Dark and Dangerous – Cold Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff @AlexSokoloff
Cold Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff

Alexandra Sokoloff has blown me away, with her Huntress/FBI Thriller Series. Huntress Moon, Book I (see my review here) continues through Blood Moon, Book II (see my review here) and I am unable to stop reading. It’s like Lays Potato Chips…you can’t eat just one. Well, I couldn’t read just one. I went through Book II, III and IV on a binge read. And…I see there is a Book V, Hunger Moon, and I aim to get my hands on that one too.

 

The covers are awesome and kudos to the designers. Cold Moon is done by…

MY REVIEW

 

After reading Blood Moon, Book II, by Alexandra Sokoloff, there was no way I could stop. I kept on reading through Cold Moon and Bitter Moon. Now I see we have Hunger Moon, which would be Book V, and I will jump through hoops to get my hands on it.

 

The moon talks to Cara. Does it talk to you? What does it say?

 

We begin with Roarke’s nightmare, waking him. Cara…

 

She faces her own terror in the night, but vows IT will never take her.

 

“Fair as the moon and cold as ice.”

 

Roark’s team functions like a well oiled machine, even when personalities occasionally clash and opinions differ. They always get their ‘man’.

 

Cold Moon takes an even closer look into the depraved, the abused, the lost and those who care about them. Human trafficking of women and children, enslaved in prostitution, bought and sold, used and abused. Who will stand up for them, defend them, save them?

 

How can an online presence affect people, politics, legalities, courts…The anonymity of cyber activism.

 

I do not want to spoil any of the goodies contained in Cold Moon, the third book of Cara and Roarke’s story, so I will just throw out some hints and ask you…what would you do?

Evil…can you see it, smell it, touch it, feel it? Is it alive? Do you do something about it yourself?

 

Is it self defense, if you know evil is coming your way, and you take it out first?

 

My emotions are raging in anger and disgust. I know this goes on, day in and day out, and I wonder if those who, in real life, try to stem the flow of evil feel it is too big, there are too many. One by one they WILL fall.

 

“There is something larger at work…a force beyond the simply human. A female vengeance against outrages.”  Santa Muerte

 

“Sometimes death for one is salvation for another.”

 

I love the dark and dangerous, unique and original, direction Alexandrar Sokoloff takes in this story. I am afraid to google some of the online forums she talks about. I am afraid of what I will find out. Will evil know I am looking and come for me? She continues to thrill and amaze me, disgust and frighten me, leaving me ALWAYS wanting more.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Cold Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff.

Badass Female Vigilante Serial Killer – Blood Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff @AlexSokoloff
Blood Moon (The Huntress/FBI Thrillers) - Alexandra Sokoloff

Alexandra Sokoloff has reeled me in, hook, line and sinker, with her Huntress/FBI Thriller Series. Huntress Moon (see my review here) blew me away and she has kept it up in Blood Moon, Book II.

 

The covers scream out to me…and I do not hesitate to answer…I’m coming.

MY REVIEW

 

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. I don’t want to miss a thing and I don’t think you will either.

 

Cara is a female serial killer, but she is so much more than that. She is a vigilante that Roarke has been chasing since Huntress Moon, Book I of the series. Cara was not born this was, she was created…by The Reaper. She touched me deeply. Right or wrong? 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. Blood Moon makes many questions come to mind as man’s inhumanity to those unable to protect themselves is shoved in your face. Is evil alive? 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 the plan. Cara was Roarke’s incentive to become an FBI agent, since he learned about the tragedy surrounding her at when he was nine years old.

 

Alexandra Sokoloff has written a story that pushes and pulls me in so many directions making me question myself. My morals and ethics. Who is right? Who is wrong?

 

She skillullly weaves the past and the present, sharing the storyline from Cara and Roarke’s perspective. 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 love/hate the ending, BUT don’t think for a minute that the story is done, because Alexandra Sokoloff has so much more coming in Cold Moon, Book III, and I do not want to miss one second of Roarke’s and Cara’s story. I didn’t wait…I immediately began to read it.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Blood Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff.

4 solid stars
Cold Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book three in this series, and you SHOULD read books one and two, Huntress Mon and Blood Moon before this one. It will give you a much better view or Cara and Roarke and what happened between them, and to each other in those books. Not all is recapped here. AND because they are both 5 star reads! This one, though? Not so much. Oh don't get me wrong, its still a powerful, really good read, it just doesn't have the same impact those two books did, on me, at least. Cara is, at least in the beginning, in jail and although they KNOW she killed more men, it comes down to one, single case. THEN, pimps turn up dead, killed with the same blade that killed the victim they want to prosecute Cara for and she is released. Then more turn up dead, and Roarke is left wondering if Cara is to blame, or the teenager who witnessed Cara's last kill. Cara's cousin is missing, and Cara herself is in the wind. Roarke continues to question himself and his career choice. He constantly questions WHY he is doing this, WHY Cara is so deep in his mind, and WHY doesn't he just, like she does, disappear. And I LOVE that. Because you never know which way he is going to go, and you are kept on your toes the whole way through. Told again from Roarke in the past tense and Cara in the present, it grabbed me, but didn't quite pull me along kicking and screaming as books one and two did. I STILL think there is that deeper connection for Roarke and Cara, and I STILL want to see how this pans out. It really is great being kept on my toes for that! A solid, 4 star read. **same worded will appear elsewhere**

oh oh oh!!
Blood Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book two in this series, and you really REALLY should read book one before you read this one. I STRONGLY urge you to read that book anyway, because Huntress Moon was a 5 star read. And so is this one!! Cara is at large, but they don't think she is a danger to anyone who isn't classed as the lowest of all pond scum: drug dealers, traffickers, prostitution ring leaders. Then the body count goes up, and it appears there is a copycat killing in the same way that The Reaper killed Cara's family. And Roarke might need Cara's help to catch him. Told again in the past for Roarke and present tense for Cara, it again gripped me and pulled me along at rocket speed in places! It meant that I had to slow down my reading, because I had to concentrate, and that's always a good thing in my opinion! Cara is still saving and taking lives as she sees fit. Roarke is now chasing both Cara and The Reaper. I loved the part that Cara played in helping Roarke's investigation. I can't word, not properly, what I feel about this book, indeed, this series, even at two books in, and you know how much that PAINS me, but I know this much: these books are pushing my reading way beyond my usual habits, and I am loving them!! I'm not totally convinced that Cara and Roarke's story is finished, even if it ended as it did. I still think there is a deeper connection for these two people that hasn't fully manifested itself yet. I might be wrong, but this is what I'm feeling and you know how I love to share what I feel! Not quite read in one sitting, that darn dayjob got in the way, but still a ... 5 star read! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

love love LOVE this book!
Huntress Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I purchased my copy of this book, via Prime Reading. There comes along, once in a while, a book that pits you out of your comfort zone. Those books are few and far between, and I really REALLY enjoy being pushed out of my comfort zone when it comes to my reading habits!! THIS book, right here! Its different and you all know how much I love different. You also know how much i LOVE getting into the mind of the bad guy, or in this case bad GAL. And you also know how much I dislike present tense books. So I'm sitting here, telling you that I LOVED this book, and here's why it might surprise you. Roarke gets his say in the third person, past tense. But Cara?? She gets HER say in the third person, PRESENT tense. And I truly loved the way the story is told! It took some getting used, flipping from Roarke to Cara, past to present but once I did, the book just flew! The book takes place over 8 days, leading up to the 25th anniversary of Cara's family's massacre. While I'm still unsure what Cara had originally planned for that date, what she DID do, and the way it played out, was brilliant. Roarke's reason for joining the FBI was The Reaper case, that he saw on the news at 9 years old. I loved the way it all came together. Roarke and Cara's story is by no means finished. Cara is now on the Most Wanted list. Whether Roarke will apprehend her, though, is another matter. He is questioning everything: about himself, about Cara, and about his career. And they have a connection that they really shouldn't have. I loved the way Sokoloff tells her story, kinda grabs you, and doesn't let go. I can't see how this is going to end, I really can't but I have book two, Blood Moon, to read next. I'd also like to read something else by Sokoloff, unrelated to this series. Because I read it in one Sunday afternoon, and I didn't move off the sofa the whole time... 5 full stars. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
