Framed for her lover's murder...
Victoria Storm, Alpha of the Storm Pack, leads her beleaguered family of wolf-shifters in a desperate flight from Odin's mortal followers. Her worst enemy, a rogue hunter, won't stop until his brother's death is avenged and he'll kill anyone who gets in his way. Following Freya's prophecy, Victoria seeks sanctuary in a small town high in the secluded Sierra Nevada Mountains.
In Sierra Pines, nothing is as it seems.
Victoria considers a marriage of convenience with Arik Koenig, a powerful lawyer with a Loki-like gift for twisting the truth to his advantage. The more she learns of his mysterious past, the greater her mistrust. With the fate of her pack on the line, Victoria undertakes an investigation into the murder of Arik's wife. When her prying uncovers layers of lies and deception, a blizzard of Ragnarök proportions threatens to consume them all.

Unique, intense story with a remarkable yet imperfect heroine!! We join Victoria, High Priestess of Freya, Lady Valkyrie, shaman and healer, as she has a knife at the ready to kill the Hunter Sawyer, but the ghost of his brother Daniel (her lover and best friend) tells her “no”. They lose Rand in the battle and Victoria accompanies him to Valhalla where she is able to visit her parents. They encourage her to take a mate; for the good of the pack. Her mother had a premonition of a man every bit as strong-willed, stubborn and contrary as she; in Sierra Pines, CA. Her unwelcome prince charming Arik ends up having an even more unwelcome career – lawyer. But when they meet she finds he is a perfect specimen of a man, with a hint of humor. Arik is hiding something and his son Logan may be a problem. Arik has been a widower for 2 years, but when Victoria speaks to Lori’s spirit she discovers her spirit is tormented and has not passed into the afterlife. Amazingly she ends up working on this with Logan - and a ghoul. An amazing, complex story of lifemates, goddess’, witches, pack and Valhalla. With danger, mystery and sexiness all wrapped in the need to provide for the pack. A pretty intense read – and everyone may not receive their HEA. *A complimentary copy was given in exchange for an honest review*
***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW*** Hunger Moon, Melissa Snark's first full-length novel in the Loki's Wolves Series. I love this series, so hard! Victory and her wolves suffer one set-back after another, and the writing is so very thought provoking. The characters are evocative and likable, and the world building is so very intense. I cannot wait to read more, not only in this series, but by this author. ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.
I enjoyed this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down, which was unfortunate because it was not a short book and it interfered with other responsibilities. It was a complex and unexpected plot, but as it ended I felt bereft. I felt as if I was just getting to know these characters - and then they were gone. I will not spoil this story by saying too much, but I would have preferred if it had ended differently. I still have so many questions about what comes next. I guess that's how the author ensures a readership for future installments. I will definitely be looking for more to read from this Melissa Stark.
