Tess Noncoire has made a pact with the powers that be and has given up her dreams in order to save her loved ones. Now as Tess deals with the aftermath of the opening & closing of the faery leak, she finds herself pitted against an evil psychopath who is killing women left and right in Portland. But first Tess needs to figure out where the leaks are coming from before she takes on Mr. Big and Nasty. With her personal imp by her side as well as her allies, Tess may have more than she can handle at the moment as the danger comes straight to her door. The question is, will she be able to handle it and survive?

This was the first book in this series I have read and I have got to admit, I was a bit lost while I read this. Past events in the first three books are mentioned and it was quite a struggle to figure things out. Ms. Frost is a talented writer who delivers a kick butt heroine & some intriguing secondary characters that kept the story moving smoothly.

Meet Tess. She is a popular writer and a celestial warrior who can kick some major butt. Now that she has fixed the faery leak, she is on track to have her life back. But alas, things never seem to work out like that and Tess finds herself one step behind an enemy that is just as determined to destroy Tess as she is to get rid of it. I really, really enjoyed Tess a lot. She is one kick butt heroine and I really enjoyed her scenes alone and with secondary characters. She is very well rounded and the author really lets her shine within the pages of FOREST MOON RISING.

This is one action packed story that this reader got sucked into. Even though I felt lost at times, I enjoyed the way the story went, especially when some danger surfaced and Tess finds herself with new powers she has no idea how to control. P. R. Frost is a talented author who is knows her characters inside and out. Tess is very intriguing and I really loved her personal imp, Scrap. It brought shades of The Hollows Series by Kim Harrison that I love. If you enjoy a new series that delivers a fun ride from start to finish, then this may be the one for you. I am thinking to start at the beginning of the series and see if it all makes sense to me and maybe read this one again.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of the book.
