Review: All Hallows Moon

All Hallows Moon by S.M Reine
Publication Date: September 5th 2011 (kindle edition)
Genre: YA Paranormal
Pages: 184


Rylie survived becoming a werewolf at great cost. She moves to her aunt’s ranch in the hopes she can enroll in a new high school and quietly continue her life... with a few distinct changes. She transforms into a beast every new and full moon and struggles to control her murderous urges.

Without many werewolves left, it’s hard to stay in hiding. A family of hunters -- Eleanor, Abel, and Seth -- recognize the signs and follow Rylie to her new home. They want to stop her before she murders someone, and the only way to do it is with a silver bullet. Seth soon realizes the werewolf is Rylie, the one monster he failed to kill. Worse yet, he’s still in love with her.

Torn between family and love, Rylie struggles to reconcile her feelings and control the wolf within while Seth fights to do what’s right. But what is right-- obeying desire or duty?

This book just show cases how great this series keeps getting. The intro scene let alone rocks!!! Still in creepy details we see how much pain Rylie goes through every full and new moon, all thanks to one summer at a camp.
She's more fierce yet she still holds dear to her human side, which makes her an amazing character. Not only do we get to see her develop we also get to see through her love interest, Seth's, eyes.
At the end of Six Moon Summer, we got to see through him and that's when I started to like his character. Now I get to see who he is and where he comes from. He's a guy that doesn't want what his family wants, instead he actually wants to go to school and get himself an education. But since he's a hunter traveling and education just don't go together.
Along with his story we get to see how his family runs. His mom, Eleanor, is cruel to the bone. Not only towards Rylie but towards her own son. She doesn't see why he wants to be different which is why she's a little harsher towards him. Plus, it doesn't help she talks to her dead husband.
We also get two other characters, however we don't get to see them in their own point of views. Gwyn is Rylie's aunt that's a tough cookie. She owns a ranch and Rylie thinks it's the best place to take the wolf inside her. I liked Gwyn and I think she'll be good for Rylie. Lastly we get Abel, Seth's older brother, the one who also got bitten once before. He maybe a little creepy as he starts to stalk Rylie around her home and town.
Overall, this was just as great as the first though she doesn't grow through as many moons. There's some humor, action, creepy description of the wolf clawing out, and a romance that truly gets to bloom. Another fun edition to the Season's of the moon series and I can't wait to get to the next one, Long Night Moon. This time I might actually buy a hard copy ^_^.
Totally recommend for the love of things that go bump in the night.

Happy Reading Everybody!
