I Want Some More! 31 Oct. 2008
By Chantay W. - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Bite the Bullet by L.A. Banks, government solider, Sasha Trudeau is back and the action is not far behind! Soldier by day, wolf by night...not necessarily, Sasha Trudeau is straight solider through and through, first and foremost, only considering her wolf as an afterthought. But of course, the wolf inside of her is quite strong and will not go unnoticed or ignored for long. The moon sings a seductive song her wolf finds simply irresistible. On top of having a slight conflict between the two beings within her, Sasha and her crew have to fight against rogue wolves and a poisonous toxin that is spreading rapidly throughout the rogue wolves blood.

Add to that one Max Hunter, Sasha's "intended" mate, Hunter, is considered a loose cannon by his tribe because of a mishap, a very big mishap that occurred at birth. When things go awry, Hunter again has to face the demons of his past. During such a time of peril, Sasha needs Hunter but because of the mishap, he may be a danger to Sasha, her crew, his tribe and other innocent beings. And so begins the race against time for Sasha Trudeau and her crew to isolate and contain while protecting the innocent.

Bite the Bullet is book two in the Crimson Moon Novels by L.A. Banks. This book has an explosive mixture of action, passion, and politics. The words action and passion go together nicely, but insert politics and that creates a brand new dynamic, one Banks wove into the series quite cleverly. With her use of wolves, werewolves, vampires and mythical creatures including the fae, dragons, unicorns and a host of other beings, politics takes on a shape that will definitely have readers nodding in agreement to parallels that are clearly visible to real world happenings.

Readers who read book one, Bad Blood, will enjoy the growth of main character, Sasha Trudeau. She is increasingly becoming aware of her attraction for Max Hunter and learning to embrace her inner wolf. I highly recommend Bite the Bullet by L.A. Banks which will I predict will make many lists as being the "must read" book of the year.

Action packed & fast paced 22 Oct. 2009
By Legequotidie - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a huge L. A. Banks fan, and was thrilled to pick up the Crimson Moon series. Book 2, Bite the Bullet, picks up immediately where Book 1 left off (so if you haven't read Bad Blood in a while, it may take a bit of patience to ease into BtB). Banks' writing is lush, and her character development/interaction is complex. Her action scenes move in bright flashes to reflect the intense nature of the battles. Her world building in this book show fantastic potential--I eagerly await the 3rd book.

Although the nature of the story (the battle between the noble Shadow wolves and demonic Weres) encourages heavy action scenes, I often found myself having to re-read pages to follow what exactly happened, who was involved, the result of the battle, where they were going after, etc. This writing style makes for very vivid fights, but could use a bit more clarity. I have a similar complaint for the change in perspective; Banks switches between Sasha and Hunter to her team in New Orleans with only a line break to signal the shift (rather than asterisks or other embellishment). I found myself continually thinking that this series is made for television.

Bite the Bullet 5 Nov. 2008
By Lisa Lanausse - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sasha Trudeau's life will never be as she knew it before finding out that she has Shadow wolf DNA in her genes...
Demon-infected werewolf blood is still being sold on the black market. A double cross between species is in the offing. Brother will turn against brother as the infection spreads. Sasha must find the strength to mercifully eliminate the very real threat of her demon infected mate to her life as well as deduce who is selling the infected blood on the black market, and use her skills as a diplomat to defuse the threat of an all-out war between Shadow wolves and werewolves.
As if these factors aren't enough, Sasha must also deal with the fact that her own body betrays her. When she goes into heat, will she stay true to her demon-infected mate, or give in to the temptation that Shogun represents?

Banks Does it Again! 28 Oct. 2008
By Dragon Rider - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Having been introduced to the Vampire Huntress books and fallen in love with them, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a new series by the same author. It had to be good, didn't it? I wasn't disappointed by the first one and this one just moved the whole story up a notch or maybe two. Once again, Sasha is in the midst of a operation to save wolfkind and herself, at least that's how I'm reading the basic scenario. Two strong male characters just add to the mix of human/werewolf/infected werewolf - what a combination! I know that I had started to read five minutes after I received my copy and didn't put it down till I finished. Lunch was very late that day,LOL and I didn't even apologise.

In the sequel to "Bad Blood" Crimson Moon series - Special Ops soldier -Sasha Trudeau returns with a more deadly challenge to face in "Bite the Bullet"

There is an all out war of demon infected rogue wolves against human and paranormal realms. Sasha's wolf is mounting; however she desperately fights to suppress her desires. Her human nature is constantly at war with her inner wolf because she's a military trained squad leader of the PCU - Paranormal Containment Unit. As a soldier she has a difficult time surrendering her control to a side of her she views as uncontrollable. Sasha's mission is critical. She must gather Intel, hunt and destroy the Demon Infected Werewolves, while isolating the virus on the black market from creating total mayhem on the world.

A war of supernatural supremacy is at hand. Meanwhile, Max Hunter faces his own war as Alpha pack leader of Shadow Wolf Clan; He's battling to fight possible infection as the demon infected toxin has been setoff in his blood stream. He must use sheer will and determination to overcome it in time to help Sasha exterminate DIW and any supernatural threat to humanity.

"Bite the Bullet" is a fast paced, action packed, suspense that will thrill you with its crazy twists and turns. L.A. Banks "BTB" reveals a web of betrayal, trust, truth and lies in an intensely sexy setting with a special breed of werewolves.
