Hunter Moon Blog Tour!

Hey everyone, so if you haven't read Jeanette Battista's Moon series you are seriously missing out!  She has created an awesome paranormal world with multiple shifters and so much drama.  I think Hunter Moon may be tied with Jackal Moon as my favorite in her Moon Series because so much happens!  The plot of Hunter Moon was extremely well thought out, and included all of the characters we have met in previous books.  This book focused most on Kess, which is understandable since she was the prey being hunted.  I wish that we could have seen more a little more Laila in this book.  Laila in my opinion is the best character from this series.  She is kick ass, holds no bars, and doesn't take prisoners.  Granted we do see a little bit of her, it wasn't really fun Laila like we saw in Jackal, it was revenge mode Laila, and dang she's scary. 

As I mentioned earlier the plot definitely moves at a fast pace and is del put together.  There isn't really a happily ever after in the book which is sad, but also very realistic.  Plus, Cormac comes back!  (Cue trumpets!)  I really do like the way Jeanette has set up her character relationships.  There is a realness, but also fantastical image to them, (uh the shifter part).  

Overall, if you are looking for something fun and quick to read, I can highly recommend this series to you!  It is super fun, and there are different characters for everyone!  Hunter Moon is where they all kind go mesh together, but Jeanette writes it in such a way, that it's believable and not so overwhelming!  Pick it up and read it!  It's super fun!

4/5 Oh Yeah I liked it a lot!

Look an awesome character profile on one of the characters from Hyena and Hunter Moon: Rafe!

Rafael--Rafe--is the youngest child of Samara and James. His older sister Teresa was favored by their mother from the start, while Rafe was his father's favorite. Unfortunately, James left the family when Rafe was still young. He doesn't know why his father left, but suspects it has something to do with Samara's abusive nature. Once he was left alone, Rafe was pretty much bullied by his mother and sister on a daily basis. In the case of werehyenas, this is considered normal--females run the pack and are larger and stronger than males, and therefore are dominant in the social structure.
Rafe excelled in school. His favorite subjects were science and math--he liked that there were concrete rules and every problem was solvable. He spent much of his free time at school or at the library; anything to keep him out of his house and away from Samara and Teresa. When he wasn't there, he was skateboarding with the few friends he had. Once Samara scarred his face though, he stopped skateboarding and lost touch with his friends.
He became a loner, sure of his worthlessness. He found solace in reading and drawing. His favorite book was Something Wicked This Way Comes and he devoured everything Ray Bradbury wrote. Rafe tried his hand with writing and drawing his own comic books, but didn't think they were very good. He still has them and sometimes thinks about showing them to Lenore, but he's not ready yet.
He'd never had a girlfriend until Lenore. Rafe had always been shy and clumsy around girls, unsure of himself thanks to his mother and his sister. He feels like Lenore is the greatest gift he's ever received. And he can't believe that he was lucky enough to meet her--he feels like he owes Kess a huge debt for putting him in Lenore's way.
He's got a huge amount of respect for Kess and feels like she's the big sister he's always wanted--but he'd never tell her so. He doesn't want to creep her out. At the same time, Finn is the older brother he never really wanted, but now has to tolerate, especially when he fills Rafe's shoes with pudding. He actually likes Finn a lot and kind of hopes he can be more like him. Finn, as usual, is oblivious.
Rafe is still terrified of Laila. As he should be.

About Jeanette:
Jeanette Battista graduated with an English degree with a concentration in medieval literature which explains her possibly unhealthy fixation on edged weapons and cathedral architecture. She spent a summer in England and Scotland studying the historical King Arthur, which did nothing to curb her obsession. To satisfy her adrenaline cravings—since sword fighting is not widely accepted in these modern times—she rode a motorcycle at ridiculously high speeds, got some tattoos, and took kickboxing and boxing classes. She gave up the bike when her daughter came along, although she still gets pummeled at the gym on a regular basis.

When she’s not writing or working, Jeanette spends time with family, hikes, reads, makes decadent brownies, buys killer boots, and plays Pocket Frogs. She wishes there were more hours in the day so she could actually do more of these things. She lives with her daughter and their ancient, ill-tempered cat in North Carolina.
