A witch and a werewolf—a match made in hell.
Regan is about to play a leading role in someone’s plans for world domination. And all they need to do to ensure her cooperation is bite her.
Regan doesn’t do scared. It’s not who she is. But right now, she’s panicking. Being a werewolf is dangerous and one wrong step could mean the End of Days. And the only person who can help is the stunningly gorgeous, embittered son of the werewolf who bit her.
Caleb Stone wants an ordinary life. After a horrendous childhood, he fled the pack and now does a pretty good job of pretending he’s human. Self-delusion at its best. The last woman he wants to get involved with is a witch turned werewolf. However explosive the chemistry between them.
But soon it becomes clear that Regan and Caleb need each other, and together they’re going to uncover secrets that will turn both their lives to chaos.
I wasn’t all that crazy about Regan in the first two books in the series–she seemed cold and closed off, unable or unwilling to connect with those around her–the type of person who knows what is best for everyone else and takes it upon herself to make that happen, regardless of what everyone else might think they want or need. Heavy-handeddoesn’t even begin to cover it… So when I realized that her book was going to be novel-length rather than a novella, I really hoped seeing things from her perspective would change things.
I am happy to report that it did!
Regan’s 2000+ years old, and for the bulk of that lifetime she’s been dealing with some heavy duty guilt for something that happened when she was 18. It’s caused her to be closed off from just about everyone around her; for the most part her sisters are the exception, but there are plenty of things she keeps hidden from them, too. You could say she’s a bit of a lone wolf–and then she encounters a pack of werewolves, and (slight spoiler, but it happens almost right away) the label becomes even more accurate. Soon she’s embroiled in a mysterious plot to control the universe, and an even-more-lone-wolf werewolf (or is he?) might be the only one who can help her save life as we know it. If they don’t kill each other first, that is…
Witch’s Moon takes the threads that the first two books ( The Prophecy and The Darkness ) had begun to weave and pulls them together into a more cohesive cloth. Raven and Kael and Gina and Darius all have roles to play here, and seeing them working together with not only Reagan and Caleb but also Regan’s other sisters, Catrin and Lola to try and save the world was a heck of a lot of fun–stressful at times (this book’s picture could be next to the dictionary definition of “edge of your seat”) but fun 😉
Though most of the loose ends of the series are wrapped up here, I can’t help but notice that Catrin and Lola, two Daughters of the Morrigan are still single, so…hint, hint…
In order to fully “get” what is going on in the world Ms. Croft has built here, I think it’s best to read Witch’s Moonafter reading the first two books in the series. They’re novellas, so it’s not a huge time commitment, but well worth the effort. This one could be read on its own if needed, but I recommend you treat yo’self and read all three 🙂
Rating: 4 stars / A-
