Title: Lunar Rampage
Author: Samantha Cross
Publisher: Summer Solstice
Release Date: May 12th, 2015
Photographer, animal lover, and unfortunately for the summer, the new girl in town, Cora Nash considers herself a simple girl. Renovating and living at her grandmother’s house seemed like a good idea, until events took a turn for the bizarre. Garbage cans viciously torn into, howls from the woods, wild animals behaving erratically, and an ominous warning from the good-looking bad boy, “Stay out of the forest.”
This seemingly normal town hides a mysterious and violent secret. When one of the townsfolk up and disappears in the forest, leaving nothing but a pair of shoes, Cora is the only person willing to investigate. The answer, however, is nothing she could have ever anticipated, when under a full moon she finds herself face to face with a… werewolf.
If werewolves exist, where did it come from? And more importantly… who could it be?
MY TAKE ON THIS BOOK
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Lovee the whole dark and mysterious cover of this book!!!<3<3
The book starts with Cora Nash, 26-year-old women, who moves in with her grandmother for the summer to help her fix up the place. She starts to notice strange things happening and decides to snoop around. She wanders around the forest and comes across Max(hunter) and Joe, who is handing from a tree as a sign of protest. She starts helping him by giving him some food and suddenly one day, he goes missing. She starts digging for answers and finds herself in a werewolf attack.
As for the characters, Cora is soo sweet for taking care of her grandmother. She doesn’t judge a person by their character and gives them a chance. There were times where I found Cora to be a bit annoying. Loved Cora’s grandmother, Wendy and Cora’s friend,Priscilla. They were the two characters who were hilarious and lightened the mood. There is a love triangle going on with Cora, Max, and Owen. I really didn’t like Max at the beginning but later half of the book I liked him. Owen is the sweet guy and I knew what was going to happen to him in the early stages of the book cause it was pretty obvious.
The starting of the book was slow but the story picks up as you go. Minus for me was that I was not able to connect to the characters and there were some things like after Joe’s disappearance, we never got to see his mother or her reaction [ Joe chapter just ended]. There were some parts in the book which I found hard to believe.
The second half of the book was really good and loved the way how Samantha ended this book. Looking froward to reading the sequel.
If you like paranormal books with a hint of romance then you should definitely give this book a try.
