Revenge has no limits.
Special Agent Matthew Roarke has abandoned his rogue search for serial killer Cara Lindstrom. He’s returned to the FBI to head a task force with one mission: to rid society of its worst predators. But now in the new, highly polarized political landscape, the skeletal symbols of Santa Muerte, “Lady Death,” mysteriously appear at universities...more
If you'd like to answer some questions about the series, my producers and I are very interested in reader feedback on the books and characters. You can find the questionnaire here:
And I'm outlining Book 6, which I'm intending to be the end of the books, although my producers may have something to say about that. :) It will be out next year.
But women are starting to fight back. When the Cheeto-in Chief makes his nomination to the Supreme Court, Bitch decides to retaliate, and they ain't happy. In fact you could say they are "mad as hell" and "aren't going to take it anymore.” The group of women ...more
Phenomenal! Ms. Sokoloff knocked it out of the park with her latest installment of the Huntress Moon series.
In Hunger Moon, the author takes on the horrific rape culture permeating our country. She also brings to the surface such startling facts such as there is a greater than 90% chance a rapist will never pay for his actions. This book was written in 2017, during the first year of our new government elected in late 2016. Ms. Sokoloff has well described the darkness and the fear ...more
Hunger Moon is a fast faced, edge of your seat, FBI thriller by Alexandra Sokoloff. Long ago I read FBI thrillers and spy novels but quit cold turkey after Ruby Ridge and the War on Terror. I realized that these books were nothing more than glorified propaganda and I wasn't that stupid. Now comes Sokoloff with FBI agents that are as conflicted about the current state of world affairs as most of us. They believe in the law, they believe in doing right but how does one do that ...more
To appreciate the full impact of Hunger Moon though I really feel that you need to have read the previous books. So much in the stories now depends on knowing and understanding the main characters especially Cara Lindstrom. Without background knowledge I am not sure how she would come across to a new reader.
To say this book is exciting is an understatement. Several different plot lines occur simultaneously leading up to the thrilling finale. The ...more
I wanted a continuation of the Roarke and Cara story. Instead, the book was mainly a political commentary that blamed "rape culture" on the President of the United States. It went just too far -- "the end of the world" -- really? Rape was not happening before the election?
I read for escapism and good story telling. I don't need author bias and personal ...more
In a shock felt round the world, a man with an overabundance ...more
It is highly recommended that you read these books in sequence as the storyline continues on from where book one leaves off.
The novels in this FBI thriller series include:
Huntress Moon (Book 1) Published 2012
Blood Moon (Book2) Published 2013
Cold Moon. (Book3) ...more

Entire Series ON SALE, each 99 CENTS !!!!
Alexandra Sokoloff is at it again... but with a very decided twist...
Think about the political climate...the division of a country where there is a culture of hurting women and nothing is being done...Or at least not enough....
A rising of a group... a flavor similar to Anonymous, only female...
With those who feel the need to fight back deeply...
Crossing the barriers and lines ...more
All the books before this one held that wickedness at their centre, the vigilante Cara Lindstrom fighting back, with knives and deadly energy, against the most brutal forms of male on female violation. Yet before now it's ...more
Respect, Alexandra Sokoloff, my respect to you!
This story is one big ugly trigger.
Rape. Rasicm. Misogyny. Violence. Rape.
It has a very strong political background, which I won't touch. Many governments, many countries 'live' this ugliness. It was, it is and it will be, if we won't stop it.
I wish this was a dystopia, but it wasn't for the most part.
Alexandra Sokoloff tells the stories most are disinclined to tell and in her main series protagonist Cara, has created an incredibly sympathetic strong female character who, rather than grey area's has so many colours you may get blinded.
This instalment, as all the others, is pacy, considered and hard hitting - with a side dose of reality and an authentically twisted view of the world. It is unusual to be honest to find novels that you can refer to as "proper ...more
This one is more political than the previous books and focuses on what is happening under the present administration in the USA today. Roarke and Lindstrom are now on different paths. Girls are being raped in colleges and the whole attitude around this culture is delved into pretty deeply here.
Meanwhile, Lindstrom has her own problems with an old enemy coming to the fore once again.
I will start this review for Hunger Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff by saying that I took way to many notes and would spoil the book if I shared them all. I loved it so much, and I got so carried away because my emotions were running riot, that I feel like ranting and railing.
I love that we have action from the opening pages and I would recommend passing by the girl with the dark hair and backpack, if your intentions are evil.
The 'Bitch' fightback is in full swing, more and more women are fighting back against the establishment. In addition to Roarke's conflict of interest with Cara, Epps and Singh both have to juggle with a profession v personal morals dilemma which adds more ...more
I will definitely go back and read the series from the beginning. A fantastic read that I highly recommend. 4 stars.
I have read all the huntress books and have enjoyed them..this book was SO politically slanted that I could not finish it..I read this series because I enjoyed the suspense and characters. I didn't expect to get preached to about the current political environment or about how evil our current president is...those things should be kept on the op-ed pages not in a suspense novel
This book is set in the dystopian world of contemporary America, and the political background and context plays a huge role in the story. Cara and Roarke are back on separate paths both still fighting in their own ways against the predators of this world. Others from the previous books are also back, doing their thing, on both sides of the law.
I like the mixing in of supernatural beliefs and gritty and ...more
I wouldn't call this a murder mystery book as such, somewhat closer to urban fantasy in some ways. I honestly can't quite pin down what category this book would fit in. It is well written, engrossing and engaging. The ...more
My jury is out on some of the politics in this, which got a bit preachy at times. In the acknowledgements at the tail end, the author discusses why she wrote the politics. The timeline of the book occurs during the Presidential elections that see Donald Trump become president. Many of the underlined passages in the book reflect a common female mindset when ...more
I suggest starting with ...more
Wow this book blew me away, but I have to say you really needed to read the books in order. Otherwise you would find it hard to really understand Cara’s motivation.
This book was more of a bigger picture, overall what was going on in the country and how it affected normal people.
I was riveted in the story, and the way it played out. This is not for the fainthearted, but if you have read the rest of the books in this series you will know what to expect. ...more
So this fifth book of the series was anxiously anticipated. It was super disappointing ...more
Several previous reviewers gave Hunger Moon a low rating because they felt that the book included too much of the ...more
I’m going to start this review by saying DO NOT read this as a standalone; this is meant to be read as a series to have a full understanding. If you read as a standalone much of it will not make sense to you and you are missing out on something incredibly powerful!
This is a ...more
