Melissa Marr, NTY bestselling author of Wicked Lovely says "the Moon series is filled with action and romance, shape shifters and strong heroines." 

Laila has been pledged to serve the jackal god, Anubis, since she was a child. She wants nothing more than to follow in the footsteps of her father and brother and become a member of the Keepers of Divine Order. When her initiation into the Keepers leads her to Miami and pits her against the wereleopard Sekhmet, Laila is cast into a sea of clan intrigue and bitter rivalries. The stakes grow even higher once the rival pack of werehyenas, led by the beautiful and bloodthirsty Samara, decides to lay claim to the wereleopard’s territory. With the arrival of Kess, the true wereleopard clan leader, and her retinue of werewolves, violence threatens to erupt. Will Laila’s training and skills be enough to save the young werejackal and everything she’s worked for? 

The scales are ready and Anubis awaits...

About the Author: Jeanette Battista

Jeanette Battista graduated with an English degree with a concentration in medieval literature which explains her possibly unhealthy fixation on edged weapons and cathedral architecture. She spent a summer in England and Scotland studying the historical King Arthur, which did nothing to curb her obsession. To satisfy her adrenaline cravings—since sword fighting is not widely accepted in these modern times—she rode a motorcycle at ridiculously high speeds, got some tattoos, and took kickboxing and boxing classes. She gave up the bike when her daughter came along, although she still gets pummeled at the gym on a regular basis.
When she’s not writing or working, Jeanette spends time with family, hikes, reads, makes decadent brownies, buys killer boots, and plays Pocket Frogs. She wishes there were more hours in the day so she could actually do more of these things. She lives with her daughter and their two psychotic kittens in North Carolina.

Jeanette is represented by Pamela van Hylckama Vlieg at the Foreword Agency.

My Review: Once again Jeanette has built upon the fantastic world and further developed her characters.  I adore the witty sarcasm Finn consistently provides.  The introduction of the were jackals and were hyenas is interesting and brings another dynamic to the whole were world.  I stumbled on this series by accident by browsing authors and book titles and have to admit I am very happy I found it.  I enjoyed the story of Leila and hope to see a book about her brother Mebis soon!  I give this book a 5 out of 5.  I will be continuing with the rest of this published series and blogging about them all.
