Now, she searches for a way to undo that bond and free herself from the wolf pack structure entirely. Following a lead to sever the ties to her beta wolves, she arrives at Hunter’s Moon Farm, a commune of werewolves whose atypical approa Dana Gray is no longer mated to Cole Randall, but as his former female alpha, she is still tied to the werewolves he forced into his pack.

    Bad Moon Rising picks up with Cole in the breeze and Dana and Avery heading up the newly formed Pack Liaison Branch of the Sullivan Foundation as they now know that there are genetic werewolves out there living the life, never having gone through the Foundation’s training. Turns out these werewolves don’t kill willy-nilly either. The pack alpha controls the pack members ability to shift and apparently when the moon is full and the shift happens, the alpha shifts them right back to human. BORING. Bad Moon Rising picks up with Cole in the breeze and Dana and Avery heading up the newly formed Pack Liaison Branch of the Sullivan Foundation as they now know that there are genetic werewolves out there living the life, never having gone through the Foundation’s training. Turns out these werewolves don’t kill willy-nilly either. The pack alpha controls the pack members ability to shift and apparently when the moon is full and the shift happens, the alpha shifts them right back to human. BORING. But in light of this world building information I guess I have to concede Cole really is a bit twisted. He’s still calling Dana on the regular from burner phones despite that they’re no longer mated and trying to court her “Cole style”; and Dana’s still clutching her pearls and pretending to be disgusted. Dana however is still the alpha of Cole’s former pack and her desire to find a way to break those bonds leads her to Hunter’s Moon Farm, home to a werewolf commune of sorts where they have “an alternate approach to packs”. Turns out Hunter’s Moon Farm was where Cole grew up and the enigmatic cult leader (errrmm alpha), the charismatic James David (call me Brother Jimmy) Hadley is none other than Cole’s papa. Then things get (shockingly) complicated. Dana finds herself being held hostage (again) and Cole is singing “Here I come to save the day” (again) – to get his sweet Polly Purebred away from dear old dad. Sadly, this situation isn’t as simple as off’ing Hollis; and for a “twisted serial killer” Cole proves to be embarrassingly inept. BMR provides a lot of background information on Cole and fleshes out his character which felt underdeveloped in The Killing Moon. He has his issues, which include likely way worse PTSD than what Dana may be dealing with. There is definitely something wrong with him and BMR explains how he ended up being a killer. None of the characters in this series are very likable. They’re all selfish, or at a minimum self-absorbed. In a lot of ways, Cole is the best of the bunch – which isn’t really saying much. He’s clearly the most damaged, but he does seem to make an effort to truly change – even if its in his own twisted Cole way. Dana frustrates me because nothing impresses me less than someone who won’t own their own shit. She’s attracted to Cole like a moth to a flame, but what really fuels her half-hearted efforts to fight the attraction is her concerns about what other people will think of her. That’s it. And to this end she’s willing to use her friend and partner Avery because he’s clearly a much more acceptable romantic partner. Never mind that she hasn’t even scratched the surface of working out her shit with Cole, but she has no problem dragging Avery into her emotional cesspit. Avery for his part is just stupid. On the one hand he worries (and rightly so) about being able to discern the difference between what he actually feels for Dana vs. to what extent all the werewolf pack dynamics mumbo-jumbo may be influencing his feelings. On the other hand, who with half a brain thinks it’s a good idea to get involved with someone with such intense, unresolved, emotional baggage? Not gonna end well for Avery (and I’m not just saying that because book 3 is still the Dana and COLE show.) 4 stars for an entertaining, interesting fun, quickly moving story. I felt more of the connection and chemistry between Dana and Cole in this installment, but I also felt the “uncontrollable” aspect of their attraction was over-done at times and actually diminished their chemistry.

    Where book one was frustrating and fun, this was just frustrating. (view spoiler)[It bothered me a lot that we went from an alpha kick ass heroine to a beta submissive one. She was just... weak. Throughout the entire book. And apparently being alpha is something that can suddenly disappear. That might have been the worst of all (no one likes a beta heroine!) If Dana's not off getting raped by someone she'd be contemplating how WRONG it was to be feeling stuff for Cole. We had plenty of that in b Where book one was frustrating and fun, this was just frustrating. (view spoiler)[It bothered me a lot that we went from an alpha kick ass heroine to a beta submissive one.

If Dana's not off getting raped by someone she'd be contemplating how WRONG it was to be feeling stuff for Cole. We had plenty of that in book one, in my opinion it was time to move on, but this just kept repeating over and over and over. As I said, frustrating. (hide spoiler)] If that wasn't enough I can say certain aspects of Jimmy's lifestyle were down right disturbing, and I'm sure it was meant that way, but still the ease with which certain things were described bothered me. Towards the end as I saw how much of the book I had left I was becoming concerned with how things were going to end up, and that too, was frustrating.(view spoiler)[ I'd just about had it with Dana, could she make a decision already? A sound one? And not just keep leading two guys on (Oh but she couldn't help it!.... right). (hide spoiler)] The ending was just infuriating. (view spoiler)[This series is called Cole and Dana not Avery and Dana right? You don't say! Well I don't see why Cole would stick around after all this, Dana clearly doesn't deserve him. I'm doubtful about the next book, I'm afraid it's just going to be more hurt on Cole's part. I might pick it up when Dana decides to grow a spine and the story could perhaps figure out some other problem to focus on rather than this exhausting love triangle. (hide spoiler)] Edit: I do have to add that this was well-written, and though it frustrated me at times it still wasn't enough to make me put it down. In fact I was pretty caught up in it. I just wanted to KNOW god dammit. So yeah an intense read.

    I am so captivated by this series. Dana finally gets free of Cole (even though you secretly want her to be with him) and decides to try to find a way to get rid of her Beta wolves that will shift at her command. She ends up at Hunter's Moon Farm, where the women only wear long skirts and they have the whole "Big Love" thing going on. Except Dana's not up for some "Big Love". Things get interesting when Cole shows up to try to save the day. I could not put this book down. I was fascinated by all t I am so captivated by this series.

I was fascinated by all the plot twists, Cole flashbacks, and Cole & Dana moments that everyone loves. I loved this book more than the first because of all the shocking truths revealed. And it ends with a big shocker and now I can't wait for the 3rd book. I seriously need it now. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves NA werewolf romance with some mystery and action thrown in. It's a winner and a must-read. **I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

    The first book was terrible but in a vaguely fun way, and the relationship between Dana and Cole was at least compelling because it was f*cked up and intentionally so. This book was just painful. Between the sheer incompetence of the characters involved, the blatant character derailment (Avery, why??), and Dana getting sexually assaulted right and left, it lost whatever factor kept it worthwhile from the first one.

    Intense and entertaining as always, Bad Moon Rising gives new insight into an enigmatic killer. I especially loved the whole concept of being raised by a cult leader and experiencing that particular brand of philosophy, which Chambers pulls off extremely well. I also liked delving more into the love triangle that is Cole, Dana, and Avery. It strikes me as very Eric the Phantom, Christine, and Raul (sp?). It begs the question of who wants the nice guy when there is a gorgeous, highly intelligent, Intense and entertaining as always, Bad Moon Rising gives new insight into an enigmatic killer.

    Once again, I could not put down this Chambers book until I swiped to the last screen. Normally, I am not a fan of werewolf books, however, I have become fascinated with this series. Chambers makes sick and twisted situations a must read. I can't help wanting Cole to get the girl. As twisted as Cole is, I can't help loving his character. He is sexy, sweet-ish and protective while being totally twisted and demented. I know Avery is the logical choice but still keep rooting for Cole.

I can not wait for book 3, even if I was cursing Chambers last night for making me wait to read the conclusion of this story.

    Okay, within reason, the biggest complaint against this book is that there is an unforgiving amount of back and forth, "I love you, I don't love you; we're wolf-mated, we're not wolf mated," amongst the love triangle. But I soooo forgave Chambers for that. What a story! It's of course best to read the Dana and Cole series in order, but it will definitely take you on an emotional roller-coaster. This book has a lot of flashbacks of Cole's childhood, and tells the fuller truth of what happened at Okay, within reason, the biggest complaint against this book is that there is an unforgiving amount of back and forth, "I love you, I don't love you; we're wolf-mated, we're not wolf mated," amongst the love triangle.

    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! That being said I love V.J. Chambers & her work never disappoints! I was immediately sucked back into the work of Dana and Cole. There were many twists and turns in this one and was very exciting. I love this series and cannot wait for the next book! I highly recommend this book and any other by this author! You will not be disappointed.

    Great trilogy with a less than stellar ending, if you've made it this far, do yourself a favor and go for the whole thing, even knowing the ending may disappoint you - it may not - everyone is different. This is a well told and better than average edited story. You will care for Dana and feel her pain and confusion. Even more so, though, my heart bled for Cole. Well done!

    Still enjoying I do like this story. Something unusual and different. I like the great character writing. I really feel like I know these characters. You hear the good and bad. The thoughts, feelings, and desires of all characters-men and women. I like that it's both, not just the woman's pov. Can't wait to read what happens next! Still enjoying I do like this story.

    Oh man! Even though Cole was the bad guy I was hoping they would end up together, just not the WAY they ended up together. Great series. I've read the three books many times. Now I'm starting on the trilogy about Dana and Cole's daughter. Oh man! Even though Cole was the bad guy I was hoping they would end up together, just not the WAY they ended up together.

    Not as good as 1 I did not like how the directions that the they took Dana. I feel like they took away the power from the character it made it less interesting.
