Beneath a Blue Moon (Crescent City Wolf Pack, #2)Beneath a Blue Moon by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about possibilities. Chase Beauchamp lives a stable life as second in command of the Crescent City wolf pack until a witch is found brutally murdered. While cake tasting for his alphas wedding, he comes across another witch who is hiding secrets. Chase has always been wary towards witches, and it tries his patience. Will he able to put his mistrust aside, can he find out the truth before more supernatural creatures get hurt?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Rain wishing for a better tomorrow even if it seems impossible or Chase trying to protect his pack but still hold authority. Great supporting cast with kind and caring Snow or sweet Emma as a curious little girl. A terrific villain that will send shivers up your spine.
A great example of building upon the fantasy world in a sequel with introduction of witches with their own laws and rules coexisting with the werewolves. the sense of facing the consequences of these laws was perfectly written to create tensions for Rain. The use of magic was spellbinding each time as something sacred but beautiful. And also the curse and the potion was perfectly written with specific rules to create difficulties for the character.
I also enjoyed the witches mythological roots in nature and magic and kindness which is rare in literature. I loved the visual detail throughout the novel in the nature of the park and the storm and rain song as something soothing and intoxicating. Or the bakery with its colour and sense of smell and taste in all the cakes as if you were actually there. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
