One bite on her hand … and Mel has a million problems slipping through her fingers.
After a wild animal attack, Melanie Caldwell ends up sick and disoriented. She and her friends think she just needs to go to the doctor. Then she’s kidnapped on the day of the next full moon, and discovers in the worst way that monsters are real . . . and that she has become one of them.
All Melanie wanted was to get a boyfriend and graduate college. Now she has to somehow deal with agonizing monthly transformations, a secret organization stalking her, friends and enemies trying to discover her secret, and hunters looming on the horizon.
Book 1 of The Wolves of Wellsboro series.
Sarah M. Awa’s howlingly intense drama Hunter’s Moon follows Melanie, a college student who is perfectly normal until she’s bitten by a werewolf. The changes that come over her are terrifying, but she is befriended by another werewolf, Gavin, who helps her hide what she has become. But Melanie and Gavin aren’t alone. A mysterious organization, which Gavin has reason to mistrust, is trying to recruit them. Other werewolves threaten all of them by exposing their kind to the world. Melanie just wants to survive college. But people are dying, and she doesn’t know whom to trust. Layers of plot twists keep the reader guessing, and more questions are asked than answered. Fans hungry for resolution will have to wait for the next book in the series, but they won’t be disappointed by this take on the werewolf genre.
Best for: Young adults who enjoy plot-driven stories and horror genres.
