Dark Guardian #4: Shadow of the Moon by Rachel Hawthorne

Dark Guardian #4: Shadow of the Moon by Rachel Hawthorne
Publication Date: March 23, 2010
Versions: paperback, kindle

Summary (from
I can feel every Shifter's emotions except Daniel's—the only one whose heart I long to know.

Hayden was born a werewolf, a Dark Guardian. But her ability to sense the feelings of fellow werewolves has made her life unbearable. She runs away, only to be tracked by charming, mysterious Daniel, a newcomer to the pack and the one Shifter immune to her powers. As she reluctantly follows him home, Hayden finds herself falling dangerously in love. . . .

But even as her feelings for Daniel deepen, Hayden begins to wonder if he is who he claims to be. Where did he come from and why has no one ever seen him transform? When they stumble upon the body of a Shifter still in wolf form, her worries grow. Someone is killing her kind. Is her handsome tracker really a hunter? And is Hayden now his prey?

I'm a big fan of Rachel Hawthorne and her Dark Guardian series. And even though I loved the first three in this series, I wasn't as pleased with this one. The beginning was amazing and I loved how it was so different. But then the middle came and she threw in that big plot twist which kind of threw me away from the book a little. I also didn't like the fact that all her other Dark Guardian books were written about highschoolers and this one had older characters (which I'm not as drawn to).

It was overall an ok book but I'll defiantly continue on with this series. That is if she writes more in this series, which I dearly hope she does.

Will I reread it?

Oh, I've read the first three and am waiting on this one from the library. I'm sorry you didn't like it as much, hopefully if there are more they will be better! :) Great review!
