“You are the best part of me”






Spoilers. Well color me surprised. Dang. I've actually given a shapeshifter romance five stars. Brace yourselves, the world is ending soon.

The main characters were introduced in previous books. But, rest assured, this can be read as a stand-alone. The book is about Fang Kattalakis, a shapeshifting wolf and Hellchaser, and Aimee Peltier, the darling of the Peltier clan. Fang and Aimee share a forbidden love. I mean, they're not even the same species.

This is one of my favorites in this series……loved the book title!!!!

Okay, that’s not the only thing I loved about Fang & Aimee’s love story!!! They are one of my fav characters in the fabulous world that the author has created.

Were-Wolf Fang Katallakis……….

black sheep of the famly, he travels the world as a loner, drifting through life, the only pleasure he feels is when he’s taking down his enemies.

Fang Kattalakis (Katagaria wolf) and Aimee Peltier (Katagaria bear, but (view spoiler))

The wolf and the bear. A forbidden love between two species that do not mix.

The love story between these two has started in book ‘Night Play’ (Book 6 in the Dark-Hunterverse, when Fang’s brother Vane met his mate Bride) really early in the series and has continued through all the rest of the books until ‘Bad Moon Rising’.

This book is actually for the most part a recap of

I delayed picking up Bad Moon Rising for more than a year after finishing Dream Warrior because I'd been loving the fact that the DH series had switched focus from the regular characters like dark-hunters, were-hunters, and humans to more high powered characters such as dream-hunters, daimons, demons, and even Gods. With Bad Moon Rising being Fang and Aimee's story it seemed a return to the regular old were-hunters stories and I was not super enthused for that after reading Stryker and Cratus's ...more

Not my favorite, but still overall happy with the plot.

When I picked up this book, I was so excited that I finally got around to reading Fang and Aimee's story. I went into the book with very high expectations, but unfortunately, it turned out to be something opposite of what I was hoping it would be, not with the whole story but just some parts of it. And that made me a little sad. I didn't say or mean that it was bad or disappointing or anything. The romance between them just wasn't the
I'm being generous with my stars tonight because it's almost Christmas. What the hell. Also, I have loved Fang and Aimee for a long time and have been waiting for their story.

Yes, the guy's name is Fang. That wasn't a typo. I think his mom wanted to name him after her favorite astronaut drink, but had a lisp...

He's a werewolf, so this is a photo of his actual mother while caroling one Christmas.

dayum I just want to give them all a hug and crawl inside the book:)

Throughout the series, it was pretty much a given that Aimee and Fang would end up together, and they finally did! However, the path to true love never runs smoothly, and our intrepid heroes have to endure much to reach their HEA.

This book definitely isn't a stand-alone, but really the only ones you need to read to understand what's going on in this book are Night Play and Unleash the Night. On top of revisiting a lot of the favorite characters (okay, all of the characters; was that really neces
Ok - this book was a hot mess. Some good, some bad.

The book covered YEARS. Many years! Which was very confusing at times since it was not always clear. Most of the book took place during a time period already covered in other books. Many of the events and some if the conversations were already in other books. So for me it was boring at times. Sometimes it was interesting seeing the "other side" of a scene or convo, but mostly I was bored.

IMO, this is not a romance. There is very little romance

Whew! I was happy with Bad Moon Rising, and kind of surprised. The last couple books in this series have kind of been lacking. I’ve been anticipating Fang and Aimee’s romance for months.

I was really interested in getting to know the Peltier bears. They’ve been mentioned so many times, but we really don’t know much about them. Since we know Fang is wolf, and Aimee is bear, how will they be able to be together? Is their a chance the Fates would make them mates?

La mayor parte de este libro fue aburrido, no me gustó hasta el de Styker me divirtió más, tal vez porque ODIO los retellings y casi la mitad del libro ya lo sabíamos pero no los vuelen a contar aunque con el punto de vista de los protagonistas, pero aun así fue aburrido porque la historia comienza desde el libro de Talon, pasando por el de Vane, siguiendo con el de Wren pero nunca me di cuenta cuando llegamos a la época actual.

Fang and Aimee… FINALLY!!!

Their relationship between the hotheaded, sarcastic wolf and sweet, funloving bear has been hinted at in other books of the series, and now, finally we get their full story, and oh my God, was it intense! I can’t believe everything they went through! In all of the mentions of Fang and Aimee together in other books, there has always been this sense of forbidden love about them, and now, given the chance to get inside their heads and see their story play out, do we realis

Dare I say that I enjoyed this book just as much as Acherons? I think YES!

I think Ms. Kenyon did a most amazing job of telling Fang and Aimee's story. It was great how we got to see their relationship develop and how all those little snippets of the two of them from previous book were all worked into this one.

I had no idea that they knew each other before Fang was bought into Sanctuary and that Aimee was the one who saved him. That was a complete left fie

A paranormal love story that brings us two protagonists with strong personality and easily to fall in our graces, we are led to cheer for them from the first to the last page.
We can delight in all the moments lived by them, the provocations, the games, the caresses and all the romantic moments, the attraction and the impediment of something happening between them. The forbidden love that is being lived in secret.

I have been waiting for " Bad Moon Rising " with anticipation for a while to finally read the story of Fang Kattalakis ( wolf ) and Aimee Peliteir ( Bear )with the expectation it would be a type of Romeo & Juliet story,and was so thilled, me and a few of my friends treked down to where she was signing the new release.

Aww I loved Amy and Fang's story. Loved this Were-hunter story. Had all the elements you would want in a story. SK really is so talented in her writing. She probably one of my favorite authors for PNR.

Sherrilyn Kenyon, a rainha do paranormal. Desde o primeiro dia em que a li, em Janeiro de 2010, que fiquei com a sensação que estava perante uma das escritas com maior desenvoltura e inteligência na forma como apresentava e fazia evoluir tantos os personagens como o enredo global que os vais ligando uns aos outros. Sendo este o décimo oitavo romance que leio dela, já bateu qualquer record de autor mais lido por mim e nem sempre sou uma leitora fácil. Mais, acho que manter uma linha condutora dur ...more
This book was not as good as the others. I feel that she needed to have a better proof reader, to catch all the time lapses and other issues I felt wear in this book. She failed to mention Katrina as well as keep a accurate time table during the story. Fang and Aimee's story starts in '03 and doesn't concluede until '09, that is 5 years worth of story line including the very BIG issue of Katrina which the author completely skipped. Didn't even mention. Not counting Fury mating, "Hello" when did ...more

Reread-- January 2016

There were a lot of different subplots and characters, made this story/romance garbled at times as well as I wavered in my interest of the outcome.

Hace bastante que no leía un libro de esta autora, y debo decir que tal vez cuando hice las reviews de todos los libros de ésta saga que leí hasta ahora (que son bastantes), fui muy generosa con el rating que les di (no a todos, pero a algunos de los libros), por eso se podría decir que mi manera de "calificar" a estos libros es distinto de como calificaría a un libro normalmente.

Habiendo dicho eso, quiero decir que tenía muchas expectativas respecto a la historia de Fang y Aimee. Desde el libr
Another great installment in the Dark-/Dream-/Were-Hunter saga!

The story of Aimee, Fang and their impossible love has been long in the making, from the almost very beginning of the series, but it's been definitely worth the wait.

As much as this was mostly a solid paranormal romance, Kenyon-style, of course, I loved the fact she decided to delve a little deeper than the usual Daimon/Dark-Hunter/Were-Hunter dealings.
We've wondered if it was at all possible for two different species of Weres to "mi
This wasn't a bad read, but not what I expected.
The world of Dark-Hunters/Were-Hunters changed so much from what it was like in the first ten books, that it sometimes feels like I'm reading a totally different series.
That's what I don't like.
Even if I liked Thor's character, and wanted to know about him more, I feel like it was too much. Like he didn't belong in this world. Or shouldn't belong. Because every time I think I understand who is who and who is more powerful than who, Sherrilyn Ken

Gostei da história mitológica que está na base de cada personagem, bem-criada como sempre.

O universo deste livro é talvez um pouco diferente, pois trata não exactamente dos predadores da noite, apesar de eles aparecerem no livro, mas antes dos predadores do Homem. Fang é um predador do Homem que se transforma em lobo e quando ele e os seus irmãos vão ao Santuário, um bar em que tod
Aimee and Fang's story - and the thickest one since "Acheron".

One of my favorite Dark-Hunter novels so far. The romance with this one stretched over a long period of time, therefore you were more invested in their happily ever after. It was also nice to see the rewind and earlier events in the series retold from Fang's point of view.

Makes me want to reread Vane's story, and maybe Wren's and Fury's. Was Fury's story a short? I've lost track.

Great read. I still say Sherrilyn Kenyon is the queen o
