This is a bundle….yeah bundle! This is my first from this author, and I was pleasantly surprised. I am going to go ahead and break the three books down for you here since Goodreads nor Amazon have done such. I do have to say that my favorite is Cold Moon, the last book in the series. I so wish she kept going with this series, by developing the world more and of course with new characters 🙂 Hint….. hint…….

Hold on to your seats, because here we go!

Blood Moon

Zack and Noah have known each other almost all their lives. They met when they were just five years old at Harper Lake. Unfortunately, Zack is dreading the usual summer trip back to the lake. He has spent the last year lost, trying to fill the void in his heart. Still wondering what exactly happened the year before between him and Noah. The day when he kissed Noah, and Noah kissed him back. However, the next day Noah severed their friendship and walked away from him. Now back at the lake he is constantly reminded of him; just wanting to get through the day while still putting a smile of his face for his twelve-year-old sister, Maya.

Upon the fourth day, he happens to see Noah at the end of the dock, where it all happened. He is not exactly sure if it is a hallucination or not. It’s not. Noah apologizes and eventually explains his past actions. Eventually Zack accepts the explanation and they find themselves back together; their bond not broken. More like snapping into place. There will be bumps in the road due to Noah’s circumstances, but nothing the two of them cannot work through together. In the end, one family is torn apart, one person is avenged, another will be found and a new life will be born.

Hunter’s Moon

Miles has always wanted to go to New York; like he is meant to be there. So, he enrolls in NYU for writing thinking that New York will give him the fuel he needs to write his stories that ‘what goes bump in the night.’ PC on the other hand, hunts the supernatural at night with his band of merry misfits. It is especially weird, since he is a lycan hunting rouge species with his friends that happen to be a witch, a few vampires and a hunter.

During one fateful night they both happen to meet under not so good circumstances. PC comes to his rescue in wolf form as he is being assaulted by two men in an alley. Miles feels safe around him; connected somehow. PC ends up running away and Miles finally finds his way home on autopilot. Time passes and there is an uneasiness to Miles and a need to find the person/wolf that saved him. He soon gets his wish when PC walks into the bookstore he works at. There is a world shattering kiss that follows, and PC once again runs away. Something more starts to build between them, and leaves a growing need between them. Eventually, their friends figure out a few things and bring them together.

In the end, there will a life altering change for one and an unforeseen betrayal that will lead into the next book.

Cold Moon

Not only is Charlie the youngest of the Fitzgerald boys, but he is invisible to his family. He just wants recognition and to become the hunter he is supposed to be. It doesn’t help that he is now 18 and a few months away from graduation. Not only have his parents not given him the “talk”, they have actually taken it upon themselves to apply and register him for NYU. Totally disregarding his wishes. Feeling stuck, he gets the idea to go to the Lycan Council and take the Silivasi contract.

Xan has been Charlie’s best friend for 15 years, and his protector. So, when he finds out that Charlie took the contract and is headed to Bucharest, he becomes furious. He ends up catching up to Charlie and in the process almost making matters worse for him. It is around this time that they both realize that there is more to their friendship/protector dynamic. As the story progresses and truths are revealed, they grow closer and closer together. They learn to work around their schedules, while still trying to complete the prophecy. In the end, love prevails and all is right in the world.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Insolita Luna provided by Harmony Ink Press in exchange of an honest review.


I love reading books about boys who love other boys <3. Sometimes there is a HEA or HFN, but sometimes it just is. Yes, I love all outcomes even it is not what I hoped for. We all need a good cry from time to time. As you can probably can tell, I love cliffhangers as well. Yeah, I am one of those people :) I read a variety of genres, whether it is dark/taboo, historical, shifters, GFY, SciFi, mysteries/thrillers; I love it all.
