This is such a good book, I am actually a little surprised. Based on the description I really wasn't sure what to expect. To me the description sounds like there is some sort of communication between the past and present. There's not.
Anyway, the actual story is that Matthew Roarke, (the investigator on leave because of Cara) begins an in depth look into her beginnings trying to get a clear understanding of her past. At the same time he's doing this you get the narrative of her her past in her words as he discovers her reality. The two converge towards the end. I will not spoil this for anyone, it worth the listen.
For people who are fascinated with this series as I am, this book is very enlightening as gives much background info how this woman's personality was formed.
For anyone who has never read/listened to any of the Huntress Moon series I would recommend that they be listened to in order. Each book builds on the previous and there is carryover from one to the next that can't be appreciated otherwise.
R C Bray narrates this book as well as the others in this series. If you've never listened to him before he is GREAT! I initially found this series when searching for books that he narrated.

My husband and I have been waiting a long time for this to come out. I do not know how we missed it sure glad we looked again. What makes this a great read is not only the narrator which is wonderful but we get to see Cara as a young teen. I think this really bring the story home, yes we heard about it in other books but this goes in to detail that really hits home and pulls you in making you feel even more for a young girl that turned into a serial killer. It is very hard not to like Cara and really feel her pain, in the first book it took a little time but after that I felt she was like my own daughter. There really are monsters out there and she is taking them out one at a time, she is my hero, someone we shouldn’t look up to but we have to. I am sure you will feel the same after you read her story of a killer that killed her family and all the evil people out there that tried their best to either kill her, abuse her or kill and abuse others.
Roarke is one of a kind he is torn between right and wrong, it is hard to feel that Cara is wrong when the ones she hunts are really the bad ones doing terrible wrong things. They say two wrongs don’t make a right but it is really hard to use that logic with these people. If Cara is the dark side Roarke would be the white side. He is leaning more to the dark side that is why he took a break from things where things not black and white for him anymore. It is hard to him to hunt down Cara again to bring her in for justice when really she is doing justice for all those that can’t help their selves and has been doing it from a very young age. I loved how he took on this new story finding clues from a cold case that Cara may have thought she took care of. He need justice for those poor girls and he works hard to find it.
As always Mr. Bray’s narration is outstanding. I fell in love with his narration from the very first blue moon story. He really hits the emotions right on the money giving you a wonderful emotional listen pulling you in letting your mind take over creating a picture of each scene that is very vivid in your mind. His character voices really show emotion pulling the listen in with a compelling listen and a powerful voice that is clear, deep that it really pulls you. It is hard to pick up one of the Moon audio’s and not feel the powerful emotion he bring to it. There was no background noise the music at the first goes very well with the story it gets you prepared for what is about to happen. There are no repeats of works just a crisp, clean, clear audio that delivers a wonderful story of evil, power, killing, victims, heroes and a monster that lives right in your town. He male voices are just as wonderful as his female ones. You always know who is talking and just what they are feeling. I have no trouble feeling the evil that is around these characters as he paints a wonderful picture in your mind that you have no trouble picturing. This is one of my favorite series along with one of my favorite narrators.
The author really knows how to pull you in giving you a compelling listen leaving your mouth hung open as danger comes near. Just when you think you have worked out who, what and where she changes that on you leaving you to start over. I really understood Roarke how he was driven but yet torn between right and wrong. I understood why he needed a break but at the same time why he needed more answers. As he pulls you in your heart goes out to so many, at times you wish you could be Cara taking away her pain but mostly taking out the evil that is so alive all around.
I really enjoyed seeing Cara as a young girl who not only took care of herself but others. I really liked hearing more about her foster homes and the friends she made and those she didn’t like. The author goes in wonderful detail about how she learned how to drive at a young age, the closeness she had with a foster child. The victims of other young children, the killing of those that hurt those children How Roarke worked out who the monsters where and how he got them justice after so many years. It really is a powerful story with powerful meaning and wonderful characters that really breaks your heart. I wish with everything that was in me that I could pull these characters out of this story. For me the characters became real, I felt their pain, their fear and their heart break. I found myself cheering when another one was taken out. I found myself talking to the characters as well as beep beeping a few. I really got into this story from start to finish. This can be read as a standalone but really to get the full effect you need to read the series. I really have a hard time waiting for the next story to come out. This is one author that pulls all the stops. She has no trouble pulling the reader in giving you a highly entertaining story you can’t put down.

An enjoyable listen. A well written story told with 2 alternating characters through out. I felt it added to the excitement of the ending.
This series is getting worse! Possibly a good idea for story ruined by an overly preachy author. Only got through because R.C. Bray has a voice like liquid gold.
