All Hallows Moon is the epic sequel to Six Moon Summer. In this book we get to see Rylie's character grow and develop in a new environment and it's very interesting. Reine's writing is still on top form and doesn't disappoint in the slightest The reader is hooked from the first pages and is gripped in Rylies jaws until the very last page. We got to see many more characters come into play and each were very interesting and all had a part to play in Rylies future, be it good or bad.

All Hollows Moon follows Rylie as she goes to live at her auntie's ranch to try and escape her life before the change. Rylie thinks moving will solve all of her problems but instead it adds some more to the equation. After her first change some of her aunts cows are slaughtered and Rylie believes she knows the culprit Rylie thinks she will be able to work away on the ranch and not interact with people if she can help it but her aunt thinks very different. Her aunt decides that Rylie must go to school if she wishes to stay with her. Grudgingly she goes but her inner wolf doesn't like it one bit. She ends up causing trouble on the first day when she lets the wolf lose control. All of her actions are drawing a group of hunters towards her and they will kill her. Things get worse when Seth enrols at her new school and she realises that his family are the group of hunters and she is their prey. His family will stop at nothing until she's dead.

In this novel we really get to see how much the wolf has changed Rylie and how she's always battling it for control. We see how she is becoming more wolf like in herself and how she sees everyone at school as prey. Rylie has to act as normal as possible but when there's a wolf inside you, it won't always rest. She gets into trouble in this book because the wolf takes over, and we get to see how she reacts to it when shes back to being herself. We see Rylie put through quite a bit in this book, we see her pain, anger, sorrow and even panic. It was great seeing this so very detailed and developed character becoming even more complex and realistic.

We learn more about Seth and his family of hunters in this book and it's really interesting. His mother was such a brilliant villain. She was so cold and just plain evil, she didn't care about anything except killing wolves. Even her sons fell down the ladder because of that. Abel, Seth's older brother has a huge scar on his face from when he was bitten by a werewolf. We know that with Seth's help he resisted the wolf and remained human. We truly get to see the piece of work he is, he doesn't care about anything except his family. Seth has to make a big decision in this book, will he betray his family or the girl he loves? It all depends on his answer. We saw their lifestyle and how they were constantly moving and living off the most basic of things all because their calling in life was hunting wolves, they didn't do anything else.

Again the world building was brilliantly done! I want to go to the ranch and explore the grounds, it was just so detailed and described, it really conveyed that homey feeling. You realise why Rylie loves it so much. As far as sequels go this one was great, it kept up the fast paced action from book one and the plot was complex and so good! It really doesn't disappoint readers of the series.

Rylie has grown since her life changing summer camp, but she's still a teenage girl -- with a bloodthirsty animal inside of her. In the last book Rylie was lost and trying to survive, and thought she hasn't fully adapted, you can notice how she's grown. Things are still not easy for Rylie -- her inner struggles feel real for the reader and you can almost smell the wolf at times.

We're seeing a new setting for this book. Rylie is moving to live with her aunt Gwyn in a small town, because the wolf inside her can't handle a big city -- and Rylie can't handle her mother. And since it's not summer anymore, Rylie has to get herself together and attend school as well, which creates new problems for the wolf within. And because Rylie isn't able to restrain herself, all the animals she's killed during her transformations attracts unwanted attention from werewolf hunters -- Rylie's summer crush Seth and his family.

All Hallows' Moon is a smooth and intriguing read with action, love and betrayal bundled up by a great storyteller. Reine has a great way of bringing the characters and settings alive without boring the reader with endless details and descriptions. It's truly a worthy follower to "Six Moon Summer".

The second book in the series follows closely and seamlessly from the first book. Rylie has moved to her aunt's in the country as a) she feels more comfortable in the country now and b) she thinks it will be safer as she is still struggling with trying to live with the wolf inside her. Seth makes a reappearance and it also shows just how you CAN'T choose your family!

The story is once again excellently written, the characters become more in depth and well-rounded and the pace is once again very well paced and smooth.

Book 3 is ready to start tonight!

This is the second of the Seasons Of The Moon collection and follows on nicely from book 1.

The writing is superb and I found myself warming to Rylie more and more as the story progressed and although a teenage werewolf is not usually my thing I have enjoyed both books so far.

I think this is aimed at a more YA age group (and I am certainly no YA!!!) but the plot is so good it is easy to get lost in it.

I am looking forward to reading book 3 as the writing,storyline and pace of the first two books has been truly excellent.

Have read the first two of this box set, and I wasn't disappointed with either of them, which is why I am glad I downloaded the whole box set. Look forward to reading them all.

This book is a little too teenager for my liking but if I were a lot younger id really enjoy this series of books. The main character is tough and its an interesting story.
