Something more deadly than werewolves is stalking the gaslit streets of London. Inspector Royston Jones, unacknowledged bastard of a high-born family, is determined to track the killer before more young women fall to his knife. But his investigation puts him in the way of a lord who is a clandestine werewolf and the man’s fiancée , a woman alchemist with attitude and a secret of her own. Will they destroy Royston to protect their covert identities, or will they join with him to hunt the hunter?
By the award-winning author of the Ravensblood series comes the first of the Werewolves and Gaslight mysteries!

Victorian Steampunk Murder Mystery
A London Victorian with Werewolf in it, tale done up extremely well. I have never read or listen to this Author before this book and found the author very articulate in additude of the Inspector and his Principles. The Werewolves you met in this story are not the storybook kind, but people bitten and then ostosized by society for something beyond their fault or wants.

A delightful twist on Victorian mysteries
Shawna Reppert has mastered the art of creating worlds that are both realistic and fantastic. A Hunt by Moonlight is no exception with its Victorian London setting and murder mystery plot that seamlessly integrates werewolves, alchemy and automatons as if they had always been a part of our world.
The main characters are engaging in different ways: Royston is stubbornly (naively) upright and kind, in his own, repressed (Victorian) way. Richard grows on you. Catherine is feisty and smart. And they're all pretty bad at understanding each other's motives, which is hilariously frustrating at times. I look forward to reading the next book in this series to see how the relationships established in this book continue to evolve!
The narration matches the dark, London-fog atmosphere of the story. I would have appreciated a longer pause between scene changes, but overall, it was an enjoyable listen.
