"An age-old tale of good versus evil--with a supernatural twist!"
Our story begins with a funeral. The family of the deceased—
a girl—is at the gravesite. The father is devastated by the
death of his daughter. The eldest—a son—is wracked with
guilt. The middle child—another son—is filled with hate and
anger. See, the oldest—Darmetheus—was chosen to become an
Eternal—supernatural warriors against evil things that go
bump in the night. The girl had the gift of healing. All
she had to do was lay hands on someone and they would be
cured. But the middle child—Fallon—had no special talent at
all. When Darmetheus was changing for the first time,
unfortunately, Tessah tried to "heal" him and ended up
being bitten for her trouble. When Tessah went through her
first change, well, she didn't survive. So now, Fallon
blames Darmetheus for Tessah's death. After raging at his
brother, Fallon runs away. He ends up being surrounded by
voices—voices which promise him the revenge he wants so
much. The only thing it will cost him is his soul.
Then we jump forward in time several centuries. After a
particularly fierce battle, Dar decides to take a vacation.
So he hops on his bike—a vintage Harley—and heads to a town
he knows in Colorado. When he gets there, he's pretty
shocked. Everything is closed and there are no lights on
anywhere. It's like the town becomes locked down as soon as
it gets dark. As he's wondering what is going on, he begins
to sense another presence and it's not a good one. The next
thing he knows, he's surrounded by Demon wolves. Now Dar is
pretty powerful—after all, he's been around for a long,
long time—but not strong enough to take them all on. After
taking out one or two of the Demon wolves, he runs and ends
up at a cottage. For some reason the Demon wolves won't
come near the cottage. He's wounded and naked.
Lilith has noticed that people have been disappearing from
her town for a while now. The men are always returned—dead
and half-eaten. Unfortunately, the women are never seen
again. One thing Lilith has noticed—whoever is taking the
women seems to go after only those with "special" talents.
Sadly for Lilith, she has some special talents of her own.
The latest to go missing was Lilith's cousin. Luckily,
Lilith has managed to put a protective circle around her
cottage and has been safe so far. When a naked wounded man
shows up at her home, Lilith feels she has no choice but to
bring him in and help him. Of course, she's not stupid, so
she chains him to the wall overnight.
The attraction between these two is strong. And, naturally,
Dar decides to stay and fight the Demon wolves. Lilith
isn't pleased by this, but what else can she do?
Will Dar and the other Eternals be able to defeat the Demon
wolves? Who is the leader of the Demon wolves and why are
they abducting women? Will Dar be able to get over the
guilt of his sister's death and realize Lilith is his
Chosen? Is there a hope for these two to have a
ETERNAL MOON is a thrilling story of good versus evil.
Shiloh Darke has taken all the things that go bump in the
night and split them into two very distinct and separate
groups—good or evil. We have Eternals—the good guys—who
range from werewolves to wizards and vampires to the bad
guys—Evil—mostly demon spawn. We have Lilith, a very modern
woman who has never been able to have a relationship with a
man due to her special talents, finding herself falling for
Dar. Then we have Dar, a man tortured by the death of his
sister. He has sworn to never try and find his Chosen
because he fears the same thing would happen to her which
happened to his sister. So not only are these two fighting
for their lives against the Demon wolves, they are also
trying to come to grips with their growing feelings for the
other. All in all, an enjoyable read and one I would
recommend to all lovers of supernatural creatures.
