Blood Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff

I'm continuing with my reviews of the fabulous Huntress/FBI series by Alexandra Sokoloff. Today it's time for the second book in the series, Blood Moon, which continues Cara's journey where book one finished up. This was another book I received from TBC Reviewers Group on Facebook in return for an honest review. I was quite new at this reviewing game when I wrote this one, so it's quite short!

The Blurb:

Twenty-five years have passed since a savage killer terrorized California, massacring three ordinary families before disappearing without a trace. The only surviving victim of his rampage was a child…who is now wanted by the FBI for brutal crimes of her own.

Special Agent Matthew Roarke is on an interstate manhunt to track her down, despite feeling torn between his dedication to duty and his sympathy for her horrific history and motives. But when Roarke’s search unearths evidence of new family slayings, the dangerous woman he seeks—and secretly wants—may be his only hope of preventing another bloodbath. He just has to find her first.

The pulse-pounding sequel to Huntress Moon is sure to leave readers on the edges of their seats.

My Review:

This second book in the Huntress series can be read as a stand alone, with all relevant details filled in, but I was glad to have read the first one beforehand.

I raced through this one - it's brilliantly written. I could feel the rising tension all the way through. I loved the deepening, complicated connection/relationship between FBI guy Roarke and the Huntress. And like Roarke, I remain conflicted about her. She is such a well written character.

As with the first book, the scene setting is beautiful - so atmospheric. The scenery is really another character, it adds so much to the story.
I can't wait to read the next book!

You can purchase Blood Moon on Amazon UK and US and in good bookshops.
