Review: Moon Thrall (LaRue #2) by Donna Grant

HER QUEST FOR THE TRUTH

Skye Parrish is living her dream. As a reporter, seeing her name in print is always a thrill, and being able to tell the world about the dangers of the supernatural is an added bonus. Unfortunately, her investigation into the mystical factions of New Orleans has landed her squarely in the sights of some of the city’s most dangerous creatures. In order to survive, she must place her trust in one of the groups she was looking to expose. But her unlikely alliance could lead to something far more perilous - the loss of her heart to the hunky and captivating Court LaRue.

HIS REASON FOR BEING

As the youngest member of a family of werewolves tasked with keeping the peace in New Orleans, Court doesn't carry the weight of the past like his brothers. When the vampire faction begins breaking the rules the LaRues are sworn to uphold, Court takes the lead on the investigation and finds himself faced with a threat even bigger than the vamps – a feisty and fearless woman who holds him utterly in thrall and makes him look to the future. But there will be no forever for them if they can’t survive the present.

I can’t help it. I’m addicted to the LaRue’s and Chiassons and their constant struggles with the paranormal factions in New Orleans. Quick to read, loaded with action and attraction and plenty of insets and descriptions that bring New Orleans to life, this is a great starter series to enjoy what Donna Grant has to offer.

In this story we meet Skye, a reporter who is disclosing specific details about the factions in her new series in the local newspaper.  A bit of a fool, she’s convinced herself she has a clue (she doesn’t) and has a ‘vampire’ as her undercover source. But she’s naïve, and ridiculously unaware of her own limitations: the vamp isn’t a vamp, she doesn’t realize the dangers she is playing with and, of course, the LaRue Boys, with help from Riley and the Moonstone pack feel obligated to help her (and keep the specific details that she is learning and sharing out of the papers).

This is essentially Court’s story (I’m dying for Solomon to get his – and we still haven’t really dealt with Kane’s issues either) and he’s the player of the bunch. Hiding out from the many women who are chasing him down, Court is living a life of multiple women, no commitments and maintaining order in New Orleans.  Until Skye. He can’t get her out of his head: the electric sparks that pass between them.

Plenty of action and an occasionally frustrating heroine who can’t quite grasp the true depth of the danger she has awakened.  She’s incredibly lucky that the LaRue’s accept and protect her so completely, and the connection with Court is lovely.

It’s not all fur, fangs and fight though: Addison and Myles move their relationship forward with a marriage, and Minka is again adding her insight and talents to the mix, much to Solomon’s discomfiture.

A fun series that reveals the LaRue’s and their struggles with personal demons, the supernatural factions in the city and their own worries about Delphine and her return. Action packed with plenty of heart and heat, these novella length stories are perfect bites that engage and entertain.
