As a werewolf, Talon is no stranger to secrets, and he can sense that the psychic Kenna is keeping something from him. But Talon is powerfully drawn to the mysterious stranger, and the urge to claim her is just as strong as the instinct to keep himself guarded. With impossible secrets keeping them apart and the threat from the other world drawing near, their fate hangs in the balance— unless they can learn to trust each other.

Kenna has been sent to Earth from another dimension to gather intelligence about the land. Enslaved to the evil half dragon, half vampire Vandar, she is trained to be able to pass as an Earth woman, and sent through a portal. She arrives during a storm, and becomes trapped under a massive tree toppled by lightning, and is rescued by Talon Marshall, a man who leads wilderness trips. Both are hiding their own secrets; he’s a wolf shifter, she’s a psychic from another dimension. But the attraction they feel is very real. Can this attraction become more, and can Kenna break the hold Vandar has over her mind and save Earth from becoming enslaved as her world is?

Dragon Moon is the ninth book in Rebecca York’s Moon series. I found the book to be an interesting story, although early on in the book, I was a bit overwhelmed with information. I did find her characters to be very real, and, within the confines of this story, very well defined. The attraction between Kenna and Talon was handled quite realistically, as were the initial difficulties Kenna experienced in the modern day Earth of Talon’s life. Talon’s confusion over what Kenna is hiding is natural, and he mistrusts her motives, even as he is attracted to her. When he realizes he is bonding with her, he is surprised, as he has always been a lone wolf, living apart from the pack.

Once the story opened up, I found that I enjoyed this world that Rebecca York created. I don’t know if not having read the other books in the Moon series had an impact on how I looked at this one or not. I was delighted to meet Talon’s cousins and their mates, and there were several pleasant surprises along the way. Is there a happy ever after for Talon and Kenna? Yes, but they have to work for it and they have a lot of help getting there.
