Hunger Moon by Melissa Snark
Valkyrie Victoria Storm desires nothing more than to provide her wolf pack with a safe haven, but her position as priestess to the Goddess Freya also brings with it certain… obligations. Not to mention complications.
War with the Barrett family resulted in the deaths of her parents and most of her pack. Now, hunters are hot on the trail of the remaining pack members. Sawyer Barrett, a human hunter hell bent on revenge, is convinced that Victoria murdered his brother. He will stop at nothing to see her dead.
Victoria must defend the survivors and somehow lead them to safety. Months on the run has weakened the pack, and there are newborn pups to protect, making swift travel impossible. Ahead, the promise of refuge beckons.
Their best chance for survival lies in Sierra Pines, California: Arik Koenig, a powerful, dominant male wolf. He promises to protect and provide for the pack, something Victoria knows the pack needs for survival. His mysterious past is riddled with violence and death, including the slaughter of his entire family twenty years before. His wife died under mysterious circumstances and his son, Logan, is rumored to be her killer.
What is truth? Who can she trust? The desperate spirit of Arik’s murdered wife calls out for help, and Logan begs for assistance in clearing his name. Victoria must solve a murder that has pitted father against son, rooted in a mystery reaching back two decades. Her quest starts her on a journey from the human world to Odin’s Valhalla and back again.
Victoria will find salvation or face destruction beneath the Hunger Moon…

A series you won’t want to miss!
101k and I wanted to keep reading! Victoria comes from a long, royal line of werewolves, but that means nothing in her new desperate situation. She is now the Alpha, struggling to protect the few pack members she has left. Hunters are attacking her at every turn, pack members are dying, and being on the run makes it hard to provide even food for her pack and the new litter on the way.
A message from her goddess just might be the answer. She is sent to find a strong male Alpha in a small town in California. This is the point where me, the chronic romantic starts screaming and hollering, “Hell yeah!” The man she finds is all the goddess described and more. He can offer food, security, safety… There are just two problems. 1. He has a son who she doesn’t see eye to eye with, and 2. Her new Alpha has a secret and a past that just may be her and her packs undoing unless she can figure out the truth. Was she sent there for help or was she sent there to help him?
This exciting journey had me laughing, crying, cheering, and holding my breath. Everything a great story should. Victoria is the indomitable hero, a short, beautiful Alpha female put in the worst of situations, trying to hold her pack together while everything is falling apart. She is a fighter, a warrior, and she never gives up, and I cannot wait to read more in this series. What an amazing adventure. I highly recommend this series!
