Darkest Moon (Shadow Guild: Wolf Queen Book 1) by Linsey Hall

Rating: 4 out of 5.

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.

My Review

Secrets, a murder investigation, and a Curse will leave you hooked on this book. 

The book begins, and we get immediately introduced to our main character Eve. I loved the setting of a city of magic that includes all our favorite fantasy characters. Although this one is focused on shifters, this fantasy land truly has the intrigue to add more to any story. 

Eve is calculating, shy, hiding a huge secret, and of course, in the wrong place at the wrong time. These circumstances set the reader up, right in the middle of a conflict within the characters and even into this book’s mystery. 

I enjoyed Eve’s personality info, like her chocolate addiction and even her secret. It made me want to know more about her and this story. 

 After an event of misfortune Eve is put in the exact spot she doesn’t want to be. She is forced to work with the one person she doesn’t want to her mate Alpha Lachlan. 

What is she hiding? 

Who is the murderer? 


What is she going to do about it? 

So many questions as you read this mysterious story. The author really thought about her character development and descriptions. 

I truly enjoyed the intrigue. It kept me guessing thru the book. Of course, the characters’ chemistry and the plot, even twisted and tangled was fascinating to unravel, leaving me wanting more. 

So excited to read the following Book, Wild Hunt (Shadow Guild: Wolf Queen book 2), and see what’s to become of Eve and Lachlan.
