5 stars = I freaking LOVED this book This is the first book in the Moon Compound series and it’s off to a really good start. In this shifter world, young shifters (early 20s) are sent to the Moon Compound to learn how to shift and control their wolf so that they don’t harm others. This is a process that can take a couple of years depending upon whether they are an Alpha or an Omega. Colin is expected to go to the compound within the next couple of years and his brother will follow him a year later. Keeping his brother close to him is important to Colin as they lost their parents at the age of 16 and have been raised by their pack. Suffice it to say, when the pack is attacked and Colin and his brother are the only two to survive, with Peyton being seriously injured, he is not happy when he learns they are being taken to the Moon Compound. Upon his arrival at the compound, Colin is escorted to his room/cell and is immediately noticed by Sloan, who has the overwhelming desire to protect Colin. We learn that Sloan has been at the compound for three years and still has not learned how to control his wolf. So his reaction to Colin surprises Sloan to the point he fears he may be going feral. Sloan’s protectiveness is put to the test almost immediately when Colin is approached by another Alpha with a bad reputation. After the ensuing fight, Colin and Sloan stop fighting their instinctual draw to one another and their relationship begins to develop and flourish. While I have read shifter books with Betas, I have never read one with Omegas (Colin) and I found the concept quite interesting. Although I knew that this was an M/M book, I was not expecting a shifter world in which there appear to be no female shifters; while this may be due to the focus of this book being on Colin and Sloan, I don’t believe it’s the case. Everything in the book points to an Alpha-Omega mating among the wolves which, of course, lends to some very hot encounters between the two and a rather interesting mating scene. Ms. Nacht does an excellent job in kicking off her Moon Compound series with a well-written and engaging book. I am looking forward to reading the next novella in the series to learn more about her shifter world and what happens to Brendan. I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!
