Whew! I was happy with Bad Moon Rising, and kind of surprised. The last couple books in this series have kind of been lacking. I’ve been anticipating Fang and Aimee’s romance for months.

I was really interested in getting to know the Peltier bears. They’ve been mentioned so many times, but we really don’t know much about them. Since we know Fang is wolf, and Aimee is bear, how will they be able to be together? Is their a chance the Fates would make them mates?

The book starts a few years back, pr
Aimee and Fang's story - and the thickest one since "Acheron".

One of my favorite Dark-Hunter novels so far. The romance with this one stretched over a long period of time, therefore you were more invested in their happily ever after. It was also nice to see the rewind and earlier events in the series retold from Fang's point of view.

Makes me want to reread Vane's story, and maybe Wren's and Fury's. Was Fury's story a short? I've lost track.

Great read. I still say Sherrilyn Kenyon is the queen o

I have been waiting for " Bad Moon Rising " with anticipation for a while to finally read the story of Fang Kattalakis ( wolf ) and Aimee Peliteir ( Bear )with the expectation it would be a type of Romeo & Juliet story,and was so thilled, me and a few of my friends treked down to where she was signing the new release.
I have very mixed feelings about this book after reading it, in fact I was disappointed with the story as a whole. SK is a wonderful writer so she had me reading untill the very
Throughout the series, it was pretty much a given that Aimee and Fang would end up together, and they finally did! However, the path to true love never runs smoothly, and our intrepid heroes have to endure much to reach their HEA.

This book definitely isn't a stand-alone, but really the only ones you need to read to understand what's going on in this book are Night Play and Unleash the Night. On top of revisiting a lot of the favorite characters (okay, all of the characters; was that really neces
Another great installment in the Dark-/Dream-/Were-Hunter saga!

The story of Aimee, Fang and their impossible love has been long in the making, from the almost very beginning of the series, but it's been definitely worth the wait.

As much as this was mostly a solid paranormal romance, Kenyon-style, of course, I loved the fact she decided to delve a little deeper than the usual Daimon/Dark-Hunter/Were-Hunter dealings.
We've wondered if it was at all possible for two different species of Weres to "mi

when i read the initial reviews of this book i didn't know what to expect. after i read the book i found i didn't agree with most of them. seems like the common complaints were that there is a lot of rehashing. well yes, there is. we do read a lot of missing scenes from previous books. they were pretty much all either things we never got to see in the first part or told from a dramatically different point of view. it did not seem redundant at all. another complaint was that it took so long to ge ...more

After ordering the book from Amazon I went to read the reviews they had on there and quickly decided that I made a mistake buying the book since most of them said it was dull, awful, or repeated material. Well they were right about one thing. The out line of the story was already known to me since, the lead characters were involved in the 18 other books of this series. What I as a reader didn't know were the details behind it. And you know what they say about the devil being in the details right ...more
This book was not as good as the others. I feel that she needed to have a better proof reader, to catch all the time lapses and other issues I felt wear in this book. She failed to mention Katrina as well as keep a accurate time table during the story. Fang and Aimee's story starts in '03 and doesn't concluede until '09, that is 5 years worth of story line including the very BIG issue of Katrina which the author completely skipped. Didn't even mention. Not counting Fury mating, "Hello" when did ...more

Fang Kattalakis is one bad wolf. Having to protect his siblings from a vicious father and pack he's had to be. When he meets the only daughter to infamous Peltier Bear clan, he's instantly smitten and shocked at the same time. No one has touched him as much as Aimee Peltier and he finds himself helplessly drawn to her, even though he knows such an intermingling of species can never be.

Aimee can't believe the feelings the rough wolf wear-hunter arouses in her. She's always thought the wolves were

Bad Moon Rising by Sherrilyn Kenyon

A long time ago, when I first discovered romantic fiction, I found a Sherrilyn Kenyon book and was instantly hooked. What an imagination! The heady combination of intense, sexy, truly "heroic" heroes, her fascinating twist on mythology, and lots of lusty sex, fanned the flames of my romance addiction. Kenyon and Christine Feehan were my introduction to paranormal romance, and I could not get enough of their stuff.

Two of her books really stand out for me. Dance

Dare I say that I enjoyed this book just as much as Acherons? I think YES!

I think Ms. Kenyon did a most amazing job of telling Fang and Aimee's story. It was great how we got to see their relationship develop and how all those little snippets of the two of them from previous book were all worked into this one.

I had no idea that they knew each other before Fang was bought into Sanctuary and that Aimee was the one who saved him. That was a complete left fie

Wow, I felt like I was rereading bits and pieces of previous books from this series.





I am glad to finally know how the Aimee and Fang saga turned out, but this book should have come about 5 books ago and It would have gotten a def 4 star. I have had to endure these two angsting and pining after each other for so many books now only to have them do the same for 300 pages of their own book. True. They didn't seal the deal until about page 300. WTH?

This is just a public service announcement

Ora bem... nem sei dizer bem há quantos anos andava à espera de ler (finalmente!) a história entre Fang e Aimee (e aposto que não sou a única).
Este livro passa-se em simultâneo (e ultrapassa um pouco em termos temporais, também) ao O Abraço da Noite (Talon&Sunshine), Jogos na Noite (Vane&Bride) e À Solta na Noite (Wren&Maggie)... e isto não tem propriamente a ver com a minha opinião da história em si, mas acabei de me recordar do porquê de nunca ter apreciado os títulos desta saga es

Oh boy! I loved this one. I don't know what to say. There sure happened a whole lot, and there was barely any time to breathe in between everything that was going wrong! It all seemed like a quite hopeless situation and I was constantly aching for the characters--I even had tears streaming down my face at one point.

Gostei da história mitológica que está na base de cada personagem, bem-criada como sempre.

O universo deste livro é talvez um pouco diferente, pois trata não exactamente dos predadores da noite, apesar de eles aparecerem no livro, mas antes dos predadores do Homem. Fang é um predador do Homem que se transforma em lobo e quando ele e os seus irmãos vão ao Santuário, um bar em que tod

Fang and Aimee… FINALLY!!!

Their relationship between the hotheaded, sarcastic wolf and sweet, funloving bear has been hinted at in other books of the series, and now, finally we get their full story, and oh my God, was it intense! I can’t believe everything they went through! In all of the mentions of Fang and Aimee together in other books, there has always been this sense of forbidden love about them, and now, given the chance to get inside their heads and see their story play out, do we realis

This is one of my favorites in this series……loved the book title!!!!

Okay, that’s not the only thing I loved about Fang & Aimee’s love story!!! They are one of my fav characters in the fabulous world that the author has created.

This was so different! Why? Because considering Aimee and Fang's story started a long time ago, the book as well went through a series of event that we already knew of.

We find out how they actually met (and it was sweet), how Anya died and why their (Kattalakis) pack was slaughtered/attacked/beaten...take your pick.

It actually goes thorugh Vane's story and his mating and then sometimes Wren's story is in there too. And then Thorn is there, I mean it's the first appearance of the Hellchasers in
Ok - this book was a hot mess. Some good, some bad.

The book covered YEARS. Many years! Which was very confusing at times since it was not always clear. Most of the book took place during a time period already covered in other books. Many of the events and some if the conversations were already in other books. So for me it was boring at times. Sometimes it was interesting seeing the "other side" of a scene or convo, but mostly I was bored.

IMO, this is not a romance. There is very little romance
I'm being generous with my stars tonight because it's almost Christmas. What the hell. Also, I have loved Fang and Aimee for a long time and have been waiting for their story.

Yes, the guy's name is Fang. That wasn't a typo. I think his mom wanted to name him after her favorite astronaut drink, but had a lisp...

He's a werewolf, so this is a photo of his actual mother while caroling one Christmas.

Not my favorite, but still overall happy with the plot.

When I picked up this book, I was so excited that I finally got around to reading Fang and Aimee's story. I went into the book with very high expectations, but unfortunately, it turned out to be something opposite of what I was hoping it would be, not with the whole story but just some parts of it. And that made me a little sad. I didn't say or mean that it was bad or disappointing or anything. The romance between them just wasn't the

Sherrilyn Kenyon, a rainha do paranormal. Desde o primeiro dia em que a li, em Janeiro de 2010, que fiquei com a sensação que estava perante uma das escritas com maior desenvoltura e inteligência na forma como apresentava e fazia evoluir tantos os personagens como o enredo global que os vais ligando uns aos outros. Sendo este o décimo oitavo romance que leio dela, já bateu qualquer record de autor mais lido por mim e nem sempre sou uma leitora fácil. Mais, acho que manter uma linha condutora dur ...more
