There is a new Alpha Wolf in town, and she is about to change everything.
Mena had all she wanted in life: a nice house, money, a successful husband who treated her like a queen.
That was, until she found out her marriage was all a lie, and things she never thought could exist, did.
Vampires are real.
Werewolves are real.
And Mena is not human anymore.

Reading is a passion and an obsession.
This is a fantastic start to a new series! I loved it!
I downloaded this book as an audio book, so that I could listen to it while doing household chores. This audio book was narrated by Pyper Down. I loved her narration; her vocal interpretations of the characters made them come alive. She did a fantastic job! Her voice was melodic and smooth, and I found myself drawn into the story more easily. I would definitely listen to more books narrated by her.
Mena is a wonderful character. I really liked her. She is quite courageous and determined. But one moment of danger will change her life forever. Can she overcome the obstacles thrown in her path by fate?
This is a very interesting prequel novella to a new series. In this book, we are introduced to Mena, Jackson and Phoenix. Each character has a chance to give their own point of view. I really enjoyed their interactions. Jackson seems to be quite impulsive and hotheaded at times. Phoenix, on the other hand, is extremely intense and powerful; I suppose it helps that he's the leader of the vampire clan.
The story is a really fast paced read! I was quickly swept into the tale. It is full of twists and turns, with lots of action and danger. I was a little disappointed that it was so short, though, lasting only 1 hour and 39 minutes. I wanted it to keep going! I am now looking forward to reading/listening to the main story arc in the first full novel of the series.
K.S. Haigwood has written another wonderful paranormal romance series. I love her fast paced writing style, and the flow of the story was wonderful. I am fast becoming a fan of hers.
Due to a few scenes of violence, I do not recommend this book to younger readers. However, I recommend this story if you love older YA or erotic paranormal romance genres. - Lynn Worton
The story is good
It is a short prequel to another paranormal series...Warewolf against vampires.Looking forward to another great series.
"Forbidden love between Vampires and Wolves. What more could you want?"
A lot happens in this short one hour prequel. I loved the set up for the series you get in this prequel and can't wait to listen to more. I gave it an overall of 4 stars because I love the story line and think it is well written and I think Piper did a great job narrating it. The reason I knocked one star off is because of how fast the book has to move do the length of it. I would have really like to see the book longer
"Can't wait for the next book"
I couldn't stop listening to this book and was sad that it was over. Can't wait to start the next one and see what happens.
"Accepting The Moon"
This is a short, but awesome story. It's intense, full of action and attraction. I can't wait for more from this series.
"You know what they say about karma."
Lashell Collins werewolf series
This is my first narration of hers. The first thing I do before acquiring an audio book is to check out the narrator, I was captivated by the story, characters, and narration.
This is a short prequel. I did find it excellent and all in for Mena.
My first story by the author and the audio was a gift. To say I enjoyed it doesn't begin to describe my reaction. About halfway through I looked up the author and had purchased the next book and audio. Mena starts out finding her husband's betrayal as an end to her 12 year marriage. She strikes back and we find her captivating Jaxom who isn't human but we don't know who or what he is. The author not only gives us strong characters but keeps even the small mysteries for a time before the reveal.Mena is charismatic to pull in three PNR men. She is no sniveling weakling, facing
wolves and...well you need to listen You will be glad you did. Strong recommend.
"Great start and intro to a series!!!"
My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!
***I own the ebook and the audiobook
The cover is beautiful with the moon dominating the background.
I have owned this book quite a while. I picked up the audiobook recently, and I listened while I mowed.
This was a great start to a series and started with a bang. It is novella length, so it was short. With the violence, I say this is an adult book. It gave you a recent history on Mena and how she becomes not human. There is plenty of action in this short story. The narrator is great too!
Mena is trying to move on, but there are lots of problems. Jackson is a bit of a mystery, and you really aren’t sure what to make of him or Phoenix in this story.
I recommend this story to any paranormal fans, but be warned, you will want to jump straight into next book which is definitely longer….I know I did!
"Great story and audible!"
Vampires and Werewolves – Does it get any better?
This book is a must read for any paranormal romance book lover who likes werewolf and vampires together in their reads. It has so many twists and turns and will keep you on the edge of your seat reading!! The story was written very well that you can get a good feel on the characters. It is a fast paced short read with a lot of intriguing surprises that sucks you right in.
Mena’s life was changed after confronting her cheating husband however she is a strong brave woman that handles everything thrown at her with a lot of backbone and makes the best of it. Phoenix is the sexy vampire that tries to protect Mena and keep her safe while fighting his feelings that he has for her. And to make things even more interesting, throw in the detective that was Marc’s (Mena’s husband) friend who is investigating his death and falling for Mena.
I don’t normally read a lot of paranormal books however this book captured my attention from the beginning to the end and kept me wanting more. Once I started reading it, I didn’t want to put the book down, in fact I went straight into reading the next book. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series from this author.
Pyper Down did a great job on the reading. It was enjoyable to listen to.
"vampire or werewolf"
Yes the author did a great job combining werewolves and vampires and causing the rift between the two that will keep the whole story going.
I was so proud that our heroine stepped up and took care of business quickly and is a strong female lead not a weak abused woman.
No I have not
Again it would be the strong female lead so many books the author makes the female a whiny useless character.
I listened to this book on audible, it's a fast paced storyline about a woman who decides to leave her husband after an affair. the story line then takes quite a twist and we learn about to paranormal beings. I love that the author made the twist happen quickly and the choices that were made. I cannot wait to read more about these characters. Who doesn't love vampires and werewolves?
"SHORT BUT YUMMY!!"
This book is short, but boy does she pack some YUMMINESS into the time!! She REALLY leaves you on the edge of your set at the end!! I was like wait, did I skip some?? LOL!! I can't wait for the next book to see what happens between this pair!! Pyper did a Awesome job narrating!! I hope she continues to narrate this series!!
"Mena may win me over yet."
Mena recently found out her husband, Mark, has been lying to her and she’s ready to divorce him after 12 years of marriage. They argue and it gets ugly. Unfortunately, that isn’t going to be the end of her troubles for the day. Nope. Mena is in for a nasty surprise concerning werewolves and vampires.
There were things I really liked about this book and then there were things that just didn’t work for me. Mena is angry at Mark, and has every right to be so. She isn’t sticking around for more of his BS. I really like this attitude of hers. She’s not one to bow to another’s will easily and this stubbornness (or bullheadedness) works to her advantage through out the story.
Then we switch point of views and go to Jaxon who is at a questionable bar looking for something. He’s a vampire and it never becomes clear if he was hunting for sex or a meal or both. He bumps into Mena at the even more questionable hotel where he was staying and he is instantly drawn to her. Then the werewolves show up.
Now, here is one of those things that didn’t work for me. The fight scene was ridiculous. Jaxon had been carrying Mena and then he swung her up onto his back once the face off with the werewolves began. Yep. She fights and he fights and all the time she is on his back piggy back style. I know he’s a vampire, but she’s just a human. Have you ever tried to hold on to anyone piggy back style while they were moving fast, bending over, running, kicking, fighting? Plus Mena was doing some fighting herself. Yeah, it just doesn’t work. And it also looked pretty silly in my little mental theater I have going on as I listen to this book.
OK, but then we have more good stuff. There are several intense scenes as Mena deals with the vampires, especially the local leader Phoenix. She’s a strong-willed person and this is like catnip to the vampires. These scenes individually were very well written and I really enjoyed them.
Yet there is this one thing that bugged me. Mena has left her husband and had a few monumental shocks for the evening (Werewolves! Vampires!). Yet there is nearly no reflection on these events or the ending of her relationship with her husband of 12 years before she is falling in lust with another character. So that moved way too swiftly for me without even the casual nod to the events of the day.
But then we have more awesomeness with the ending. Mena has to deal with the werewolves and this is going to be tricky. Without giving out any spoilers, I found the ending satisfying and an excellent setup for the next book in the series.
I received this book at no cost from the author (via the Audiobook Blast Facebooks group) in exchange for an honest review.
The Narration: Pyper Down was a good fit for Mena. She had the hard feminine voice that worked so well for Mena (who was having the toughest day of her life). Her male voices for Mark and Phoenix were very good, and each distinct. She also had a distinct voice for Jaxon but it was not sexy at all, even though according to the text it was suppose to be. Instead, Jaxon sounded like a 50 year smoker that might have asthma.
