Humanity left Earth several hundreds of years ago. Shifters were among the first to board the space stations escaping from the dying planet. During the long voyage in deep space, mutations changed the paranormal passengers altering their lives forever. As a result, shifters lost their ability to reproduce and enrolled geneticists to ensure their survival.
Valentine Lobo is the last werewolf left in all the Coral System. The undisputed leader of planet Lupine, he has been waiting for his genetically engineered bride for centuries. He has no time to court Mirella Canalis, the young woman whom he only sees as a means to an end. After all, her only reason to exist is to give the alpha werewolf an heir.
Valentine is arrogant and domineering. He must save House Lobo from oblivion. What will happen when he finally meets sweet and naïve Mirella on his wedding night?
A dash of space opera and plenty of steamy paranormal romance.

I liked this story it was about 195 pages, it wasn't long but was very well written. It had well liked characters, a pretty good story line. It includes some love scenes, a jealous alpha and his female who falls fast for him. I can't wait to see what happens next so I'm off to purchase the next book..

I seriously enjoyed this so much. I will be looking into more of the series and more by this author. Would recommend, it's a good twist on shifter/paranormal.

***Gifted in exchange for my honest review*** What I adore most about Monica La Porta is her world building, now this one is a bit different to the series I have read so far set in Rome, But there is a salute to the past in the traditions that have made their way in the centuries since the Shifter's of Earth have set out from earth to colonize the galaxies. Valentine Lobo is the last werewolf left in all the Coral System and boy he is worthy of Ms Laporta's stable of Leading men ( Marcus, Alex and Samuel are in my top Ten Book boyfriend list) I am hooked already on this brooding Leading Man, he has a lot on his shoulders, and these Coral System Wolves are no longer able to shift, the wolf inside trapped but they are still stronger than normal humans. When Valentine's Genetically engineered bride, Mirella Canalis is attacked he goes against tradition to keep her safe. Taking her to his home where the passion ignites - Mirella may have been specifically designed to breed with Valentine, but his wolf wakes and wants more than just an arranged marriage, Valentine soon begins to thaw, and when Politics and hidden agendas threaten both the relationship and the peace of the Coral System, can Mirella figure out who is against her before Valentine duels in battle to the death? This book had me thinking about the characters every time I had to put it down, I finally got to sit and finish it on Friday... and OH heck I want book two ASAP. Monica has a hit on her hands - this is a must read series if you are into Paranormal.

When Monica La Porta puts pen to paper, sheer magic inevitably ensues. Before I read The Fifth Wolf's Moon, I was dithering over the whole "wolves in space", not to mention a young virgin actually created and raised to be a Blessed Bride for an alpha male. Not being a fan of either one particularly, I thought it's been done before...many times, sigh. Being a fan of Monica La Porta's Immortal series, I was determined to read this story, as she never fails to entertain. However, I forgot to take into account the sheer power of her words. The fact that she could take a storyline...probably any storyline...and produce a book like Lobo and Mirella's story that gripped me from the beginning and left me feeling shredded by the end (and incidentally, yelling, 'No way, it can't end now!') cemented my opinion that Monica La Porta is one of the masters of her craft. Unwittingly, I immersed myself in this new world to the extent I could not put down this story, despite having to go to work on little sleep. I would recommend reading The Fifth Moon's Wolf when you won't get interrupted and follow Lobo and Mirella's imaginative otherworldly tale, along with an intriguing cast of characters and plenty of well-written action and suspense, on Lupine when Earth was left far behind long ago. Eagerly awaiting the next tale.

Fabulous story. Loved the new spin on Werewolves and Vampires. Valentine has been waiting on his "Blessed Bride" Mirella for a long time. The marriage starts out as an obligation for Valentine and turns into so much more. Who is after Mirella or are they just trying to bring Valentine down. Dragon was an interesting addition to the story. More. I would like another story including all the characters. Can't wait to find out more about this world and who is after the House of Lobo!

I have kept up with Monica La Porta's literary career and read most of her fabulous work. She has given us Immortals, shifters, fallen angels and fantastic worlds galore. Love, friendship and loyalty has been the message. Her heroes have been gracious, handsome and most often than not heartbreakingly seeking out something elusive or impossible, but none have been as arrogant and dominant as Valentine Lobo. The Fifth Moon's Wolf is the first book in a new trilogy by this very talented author. In a perfect world the handsome and dashing man would take one look at the beautiful heroine and fall instantly in love. Well our new hero is not a simpering fool, he leads, he orders, he is entitled and none will deny him. This new world that Ms.La Porta has spun is intriguing, ritualistic and the Powerful are absolute. We are taken on a journey where humanity and those more evolved have found a new haven. Traditions have the utmost importance. In this apparent perfect environment Monica has introduced us to some of her most colourful characters yet. Mirella is such a breath of fresh air...submissive but with a core of steel. I am looking forward to finding out how the story will divulge. So many probablities and so much potential. Ms. La Porta keeps my imagination active and my heart pulsating with page after page of sublime story telling. I was very graciously gifted an early copy of this book.
