Book II in the Thriller Award-nominated Huntress/FBI series Twenty-five years have passed since a savage killer terrorized California, massacring three ordinary families before disappearing without a trace. The haunted child who was the only surviving victim of his rampage is now wanted by the FBI for brutal crimes of her own, and Special Agent Matthew Roarke is on an interstate manhunt for her, despite his conflicted sympathies for her history and motives. But when his search for her unearths evidence of new family slayings, the dangerous woman Roarke seeks - and wants - may be his only hope of preventing another bloodbath. It is highly recommended that you read Book 1 of the series, Huntress Moon, first.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Wow, this story blew me away. First, don’t start the story here go back and read or listening to book one, Huntress Moon. Since that is where everything starts. There are spoilers here that will spoil that book. You have been warned.
Roarke and his team are reeling from Kara’s escape at the end of book 1. Yet with her help they were able to close down a human trafficking ring. Roarke is in such a screwed up mindset. He is so completely attracted to Kara and doesn’t have his heart in the game of catching her. I mean really, she is killing evil men; rapist, murders, child molesters and human traffickers, the worst that society has to offer. Is it such a bad thing to leave her on the streets? to clean up the messes that the modern justice system, let fall through the cracks? Roarke is struggling with that very thought. But he is a law man through and through and know he needs to bring her in. He and his team devise a plan to lure her in using the original Reaper case as bait, yet what they find is so chilling. The Reaper is active again, killing again after 25 years!
Roarke and his team are racing the full moon to prevent another family from being slaughtered; at the same time they are trying to catch Kara.
Blood Moon was crazy good! I found myself glued to it, riveted for the next word, sentence, paragraph, and chapter. Sokoloff wrote Kara in a way that even though she was so obviously crazy, you still understand her.
There are too many times evil men get away with unspeakable acts against women and children because we live in a rape society. Just this year a man served 3 months for raping an unconscious woman. 3 months! Another man had his sentence suspended after he RAPED a 2 year old BABY! I am not condoning murder or violence, but if the laws won’t protect women and children, the bringers of life and the future, something is fundamentally broken and something’s got to give.
