Remy’s life revolves around cars with high powered engines. Getting summoned to the alpha house is bad news and learning he’s supposed to kill a captured vampire is even worse. He won’t do it. His refusal leads to a challenge for the Alpha position and to the surprise of everyone, Remy wins. Now what’s he going to do? He knows engines, not how to run a pack.

One thing’s immediately clear, the wounded vampire is Remy’s mate and Skylar had been sent by his coven to investigate a vampire poison. Skylar’s everything Remy could have asked for in a mate—except he’s blind. It doesn’t take long for him to realize that Skylar’s other senses make up for his blindness and that together they make an unstoppable team. But can they find out whose interfering with how mates are scented and what’s poisoning vampires before it’s too last?

Blind Under the Moon is the first release in the new paranormal series Blood Moon Pack Alliance by SA Welsh. This author is new to me but as a shifter and vampire genre fan, I had to give this book a try, and I wasn’t disappointed.

Remy, as the reluctant new Alpha, is a good character and watching him grow into the role of leader is handled well.  He’s also a likable guy with a nicely rounded personality and he’s fair to his pack as his learns his way. Skylar, as his vampire mate isn’t a particularly original pairing but it’s one I’ve always like. Skylar’s an interesting guy too and giving him, as a vampire, a physical disability—being blind—is a creative twist I didn’t expect, and it works well within the plot line. 

The world building could have been more in depth and I expect to learn more as the series continues but the details provided so far are vivid. The pace is fast, the plot line entertaining, I thoroughly enjoyed the romance between Remy and Skylar and there’s enough action and danger to keep the pages turning. I liked Blind Under the Moon and can’t wait for the next one.
