Huntress Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff

I wanted to share one of my favourite reads from last year. I was lucky enough to be able to request this, and other books in the series, from the TBC Reviewers Request Group on Facebook. Reviews of the other books will follow in the next few days. If you haven't read any of them, I suggest you rectify that!

This was one of my earliest reviews, so it's a bit shorter than my current ones tend to be. Don't know if that's a good or a bad thing!

The Blurb:

A Thriller Award nominee for Best eBook Original Novel... Book 1 in award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff's riveting new Huntress FBI series about a driven FBI agent on the hunt for that most rare of all killers: a female serial.

FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can’t believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.

Roarke’s hunt for her takes him across three states...while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.

As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.

My Review:

I was keen to start this series, as I had been recommended it by several people! I enjoy reading crime, thriller & suspense novels, so hoped to enjoy this, and I wasn't disappointed!

This series is a bit different - the protagonist is female! I really enjoyed learning more about her throughout the story. It's often hard not to root for her, when you know you really shouldn't!

I loved the connection which starts to build between her and the FBI Agent, Roarke, and his relationship with his partner/right hand man Epps. It is beautifully written, and the way in which the scenery and surroundings are described is very evocative - I often felt like I was there with the characters. I can't wait to read book 2!

You can buy Huntress Moon on Amazon UK and US, and in all good bookshops.
