In this first book in a wildly addictive new series, a battle begins and one kick-ass female bartender turned demon fighter is ready for war
I’m Dana Markovitz. And my world is shifting.
My experience with the paranormal community was a good one, pouring shots in the creature-friendly pit stop where I tend bar. Until last night.
Worst. Date. Ever.
A hookup with a vampire ended in a scratch from a jealous were-cat. Surprise! I caught a cat-shifting virus. I should be immune. Or so I’ve always been led to believe.
For some reason the infection has riled a demon underworld that apparently knows more about my secret past than I do. They aren’t thrilled with me. In fact, they want me dead.
At least I have one normal male on my side. Relatively normal. I think he’s on my side.
Tell you one thing. There’s no way I’m being put down like a feral stray. I may not know who to trust, but I’ll be damned if I’m not fighting back. Hell, my claws are already starting to show.
Mark of the Moon was a good 3.5 star read.
This is definitely a different storyline than I’m used to.
The first scene in the book is hot until a jealous were-cat interrupts the scene. Dana is scratched during the incident and she starts to feel different sensations. Dana will have to wait until the full moon to see if she will shift.
There are so many people trying to come after Dana. She’s not sure who she can trust.
There is one torture scene that really made me cringe, ew.
So many ways this could go, so few of them good.
I have to say that the sex scenes were panty melting hot. A few things really threw me, I wasn’t sure what was reality at times. There is so much more to this read that I don’t want to give away. Secrets are revealed with some twists. There are some very interesting characters that were new to me. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. I did like Jon, who doesn’t like a hot vampire. Beth Dranoff does a great job with her storytelling, there was so much going on. I look forward to reading more from her.
