Publisher's Summary

For thousands of years, women have been prey. This time, the predators lose.

Book six of the award-winning series now available!

Does fate connect us?

Mass killer Cara Lindstrom is in the wind after a deadly encounter which leaves FBI Special Agent Antara Singh questioning her own sanity and fitness to serve. ASAC Matthew Roarke exiles Singh to Portland to work as an assistant to his old mentor, retiring profiler Chuck Snyder - but a mysterious break-in alerts Singh and Snyder to an active threat revolving around an old case: a series of brutal murders of homeless teenagers on the streets of Portland and Seattle.

Singh and Snyder must go on the road and deep into Roarke and Cara’s pasts to discover a pattern of destiny and interconnection that holds the key to unsolved child murders, past and present.

The Huntress series takes place over six months in the present and in multiple timelines in the past. Shadow Moon is a culmination of those characters and story lines, and it is strongly recommended that the series be heard in order:

Huntress Moon
Blood Moon
Cold Moon
Bitter Moon
Hunger Moon

I hope this isn’t the end...

FOR ANYONE THAT WAS PUT OFF BY THE POLITICAL OVERTONES OF THE PREVIOUS BOOK, THIS BOOK DOES NOT TAKE A POSITION ON EITHER SIDE.

This is book six on the Huntress series. This book is not a stand alone and this series should be read in order.

This author’s writing is so beautifully descriptive. She takes you places with her words that become so vivid and real.

Alexandra Sokoloff writes about the beauty in nature and about the hideous faces that are hidden in the abusers of women and children. In present time this story is more about the female FBI agent (Singh) who was introduced in the previous book. Following her meeting with Cara Lindstrom Singh is unsure if she can continue to be in FBI. Before she can tender her resignation her SAIC gives her a new assignment. He wants her to work with his mentor, Chuck Snyder. Singh discovers a parallel between her boss (Mathew Roarke) and Cara and their paths have crossed many times over the years. For each arrest or saved victim Roarke makes, Cara makes another kill.
Meanwhile there’s an open cold case in Snyder’s files that may be back to terrorize Snyder. It’s up to Singh and Snyder to solve this one
R C Bray narrates this book with three others. Narration
Is excellent.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

Outstanding novel! Bad audio book!

I gave up on the audio book after almost two hours but did read the Kindle book which I rate 4 stars.. The audio book uses RC Bray and three female narrators. Two of the female narrators are horrid. Despite RC Bray narrating the prior five novels in the series alone (and doing so brilliantly), I can see the advantage of teaming him with a single good female narrator. I do not believe I have ever before returned an audio book due to narration issues, so this is a first for me. There are many outstanding female narrators, so why were two poor ones selected along with one excellent one?

SHADOW MOON is released two years after Book 5 (Hunger Moon). I had a series of email exchanges with Ms. Sokoloff about what I viewed as excessively negative political content of Hunger Moon which I rated 3 stars. Most of my issue was with her personal attacks of negative Amazon reviewers. Nevertheless, I continue to be impressed with the outstanding literary talent of this author. Be aware that the six novels in this series must be read in order.

Dark But Enjoyable

The first thing that jumps off of the page with Shadow Moon was the fact that its narration is done by four narrators. And not the one chapter by one narrator and the other chapter by the other – this is a real back and forth. Any male character is voiced by R.C. Bray and the three main female characters are narrated by the three female narrators. It was a change of pace from the other books in this series, but I enjoyed it. I looked up what other people thought and a lot of people were giving this book some grief because of the difference. Bray is still narrating, but the change of pace was welcome and actually made the story easy to follow.

Second, is that the book is going to jump around a lot. There are flashbacks and older stories that really add depth to the story. Sokoloff gives the reader information about the time change, but its still jarring sometimes. I liked it, but the story is definitely non-linear.

Shadow Moon was the most different in terms of storytelling, but the stuff that Sokoloff is talking about is very real. She’s able to capture a real and terrifying underbelly and does it in a viceral and real way. The predators that she talks about throughout Shadow Moon (not Cara by the way) are insanely real and the story was able to bring this sort of reality to light – I think in hopes that if someone else takes a slightly longer or more in depth look around – they can help prevent stuff like this from stealing the childhood from children.

I enjoyed Shadow Moon, but it was dark and menacing. Sokoloff was able to capture that tone perfectly, and it lends to some fantastic reading.

I feel like I didn’t talk a lot about the actual story – but there was enough going on that would spoil it that I can’t really talk about it. The earliest flash backs in the book were disturbing and really set up two of the characters (and their “red string”). The introduction of the older profiler was also interesting, the scenes with him were fascinating to me.

Perfect if you are a gun and man hating feminist

Wow, what a bunch of obvious man-hating, politically charged drivel. I purchased this book, because anything that RC Bray narrates is at least we'll narrated, but even he can make this palatable. The narrators did a great job, considering the material.
I don't know anything about the author, except that she has a serious ax to grind with the male population, especially if they are from a smaller town. The term "deplorables" with all of its charged insidious undertones comes to mind.
I can understand setting up a story and developing characters that support your narrative. But her contempt of men and guns is so obviously painful, that it's laughable. The author
Her description of a visit to a gun show was the equivalent of visiting the den of the devil, where all men were oozing dangerous levels of testosterone and acting as if possessed. Not to mention that this was experienced through the eyes of a male FBI agent.
I also had no idea that our Supreme Court was staffed by two sexual predators, and that, consequently, our justice system could never really address the plight of women.
Virtually all men in this story are portrayed as lecherous, clueless, gun toting rapists. Those that aren't are so conflicted, that it's hard to call them men.
Trucks turn into vans and back into trucks. Jeeps turn into ATVs, making chase scenes difficult to follow, and further erode the credibility of the author.
The abuse of children and women is a terrible blight on our society and needs to be addressed and eradicated. I'm afraid that the obvious bias against all makes and all guns undermines all credibility.

Imaginative approach

The style of this book is a little different from the other FBI/Huntress series but I like it. I think it knits things together well and I feel like it's more of a thinkers story that still has me thinking whereas the others were entertaining but not as deep. A good story that adds some more context to the whole series. I hope there is more.

Outstanding!

I really enjoyed this book, narration was excellent, the mix of voices for characters made it rich.
RC Bray.......my favourite as always, love your work bro, but you still gotta work on your pronunciation of *Maori! (from another novel RC narrated, still annoys me being a Kiwi/Maori myself).
I digress; the novel is well written, Sokoloff is an excellent novelist & this series brings in close to heart the plight of our children, the current, the abused & the lost & forgotten.
It's humanities problem, not just America's.
More please.
