Darkest Moon (Shadow Guild: Wolf Queen Book 1) Kindle Edition
I’m supposed to be the Alpha's mate. Screw that.
Since I was born, I was destined to be one thing—the Alpha’s Mate. It should be every girl’s dream. Not mine, though. He’s too dark and damaged, and I’ve got a secret he can never know: I’m not a true wolf.
Instead of waiting for him to figure out I’m an abomination, I left on my fifteenth birthday. But I didn’t go far. No way in hell would I let fate drive me from the town I love.
Ten years later, I’m still hiding in plain sight. When I occasionally see him on the street—deadly, sexy, powerful--I just walk by. Keep my head down.
Until that night. Wrong place, wrong time, and suddenly I’m accused of murdering someone from my old pack. And he’s there. Blaming me. I’ve got one chance to prove my innocence and find the real killer, or I'm dead by shifter law.
Fortunately, the Alpha doesn't recognize me because I'm no longer the same ugly duckling. He senses I'm special though, and he won’t stop until he figures out the truth. But when he does, I’ll be in danger from more than just the murderer.

While Eve is a character from a previous series, a reader could pick up Darkest Moon and follow along without feeling like part of the story is missing. New readers aren’t bombarded with awkward and/or tedious information dumps. At the same time, the book isn’t bogged down in recaps.
This was a quick and enjoyable read filled with magic, mystery, and a side of slow burn chemistry. The characters are likable. Their strife is relatable. The pace is quick but steady. The world building is on point, giving readers great visuals of the various settings without turning into filler. Having read nearly all of Linsey Hall’s works, this one is my favorite.
This particular book just flies right on into the story and I love that! We have had the world building throughout this series so no need for the usual intros. ( But if you are starting here you won't be that lost I don't think)
Eve has run from a painful past and is now put in a situation where her survival and secrets are harder to keep than ever. She's strong and won't be pushed around and Lachlan is a pusher!
I really like the dual pov, it's awesome knowing both sides and thier motivations! Although because of that I have no idea as to how this will play out. Some secrets are pretty massive and hard to see how they can be resolved, and things may become a whooooole lot bigger than we all thought. Giant plus is I only have to wait a month for book two!!
So we start the book with Eve talking abt her life. How she is the future alpha’s mate & that it’s destine for her to die & for him to go crazy.
Eve didn’t want that for herself so she decided to run away! She found shelter in the “Faye” community which is in the same state. Literally walking distance from each other. She learned a lot of spells during that time & she become powerful in that world. So she created a potion that would change her appearance so she can look like a Faye. She placed the potion on a pendant in her necklace. One member of her previous pack found out the truth (they never went into detail to tell us how it happened. So this guy was blackmailing by extorting money from her for his silence. Then while meeting with him he collapsed on top of Eve which that alone created attention to her. After that everyone assume that she put something in his drink & killed him. So the alpha (who he didn’t recognize as his mate still felt some weird connection with her) made a deal with her, if she can prove & find the murdered she free.
A few things I didn’t like:
1-way tooooooo many characters that made no sense introducing.
2-He gave her a lot of opportunities to come clean which she never took.
3- During this whole book they only kiss ONCE… & that’s all they did.
This story is very long & lack the romance from a normal adult story.
I’m not sure if I’ll be reading the 2nd book.

5 stars - less than a day to read because I cannot put it down. I only give 5 stars if it has managed to engage extra emotions from me - extreme lol moments or real teary moments etc. A 5 stars book tends to have me raging about cliff hangers and (legally and not creepily) stalking the author for release dates.
4 stars - 2 days to read or less. A book that I have quite enjoyed reading, feisty MC and some racy scenes with thier romantic interest. I would definitely follow a series and author for 4 star books.
3 stars - takes around 2/3 days to read, usually because I have become distracted and less engaged in some sections but by the end the end I have enjoyed the overall story and would read any sequels.
1/2 stars not given, as I have usually returned it without finishing as I'm not engaged. .
