Werewolves and Love Bites, a Review of Moonlight by Katie Salidas

A Novella by Katie Salidas

Moonlight by Katie Salidas is a companion novella set in the world of the Immortalis urban fantasy novels.  In this spin-off, the story centers on Fallon, the loyal friend of Alyssa, the vampire heroine in the novel series. 

Fallon, girlfriend of werewolf alpha, Aiden, finds herself smack dab in the middle of a power struggle that not only threatens her relationship with her lover, but her very life.  Learning that Aiden’s pack will not accept her as his mate unless she makes the transition from human to werewolf, Fallon is faced by a momentous decision: Should she risk her life to run at the side of her alpha wolf lover, or retain her humanity and give him up?  Add to that the rivalry of Diana, a female in the pack, who has a personal vendetta against Fallon, and a delicate web of pack politics that the still-human Fallon must negotiate. 

I found the novella a quick and enjoyable read, just the sort of thing for curling up by the fireplace on a chilly autumn night.  Romance fans will be appreciative of the heat generated by Fallon and Aiden, and urban fantasy fans will enjoy the paranormal elements that Salidas skillfully weaves through the tale.  The werewolf sequences are interesting and exciting, and we see a nice growth arc in Fallon’s character, from gal pal sidekick of vampire Alyssa to savvy leading-lady of her own saga.

So, pour yourself a nice glass of wine, light the fire and hope that your mate will be there to reap the benefits when you’re finished with this steamy and satisfying read.

This Saturday, Sexy Cedric will be back with an excerpt and more on Moonlight!
