Bad Moon Rising by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Dark Hunter book #26; Were-Hunter book #7

Genre: paranormal romance, urban fantasy

Cherry's Rating: 3.5 out of 5 cherries

My Take On This Book:
This is the story about Fang Kattalakis (wolf katagaria) and Aimee Peltier (bear arcadian).

The old premise in the Dark Hunter/WereHunter world is that different species do not inter-mate. It is a total no, no. Completely un-acceptable. Consequently there is a huge racial discrimination for mixed heritages and mixed couples. So on the outset, one can already see the problem that our protagonists are facing. A bear and a wolf don't mate. It makes an interesting love story.  Not very original though. Anyhow, the story-telling quality is still good. Also nice to hear about background follow-ups to characters and events in previous novels. I always liked that. Nicely links-in this novel with the others. On the whole, I gave this book a 3.5 out of 5.

Cover Art: I thought I was having a deja vu when I saw Born Of Night. Does the two cover arts look the same to you? Or am I just being crossed-eyed?

It seems that Elora's Cave tactics is catching... recycling models :)

Hellchasers: Also in Bad Moon Rising is where I first heard about the Hellchasers. I presume this would be another Dark Hunter off-shoot series just like the WereHunter and the Dream Hunter serieses. Different threads on the same world. I guess it does make a variety. Keeps it from being boring. Or is the Dark Hunter world getting a bit too crowded?

About Bad Moon Rising:
Fang Kattalakis isn't just a wolf. He is the brother of two of the most powerful members of the Omegrion: the ruling council that enforces the laws of the Were-Hunters. And when war erupts among the lycanthropes, sides must be chosen. Enemies are forced into shaky alliances. When Aimee, the woman Fang loves, is accused of betraying her people, her only hope is that Fang believes in her. Yet in order to save her, Fang must break the law of his people and the faith of his brothers. That breech could very well spell the end of both their races and change their world forever. The war is on and time is running out...
