BENEATH THE BROKEN MOON – SARAH MAKELA
Beneath the broken moon is a great read and a nice introduction into the characters. For the broken moon series I would have liked more information as to how the moon broke, why and what happened after.
Carmela Santiago is a female werewolf and in this time frame females are needed for breeding as the race is becoming extinct. Her abusive A**hole of a father has a fellow shifter chosen to be her mate she is not at all in favour of this.
While out with her cousin, hunters attack the movie theatre while escaping she is shot and rescued by a vampire Derek Ashmore. Has she gone from bad to worse as werewolves and vampires are sworn enemies. She agrees to go on a date with the man that her father chose. Who seems to be a kind and caring man (werewolf) Brendan Kelly he is not at all what she is expecting. Will this sexy vampire be the end of Carmela’s heart or will she settle for the man her father has chosen for her?
As this is not set in our timeline I felt some more back ground information would have been helpful to clarify what has happened and how they arrived at how they have reached where they are.
Having received this ARC for an honest review. I would recommend this as a good read. I look forward to reading part 2 to see how the rest of the story takes us.

WHOA!! and WOW!! Now THIS is a story that I could oh so happily and eagerly get lost in! In fact I just did! Sarah has definitely outdone herself with this one! I love the mix of species, the hints at what is going on in this world, the little bit of a darker tone to the storyline, but it does have some humor that offsets these parts or lightens things up, not that it is needed mind you! There is so much going on! Sexy parts, funny parts, darker parts, bits that break your heart, bits that make you gasp or say WTF?! You know, everything that makes a great story well…great and keeps you holding your breath and craving more! While this is not “horror” darker, it does have a great deep story that begs you to uncover all of its secrets! This is definitely not a light & fluffy story, which in my opinion is completely fantastic and the perfect draw for me! I am not usually a fan of stories told from the views of multiple first persons, but this one is different. Sarah has written it very beautifully and with each chapter switching viewpoints means that it doesn't flip 'all the time' which makes it quite easy to follow and it also gives insight from each character, letting us in on their thoughts. However it doesn't tell the same scene over & over again from each character which I think is why I am enjoying it very much! It may pick up on the last bit of the last character, but then it takes over and goes forward with the other characters story. Carmella is an interesting person whom I can't wait to get to know better. Same with Derek. I did find it quite interesting that Sarah has chosen to tell actually very little background on the characters, the different species involved or even how many even exist in this world.Read more ›

Carmela Santiago is a werewolf and the only thing her father thinks she’s good for is to breed him some more werewolves. Derek Ashmore is a vampire who saves Carmela from the Cazador or human hunters. And there is an attraction but Werewolves and vampires don’t mix well. And then there is her betrothed she just met Brendan Kelly who seems nice and there’s some attraction there as well. Anything has to be better then under her father’s roof. Well written and very enjoyable story. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only thought floating through my head was the almost-kiss 1 May 2015

I did find it quite interesting that Sarah has chosen to tell actually very little background on the characters, the different species involved or even how many even exist in this world. The story just starts off running - literally - and you get bits & pieces here and there that keep the storyline moving forward while also giving you the insight as to what is going on and why. This actually drew me in right away and I found myself very disappointed when I got to the ending! I cannot wait to keep reading! I NEED to know what is going to happen! If Carmella doesn't want Derek, I will happily take him off of her hands for her. I haven’t read that many of Sarah’s book as of yet, in fact I have recently started to work my way through them all, but this story is by far and away my favorite! I personally think, again having only read a couple of her books so far, that this is in fact her best work to date! I hope that there won’t be too long of a wait between each part of this story! I am usually a very impatient reader, but this one has me itching to get the ENTIRE series RIGHT NOW! So yes, I recommend this to anyone who likes a great, slightly darker, but with some humor, sexy & oh so awesome paranormal story!

4.0 out of 5 stars Totally enjoyed and want more!!! 11 June 2015

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

The cover definitely made me notice it which is why I bought it :)

This is the first part in this novella serial series. If you are not sure what all the means, it is simple :) Novella is the length and for this book about 60 pages. Serial series are where one book is broken into parts or episodes like a TV series. Only with a book serial you can miss any of the parts or you will be missing major content. It must be read in order :) This serial is not complete yet, so this means waiting in between parts and usually at the end of each part is a cliffhanger. If you don’t like cliffhangers, the solution is simple, wait until the whole thing is complete and then read it :) Personally I like not having to wait a whole year for the new book, so I don’t mind serials which are usually published monthly. I am know sure on the rating of this book, but I’m thinking adults only with the violence and abuse.

This is my first time reading Sarah’s work though I know I do own several of her works as I’m a book addict…I just haven’t made time to read them all yet…pesky things like work, son, and life getting in my way ;) I really enjoyed reading this part. She has created a new world that I am still learning about, but it has shifters, vampires, and a blown up moon.

Carmela is a shifter, and she has to put up with quite a bit at home. Her dad needs his butt kick, her mom is abused, and her cousin….well I’m not sure what to think of her yet but so far she needs to be slapped. Derek is a sexy vampire, and he seems like he is a good guy so far….helping out. Brendan only showed up at the end, so I don’t know enough yet to decide if I like him yet. Carmela so far is unsure about both, so we will see if she chooses one or the other or who knows both :) There is some action, and there is definitely some underhanded things going on, but I’m not sure exactly what yet. I just know I liked it and I’m ready for part two :)

I recommend this book to people who like serials with shifters and vampires and that is unique. Off to read the next part :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Serial Starter Full of Angst, Evilness, Suspense, & Sensuality.... 11 May 2015
By J. Faltys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Into a dreary and dangerous post-apocalyptic world there's a war waging between humans and nocturnal creatures (werewolves and vampires) that has them constantly being hunted and fearful of being turned in. This group of hunters, The Cazador, are a deadly and mysterious military group whose insidious plans are just beginning to emerge as they not only kill nocturnes but experiment on them as well. As if living in fear of The Cazador wasn't bad enough, there's the centuries-long battle between werewolves and vampires fueled by arrogance and bigotry. In the middle of all this chaos fate has brought the desperate and injured werewolf Carmela to the doorstep of her vampiric savior Derek for an unforgettable meeting that profoundly affects them and will ultimately change the course of their lives.

Carmela is a shy young woman tired of her father's control and of the bleak future set before her being married to a man of her father's choosing and birthing pup after pup. A moment of rebellion ends with her being shot and meeting a vampire who she can't help being attracted to as he represents freedom and, through his ministrations, feelings of caring and comfort so often missing in her life. Werewolf society has become corrupted resulting in out of control male dominance that has her father physically and emotionally abusing all the women in his home in vivid and painful detail. It's no wonder she's desperate to escape, even with the assistance of a vampire! She's a commodity and, with the meeting of her father's chosen mate at story's end, she's running out of time to make a life of her own choosing. Along with the bleak future facing Carmela is the dismal future for her cousin Chandra. Chandra is a very sympathetic character as she was thrown onto the streets when her parents died leaving her to fend for herself. She's jealous of the opportunities Carmela has as she sees endless abuse in her future from her uncle and it leads to some unpleasant moments between her and Carmela that I fear could get uglier in the future and diminish my sympathy.

Derek has been a vampire a long time and you can sense his becoming tired. He lives a solitary existence pulling away from vampiric duties he once partook in. His only friend is fellow vampire Elliot who provided some comic relief and is trying to keep Derek active. Meeting Carmela excited Derek but confused him as he knows their being together would result in death for them both. He can't get her out of his mind and seeing her with another man brings out a possessive side that I look forward to seeing more of. Derek is a good man, not overtly violent as some vampires are, and his loneliness ate at me and has me rooting for him to claim Carmela for his own.

This was a fast-paced story, with almost too much happening at times to fully flesh out, teeming with sensuality. Carmela's father is truly vile with his deeds repugnant. He's losing control as seen through more and more marks being left on his wife and niece Chandra, and his increasing vileness of acts towards Carmela too. Derek is the only bright spot in her life and thoughts of him sustain her through the violence being done to her. With his possessive side kicking in I look forward to his actions in the next installment as he seems to be a man who takes what he wants...and right now he wants Carmela no matter what the fallout might be. With these strong main characters comes equally compelling secondary characters in the mysterious and playful Elliot and the battered and bruised Chandra. Their short time in the story left a large impact and I hope to see more of them. From the first page to the last this tale laid compelling groundwork for the future, fully immersing me in this gritty and warring world, and has me on edge waiting for the next installment. Fans of the paranormal will want to jump onboard for all the excitement and romance just starting with Beneath the Broken Moon: Part One.

Beneath the Broken Moon part one: Another one knock out the park. This storyline is about a wolf shifter and a vampire romance. A great series from Sarah Makela as in all her books it captures you and don't want it to end. Just in part one there is magic, love, conflict, fantasy, action adventure, political conflict, something for everyone this series. The dialog is so original, imaginative, exciting. With characters that are handsome, sexy, intriguing, little shy, engaging, fascinating and beautiful. Sarah weaves with her expert talent, fantasy paranormal love and she tease us with a story that makes you want it to never end but as this is only the first part WOW. With a cliffhanger that makes you anxious for Part Two of a series.

The storyline takes place in the future. The world is in turmoil from nuclear blast to the moon almost causing the destruction of humans. Now the paranormal is part of normal. The population of humans feels threaten by the werewolves and wants to either kill or capture them for experiment. The werewolves are almost extinct and is use for a food sources for vampire. The vampires and the werewolves has always been age old enemies. Some vampires craved werewolf blood because it is a divine elixir that like a drug to them because it holds a strange allure of power that the werewolves has because of the moon. This just makes the centuries of feuds between the two even more mortal enemies.

Carmela Santiago is a werewolf who lives with an abusive and very manipulative father. She feels her only value is her ability have pups and therefore she is able to mate an alpha werewolf. Her father intends to prearranged a marriage with someone she doesn't even know. Her job is to become a future Alpha Queen and spend her time doing nothing but producing pups so that there is more of her species. But after seeing the horror of her father and mother's loveless marriage and being raised by a cruel and abusive father. Carmela doesn't want to be a part of a arranged mating. She wants to fall in love with her mate and he her so that their life will be full of tenderness and respect. But that's just a dream because she has a noble birth and her father has already decided her future.

Derek Ashmore is a vampire who has lived for centuries and had magic. But before he became a vampire he was a medical doctor. Now Derek is a member of the high Council. But as he watched the beautiful werewolf run from the human hunters he made a split second decision and pull her into his home.
Carmela was hardly ever allowed to leave her home but for once her father allows her to go to the theater with her cousin Chandra. But Carmela and Chandra wanted to stay and watch the late show. Now she wishes she had listen to her gut and stayed home but she didn't want to miss the theater. Now the theater was being raided by the Cazador, human hunters who killed werewolves or capture them for experiments to test their weapons. As Carmela is running away she is shot in the arm by the overweight hunter to slow her down for his partner to catch her. suddenly she is running in the alley she is pulled in a door by a vampire. She thinks the vampire is handsome but werewolves couldn't think vampires was handsome because they are enemies. Derek Ashmore couldn't believe what he had done saved the beautiful werewolf. He gives hisself a excused she needs medical attention. Why else would he do such a foolish thing, they were enemies after all. His first thought was he couldn't let her leave. He wasn't sure what do with her. When Carmela awaken she began to talk and told him that she was to be given to another werewolf arranged by her father and if he let her she wouldn't tell about his home. He just had to trust that she wouldn't tell anyone about him or he could make her forget the whole thing. But could he forget her. Beautiful she werewolf, handsome, sexy vampire and a handsome alpha wolf.

I was give this ARC to read and review. I rated it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Can't hardly wait to read Book Two! Fantastic Entertainment and Awesome Read!

5.0 out of 5 stars DARKLY COMPELLING, COMPLETELY CAPTIVATING AND FANTASTICALLY ENTERTAINING !!! 29 April 2015
By jlswainsboro/Judy Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Beneath The Broken Moon is a brand new shifter/vampire romance series from Sarah Makela and it totally rocks. It has a little bit of everything I love in a great book! If you love fantasy, magic, adventure, social, political and family conflict, action, paranormal beings, romance and angst, then this is definitely the book for you! Please be aware, this is Part One of a series, not a stand alone story, so there is a cliffhanger. The story is exciting, original, imaginative and well written. The characters are fascinating, intriguing and engaging. Makela expertly combines these elements into a brilliantly imaginative work of paranormal romantic fiction and fantasy. And this is only the beginning! The story takes place in a somewhat dystopian future world shattered by a nuclear event on the moon causing the near destruction of the human race. The remaining humans are now aware of the nocturnes and seeing them as a threat, seek to kill or capture them. What better way for a government or the rich to thrive than by oppressing the less fortunate and simultaneously keep down the population. Werewolves are now almost extinct and food sources for vampires are scarce. Even though they were age old enemies, some vampires now craved werewolf blood claiming it to be a divine elixir, almost like a drug that holds a strange allure because of the power the werewolves harness thereby further fueling the centuries old feud between the two mortal enemies. Werewoman Carmela Santiago lives in this strange new world, a werewolf born to an abusive, manipulative father. Her only value being her womb and her ability to be mated to an alpha werewolf, a prearranged marriage with someone she doesn't even know, planned and organized by her cruel father. Her future is to become an Alpha Queen and spend her life unhappy and doing nothing but producing pups to replenish their species. But after being raised by a ruthless, abusive father and seeing firsthand the horror of her parents loveless marriage, she wants no part of a prearranged pairing. She wants nothing more than to be loved and live a life with tenderness and respect. No matter how much she dreamed, she was of noble birth and her future had already been decided. Hmm....I wonder??? Carmen was not allowed to leave her home often but her father has finally agreed to allow her to go to the theater with her cousin, Chandra. Unfortunately, the theater is raided by the Cazador, human hunters who either kill nocturnes or capture them to use as experiments to test their weapons for maximum efficiency. Carmela is severely injured trying to escape the hunters and is almost captured when she is suddenly rescued by a handsome vampire. Oh my! Did she just think a vampire was handsome? Werewolves didn't think of vampires as handsome or fantasize about them - they are mortal enemies. Nonetheless, vampire Derek Ashmore saves the beautiful young werewolf and even provides medical attention, only because he used to be a medical doctor, of course. Why else would he be guilty of such a foolish act? They were enemies, after all. Maybe because he was attracted to her?? Maybe because he wanted her?? What? He was an ancient and a member of the High Council; He couldn't afford to have such thoughts. She had even admitted to him that she was to be given to another werewolf in a prearranged agreement by her family before she escaped his home. He would just have to trust that she would tell no one about him helping her and forget the whole thing. But could he forget the beautiful, brave young werewoman that was promised to someone else? Hmm....I guess we'll have to read the book. No spoilers from me but I will say this...... Handsome, sexy vampire-check! Handsome alpha wolf shifter-check! Beautiful werewoman-check! Danger, action, suspense, mystery and malevolent enemies-check! Instant attraction, romance and angst-you bet! I can hardly wait to read Book Two! Fabulous Entertainment and an awesome read!
