Schoolteacher Claire Morgan is checking
on an errant student when a dog attacks her, or so she
thinks. When a strange man appears and instead tells her
she's been attacked by a lycan, and will turn into one at
the next full moon she thinks he's nuts. Especially when he
tells her it's his job to kill her.
As an agent of NODEAL, a society of
lycan hunters, Gideon March has killed many beasts in his
day. So he's not sure why he can't kill Claire, even though
he knows she's been infected. But he can't pull the trigger,
and he finds himself in the unusual position of helping her.
As he spends more time with her, and
their feelings for each other grow, Gideon knows there's
only one hope for Claire. They must find the alpha of the
lycan that attacked Claire and kill him, or else Gideon will
have to kill her before she shifts, and hunts.
Marked by Moonlight is
the first in a new, to me anyway, series called The Moon
Chasers, and I'm happy to report that I enjoyed this book
very much. Ms. Kohler has created a world that is
fascinating and full of characters that will worm their way
into your heart.
I loved Gideon, and his obvious concern
for Claire, who didn't want to believe his tale of lycans
but couldn't understand the changes coming over her. The way
he convinces her shocked her, and me. Watching them come
together after that was pure magic.
There is also a host of other
characters I hope will be featured in other books, including
Cooper and Darius. If you like a werewolf tale of good
versus evil you’ll enjoy Marked by Moonlight.
I love finding new series, and I'm glad this one came my
