A page-turning paranormal suspense novel about a woman fighting for a new life—and the bite that shifts everything.
"A deeply satisfying tale . . . werewolf fans should check this out." —Publishers Weekly
To escape her violent ex, Charlotte flees her home in the middle of the night with nothing but the cash in her pocket and a paper map leading her north to Alaska. She sheds her old self along the way: dyeing her hair, scrubbing off her fake California tan, and pawning all her jewelry. None of it is worth anything if she can’t stay alive.
Alone in the wilderness, Charlotte feels safe at last. Even if she’s lost, even if she’s only got a burner phone that lost its last bar miles ago, and even if she missed her turn and can’t find the cabin she was promised by a friend. Tucked into a sleeping bag in the back seat of her ancient truck, she’s finally living life on her own terms.
But that feeling is short-lived. In the middle of the woods, Charlotte’s attacked, brutally, unforgivingly—and something bites her leg. And it’s a bite that will change her life forever.
About the Author
Z.W. Taylor grew up in Texas where the stories are as big as the hair that seems to float around Dallas. Writing was always a hobby, and a good story was something she never stopped chasing. Together, she finds herself diving into world's that continually test the lengths of her imagination. When she is not writing, she's wondering why her coffee pot sounds like a boggart when it gurgles, debating on whether or not her cat is plotting against her, and constantly filling blank pages with many ideas for the future.
“Ultimately, Charlotte's survival comes down to finding her own inner strength, supported by budding friendships with the werewolves and vampires around her. The well-developed characters make this an easy read that is set up nicely for additional books in the series." —Booklist
“Taylor’s debut wraps a deeply satisfying tale of escaping partner abuse, claiming rightful rage, and building supportive relationships in the tropes of werewolf transformation . . . The sweet focus on healing and found family sets this apart. Werewolf fans should check this out.” —Publisher’s Weekly
“Z.W. Taylor knows how to write strong, engaging characters that jump off the page and directly into your heart. Get ready to be sucked into an action-packed, gritty world with the best found family trope around. The Hunt is unputdownable!” —Lynn Rush, USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author
"After a stunning debut, Z.W. Taylor is back and looking for a fresh kill with The Hunt—a fleet-footed follow-up to 2023's The Bite. With fan favorites Charlotte and Levi at the helm, the plot is chock-full of action, romance, and suspense; but it's Taylor's incisive prose and sardonic humor that truly make the pages sing. The Hunt is a thrilling addition to The Moon Blood Saga, and fans of Patricia Briggs or Stephenie Meyer will surely want to sink their teeth into Taylor's latest offering." —James Wade, Spur Award-winning author of Beasts of the Earth
