Book Review of Shadow of the Blood Moon
Book Blurb: “As an Adlet wolf, I had a decent body. After I convinced William to turn me, I woke up to one of the most perfectly shaped bodies I had ever seen-lean, cut, curves in all the right places. Another perk.” P 81
In the first book Gen is turned into a hybrid, a mixture of a wolf and a vampire. The second book in the series furthers her story along. Here we find the four friends going to Prague to go after Genevieve’ s mother long thought to be dead. Zane an Adlet wolf, appears to be the one who kills her mother though before she can get to her. But her problem is Laszlo, the vampire. He finds her ring fascinating and when he has her take it off to give it to him, it weakens Gen. It will increase his power and hold over the race. But she manages to survive thanks to the help of William and her friends. While in Prague they pick up the twin that Gen is told that she has as most Adlet wolves are born in pairs or twins. Her twin, Guinevere, has been living there her whole life. She agrees to flee with the group and get to know her sister. As the group tries to keep ahead of the ones hunting them, they are beset by trouble. The trouble kills one of the group James and no one can save him. One set of twins is down a member. But the other twins remain intact.
As their journey continues the two sisters who had just found each other explore their different stories. Learning what they could about each other’s life. They are on the run taking a train but get followed. So William elects to stay behind to keep them out of their hair. Little did the group know the trouble that William would get in. Peter the hotel concierge where she stayed at when she left William is actually working with Laszlo and happens to know Williams mother, Dahlia. This makes Gen very angry, because Laszlo has plans for her and her ring. He plans to take her away to his summer home to get it together. You have to stay tuned for Book 3 to find out what happens.
I give these book 5 stars. Book One Ties to the Blood Moon starts the story going giving it enough momentum to get you interested. Book Two Shadow of the Blood Moon continues the tradition keeping your appetite wetted. The characters are built into the story as if they are woven in. She ties into also the use of twins to maintain power in the wolf family and how they interact with each other. Remember they originally started this out to find out where Laszlo was to protect their way of life. Now they are on a journey to save a person who has become part of their family.
I recommend that you read both books and purchase book three as well.
Please be advised that I did get the book via a gift certificate from the author that was Book Two. I am not receiving any other compensation for this book review.
