 After a long search for the rebel group of wolf shifters located in the eastern Canadian woods, Brandt Malik finally stumbles upon them while hunting one day. But before he can report back to his alphas, Brandt is captured by the rebels, who take one look at his uniform and believe he’s spying on them for the Bureau of Lupine Affairs. The rebels don’t make any attempt to hide their contempt and mistrust of the former agent, and Brandt is sent to be interrogated by the second in command, Zayne Sala, a powerful and dominant alpha.

Zayne, a huge Alaskan wolf, can’t believe what his senses are telling him when he discovers the good looking BLA agent. This man, this traitor to their kind, can’t be his mate, despite all evidence to the contrary. Despite his growing compulsion for the agent, he takes charge of Brandt and tricks him into leading the rebels back to his camp. They capture the entire group and lead them back in chains to their stronghold. Now it’s up to Brandt and the others to convince the rebels that they’re trustworthy and that they only wish to join the rebellion. Zayne has vowed never to truly mate with Brandt, no matter how painful it is for him to stay away from him, but as it becomes obvious that his plan won’t work, he tries instead to teach his mate proper submissive behavior and ignore his painful past.

As their love struggles to take root, Zayne must learn to trust in Brandt and stand together against the forces trying to tear them apart or risk losing everything.

Rebel Moon by author Shannon West is the second book in the Moonstruck series. I did not read the first book and was not lost. I did like that. It is fun to be able to read a series as a standalone.
Brandt Malik he is watching the rebel camp. He and the other wolves that have escaped the BLA need help fighting. They need stronger army and numbers. They think perhaps the rebels will be the way to go.  Allies are good, especially if you are at war with one of the most powerful groups around.  Brandt is captured and the rebels know he used to work for the BLA, they don’t trust him at all. They are mean and inhospitable. That is all but one.  Zayne is a strong alpha wolf. When he meets Brandt he knows there is something special about him. He cannot allow his pack to kill him. He even might be his mate. But how can that work when they are on opposite sides of a war?  
In this story not only does Brandt and Zayne find each other but everyone gets a surprise about who the rebels are and what everyone has been through along the way. There are many twists and turns in this book that kept me turning the pages.  I cannot wait to see where this series goes next. There is a lot of story in this book. I liked that very much. There is great romance, but it was the story itself that kept me reading. When you want a different take on shifters this is the book to pick up.
