I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (Lop)
Everything about this book and intrigued me and got me curious enough to read. It's about a werewolf, so...
The story is actually a fast-paced one for me. Luna, I love the name, is bitten disguised as being mugged and became a werewolf.
I actually got confused because the details were hazy. Maybe I want it described with more details as to make the images and scenes in my head to be vivid but I feel like the events were rushed.
I didn't feel in depth with the character. I actually wanted to know them better. Yes, I want less details on the physical aspects so i can conjure them on my own, but I also want more than brief descriptions. Less is more but too much less is actually nothing.
The prophecy. Yep, there's one. Its actually lame, I think. It didn't give the story mystery or excitement. The story could go along without it.
The fight. Yes, I love fights. I want gory details, not a quick death that have happened in a blink of an eye. Of course it could, what with the strength and super speed but it could have been described in a slow motion detail.
The love. I was missing the intensity. They're werewolf, they have animal instincts. They should be more primal and animalistic, and quarrelsome and possessive. That would make it very sexy.
But I like the concept of the story. Luna, a turned werewolf fulfilling a destiny falling in love with an Alpha, Riley. Its inevitable, yes. But it still something you want to read.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP)
I give this book a 3.5 to 4 stars.
Riley. I still feel the whole-alpha-I'm-an-animal vibe is missing. I can't feel the alpha vibe/possessive type/animalistic attitude with him. I guess it goes with the way of love of the pack and family and his upbringing? But I want him more powerful than how I was able to feel him.
Luna. The character is strong. I think I'm liking her here. But, those omissions of her, I actually hate her during those scenes. It hurt Riley. But I understand anyway, with all that's been happening, its understandable.
So the events, I feel there's a great improvement with compared to the first book. The events are not rushed and I quite got the feel of the scene.
Something with Nick and Sky, I think there's a possibility there for the book 3.
More into the end of the story, I do get what the Ancient Guardians are saying. But something about the disease is quite a surprise for me because I didn't expect that and there is a cliffhanger! Beware!
This can be read as a stand-alone.
But to better get the feel of the series, it should be read as follows:
1. Nature's Destiny
2. Sapphire's Divinity
3. Guardians Dynasty
The Hunter and the Witch

Short and enjoyable read. It left me hanging in the end though, because I wanted more. I wanted to explore Bethany’s magic and prowess and Lucios’ killer skills. I hope there’s more to their adventure and relationship.
