Cat was the only surviving victim. Roarke had no idea where she is, or if she is dead or alive. But she has killed thirteen men that he knew of, probably many more, including one of his own team. It was his job to arrest her and he was very good at his job.

After thoroughly enjoying Huntress Moon, the first book in this series, I just had to move on to book #2, Blood Moon. From what I’ve seen so far, it appears each of these books close out the main storyline, or at least get to an acceptable stopping point, but maintain a major core thread that travels throughout the entire series. All I can say is that I’m glad I waited to start this series until all the books (I think) were available.

Why do I read books before the series is finished!?!? Now I have to wait to find out more!

With these books I really think you have to read them in order. Starting with this one rather than Huntress Moon would make you miss so much of what's going on that I can't imagine liking the story as much.

May contain spoilers from book one:

Blood Moon by talented author Alexandra Sokoloff, is Book II in the Thriller Award-nominated Huntress/FBI series. Blood Moon is the sequel to Huntress Moon. These books keep getting better and better! I am hooked on this series! So good!

It is highly recommended that you read these books in sequence as the storyline continues on from where book one leaves off.

This was a fantastically wild ride! This series is filled with thrills and chills and leaves you wanting more. I didn't think it possible but I actually enjoyed this one even more than the first one although I wished there had been more of Cara. She is such a complex character and I couldn't help but feel a strong, positive connection to her despite not even being able to adequately imagine what she's gone through.

This is proving to be an excellent little series! I am not sure how I came across it now but I am very glad I did. It is unusual in that one of the main characters and the love interest is a murderer. And the guy who loves her is the cop. So I am not sure where it is actually going to end up but it is really fun finding out! I read this book in more or less one day and did not want to put it down. The author writes well and the action is very well paced. Add in a very nasty serial killer and you ...more

I thought that this book was very well done. This is the second book in the Huntress/FBI Thrillers series which is a series that really does need to be read in order. This book picks up shortly after the events in the first installment in the series with Special Agent Roarke still trying to capture Cara. I was quickly pulled back into this ongoing story and had a really good time with it.

Rosa, really

Just like the first book, Blood Moon is really silly & really entertaining.

What made it even sillier is the narrator. He's good but he has such a serious cop voice, like a more emotive Joe Friday...

...that I found myself giggling while Roarke, our super good looking FBI hero, comforts a child prostitute. Nice, Rosa.

Cara Lindstrom - Santa Muerte.

Amazing woman!

I don't care what they say and how the 'label' her - she kills abhorrent garbage such as paedophiles, rapists, human traffickers.
She should NOT be hunted, but encouraged!

There was this small male character, aka FBI agent Roarke. Well, I wouldn't feel sorry, if he disappeared. Can't stand him. All words, little action.
And this one is trying to hunt my lovely Cara? 🤣🤣🤣

Yep, they put her in jail at the end - I don't even worry, she will escape/set free
I read this book to fill the Free Space square of my 2018 Halloween Bingo card.

Bloody hell, what a good book! Make it 4.25 or 4.4 stars or something of that sort. An intriguing mash-up of the FBI profiler genre with a dash of the paranormal. Special Agent Matthew Roarke realizes that his morals have been compromised—he has come to identify with a woman who murders the men who prey on women. His partner is giving him the side-eye, not entirely trusting his judgement anymore, but his team still se

Great series!!!

I loved the first book in this series and moved right into reading this one seconds after finishing book one. A female serial killer that is more of a vigilante. Pedophiles, human traffickers, pimps & other predators beware! The FBI is determined to bring her in before she kills again. That doesn't stop her from hunting those that hunt kids & females.

Blood Moon is the sequel to Huntress Moon. I can't say too much about this because really the storyline just continues on from where book one leaves off.

We have more of Special Agent Roarke in pursuit of Cara Lindstrom, a delicious anti hero, whose mission it is to see justice served in her own inimitable way. As an audience, it's wrong, but it's kind of right too.

Again, the book moves at a thrilling pace with enough tension and suspense to keep the pages turning long into the night. Ok, I admit

I am so excited to be back with Special Agent Matthew Roarke, kicking down doors and taking down the bad guys, as his hunt for Cara continues. I love action from the opening page, getting me fully invested in the story and Blood Moon has it in spades.

This book picks up where Huntress Moon, Book I, left off. It does fill in some blanks from the first book, but I will tell you now, I am so happy I started at the beginning. I don’t want to miss a thing and I don’t think you will either.

Holy crap that was a doozy. It started with a bang and went nuclear from there!

Roarke's team in the San Francisco FBI office are still hunting for Cara Lindstrom, the beautiful and enigmatic (but deadly) sole survivor of familicide 25 years ago when she was five years old. Now she hunts people who prey on the weak. Her latest victim is a nasty mean pimp. Roarke is conflicted. He knows she must be stopped but he can't bear the thought of her in prison.

Review: BLOOD MOON by Alexandra Sokoloff

Second in the Huntress/FBI thrillers series which commences with HUNTRESS MOON, BLOOD MOON continues this spookily spectacular saga in which a series of bloody unsolvable massacres a quarter of a century in the past reverberate in the present, presenting more killings, and danger for Assistant Special Agent in Charge Matt Roarke of the San Francisco FBI Office, a former profiler. Now it appears that the mass killer from twenty-five years ago has inexplicab
I don't recommend reading this before you read the first book, even though the major events are summarized adequately. You just won't understand the character dynamics.

The story from the first book continues, with The Huntress still at large and FBI agents Matthew Roarke and Damien Epps continuing their quest to find her. They're somewhat sidetracked when there are signs that The Reaper, the unknown person who massacred three families in California 25 years ago, may have resurfaced.

I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review and OMG if I could give this book 100 star ratings I would (but that would mess up my rating figures!). I am always curious as to whether authors can keep up the momentum when they write a series. Well Alexandra Sokoloff kept it up and then blew it out of the water!

In this book we are delving even deeper into Cara Lindstrom’s psyche. We learn a lot more about what haunts her and there is an undeniable connection between herself

I believe that the highest praise is afforded when someone changes your mind or cracks open a door into a world that you never knew existed. That's exactly what Alexandra Sokoloff did to me with her two most recent novels, Huntress Moon and Blood Moon. With two quick, dynamic strikes she has converted the unwashed heathen (that would be me) and made him a fan - not only of her own work but of the suspense genre.

Ms. Sokoloff writes with passion, power, and velocity. It is notoriously difficult fo

Good mystery.

Started out slow. Phase picked up, but sudden conversation changes made me stop and go back to listen again. Strong and stubborn characters, human trafficking. Five families brutally murdered, surviving five years old girl, from twenty five years ago determined to eradicate some evil people. Also find the reaper that is responsible to killing her family.

I am hooked and want to know so much more!!
Great lead characters and a lovely pace to the story that has you moving through the story quickly. It is great to see the conflicted feelings of Roarke and explore how the stories of hunter/huntress switch and the line between the two becomes blurred - who is hunting who?
Great build up and some great tense sequences.
Fantastic to know there are 3 more books in the series.

I am completely in love with the characters in this series, and it's become my favorite to push on unsuspecting friends, neighbors and people on the street. Blood-chilling suspense? Check. Sexy lead characters? Check. Having to check the lock on my front door three times while reading it in an over-lit house in case a crazed lunatic is thinking of coming in and stabbing me to death? Check!

Absolutely worth your time to read, people!

The second book of this series is just as suspenseful as the first! An FBI agent with a strange connection to a female killer, who are both trying to solve an infamous case from 25 years ago when families are being slaughtered again today.

Fast paced. Amazing writing. Looking forward to more!

I would recommend reading these books in order.

The killer who kills killers is almost becoming a trope these days, but no one does it as affectingly as Alex Sokoloff. The addition of the dedicated FBI agent who's simultaneously drawn to the beautiful vigilante, terrified of what she might do to him or others around him, and grimly determined to bring her in, gives this series a powerful charge.You won't be able to put it down. I couldn't.
