There’s plenty of action and a lot of the book felt like a movie to me. Vivid descriptions and dramatic writing definitely set the overall tone for this book. ~ Under the Covers

In the finale of the Blood Moon Rising trilogy, Karin Tabke wastes no time in getting to the good stuff. BLOOD VOW dives right into the action where BLOODRIGHT left off. Falon discovers something integral about herself in this book – she is the daughter of the Master Slayer who murdered Rafael and Lucien’s parents. This makes her a Lycan and Slayer hybrid, a forbidden mix that is sure to cause the shifter’s hackles to rise. Tempted to tell both Rafa and Lucas of her identity, but afraid that they will shun her, Falon is at a loss of what to do.

Meanwhile, Rafa and Luca are pitted against each other as they try to take Falon for themselves. Not one to share their woman, both alphas will have to decide if Falon’s desires of having them both together is enough for them to manage. For most of the book, Falon tries to persuade the guys into this threesome relationship. However, it seems that Falon has her work cut out for her because the men are not willing to budge.

I enjoyed this last installment to the series. There’s plenty of action and a lot of the book felt like a movie to me. Vivid descriptions and dramatic writing definitely set the overall tone for this book. There are even some great “what the hell just happened?” moments that made for a crazy fun reading experience.

I was most interested in the matter of whom Falon will end up with. In the first two books, Tabke has created a great romance between Falon and both Lucien and Rafael. The choice would be difficult. However, I liked the way the author ended it. It brought a sense of satisfaction in knowing the right thing happened.

But perhaps the best thing about this series is Falon and her strength. Juggling two, possessive, alpha men is a hardship, yet Falon seems to have the inner strength of a thousand men. The author needed a heroine who could carry this series and I think she accomplished that very well in Falon. Falon is one lucky girl!

About Karin Tabke

For a long time, controlled chaos ruled Karin’s life. Busy mother of four, owner of her own successful business and wife to a street cop, she harbored thoughts of twisting plots and hot romantic scenes. Now, with only one child left at home and hubby retired from law enforcement, Karin happily pounds out those steamy scenes at her keyboard.

Still semi-distracted by her adult children (Yay! no more phone calls from the high school!) and her husband now a successful football coach (Yay! No more worrying when he’s out on the street!), Karin turns out stories about hot cops, bold knights, bad boy werewolves, and the women who bring them to their knees.

A full-time writer, Karin draws on a lifetime of stories and backdrops that few outside of the law enforcement community ever see, let alone hear about. Controlled chaos now reins supreme through the pages she writes where hot heroes serve, protect, and pleasure from page one to The End.
