REVIEW

"Dragons, werewolves, and alternate universes!"

Kenna is a slave in her world. Right after she attained a good position, she was taken by Vandar's men. Instead of the good life she thought she would lead, Kenna lives in terror. At least she has a powerful gift. See, on Kenna's world, quite a few people are "gifted"—have psychic abilities. And Vandar is even more powerful. After all, he isn't even human. He can shift into a silver-scaled dragon and often does. Also, he drinks the blood of his slaves. Not to mention, Vandar also has amazing mental abilities. Regardless of her shielding, Vandar can still enter Kenna's mind. After having all his slaves gather, he will shift from a dragon into a human and pick one of them for his meal. After this particular gathering, Vandar's man comes to Kenna and lets her know her master wants her. Turns out Vandar has created an entry into another universe—one with great technological advances—and he wants Kenna to go into this other universe and spy for him. He's already sent others there and wants to try a female this time. After two weeks of intensive training, Vandar once more sends for Kenna. After testing her knowledge, he once again enters her mind, causing Kenna great pain until she loses consciousness. When she awakens, she is taken to the port. On the other side, Kenna finds herself in a great forest and there's a storm. Intent on finding shelter, Kenna begins to walk until she finally sees a light and heads toward it. As a tree begins to fall, Kenna uses her gift to move it so it won't crush her. Unfortunately, she's trapped and can't get out. The next thing she knows, there's a large dog there, looking at her. Now totally scared, Kenna is relieved when it leaves.

Talon Marshall lives in the woods, which is perfect for him. To make money, he leads various trips into the wilderness—again, perfect for him. After all, Talon is a werewolf so what could be better? While out running one day, Talon comes across a scent and digs. Eventually, he finds a box filled with money, which he turns over to the police. Once that's done and over with, he thinks nothing of it and goes back to his normal routine. One night, there's a storm. While outside, he hears a female scream and becomes a wolf to go investigate it. What he finds shocks him—a beautiful woman trapped by a fallen tree. He knows he won't be able to help her as a wolf, so he goes to his hidden clothes and shifts back to human. After he manages to extricate her, he takes her back to his lodge. Now he's really confused when she doesn't seem to understand anything of modern conveniences. Eventually, he agrees to allow Kenna to stay with him, working for her room and board.

As the two of them spend more time together, they find the attraction between them building. Talon doesn't want to be tied down, so he fights it. Plus he can tell Kenna is hiding something from him, especially when she won't even tell him anything of her past. Little does he know, Kenna can't. Every time she tries, she feels pain in her head. When she does manage to say a few words—which make no sense to Talon—Kenna ends up suffering severely and going into convulsions. Finally, Talon sends a hair to one of his cousins for analysis to see if he can find out anything about Kenna.

Will the two of them have a chance at a relationship? Will Kenna ever be able to break Vandar's control over her and tell Talon of her past and her mission? Will Talon ever realize that Kenna is indeed his life mate? Will Vandar come through the port and take over?

DRAGON MOON is a thrilling paranormal romance full of werewolves, dragons and psychics. Rebecca York grabbed me by the throat into this story and didn't let go until the ending—which came much too quickly in my opinion. I even got to catch up with some of the Marshall pack when they came together. We have Kenna coming from an entirely different universe, thrown into ours and trying to adapt. Then there's Talon, falling in love with Kenna despite the fact he doesn't want to find his life mate. Throw in Vandar, a truly evil villain and it all makes a wonderful story and one I cannot recommend highly enough.

SUMMARY

As a werewolf, Talon is no stranger to secrets, and he can sense that the psychic Kenna is keeping something from him. But Talon is powerfully drawn to the mysterious stranger, and the urge to claim her is just as strong as the instinct to keep himself guarded. With impossible secrets keeping them apart and the threat from the other world drawing near, their fate hangs in the balance—unless they can learn to trust each other.

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Shapeshifter, Werewolf
