From USA Today Bestselling Author Aileen Erin

Chris is the guy Cosette always wanted.

Fun. Funny. Lighthearted and sweet. Chris always manages to find beauty and laughter, even when fighting a chapel full of demons. He’s exactly what she needs. Except he’s a werewolf and she’s a member of the Lunar Court — the only fey court that holds sway over the werewolves. Even on his best day, Chris isn’t strong enough to last a few hours in the Lunar Court without becoming a slave. No matter how much Cosette’s heart wants him, she knows she has to let him go.

But when Chris goes missing, Cosette realizes how much she has to lose if the worst happens. Except her mother — the Queen of the Lunar Court — won’t let her go after Chris. Being forced to stay at court is dangerous for Cosette. Assassins keep coming after her, and unless she accepts a mate, it’s only a matter of time before one of them kills her.

Cosette is the girl Chris has always dreamed of.

Chris sees through the tough facade to the girl exhausted from a lifetime of fighting off assassins and court politics. She needs a true friend, someone who she can be herself around, and craves solitude. The same solitude that Chris craves. But he knows he’ll never be enough to survive in her world. So, when Eli — a mysterious archon — requests his help, he figures why not? The guy might be a little shady, but he needs every distraction he can get.

But when Eli says that Cosette’s in trouble, Chris is more than ready to play by Eli’s rules. At least until Eli takes him to the Court of Gales. Chris knows he’s about to play a very dangerous game. Bargaining with the fey is something only a desperate person would do. But what wouldn’t Chris give up to save Cosette’s life?

“These books go by so very quickly, with the pacing making me think I just started reading. I could gobble up a dozen of these novels!” – Carrie Reads a Lot

“Aileen Erin: You did a great job as usual and I’m so excited for Invocation and Lunar Court.” – Lenniland

My Review:

I love Aileen Erin’s Alpha Girl series and have from the first word in the first book I read which I believe was Shattered Pack book six but I have since read the other six books. I love that each book is about different characters and couples in the Alpha Girl world and can be read in any order and never feel as if you are missing anything and if you want to know more about a character you read in one book then just pick up that character’s book and begin the journey.

Lunar Court is a whirlwind of chaos and action with plenty of twists and turns that will pull you into its world from the first word. Our main lady character Cosette is a fey and a member of the Lunar Court who has fallen for a werewolf which is forbidden in her world. Cosette has fallen for the werewolf Chris.

Chris is a lone werewolf whose pack was killed leaving him the only surviving wolf. Chris has always been a loner even among his own pack. But when he lays eyes on Cosette he is smitten from the beginning and will do anything to claim her as his mate.

When Chris hears that Cosette is in trouble he is willing to play with the devil to save her and claim her as his mate. Chris must make a pack with Eli a mysterious archon so that he can gain entrance to the fey world. He knows that making deals with the fey is not a wise thing to do as it can get you into a whole heap of trouble. But Chris is willing to do or give up whatever it takes to save Cosette. But how far is he willing to go?

I can’t seem to get enough of the Alpha Girl world and all of its magical glory. All of the characters are all so amazingly beautiful creatures or people who have so much love and compassion for others. My heart just ripped into for Cosette with that big twist close to the end there. The hurt and the pain had me in tears and my heart was broke. I can’t wait to check out the next book in the Alpha Girl world.

I highly recommend Lunar Court and all the Alpha Girl novels to all fans of magic, fantasy, werewolves, fey and couples falling in love with their soulmates.
