*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.*

Blood Moon is the third book in the Moon series by Lisa Kessler. I knew from the second book that this one would be about Nadya and Gareth. It seemed improbable and too convenient that Sasha’s sister would be a soul mate to a member of the same pack as Sasha’s soul mate. I mean, what are the odds of that with all the women in the world?

It wasn’t as suspenseful as the previous books, but it was still a good love story. In previous books, I was constantly worried about the physical well-being of the main female character. This one wasn’t like that because the threat was more her health than from a particular person. I guess I could have been worried about her health, but I never really was. It didn’t seem to me that she was ever at risk of dying until almost the end of the book.

Despite my doubt of the premise and the lower level of danger, I enjoyed reading Blood Moon.

Since the other books didn’t include any love triangles, I liked that this one had another pack member who also wanted Nadya’s affection.

I also liked that a reader can jump right into the series. The author gives you plenty of information to read it as a stand-alone.

The characters are all really well-developed, even minor characters.

I recommend Blood Moon to readers who like tasteful paranormal romance about werewolf mates who have to overcome a lot of obstacles to be together. The Moon series gives a good mix of action and romance.
