Blake Savage wanted a life with his chosen mate but events spiral out of his control and he is now in charge of his pack and an unknown illness takes its toll on them all. An ancient prophecy is in play and one part is fulfilled. Will that help Blake and his pack in the long run? Wade Collins is a visiting alpha who offers his help to Blake and his pack as vampires attack the small community of werewolves. What neither anticipates is that the ancients are not through with them and it’s up to Wade and Blake to fulfill the next part of the prophecy. They just never anticipated falling for one another in the process.
SAVAGE MOON RISING is the next installment of a really good M/M paranormal series by author Leiland Dale. It picks up after the first book has ended, A PROPHECY OF DESTINY, and delivers the reader into a world of ancient ones, prophecies and a love that will not be denied. The characters are nicely fleshed out, the writing was tight and there was a lot of simmering sexual tension between Wade and Blake that had me squirming a bit. There was also an introduction to the vampires that I found intriguing. I am definitely looking forward to reading more about them in future books. This is an author who knows the world that he has created and the people who populate it. Leiland Dale is fast becoming one of my favorite M/M authors and his latest story is one I know you will enjoy from beginning to end. I do have to recommend that you read the first book, A PROPHECY PF DESTINY, first to see what the events that transpired there lead up to this second book.
Meet Pack Beta, Blake Savage, a man who is thrust into leading his pack when the pack alpha dies. Attracted to a visiting alpha wolf, Wade Collins, Blake doesn’t know what to do when Wade rejects him. When the ancients come to him in a dream, he finds out he is next to fulfill part of the ancient prophecy. Blake is determined to save his pack from the unknown illness, he just doesn’t know if his chosen mate will choose to be with Blake or leave. Can two alphas find a way to co-exist and fall in love? I loved the way Blake and Wade interacted together. Wade was afraid to let himself fall for Blake. Two alphas falling for one another? So not going to happen…well that was the premise anyways to Wade’s thinking. The sexual tension between the two men goes into boiling and it is HOT! I warn you keep your bucket of ice or significant other nearby because you will be squirming in your seat. The secondary characters are very well written and kept the story flowing smoothly. I enjoyed seeing some new faces introduced here and hope they show up in future stories.
SAVAGE MOON RISING is a wonderful tale of prophecies, love and passion plus a mystery that deepens as you read till the very end. The climatic cliffhanger of an ending left me hoping the author won’t keep me in suspense for the next book. If you haven’t picked up this series yet, I highly suggest you race to grab it. It’s a perfect way to be introduced to this author’s writing and delivers hours of reading entertainment.
