‘No one could see what Morgan and Jimmy Daniel had witnessed and live to testify. All the safeguards of the witness protection program weren’t enough. A flaw in the security system—Morgan didn’t know what—and They found her and little brother Jimmy.’
The opening lines of The Hunter’s Moon (Book 1 Secret Warrior Series).
One of my favorite passages from the story:
Morgan fixed her blurry gaze on what appeared to be a black wolf emerging from the trees. The creature was larger than she’d thought wolves were, and she’d understood none remained in these mountains. They were all farther north or west. Somewhere else.
Apparently, she was misinformed. Judging by its size, she guessed this was a male. He stopped before their hideout. Eyes the color of red coals surveyed them before he turned and darted down the trail she’d spotted.
“Holy cow, Batboy. Did you see that?” she whispered.
Jimmy didn’t reply. He prodded her again. She stared at the big brown and gray wolf that took the black one’s place. Where on earth had he come from? The beast turned its furry head at her and Jimmy. His eyes shone with a luminous light, like fireflies in those golden depths.~
Much of my inspiration came from the misty mountains surrounding us on our farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and the secrets those hazy ridges might conceal. Stories of the mountain people, my passion for the past, and Native Americans, also fed my imagination. I wove my love of history and lore throughout The Hunter’s Moon.
From an Amazon reader review: Teen Wolf meets Twilight: The Hunter’s Moon is a wonderful way for Beth Trissel to introduce her young adult series. It’s got something for everyone: romance, action, and a little bit of suspense. I couldn’t put it down and finished the whole thing in two days. I can’t wait for the rest of the series to come out!
Next up, Curse of the Moon (Release date May 4th). Release date for book 3, The Panther Moon TBD.
