Habor Moon #2 Hunter's Dawn by Traci Mitchell (Young Adult, Paranormal Romance)

6th October 2011, kNight Romance Publishing 
Review copy 

Young Adult, Paranormal Romance 

Themes: high school life, being different, wereweolves, shape shifters, misunderstanding, tension, high peril, moderately strong teen romance, a little violence, mild swearing, some humour

The story continues with Deanna and Eric in the small town of Twin Habor. A sudden animal attack throws the little town of Twin Harbor in an uproar, but it's Deanna who doesn't take the news well. After reading bits and pieces of a tatty old hand written journal, she begins to consider the possibilities that Eric might be the killer. Deanna's birthright is a Hunter. The very people who kill dangerous and evil werewolves. With no hope on the horizon, Deanna finds herself caught in a horrific situation and she must accept what she is to become. Can Eric's love for Deanna save her from herself? Or him? 

Nayuleska's reasons for loving Deanna...she ignores using the materials given to her until it's essential for her to have more knowledge, which is what I tend to do. Although thankfully I don't have to fend off werewolves, which she does with an awkward but definitely strong fashion. 

How evil/nasty is the enemy? Teeth. Claws. Two features which highlight how fragile Deanna is, but she does fight back. Although the enemy lives in her town, which isn't a comforting thought with all the power the enemy commands. 

Are there lots of plot twists and surprises? I beamed when I came across the plot twists. It makes me look at the first book in a different light. I enjoyed the rush of adrenaline during the high peril scenes. 

One of my favourite parts was...when Deanna went into full research mode - books always have the answer! 

This fun read full of shape-shifters and were-creature action gets 9/10 as not all the romance parts were my cup of tea. 

You can find out more about Traci and her books on her website.
