Story: 4.5 stars

Narration : 4.5 stars

Overall: 4.5 stars.

Paranormal Romance, as many of you will know, is one of my favourite genres. Moon Promise was not what I was expecting. The romance aspect was level with the mystery that Kezi visited the Wild Pack to investigate. One of their wolves was missing and Kenzi was there as an official investigator. Kenzi was also there on a more private mission. To learn about her mother who was killed when she was young. In order to eventually succeed her fathe

Kensi is a princess and future alpha with a deep secret. She works as a private investigator by day so when another wolf pack asks for her help locating a missing wolf, she hesitantly accepts. Drake is assigned to be her guide through the unfamiliar community – meaning he sticks to her side every waking moment. Spending that much time with him leads to feelings that she wasn’t prepared for & the more time she spends with Drake, the more worried Kensi becomes that he may learn her secret – that s ...more

The Story: 4 stars
Princess Kensington is a werewolf, the daughter to the King/Alpha and a Private Investigator with a HUGE secret. She is unable to shift! That in itself was enough to intrigue me to read/listen to this story! Kensi isn't sure why she can't shift but in order to one day become Alpha she really needs to make the change. She takes a PI case for a wolf pack and it turns out it is in the prime spot for her to do some investigation of her own - looking into her mother's lineage. Kensi

Audiobook Review

I hate writing negative reviews but I have to address the narration by Phoenix McKay. In the beginning, it sounds like the narrator is simply reading the story. There is not much influx between the various character voices either. However, as the story progressed, McKay did seem to get a feel for the story and the characters and began to deliver it with more emotion. If the narration had been better, I would have enjoyed the story much more. With that said, author Carmen Fox's M

‘Male werewolves had a tendency to get overly “helpful” around women.’

British author Carmen Fox has published eight novels to date – stories she labels as being about ‘smart women with sassitude and guys with an edge.’ MOON PROMISE, her latest work, falls into the paranormal genre of werewolves and shifters.

One of the several aspects that keeps Carmen’s book entertaining is the manner in which she mixes a keen sense of humor with otherwise dire situations. ‘All things considered, I was in no pa

I’m always on the lookout for new books to read, even if – at times – they may not be quite my cup of tea. I was definitely intrigued when I read the premise for Moon Promise and thought about giving it a chance.
The book is entertaining, and the author does a very good with the flow of the book. There is a sense of development, both with the characters and with the story, which is good. That makes the characters interesting and pluridimensional. There’s nothing worse than characters who fall fla

Moon Promise (The Wild Pack Book 1) by Carmen Fox is the epitome of the paranormal genre with on emphasis on werewolves. The writing flows well as the author introduces us to Kensi, a vibrant young woman who wants more than anything to be an alpha werewolf. Try as she might, she just can't accomplish this goal. Capturing the essence of this young woman is the dialogue which is at once basic and casual, yet managing to move the story along and get the point across. There's a good mix here with a ...more

A supernatural mystery thriller

Kensi is a great private investigator who also desires to be the alpha male of the wolf pack. As she begins to investigate a murder, she is forced to consider the possibility the guy she desires may be the killer she seeks. The story is fast paced with twists along the way. Characters are developed and entertaining while the journey is intriguing and easy to follow. If you like supernatural werewol and romance this is a good read for you. I also recommend this one

On the way to the Wild Pack, Princess Kensington (“Kensi”), royal daughter of the Boroughs Pack Alpha King, was involved in a vehicle accident where an abandoned truck had been left in the middle of the mountainous road and the car that hit hers drove her into the truck. Drake, the Wild Pack’s protector, arrived in an old pickup truck to drive Kensi to the meeting with their Alpha Jonah. Although Kensi von Berg had always dreamed of being an alpha werewolf, she is unable to shift and needs to ke ...more

Kensi is a private investigator and a good one. There are two things you should know about her though. Number one? She's a werewolf. Number two? She's royalty. And I guess it's important to know that she can't shift and she has to hide it from everyone in the werewolf community. This secret means keeping everyone at a distance and never allowing anyone in.

Drake is a protector, a werewolf strong enough to be alpha. He is loyal and kind and having a stranger come in to solve a mystery he couldn't.

Why Drake? Leo at least talks, why not him?

Love this book. What is it like to be a werewolf that can't shift? How about an alpha that can't show their dominance? If you want to know then this is the book to read. Kensi is the daughter of an alpha and a private detective. She is hired to find a missing werewolf. When she gets to the town the werewolf went missing she is reminded why she doesn't like being around other werewolves.

Great story and mystery. Kensi is the only child of the alpha and king of her pack. But for some reason she has never been able to shift nor exhibit dominance over another shifter as she should be able to as the future alpha of her pack. Then she goes to Colorado to help another pack locate a missing woman. She is also on another mission. Her mother was originally from this area, and she wants to find out about the missing “travelers”. She hopes to also find out why she can’t shift. She has a re ...more

As a P.I Kensi was after answers but not only for her investigation if not for her future as an alpha. Struggling with her self-doubts, her feelings for the alpha protector and her duty Kensi had to face the reality of her destiny and don’t be afraid of embracing it. An intriguing and very interesting story that kept my attention to the details of the plot development. Predictable? At all. Kensi’s character was compelling with good and clear insight and witty and amusing comments. Liked the myst ...more

So, it appears the theme of my weekend is werewolf royalty; from king to queen and now to princess. I know I read the blurb, but I still didn’t know what I was about to get myself into with this book. There’s a lot of story in here. A lot. And it’s all complex and detailed and intricate. There was no skimming allowed if I wanted to keep track of all the threads that Kensi’s following.

Kensi finds she has high aspiration for one in her predicament. She will need help reaching the shelf she wants. In come Drake.

Loved this book! Princess Kensi is the daughter of a werewolf King, and a private detective in Chicago. She has a secret, she's a werewolf that can't shift. She's hired to help find a woman from the Wild Pack that has disappeared. Drake, an Alpha Protector, is assigned to be her babysitter/guide while she's there. Kensi finds herself very attracted to Drake. This book has a bit of everything, crime, murder, jealousy, and love. A fun entertaining read and one I really enjoyed.

This book is so different from most shifter/paranormal stories, as it also includes an honest Nancy Drew investigation type heroine. For Kensi, being an alpha is all she's ever dreamed of so when she's paired with Drake to solve the Wild Pack's missing person's case, all bets are of, since Kensi is trying to hide that she is unable to shift while trying to show that she is able to lead.

This story is something else. It is awesome. Kensi is a PI and she loves a mystery. The case is a good one. Some twists and turns. And Kensi had a secret. It made her a little harder than most. All she had endured as a child. But the best is the ending the biggest mystery of all. I received a complimentary review copy of the book and I am voluntarily leaving a honest review.
