Summary from Goodreads:

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...
Moon Spell. A YA Paranormal Romance recommended for ages 16 and up.

It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves?

No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but seventeen year old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth. What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs out of her sightline, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her, with a dangerous attraction, from her decision to uncover the truth.

But as the saying goes ‘the truth will out’ and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves… and the girl they protect.

My Review:

I love werewolf stories and this was a fantastic one! Moon Spell is somewhat different and fun.

Caia is returning to her pack after being away from them for ten years. Most of the pack welcomes her home while others want nothing to do with her. She has a difficult time adjusting to living with the pack again. Then Caia finds out the she is half lykan and half magik. There are secrets, a love triangle and a war going on to add to the mix.

I loved Lucien, I mean who wouldn't? He is the hot alpha male leader and did I mention he is hot? LOL The tension between him and Caia builds up throughout the book and then... well you'll have to read to find out. Caia is a kick butt kinda girl. She stands up for herself and her friends. She doesn't take crap from anyone, even Lucien. I also really like Sebastian, he is a really good guy and a great friend to Caia. Saffron, the fairy, loved her. She was so funny and just kinda popped up with these one liners. All the characters were well written, these were just some of my favorites.

The author really brought this story to life. I connected with the characters right from the start. Once I started reading it, I didn't want to stop. I love how the author brought so many things to this book. There are different paranormal/mythical creatures, mythology, romance, suspense and humor. I liked how it took some time for things to build up, it just made the story more fun to read. I cannot wait to see what happens next!
