Book Review and Trailer: Apocalyptic Moon by Eva Gordon

Title: Apocalyptic Moon
Author: Eva Gordon
Source: Author Request
Genre: Dystopian Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel
Release Date: May 10, 2013
Reviewed by: Jasmyn

Dr. Dora Adler's life has been in disarray since the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, but when she gets bitten by one of the undead, her whole world is turned upside down.  Held captive in a secret underground lab, the tall, muscular hunk in the next cell is her only hope for salvation.  Unfortunately, he claims to be a werewolf.  Yeah, and she's supposedly a witch.

Dirk Gunderson is an alpha Arbor pack werewolf.  Captured and collared, he's sold to the zombie lab in hopes his blood serum can create a vaccine.  He needs to escape, but not without the hot little brunette witch.

In the midst of enemy werewolves and the hordes of undead, Dirk and Dora's sexual tension ignites a blaze hotter than the desert highway.  Along their journey, they battle the inevitable: a werewolf must never take a witch as a mate.

Yes, you read the genre correctly.  I consider this a dystopian story - one with zombies taking over the world and civilization crumbling.  But that doesn't mean that a werewolf can't meet a witch in a super secret underground medical lab trying to find a cure.  And it doesn't mean that even though they are both prisoners, that they can't fall in love and in happily every after.....right?

Of course there is the ban against werewolves mating with witches, the massive hordes of zombies waiting to eat them, and the general chaos that one would expect at the end of the world.  But that doesn't stop Dirk and Dora from giving everything they can to make it work - screw the rest, they'll deal with it later.

Dora has become one of my favorite heroines, her snarky attitude and determined mindset were a perfect fit for this story.  Loaded with all the action you could ask for, and plenty of hot werewolf all along the way, I finished hoping for more - and I hear there's a second in the works and I can't wait!
