He questions whether it is accidental, especially after having seen a mysterious woman at the scene. After further investigation, he finds other supposed accidents and murders that included this woman being on scene. Roarke finds himself on a multi-state journey to track this woman and figure out w ...more

I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a well written and intelligent crime novel.
5 stars from me...and I can't wait for the next installment!

I liked that the author obviously did her research about serial killers and wrote not only a gripping book that kept me listening long into the night, but also a book that was accurately reflects this crime genre. All of the main characters were well developed and complex and I happy the author didn't make the killer all bad, instead I found myself confli

I picked Huntress Moon up because it was rated so highly, and I saw nothing in the reviews to dissuade me from giving it a try. I'm not one to suffer through a book; if it doesn't keep my interest after 30 or 40 pages, I put it down, or in the case of a digital, remove it from my shelf. Huntress Moon wasn't an "absolutely must" read that had me scrambling to get to it every night, but I found that I looked forward to reading it, and that if it came to reading or doing something else, I opted to ...more

I write terrible book reviews. I don't know what it is--perhaps I'm missing the critic's gene in my DNA, maybe I just can't pull the right combination of words out of my hurricane brain to be able to get the groove down properly.

But listen:

Huntress Moon is the best book I have read in a long, long time. From the first page to the last, I couldn't stop reading, and that, my friends, is something very rare. I lived in those characters and in those words, lived in them and never wanted to come out,

Having read Alex Sokoloff before and knowing a little about her background I can tell you a) she’s a damn good writer; b) as a former screenwriter she knows the ins and outs of constructing and telling a story in an efficient and effective fashion; c) she creates tension like a piano tuner with perfect pitch, stretching the strings of her story taut until they thrum in minor sevenths.

If you like thrills and chills that come lickety-split in a story that will keep you turning the pages well past

It’s been a long time since I was this riveted by a story. And not just any story, but a mystery thriller involving an FBI agent who tries to do the right thing, and a female serial killer who is his to catch. Sounds vague and too general I know, but once you start the story, believe me, you get sucked right in.
What drew me to this book was the author. Although I’ve only read one book by her so far-and that was a ghost story- it affected me. It kept me up at night just like this one did, it scar

Matthew Roarke, a special agent with the FBI, is in the midst of an investigation and while on his way to meet one of his undercover agents he notices a mysterious young woman on the opposite side of the road immediately before his agent is hit by an oncoming large semi truck. Roarke doesn’t believe in coincidences, especially since the woman has disappeared. He strongly suspects there’s more to this than meets the eye.

Since he was a boy, watching the news reports of a horrific massacre

Huntress Moon had been sitting in my TBR list for a while. Though highly recommended by a friend, I had been putting it off because I thought it was urban fantasy, which I haven't been in the mood for lately. In fact it turned out to be a crime thriller, and a good one. It has strong hint of dark supernatural forces, but PTSD developed by the mysterious young "huntress" after a horrible event in her childhood could explain that. There are in fact totally evil monsters in the story, but they are ...more

FBI agent Matthew Roarke sets off on a hunt to find the beautiful and mysterious blonde woman who was present at--and, Roarke thinks, responsible for--the death of one of his undercover agents. As he investigates, he begins to discover other grisly murders the mystery woman may have had a hand in, and finds that all of the victims were seriously bad apples of one kind or another. Meanwhile, the quarry herself has come to rest in the California coastal town of Pismo Beach, where she's drawn to a ...more

I enjoyed this although I did get a bit bogged down around the middle and was a little disenchanted with it and in no great rush to resume reading. It was a sudden ending at 85% and the remaining 15% were trailers of the author's other books.
It's about a female serial killer and that's quite rare so it was always going to pique my interest. I also have the sequel downloaded which I'm pleased about as I want to know what happens next. I liked her character and also the character of the lead detec

This is my first Alexandra Sokoloff book and I will read more. I review a lot of books but often have a hard time remembering particulars or expressing my thoughts well. But this book was quite the page turner.

I was intrigued by the description. A possible female serial killer? Woohoo! I think the characters were well developed and likable. The author's graying the line between good and evil - exceptional. She showed us enough of each character to decided for ourselves whether we wanted to be sy

A tense thriller/police procedural with excellent characters and page-turning plot line, intensely written. The male protagonist was well developed, thankfully free of major issues and focused on his job. Woven into the plot is an interesting relationship between him, as the FBI agent in charge of the case and the female protagonist he is pursuing.

The plot at times was a bit of a stretch for the imagination and the inconclusive ending was somewhat unsatisfying. Indications are this is the first

When I saw Huntress Moon on Netgalley, I thought why not give it a try! It’s not exactly the first genre I flock to on a bookshelf, but the premise of a female serial killer peaked my interest. At first I thought I was taking a literary journey through an urban fantasy, but boy was I wrong. Huntress Moon is a tried and true crime thriller. As someone who has worked in forensics, I do have to applaud Alexandra Sokoloff for her background research of serial killers. From someone who’s seen crime s ...more

Please note, Netgalley made this book available for review in anticipation of the release of the second book in the Huntress series. It is highly recommended that you read Huntress Moon before picking up the any subsequent books.

In Alexandra Sokoloff's novel "Huntress Moon", the reader is presented with a tale of the hunter and the hunted. At the beginning of the novel, FBI Agent Matthew Roarke is on his way to meet an undercover operative to discover what has been learned in the case against a

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**

Roarke is an FBI agent in San Francisco. Damien Epps is his right-hand man. Greer is an undercover agent that was supposed to meet Roarke but was killed by a semi. Roarke, Agent Wu, from another division, and Jay Harrison, a civilian, were witnesses to the accident. All three men noticed a blond-haired woman in black talk to Greer just before he stepped across the street. Something just doesn't seem right. Roarke had no basis to

Huntress Moon (The Huntress/FBI Thrillers Bk 1)

I received this egalley from NetGalley; originally published in 2012, Huntress Moon and Blood Moon (Book 2) are being republished this month.

FBI Agent Matthew Rourke watches the undercover agent he is supposed to meet killed by a truck as he crosses the street. Something about the death doesn't sit well with the agent, even though the truck driver is as horrified by what happened as everyone else. It is the woman who followed directly behind his u

This series is about a female serial killer haunted by monster and a FBI agent who is drawn to her since he was nine and the reason behind him becoming an agent.

She goes by my many names but at five years, she witnessed “monsters” killing her parents as well as her two older brothers and sisters one horrible night. She barely survived the brutal killings that left scars along her neck.

When FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a major criminal bust, he witnesses

My first exposure to the work of Alexandra Sokoloff, this novel is, in my opinion, perfectly paced, with wonderfully drawn characters and a plot that drew me in and didn't let go. I wanted more (and didn't hesitate to get the second book of this series, BLOOD MOON), but I was satisfied with the conclusion of this one and intrigued by what might happen to the characters down the road.

In this book, a woman is observed speaking to an undercover FBI agent moments before he meets with a fatal accide

I have just finished listening to the audio version of Huntress Moon that was narrated by R. C. Bray. The author, Alexandra Sokoloff, was kind enough to offer me a free copy of the audiobook. I am very happy that she did. It is a wonderful novel.

Huntress Moon begins when FBI agent Roarke is scheduled to meet with an undercover agent under his command. Seconds before their meeting, said agent gets killed by a truck. Roarke witnesses this and, just before his agent dies, spots a gorgeous woman say

Huntress Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff and Narrated by R.C. Bray is the first book in the Huntress Series.

FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is on the hunt for the rare Female Serial Killer.
From start to finish this book has no fluff and is pure excitement from the first word. Matthew Roarke is every bit the developed quality character as John Sandford's Lucas Davenport from the Prey Series. This first book in the Huntress series stands alone as one of the best FBI Mystery/Thrillers I have read in ye

I am a sucker for a good crime thriller, even more so when it involves the FBI and dips into behavioral analysis--which I find fascinating. I grabbed this book back in August for .99 cents on Amazon but didn't start reading it until I saw the sequel "Blood Moon" on offer for review at Net Galley. Once I finally picked it up, I couldn't put it down.

FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke of the organized crime unit in San Francisco gets a call from the undercover agent on his team wanting to meet. Comi

Wow. Fast-paced, breathless suspense thriller about an FBI agent on the hunt for the female serial killer who killed one of his undercover agents right in front of him. Roarke, the agent, has extensive - and soul-crushing - experience as a profiler of criminals, but this killer defies all his profiling experience - until he learns of the astonishing connection he shares with her and figures out the true purpose behind her string of killings.

Well-drawn, sympathetic characters who grabbed my inter

I did not enjoy Huntress Moon as much as i had anticipated i would. The story was very stop, start and i found myself bored a large portion of the time. I found it difficult to relate to the characters especially Special Agent Rourke. I found him pigheaded. My specific dislike of this character came from his interaction with the character Sebastian (the father of Jason); at the time of Jason's abduction, Rourke seemingly blamed Sebastian for what had happened. I got the feeling that Rourke had i ...more

This is easily one of the best crime novels I've read in ages. More exciting than a James Patterson (and more intelligent too), yet more fun than a Cornwell. I have no idea how the Huntress series hasn't become the next big thing (or the next cinema hit). I could not put HUNTRESS MOON down.

Agent Roarke gets what could only be translated as an emergency call from one of his undercover agents. He arrives at the designated meeting spot - just in time to see his agent be part of a freak accident. Wa

If you look up “thriller” in the dictionary, there’s a picture of this book cover. Well, there should be anyway. What a ride! Reads like a movie. Jumpstarts you like a needle in the heart. I loved everything about this book—the characters, the pacing, the smart writing. It’s one of those rare novels that are hard to put down. You don’t read this thing, you LIVE it.
Billie Hinton
A well-written, compelling novel. I think it might be Sokoloff's best yet - she has a gift for beautiful imagery as well as creating tales that keep the reader turning the pages. I almost never read first thing in the morning, but this book had me reaching for my Kindle when I woke up to see what happens next. That it's a series is very exciting!
Rebecca
Great thriller. Story is told in a very compelling manor. In addition to it being a great plot, the characters are all ones that I grew to really appreciate ... whether that was the FBI agent or the killer he was hunting. She is probably the most likable serial killer ever! Can't wait for the next book in the series!
Andrea Strickland
This is the first of Sokoloff's books that I have read and it is certain to not be the last. It look me a little while to get into the novel, but once I did I was hooked. The story is intriguing and captivating. It ends with a cliff hanger, so I am sure I will be starting Book #2 in the series soon.
