Harvest Moon, Lisa Kessler


Harvest Moon,  Lisa Kessler

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance, Sci-fi and fantasy


Continuing Lisa’s Moon series we meet Kilani. She’s Jason’s Mate – yes that’s right, Jason the doc who doesn’t believe in Mates until he touches her….she knows nothing of his world though and the dangers within it. Jason’s also having anger issues, feeling he let down the previous alpha and also his father. Had they gone to hospital he could have helped them, but the dangers of exposing themselves to humans is too great so the Alpha died, and his dad now lies in a vegetative state, with any recovery growing fainter the longer it goes on. Poor Jason, I felt for him. It was sad that he had feelings for Nadya but she turned out to be the Mate of another pack member ( that was in an earlier book), then this feeling of helplessness and he’s been getting rid of his anger in illegal fist fights. That’s dangerous too though and he’s in a kind of rut when he meets Kilani.

I love Kilani, she’s also had the same troubled background, same issues with Nero as other gifted people. she’s very self determined, very alone in many ways but knuckles down and gets on with life, she doesn’t whine about unfairness.  Now she’s too close to a killing by Nero and they want her dead, so she goes to the pack Alpha for help. Jason wants to be close to her and protect her and once more the whole pack are faced with Nero.

Nothing really seems to change – its Pack v Nero, with minor wins on each side, and I just felt with this book they’re at a kind of stalemate position. The romance between Jason and Kilani was great, developed well but the overall story arc of Nero seems to be stuck – well that’s how it feels to me. I loved the  last two books but felt this one was not quite up to them. They kept me engrossed and wondering what was going to happen next, but this one I kept putting down and picking up later. It was a good read, and a decent romance but I missed more of the Nero connection.

Stars: Four, a good romance but the action a little slow after the others.

ARC supplied by Netgalley and publishers.

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 amazon.co.uk 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.
