Abel is struggling to find his footing at the werewolf sanctuary when he receives terrible news: the girl he loves and his brother have vanished. Seth calls to claim that they're eloping, but Abel knows it's a lie. There's no way that Rylie would get married without telling him. Not when the memory of her scorching kiss is still burning on his lips.

To see my full review:

I highly enjoyed this third installment of the Cain Chronicles, the spinoff novellas of the wonderful Seasons of the Moon Series. Moon of the Terrible focuses more so on Abel than the previous novellas (I’d say New Moon Summer is mainly about Rylie and her feelings and Blood Moon Harvest is mainly about Seth and his, so it just makes sense that Moon of the Terrible focuses mainly on Abel). Abel has had it rough. From being a hunter and hater of werewo

I have to say right off the bat that I am a huge fan of this author and this series. It all begins with Seasons of the Moon books one through four and then continues on with the Cain Chronicles, which are very short vignettes continuing the story with the primary characters and short adventures. In this installment Rylie and Seth have been kidnapped and Able sets out to rescue them. It is in my opinion very well written and was a great short. However, it must be said that without reading the ...more

The Cain Chronicles mark a turning point for Rylie and everyone around her. She may be the Alpha and her wolf may be stronger than any one else’s but she still had human drama to deal with. Since I skipped this series and went right to the Ascension series before I even finished the Seasons of the Moon series, I was a little confused about how the Rylie, Seth, Abel triangle actually happened. This series clears everything up. Up until now, I didn’t really like Abel – Moon of the Terrible was my ...more

I so hope Levi gets what is coming to him as he is an upstart who wants to be alpha yet doesn't deserve the title, taunting Abel about Riley, so immature and annoying. The introduction of Crystal is interesting, she reminds me of the cheerleader types at school who think their looks will get them everywhere but she has some tough competition if she wants Abel for herself. Seriously what is it with Eleanor, she just won't stay dead and I thought vampires were hard to kill but she takes it to a ...more

Oooookay. So those things that were coming, they're here. And it's not good. And even when it could potentially be good, it's not good. Everybody's in a pickle! Cain's identity is revealed, Seth and Abel's mom just won't stay down and Rylie is floundering.

What does this mean for the pack? I have no idea. Levi's actions against Abel don't bode well. The ominous hints of what Cain and his crew have planned for the werewolves at the sanctuary are even worse. Rylie's so twisted up with everything th

Moon of the Terrible will leave you guessing up till near the end of the book wondering who Cain is. It’s not who you think it is till the very end of the book along with finding out that something is wrong with Rylie.

It takes place where Blood moon Harvest left off. With Seth and Rylie captured, Abel and everyone else doesn’t realize this until a strange call from Seth leaves Abel knowing something is wrong. Glad to leave the sanctuary after putting Levi in his place Abel and Three other wolve

Oh Jeez **eyeroll**, there must not be any other woman on the face of the Earth, except his brothers...I'm so tired of reading about love triangles between brothers.

Good thing the storyline is a good one, or I would have deleted these series two books ago...and don’t get me started with the pregnant idiot, you don’t know what Cain meant? Really Rylie? Stop. It.

Moon of the Terrible by S.M. Reine is the third book in the Cain Chronicles. It is very well written with and exciting story line. As Alpha, Rylie must learn to be a bit stronger, but she remains more nurturing. The suspense and intrigue is woven intricately through the characters. Whom shall they trust?

Lots of stuff going on in this book - learning more about werewolves, crazy family secrets, love triangles, and of course, hunters. I'm just as torn as Rylie is between Seth and Abel though I'm not sure how long Rylie can ignore her wolf nature.

I kind of predicted that the ending was going to happen after their run in with Cain. I'm interested to finish the series, and see how Seth takes the info she's about to tell him. Although, I predict that she will choose Abel.

I am really liking this series can't wait for the next one after that ending. My only complaint is I wish that Seth or Abel wouldn't save her, I want her to do the saving. Considering she gets her fair share of butt kicking it's a minor complaint. Go team Abel!

Another good, quick installment in this series. I'm still on team Abel for some reason, even though I'm pretty sure he's a jerk. I have also figured out the mystery of Cain sometime around the end of book 1. I'm more interested in the brother drama, of course!

Chapter 3 (and it really should be a chapter!)

Full of action once again, with things deepening between Abel and Rylie. Rylie still has feelings for Seth though so is getting more confused by the day. Lots of action in this book and you find out who Cain is.

Good but way too short.

Unbelievably good

This series is GREAT, I definitely recommend it. Now I'm on to the next book in this series. I just wish they were longer. Each book is only a little over an hour.

I got books 1-4 together, as I am coming in late to the series. This book is a wild ride from 1-4. All adventures, all the time. I am very happy to have found a new werewolf series.

Jesus! I certainly didn't really expect that, I'm assuming the baby would be Abel's because they were 'mated' kind of. This series is certainly keeping me on my toes. HOLY HECK!

Ok so we now know who Cain is and we know how messed up this situation is becoming. But two pink lines are making me wonder who's the daddy?
