[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Shadow of the Blood Moon
Robin Waldrop is a wife and mother, grandmother, business owner, and author of YA/Urban Fantasy Paranormal novels. TIES TO THE BLOOD MOON is book 1 in her series and is available on all digital sites and also in print and audio.
Ties to the Blood Moon, Book #1 of the BLOOD MOON series
Author: Robin Waldrop
Genevieve is a teenage girl who moves in with her aunt in Alaska after the death of her mother. Soon after her arrival she learns the things she was raised to believe only existed in fairytales are in fact a big part of her history. When it gets to be too much she seeks refuge in the arms of her new boyfriend, William, only to find out he's not who she thought he was either.
Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
After Robin left me completely wanting more at the conclusion of Book #1, Ties to the Blood Moon, I couldn't help but dive into Shadow of the Blood Moon immediately.
Picking up right where Ties to the Blood Moon left off, Gen and gang are on a mission to set things right within the supernatural community and fulfill her destiny as the Adlet Princess, despite all of the changtes in plan that took place during book #1 (you're ust going to have to read it to find out what I'm talking about). :)
Traveling overseas, William and Gen are on their way to a meeting with the head vampire when all hell breaks loose. Dishonestly, distrust, discord and mayhem ensue, and it makes for one heck of a read.
Like book #1, there were plenty of twists and turns to keep me flipping pages frantically to find out what would happen next. Like in book #1 as well, the characters were well developed and force the reader to feel for them, one way or another. Unfortunately, my feelings toward Gen in this installment were not very positive. She was too short tempered, too whiny, and too selfish. It did however lend to the overall storyline, and I can only hope that given what her attitude costs her in this book, she'll learn...
Robin leaves us hanging at the end of this book as well, and I was utterly frustrated that book #3 won't be out until around Halloween.
My dislike for Gen aside, LITERAL ADDICTION gives Shadow of the Blood Moon 4 Skulls for the story, the intrigue and the growth of the supporting cast.
