Lee Roland brings Urban Fantasy to life with her non-stop action and slum-monster battles of good vs. evil, in Viper Moon.

Cassandra Archer is no innocent when it comes to fighting things that go bump-in-the-night, above ground and in dank and dark sewers. Her mission, as Huntress for the Earth Mother is to use her provided powers of strength to find and bring home the lost children. Children who have been stolen and taken to the Barrows, an invisibly shielded Hell on earth of evil. Once taken there, the children are never the same again, and some never make it out.

It is when Cass is confronted by Detective Flynn and crime-boss extraordinaire, Carlos Dacardi that things take a turn for the worst. Flynn's sister has disappeared, as well as Dacardi's son. Both come to Cass to find the children, hearing that she is the best. However, it doesn't take long for all involved to realize that there is something much darker, deeper and sinister at work. Something beyond the horror that normally resounds from the Barrows. The Darkness has a plan and that plan involves Cass and it will stop at nothing to lure her into it's clutches – including the children.

Complete with snakes, bronze bullets and super strength, Viper Moon is a ride like few others. The character of Cass is excellent. Her strength, determination and bravery is astounding and makes the story that much more intriguing and enjoyable. The sizzling romance between Flynn and Cass adds another fun and lively dimension to Viper Moon. Secondary characters such as Abby and Michael truly make the story and I felt myself drawn to Michael. The emotions in which his character evokes throughout the story is incredibly electric and heartfelt.

Lee Roland writes in such a way, that I was quickly drawn into the story, the characters and the setting. This is the first work by Ms. Roland that I have read, however I greatly look forward to reading further works by her. She definitely has a shining talent for storytelling and enveloping the reader within her created worlds. There is humor, suspense, romance, paranormal and drama all rolled into one enormously entertaining ball of urban fantasy fire within the pages of Viper Moon.

For lovers of paranormal and urban fantasy, I highly recommend Viper Moon. The characters are wonderful and vivid, with very real emotions and struggles. The story is engrossing and reads very quickly (aka: it's incredibly difficult to set Viper Moon aside once you have begun reading). I honestly was surprised with the twists and turns and how the ending played out. Very satisfied, but surprised.

Viper Moon by Lee Roland is definitely a hit and a book that I am thrilled to have indulged in. You don't want to miss out on it!
