Book Spotlight: Moonlight

When Kayla was a little girl, her parents were killed in the woods by drunken hunters who thought they had seen a wolf.  All her life, Kayla has repressed these horrific memories – until now, when she decides to make peace with her past and embrace the wilderness that she fears and yet loves.

Kayla gets a summer job working as a wilderness guide – in the same forest where her parents were killed all those years ago.  She feels an immediate connection with the other wilderness guides – especially with Lucas.  Lucas is gorgeous, yet mysterious.  She feels a pull toward him, but at the same time she can’t read his feelings for her.  When he saves her life – for the second time – she realizes the truth:  Lucas is a werewolf.

Kayla’s life is going to change this summer, but she has no idea how much.

This is the first book in a trilogy by Rachel Hawthorne.  The book had a great pace with action and romance.  I thought it was much better werewolf story than Shiver.  I can’t wait to read the second book in the trilogy, Full Moon.

Review by Kathy, Children Services Coordinator,  Central Branch
A true werewolf love story, unlike that wishy-washy mainstream book-to-movie series that’s popular right now.  Great characters, and I liked how the tension kept building as the temperature was dropping.  Will he change?  Won’t he?  Will she?  Is there really a cure?  Will Jack give them all away?  Read to find out!  And I sure hope there is a sequel!
