Moon Tortured: McKenzie Hunter

Moon Tortured: McKenzie Hunter

Skylar's death unlike most came at her birth. In a final ditch effort to save her unborn dying child Skylar's mother, a witch, scarifies herself  to get a super shade to inhabit Skylar's body. For twenty-three years, Skylar lived a life of oblivion, content with her simple job, loving adoptive mother and the monthly inconvenience of a full moon hangover after being sedated and caged when she changed into a wolf. After waking up one night in a strange room in Illinois, lacking memory and banged up she's rescued by the mid-west pack. Sounds good and all, but Skylar isn't sure she can really trust them.

I was gifted this book by McKenzie Hunter in exchange for an honest review. 

There are a lot of thing about this book that I liked. Skylar's 23, not an odd age like 15, and that she's a fem werewolf. The start of this book really gets things going. Skylar is attacked by vampires and her adoptive mother is killed. This face paced-ness keeps up through out the book. Skylar is sassy, sarcastic, and nosy all the things I love a leading lady to have. She did start out a tiny on the blah side but did grow to be more loveable. This urban fantasy read has a lot of world building as well. Something I felt a lot of books I've read lately haven't had. The only thing lacking in MT was the romance... Yeah I know, I know not all books need to have a romance to strong. But I felt like when one is sort of introduced that the author so go through with it and I think McKenzie with the writing style she has would write and amazing romance between Skylar and Ethan. I'm hoping as well with the next book that Skylar does branch out a little more and stops being such a lone wolf (pun intended).

Throughout this book I was left wondering who to trust and who not too, which keep this story from being overly predictable. The ending was unexpected and that really what you want out of a story.
