"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

From the moment you open up this book, the action doesn't stop flowing. We're thrown deep into the heart of Julie's plight, watching her do everything possible to protect the child she's brought into the world around her. This is a woman who knows almost nothing about the paranormal world. She was brought into it by accident and has been slowly learning how to navigate through the chaos that now surrounds her.
Sarah has taken this paranormal world a step further, broadening the lore behind all things Werewolf. She's shown us a world where they coexist alongside humans, albeit keeping their existence to a minimum when it comes to the world outside. Werewolves like in packs, far protective of those they love. They mingle amongst themselves, often losing what it means to truly be human. They'll do anything and everything to ensure their survival, including doing away with those who wish to do them harm.
Though Julie has a hard time in dealing with the chaos, she also finds the strength within herself to do whatever is necessary when it comes to Carson. Her friends and family are always there for her, giving her the helping hand she needs. It's refreshing to see her struggles and vulnerabilities displayed in such a way that it allows the reader to relate to her plight. She's resilient, to a point, but she's still a woman who often loses herself to the emotions roiling within her.
Though her existence is tenuous, at best, she's willing to fight for what she believes in. This is what drew me to her. She's been through so much, but she's still determined in remaining level-headed. Everything she does, she does to ensure that her son has a chance to live. He may be the strongest Werewolf out there, but he's still a part of her. Nothing and no one will keep her from protecting him and those she loves.
Tension is a major mood in WAXING MOON which is felt in so many tones from Julie having to deal with conflicting desires for how Julie should live her life to the very real threat of a rival supernatural group bent on killing her son, Carson. Much of the story is action-packed and pretty thrilling to read. What I was most intrigued by was the expansion of the werewolf culture and world along with the new supernatural adversaries, the Salamanders. We get to figure out more about the types of werewolves there are and exactly how their powers work along with their long standing feud with the Salamanders. While I am not a fan of naming a group of people who are not a sports team or actual salamanders, Salamanders, I found them to be excellent and dangerous adversaries especially with their powers which are an exact contrast to the werewolves' powers.
Part of the tension felt between Julie and the werewolf pack is in how they want to care for Carson and in their conversations, we see the insular and at times prejudice nature of the culture the pack wants to indoctrinate Carson into. While the pack is well meaning and generally are good people, I could really feel for Julie in her need to control the situation with Carson and his being a werewolf as much as she can.
Overall, WAXING MOON is a great continuation of this series, that expands on the universe through new threats to Julie, her son, and the pack. There are some new revelations that happen at the very end that assuaged my concerns in the first book about how long the series could go on without feeling like it was in a holding pattern.
