Dark Moon 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 11 reviews.
Sailon More than 1 year ago
Dark Moon is an erotic romp with a side of paranormal adventure. The story was very interesting and the numerous sexual encounters are very naughty and blazing hot. Although it is highlighted as Igmutaka and Mikaela's story it is also Sunny and Fen's story with some m/m action to boot. For me, I would of enjoyed more focus on the original and very intriguing story line and less limelight on the sex. Dark Moon is packed full of shape shifter combustible sexual encounters, interesting lure and hot but vulnerable alpha males. I received this ARC copy of Dark Moon from Kensington Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication January 28, 2014.

So this book caught me completely off guard! Don’t get me wrong, I have read the other books in the series, but WOW! This author has once again completely blown me away by writing another book that is so jammed packed with action, information, sex, and of course drama. And I can’t seem to get enough of it! During the course of this book, we get to know more about Ig, Star, Sunny, Fen and their completely unusual relationship. And by unusual, I do mean something that hasn’t happened during this series so far. While I do think that compared to the other books in the series, this book has more sex scenes for sure, but this is also about 2 separate couples. As opposed to the other books that are about 1 couple. One thing that I did enjoy about this book, more than the others, is we are really told a lot of more information about the history of the Chanku. With Ig being the spirit guide, we get to find out more from what he has seen happen, and then their Goddess does make more appearances in this story as well. While this book was packed with a lot of information at times, I did like how there was some instances that where touched on again that have been brought up in the other books. I liked how the author added that because it’s another way that that ties the series, as opposed to the characters all being Chanku. Overall, I did completely enjoy this book and I really can’t wait for the next book in the series! Reviewed by Crystal for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy provided for honest review*

Dark Moon is the long awaited story of three favorite and beloved characters.  Igmutaka, ancient spirit guide the Fuentes family line.  Mikaela Star Fuetes, the first female charge of Igmutaka and daughter to Tala, AJ and Miguel.  And finally a character that is amazing in her strength and determination, Sunny Daye.  She was once a crippled mute woman and now she is a strong and adoring lover and friend to Igmutaka and Star.  Characters that have always intrigued me and pulled at my heartstrings are finally having their tales told and what a lovely story it is. Star and Igmutaka have always had a special connection and I enjoyed how they finally decided that fourteen years apart was long enough and they put everything out front; no matter the consequences.  Star is tired of running from her love of Ig and she is traveling home to be reunited with her family and pack.  She has loved him forever and either he returns her love or she needs to move on.  Unknown to her, Ig has loved her too.  Now is the time to claim her.  He only hopes that she can love him as much as he loves her.  There is nothing like two head strong people finally realizing they are perfect for each other. While Star has been away from the pack, Sunny has been a confidant and lover to Igmutaka.  She always knew that he was not for her, but a very special connection brought them together repeatedly.  But Igmutaka has news for Sunny that her mate is on his way.  Sunny wants nothing more in the world and can’t wait. Fen Ahlberg is a lonely man who always felt apart from the world.  From his first disastrous meeting of Sunny, you can’t help but feel even more for the big man.  Their attraction is instantaneous, but considering the setting of their first encounter…it is inevitable and powerful.  There love is quick and action packed, but still holds a certain sweetness. I loved how Ms. Douglas interweaved the two couples blossoming romances.  But she doesn’t stop there.  She throws in a special twist that I could feel coming, but was unsure how it would unfold.  Without giving too much away, let’s just say it’s a first in the long history of the Chanku series.  Oh sweet heaven is it exciting! The only reason this novel doesn’t get my complete and undying love of 5 hearts is because the antagonist of the story fell short for me.  While the plot for the story was required, I think the storyline was rushed and could have held more angst and drama to the story if it would have been expanded.  Space and time may have been factors to the shorten scenario since the novel does encompass two couples.  All-in-all it is a small problem, I still loved the story and couldn’t put it down. Dark Moon is a very enjoyable read that demonstrates that destined love never dies but just gets stronger.  Time and obstacles will never keep apart what is meant to be.  Ms. Douglas has written a beautiful story of love and destiny and shouldn’t be missed if you love her amazing voice and her incredible Chanku’s.

Can there be too much sex? Yes, Dark Moon is more erotica than erotic and the story is lost. I love a good erotic romance. Throw in some paranormal elements and I’m even happier. When I received Kate Douglas’ Dark Moon (Spirit Wild Book Two) for review from her publisher, I was aware that it would have adult content. Knowing it was the second book in a series, I tracked down Dark Wolf (Spirit Wild Book One) to read first. I really, really enjoyed Dark Wolf. I’d never read Douglas’ paranormal romances about the shapeshifting Chanku, so this was a totally new world to me. Both the romance between the two main characters (Lily and Sebastian) and the suspense-filled story as they track down a rapist-murderer was engrossing. I was surprised to find that “adult” in this case meant not just pretty explicit sex scenes, but foursomes. However it was all handled naturally within the story and never felt like it was sex for just the sake of titillation. That said, I can’t make the same statement about book two, Dark Moon. Igmutaka, a Chanku Spirit Guide, and his former charge Star get together as well as Igmutaka’s lover Sunny and her new found mate. Then they all get together and have sex - and have a lot of sex. As Igmutaka says at one point, it’s not that they're bisexual or homosexual - the Chanku are just sexual. Yes, got that.  And my problem with the book two isn’t the Chanku sexuality, I enjoyed it in book one, but the fact that the story of Dark Moon seemed to take a back seat to the sex scenes. This, in my opinion, moved this book from the “erotic” to the “erotica” shelf. As a dear friend said, who loved 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy, “I just started skipping the sex scenes. When you’ve read one, you’ve read them all.” I burst into laughter at her statement, but do admit that when sex seems to dominate the story, I’ll start skipping pages. I know authors spend a great deal of time writing these scenes, and for most, I won’t skip. But when it’s just sex? Or when it all starts to sound and look the same? The pages of the Kindle just fly by pretty much unread till the "story" recommences. In all honesty, I have to say that the pages Dark Moon flew by at an alarming rate. There is a sub story to the sex scenes that deals with another set of related killers to those from the first book who are preying once again on the Chanku. But it seemed such an afterthought that I barely realized it was there. Now, my ultimate test for a book. Would I read this again? No. Would I recommend it to a friend. Well that depends. It’s well written and if my friend likes paranormal erotica - absolutely. It’s just not to my own personal taste. Frankly, I think I was most disappointed as I had really enjoyed Dark Wolf: 1 (Spirit Wild Book One) and wanted to know more about the Chanku. I didn’t feel the second book really elucidated that much. Would I read other books in this series? Absolutely! In fact, I would like to go back and read the earlier series that dealt with many of the characters who serve as parents to this generation of Chanku. In addition, Douglas has just published another title in this series, Dark Spirit (Spirit Wild Book Three), that I’m curious about. -Two stars to Kate Douglas' Dark Moon: Spirit Wild Book Two I received an eARC from the publisher through NetGalley for use in the review of Dark Moon. I based my review of Dark Wolf on my own personal copy of the book.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! The cover is very nice! I do think both of them should have been on the cover though or all four of them. This is the 3rd book in the series. I don’t think you have to read the books in order. This series is for adults only due to the steamy content, and you should be aware there are descriptive scenes up to and including 4 people. There was definitely intrigue and mystery galore in this book, and it was definitely enlightening. I liked both women and both men. This book has a lot going on and kept you engaged in the book. This is a unique Chanku world that Kate has created. I highly recommend to any of Kate’s fans because you know her work, and to any shifter fan who loves a unique world with multiple partners and steamy scenes!

Title: Dark Moon - Spirit Wild Series Book 3 Author: Kate Douglas Published: 1-28-2014 Publisher: Kensington Books Pages: 321 Genre: Paranormal Romance Sub Genre: Werewolves & Shifters; Erotica; Ghosts ISBN: 13: 9781617734748 ASIN: B00ENMXSDW Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley Rating: 4 Stars I received a copy of "Dark Moon" from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Description From the Publisher: Shapeshifting creatures of amazing strength and sensuality, the Chanku now live openly all over the world. Yet the primal power of the pack beckons, calling each one home to surrender to pure pleasure. . . Return To Surrender Igmutaka is her Spirit Guide and protector. But Star desires so much more. She wants to take him as her mate. Years away have not diminished her craving for him and so she is returning home, to face the past and experience the exquisite rapture that only one of her kind can give. Despite the passion she and Igmutaka share, Sunny knows she has yet to find her one true mate. And when she comes upon carnage in the forest and sees the massive wolf standing proud before her, she wonders if this is the one who will finally satisfy all her carnal needs. . . Books in Wild Series: Dark Wolf Dark Spirit Dark Moon Dark Refuge My Review of "Dark Moon": This book contains adult content and strong language not recommended for those under the age of 18. Dark Moon is the third book in the Spirit Wild series. It has very explicit detailed sexual scenes that involves two, three and even four partners. There is a plot involved but it take a back seat to the coming together of Ig, Lilly, Sunny and Fen. Ms. Douglas sorts it all out in the end to the readers satisfaction, but I still felt the story was more about the sex scenes and less about the threat to the wolves and Chanuku pack. I don't mind erotic romance, but when it starts to become all about the sex I quickly loose interest. I must have skimmed over a third of the book. When "Dark Moon was about the plot it was great. at other times it lost my interest and conversation. I will read Dark Revenge to see if it goes back to the standard of the first two books if not it will be the last one of this series I will be reading. My rating of "Dark Moon" a 4 out of 5 stars.
