Synopsis (Goodreads):
War is a constant threat on Dell Preston's horizon. As beta of the Lorimar pack, her job is to maintain the peace on the new border between Faerie and Earth at all costs. Even if that means playing nice with her ex, Isaac, the fae who savaged her wolf's soul, and Enzo Garza, the flirty witch who ought to be focused on building up their magical defenses instead of tearing down the walls around Dell's heart.

Butler, Tennessee is a pinprick on the map with a diverse population of supernaturals. It's also chockful of humans who are unaware of the magical rift bruising the sky or the otherworldly insurgents raining down into their zipcode.

A local fae's disappearance catches Dell's attention, but she dismisses it as an isolated event. Until it happens again. Unable to ignore the strange happenings in her town, she begins an investigation that uncovers so much more than a simple rash of kidnappings.

Now Dell finds herself at the sharp end of a pointed ultimatum. Find the missing and return them to their families or get ready for prime time. Botch this job, and forget coming soon. The war will become tomorrow's featured attraction instead.
Thoughts on Promise the Moon: Ohhh my dear GAWD. I love this world. I sincerely love it. I mean, sure, I'd die in it in a heartbeat, but I completely love reading about it. I guess I'm trying to say that stepping into Dell's head as she attempts to keep the Lorimar pack doing their thing while the alphas are off playing nice with the conclave makes me happy. So happy. Even when things are all sorts of messed up, I'm thrilled.

And things are all sorts of messed up. Dell's running on fumes. Isaac's reappearance into her life after loving and leaving throws her for a loop. Enzo's nice as far as witches who tortured her packmates go, but he's not the one who's renting space in her heart and there's not much she can do about that.

Oh, and there's the matter of those missing folks.

Things are complicated for the Lorimar pack right now and they really don't look like they'll be getting any better in the near future. FOR REASONS. Big reasons.

Buuuut, we did get some flirty time with Dell's two dudes. Admittedly, one's more flirty than the other, but that happens. I'm rooting for Isaac. He gave us a few hints that there's more to him than you can see on the surface and I like him and Dell together. But all good things take time. That's what I keep telling myself.

Right. So go out and read everything you can find with these characters and this world and this crazy war that's brewing. You'll thank me later. Promise.
