URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Bad Moon Rising - Sherrilyn Kenyon


Fang Kattalakis isn't just a wolf. He is the brother of two of the most powerful members of the Omegrion: the ruling council that enforces the laws of the Were-Hunters. And when war erupts among the lycanthropes, sides must be chosen. Enemies are forced into shaky alliances. When Aimee, the woman Fang loves, is accused of betraying her people, her only hope is that Fang believes in her. Yet in order to save her, Fang must break the law of his people and the faith of his brothers. That breech could very well spell the end of both their races and change their world forever. The war is on and time is running out...


OK I’m coming at this as a person who hasn’t read the other novels in the Dark Hunter series, which may come as a bit of a shock considering the sheer volume of these titles. Yet I still found this title to be easily read even without knowing who was who.

Whilst I don’t have the knowledge that many others will come into this book with, the backstory of the tale is easy to pick up with some old fan friends coming to play in this latest outing. The romance is solid and with a Were version of Shakespeare being played out within the text I did find the combat a little slap dash and wished that it had been a bit more solid. Still a fun read and something a little different. Will definitely look into more of Sherilynn’s work.
