Long Night Moon

ISBN13: 1230000033854
Pages: 183 (E-book)

Something is killing innocent people around Rylie Gresham's town. The police think it's a wild animal, but she has other suspicions. There are new kids at school, and they have a lot in common with her: gold eyes, super strength, and a habit of turning furry. It seems Rylie's not the only werewolf around anymore.
It's up to Rylie and her werewolf-hunting boyfriend, Seth, to stop the killings. But saving lives doesn't come naturally to a monster, and territory battles could risk the life of her sickly aunt--not to mention her own. Rylie has no choice but to stand her ground, protect her home, and stop the murderers before anyone else gets hurt.

Hey guys! Welcome to the third and second to last book in the Seasons of the Moon Quartet! Slowly making my way through the reviews. :) Anyway, I don't have much to say so let's get right into it!

Like All Hallows Moon did with Six Moon Summer, Long Night Moon picks up relatively where the previous book left off. Rylie is somewhat in more control over her wolf. Or that is what she thinks. Suddenly, there are dead people popping up all over the town and it's attracting hunters. Long Night Moon introduces some new wolves which in my opinion was a much needed addition. Welcome Levi and Bekah. They're also wolves, but they're different then the vicious beasts that turned Rylie. They also have the ability to shift on command which means these kids got some mega control over the wolves. Of course, they're new and something's killing people so it places them on the top list of suspects.

Bekah and Levi claim that they're innocent and say that they are here to bring Rylie to a werewolf sanctuary that teaches WW (werewolves) to control their wolf and resist the hunger that comes with being a full time carnivore. Rylie and Seth are wary of them, but they seem innocent enough.

Everything definitely becomes faster paced and more action packed then the last book. You find out that Rylie isn't the only werewolf out there and establishes sort of a "pack like" family for her. Not at the beginning though, but at the end. There is also a lot more drama because people are literally ending up dead pretty much everywhere and it doesn't look very pretty. Out of the three books, this one definitely scores for most action packed. 

There is also a ton of character development in Rylie which I think was needed. The first book she was this angry girl who got turned into a wolf. The second book she was an angry girl over the struggle to control her wolf and establish a relationship with Seth. In this book, you see her wolf instincts really kick in and while she's still this angry girl, there's also a huge part of her that's warring. When you read it, you'll know what I mean.

The ending was I admit, not expected, but it leads very well into the last book of the series. This is definitely not a book to skip because there's a ton of information that is vital to the last book and really concretely establishes the relationship in the story. So I definitely recommend this if you're into the series and if you haven't started, the first book is always a great place to start!

“So what, you assumed you’d show up before the dance and I’d magically be ready to go? I need a warning to get beautiful.” 

Never talk to them when they’re human, or they’ll trick you. You’ll get confused and sympathetic. That was what his mom always said. She was probably right. Last time he talked to a werewolf, he ended up dating her.”
3 out of 5 stars
