BITE THE BULLET
An insidious plot is
coming to fruition in the second book of Banks' electrifying werewolf saga, Crimson Moon. Part special ops thriller, part supernatural adventure, it has swift action and intense danger. Utilizing
her storytelling flair, Banks imbues
her characters with both nobility
and kick-ass attitude. It doesn't
get much better than this!
Only recently has Lt. Sasha Trudeau of the Paranormal Containment Unit learned that what she and the government previously believed about werewolves was incomplete at best. Learning the difference between werewolves, shadow wolves and demon-infected werewolves from her new mate Max Hunter has opened Sasha's eyes. An alpha shadow wolf, Hunter suspects that vampires are behind the sudden rise in demon-infected wolves in order to create clan conflict.
With the upcoming United Council of Entities meeting in New Orleans, Sasha and Hunter need to be on top of their game to prevent what could become a massacre. Sasha's fight is not only to protect humans and innocent supernatural entities, she is also fighting to save Hunter, for he may have been infected with the deadly demon virus. (ST.
