perfect for this kind of story. He was able to really bring the story to life and did a great job with all of the character voices. I really like the quality of his voice and found that I wanted to listen to this book for hours at a time. I would recommend this series to others. I think that this is a very well done mystery that kept me guessing paired with great characters and enough action to keep things interesting. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the series very soon. I received a digital review copy of this book from Thomas & Mercer via NetGalley and purchased a copy of the audiobook.

I am so excited to be back with Special Agent Matthew Roarke, kicking down doors and taking down the bad guys, as his hunt for Cara continues. I love action from the opening page, getting me fully invested in the story and Blood Moon has it in spades. This book picks up where Huntress Moon, Book I, left off. It does fill in some blanks from the first book, but I will tell you now, I am so happy I started at the beginning. I don’t want to miss a thing and I don’t think you will either. Cara is a female serial killer, but she is so much more than that. She is a vigilante that Roarke has been chasing since Huntress Moon, Book I of the series. Cara was not born this was, she was created…by The Reaper. She touched me deeply. Right or wrong? Who are we to judge? She is exorcising her demons the only way she knows how, saving innocent lives along the way. Life is not black and white, but many shades of gray. Blood Moon makes many questions come to mind as man’s inhumanity to those unable to protect themselves is shoved in your face. Is evil alive? Does it have a physical presence? How far should they, the FBI, go to draw her out? Roarke has conflicting feelings, but comes up with a plan. Cara was Roarke’s incentive to become an FBI agent, since he learned about the tragedy surrounding her at when he was nine years old. Alexandra Sokoloff has written a story that pushes and pulls me in so many directions making me question myself. My morals and ethics. Who is right? Who is wrong? She skillfully weaves the past and the present, sharing the storyline from Cara and Roarke’s perspective. The investigation takes them to surprising places, the clues and evidence leading them in unexpected ways. This is not your typical police procedural. Reading all the evidence takes a meticulous and detailed mind, thinking outside the box. I think it takes a special kind of person, whether you are deciphering the clues as a reader or creating them as a writer. Alexandra Sokoloff is able to ramp up the intrigue, my curiosity, the suspense, and my anticipation to a horrifying, frantic level, making me wonder how this can possibly end. Would you care if the traffickers, rapists, and pimps were offed? Would you go out of your way to find the vigilante who protects children who are unable to protect themselves and others have cast aside? The characters come to life in a way I never anticipated. I loved them, I hated them, I worried about them, I raged at them, I fretted with fear and terror, and I wished they would go down in flames, and I mean that literally. I love/hate the ending, BUT don’t think for a minute that the story is done, because Alexandra Sokoloff has so much more coming in Cold Moon, Book III, and I do not want to miss one second of Roarke’s and Cara’s story. I didn’t wait…I immediately began to read it. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Blood Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff.

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book two in this series, and you really REALLY should read book one before you read this one. I STRONGLY urge you to read that book anyway, because Huntress Moon was a 5 star read. And so is this one!! Cara is at large, but they don't think she is a danger to anyone who isn't classed as the lowest of all pond scum: drug dealers, traffickers, prostitution ring leaders. Then the body count goes up, and it appears there is a copycat killing in the same way that The Reaper killed Cara's family. And Roarke might need Cara's help to catch him. Told again in the past for Roarke and present tense for Cara, it again gripped me and pulled me along at rocket speed in places! It meant that I had to slow down my reading, because I had to concentrate, and that's always a good thing in my opinion! Cara is still saving and taking lives as she sees fit. Roarke is now chasing both Cara and The Reaper. I loved the part that Cara played in helping Roarke's investigation. I can't word, not properly, what I feel about this book, indeed, this series, even at two books in, and you know how much that PAINS me, but I know this much: these books are pushing my reading way beyond my usual habits, and I am loving them!! I'm not totally convinced that Cara and Roarke's story is finished, even if it ended as it did. I still think there is a deeper connection for these two people that hasn't fully manifested itself yet. I might be wrong, but this is what I'm feeling and you know how I love to share what I feel! Not quite read in one sitting, that darn dayjob got in the way, but still a ... 5 star read! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Wow, this story blew me away. First, don’t start the story here go back and read or listening to book one, Huntress Moon. Since that is where everything starts. There are spoilers here that will spoil that book. You have been warned. Roarke and his team are reeling from Kara’s escape at the end of book 1. Yet with her help they were able to close down a human trafficking ring. Roarke is in such a screwed up mindset. He is so completely attracted to Kara and doesn’t have his heart in the game of catching her. I mean really, she is killing evil men; rapist, murders, child molesters and human traffickers, the worst that society has to offer. Is it such a bad thing to leave her on the streets? to clean up the messes that the modern justice system, let fall through the cracks? Roarke is struggling with that very thought. But he is a law man through and through and know he needs to bring her in. He and his team devise a plan to lure her in using the original Reaper case as bait, yet what they find is so chilling. The Reaper is active again, killing again after 25 years! Roarke and his team are racing the full moon to prevent another family from being slaughtered; at the same time they are trying to catch Kara. Blood Moon was crazy good! I found myself glued to it, riveted for the next word, sentence, paragraph, and chapter. Sokoloff wrote Kara in a way that even though she was so obviously crazy, you still understand her. There are too many times evil men get away with unspeakable acts against women and children because we live in a rape society. Just this year a man served 3 months for raping an unconscious woman. 3 months! Another man had his sentence suspended after he RAPED a 2 year old BABY! I am not condoning murder or violence, but if the laws won’t protect women and children, the bringers of life and the future, something is fundamentally broken and something’s got to give....Sara

Just like the first in this series this book will keep you riveted and turning the pages. Special Agent Roarke is tasked with tracking her down. His feelings are torn between wanting to stop her killing spree and actually sympathizing with her because the people she is targeting--25 years after her entire family was murdered- are actually not very good people and deserve to die. You can't help but be sympathetic with this woman as she alternately helps Agent Roarke and hides from him!

As the second book in The Huntress/FBI Thrillers Series, I HIGHLY recommend that you read the first book before this one. Special Agent Roarke is trying to find the only living victim of a family slaying. She was only five years old when the rest of her family was brutally murdered and now she is suspected of being the target of the same murderer 25 years later. We learn a lot more about Cara and what is going on in her mind. There is another killer on the loose that is exploiting women and girls for the pleasure of other men. I have chills just thinking of that part of the story. There are many revolting and disgusting things thing that take place within this book, but it is all part of the plot and investigation. The way the author weaves the clues and details, the reader can’t help but be curious about how it will all end. I felt like I was part of the team investigating and that I have a hand in the resolution! Kudos to the author for that! I can’t wait to see where the third book takes us. If it is as good as the first two, I know I won’t be disappointed. *Copy provided for review

I listen to this on audio: The author grabs you from the first page until the end. I have never read a book where I was torn between who to cheer for the killer or the police. The author tells a compelling story of so much pain, a whole family lost, she takes you on a journey and paints a picture of crimes that will stay in your mind for years to come. The narrator was outstanding, amazing you will hear his many voices for years to come as he gives you chills of the hunt. Ms. Sokoloff touches on some very serious issues of crime that most do not like to think about much less hear. She writes in a style that holds your attention why you hold your breath to see where she leads you. She gives us wonderful characters, explain each issue in a compelling tale why not giving to much away. She keeps the thrill and excitement in each word as her scenes hold you on the edge as you paint the pictures in your minds of chilling scenes where you can see the blood and almost smell it. I had more than one chill go down my spine as I listened to this audio.The author writes from the alternate points of view from the FBI agent and the woman he is chasing, being able to see the story from both sides which made an outstanding read. The author gives you wonderful characters that you can relate you, characters you feel compassion for as you feel their pain. Even when you think oh that is bad you grow to love them as they take on a part of your soul. There is no way you can read this story and not have it touch you in someway. You will love each character from the little boy who will steal your heart all the way up to the FBI agents. R.C. Bray narration is wonderful he brings so much in his many different voice they are by far one of the best I have listen to. Some of the scene he had chills going down my back as he held me on the edge not being able to put the book down. His voice is easy to listen to he bring the characters out in their rough ways that makes it a wonderful audio. Even his female characters where outstanding you forget you are listening to a man as he takes you on a ride that leaves you breathless. This is a book I had a hard time putting down. Few books reach in an grab my heart keeping a piece of my soul as this one did. The author knows how to write a compelling story that will stay with you. I highly recommend you pick up the book or audio it is different from any other I have read. You won't be disappointed and I feel sure you will be hooked. This is a wonderful beginning to what looks to be an outstanding series. I can't wait to read more by this author.

ow this was a great book. I read the first book by Alexandra, Huntress Moon, and I was hooked on this series. I loved this book just as much and didn't want to put it down. I have a real soft spot for serial killer books that are so good you can't put them down, I want the author to keep writing more like this one. I, so far, very much love this series and the author. I am now a big fan! * I received this book form the author in exchange for an honest review*

This second book in the series picks up immediately where the other one left off. I recommend not reading these back to back. The reason being that the first twenty five percent of this book contains so much repetition, some of it verbatim, from the first book.  Once the story gets going it moves about at the same pace with its predecessor.  Again, the story is a bit more action than Suspense Thriller.  I still cannot get into the Reaper character as he performs these flawless murders but the portrayal of the character is one of ignorance.  The FBI seems to ignore the law and put people in more harm than the actual killers do. Just generally a lot of disregard for real world basis in this one makes it difficult to take seriously as an FBI thriller.

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review** This is the second book in the Huntress series. Roarke, with other agents, busts more people involved in a human trafficking group. Four traffickers were killed, thirteen of them were arrested, and twenty five victims were freed. Human trafficking is the most profitable business in the world. You could sell a girl to a "john" over and over. Cara had led Roarke to part of the ring two weeks before. He had no idea where she was, if she was dead or alive. She had killed thirteen men that Roarke knew of. Roarke is conferring with Chuck Snyder, legendary profiler for the FBI as he believes the reaper is back at his horrible work again. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and didn't want to put it down until I was done. Roarke has changed with his interactions with Cara. He understands, to some degree, her way of thinking. He can be very determined when he thinks he right and does what he has to do to get the job done. Cara is a very damaged young woman as she saw her entire family killed in front of her by the reaper when she was five years old. You root for Cara as she only kills bad men, even though it's wrong. I would recommend it to anybody.

Blood Moon is the second book in this series and is just as suspenseful as the first, Huntress Moon. An FBI agent with a strange and dangerous connection to a female killer, who are both trying to solve an infamous case from 25 years ago because families are once again being slaughtered today. Fast paced. Amazing writing. Looking forward to more! (I would recommend reading these books in order.)
