Where was this gem hidden? How didn’t I find it before? I’m a paranormal junkie who loves a good end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it theme! Apocalyptic Moon has it all! Werewolves, wait, let me re-phrase that, a HOT Alpha werewolf, a strong female who lives under a family curse of an early death, who discovers she is more than a mere human, humans acting inhumanely, and zombies. Add to that, the fabulous writing talent of author Eva Gordon, who has nailed this story to the wall and I’m in book heaven! Zombies are taking over the world with just one bite, infecting humans, turning them, one by one and science has found no cure. Dora is a doctor in a family where many of the women die on their twenty-seventh birthday, and guess where the book opens? Yep, Dora’s birthday and she is waiting for the grim reaper to show up, anytime. Instead, she is bitten by an infected zombie with Z-Phage (the virus) and does not get sick so she gets shuffled off to a super-secret underground facility where she gets to be a prisoner/lab rat. Dirk, a strong alpha werewolf is captured and brought in because werewolves are immune to the Z-Phage virus, also. In spite of the circumstances, when Dora sees his hotness through the glass that separates them, she finds a plus side to this nightmare! (Bad Dora…;) )
After discovering that they can communicate telepathically, Dirk and Dora plan their escape, which is about all they seem to be able to agree on. Will these two hard-headed people succeed in saving themselves before they strangle each other? What is the mystery of Dora’s immunity? Is there more in the cards for them, together as a couple or will that be impossible? Will they find their HEA, in spite of the world crumbling around them?
Eva Gordon’s Dora is smart, funny, gutsy, girly and snarky as heck with a heart as big as Texas! When she needs them, her claws come out in force! Dirk is strong, very alpha, loyal to his pack, and has a soft heart hidden in there. Just ask him about Fang! His motorcycle is bad and he is the perfect bad boy you love! Ms. Gordon’s version of boy meets girl is one of the best! You’ll love the interaction, the stereotypes, the action and the pace of this read! And please, remember to get the scoop on Fang!
