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
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
Leigh is one of the best Jager-Sucher (were-wolf killers) but inside she has lost her will to do anything but seek revenge. She is happily killing wolves in Canada when her boss sends her to a small town because something odd is happening here. The werewolves are killing each other which cannot be right. When she arrives in town she meets Jessie and Will (Blue Moon) and our leading man Damien. The problem is now Leigh has found how broken and cut off she is but can she warm up to new friends or ...more

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

Hunter's Moon is the second book in the Night Creature series. It's a tale about a secret society of werewolf hunters dedicated to ridding the world of werewolves. Werewolves are monsters created by Nazi experiments and were unleashed en masse towards the end of the second World War.

The heroine is Leigh Tyler, ex-kindergarten teacher, ex-perky blonde and now a Jager-Sucher, a hunter of werewolves. She is driven by the terrible memory of the slaying of her entire family and fiance by a werewolf.
Chadwick Saxelid
Leigh Taylor is a hunter, a Jager-Sucher; a killer of werewolves, in the simplest of terms, and is one of the best there is. She has been given an assignment to train Jessie McQuade, Sheriff of Crow Valley, Wisconsin, on how to hunt and kill werewolves and stay alive to be able to do so again. Taylor is not happy with the assignment, she prefers to "work alone." But that happiness turns to confusion when she meets the mysterious and moody Damien Fitzgerald. Leigh is drawn to this man that is as ...more
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 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.
Rebecca (Bec)
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
Michelle Tempted By Books
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
Fallon Farmer
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
I expected more of an exciting werewolf story than a romance. This book is basically 95% romance with just a little bit f werewolf action thrown in.
I'm a big fan of kick ass heroines, and Leigh fit the bill. It kept me entertained.
Lisa Lenox
Fairly predictable plot, but Handeland's characters are unique and fun.
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

Liked the characters better this time, building a neat dynamic with the team of hunters.
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

Enjoyed this series. Loved the characters.
Slow to start but a great ending
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.
