Product Description


'The books are appealingly easy reads, and Lori is good at establishing her first-person narrartors as wry and tough.'
-- SFX

'another riveting read...Handeland's prose is brisk, while her saucier sequences seem certain to fog up a few windows.' -- Death Ray

Book Description

Leigh Tyler was once a kindergarten teacher with starry-eyed dreams that turned into nightmares when the bigger mistake she ever made came back to tear her world apart. Now, Leigh lives only for the hunt. Werewolves are her prey, and love is no longer an option. Leigh has been called to Wisconsin for something big. As long as it means killing fanged and furry demons, she’s up for it. But the worst is yet to come, because something stronger and smarter than the average beast is on the prowl . . . and it’s doing Leigh’s work for her. Intoxicating and intriguing, Damien Fitzgerald is making Leigh question her vow never to let another man into her bed, or her heart. Every moment with him brings forth familiar, and dangerous, urges. Urges that may prove too strong to resist. Leigh’s job is a dance with death, and she has no intention of letting Damien become involved and get hurt. Especially now that she knows her enemy is watching from the forest. Waiting for her first wrong step. Praise for Blue Moon : ‘Fantastic, one of the best books I’ve read in a long, long time’ Christine Feehan

4.0 out of 5 stars The Tail keeps spinning 18 Sep 2007
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
The second novel by Lori continuing in her alternate universe of our own world where she skillfully managed to blend ancient myth alongside modern monstrosities where the reader is asked to question as to whom the real monsters were. Wonderfully written although so far all of her female protagonists seem to all have had sexual hang ups only to want to rip the clothing off a specific male character (Love interest) within the first couple of hundred pages. Whilst this may be the case the scenes are delicately written and are there to aid in the further of emotional plot for the protagonists rather than just a free for all that certain other authors seem to do. An interesting read although not one for young people interested in the genre due to the sexual content.

4.0 out of 5 stars When the moon is full 9 April 2005
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
HUNTER'S MOON is a chilling adventure about werewolves, hunters,

and deadly passions. Leigh Taylor was once a starry-eyed kindergarten

teacher who loved life and all that it promised. That was

before her family and her fiancé were brutally murdered by a pack

of hungry wolves or were they more than wolves?

Now, Leigh is a trained hunter, a role that is tailor-made for her;

she has a vendetta against a white wolf with penetrating eyes, eyes

she has seen before. Leigh's hatred for monsters rules her life, she

lives only for the hunt and werewolves are her dominant prey. Love

is something she no longer recognizes, she buried that emotion years

ago. When Leigh is summoned to a small town in Wisconsin, where

werewolves are being killed and eaten, she comes face to face with

her past and quite possibly her future.

Damien Fitzgerald, a drifter with a questionable past, has an

intoxicating pull on Leigh. But something is not right with Damien,

there is a bewildering aura surrounding him. Although Leigh feels

the attraction, he frightens her. Every moment with him brings

forth vaguely familiar, but dangerous urges. Leigh must remain

focused, she can ill afford to get careless as she begins a dance

with death. Especially when she knows her enemy is watching from the


HUNTER'S MOON is Lori Handeland's second book in a series

surrounding the legend of werewolves. The story is craftily

written, with fascinating characters, spine-tingling suspense, a

kick-butt heroine and a simmering romance. The suspense that captures

readers in HUNTER'S MOON makes Dark Moon, the next saga, eagerly

anticipated. As Ms. Handland's writing gains recognition, her name

is being spoken in circles with the likes of Christine Feehan and

Maggie Shane. (RAW Rating: 3.5)

4.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good as the First 16 Jun 2005
By Mouser - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this story we meet Leigh, hard bitten survivor of a werewolf attack perpetrated by the man she had an affir with, which killed her fiance and her family two years ago.

She's the opposite of most of Ms. Handeland's heroines; short, flat chested, but just as egotisitcal (a little refreshing to be honest after years of simpering beauty queens who think they'e ugly).

Just as in the first our heroine meets a yummy half naked man in the woods one night after chasing after a werewolf in Crow Valley, WI.

He is Damien Fitzgerald, mysterious drifter/bartender with a silver ring and a gun behind his toilet with a single silver bullet. By contrast he hs all the ear markings of a werewolf, always showing up just after she meeets brown werwolf who's portecting her, killing other werewolves.

Leigh obsteively has been called to Crow Valley to train last book's heroine Jessie McQuade and Jessie's boyfriend Will Cadotte. It's a little strange how much of a part these two characters play so there aren't as many secondary characters to rely on as red herrings. It drives character development but the plot gets a little saggy in the middle as a result.

Through much talk and a ton of confusing dialogue (it's really hard to keep track of who's talking) we find out that a Super Werewolf is coming. with a special ceremony on some moon the almost impossible to kill wolf shall be reborn (folloing an Ojibwe legend). Um, hello, a new plot, please?

This one is a serial killer cannibal who was cursed to b a werewolf because of his appetites. He is Hector, Leigh's one time infedlity. To become a semi-super werewolf he promised the Ojibwe dark ones a sacrifice-her family.

Now he needs to find Liegh-- his mate, and have sex with her on the night of the Hunter's Moon to become the biggest badass werewolf- impervious to death about as much as the werewolf God.which, you giuessed it, means he's really easy to kill but our heroes will not figure it out until the last minute.

We have the same "is her man a werewolf? Is he not?" And Damien is just nowehere near as charming as Will, but he is funny. I actually preferred him because he does not magically appear naked from the woods, he comes running out of them at full tilt sweaty and disheveled.

Suprirses of surprises as the plot developes we see Leigh making really stupid rookie mistkes that betray her hard-bitten description, just as Jessie did at the end of the last book. Seems Ms. handeland can't back away totally from the helpless female idea of romance novels.

We also find out Hector the supreme werewolf is hiding in town, he could be anyone. When you look back on it you realize only one secondary character had lines. Wait a minute, he didn't! Not a single secondary caracter did in this book. He just had the most description.

Sensual, well paced, but lacking in the genius twists and turns of the previous novel. But it is a series and you must read this one to understand the coming one, and it is nice to see Will and Jessie are just as in love as ever.

It's still much better than most paranormal faire, but I'm a little disappointed in ths after reading the first. The third has promise so I'm definitely holding out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hunter's Moon 4 Feb 2005
By AK - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Impelled by a tragic past, Leigh Tyler has become one of the finest Juger - Suchers on the planet, and due to this capability, when Jessie (Blue Moon) needs training, Edward summons Leigh to be her guide. The teacher may have a bit to learn from her student though. After all, Jessie and her lover, Will, just killed the wolf god. Now these three, and the enigmatic Damien must join together to stop the Wendigo, the ultimate lycanthrope. Making it all the more dangerous is this villain's unholy desire for Leigh herself, a passion that will force her to go to confront the deepest darkness; either to be consumed or triumph.

**** This book and its predecessor have all the hallmarks of an upcoming classic series; focus is sharpley maintained, the heroes are flawed and compelling, the tension level taut, yet lightened with wit. Be sure and add both Hunter's Moon and Blue Moon to your keeper shelf- and make room for Dark Moon, the third book coming soon. ****

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good 3 Oct 2005
By Neker - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a continuation from Blue Moon. Jessie and Will return but take a side role to Leigh. Leigh is a Hunter who seems to live to kill werewolves, especially after a tramatic experience from only a few years previous. Upon Leigh's arrival in a small town, where she will show Jessie the ropes, she encounters a werewolf. She tracks the creature through the woods, shoots, and burns the body. During the fire she is surprised by a strange half-naked, beautiful man (I know--an obvious copy from the first book; she even mentions the top button of his jeans being undone--also from the first book). The guy is Damien and he is obviously involved in the strange occurances of this town. Of course, Leigh and Damien are drawn to each other and things become steamy. Read the book if you want to know more.

I gave it only four stars because Leigh's character drove me batty. She too hard nose and tough. Sometimes you want to see a least a touch of tenderness, even if it is hidden from most.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent paranormal romance 10 Dec 2004
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Following the slaughter of her parents and her fiancé by werewolves, former kindergarten teacher Leigh Tyler lives to kill these vile monsters. Her elderly mentor Edward Mandenauer orders her to leave Canada to train a rookie Jessie McQuade in Crow Valley, Wisconsin. Reluctantly she heeds his demand, but upon arrival kills a werewolf.

Leigh and Jessie are two alpha females ready to brawl at the drop of a hat. As Leigh learns that apparently a rogue werewolf is killing her kin, an unprecedented scenario, she is also upset that Jessie loves Native American history Professor Will Cadotte, as their line of work does not lend itself to caring relationships. However, she is unable to follow her own advice as she is extremely attracted to bartender Damien Fitzgerald though he shows traits that seem paranormal.

This sequel to the delightful BLUE MOON is an excellent paranormal romance with the twist that the two tough guys are females. The story line contains a deep mystery as the werewolf hunters wonder why fratricide is occurring. Readers will enjoy the return of Jessie and Will (see BLUE MOON) while the romantic subplot between Leigh and Damien blends in well with the monster theme so that sub-genre readers will appreciate this deep supernatural suspense thriller.
