Review: New Moon by Lisa Kessler


Book Description

Jaguar shifter Sebastian Severino is an enigma. He lives alone, works alone, and will die alone. But the night he's attacked by a female werewolf, nothing will ever be the same. And when his young niece is kidnapped, Sebastian, the deadliest assassin Nero has ever produced, will be forced to choose a side...

Isabelle Wood has never taken the easy path. As a bounty hunter and now a bitten werewolf without a mate, she's searching for answers to her father's disappearance while helping to lead an Alphaless Pack. The night she gets the opportunity to take out their enemy, with her blade at his throat, her wolf discovers her mate in the last person she can be with.

My Review

I was really hoping that Sebastian would get his own book since he's been in the last two books that I've read. He intrigued me because I wasn't entirely sure what side he was on and I don't think he really knew when it came down to it who's side he was on either. His father is the head of The Nero Organization who had kidnapped people and did experiments on them. Now his father wanted to kidnap some of the family he didn't know existed until recently *or a couple of books ago* and do more experiments on them. He's not a good guy and Sebastian is really only following orders so that his father doesn't give the order to have him killed or worst. 

Isabelle is Raven's sister and they were both in the last book I read. Raven is now Luke's mate and lives in Reno with his pack. Isabelle was turned into a wolf shifter when Raven bit her when they were being held hostage by the crazy alpha of their pack. Isabelle was a bounty hunter before she got turned and she's still working as one now. 

Their first meeting isn't without a little drama, I mean she did stab him but then she got him medical help so it kinda sorted itself out. Ha! As soon as Isabelle touched Sebastian she knew that he was her fated mate. Sebastian is a jaguar shifter so I'm guessing that's why he didn't feel the pull of the mate bond as soon as she did. It took a little time for him to fall for her but it was obvious that she started getting under his skin right away. 

Isabelle wants information about her father and how he died since she found out that he worked for the Nero Organization. She thinks that because Sebastian's father is the head of the organization and he works for his father that he will have some info for her but she knows he's the enemy because working for those people is what got her father killed. But Sebastian might not be the enemy that she thinks he is and she can't kill him once she knows he's her mate. 

While they are trying to get things sorted between them, he finds out that his niece has been kidnapped by his father and he knows that his father plans on doing experiments on her so when his sister and brother in law ask for his help, he knows that he's going to help even though they don't like or trust him. 

Sebastian's sister is mated to the alpha of the Reno pack and even though the alpha and most of the pack don't trust Sebastion, he's there to help save his niece. The danger was high, the action was great and the romance was so good. I really enjoyed this book. I read that there is a spin off series about the Sedona pack and now I'll have to read that too. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
