Otherworldly Creatures. Dazzling Magic. Fiery Romance.
Shiloh Ravenwolf thought she was getting used to the strange events in Whispering Pines, until the full moon brings another surge of supernatural threats to her coastal town. Ferocious wolves, deadly necromancers, and shambling zombies have descended upon the neighborhood, so Shiloh needs to gain control of her magical abilities—fast!
It sucks that she has a crippling fear of the dark, which for a demon hunter can be an epic problem. But she spends so much time wallowing in the darkness, how can she not become a part of it?
When her classmates are attacked by a mysterious creature and her father is murdered, Shiloh vows vengeance. Forcing her phobias aside, she forms an unlikely coven of supernaturally gifted teens to help her eradicate this menace. Except that’s not all Shiloh has to worry about. She’s battling a different monster within herself and struggling not to become the very thing she fights: evil.
But with demon blood inside her—anything can happen…

Just a disclaimer to begin with I didn’t read the first book of the series so I can’t comment on how good the series thus far is but if the first book is anything like the second, then it is pretty good.

Witches and Zombies and Wolves Oh My!!

To say that there is an abundance of creatures of the night in this book is an understatement. I was waiting for all the characters to become confusing but instead all the additions really added to the story. It was interesting at how town people mentioned in the story kind of rolled with how things changed. Here was various creatures of legend, usually associated with evil, and no one was shocked and it’s not like they were hidden away so well.

The next thing that I liked about the book is Shiloh’s references to Charmed throughout were awesome because I loved that show. Also her inner monologues are great, not too cheesy or annoying. She really is kick-ass despite her fear of the dark, which when you really think about it is the least of her issues that she’s dealing with.

There is romance in MOONLIGHT MAYHEM and a bit of maybe an emerging triangle but it didn’t get too sappy and really contributed to the draw of this book.

All in all I suggest that you check this book out and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.

The third book in the SPELLBOUND series is set for release some time in 2013 there isn’t a cover yet but it has the title DESTINY DISRUPTED.
