Blood Moon RISING (Blood Moon Series Book 2)
With these books I really think you have to read them in order. Starting with this one rather than Huntress Moon would make you miss so much of what's going on that I can't imagine liking the story as much. May contain spoilers from book one: The book picks up shortly after the first book drops off. Cara is gone and Special Agent Roarke with the help of his team are bringing down some of the bad guys that sh Why do I read books before the series is finished!?!?
Cara is gone and Special Agent Roarke with the help of his team are bringing down some of the bad guys that she wormed out. Roarke knows he has to arrest Cara when she is found but he is conflicted. This could have gone all moody with Roarke mooning away after a beautiful woman, but the author gives you enough that you really don't want her caught either. The tension that is felt is beyond sexual attraction. It's hard to explain exactly why these books work so well, but they do.
Vigilante or not, Cara is a strong character. I do wish the books would give us even more of her. The trauma of her life is just unbelievable. She has nothing or no one-and hasn't since her family was murdered. I said in the first book that fans of Criminal Minds will enjoy these books and this one was even better than the first one. Roarke brings in his old mentor from the BAU and the behavior behind "the Reaper" is fascinating to read as in unfolds.
I'm curious to how the author is going to wrap up the story-line. Will Cara go free? There are so many ways this story could go I received an arc copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This feature alone creates tremendous tension, which is present for much of the book. Add in the character of Cara Lindstrom, the unstable enigmatic survivor of familicide 25 years previous, and we have pervasive potential for explosiveness.
Sokoloff continues to work magic with her imagery, adding atmosphere and menace to the proceedings. I was happy to again see the moon icons at the beginning at each chapter, which serve as a countdown to a fantastic finale. The writing is so pacy that I finished the book in three days, fast for me. The climax was simply downright thrilling; the last scene was oh so poignant. Book 3, here I come! A note to all. This is a series one must read in order. View all 23 comments.

I see a bad moon a-rising I see trouble on the way Roarke, however, has reason to believe that the Reaper has resurfaced after a twenty-five year hiatus, and he is determined to put an end to the horrendous familicide before the next full moon — the blood moon. Yet, Roarke is haunted by Cara, to say the least.
He knows that she is a disturbed individual who needs to be taken off the streets, but he understands her motives and seems hesitant to capture her.
His reticence has forged an uneasy tension between Matt and Agent Damien Epps, who does his best to keep him on track. His nightmares are incredibly vivid! Besides Roarke and Epp, whom we met in the first book, we get to know more of the team. Antara Singh is a fabulous researcher. Techs Lam and Stotlemyre are practically joined at the hip, but are very, very good at what they do. We do see more of profiler Chuck Snyder, who is someone Roarke relies upon and whose judgment he trusts. Character development, plot, mood, and setting — this book has it all. Oh, goodness, the story. Then, I dare you to stop after the first two books.

It is highly recommended that you read these books in sequence as the storyline continues on from where book one leaves off. The novels in this FBI thriller series include: Book5 Expected Publication Twenty-five years have passed since a savage killer terrorized California, massacring three ordinary families before disappearing without a trace. Cara is the sole survivor of a killing spree by a man dubbed "the Reaper" that included the massacre of her entire family.
Cara was five at the time and that one horrific night has shaped her existence, her outlook and her quest for eliminating evil. Cara Lindstrom, is now wanted by the FBI for brutal crimes of her own, and Special Agent Matthew Roarke is on the hunt for her, but it had been Cara who had lead them to a trafficking ring, to free victims from a Latino Residential Brothel.
There is definitely a connection between Roarke and Cara. Cara Lindstrom was a killer. She hunted and killed brutally, a vigilante, her victims hand-picked for their crimes ie. Child molesters, sex traffickers and terrorists. The story ends with a cliff-hanger…but good! This is proving to be an excellent little series. View all 49 comments. Mar 13, S.

West rated it it was amazing Shelves: This series is filled with thrills and chills and leaves you wanting more. I didn't think it possible but I actually enjoyed this one even more than the first one although I wished there had been more of Cara. She is such a complex character and I couldn't help but feel a strong, positive connection to her despite not even being able to adequately imagine what she's gone through. This book continues with FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke still on the hunt for Cara Lindstrom, an elusive vigilante who Roarke struggles to keep firmly planted in the perpetrator category.
Cara was five at the time and that one horrific night has shaped her existence, her outlook and her quest for outing evil; the Monsters and Beasts that live among us. This was a hypnotic read, I was totally enthralled It's so well written and the characters are real and complex. While evil is apparent in humanity and ever present in this book And can actually result in making people safer.
Ridding the world of scum. Does this mean that person should be punished? These are all moral and ethical questions that Roarke battles with as he gets closer to capturing Cara. And she was right. There are so many ways in which this could go and it's going to be hard waiting to see how this one ends. View all 28 comments. Oct 25, Phrynne rated it it was amazing.
This is proving to be an excellent little series! I am not sure how I came across it now but I am very glad I did. It is unusual in that one of the main characters and the love interest is a murderer. And the guy who loves her is the cop. So I am not sure where it is actually going to end up but it is really fun finding out! I read this book in more or less one day and did not want to put it down. The author writes well and the action is very well paced.
Add in a very nasty serial killer and you This is proving to be an excellent little series! Add in a very nasty serial killer and you end up with something really, really good. Recommended to anyone who likes a good cop thriller. View all 5 comments. Mar 27, Wendy'sThoughts rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I was taken by the first book in this series, Huntress Moon https: It was full of intrigue, woven with skill and left me wanting more, more, more. I missed the chance to read it through NetGalley by hours The Book Gods smiled at me, though, as another opportunity appeared to read it and I leapt at the chance.
Blood Moon picks up right where the first book ends There are "catch up" references to the original tale; however, it feels more for the sake of keeping all the details together for the reader. In this book, the main characters are all there, fighting the good fight against evil It is the idea of evil and how it shows itself The question is asked so many ways through the FBI agent and then the survivor of one of the most horrific killings I was so taken by the structure and writing.
I received everything I needed to be right there with these people. The tension was strung tight and kept my mind racing to the end. You know you are really captivated when you periodically sneak a peak at the bottom of the page to see if something big is coming If you like police procedures with conflicted and troubled characters torn There is serial profiling, real data and enough to make you take notice of your surrounding, the people around you and cause you to be aware. There is an ending of sorts Our Agent will be hunting for his Suspect For more Reviews, Free E-books and Giveaways.

Meanwhile the maniac who slaughtered whole families all those years ago, is at it again. The main FBI detective who is assigned to tracking her down has now inherited the old case as well because of the connection between the two. Through his investigation into her he has learned that she has become quite proficient at tracking just these types of twisted The only survivor, of a twenty five year old unsolved, serial killing case, is on the run from the FBI for her own recent vigilante killings. Through his investigation into her he has learned that she has become quite proficient at tracking just these types of twisted zealots, so he concludes that it may be in his best interest to find a way to secretly keep her in the loop.
After all, she above all others, has got a merciless vendetta to fill. Mary and I are buddy reading this series and it has not dissapointed so far. A fast paced, suspenseful thriller with engrossing characters that have enough depth to carry the story, without having to dwell too much on the gruesome facts. Looking forward to the next chapter in the life of our magnetic heroine, defender of the weak.
It is a different twist from the norm to be rooting for an allusive, female serial killer. Bray does a good job with all the voices and handles the fast pace well. Oct 31, Yellagirlgc rated it really liked it Shelves: I loved the first book in this series and moved right into reading this one seconds after finishing book one. A female serial killer that is more of a vigilante.
The FBI is determined to bring her in before she kills again. Jun 10, Janet rated it really liked it. I can't say too much about this because really the storyline just continues on from where book one leaves off. We have more of Special Agent Roarke in pursuit of Cara Lindstrom, a delicious anti hero, whose mission it is to see justice served in her own inimitable way. As an audience, it's wrong, but it's kind of right too. Again, the book moves at a thrilling pace with enough tension and suspense to keep the pages turning long into the night. Ok, I admit, I may have locked a door or two and hidden under the duvet listening out for any suspicious sounds!
If you read, you'll understand Once again we're treated to the same bunch of characters making up a terrific team of sleuths and quite honestly I'd like to 'road test' some of the hotels they stay in!! Overall, it's a fun, albeit slightly terrifying read, with more than enough intrigue to take me straight to book three. I really need some answers! Again, thanks to the author, publisher, Netgalley for the ARC.

Nov 08, Sherry Fundin rated it it was amazing Shelves: I am so excited to be back with Special Agent Matthew Roarke, kicking down doors and taking down the bad guys, as his hunt for Cara continues. I love action from the opening page, getting me fully invested in the story and Blood Moon has it in spades. This book picks up where Huntress Moon, Book I, left off. It does fill in some blanks from the first book, but I will tell you now, I am so happy I started at the beginning.
Cara is a fe I am so excited to be back with Special Agent Matthew Roarke, kicking down doors and taking down the bad guys, as his hunt for Cara continues. Cara is a female serial killer, but she is so much more than that. Cara was not born this was, she was created…by The Reaper. She touched me deeply. Who are we to judge?

She is exorcising her demons the only way she knows how, saving innocent lives along the way. Life is not black and white, but many shades of gray. Does it have a physical presence? How far should they, the FBI, go to draw her out? Roarke has conflicting feelings, but comes up with a plan.
Alexandra Sokoloff has written a story that pushes and pulls me in so many directions making me question myself. My morals and ethics. The investigation takes them to surprising places, the clues and evidence leading them in unexpected ways. This is not your typical police procedural. Reading all the evidence takes a meticulous and detailed mind, thinking outside the box. I think it takes a special kind of person, whether you are deciphering the clues as a reader or creating them as a writer.
Alexandra Sokoloff is able to ramp up the intrigue, my curiosity, the suspense, and my anticipation to a horrifying, frantic level, making me wonder how this can possibly end. Would you care if the traffickers, rapists, and pimps were offed? Would you go out of your way to find the vigilante who protects children who are unable to protect themselves and others have cast aside? The characters come to life in a way I never anticipated. I loved them, I hated them, I worried about them, I raged at them, I fretted with fear and terror, and I wished they would go down in flames, and I mean that literally.
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Blood Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff. To see more visit fundinmental Apr 16, Pat rated it it was amazing. Holy crap that was a doozy. It started with a bang and went nuclear from there! Roarke's team in the San Francisco FBI office are still hunting for Cara Lindstrom, the beautiful and enigmatic but deadly sole survivor of familicide 25 years ago when she was five years old. Now she hunts people who prey on the weak. Her latest victim is a nasty mean pimp. He knows she must be stopped but he can't bear the thought of her in prison. The rest of the team shadow Roarke thinking Holy crap that was a doozy.
The rest of the team shadow Roarke thinking she will try to make contact with him. They finally come up with a plan to trap her. They will find a family killing that is similar to the Reaper killings from 25 years ago and pass it off as the real thing hoping that it draws Cara out to kill the Reaper. They find the perfect candidate in Reno.
The only problem is, Roarke is wondering if it isn't really the Reaper after all. Why now after no activity for 25 years? Is it a copycat? Roarke is really struggling psychologically now, his decision making is off and even his sidekick Epps almost doesn't trust him anymore. Soon another family is slain and all hell breaks loose. I don't want to say more about the plot but it is pretty full on and exciting. The ending though, wow, that threw me. I'm not even sure how the series can continue now. But continue it does so its on to book 3 to find out what gives. Now it appears that the mass killer from twenty-five years ago has inexplicab Review: Now it appears that the mass killer from twenty-five years ago has inexplicably returned, with more expertise, more control--and his still unsatisfied agenda.
How many more families will suffer. I don't recommend reading this before you read the first book, even though the major events are summarized adequately. You just won't understand the character dynamics. They're somewhat sidetracked when there are signs that The Reaper, the unknown person who massacred three families in California 25 years ago, may have resurfaced. Agent Roark I don't recommend reading this before you read the first book, even though the major events are summarized adequately.
Agent Roarke is such a complex character. He has a special sensitivity and connection not only to The Huntress but other strong forces good and evil and it makes him vulnerable and more interesting. His relationship with Agent Epps, so symbiotic in the first book, is tested here as Roarke at times seems to lose his objectivity.
The tension was constant throughout the investigation not only between these two but also from the parallels of the two cases. I thought The Huntress was daunting but The Reaper was absolutely frightening. I was just as intrigued by this story as I was with the first. Most of it is set in San Francisco, which was vividly brought to life through the exceptional writing skills of Sokoloff. I've visited the city at least seven times and felt areas like Haight-Ashbury were captured with such precision I was transported back there for a time.
This is an extraordinary story with enigmatic characters that I find incomparable and writing that is almost lyrical in its prose. I can't wait for the next book because the story continues. Roarke and The Huntress aren't done yet. I believe that the highest praise is afforded when someone changes your mind or cracks open a door into a world that you never knew existed. With two quick, dynamic strikes she has converted the unwashed heathen that would be me and made him a fan - not only of her own work but of the suspense genre.
Sokoloff writes with passion, power, and velocity.

And, according to Revelations 6: In all three cases, it's clear that the moon turning red as blood precedes a grave reckoning. With only these three passages in mind, it's easy enough to interpret every single solar or lunar eclipse as a potential sign of the world's end. So, why shouldn't you? Live Science doesn't want to tell anyone what to believe, but we do like to share facts and stories that can help people make more informed decisions.
So, here's one fact that makes us feel better: After millions possibly billions of prior blood moons, the world has not ended yet. Thanks to the predictable orbits of the Earth and moon, every calendar year sees a minimum of four eclipses — two solar and two lunar, according to Earthsky. Some years may have many more, up to a maximum of seven was the last time that happened, and will be the next time it occurs. But whether you look at the minimum or maximum annual number, there have still been tens of billions of eclipses since the Earth and moon formed about 4.
Somehow, our planet has survived through all of them. The total eclipse and perhaps the end of the world will occur between 3: A blood moon photo taken on Apr.
