Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{July 25, 2012}   {Review} Gray Moon Rising by S.M. Reine (Season’s of the Moon #4)

From Goodreads: It’s been almost a year since Rylie Gresham was bitten by a werewolf on Gray Mountain. Now something is beckoning her back to the place she was attacked, along with every other werewolf in the world. But they aren’t the only ones heeding the call. A group of hunters notices them gathering and sees it as their chance to wipe out the entire species.

Seth is about to graduate high school when he learns of the final hunt. He secretly plans to save Rylie and his werewolf brother even though he has to play along with the hunters to do it. But Rylie doesn’t want to be saved. She’s already decided to solve her problems with a silver bullet if answers aren’t waiting on Gray Mountain.

One way or another, everything is about to end—whether it means Rylie’s liberation or the end of her life…


Reading this novel was bittersweet as it’s the last in the wonderful Season’s of the Moon series.  Over the last year, I have really gotten to know and love Rylie, and her story captivated me from the very beginning.  I love stories about werewolves, and this in-depth look at the battle between Rylie’s humanity and her new, carnivorous nature, as well as the love story between a werewolf and a hunter, made for an epic series that I really enjoyed.  And, this last segment was exceptionally well done!

Once again, Rylie is faced with an impossible choice, and I loved watching her work her way through her own issues while attempting to right all the wrongs and find out just what exactly Gray Mountain is trying to tell her.  This cross-country story was a rollercoaster ride, with its ups and downs.  My heart both rejoiced with the triumphs, and ripped apart alongside Rylie’s as the hunters began their killing spree on the way to Gray Mountain. 

Rylie has matured so much since the fatal day she was bitten, and her companions, Seth and Abel, have matured right alongside her.  In my opinion, this is one of the best series out there concerning werewolves, and Reine has done a splendid job creating a lifelike yet surreal world in which the reader can easily become a part.  I highly suggest reading this series.  Four stars.

I received a copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.
