Synopsis: Otherworldly Creatures. Dazzling Magic. Fiery Romance.

Shiloh Ravenwolf thought she was getting used to the strange events in Whispering Pines, until the full moon brings another surge of supernatural threats to her coastal town. Ferocious wolves, deadly necromancers, and shambling zombies have descended upon the neighborhood, so Shiloh needs to gain control of her magical abilities—fast!

It sucks that she has a crippling fear of the dark, which for a demon hunter can be an epic problem. But she spends so much time wallowing in the darkness, how can she not become a part of it?

When her classmates are attacked by a mysterious creature and her father is murdered, Shiloh vows vengeance. Forcing her phobias aside, she forms an unlikely coven of supernaturally gifted teens to help her eradicate this menace. Except that’s not all Shiloh has to worry about. She’s battling a different monster within herself and struggling not to become the very thing she fights: evil.

But with demon blood inside her—anything can happen…

Review: 4 Stars - Moonlight Mayhem is the second title by Sherry Soule in her Spellbound series. With magic and lots of different paranormal creatures throughout, Soule takes this series up several notches with twists and turns and things I never saw coming!

Since reading the first book Beautifully Broken, I was really looking forward to the second title to see what would happen next for Shiloh and the town of Whispering Pines. The town itself is, in my mind an honorary character due to all the strange things that seem to migrate to it. It’s up to Shiloh to keep the town and the people in it safe. It’s not an easy job, but thankfully she has some really great friends – new and old – to help her out along the way.

This time she’s up against a few new challenges, werewolves, zombies and necromancers and maybe even a bit more. As usual, I don’t want to give anything away, but I believe while I was reading there’s some hints of trouble to come for Shiloh and someone who’s close to her. I can almost feel it. However, that’s the norm for her and the town, there’s always new trouble brewing.

In this one Shiloh’s grown and is changing. She’s realizing many things and is so much more observant. I think it’s because in the first book she’s got so much to deal with in learning about all she’s supposed to do and of her past. And in this one, she has more to overcome personally and for the town. I think I even liked her more in this one because of her growth.

And then we have Trent. I don’t even know what to say about him. He’s dealing with some issues as well, but what can you say after the end of Beautifully Broken? Everyone was bound to have both internal and external scares.

As for the writing, I think that was better in this one as well. I felt like when I finished the book I had blinked a few times and it was over. Not to say that the book was short, because that’s not the case at all, I was just really into the story that when I got to the end of the book I was shocked I had finished it.

Soule has written a fantastic sequel and has left me craving more. With a story that flows and characters that grow stronger and stronger from one book to the next, it gave me a thrillingly great read! I can’t wait to see what she puts her characters and the town through next. If you’ve read the first book, be sure to check out this one soon. And if you haven’t picked up this series yet, you should defiantly give it a try, enjoy!
