Wow

I got this book via audiobook boom. The narration was very well done. Loved Mena, Phoenix and Alex. Can't wait for the next book. The twist and turns in this story kept me wanting to shirk my duty and just listen to the whole story at one time. But discipline kept me from doing that. But when I got back to it. I listened until the end. The only problem I have with the book is the cliffhanger. I hate them. Just finish the story and create another one with the same characters. The minds that went into developing this story can write one without cliffhangers and just tie the next story to the first.

The love triangle between Mena, Phoenix and Alex continues to draw me in. The deception, angst, and intimacy between them all is astounding. The storyline has so many twists and turns that the mystery of what happens next keeps you listening until the very end.

Wonderful PNR

Enjoyed all the twists and turns in this PNR love triangle. The intimacy is hot. The mystery of who is behind the betrayal keeps you in suspense.

Love it

Would you listen to Midnight Moonrising again? Why?

Yes. It is a great story and the characters are done so that they stick with you

What was one of the most memorable moments of Midnight Moonrising?

When Phoenix actually admitted to feeling love.

What does Pyper Down bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She gives each character her best. And helps bring them to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I just didn't want to shut it off.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend this book. Also recommend reading the prequel first to get the most out of it.

Midnight Moonrising

Would you consider the audio edition of Midnight Moonrising to be better than the print version?

Yes because it's over 450 pages long. I never would've read a book that size.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Too many to just pick one

Which character – as performed by Pyper Down – was your favorite?

same

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

Didn't find it useful that many were sleeping with her.

Midnight Moonrising by K. S. Haigwood , Anne Conley
I usually stay away from audible books because they are such a hassle to get over to my tablet.
This one transferred and was waiting for me! Other have me and the author stumped for weeks til they send me a different format.
This book starts with Mena, her ex's funeral. He was the pack leader and how she's the leader. None of her friends knew he was a werewolf.
Others in important positions have her back and she won't be going to jail at all...
Her inner wolf wants her to do other things and she is strong...
She needs a right hand man and Darrin fills the spot but 27 others want the spot also. He orients her to the duties and other questions she has about the pack.
Her inner wolf wants to kill Phoenix so she can have Alex, the detective to herself.
They hope the witches have the answers to the killings...There are a lot of other creatures introduced that help also.
What I do like, even though to me it's all a fairytale is that there are problems and I like the way they find creative solutions to them.
Think I would like to read the next book if it's the end of the series but it's not really my genre but I enjoyed the series so far.
I received this review book from the author and this is my honest opinion.

Pleasantly Surprised!

To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first started this book. A new author is sometimes scary to me because I know what I like and change is a big deal to me. However, I may have just found a new favorite author!

Werewolves, vampires and other supernatural creatures are on my top list and Midnight Moonrising has it all. Unlike some of my other favorite supernatural books though, this book seems like it could be as close as you can get if there actually were supernaturals lurking about in the ‘real world”. The characters are fun, sexy (I think I’m in love with Phoenix) and they can be a little crazy at times. There are many twists in the storyline that will have you at the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next.

I’m excited to find out what happens to Mena, Alex, Phoenix and Ace!!

Read it! Just dooo it!

RIVETING BOOK 1 STANDS ALONE, BUT READ THE PREQUEL

Any additional comments?


I was given this book free for an unbiased review.

Great series! I was introduced to a new world of Werewolf, Vampire and Witch society. Ancient enemies trying to unite while navigating new leadership, love triangles, revenge and betrayal. I didn't read the prequel so the first third of the book I knew there was a background I was missing but it didn't interfere with the unfolding story. Midway through I was hooked. There were a lot of things happening to a lot of different characters. Not everything had closure in my opinion, but my guess is that the next book will see them through. I was left with such compassion for both Phoenix and Ace, and know I would be hopelessly lost if I was in Mena's situation. The ending left me satisfied enough to call it (almost) a HEA but with a thirst for an answer to an obvious dilemma.

Narration was superb. There was a run of chapters that pulled my crazy card, though. Every time the dialog said they laughed or chuckled a response, the narrator tossed in a chuckle and it was always the same sound regardless of the character, which quickly became annoying.

Definitely, 2 THUMBS UP!

Excellent Story

I received this audio book free for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book the authors gave us so much that I bought the second book. Haven't quite finished it yet, but there is only a couple hours left. Haigwood and Conley evidently have a great team to have come up with such a great story. Mena and Phoenix and Ace. Oh and don't forget the cop. What a combination. At the end of the book, I'm not sure who I was rooting for. Maybe Phoenix. But, once you get into book number two, you might change your mind, or you will be as confused as me as to who to choose. Anyway, Pyper Down did a great job of portraying each of the characters. I really enjoyed her narration. Looking forward to more books by these authors.

Wow! What a Rollercoaster Ride!

This is a very unique Paranormal romance! There is a lot of action, suspense, murder, love, humor, & plenty of twists and turns! It was hard to put down.

There are werewolves, vampires, witches, and other shifters. I found Mena's wolf pretty crazy and sneaky. Some of their dialogues were pretty funny!

The plot is even more complex then I expected it. The vampire falls for her, the detective falls for her (or her wolf). Then someone else enters the picture to help but also makes things impossible for all of them.

The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life. There is a bit of a cliffhanger but I'm looking forward to her next book! The characters are well developed and the story flows well and grabs you and keeps your attention until the conclusion.

Fantastic story

I Couldn't wait to get stuck into this book and I wasn't disappointed.
Mena, after being bitten by her husband then killing him, is now a newly turned werewolf and also the Alpha, her heart wants the high vampire Phoenix but her wolf wants the human homicide detective Alex who knows nothing about supernaturals! Can she really unite vampires and wolves whilst learning how to be an alpha?
As though that isn't enough, there's betrayal within her pack and her wolf is hiding a secret from her that could result in death and destruction for everyone, Mena has till the next full moon to find a way to take back control of her wolf or forfeit not only her life but also those joined to her thanks to the Nexus!
There's so much happening in this book with Mena juggling her new life, her conniving wolf and two men. I love Mena's character and couldn't help but feel sympathy for her, Alex and Phoenix, just which of them will she choose ? Can she really have either of them ? The twists and turns and unexpected surprises make this a very addictive read and I for one couldn't get enough.

Team Ace!

A good fast paced story with plenty of romance and swoon worthy men! I dare you to try and pick just one...

With so many alpha males it would have been easy for the female lead to become dominated as in similar stories but the author created such a strong and take no sh!t Alpha Female that this would never happen

I'm jumping right in to the next of the series
