Review of Moon by Laurann Dohner


5 out of 5 stars. Very adult sexy content and plenty of action and supense to spare!

Betrayed by his mind, Moon was shot by the enemy with mind altering chemical and now he his mind is his own greatest enemy, forcing him to attack all that are close to him. Years ago the one that was able to get closest has already harmed him the most, and his fragmented mind can only focus on broken memories of her.

Joy has lived with regret for years having to walk away from Moon, but nothing can make her leave him now. If there is any chance of bringing Moon back from the insanity that forces him to viscously attack all that he knows and loves, she is willing. Anything, that included sacrificing her own body and soul for him.

Moon's tortured mind keeps having these flares of telling him to kill the human. The humans have always been bad news for his people, but he can't bring himself to do it. All he wants to do is sink himself into her and all others be damned. The amazing thing is that doing that seems to be unlocking moments of sanity...where he remembers exactly what she did to him before.
Reading this book was a  nail biter at times. Joy has to fight not just the New Species people to help Moon, but she also has to fight Moon to help him, and the whole time she knows that there is no guarantee they will find an answer. All she knows is that she has to keep trying because she can never give up on the one she loves. I just kept wanting to yell at everyone that doubted her and tried to get in her way.
 Moon is tormented and aware only at times that his mind is full of holes.  These moments of awareness are usually preceeded by those thoughts of  "kill the human" making  everything so much harder for him because his first memories being alive are of being tortured by humans.  It is heart wrenching to watch him go through these emotions because he quickly starts to beat himself up when he realizes how close he comes to killing the one woman he has ever loved, Joy. Is it enough of a lifeline for him to hag on to his sanity though?
