Title:Moonlight (Dark Guardian 1)
Author:Hawthorne, Rachel
Publisher:Harper Teen
Pages:272

Kayla has some issues. When she was very young, hunters mistaking her parents for wolves, shot and killed her parents in a National Forest. Now on the cusp of turning seventeen Kayla is miles away from home, dealing with her parents death by taking a guide job in that same forest. The rest of the guides are super nice, except for Lucas. He tends to just stare at her from afar, why is it he is the one who gets Kayla’s heart beating so fast? The first assignment is to take a group of research students and a professor farther into the woods than normal. Kayla finds out quick these people have an ulterior motive and accidentally aides in their attempt to find a werewolf. Who thought they existed? Can Kayla right her wrong and face her fears in time to save the wolves?

I gave this book a three instead of a four because it reminded me of other wolf books I have read. There wasn’t a lot of originality but the book was really fun. Fast paced and even though you have figured out what is going on Kayla hasn’t and watching it all unfold through her eyes is a real prize. The characters were well thought, fleshed out well, and relate-able.

The book is part of Harper Teen’s Pitch Black book set and I will be ordering the rest of this series here in a few moments. I would not pass this one up, especially if you like parnormal / lycan books. If you enjoyed The Summoning, Blood and Chocolate, or Shiver you will like Moonlight. It’s on sale at Amazon for $3.60 right now. What better time to give it a go?

    I’m so glad to see this book on here!
    I thought I was the only person who actually read this series! They’re a really fast read and simple but I find them fun for a change. Like you said you know what’s going to happen but I still find them enjoyable just for a change. It’s good to know I’m not the only one who doesn’t mind reading them. ^^
    I LOVE reading your reviews of books!!! I know i’m going to be ordering a whole pile from the library now. Hopefully they don’t all come at once!!
