I wanted to write well elaborated review of this one but the way I’m going with the series (currently I’m on #4 of the series), it is difficult.

It is re-read, so it is enough proof that I like it very much. This is story of Leigh (the Jager-Suchers agent) and werewolf love interest Damien.



I found few repeated sentences when I compared with 1# but that is okay, it’d be okay if someone decides to read it stand-alone. But I’d recommend to read in sequence.

So a long time ago (9-12 years), I read the first book, Blue Moon, in this series. I vaguely remember enjoying it, but apparently never moved on to the next book. Subsequently I started Handeland's Phoenix Chronicles, but never finished it out either. Last summer, I read In the Air Tonight for BSB, loved it and realized characters appearing toward the end of the book were tied to the Nightcreature series. Since then, this series has been on my mind and I decide I would give it another try this y ...more

After the 2nd installment of this series, I'm still feeling the same way. I liked it, better story than the first and wasn't as slow as the first but my problem is the H/H. The H/H really don't seem to have much of a connection. It's more like lust then all of a sudden 3/4 way thru the book, they profess their love, just like that. There's wasn't any build up and I didn't feel any emotional tie between these two.

Another problem is are the sex scenes. They're WAY too short in my opinion. I'm used

The Book: Hunter’s Moon by Lori Handeland

The Particulars: Paranormal romance, St Martin’s, available both in print and e-book

Why was it in my TBR? Because I like Lori Handeland’s contemporaries.

Longtime Jager-Sucher Leigh is coerced by Edward into training Jessie (from ‘Blue Moon’) which means heading to Crow Valley, Wis. where piles of dead wolves (werewolves) have been found. Jessie, and Cadotte, are already there looking into the problem.

Once there, Leigh starts having flashbacks and nightmares about when her family had been slaughtered and eaten by a white wolf and his pack, leading to her becoming a hunter. She also finds herself attracted to and living in an apartment above the

I enjoyed this story of Leigh and Damien. They were both very human, flawed, yet struggling to make something of their tragedies. The passion is hot and steamy as in all the Handeland's I've read so far. The plot too is well thought out. A good offering for the genre.

Re-read 03/11/2015. Coming back to this after so long made me realise why I enjoy Handeland's narrative of myth and legend turned into interesting supernatural romance. The myth of the Power Eater is a chilling one, combining the ev

Was very much like the first book, sometimes slightly better, but a huge disappointment. After the horrible first novel, I gave this and the third novel a chance, because my main problem was the heroine, Jessie.

Unfortunately the heroine in this book, Leigh, is just like Jessie. The plot was just a little better, mostly because it offered a background-story. Now, what's wrong with the guys in Handeland's books? It seems they all say the same stuff. 'Waited for you all my life blah' and 'If you w

Well, because of the enthusiasm of the first book I expected a very good continuation. But the book disappointed me very much.

The beginning of the book is similar to the first one, but in this part it was a big problem of the similarities. Often you think that you read the first book and it seems as the author hadn’t a idea for this book and write it down without any new thoughts. The story has not many suspenses and the erotic scene are very thin and sketchy, too.

The flashbacks for the dead of

Another great installment of the Night Creatures series!! I love how the author uses Ojibwe history, tales and ceremonies to create a plot base that is completely unique. The book started off a little slow, as did "Blue Moon" (Nightcreatures #1). We are introduced to a new character, Leigh who has been hunting werewolves for several years for a government organization called the Jager-Sucher Society. She has been sent to a small town in Wisconsin to help train Jessie, the town Sherriff and her l ...more

I liked this book better than Blue moon. It has actually convinced me to get the next book in the series.

It is a nice easy read, still not alot of heart to it but more than Blue Moon. I actually found myself getting to know Jessie and Will (the main characters in Blue Moon) alot better, and it wasn't even their book. I really liked story it was a little less predictable I and thought that Damien and Leigh were pretty damn cool.

One thing I'm not used to is the negative speal on warewolves. These

I was expecting more out of this book because I liked the first one in this series (Blue Moon) so much. I think that this book had too much sex in it. I know there was sex in the first one also but it just seemed like this one went a little overboard.

That said I still liked the story. I liked the character Leigh, she showed what I think most powerful women feel, that there is a soft side to them also (no matter how much they try to cover it up). I liked that Jessie was still a part of this book.

Hold a grudge much? The female lead in the book has decided revenge will be her mission in life. How long can you have nothing in your life but anger? To be honest I would think its plausible given her back-story but it makes for a not very likable character. So Leigh is sent to small town Wisconsin to solve the "wolf" problem. Enter Damien Fitzgerald, an enigma wrapped in a mystery. He seems to be hiding an awful lot, not to mention he seems to be in all the wrong places at all the wrong times. ...more

Der 362 Seiten lange zweite Band der Night Creatures Reihe von Lori Handeland ist ebenso furios wie Wolfskuss. In Wolfsgesang wird nach und nach die Geschichte von Leigh Tyler erzählt, die sich durch die Geschehnisse in Wisconsin mit ihrer eigenen Vergangenheit auseinandersetzen muss.
Der Leser trifft auch alte Bekannte in diesem Band wieder. Und die neuen Charaktere - Leigh und Damien - sind vielschichtig und spannend. Und wer ist Damien überhaupt? Wird er es schaffen, die kaltschnäuzige Leigh z

I really did like this book. It started out slow enough and didn't think I would get to far, but then the plot thickened, as they say, and held my interest from that point. This is about Leigh, who is a werewolf hunter, and has been called to a small town in Wisconsin to help the local sheriff battle the abnormal amount of werewolves there. She meets up with Damien Fitzgerald who is also a werewolf but Leigh doesn't know it. She knows she is attracted to him but in her kind of work she doesn't h ...more

Again love this book from Lori Handeland. There are two characters here that made me laugh between there smart retorts to each other not wanting the other to know that they they really like the other as a friend. Leigh and Jessie really cracked me up. But Leigh and Damien are really great. The chemistry that they share each knowing they can't tell the other anything truthful about theirselves but at the same time having this physical attraction to each other. The story and plot was also again so ...more

Like the Dirk & Steele books, this series focuses on a different romantic pair of characters, while sometimes including people from previous books. This one still had Jessie and Will in it a lot, although the new star was Leigh. I did not like Leigh's character as much as I liked Jessie's, but it was still a good story, although I do kind of see a pattern forming. It's only the second book, so we'll see where it's going. Plus its fun to see how many Ojibwe words I can recognize. There's not ...more

I didn't care at all for the main female character, Leigh Tyler. She was rude, plain and simple. I guess I was supposed to feel sorry for her because her family was eaten by werewolves, but whatever. The other female, Jesse McQuade from the first book in the series, was equally unlikeable. Once again we have an author who attempted to write strong, independent female characters and failed miserably. On the other hand, I found the main male character, Damien Fitzgerald, intriguing. I really wish ...more

I haven't read the first book in the series and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to enjoy this book. Lori Handeland did a good job of making it easy to simply pick up the second book in a series and not feeling like you're on the outside looking in.

I loved that it wasn't a typically werewolf story. There were added elements of legends brought in and that, for me, made it more than just a simple story of "girl likes boy, girl doesn't know that boy is werewolf, girl kills werewolves for a li

Leigh reminded me of Laurell K. Hamilton's protagonist Anita Blake, but unlike Anita Blake, whose backlash and banter were witty and only against one particular person, Leigh was just annoying. She backlashed against everybody, bickered constantly, and often reminded herself of her past. A lot of the time I wanted to slap her across the face and tell her to shut up and move on.

There were a few problems with this book. First of all I felt that I was reading the first book in the series all over again. It was very similar to the first in the series. It felt like the story was just repeating itself but with different characters. A lot of similar lines like the first book. I liked the guy but for some reason I really couldn't get into the girl character. She wasn't my favorite character.

This was a great follow-up to Blue Moon, Book 1 in this series. This book continues where Blue Moon left off; however, it was narrated by a new protagonist, Leigh, a wolf hunter out for revenge, who was not in the previous book. The main characters from Blue Moon are still in this book, which was nice. It was interesting to see them from the perspective of Leigh this time around.

Loads of action in this very good romance. We are used to the werewolves in most books being the good guys, not in this one. There is 1good one but I wont spoil it by saying who it is. This is a story about werewolf hunter. She wants to kill every one she can find as revenge for one killing her family. The one that killed her family wants her as his mate.

I think the only thing that kept me from loving this was the idea that the guy will never age and the female will and they can't have babies - her dream. Not really a HEA...
Or, Maybe, since she is the first to take the serum and she was a werewolf for awhile they can mate, have babies and she will not age???
