Gina Farago. Luna. Randleman, NC: NeDeo Press, 2008.

Ivy Cole needs a fresh start. Five years ago, she was at the center of a series of violent murders in mountainous Doe Springs, North Carolina. Ivy is a werewolf, and she “feeds” on the bad guys. When the local police department caught on to her, Ivy had to flee. Now making a new life with Luna, her five- year old daughter, in Salty Duck, North Carolina, Ivy begins to feel comfortable, assuring herself that they are safe. Ivy knows that her pup shares her lycanthropic powers, but she soon realizes that Luna is unique. Whereas Ivy can only shape shift during a full moon, Luna is able to transform herself at will. This special quality makes Luna desirable to the Order of Lykanthrop, an organization in Germany that studies and breeds werewolves. In an action-packed recovery effort that involves boats and helicopters, Ivy – and an unusual cast of characters from Doe Springs who have found her seeking justice and answers – protects her daughter from a lab-rat fate. Once again, however, Ivy and Luna must run away and start anew – this time with the former deputy of Doe Springs, Ivy’s old flame and Luna’s father.

Luna is the sequel to Ivy Cole and the Moon.

Gina Farago. Ivy Cole and the Moon. Greensboro, NC: NeDeo Press, 2005.

First a few animals–cattle and then pigs–were savagely killed by an unknown assailant. The people in the town of Doe Springs assumed the assailant was a wild animal, the kind that live in the nearby mountains.  Then people started to die in the same manner, and the townsfolk begin to fear that a human–or superhuman–killer is in their midst. Ivy Cole knows that they’re right, because she’s that killer.  Ivy is a werewolf, but she has the power to control herself, and she attacks only people who she thinks deserve to die.  But soon Ivy’s world is turned upside down when people close to her begin to die, and it’s clear that she’s not the only murderer in Doe Springs. Ivy needs to find that other killer before Sheriff Gloria Hubbard and an outside expert find out about her powers.
