Blood Moon (Entangled Select Otherworld)

Blood Moon, (Moon 3),  Lisa Kessler.
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Paranormal romance,
Onto the third in the series now, and the overall story is fast gaining pace and becoming established as a real battle against the Nero organisation. Poor Nadya, orphaned at a young age and cared for by her beloved sister  Sasha, she’s now facing a death sentence. Sasha had escaped Nero’s clutches in the last book, and is about to marry werewolf Aren. As a last ditch attempt to hurt her a maddened, psychotic Nero werewolf bit her sister, leaving Nadya infected with the virus Nero had been experimenting with, which so far has sent all infected subjects mad very quickly.
The Pack doctor Jason has been trying to help Nadya, so far as they know there’s no cure, only a descent into painful madness and certain death in days, weeks, possibly a few months. Jason has feelings for Nadya, they’ve dated a couple of times prior to her bite and he’d love more, but that’s all on hold for now. In an attempt to help her he allows a Nero scientist to inject her with a serum he says may help, in exchange for copies of test data on her. Its a difficult decision, they have to keep it secret from the Pack Alpha who certainly wouldn’t approve of dealings with anyone from Nero, and of course there’s no guarantee it will help,  but it’s all they have for now and Nadya wants to try.
She’s always been drawn to Gareth, but he keeps himself apart from people, being very closed and solitary since the death of his brother at the hands of Nero. He’s always made it clear too he doesn’t care about anyone else, including Nadya, since his twin died, too wrapped up in his own grief. Poor Nadya is an empath and the emotions of everyone feeling sorry for her can get overwhelming at times, but oddly she doesn’t get them from Gareth, and one night feeling really down and in need of someone to just talk to, someone who’ll be honest with her she seeks him out. They talk a little, argue a bit and then he walks her back,even though they argued he can’t bring himself to be ungentlemanly and leave her alone in the dark, its not how he was raised. One touch is all it takes, one touch that happens almost without thought from either of them, just an age old instinct, one searingly sensual and addictive kiss and they’re both breathless and shocked. He doesn’t want a Mate who’s dying, can’t face losing yet another person close to him and he scarpers. He’d planned to leave soon anyway, being with the Pack just brings back too many sad memories, but this makes him go that night – a real moonlight flit. Poor Nadya, she’s heard about Mates, but until she experienced it she didn’t really believe it. She understands why he’s gone, its hard on her, really hard, but she can see why he won’t stay. The others though aren’t so understanding. Jason especially is cross, but then he doesn’t believe the Mate story either. He still hopes to be able to have Nadya somehow, and still wants a chance to be with her even when she tells him she only feels for him as a friend…
Its another fun, sexy read, with the different factors really coming clear now. I was a bit puzzled by the military/Nero separation at first but its become clearer as the stories go on, likewise the mix of people in the pack. I like the introduction of Gareth’s Native Indian relative, Chloe, a real Wise Woman and a gem. I hope we see more of her. Her part and the lake added that extra bit needed to make this story complete.
Its a really fun series, and one I’d love to read right through on a back to back session one day.
Stars: Four and a half, not quite the five, though the series as a whole read together for me is a five star one.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
