Dangerous magic, Undeniable lustful attraction, Demon worshiping psycho and dreams that suck you in and become real.

Edge of the Moon is an interesting novel in the Moon series. It does not surround the werewolf story, although Ross does take a minor character role in this book.

Jack Thornton, a detective and Ross Marshall’s friend is caught up in an obsessive attraction that at times is overwhelming and at other times unreal. Meeting the woman who plagues his dreams, he fights her every step of t

I really liked this story. I feel as though the books in this series can be read as a stand alone. You really don't have to read the one before to enjoy the next one. I tend to go back and forth on how I feel about York. But this one was a big hit with me. A sexy cop, A strong and smart red headed heroin. With magic involved to bring together the not so suspenseful but never the less intriguing mystery. The cover mentioned a werewolf but you don't get to see much of him in this one... to bad.

Enjoyable. I liked book 2 better, but I really like the guy in this book. I just felt like book 1 got more into the relationship and you didn't have to figure out who or how the "force" was with them.
(That will only make sense if you've actually read them so I apologize.)
I do look foward to book 3.

A really fast read. They remind me a bit of I think of Mercedes Lackey's series of elves helping this world, but a bit more erotic.

This is Jack Thornton’s story. Remember he was the police detective in the previous book. Here he meets Katheryn Reynolds a graphics designer who works at home. Katheryn’s downstairs’ tenant has gone missing, a strange van has been in the neighborhood and there’s been a few break-ins around her home.

The whole painting world felt very strange to me. It was confusing and unsettling. I did research the painting and while not my cup of tea they fit the story well.

I really liked how Ross & Megan

This book was much better than the first in the series. We were given more details about the characters and had a fuller scope of their feelings in this book. The book centers around Kathryn Reynolds who tenent is missing. She calls in to report it and comes in contact for the first time with Jack Thornton a cop. They go on a wild journey through sharing dreams and defending themselves against a magician who is hell bent on owning a demon

This book is pretty good. I think the first book is better, but I loved Jack from the previous book and was excited to read his story. Jack and Kathryn are great together. Although it took almost 90% of the book for Jack to get his head in the game and realize that there was more feeling than he thought he had for Kathryn. They made a great team against the crazy magician and the demon. I really liked the paranormal element in this book. Loved that Ross was back too. Overall this was really good ...more

I liked this book pretty well. It was a pnr but the romance wasn't as large a part as in some other books. The magic using was very well done. I think it is harder to do well than the werewolf/vampire thing because you have to have a firmer grasp on how you (the author) intend to have your magic work. Poorly done the story can just become a bunch of gimmes. There was only a little bit of that near the end but it wasn't too bad. I liked both the hero and the heroine both seemed well written and n ...more

So when I first read this book I never realized it was a series. Which I just love so much. This was a really good book. I loved the characters and how the story developed. Anything with magic I usually fall for and the same happened with this book. There was one thing in the book that made me laugh the demon worshiping psycho. The element of dreams sucking you in and becoming real was a good twist with this book. Who wouldn't love to have a dream become real depending on certain ones. I love wh ...more

I adored Killing Moon--kept and re-read--but in this book, the blend of paranormal and gritty thriller isn't quite as smooth, and doesn't seem to build on the previous book's mythos at all. The characters tend toward histrionics (especially at the end). But still, I read right through it and am going on to the next in the series, hoping to find it meets the expectations set by the first book. All in all, this is really closer to a three-star, but...maybe I'm influenced by how much I enjoyed the ...more
This being the third book I’ve read in this series, I must say that this story disappointed me. I simply didn’t finished. The concept seemed forced. There were a lot of sexual scenes since the beginning (but they were where just dreams), poor character development, the story gets confusing and the paranormal part is completely unnecessary.
So… this one was not for me at all. I liked the other two books, but this one I just lost interest.

Undeniable lustful attraction, magic, adventure, action, demon worshipping psycho, and realistic dreams. Is definitely this book all wrapped into one. I will admit for this series I read it completely out of order. I had no clue when I picked the book I first read of this series that there were other's I should read first. Coming in from the fourth or fifth book and then reading randomly is easy to understand what is all going on. This one is a decent fun romance with moderate sexual content.

I keep surprising myself by liking these books. And while there was probably a two year gap between reading the first book of the series and the second, I still was able to catch on. This book reads more as romantic suspense with a hint of paranormal. I believe the rest of the series becomes much more paranormal. However halfway through the pace really picked up and I stayed up late to see how it would end. I met this author years ago at RT, a great, quick read.

This was quite a complicated story but was so compelling it kept me reading. I liked that the demon got a voice too and was not the bad guy really. The whole tale was a bit out there but the characters kept my interest and we got to see Ross and Megan again. It will be interesting to see where book 3 takes the series.

This story included Jack Thornton, detective from first book, and Kathryn as a new character. I was held captive with this book as well, as Kathryn and Jack race againist time to save innocent victim at that had of a mad man trying to evoke a demon. The demon is speaking to Jack though dreams to try and save himself. I love the books by Rebecca York. Can't wait to read the next one.

Edge of the Moon was excellent. I call it a paranormal thriller. Two people, Jack ( police detective from Killing Moon) and Kathryn are unwilling participants in the struggle between a magician and the demon he is trying to enslave. Exciting story, great romance.
Rebecca York is an exceptional author. I dare you to read 20 pages and put it down. I can't.

I thought with this being a series it would be a lot different but its a great read and you don't have to read the first to understand the story I enjoy books that follow the series but definitely looking forward to reading the rest
Dawn (Kat N Hat)
This book was better than the first, but again the word distended should not be used in a sex scene. There is just something about the word choices that this author uses that just seem awkward to me and hinders my enjoyment of the stories. The plot itself was good.

I liked Rebecca York's Moon Series and am currently re-reading.

Being the second book this deals with the detective from the first novel Jack Thornton and brings him even more into the paranormal world when he meets Kathryn Reynolds.

Took a little bit of time to get into this book, but once I did, it was a good read. I went out and purchased the next 3 in the series. I am noticing a writing pattern that took place with the last one and this story, I'm hoping it switches up a little bit in the next.
