Master of the Moon is the second novel in my Mageverse series. Diana London is city administrator of Verdaville, S.C. She's also a werewolf who helps out the chronically shorthanded Verdaville Police Department by moonlighting as a police K-9.

But even Diana starts wondering if she's bitten off more than she can chew when a serial killer comes to Verdaville. This particular killer isn't your average psycho - she's a vampire sorcerer who kills men to power her black magic.

Then the King of the Fairies shows up, and things get really weird...

A long time ago:

When the Dark Ones ruled the Earth a battle for freedom mortally wounded a king. To prevent his two sons from going to war with each other he gave them both a kingdom and with his last breath he cursed them, should on harm they other it would be returned three times and it would kill them both. The oldest, Ansgar hated his younger brother Llyr, for he was the Heir to heroes.

Present day:

Diana was beside a city manager a volunteer with the police department and her unique abilities to shapeshift in a K9 gave them a lot more clues of the crimes committed. Tonight a young man was viciously murdered and as a Shepard dog she tracked the scent of the murderer and got acquainted with a vampires from hell. No one murdered in her town and Diana transformed into a Dire Wolf, the strongest form she could turn into but still the bitch had escaped. Tired and unsatisfied she returns home...

Master of the Moon is a delicious read, it's got everything I want, past events whom have their effect on the future, dark evil versus good, a impossible love, fast paced action, magic and a good doses of hot plundering passion. I absolutely love the fact that Angela Knight creates pure evil, no tragic past, no dramatic event or survival strategy that explains the evil... no just a real villain that I can be pissed at and want to let him have a taste of his own medicine. With Diana we get to know a new race, the Direkind... who they are, how they come to be and she adds a spicy flavour to the story. It picks you up and doesn't let you go, although at three quarters of the book the erotic interaction takes the story a bit over it doesn't get the chance to irritate, because before you know it your in a final that is filled with action thrilling scenes and the ending is very, very satisfying!!
