Review: Run With the Moon (Valen’s Pack #1) by Bailey Bradford

Two species that have always kept themselves separated are about to collide and create a new world.

Humanity almost managed to do itself in. Ravaged by wars and plagues, the human population on earth has been bordering on extinction, although pockets of people have been forging on over the past few hundred years. It’s a hard life, and one Aaron Olsen fears he doesn’t fit into. As a son of a village leader, there are pressures on him he can’t manage, and things he keeps hidden, desires he doesn’t know how to express that keep him up many nights as he worries over them.

Valen is an alpha, born with the crescent moon mark on his chest. It means he’ll have to leave the pack he was born and raised in. It is the way of the wolf, and the only way to prevent it is to fight his father. Valen has no intention of doing such a dishonorable thing. He leaves as he’s supposed to, only to find himself the victim of thievery. When he hunts down the party responsible for stealing his belongings, Valen finds himself attracted to the human Aaron Olsen.

Now, if they can only survive their own pride and insecurities, and an attack that threatens everything they love, they just might have a chance at happiness in Valen’s Pack.

Searching to form his own pack, Valen finds himself attracted to a human and together they will have to survive their own pride and insecurities and an attack that threatens everything they love in this fascinating paranormal, m/m post-apocalyptic romance.

As a son of the village leader, there are pressures on Aaron Olsen that he can’t manage and he fears that he just doesn’t fit into his life and the reader can’t help but get drawn into the story as Aaron’s and Valen’s life collide and their white hot attraction to each other helps bridge fears and insecurities. The characters are strong, compelling and invite the reader to join them on their journey of self discovery and bridging the gap between humans and shifters in a world that has been ravaged and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers hovering on the edge of anticipation with lots of suspense, excitement and romance.

The world is full of dangers like hunger and sickness, but none so dangerous as pillaging murderers who take what they want with no thought to honor or life. There is never a dull moment as Valen begins his journey into what to him is the unknown, he finds his mate only to be confronted with how easy life can turn on you as his old pack is attacked and Aaron’s village becomes the next target. The futuristic post-apocalyptic setting adds lots of spice and depth to the setting as Valen and Aaron’s mating leave behind old prejudices and beliefs and set new traditions on course for cohabitation to survive.

Once again, Bailey Bradford brings her world to life with well written scenes and details that ensure that the reader feels as if they are part of the story and I was so caught up in this one, there was no way I could put it down until I had read every last word and of course wishing I didn’t have to wait for the next one.
