Описание

A stunning and suspenseful new landscape emerges in the thrilling Dark-Hunter world—a world where nothing will ever be the same again...

Fang Kattalakis isn't just a wolf. He is the brother of two of the most powerful members of the Omegrion: the ruling council that enforces the laws of the Were-Hunters. And when war erupts among the lycanthropes, sides must be chosen. Enemies are forced into shaky alliances. And when the woman Fang loves is accused of betraying her people, her only hope is that Fang believes in her.

Yet in order to save her, Fang must break the law of his people and the faith of his brothers. That breech could very well spell the end of both their races and change their world forever.

The war is on and time is running out...

A Macmillan Audio production.

    The story was pretty good, but you really should be up on your Dark Hunter books to get the most out of it.

    I really liked Aimee, and glad that she found someone. Fang is not quite as likable a character, but he grew on me. I thought Mama bear was a real jerk and didn't understand all of her actions. Overall, a little predictable and formulaic, but still a good story.

    Fang Kattalakis is one bad wolf. Having to protect his siblings from a vicious father and pack he's had to be. When he meets the only daughter to infamous Peltier Bear clan, he's instantly smitten and shocked at the same time. No one has touched him as much as Aimee Peltier and he finds himself helplessly drawn to her, even though he knows such an intermingling of species can never be.Aimee can't believe the feelings the rough wolf wear-hunter arouses in her. She's always thought the wolves were the most barbarian of shifters but something about Fang tugs at her heart. Still, she's used to being the odd man out- having to keep a deep secret all her life from the family she loves with all her being. And though she knows she should stay away from Fang, she can't help but seek him out whenever possible.The more time they spend together the more they suspect that that are indeed fated for each other even as a war is brewing between the Wolf Were-Hunter packs. When Fang ends up at the Bear clan's home, hurt and in a coma, Aimee alone can save him. Because of this, even more secrets are forged, not only between Aimee and her parents but also between the couple who hold a love that can never be.I loved this book! Since Night Play has remained my favorite Dark Hunter novel to date- it's a no brainer that the hero of NP's brother's book, Fang Kattalakis, is a close second.Fang has a brusque exterior but he has a tender heart, as evidenced by the love he holds for his family. Aimee is sweet and outwardly gentle, but she's just as fierce in her love and she makes a fantastic pairing with Fang.What I loved most about this novel is that Kenyon broke from route and created tension between the H/H, not by having them fight each other even though they know they are meant to be together, but by outside circumstance keeping them apart. A true star-crossed lover tale, I couldn't put this book down til I reached the end.4.5 out of 5 from me and highly recommended for those that follow paranormal romance!Be warned: Kenyon once again introduces a ton of characters and her world building can feel erratic at times. She also creates new teams of fighters ala Dark Hunter lore, which all combined really bothers some people based on some of the reviews I've read, but if you've followed this series from the beginning it's more interesting to see how Fang and Aimee's thread is woven through the tapestry of all the other Dark Hunter/ Dream Hunter's stories to date.

    looooved this one!!!

    You have to have read Vane's book to understand the bad feeling Fang has towards his brother. I now completely understand his reasons for resenting Vane, who shouldn't have ignored Fangs pleas for help, no matter how they were conveyed. They live in a supernatural world where anything could happen, Vane should have known better.

    Although I was glad to finally get the whole story, I felt this book was a little too long. I found myself wondering when it was going to end. I think I'm feeling the same about this series in general, ever since Acheron's book the series has seemed to have lost its footing. There are still characters in it which I love, especially the relatively new characters Jaden and Jared but now the series has lost it's secretive tortured leader, Nick is a poor replacement for that mystery and intrigue. I'm not particularly interested in his life story after the way he's reacted since his mother's death. I may keep reading for the Dogs of War and Jared and Jaden but if I don't see any improvement in the new story arc soon I may give up on this long-running series.

    Good read, very similar to other Kenyon books and nothing that truly stood out as amazing. I think I definitely prefer the were's to other hunters. A few new and interesting characters for future books.
  • (3/5)
    I really liked the romance of this story though the erotic scenes are very few and at the end. Also I liked that the back story is told, so we go back to before Vane's book and part of that one is repeated here. When a author does that, frequently things don't line up perfectly and that definitely happens here. Still I am glad that she did go back and tell the growing story of their affection.

    It is hard to put a finger on how much time passes during this book by the book alone as it seems like maybe a couple of years happen but in reality years pass as seen by background stories and children, etc.... If you go read the novella, or read the novella in "Dead After Dark" to fill in Fury's story, "Shadow of the Moon", you really see how the happening and timeline didn't line up. At no point is Fang living with Vane and Fury before he is mated to Aimee, yet in Fury's story he does and has some sort of understanding with him.

    OK, what I didn't like (not hate, just a bit annoying), all these new characters and big bads are introduced. Fang's offer didn't seem accepted and the reason for it didn't seem valid either. It made the back story seem forced just to get some changes in the continuing story. I really wanted to love Fang's story but all the forced background stories and such made it drag. I really liked it until it intersected Vane's book and went on a totally different tangent.

    I randomly picked this up in the middle of the series and yet, I loved it. I'm sure all the others are just as good. I'm a fan!
  • (4/5)
    My reaction to this book may be partly my fault, since I did read this out of order. However, I felt this book had too many characters running around, combined with what seemed to be overlap with the plots of several other books in the series. It also didn't really give a clear view of the passage of time. I was aware from the narrative that several months had passed over the course of the storyline, but I was a little surprised when late in the book there seemed to be an implication that several years had actually passed.

    Fang Kattalakis is the son of one of the most powerful were-hunters, he's a shapeshifting wolf and he's an angry man. There's a war against the lycanthropes and he's involved and he has to pick a side, his choices will change his life forever.Aimee is a bear shifter and she has multiple problems, the least of which is her mother, who wants to see her married to a bear. When she finds herself attracted to a wolf she's confused, this is not something she wanted. Can she resist?I liked the two of them, willing to fight for and with each other and willing to do a lot to help others, even if they both have hard shells, they're soft hearted and want to do the best they can. I enjoyed it, a lot happens in this story that reflects a few other books and issues and things are going to cascade from this and be interesting.

    This book wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I enjoyed Fang and Aimee's story from their perspective. I was surprised and intrigued by the ending and am looking forward to reading more of the series again. Part of me was getting bored, so to be excited to read more is a good thing.

    Decent plot, but the details were a bit hard to follow... Sentinels, Katagaria, Arcadians, Were-Hunters, Daimons, Demons, and gods and magic of different religions crossing paths... LOTS to keep track of! The sexual tension was HIGH between the two main characters, Aimee and Fang, but surprisingly, the plot's climax was as worth it as the, er, "Other" climax!

    read full review at talksupe.blogspot.comThis is pretty tame compared to the other Hunter books, the signature Kenyon love scenes are a little bit restrained, but the tone of familial love and loyalty certainly makes up for it
  • (4/5)
    With the exception of Acheron, the last 4 or 5 D-H books have been weak. A lot of time was spent expanding the mythology to accommodate a major new, multi-book plotline that the character-driven focus of the series took a backseat, as did the romance. However, this book finally started to bring it back on track. Fang and Aimee have been here since the beginning and their story has been a long time coming. Kenyon has really worked her magic to give them their HEA and bring the new plot into focus at the same time. With so many pantheons, it was inevitable that we should come across beings connected to Lucifer. When Fang sank into a coma, he was actually trapped in a Nether Realm since Daimons had sucked out so much of his soul. Only Aimee knows what is happening and she is fighting to free him. He ends up trading his soul to the mysterious Thorn to protect her, which brings him into contact with, and in service to, the Hellchasers. They are tasked with sending demons back to hell. And that's just getting started with a story that has multiple conspiracies, shifting allegiances, and tragedy - some familiar characters do not survive. Since A LOT of what happens in this book overlaps with events from previous books, some very far back, there is a large amount of recap in the beginning. This wasn't all bad since it pulled all the various threads together and reminded readers of the history to this point, but it went on too long. This was especially true since even more new material was being added, like the Hellchasers, which cut the romance even shorter. Though not as strong as the early books, this did bring the series back to its roots with a more satisfying romance and beloved characters. For the first time in a while, this felt like Dark-Hunter book.

    I havent read any of these before and my library just purchased this one though I plan to request the others. I liked the story, the romance learning about the characters and the worlds they inhabit.I hated the time scale though - set over years it feels like big chunks of the story are missing - (I assume other books in the series might take place in those periods) but i guess from other reviews that this was a story focused on two specific characters rather than being a part of the main story. Annoying though and it felt incomplete because of that. In complete contradiction I was happy that it was a reasonable complete story of the relationship so in that way it stood alone as a single read.Definately plan to read more

    I really like the Chronicles of Nick series, but this didn't hold my attention. It seemed very slow.

    I completed this book yesterday and I have mixed feelings. I have been waiting so long for the story of Fang and Amy, but from what I read, this was like a "Clip show" of previous books, only from Fang and Amy's point of view, which really does not change much. There are even whole passages from other books (Unleash the Night in particular). I was looking for more background on the Lycos Kattalakis family (Dare and Star...where were they)? Except for the ending (which had me in tears) there was really nothing new here. I am going to read it again to see if my opinion changes.
  • (2/5)
    This story is all over the place and definitely not in a good way. If you're familiar with the Dark-Hunter series, you know that Fang Kattalakis and Aimee Peltier have been star-crossed lovers for some time. So, while it's neat that this book begins with their first meeting and then recaps previous events through the lens of their relationship... it's also a drag on the overall story. Much as I hate flashbacks, perhaps they would have come in handy for this one.Besides having to slog through a rehash of past novels -- and the less-interesting parts, at that -- this book suffers from the same ailment as much of this series does. Namely, a building sense of pointlessness. As the Dark-Hunter series stretches on ad nauseum, Kenyon forces the plot along by constantly introducing new characters, each one supposedly more bad and beautiful than the last. If the repetition doesn't bore you, the desensitization will.As for some specifics... Fang and Aimee are both surprisingly underdeveloped considering how long they've been around. Aimee is likable enough but in a Mary Sue kind of way, and Fang's personality blurs against the backdrop of all the other male characters. In fact, there's no real feeling here. Oh, there's melodrama a-plenty, but no sense that this book was a labor of love. You could remove this book from the entire series without much of a ripple. Therefore, why bother?

    Bad Moon Rising was an uneven and confusing read. Too many new characters are introduced while the story keeps making abrupt leaps.
  • (4/5)
    Unfortunately, I was slightly disappointed in the story due to the disassociation I felt with the main characters, this was still an interesting entry into the dark hunter series that kept me interested. Fang and Aimee's story was told primarily in flashback, filling in things only hinted in during the other novels this one covers. Even still, there were gaps which seemed to get left and in the last climactic scene I just couldn't really bring myself to feel badly about how it all worked out.I'm certainly not as blown away by this story as I hoped I would be, but it is still an interesting enough volume that I am glad I finally got around to reading.

    This is the story about Fang Kattalakis (wolf katagaria) and Aimee Peltier (bear arcadian).The old premise in the Dark Hunter/WereHunter world is that different species do not inter-mate. It is a total no, no. Completely un-acceptable. Consequently there is a huge racial discrimination for mixed heritages and mixed couples. So on the outset, one can already see the problem that our protagonists are facing. A bear and a wolf don't mate. It makes an interesting love story. Not very original though. Anyhow, the story-telling quality is still good. Also nice to hear about background follow-ups to characters and events in previous novels. I always liked that. Nicely links-in this novel with the others. On the whole, I gave this book a 3.5 out of 5.

    Fang is gorgeous and hot-headed, the type that acts first then thinks about his actions later. This gets Fang jumping from the frying pan into the fire on many occasions. He is also the type that once your his friend or someone he cares about, he loyalty is unquestionable. Aimee is a sassy, kindhearted and willing to stand up for what she believes in, she also has more than one secret that she kepts hidden, even from her family. Though they are both at odds with their attraction to each other, Fang and Aimee have an easy way with each other, that shows in the conversations between Fang and Aimee.Like previous Dark-Hunter books, throughout the book you get regular doses of strong, territorial, alpha males, usually with cutting remarks and attitudes to match. And even though this was a Dark-Hunter book, there wasn't much said about them, only a few brief appearances by a couple of past Dark-Hunter characters. This was mainly a book on the Were-Hunters. Simi does makes an appearance and my favorite quote in the book is by her:"We have three kinds of family. Those we are born to, those who are born to us, and those we let into our hearts."Bad Moon Rising picks up around the same time period as Night Play, telling the story from Fang and Aimee's point of views, starting with when they first met and spans across past books. It was enjoyable and interesting to view the events as they saw it from their eyes but it started to feel as though I was getting a play by play from the other side of the court, a rehash of past books instead of reading a new story. More than half way through the book, it starts to pick up and get more interesting with new characters and another realm being introduced with added twists to the plot.Overall, Bad Moon Rising was an enjoyable read, the ending of this book helped makeup for the slow start and I would recommend this book to readers of this series because of the character and realm introductions. Being a Menyon (Kenyon Minion), I plan on getting the next book in this series, which is Aimee's brother Dev Peltier's book, No Mercy.The Dark-Hunters series are paranormal romances centered around shifters, vampires (these vamps aren't your typical vamps), and gods of different mythos. This series really should be read in order because of the complex system of characters and different realms that exist in the Dark-Hunters' world. By reading in order, a reader would better understand the background and nuances of each book, making them a more enjoyable read.

    So I was really looking forward to this book and was extremely happy with the 2nd half of the story. The first part is a bunch of retelling of what has already been told in other books. Yes it was at times from a different perspective but still a bit to repetitive for me. I am hoping this is not a sign to come of Dev/Samia story but I don't think it would happen since I think that will be a continuation.
  • (4/5)
    I had a couple of problems with this one. The time line was a bit confusing at first (we are thrown way into the past to see how Amiee and Fang's relationship started) and we aren't given any indication that they'll be able to have children, and the heroine is given a ring with a big deal made of it that is never seen again. Kenyon introduces us to yet another group of hunters, but makes a valid point in the book saying that there are many demons, therefore there are many demon hunters. I do think she could afford to slow down on her rapid introduction of new characters though. She has plenty of strong male and female leads to choose from for future stories without throwing a dozen new ones into each book. I never really got into the central romance, but enjoyed the world building when Kenyon finally finished rehashing old storylines for much of the book. Not the best DH and I hope with the next one Kenyon returns us solidly into new material. I was a bit dismayed to see at the end of the book that Nick's story is going to be Young Adult fiction. I have hopes that this doesn't mean watered down, but I suspect it does.
  • (3/5)
    I had a hard time with this book. I have read all the dark/were/dream hunter books, and almost half of this book was re-hashing things we already knew. It felt redundant and boring. I enjoyed Fang and Aimee's growing love for one another. The new characters intrigued me, mainly Thorn. We see Zeke and Varyk, Acheron makes a stage right appearance, we get to see Simi, and she rocks as usual. Savitar is a cool conundrum. I love Vane, Bride, Fury and Wren. But the time line of this book is just silly. Half the book Vane isn't mated, Wren isn't mated, and it's all old news. No mention of the new Daimon powers that we saw in the Dream Warrior, I don't even know what year the book ended in. It started in 2003, and then at the end it said that a few years has passed? Fang was only out of it for a few months.... where on earth did all the time go??? Also, the HEA wasn't all that great. As far as I know Fang still does not have a soul. That makes me sad. I was happy the mating mark showed up, but it felt just sort of thrown in there.Also, what happened to the Ring that she received from the weird woman? She said she would know when to use it... um.. it never got used? I figured it would be used to get his soul back... just me I guess I found it sloppy at best. Sorry Sherrilyn, not your best work.
