Summary

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.

A Fantastic Paranormal Romance!

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

Intriguing

The story was intense, dangerous and exciting. I love supernatural stories and the heroine is strong and likable. The prequel really has you anticipating book 1. I liked the narrators voice and she really brought life to the characters.

Loving this

As this was a new author to me I wasn't sure what to expect, but was quickly engrossed in this storyline...as a prequel it was a short introduction, but that only left me wanting more, and the narrator was held my attention throughout...

Fantastic

What an awesome story, werewolves and Vampires are natural enemies but after an unexpected event the way to end the bloodshed may be open, can a centuries old feud be brought to an end ?
When Mena leaves her cheating husband she has no idea where she's going but a storm, a chance encounter, a pack of wolves and a totally unexpected revelation changes her life forever.
Totally lost myself in this story, theres an attraction between Mena and Phoenix that neither will be able to hold back for long regardless of the dangers it provokes, I can't wait to get stuck into the next book to see what happens.

Great beginning to a new series

What made the experience of listening to Accepting the Moon: Prequel the most enjoyable?

The book kept twisting from what you think you are going to read. I love books that are not totally predictable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Accepting the Moon: Prequel?

I loved the opening scene when Jackson (vampire) has picked up a girl brings her to a motel to feed, and never bothers to go say anything to her as soon as he meets Mena I wonder what she thought happened to him.

Have you listened to any of Pyper Down’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I do not believe I have but I enjoyed the narration very much.

Any additional comments?

This was a novella introducing us to the characters, definitely will listen to the next book.

I loved this book! 4.5 STARS

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
The book starts with Mena talking about why she left her husband. She meets Jackson and enters a whole new world. She just thought living with her husband was rough…it was nothing! Meeting Phoenix changed her world even more than she thought was possible. This was a very fast paced book since it was less than 2 hours, but boy was there a lot packed in! I liked the storyline and the different twist on these 2 species. The narration was flawless as well! Absolutely 4.5 STARS!

Consistently exceeds expectations

There is something of a sense of anticipation when an author gives the same attention to her choice of narrator as the printed word. This is her third audiobook I've listened to. So far, each choice she has made in narrators has only enhanced my enjoyment of her work. Pyper Down hit every inflection, every emotion perfectly. I found her vocalization of the male characters remarkable in that each one was easily identifiable. To my mind women narrating male parts, as well as men narrating for female parts can be tricky. You either nail it or you don't. Pyper Down definitely nailed it.

As with her written works, Haigwood's audiobooks are definitely worth picking up. The only way she could have put out a better audiobook was to have hired a full cast voice ensemble. Five stars to both author and narrator.

Excited for More!!

A lot happens in this prequel that is clearly setting the stage for the next book. Just on this short little taste of this series I am super excited for what this author has in store for us. If you're not a fan of paranormal romance, you may not like it; but its enticing and you dont know what you're missing.

Great narration already! Makes this little snippet even more intense and exciting. I can already tell she is going to bring out the alpha female in Mena's character, perfectly.

Accepting the Moon

A great introduction to the series!

This fast paced prequel sets the stage for what looks to be a great paranormal series. I loved how the characters were introduced and how things have been setup for the next book.

Yes, I was left wanting more! K. S. Haigwood’s writing pulled me right in from the beginning, and Pyper Down gave an excellent performance.

Great Prequel

Loved this prequel listening to this was and experience because it's not the typical genre I read or listen to but I have to say I'm intrigued with how the story continues and how these two communities survive.

Great Prequel Story!

Loved this beginning tale in the Moonrising series. I became caught up in this excellent story and can’t wait to listen to the next book in this awesome series. Fantasy and paranormal romance lovers will definitely want to listen as you’ll become enamored with all the various characters in the story. The plot line is riveting and the suspense of what will happen next will totally captivate you. I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy.
