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…
Moonlight Mayhem is the second book in the Spellbound series by Sherry Soule. Whereas the first book concentrated on ghosts and demons, this one was more about werewolves. I absolutely loved the first book in the series, but I didn't connect with this one as much.
There is still the creepy vibe like the first book had. There is literally danger creeping around everywhere in Whispering Pines. There are people being attacked or murdered left and right. I don't think I would be leaving my house if I lived there. After Shiloh's father is murdered, all she can think of is vengeance. She knows that these attacks aren't from regular animals like the town officials lead people to believe. It is Shiloh's responsibility to protect the town from supernatural threats, and that's a lot of pressure to put on a 16 year old girl.
At the beginning of the book, Shiloh and Trent are broken up. With Trent's uncle being Shiloh's mentor, they are bound to see each other. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of romance involved. They do have some nice training scenes together though. Some interesting secrets come out about Trent that I didn't expect.
For those that love action, you won't be disappointed. There are a lot of suspenseful, action packed moments. There are some new characters in this book that were interesting. I thought the book was a little predictable though. There were some loose ends but I'm sure they will be tied up in the next book. I just hope we see a little more of Trent and Shiloh's relationship.
