Synopsis (Goodreads):

Telekinetic Special Agent Beatrice Alexander has fought hordes of zombies, psychotic vampires, and even a troll. But now she faces her greatest challenge: love.

Fully recovered from her holiday from hell, Bea has returned to the F.R.E.A.K.S. with a mission, to gain the love of her werewolf teammate, Will Price. Of course nothing is ever easy when it comes to love and war. And when the killing fields of a pack of murderous werewolves is discovered in the wilds of North Carolina, the situation goes from complicated to deadly. Because though Bea always seems to get her man or beast in the end, this time she isn’t sure she will survive with her love intact. Or with her life…
Thoughts on High Moon: The end of this book kinda hit hard. I guess I should throw in that I started this series with this book (yeah, I'm a rebel like that. Books 1-3? Pfft. I can just start on 4!) and I was still shocked by the ending. I won't say it came out of nowhere, because it didn't. There were clues sprinkled in along the way. It was just... whoa. Didn't expect it would go in that direction despite the foreshadowing.

So. Now that my dirty secrets about not reading the previous books in the series has been revealed, I'll say this was a interesting read. Bea's love life is kinda screwy (she has her heart set on her werewolf teammate, but she has a very close relationship with the vampire in the group which causes tennnnsion.) and it distracts her at some very inopportune moments.

Like when she's supposed to be focusing on tracking down the werewolves going all serial killer in the wilds. Let's face it, that's not a good time to be distracted. And her distraction costs her.

Big time.

While I think Bea has the guts and the drive to bounce back from everything that happened to her, she's in a bad place mentally by the time the end of this book rolls around. What's in store for her next? No idea. But it sounds like there are always nasty critters who need to be stopped. She just has to decide if she wants to be one of the ones who stops them.
