All Blake Savage ever wanted was to find his mate and settle down but the death of the previous Alpha pushed him into the leadership role himself. He loves his pack, but times have been tough lately with many of its members either sick or dying and no one has a clue as to why. He doesn’t have time to be attracted to Wade Collins, the pack Alpha who brings Eric, the Chosen One and his mate home, but that’s exactly what happens. It’s a shock to both Wade and Blake, but their being together triggers another important portion of the ancient prophecy, which they’re shown during a visit by the Ancient Ones. It may be difficult to understand but they play a vital role in keeping all the packs alive but when it’s all over, can their love and attraction keep them together?

Savage Moon Rising is the second release in Leiland Dale’s new Ancient Prophecy series and parts of the beginning slightly overlaps the first book, A Prophecy of Destiny. With that in mind, I feel for better overall story arc understanding, it would be best for the books to be read in order.

The story starts off swiftly and while it doesn’t stay at breakneck speed for the entire length, it continues at a good clip, picking up speed again near the end. There are plenty of high emotions, passion and sex between Alpha/mates Wade and Blake and a plethora of plot twists when more of the prophecy is revealed. Add to this some intriguing supporting characters and you have all the components added to keep the readers interested and the pages turning. Some of the new additions to the story are particularly interesting…Vampire Liviano De Luca and his family. I can’t wait to see what happens with him and maybe Darren???? Watch for the next book in the series.
