Kenna is a psychic from another world. Her world is one where magic is abundant and is encouraged from a young age. She is enslaved by Vandar, a shape-shifting dragon that drinks blood to survive. Vandar is determined to rule his world and ours. He goes from village to village taking people who are adept at various magical skills. He hopes to send them to our world and bring back information so that he will be able to amass an army to invade and take over. After two failed attempts, he sends Kenna to gather information and weapons so that he can carry out his plans. Kenna is put through many tests and trials so that she will be able to blend in. He also puts wards in her mind so that she will not be able to escape from him. Alone and scared, Kenna stumbles upon Talon Marshall. She finds herself drawn to him, but she is also guarded because of her secret agenda.

Talon Marshall has plenty of his own secrets. He is a werewolf who has broken away from his family to try to live on his own. He stumbles upon Kenna during a major thunderstorm and finds himself intrigued by her. Talon soon realizes that Kenna is keeping important things about herself from him. Despite his internal warnings he vows to help her, but will her secrets only serve to tear them apart?

Dragon Moon is so well written. Rebecca York is great at setting a scene. I felt like I was there looking out at the woods behind Talonís home. The story between Talon and Kenna was great. I was definitely rooting for them all the way through the book. I donít usually read books about werewolves but find myself more and more intrigued. The only reason I gave this less than a five overall was the fact that I have not read the first eight books in this series. As I have said in other reviews, this book can be read by itself but I think the reader would benefit from having read the other books. I will be looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
