Publisher's Summary

Guiding becomes a deadly business when Kate Shugak accepts a contract to shepherd a group of German computer executives on an Alaskan hunting retreat. As the fog rolls in and people start dying, Kate and her boyfriend Jack discover how very seriously their charges take the sport. A hunter's moon signals a season of gathering and plenty, but Kate finds herself out of resources and at her most vulnerable. She must find the strength to not only survive, but repay. This time, the guide becomes the huntress.

    Reading allows me to travel through time; to visit the world's unique and stunning places. To become somebody I am not... It is glorious.

    Story
    "The Best Kate Shaguk."

    This book is by far the best of the series. It is full of suspense, backstory, and character development. Kate, Jack and Mutt are working as hunting guides in the bush. But the clients are anything but likable. They are disrespectful, arrogant, and Kate is fearful that it might be worse than that. When one client dies Kate and Jack must stay safe, protect their clients and investigate without alerting the killer. It sets up a story that is so much tighter, darker and sadder than any we have seen in the series so far.

    Warning! This book will punch you in the gut and leave you slightly (or more) sad.

    "Pivot Point"

    This book is chock full of action, suspense, mystery, adventure, joy and sorrow. As the title suggests, it's about big game guiding in Alaska--gone bad in this instance. Stabenow's writing is great and kept me on the edge. Her characters are very real, the scenes vivid and believable. The pivot point of the series is in here, and I almost fell off my bicycle when I heard it. Then, Kate goes mad with rage and serves up the perpetrator to a pervert--that's real revenge. With that said, I wonder what's next?

    "Worst Kate Shugak book ever!"

    Nothing happens in this book until you're halfway in and then it's like a boulder rolling downhill. The characters are described in excruciating detail twice. Every action and scene was also described in minute detail. Add to that a seriously rotten ending. Don't waste your credit/money.

    "One of her best"
    Would you listen to Hunter's Moon again? Why?

    Yes, I'd listen to it again but I still have the rest of the this series and her others to finish first.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love Kate of course, but the irascible Uncle is also one of my favorites.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I've mentioned this before, and it's so true -- the thing about listening to the book now compared with reading it when it came out is that I've forgotten so much. So much, In fact, that I kept wondering if I'd somehow missed this one. Until the scene that made me cry. That scene was still in my mind's eye after all these years, but I was caught by surprise when it crept up on me again. I knew it was going to happen but I had no idea it was coming in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Marguerite Gavin did an excellent job on this one, even with the male voices. Kudos to her!

    "Excellent but disappointed"

    The book is excellent but I wish it had ended differently. Very disappointed with the story. Not sure if I will continue the series. I'm not sure why the woman can't be a hero and have someone they love in their life. I wish I could find an author not threatened by love.

    "awful"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have enjoyed the few Kate Shugatk books I've read in the past, but this one was just crap. Unbelievable from beginning to end. People surviving unbeatable odds, sex thrown in just to titillate the female readers, unlikable characters......on and on. It will be a while before reading (or listening) to another Stabenow book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    something different


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Marguerite Gavin?

    yes


    What character would you cut from Hunter's Moon?

    all of them

    "I really"

    Wanted to like this series and the main character. But the plot in this book goes off the rails and never gets back on them - dark and dreary and dumb

    "BRAVO! Excellent from start to finish!"
    Any additional comments?

    I've just listened to the first 10 Kate Shugak books in order and this is BY FAR my favorite. I found it extremely believable, very exciting, a mystery until nearly the end, all set in the amazing Park, which Stabenow makes come alive.

    As do many novelists, Stabenow does a lot of 'preaching' in her books (particularly in Play with Fire, which I despised and couldn't finish). Hunter's Moon had the least of any book so far. It's almost as though she settled down to do an actual adventure-mystery-love story for a change and I, for one, say BRAVO! And Bravo as always to Marguerite Gavin. She has such an amazing range of voices that I forget I'm listening to one person.
