"A Howl-ing good read!"
Ana Brannon is a veterinarian who happens to be a gypsy
with an extra magical kick. Howl Raven is a werewolf who
is cursed to not only turn into a wolf beast when the moon
is full, but has a hunter stalking him.
Though slow to start off, this story is a must for a
reader's shifter library. The villain is wonderfully
flawed and winds up getting his just desserts. The scenes
between Ana and Howl are steaming and fast paced. Howl is
one of those dark, tortured heroes that just wants to
protect his woman and vice versa.
While there are some clichéd werewolf elements of silver
bullets and full moons, it makes them essential to the
plotline and makes the story all the more richer. But
while there are some recognizable factors of a werewolf
story there are also many extraordinary and unique parts of
this story that truly give Gypsy Moon its flavor.
I love how the villain can track Howl regardless of what
state he is in. I also love how motherly Ana is toward
everyone and everything. I liked how the ending turned out
and my favorite line was "Well, he deserved it."-
hilarious! But Howl does have the tendency to be
overbearing to the point where I, personally, wanted to
kick him, but that may just be me.
The only question I have would be for Howl to meet up with
his foster family and come to terms with them. Other than
that, I'm glad about how this story turned out for Ana and
I do warn those with weak stomachs, there is quite a bit of
blood in this story. It's a werewolf story, so, of course
