The Hunter's Moon by Beth Trissel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Beth Trissel’s The Hunter's Moon has an interesting combination of history, fantasy, and paranormal. Seventeen-year-old Morgan Daniel and her ten-year-old brother Jimmy have been in witness protection after observing a murder by the head of the Panteras. The gang chases them through the Shenandoah Mountain in Virginia where they are rescued by wolves from the Wapicoli, discovering a world they did not know existed.
The way Jackson and Morgan spoke, threw me for a loop a few times. Sometimes they would talk really formal and almost old, then they would say something like “freaking awesome” that made them seem more the seventeen-year-olds they are. It didn’t seem consistent to me.
I like Jimmy. He was very wise for a ten-year-old. He was always good for some fascinating information.
I enjoyed the historical aspect of the story dating back to the American Revolution, and Daniel Morgan. I thought the background of the Morcants and Wapicoli was a good concept. The Panteras are noteworthy enemies. Mateo was a lethal adversary.
I liked the setting; it made the plot seem convincing. At 133 pages, the story was a quick read. This story is appropriate for young adults.
