Jessica has no idea her daughter is an Alpha werewolf in charge of the last surviving pack. Rylie is determined to keep her from learning the truth. But between her mate’s stubbornness, airport security, and nosy family members, Rylie is soon to learn that being the Alpha doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s the one in control.
This book marks the end of the Seasons of the Moon: Cain Chronicles series. If you’ve been following along you know that even though the series has come to an end, this is not the last that readers will see of Seth, Abel and Rylie. Actually far from it.
So, you know that I’ve jumped around a bit. I read the first couple of books in the Seasons of the Moon series and then I lost track. I was reminded again about these books when I was introduced to the Ascension series. I read Sacrificed in Shadow, the first book in that series and I was hooked. The Ascension series ties both the Descent and Seasons of the Moon series together. Unfortunately, I was 2 1/2 series and about 16 books behind. (Did I mention that S.M. Reine writes really, really fast?) The point is… I’m almost caught up and even though you can pretty much start anywhere with any of these series, I’m so glad I took the time to play catch-up 😉
Alpha Moon was kind of short, but it covered a lot of ground. Rylie and Abel were still getting to know their twins. The pack was getting ready to move to a new, isolated location. The world not only knew about, but was terrified of anything supernatural. There was an entire government organization not only out to get Rylie and her pack, but just looking for a reason to destroy them and Rylie’s mom was coming to visit. In a normal world, that would be the easiest thing to handle. Rylie’s world was anything but normal.
There was so much to love about this book. I loved getting to know Summer better and watching her get closer to Rylie. I gained a whole new appreciation for Abel who I had just recently started to like. And then there was Jessica… I gotta say, my reaction to her was totally unexpected.
I have to admit though, if I had read this as a series finale, I probably would have been a little disappointed. Reading it knowing that there is so much more to come is totally different. In that respect I suppose I can forgive myself for taking so long to catch up. If you’re starting fresh with this series and others in the S.M. Reine universe, enjoy. Alpha Moon may mark the end of a series, but the adventure has just begun.
