St. Martin's Moon by Marc Vun Kannon

Title: St. Martin's Moon
Author: Marc Vun Kannon
Genre: Science Fiction
Publisher: Echelon Press Publishing (May 30, 2011)
Available: $13.99 PB/$2.99 kindle at Amazon 
Rating: 4.25 stars
Rater: Dihanna

Plot summary:  Joseph Marquand is Earth’s best werewolf hunter. He is called to the Moon to hunt the vermin, and to do his level best to make the Moon a safe place for normal humans to live. Unfortunately, however, his own demons are complicating his focus - and as you can imagine, the werewolves have entirely different plans. 

The good: This author is an exceptionally skilled writer with a vivid imagination. His plot is original and well thought out, his descriptions are well written, and the adventure is non-stop. I enjoyed every page, and found the story immensely satisfying.

But: This is a profoundly masculine book that not only includes a lot of fighting, but is told from a distinctly male perspective. There are really no women present, and no women’s points of view, and despite trying very hard, I couldn’t quite connect with the protagonist. 

In sum: I highly recommend this book to all lovers of science fiction. The story is both well told and satisfying.
