“I am a prisoner.
Taken by monsters who crave my death.
If I want to see my mates again, I have to stay alive.
I was just settling into my new life with my mates when I was taken. Robbed of my magic, ripped from the men I’m beginning to love, and imprisoned by their mortal enemies.
They want to use me. For my power. For my blood and my bones. For my connection to the Alpha Kings they hate.
But more than anything, they want to see me die.
These Alphas are nothing like mine. They thrive on pain and feast on suffering. One wrong move, and they’ll decide that I’m not worth the trade they desire.
My mates will come for me, and I’ll fight like hell to get back to them. But it all might be too late. After all, to these enemies, the best thing a witch can do is burn.”

Book one in this series, Moon Enchanted, was absolutely fantastic. I’ve never read a reverse harem that was more about the story than it was about the sex, which is my preferred ratio. You can read my review on the first book here.
Moon Entrapped, book two, was even better! Cora is kidnapped by a werewolf pack who has been at war with her mates for centuries. The pack has cultivated a culture in which the female shifters are subservient to the males, and they utilise dark magic to their own ends. Dark magic that involves lots of Cora’s blood and the bones of others.
This terrible werewolf pack want the title of Kings of the Otherworld, a title which currently belongs to Cora’s mates, and they intend to negotiate Cora’s return to them for the privilege. Cora learns more about the history between the two packs and how the lines of witches she is descended from has wielded their power during this time. This allows Cora to tap into her own extensive powers and learn how to use them in a high-pressure situation.
Certain that the pack will kill her given the first opportunity, Cora has to work with the women of the pack and her own mates to ensure that she can escape and return to the men she loves.
This was a pretty dark book, and the entire way through, I wondered what Cora’s chances of survival were. The methods of dark magic were jaw-droppingly macabre, and the climax between the two packs had me on the edge of my seat.
In this book, Cora begins to understand her responsibilities as a witch and to the Otherworld, and really grows into her new situation. She becomes the strong female lead that the series needs, rather than the uncertain, not-quite-timid-but-almost protagonist she was in book one.
The next book in the series is coming out soon and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
