In the world of the Were-Hunters, like stays with like. Species don't mix and they definitely don't fall in love. But from the moment Aimee Peltier took in a wounded wolf, her heart wouldn't listen to what her head told her.
However, 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 lyncanthropes. His brothers are the wolf representatives and Aimee's mother represents the Bear clan. Aimee is the heir apparent for her species. There is no way these two can ever be together and they know it.
But when war comes to Sanctuary, the establishment run by Aimee's family, sides must be chosen and enemies are forced into shaky alliances. Aimee is accused of betraying her people, and her only hope is the one man who believes in her. Yet in order to save her, Fang must break the law of his people, and that breech could very well spell the end of both their races.
Bad Moon Rising
was one of the most anticipated books and it sure didn't let down, though it had a few weaknesses. About seventy percent of the book was the rehashing of the past events only from Aimee and Fang's point of view. I understand the necessity, and the story was truly interesting and intriguing, and while mostly I could forget that I already knew more than I normally should, due to the fact of some truly unexpected and never before talked about events (Fang and Aimee's struggles), there were times I desperately wanted to finally turn the page with a present day events. Besides, there were small continuity problems and ends left untied, but that's about it.
Aimee and Fang were one of my favorites since long, long ago. A beautiful Romeo and Juliet story. Only without the dying part. Plus, with gradually and fully developed relationship.
It is the story that shows a true connection and devotion between the heroes. It is not simply physical. And it is not one of the books where everything happens in few days time. It is a journey. With challenges and trails. It is also dangerous and risky. Romantic and tragic. Bad Moon Rising
is a breathtaking love story with strong characters, even stronger devotion and no easy way to the happy ending. For all those who love action filled emotional roller-coasters, it's a book for you!
