The Hunter's Moon (The Secret Warrior #1)
by Beth Trissel.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal.
Publication: December 14th 2015 by The Wild Rose Press.
Seventeen-year-old Morgan Daniel has been in the witness protection program most of her life. But The Panteras have caught up with her and her younger brother. Her car is totaled, she's hurt, and the street gang is closing in when wolves with glowing eyes appear out of nowhere and chase away the killers.

Then a very cute guy who handles a bow like Robin Hood emerges from the woods and takes them to safety at his fortress-like home.

And that's just the first sign that Morgan and her brother have entered a hidden world filled with secrets...

This book had me at the start. The description of the chase on the curvy mountain road and their emotions of trying to get away from the bad guys hot on their tail had me on the edge of my seat at the start. I could see it all in my head. I couldn’t put it down. Who doesn’t like a little action like a car blowing up or some wolves that come and save the day. Even though you aren’t sure if they are going to rip you to shreds too. I knew I would like it right then!! Plus, I love Paranormal and Native American stories.

Jimmy is the little brother to Morgan. He is adorable and very smart. He is enjoying this new life he is thrust into. He is a ten year old genius who can shoot an arrow straight on! I wish my brother was more like him when we were younger. Shh, don’t tell him I said that!

Morgan is terrified to learn that her life has been a lie. That she is about to become something else. Jackson is there for her and helps her to learn more about the world she just walked into and should have been exposed to years ago. I would be freaking out too! Jackson and Morgan have an instant connection and attraction to each other. She just learned her whole life is changing and why not add someone to love in the mix?

Anyway, this is the first book in a young adult series with a lot of different aspects of the paranormal not just the wolves and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. This book was really just a short teaser.

If you like Native American stories, shape shifters, curses, living in the mountains and woods, a little violence, semi immortality, action and adventure then this might be for you!

“Should we stay, or go while the smoke lasts?” The cloth muffled her voice.
“You can hardly walk.”
She couldn’t argue that point. Neither could they wait to be found. “The Panteras won’t give up until we’re dead.”
“Maybe they think we are,” he argued under his breath.
She suspected Mateo would demand a body, even a charred one. Make that two. She and Jimmy didn’t have much choice, though, other than to crouch in dread while the fire crackled.
“Next birthday, I want an AK-47.” He nudged her. “Look.”
She fixed her blurry gaze on what appeared to be a black wolf emerging from the trees. The creature was larger than she’d thought wolves were, and she’d understood none remained in these mountains. They were all farther north or west. Somewhere else.
Apparently, she was misinformed.
Judging by its size, she guessed this was a male. He stopped before their hideout. Eyes the color of red coals surveyed them before he turned and darted down the trail she’d spotted.
“Holy cow, Batboy. Did you see that?” she whispered.
Jimmy didn’t reply. He prodded her again.
She stared at the big brown and gray wolf that took the black one’s place. Where on earth had he come from?
The beast turned its furry head at her and Jimmy. His eyes shone with a luminous light, like fireflies...

Married to my high school sweetheart, I live on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia surrounded by my children, grandbabies, and assorted animals. An avid gardener, my love of herbs and heirloom plants figures into my work. The rich history of Virginia, the Native Americans and the people who journeyed here from far beyond her borders are at the heart of my inspiration. In addition to American settings, I also write historical and time travel romances set in the British Isles, and nonfiction about gardening, herbal lore, and country life.
