Revenge has no limits.
Special Agent Matthew Roarke has abandoned his rogue search for serial killer Cara Lindstrom. He’s returned to the FBI to head a task force with one mission: to rid society of its worst predators. But now in the new, highly polarized political landscape, the skeletal symbols of Santa Muerte, “Lady Death,” mysteriously appear at universities nationwide, threatening death to rapists, and Roarke’s team is pressured to investigate. When a frat boy goes missing in Santa Barbara, Roarke realizes a bloodbath is coming—desperate teenagers are about to mete out personal, cold-blooded justice.
Hiding from the law, avenging angel Cara Lindstrom is on her own ruthless quest. She plans to stay as far away from Roarke as possible—until an old enemy comes after both her and the FBI, forcing her back into Roarke’s orbit. This time, the huntress has become the hunted . . .

I am so disappointed with this, I was eagerly anticipating the next story in this series because I loved it and they have all been 5 Boundless Stars up until now. I personally feel like Sokoloff loaded this book with so much of her own personal biased political opinions, it just completely overshadowed the entire story. Not only that, it has put a clear date stamp on the story, instead of letting it be ambiguous to the early 21st century. I love Sokoloff’s passion for women’s and children's rights and follow her on FB, so I understand her loathing of the current administrations. I get it. Had she just added a few political views in the book I would have been fine, but this story is plagued with them. It is like reading her own personal manifesto. I read to escape politics and the general crappiness going on in the world. Not that Sokoloff’s books are light and airy, but they are normally still an escape and I feel like I become more knowledgeable in the process. I really hope on the next book Sokoloff goes back to her original formula and keeps the political opinions out or at least to a minimum. I am giving Hunger Moon 2 Boundless Stars.
