Innocent and gullible, Dey allows herself to be easily manipulated by her best friend Luna. Luna, a half-Human and half-Beast, has a fondness for tomb-raiding and she has found the perfect partner in Dey. After having been caught more than once, Luna`s latest escapade ends up placing both of them in a compromising position. As a result, they both are exiled. Luna is banished from the settlement, sent to live with the Beasts for 3 years. Dey is given two options: she has to either go with the Beasts, but separated from her friend Luna, or to the dangerous swamp lands. She will not be allowed to return to the settlement for one full year. Dey chooses the swamp.

Keg has been Dey`s bane since they met. To make matters worse, he is one of two people responsible for law enforcement in the settlement. Even though the attraction is mutual, they seem to be constantly at odds with each other. Sadly, he has no choice but to enforce the council`s ruling against Dey and Luna. More than one year passes by before he learns that Dey survived her she the same Dey that he remembers?

Novella length “Bad Moon Rising” is the third installment in Autumn Dawn`s Bad Lands series. Even though the book is related to the previous two and a few characters from “Something Wild This Way Comes” make an appearance, it can be read as a stand-alone without problems.

“Bad Moon Rising” provides a quick read filled with action and two well drawn main characters that truly are the heart of the whole story. Dey makes for a strong but not overtly stubborn heroine. She is a survivor in the truest sense of the word. As to Keg, he is her perfect match, a true alpha with a soft spot for his woman. I could not help but feel for him. I have to say that Ms. Dawn consistently creates wonderfully engaging main characters for all her stories, and this book is not the exception. This story will certainly appeal not only to Ms. Dawn`s fans but also to futuristic romance lovers, and definitely, if you have been following this series, you need to add this title to your collection.
